'Bachelorette' 'stars' Ali Fedotowsky, Emily Maynard, and Ashley Hebert, together at last -- POLL

I wasn’t exactly dying to know why Bachelorettes Ali, Emily, and Ashley were hanging out together — and then I died a little inside when I accidentally learned they’d just enjoyed a “day of beauty and pampering.” I need to stop reading the words on the pages. It’s always a mistake.

Big poll coming up. Huge. “I have to go shopping now….” Vote below. READ FULL STORY

Emily Maynard named next Bachelorette: Brilliant or bored now?

Emily Maynard, the sweet, Southern single mom who Brad Womack proposed to his second time around on The Bachelor, will be the next Bachelorette, a source confirms to EW. ABC had no comment. People, which broke the news, says production on the show will reportedly move to Charlotte, N.C., so Maynard doesn’t have to be away from her daughter Ricki. Ricki’s father, Ricky Hendrick, was killed in a plane crash in 2004, right before the then 18-year-old Maynard learned she was pregnant.

Best of 2011 (or is that Worst?): The year in reality TV meltdowns

No reality TV show can really call itself worthy of the name without at least one tear-streaked, red-faced, expletive-laden meltdown — the more out of left field, the better. And 2011 was chockablock with them, from Snooki on Jersey Shore to Taylor Armstrong on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, from Meat Loaf on Celebrity Apprentice to Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Dancing With the Stars. Let us count the ways:  READ FULL STORY

Ben Flajnik is the new Bachelor: Mixed feelings?

Ben Flajnik, the 28-year-old winemaker whose marriage proposal Ashley Hebert rejected on the season finale of The Bachelorette, will be named the franchise’s next Bachelor, EW’s sources confirm. If producers had to hire from within, I do believe he’s the best option (especially after Ames Brown dared to do Bachelor Pad). Ben took the show seriously enough to get upset when he was rejected after being led on, but not so seriously that he pretended it would scar him for life. He cried on-camera while discussing his late father, apologized to his mother for not having been there more for her, and thanked Ashley for opening him back up after that great loss and actually meant it. Plus, we already get copious amounts of wine on the show, but with his romantic profession giving producers a legitimate reason to have bottles uncorked, it’s going to be Cougar Town! (Seriously, one group date should be to the set of Cougar Town, where Ben and select ladies are extras for a scene.) READ FULL STORY

Ashley and J.P. to doubters: 'We're gonna prove them wrong.'

Bachelorette Ashley Hebert and her chosen one, J.P. Rosenbaum, visited Good Morning America earlier today to confirm that they will never be able to sit more than an inch apart ever again for fear that someone will think their relationship won’t last. Watch the interview below. J.P. says Ashley is going to finish school at Penn, move to New York, find a place to live with him, get a job, and, once they’re settled, they’ll talk about having a wedding as early as fall 2012.

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' season finale


Spanning two days and five hours of television, this is the biggest, most dramatic blog ever. I hope you enjoyed the way ABC programmed the Men Tell All on Sunday and rolled right into Monday’s dramatic season finale, which led us right into After the Final Rose. The Men Tell All special was a fun show to host. This is a very good group of guys that I enjoyed hanging around with this season so there really weren’t a lot of fireworks. I was very disappointed Bentley didn’t show up for the taping. As I mentioned we extended an invitation to him but he opted not to come. I would very much like to sit down and interview him. I have a standing invitation out to him that I will interview him anywhere and anytime he wants. As anybody that’s ever been on this show will tell you, I will give him a very fair interview. I’m really not looking to bury the guy. What’s done is done! I just want to find out his motivation and what he thinks about his actions now and how they’ve affected his life. Does he regret what he did and would he like to apologize to anybody? I found it very interesting to see the guys’ reactions to Bentley, as they didn’t really see or hear anything just like Ashley while he was actually on the show. They found out like everybody else while they watched it unfold week after week on TV. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette' season finale: Depressed about it? Cheer up with this clip of Harrison wearing the mask!

Well rose lovers, I think we all saw that coming, didn’t we? If you’ve seen tonight’s finale — and for the love of God, SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t — post your thoughts about Ashley’s Mr. For the Next Six Months Right below. Stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight. (UPDATE: The Bachelorette finale recap is live!) In the meantime, no matter how you feel about the ending to Ashley’s “journey,” do yourself a favor and click on the clip below — it’s an exclusive “alternate opening” to the new season of Bachelor Pad, which premieres next Monday with a three-hour hootenanny. Too bad ABC decided not to use it — I think if anyone can make the masked man look work, it’s Chris Harrison. (P.S. Don’t miss his behind-the scenes Bachelorette finale blog).

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' episode 9


“The sun always shines in Fiji!”  Those were the words spoken by Ashley as she stepped out of the plane in Savusavu, Fiji. She must have forgotten this is the rainiest season we’ve ever had on this show. More on the rain and our production a little later in this broadcast. This show and my blog have become a bit of a travel guide over the years, and I especially feel compelled during the exotic dates to talk a little bit about where we are in the world. This week we are in Namale in Savusavu, Fiji, a small town in one of many Islands that make up Fiji. The high definition video we show you makes it quite evident this is one of the most stunning places in the world. What we didn’t show much of was the Namale resort, which is actually owned by inspirational speaker Tony Robbins. Tony is a great guy and turns out he was in town our final day at the resort and he came down and joined my wife and me at breakfast. Holy cow! That guy has the biggest hands I have ever seen! I can’t say enough about the people of Fiji and in particular the people at Namale.

As for the show you saw the return of Ryan. Oddly enough, I got a call at home one night (no the cast usually doesn’t have my number) and it’s Ryan. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette' episode 9: 'Houses and women are not the same'

Oh, the things you learn while recapping a reality TV dating show! (See: the astute observation above.) If you’ve seen tonight’s episode — and SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t — you’ll know that something truly shocking happened: One of the bachelors said that he “respects” Ashley! And he makes a pretty mature decision as a result. Otherwise, tonight’s “fantasy suite” dates went just as you would expect them — candlelight, flower-petal-strewn hotel beds, and gentle cutaways once the action between Ashley and her suitor approached R-rated territory. Stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click for Kristen’s Bachelorette episode 9 recap and Chris Harrison’s exclusive Bachelorette blog) , but in the meantime, let me know what you thought of this week’s “exotic” dates. Were you surprised about who went home? Were you surprised about who came back? Were you surprised that Ashley talked about her bunion on national TV? Post your thoughts now!

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' episode 8


We have made it through the infamous hometown dates and now it’s time for the exotic dates. You know what that means… that’s right, the fantasy suite card! Before anybody decides if they will forgo their individual rooms, however, let’s discuss this week. Actually let’s go back to last week first. Many of you asked why Ben stayed overnight with Ashley on his date. The reason he stayed was not exactly romantic: Ashley, Ben, and the crew stayed the night because Taroko is several hours away by car and after a very long day and night we didn’t want to put anybody through that travel. Ben and Ashley did not share a room, nor were they given the option to spend the night together. For that to have happened I would’ve had to whip up a fresh batch of fantasy suite cards, and I was otherwise detained. Now back to this week’s episode. READ FULL STORY
