Marquel for Bachelor

By now, 99% of you Bachelorette viewers know that Marquel was one of three guys sent home by that lunatic Andi on the most recent episode.

(Not my photo. Rights unclear.)

I crossed out the lunatic part but between Marquel and Eric, I have real questions about her judgment. Although maybe she and I should be friends: we would never fight over men. Continue reading

[Un]happy Monday

Why unhappy? There’s no Bachelorette airing tonight. Boo hoo. Some of my Twitter friends are surely rejoicing, TBH.

[In all seriousness, I'm eager to watch Diane Sawyer interview Hillary Clinton.]

One thing I won’t miss: Bachelorette Andi saying “STOP.” In case you haven’t noticed, Andi says this word a lot.

Last week’s episode with Eric’s departure was rough. It’s hard not to think “what if?” about his premature exit and later, untimely death.

In happier news, Bachelor in Paradise is in production and I’m excited to see more of a particular yet-to-be-announced cast member. More on that soon…

 

Warning: It’s Juan-uary

The Bachelor returns tonight. And said Bachelor is Juan Pablo Galavis. This guy:

Sexy right? Desiree didn’t get him. Or maybe it was that she couldn’t say his name and thus didn’t see a lasting romance as possible with him.

The return of Bridget Jones

Color me excited.

Each week for the Twitter Spotlight, I ask a participant for his or her favorite literary character. Some are highbrow. If I were being interviewed, my answer would almost certainly be Bridget Jones.

Working Title productions owns this image, not me

I love her as an imperfect heroine.

Do I dare to hope the new book will be good (or at least a guilty pleasure)?

The new book comes out October 15 – just one day before my birthday.

Hint, hint.

I bought it: MICHAEL Michael Kors Gideon Sandal

I needed a new pair of heels for an event.

Yes, I do know the difference between “need” and “want.” The event in question actually had “stiletto” in its title and the invitation made it clear I’d feel dumb if I wore wedges.

I bought these:

I was nervous because – hello! – ankles. But the straps of the sandals made me feel somewhat secure.

Guess what? These shoes are actually pretty comfortable. Like any shoes, my feet hurt after a few hours and my bum ankle is never pain-free. But in the grand scheme of things, I got just what I needed from the Gideon sandal.

I like ‘em enough to buy them in black.

Note: the toe box is narrow so I went up a half-size.

Ready For Love?

Will you be watching Ready For Love when it premieres Tuesday night?

Ready

I plan to watch–even though it means being subjected to Giuliana Rancic’s blather.

I’m hoping some of my Twitter friends who watch Bachelor and Bachelorette will do so too. These shows are more fun with company whether you watch for sincere I-love-love reasons or for snark.

One of my college roommates works on Ready For Love, but alas, has not given me any juicy details.

P.S. Is it just me or do two of the three guys look like brothers in the photo above?

Proof Kerry Washington can act

You know Kerry is my girl crush.

Before Scandal and Django Unchained (which I still haven’t seen), there was Save the Last Dance. Yep, Kerry was teen mom Chenille.
