    That's what I was so confused about: if he was allowed to work while he was on The Bachelorette, then why did he have to leave to go back to work? I'm sure a JED fan will have a logical explanation (smile) but it just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.
    It was my understanding Ed was allowed to work 4 hours a day. Now, mind you, he had a handler and like all of the others, he was filmed virtually 24/7. The contract reads that the contender can be filmed at all times except when he/she is actually physically eliminating ( Please excuse that visual ).
    Anyone with one eye and half good sense can tell that those folks on production knew exactly what was going on - or what was not going on. If Ed was abusing his electronic toy ( whatever it was) by contacting someone in a manner in which he should not, why in the name of Sam Hill did they not take his toy away from him?
    Would somebody please tell me that? Problem solved.

    I am not excusing Ed or anyone for poor behavior, but at the very least we need to look at the entire picture.

    Does Jillian know about the girlfriends? I believe she does. She has made it clear that she reads what is being written; therefore, what we know, she knows. Plus, she also knows what Ed has told her and whatever anybody in production may have shared with her.

    Will she break up with him when whatever comes out? That remains to be seen. So far, that Radar site had no proof - only accusations. If Jillian already knows the full extent, then whatever comes out loses much of its impact to hurt her and thus the relationship.

    One other thing.... I point to Jason and Molly. Quite frankly, they have been extremely and extraordinarily unpopular, and yet they are still together. That is something I did not expect.
    The odds are not in favor of Jill's relationship working , but that is the thing with odds - every once in a while, something works.

    Yes...that is what she said in an interview. Supposedly is costs $60K . . . I really don't like the style. . .I think it fits in with Ed's cheesiness that he picked the most expensive. . . . I think he did it because it was THE most expensive not because of the style.
    Still hopeless to see a GREAT romance!! <3

    I found the whole thing weird and tedious to watch. Kiptyn was just going through the motions. . .Reid. . .. was just a tragic trainwreck . . and Ed. . .it was just smarmy considering the info about the gf.

    Jillian looks so happy with him. Someone mentioned that they don't like the Jillian that is with Ed. . .that she is a different person. I kinda agree. Did anyone notifce in the media circus how he takes charge? He always buts in and says. . ."I will answer this" she cowers back like I dunno. . . a passive? It is a shocker to me.

    I think this whole. . moving to Chicago right away is she doesn't want him out of her sight. . . it is a natural response when confronted with cheating. You stick to them like glue!

    I dunno, I tend to be with jlcaz on this one and have also been for several seasons about this show having jumped the shark. It is just outlandish at times. Even for the most die=hard romantic. I am tired of the retreads and "anything goes" kinda thing.

    Funny. . . More to Love has some of the same music! OMG. In some of the previews though. . .it looks more like "flava of luv" with the girls losing it and such. A shame that they will make it into a farce due to the weight. Nothing like us larger than life girls balling and carrying on. Yech!!!
    Still hopeless to see a GREAT romance!! <3

    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.
    JMO.
    Since the current rumours are being pushed by RS, Jeremy and S*L, does it mean they are in cohort with Fleiss to create the drama? I know Fleiss loves the drama during the show to get viewers. This season is over, no ratings for the next few months. In that time this story could be over for all we know. Unless Wes comes out with a CD. Where does Fleiss come in. me thinks this rumour is beeing driven by the boards not Fleiss.

    I can see Jillian sticking with Ed because she has said commitment is very important to her. I do believe, however, if Ed was "sexting" while he was an engaged man, that is an entirely different story. Perhaps Jillian doesn't mind the sexting like some women don't mind if their man looks at porn. IDK, but if he was indeed sexting while he was engaged to me, I would dump his butt. That is just me though.
    My favorites: Reid and Kiptyn

    Since Jillian claims that she reads the blogs and may have seen these rumors flying around, and Ed somehow convinced her that it's all lies, and she went ahead and chose him anyways. Frankly, IMO there's something wrong with that picture, she must really love him or was desperate to an engagement. There is no reason why any smart woman that has her head screwed on right to even keep such a person around - too much baggage. People are saying she will probably stand by her man, for goodness sake, is not as if this they are married, they have just been dating really for about two weeks publicly and she will stand by her man. If these things happen to be true, she needs to count her losses and move on as fast as she can. She missed doing that by taking him back and making him her f1 but right now, she has no reason to "stand by her man" no reason at all. Ed will not change overnight, may not even change at all. We all know how women want a man so bad they ignore all the red flags hoping that they will be able to change them, it never happens. Jillian cannot change Ed especially considering the circumstance in which they met. Let us not deceive ourselves trying to explain these things with logic. There is no reason for Jillian to stand by Ed if these things are true - they are not married, don't have kids, nothing holding them together.
    ITA, fantastic post!!!

    What I love about this show is the aftermath, esp being patient enough for the truth to be revealed. So the next week will be interesting!
    And if the truth is that Ed has been cheating I will not shed a tear, guys like this need to know that this kind of behaviour is not only disrespectful to all women but also unacceptable. And even though Jill's happiness will be disrupted for a while atleast it won't be a lifetime of being miserable standing by a man who isn't totally committed to her, she deserves better and so do all women!

    Lets have some women code and stop enabling cheaters and making excuses for them!!!!!

    Bloomers, are you suggesting that his handler was reading over his shoulder as he was "working"? Somehow I can't imagine that.

    Dancing with The Stars is on until (Thanksgiving) late November. Given the way the show has performed ratings-wise for them as of late, why would they launch TB around the holidays instead of early January as they did Jason's show?

    Futon Critic says TB is on the winter grid schedule returning in 2010.

    just noticed the Hollywood Gossip and Hollyscoop have also picked up Radar's story. Nothing much new, just it's spreading...
