    Hmmm--that could be what Fleiss is planning on for next season--sorry if I let the cat out of the bag there, I should have reserved that for the spoiler section.
    Secondly, Fleiss comes into this because the show is his baby and he thrives on the type of drama and angst an "Ed" situation would promote. If not "Ed", Fleiss would have done his dam*edest to find a situation that would have stimulated as much talk and debate as the one presently going on. He is probably rubbing his hands together in glee over this mess.

    Monkeys! Donkeys! I never imagined Ed to be that adventurous...

    Good one Kasha!

    All is forgiven. It's just a message board.
    The truth always bubbles to the surface eventually.
    But to those who listened, thank you. It mattered to me, a lot.
    BTW, ABC is getting a kick out of all of this.....they love the buzz.
    I was wondering if you could explaine the "NO LOVE CONNECTION" that you posted regarding this season. Jill had 3 men wanting to propose to her, so I am confused what that meant.

    Also you said that Ed was banned form his favorite Bar, but the bar manager denied that, I have read Jill and him have already been there together, can you tell us what bar it was thanks

    FORT is not responsible for Ed's indiscretions. If any harm comes Jillian's way because of those indiscretions, Ed is the only one to blame. If it turns out that there is no truth to these rumors whatsoever, then Jillian and Ed can laugh about this together.

    It also bears noting that many people here are approaching GF-gate from a place of concern for Jillian. Just because people are discussing it doesn't mean they are maliciously trying to "kill Jillian." And as far as I can tell, this story is breaking into the mainstream media completely independently from FORT.
    Completely agree!!

    And while I'm here, can I add that NO MATTER what RS's motives are (and I was not a fan last season) - he was spot on with his 'scoop'.

    Just wondering if it is to be taken seriously, or like everything else in defense of Ed...should be swept under the rug? I am really trying to view all of this objectively....IF he did all of the "sext"...etc, post reality show....than he sucks and needs to just go away. On the flip side, if even part of what this guy says is true....then this could be a pretty legit explanation of why they (the ex GF)would break up, and why he now wants to try to settle down and re-prioritize his life. (With Jill) I know many will argue that this is just lies promoted by ABC or "whoever"...(although the argument yesterday was that ABC was throwing them under the bus and sitting by to watch the irestorm....so why would they bother......)...but is it any different than RS, Jeremy or Wes...or any poster on this board who has posted things that they knew about Ed to be "true". Not one iota of information that has been posted has come from a first person source...(if I am wrong, please let me know.) By first person I mean...any of the multiple girlfriends, Ed, Jill...etc. For this reason only,....I have sat back and tried not to judge others...those I do not know, and those who do not know me. I have been a victim of gossip....and it is no fun. Just saying I wish we could read all of the posts and view them objectively like we do pictures when we are sluething....
    I think it would be easy to rationalize girlfriend number one but THREE of them....that's quite the task.

    Then why are you (and me) here talking about it? Because it is entertainment! I don't understand why people are offended that we're still on here talking about it, but so are they!!

    I'm thinking 1 proposed because he is 'playing the part' but she was/is in love with him; the other 2 proposed but she wasn't 'there' with them?

    Does this apply to everyone, or just the critics? Because it seems to me that everyone here is engaged in the post-show story in some way-- the critics who are concerned with the truth about GF-gate, and the Jed-heads who have dedicated a thread to Jillian and Ed's post-show relationship.

    I don't think sdl ever stated which bar Ed was "banned" from, and someone else on this board just assumed it was the Blue Frog.
