Two Sundays ago, there was a marathon of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. The final episode showed what was the beginning of the end for Kim and Kris Humphries. Now when they announced that their 72-day marriage was over, I, like many others, wasn't exactly surprised. But I also wasn't sold on the idea that the entire relationship was a scam - some sort of concocted charade from the pits of reality-show hell.
After watching last Sunday's episode, though, now I'm not so sure. It seems there were many things that they neither discussed nor knew about each other before they got hitched. Some of these things you'd think people would certainly talk about if they were dating with the intention of getting married. Like, 'Honey, where should we live and raise children?' She even disclosed in the show, that she was finding out things about him that she didn't know before. And, of course, the defining moment came when she realised how happy and relieved she was away from him when she took a trip with her mom to Dubai.
On another note, how can she stop talking to Khloe just because she woke her up to say goodbye when she was leaving with Kourtney for the Hamptons? Come on Miss Diva Kim. Get over yourself. Just go back to sleep. What's the big deal?
But let's get to the juicy stuff, The Bachelor. After eliminating seven women in the first week, poor Ben now has 18 love-struck women fighting for his affection. He took them (or rather ABC took them) to his hometown of Sonoma where he had his first one-on-one date with Kacie B, who is a real Southern belle. I like her. She seems very real. What didn't seem real was the town. Did they shut it down to film the scenes? They were walking on the streets and there was no one around. Weird.
I found it strange when he said he gave the show a second chance because it worked for him once. Oh, I'm sorry, was he really in the show we all watched? Dude, it didn't work for you, she chose another guy! Perhaps a few more sessions with your therapist are in order. Don't go into denial!
Now Blakeley is on the show for one thing and one thing only, for Ben to ask her to marry him. So when she turned up for the group date with her boobs hanging out everyone started hating her. Unfortunately, she didn't know children would be present, so right now I'm sure a few of them are in therapy. That aside, she gets on everyone's nerves, including mine. She already got a rose on the group date, so she was safe. However, she kept hounding him and butting in when the other girls were trying to get some alone time with him. And then she goes into the luggage room crying her eyes out and here he comes again.
We know he has it in for Courtney as according to him, "she's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen". But besides him thinking she's beautiful, I don't think they hit it off quite as well as he did with Kacie B.
Crying Jenna is gone. I guess that even though she retreated beneath the covers in tears this week, the producers decided the others created enough drama, and in the end she didn't get a rose. And, man oh man, how the waterworks came on.
As usual, they have carefully and calculatively cut and pasted the scenes for tonight. Who will turn out to be the real bitch in the house? Maybe everyone. Share your thoughts on tonight's episode.
