You know the longer I do this show you’d think the less things would surprise me. Not so much. This Men Tell All was easily one of the strangest I’ve ever hosted, but in a really entertaining way. It all started with Ashley and JP, two people I love very much. It wasn’t enough just to catch up with them and find out what’s going on with the pregnancy and their new life together, oh no, we had to raise the bar and do a live ultrasound. When I heard we were going to attempt to pull this off I was a little skeptical, but I loved this moment. As soon as we heard that heartbeat you could really see JP and Ashley’s emotions and feel their love. It was a beautiful thing and I couldn’t be happier that they’re having a boy. I love being able to keep up with our former couples, but to have a moment like this was really fun. Seeing JP get tears in his eyes as he talked about having a son was priceless.

Awww, Marquel—don’t feel bad, little buddy! You may have found yourself in the “Friend Zone” with Andi, but the “ladies” in the audience were truly digging your chocolate-chip cookie lapel pin tonight. (If you haven’t seen it, you’re in for a treat—pun intended.) As for the rest of tonight’s Men Tell All? Well, other than that disturbingly TMI segment with Ashley and JP, the “shocking” “revelations” were “few” and “far between.” Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click over for Kristen’s full Bachelorette: The Men Tell All recap), but here are a few of my (spoiler-free) highlights: Everyone attacking Andrew for his (alleged) remarks about Marquel and Ron; Andrew attacking JJ; Chris the farmer joining Andrew in his attack on JJ; a weird Canadian woman interrupting Harrison’s hot-seat interview with Chris; and the brilliant opening gag with the scarves. As for the Bachelor in Paradise teaser? I think it may have given me eye herpes. (That is to say, August 4 can’t get here fast enough.)
Nicole Richie is many things: a celebrity daughter (her dad’s singer Lionel Richie), a mother of two, a fashion designer, a socialite, a former reality TV star… and, now, the center of VH1′s Candidly Nicole, an apparently unscripted comedy based on Richie’s delightfully honest Twitter feed. At a dinner in West Hollywood Monday night, Richie celebrated the show’s upcoming premiere with friends, family, and other “online influencers,” proving that she’s just as unfiltered when the cameras are off.
A sample quip: “I was a little nervous about tonight,” Richie admitted while sitting down. “When you’re told you have to have a dinner with a group of bloggers, you expect a bunch of ugly people sitting behind computers all day. But you guys are cute!”
Anything you can do, Kacy Catanzaro can do better.
On this week’s episode of American Ninja Warrior, the show that pits some of the world’s best athletes against insane obstacle courses, gymnast Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman to complete the qualifying course. But she didn’t stop there. Catanzaro then became the first woman to complete the finals course, and she made it look easy.
The nearly 10-minute finals course included balancing obstacles, the salmon ladder—which Arrow fans knew a woman could complete—and the much-dreaded spider climb. But Catanzaro used her 5-foot frame to her advantage and landed herself a ticket to Las Vegas.
And then there were two. This season the final two weeks of our travels took us to the Dominican Republic. This week, the overnight dates were spent in and around the beautiful Paradisus hotel. I had visited the Dominican Republic many years ago and was looking forward to getting back to see how much had changed over the years. Andi came into this week with a clear head and incredibly happy with the three men she has narrowed it down to. Letting go of Marcus last week was difficult, but these three relationships are definitely different than the rest. As I told Andi after hometowns, it’s really an embarrassment of riches. I felt like she had done a terrific job of narrowing it down to a bunch of great guys. After hometowns her job wasn’t as much to find out if these guys were sincere but more so trying to decide which lifestyle fit best. Which man could she really see forever with?
Okay, sure, the man who made the above statement to Andi was not—I repeat, not—talking about something that went down in the Fantasy Suite… but I needed a catchy headline. After all, this week’s “exotic” dates were pretty darn tame, even though Andi made the most shocking decision… EVER by sending one of the men home before even handing him the coveted date card. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight, but if you’ve seen tonight’s episode and have thoughts (and I know you do) let me hear ‘em. Do you want the booted little-b bachelor to become the next capital-B Bachelor? Was the homemade, illustrated fairy tale book cute or creepy? And is eating dinner on the beach really all that romantic? If you ask me, sand and fine cuisine don’t mix. (Not that the folks on this show ever eat, but…)
Kanye West doesn’t have the best history with airports: He’s been arrested twice, once in 2008 and another time in 2013, for getting in altercations with photographers at LAX. But in a clip TMZ obtained from a failed 2010 reality pilot about West’s travel agent, the rapper claims he likes being in airports—he just has to have a few strategies for dealing with the people in them.
Game of Thrones is the latest fictional show to get the reality treatment — well, sort of. Tonight, Bravo premieres Game of Crowns, a reality show that sounds suspiciously like the HBO fantasy drama but is really about pageant ladies vying for the winning tiara. Which, you know, could get as dangerous as Game of Thrones.
This isn’t the first time a fictional show has spawned a similar-sounding reality show. MTV released Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County in 2004 after seeing how successful the fictional The O.C. was; Bravo did something similar when they launched The Real Housewives in 2006, two years after ABC drama Desperate Housewives premiered. But how similar are these reality shows to their fictional parents?
Every day, it seems Devin is getting crazier and crazier. For those who follow the live feeds, it may be more like every hour. Unfortunately as the HOH, he’s a crazy person with power. After his alliance almost fell apart because no one else wanted to vote off Brittany, Devin used his power of veto and replaced her, his own nominee with loud mouth Zach instead of following through on his promise to Pao after she “threw” the challenge last week to keep him in power and save her. Can’t wait for karma to start playing the game.

I will definitely get to that below, and I will fully explain how and why everything happened, but before that I do want to give a brief mention to each gentleman’s hometown as I think it was a very interesting group of hometown dates.
