The Bachelor Alums: Engaged, Preggers, and “Scaling Down”

September 24, 2008

Time for a mini Bachelor update! Remember when Jen Schefft was Better Single Than Sorry? Welp, now she’s Better Engaged Than Sorry (or something).  And she just met the guy in February! On a blind date, no less! “I guess it’s true things move fast when you meet the right person,” Jen tells People.

It’s no wonder she ran to People with her news, rather than Us Weekly. After all, Us gave her ex Andrew Firestone a cover story a few months ago wherein he yammered on about his “second chance at love” and how annoying it is when Jen texts him, etc. No surprise, then, that Us gets Andrew’s big news: He and his new wife Ivana are expecting a lil’ Bachelor (or Bachelorette).

And now to DeAnna and Jesse. I’m a little worried. They just announced to People that they’re scaling down their wedding. There’s certainly nothing wrong with a small wedding, but it seems the demise of Bachelor couples always begins with something like “scaling down.” Then it’s “We’re both so busy!” and then it’s “The wedding is postponed, but we’re still in love!” and then, before you know it, the ring is on eBay.

DeAnna told People: “We’re both so busy all the time. We don’t have time right now to plan a wedding, and we’re planning a wedding, which is crazy.” Gulp.

Oh and another thing: Why do all those creepy feet on Jen’s book cover have such odd, ugly shoes on? Hm.


The Bachelorette: Rad! It’s Jesse!

July 7, 2008

On last night’s three-hour (Lord!) wrap-up of The Bachelorette, DeAnna chose pro snowboarder Jesse Csincsak of Colorado (he of the pink shoelaces) to be her future husband and the father of her impending brood. I’m happy. (Sorry, that’s the best I can come up with at 2 a.m. after three hours of Chris Harrison’s yapping.) But Jeremy came back! Then, later, Jason came back! And “happy Bachelor couple” Matt Grant and Monkey! In the meantime, former Bachelor Andrew Firestone got married last weekend. Woah, we have a lot to discuss. The good news is that I’m unemployed so I can talk about this stuff all day, yo. In the meantime: What did you think of DeAnna’s decision?
