Did The Bachelor, Jason, Lead One of the Girls On??

megan1

The recently jilted, Megan Parris, called People to discuss what we didn’t see on the latest episode of The Bachelor and how she feels that she had been led on by Jason.

Wow. The show hasn’t even ended yet and the drama is already beginning.

According to Megan, her last conversation with Jason was left on the cutting room floor. She expressed to Jason that she was stressed out and wasn’t as secure as the others as far as her position in the house. Jason assured her that they had plenty of time to get to know each other and that he still wanted her there. That’s why she seemed confused upon her exit. Continue reading

DeAnna Pappas Interview – Part II

deannagm4

Last week I posted the first part of my interview with DeAnna Pappas, the former Bachelorette, and current co-host of Get Married.
The first part of the interview focused on DeAnna’s USO Tour to Iraq – the second part of the interview focuses on the personal side of DeAnna.

I asked DeAnna where she saw herself five years from now, both professionally and personally (I know the typical interview question):
DeAnna stated,

“Professionally all of my dreams have come true. ‘Get Married’ is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Personally, I still want to fall madly in love and be married. I still want kids, I still want to find that someone that completes me.”

As to the many articles that have been written about DeAnna “Going Hollywood”, there could be nothing further from the truth. DeAnna’s life is as “normal” as it gets in her hometown in Georgia. She does her own cooking, cleaning, laundry and food shopping and best of all, she still drives her Honda. This sounds like the same down to earth girl we all saw on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

DeAnna is very protective of her personal life and doesn’t like to discuss the reason her relationship with Jessie Csincsak did not work out. She is not willing to explain that to anyone and would like to keep it private.

I asked DeAnna if the rumors about her dating former reality star, Ace from the Real World, were true – she giggled before saying,

“We are good friends.  He is a great guy we met a few months back… a wonderful guy.  He owns the bar, Flip Flops.”

DeAnna is still in touch with a lot of the “guys” from the Bachelor and when asked about her relationship with Jason Mesnick, the #2 man on the Bachelorette and the current Bachelor, DeAnna stated:

“Jason is a very good friend, we have become the best of friends.”

As to the reason for  her return to The Bachelor, DeAnna was very coy and said,

“We will have to just wait and see.”

That is one episode of The Bachelor that I can not wait to see!!

 

 

The Bachelor – And Then There Were Five

There are nine remaining bachelorettes fighting to the very end for Jason’s heart.

The first date for the evening was a one-on-one date where they had to “sing for their supper”. They had to compose and perform a song for Jason. This sounds familiar – didn’t the Bachelors have to do the same thing for DeAnna Pappas, the Bachelorette?? Jason chose Molly for an intimate dinner date at the Bachelor pad. To everyone’s shock, she does not return from her date – instead she spent the night camping with Jason.

The first date for the evening is the group date. The group date is with Naomi, Shannon, Lauren, Melissa, Jillian and Megan on the set of General Hospital (my favorite soap opera). The bachelorettes get to act out their secret fantasies with Jason. Oh boy – Jason kissed all the women – and I mean kissed. Megan’s kiss was a bit much for the other women to handle – it looked like she was clawing at him. Of course – what would a group date be without the crying. As Jason said, “Everyone is An Emotional Mess”.
To summarize the group date – Naomi cried, Melissa cried, Shannon cried and begged for a rose and Lauren demanded a rose. Megan and Shannon both wanted a romantic kiss – to their disappointment -Jason gave them a friendly kiss. Naomi received the rose on the group date. Continue reading

An Interview With DeAnna Pappas

deannagm3

I had the opportunity to interview DeAnna Pappas, the former Bachelorette, and new co-host of Get Married.

What a pleasure it was to speak with her.  She is so down to earth and is the same girl that we all saw on the Bachelorette – easy to talk to, pleasant and alot of fun.

DeAnna is now the co-host of Get Married and writes for BloggerBrides, an internet site that is part of GetMarried.com. On Get Married, DeAnna is the ultimate bride’s best friend, offering brides the opportunity to share ideas, stories and experiences.  She also discusses the latest wedding planning tips and trends.

We also spoke about DeAnna’s trip to Kuwait and Iraq as part of a USO tour.  She shared a lot about the trip and what an enlighting experience it was for her and as she said,

“Iraq was one of the best things in my entire life. It was truly an eye opening experience.”

DeAnna, along with Rachel Smith (Miss USA 2007) and Christine Lakin (from Step by Step), visited 3 bases per day. They went to both the big and small bases. One of the smaller bases was in Sadr City – previously considered one of the most dangerous cities in Baghdad. Some of the soldiers had been on base for 15 months without ANY visitors. Deanna expressed her appreciation for the solidiers on Blogger Brides,

“The experience during the USO tour was very touching, especially seeing the courage and bravery of all the soldiers. You all are my heroes!”

The Bachelorette’s, Jesse Csincsak Reunites With….!!

Okay… don’t get excited – Jesse Csincsak got together with some of the other “bachelors” he met on the Bachelorette with Deanna Pappas. He also brought along the new girl in his life, Holly Durst. Holly was one of the bachelorettes on The Bachelor: London Calling with Matt Grant.

Jesse and Deanna broke up in November, Jesse then took to You Tube to speak about his heartbreak.

Jesse told People that he is not really focused on dating but that he does have a connection with Holly.

“I have a great time with Holly,” said Jesse “We’re both from Ohio, we both have a lot in common, and I think that we both really enjoy hanging out with each other.”

As for his weekend with the guys, Jesse said,

“It was awesome, man and it was cathartic. We all got to catch up, chit-chat about how things have been. It was cool, because we all had the same experience, and there’s nobody else out there that can understand what we went through except for the guys that were on the show. It was like we never left. I love those guys, no matter whatever we’re doing — be it drinking beer, playing cards, skiing, snowboarding.”

Jesse did say that the subject of Deanna did not come up. (On the other hand – I was lucky enough to speak to Deanna personally yesterday.  You can read it here on www.haveuheard.com)

Leave it to “men” – you have a life altering moment and don’t even discuss it with your friends.
