Chris Soules Pregnancy Test Drama: Did New Bachelor Knock Someone Up in the Fantasy Suite?!

Last week, ABC released a promo for The Bachelor that played up the show’s unintentionally comedic aspects, while teasing a few The Bachelor spoilers.

Today, the network shared a teaser that focuses on the soap opera-caliber drama that’s made the cutthroat romantic competition series such an addictive reality TV staple over the years.

it’s an understatement to say there’s a lot going on in this trailer:

We get our first extended look at Chris Soules as The Bachelor; we learn producers have brought in more wannabe-fiancees than ever before…But the real surprise comes at the very end:

As the show’s signature, schlocky voice-over promises a season “pregnant with possibility,” the camera closes in on a discarded home pregnancy test…

The results screen has been blurred out, so it’s totally possible that one of the ladies simply experienced a false alarm, but the dramatic tease certainly has the Internet abuzz with speculation. 

The new promo has raised a number of questions about this upcoming season:

Would the show go on if one of the ladies got knocked up? Will the female fans who fell in love with Chris after he got dumped by Andi Dorfman feel the same way if he gets some rando pregnant? Doesn’t ABC stock that damn Fantasy Suite with condoms?!

Hopefully all these questions and more will be answered in the show’s 19th (!) season.

In the meantime, watch The Bachelor online to relive every sleazy the Fantasy Suite has to offer.

Chris Soules is The Bachelor 2015


Chris Soules is The Bachelor 2015. Here he is, leaving no doubts about it.

Taylor Swift never wants to be surrounded by ‘chic, jobless cling-ons’

swifty ASOS

Taylor Swift covers the new issue of ASOS. I have to hand it to Swifty, actually. I’ve just written up yet another Benedict Cumberbatch post and it struck me that Swifty has also been making the media rounds quite heavily in the past month, but she’s managed to space out her major interviews like a pro, something that some actors can’t even manage. Like, we can go days without writing about Swift and that gossip pause is useful. It makes her interviews more noteworthy, and we pay closer attention to her quotes. Anyway, here are some highlights from her ASOS interview:

She dresses for girls, not boys: “When I’m getting dressed, it’s always based on what my friends will think. They are my number one priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life.”

Her girlfriends: “My friends are the kind of people that have their own lives, and their own busy schedules, and that’s why we get along so well. A lot of ‘celebrities’ surround themselves with these very chic cling-ons who don’t really have much of a job or a passion, they follow around their celebrity BFF and provide constant affirmation for them and I’m really not interested in that kind of deal.”

She doesn’t follow style fads: “I think that as much as you should be creative and experiment, there are certain things I know are fads and so I try to steer clear of most of the obvious ones. I play the tape of my life forward and don’t wear the things that my kids or grandkids will make fun of me for wearing, [like] ‘Wow, cool, mom, cool cowboy boots that you were wearing constantly in 2006!’ For me, it’s important to be comfortable in what I’m wearing. Being comfortable means that no one’s going to be able to pull a fast one and take a picture of me that they’ll deem to be embarrassing. I don’t want to wear something so short that I’m scared there will be a wardrobe malfunction, or have a picture of me falling out of my shorts or skirt.”

Aiming for a no-drama life? “If my life had been turbulence free, no bumps in the road at all, maybe my music would be more beige, maybe the stadiums wouldn’t be so full and the mantle would be a little more empty. As much as I would really like to have saved myself heartache, embarrassment or gossip, I also know that my biggest mistakes have turned into my best lessons and sometimes my greatest career triumphs.”

[From People]

Even though I know this is just a silly transition phase for Swifty, I can’t help but feel sorry for her a little bit. She’s currently building a life around the idea that if she insulates herself enough and she stays home and never makes a mistake, then she’ll never be criticized. Like “not being criticized” is the goal now. I think she’s missing out on a lot of fun and yes, a lot of mistakes that she should be making in her early/mid-20s. These are the years when she should date weirdos and hipsters (and NOT high school boys) and figure out what she really wants. The goal shouldn’t be “not being criticized,” the goal should be “owning her mistakes and not caring if she’s criticized.”

Also – remember, several years ago, when there were a lot of rumors that Taylor was going to be cast in a potential Joni Mitchell/Carole King/Carly Simon bio-pic? Taylor was going to be Joni. Well, The Real Joni just told The Sunday Times that she “squelched” Taylor’s casting. Joni said: “I squelched that! I said to the producer, ‘All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones’. It’s just a lot of gossip, you don’t have the great scenes.” Thank God.

Bette Midler to Ariana Grande: Stop Being a Whore!

Last week, Ariana Grande released the video for “Love Me Harder,” and the Internet responded with a collective “ick.”

Sure, Ariana looks good, and at 21, she’s free to express herself however she sees fit. 

But the fact remains that between her high-pitched voice, her fondness for furry cat ears, and the fact that she looks like the digits in her age should be reversed, there’s something uncomfortable about the sight of Ari getting intimate with various pieces of furniture.

Fortunately, Bette Midler never shies away from speaking truth to divas. 

  • Ariana Grande Flips Her Hair
  • Bette Midler at the Oscars

“It’s terrible!” Midler said when asked about the video in a recent interview. “It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, slithering around on a couch, looking so ridiculous.”

“Sex sells. Sex has always sold, [but] you don’t have to make a whore of yourself to get ahead…I don’t know where you’re gonna go from all that sex in your twenties. I don’t know how you sustain it.”

This isn’t the first time that Ariana’s overt sexuality has drawn criticism from other celebs. Back in September, Mayim Bialik complained about Grande’s skimpy attire in a lengthy blog post.

Of course, it’s also not the first time that Ms. Midler has offered up some harsh harsh words for a new generation of starlets.

Bette called Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan “sluts” way back in 2006 and she’s been tossing in her two cents ever since.

Does she sometimes go too far? Sure, but considering most of the women she’s talking about spend their days being told how great they are, a little bit of overstatement might be necessary when expressing an opposing view. 

Hot Ariana Grande


Ariana Grande is such a young hottie. Just don’t believe those nude pics floating around. Not really her.

Taylor Swift in green Michael Kors at the AMAs: cute or overrated?

wenn21956256

It’s gotten to the point where I actually enjoy all of the cutaways to Taylor Swift in the audience during any given music awards show. Swifty is always seated front and center, usually surrounded by notable celebrity friends, and Swifty actually “performs” as Greek chorus for much of the night. At last night’s AMAs, Swifty was dancing, singing along, and at one point crying (at the Selena Gomez performance). Swifty was there with her BFF Karlie Kloss, but at various times, Selena, Lorde and others were invited in the little Swifty group. No boys allowed!

Swifty didn’t walk the AMA red carpet, probably because she did “Blank Space” as the first performance of the night. As soon as her performance was done, she changed into this green Michael Kors gown, which… eh. I like her in green. I think this would have been more interesting as a column dress rather than with the netting at the midsection.

Here’s the video of her performance – is it just me or was the sound quality really crappy for most of the performances? And I didn’t think this was the strongest performance for the start of the show.

Personally, I thought Lorde gave one of the best performances of the night – she performed “Yellow Flicker Beat.” Here you go:

Taylor Swift, One Direction & Iggy Azalea 2014 American Music Awards Complete Winners List

2014 American Music Awards - Press RoomWith celebrity awards shows, so much attention is paid to the red carpet that it’s almost easy to forget that people actually win awards- LOL. Iggy Azalea won two big awards (Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album as well as Favorite Artist Rap/Hip-Hop) at the 2014 American Music Awards and gave a great acceptance speech, thanking rapper T.I. as well as name-checking Eminem, who threw some shade at her last week in the lyrics to a rap.

It means so much that I can stand here against Eminem and Drake and come out with this.”

Taylor Swift Hitting The Shops In LA

Taylor Swift Has A Busy Day In West Hollywood‘1989’ singer Taylor Swift is making the most of her time on the west coast. Here she is heading to Fred Segal to do some shopping. Taylor seems to be spending most of her time on the east coast lately, but she’s in town for the American Music Awards, which are tomorrow night. RELATED: So why did Taylor Swift give up on men?

Wonder if she had to pick up something for the awards show? I’m guessing her entire outfit is already taken care of. Perhaps she’s getting a jump on holiday shopping, in which case I envy her planning skills.

Taylor is performing at the AMAs. She’s set to sing her new song ‘Blank Spaces.’ I’m sure she’ll take home an award or two. Her transition to being a pop star is complete, I say.

Taylor Swift gets irritated by ‘bitter’ celebrities complaining about their lives

swifty lucky

I barely recognized Taylor Swift without her signature red lips. Even when she doesn’t do fire-engine red lipstick, she usually goes for darker, bolder lips, so she really does look different in this Lucky Magazine photoshoot. Washed out… but not bad. Anyway, Taylor is still promoting her new album and that apparently involves A) hats and B) incessant talk about how happy she is to be single. I believe she’s happy (-ish) to be single right now, but I think this is just a phase where she talks about boys by talking about the lack of boys in her life. Some highlights from the Lucky piece:

No more fairytale romances: “Wow, I really used to think that happily ever after was a thing. Not in those simple terms…I think that no matter what you find in terms of happiness and compatibility, there’s always going to be a struggle attached to it. I used to believe that you find the one and that’s it: Nothing’s difficult after that. But then again, I know nothing now. I know legitimately nothing about lasting relationship experiences because I don’t have them.”

She’s obsessed with coffee: “Coffee’s a big part of my life. Skinny caramel lattes are a daily thing that I get excited about and I never stop being excited about. So if I could just find one person who I felt that way about—the way I feel about coffee—then I think I’d be in a content relationship.”

Her girlfriends: “A lot of my life has to be protected, just because of the circumstances I’m under. But with my friends there’s absolutely nothing held back. Every detail of every story is told. There’s no editing.”

Fame and privacy: “I wanted to make music. I didn’t know that came with this expectation that your whole life is owned by the general public and everything you do is dissected, scrutinized and questioned. Because [people with] a sunny outlook are a lot easier to deal with, be around, befriend and handle than people who are bitter about it. People who are, like, complaining about the life of being a celebrity. It’s a little irritating.”

The mystery surrounding her belly button: “I don’t like showing my belly button. When you start showing your belly button then you’re really committing to the midriff thing. I only partially commit to the midriff thing—you’re only seeing lower rib cage. I don’t want people to know if I have one or not. I want that to be a mystery. As far as anyone knows based on my public appearances, they haven’t seen evidence of a belly button. It could be pierced. They have no idea. If I’m going to get some sort of massive tattoo, it’s going to be right next to my belly button because no one’s ever going to see that.”

[From E! News and Lucky]

On the face of it, I see nothing wrong with anything she’s saying now. Swifty is in-process at the moment. She’s still figuring out her life, maturing into womanhood and the whole process is amplified because she’s such a celebrity and because she’s largely working out her life drama in public, in interviews. I’ll kind of admit it – I find this part of Swifty charming. I’m reminded of her youth and how she’s reached that weird moment in her 20s when she realizes that she was full of sh-t and didn’t know anything just five years previous.

Also – Swifty is going to perform “Blank Space” tonight at the AMAs. She’s also receiving The Dick Clark Award for Excellence. Diana Ross will present the award to her!!! That’s crazy to me. But I’m looking forward to seeing what Swifty wears.

Brandi Glanville: Trying to Find a Boyfriend, Going Too Far With Botox, Source Claims

Brandi Glanville doesn’t do anything halfway, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that when she’s on the market, she attacks the singles scene like the hungry cougar that she is.

Until recently, Brandi was dating some 23-year-old and creepily compared the relationship to “having a third child.”

Not surprisingly, the dude dumped Brandi (probably after she licked her thumb to wipe some schmutz off his face), and she’s once again single and desperate to mingle.

Brandi Glanville: Botox Gone Wrong?

But if you think Ms. Glanville is going after guys her own age, then you don’t know Brandi. This woman is allergic to men over 40…but that’s not the reason her face is all puffed up:

Sources say Brandi has been going overboard with her Botox treatments lately, and she’s not pleased with the results.

“Brandi is embarrassed by how it turned out,” says one insider. “She’s trying to find a boyfriend and wants to look young, but she knows she went too far.”

And how is Brandi coping with the humiliation of a disfigurement that’s unnoticeable to anyone besides herself? By guzzling booze, of course!

“Brandi’s girlfriends took her out to cheer her up,” says the source. “Nothing like a drunken night off for Brandi to shake it off!”

Ugh, she probably sang the Taylor Swift song too. Homegirl is 42 going on 14.

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online to see Brandi desperately cling to her youth.

Brandi Glanville


Brandi’s back, and boozy as ever. Spoiler alert: At some point this season, she smacks Lisa Vanderpump. You’d HAVE to be drunk to assault such a classy lady!

Iggy Azalea-Eminem Feud Heats Up Following "Old Man" Diss on Twitter!

Iggy Azalea is no stranger to feuds.

The Iggy-Snoop Dogg beef made headlines last month, with the Aussie raptress eventually “winning” by forcing an apology from the Doggfather.

Prior to that, Iggy feuded with Nicki Minaj, and while the First Ladies of Hip Hop have occasionally shown love to one another in public, sources say that situation is unlikely to ever be resolved.

Considering how man beefs she’s been involved with, you may think that Iggy intentionally seeks out drama, when in reality, she seems to simply be a favorite target for A-list emcees.

  • It's Iggy Azalea!
  • Eminem Pic

Her latest public throwdown is no different, as Iggy finds herself in the position of responding to some shocking comments from a hip hop icon:

Eminem seems to be using controversy to promote his new mixtape, Shady XV. Last week, Em rapped about punching Lana Del Rey during a freestyle, and this week he’s set his sights on Iggy-Ig.

A recently released track on Shady XV contains the following lyrics:

“So what’s it gonna be? / Put that sh-t away, Iggy / You gonna blow a rape whistle on me?”

Eminem’s supporters have pointed out that he’s made a career out of targeting potentially offensive threats and insults toward other artists through his Slim Shady persona.

Many feel, however, that this time Em has simply gone too far, and his critics have pointed out that the sort of lyrics that may have gone unnoticed in 1999 are simply not acceptable in 2014 – particularly now that Mr. Mathers is 42 and has a daughter in college.

Iggy brought up the topic of Em’s age (and the fact that he remains an influential Rap God to many young men) when she responded to his controversial verse on Twitter:

“I’m bored of old men threatening young women as entertainment trend,” Iggy tweeted. “It’s especially awkward because my 14 year old brother is the biggest Eminem fan and now the artist he admired says he wants to rape me. Nice!”

Of course, the grand hip hop tradition requires that artists settle their differences in song form, and the fact that I-G-G-Y has never written a response track (despite her many feuds) is seen by many as further evidence that Iggy doesn’t write her own rhymes.

But that’s a conversation for another time…

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift


Taylor Swift wrote a song titled “Bad Blood” about an enemy in the music business. We’re pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.
