Time heals, but she's also a cruel beautician.
So IMO we have no way of knowing what Brad originally wrote. Maybe the editor took out some things about Chantal, did some tweaking. Or maybe Brad was told from the beginning how he should write about his F1 and F2 to keep things a mystery.
I remember last season there was a lot of talk about Ali's blogs being proof that Chris was F1, people read into the blogs what we want to see. It's the same as watching the edit on the show. We never know til the FRC airs what was a clue and what was a red herring.
It'd be great if babyfacec could tell us after the season is over how much the blogs were edited, if at all.
I'm a crier. Yes, I'll admit it. I cry when I'm sad, I'll cry when I'm frustrated, when I'm angry, when I'm really happy, and usually at the end of every sad or sappy movie. I'm also a strong, loving, and capable woman who takes care of her family and cares about other people. In no way do I equate my emotional side with weakness or neediness. I will give Chantal a pass on this one. I can understand, though, that others see things differently and that's ok too.
I really don't remember much from previous seasons, but I will say that Ali's tears in the hallway were waaaay more dramatic than Chantal's have ever been. She went on to have her own show, seems happy, and most people like her.
Chantal is not a basket case 24/7. Emily is not a plastic barbie doll 24/7. Ashley is not hyper and drinking too much 24/7
These are the 'characters' that the show is giving us. That's how I see it. We do see glimpses of real people despite the edit, some we like better than others but to me they are all real people, and I still maintain that Brad is lucky because his final 4 girls all seem GREAT.
