Can we please take a moment and thank the Bachelor Gods that Jenny Mollen is the co-host of Bachelor in Paradise. It was SO refreshing to see someone call Samantha out on her BS. I’m glad Samantha is scared of Jenny. She should be. Jenny is REAL and going to tell it like it is.
nd I will say I am pretty shocked that Jenny was asked to leave? I’m surprised she agreed to leave. Thankfully she came back and was able to call Samantha out on all her BS. And let’s not forget about Chris Harrison. He will put a gal in her place when she’s need it. Like when he brought out the book of texts. Did Joe REALLY send him that book? I really hope that was a joke because if Joe took the time to make that book then he really is crazy. No really. That’s NUTS! Let’s just hope Harrison was joking and Joe just emailed the text screen shots. Which is still a little weird.
One more thing about After Paradise. Sam kept saying “I was never told the extent of the situation or I would have never had a relationship with him” WHAT?!?! You do realize that Juelia tried to tell you and you didn’t want to listen. You can’t use that as an excuse Samantha! Do I hate Samantha? No, of course not. I’m sure she regrets her decisions on the show and I’m sure she’s a decent person. But what I would have really loved to have seen from her was complete ownership of all the things she did wrong and no excuses. I wish she just came out and said “Ya know what. I messed up. And I’m really sorry” But she didn’t. She kept trying to make excuses and explain herself when she has to know she was in the wrong. I wish her all the best regardless.
One of the things that bothered me when watching Bachelor in Paradise was Nick Peterson going on a date with Chelsie and saying that he wanted to be talking to Sam. So while I was doing a Periscope session, Nick actually joined and commented that I was reading him wrong (You can watch the whole thing HERE). So I reached out to him and this is what he said
“I didn’t feel any connection with Ashley, so I was open to meeting new girls! That’s what the show is for! Yes I came for Samantha, but she turned me down on my date, so I wanted to explore other options!”
He continued by saying…
“I was open to seeing other people so of course I accepted the date from Chelsie. We didn’t click at all and it was completely friendly. At that point, it was mutual. So I told her that I had gone to Paradise to meet Sam originally.”
Ok, so after talking to him I totally get it. But I was upset with him at first because he was on the date with Chelsie and audio was playing saying he wanted to be talking to Sam. I guess that just goes to show you the power of editing. So, I take back be upset with Nick 🙂
Now for some of my favorite outfits. I LOVE Ashley I’s blue maxi dress from Sunday night. It looked super hot on her so I emailed her and asked her where she got it. Guess what? It’s Forever 21 and under $25! Score. It doesn’t nearly look as cute on the model as it does on Ashley. Ashley must have use a belt to pull in her waist which was so smart and flattering. For less than $25 dollars, I had to get it.
Jacklyn’s romper is the cutest thing ever. I love her style so I am really glad she is on the show – even for a short time (I can’t believe it’s over next week!). Her romper is by a brand called The Jetset Diaries and their stuff is so cute! It comes in the stripe version (the one Jacklyn’s wearing), but it also comes in a red version and a white version (Perfect for new brides to pack on their honeymoon!)
Now we need to discuss After Paradise. What did you guys think? Do you think Sam owned up to her wrongs? Is Jenny Mollen your hero? Let’s hash all this out in the comments below!
