Bachelorette Recap: Three’s a Crowd

1.  Chez moi last night.  Italiano (!)  So good.

And if you haven’t made these turkey meatballs yet, then you aren’t livin.  Gus is a good helper… look at that face!  Like no one’s ever fed or loved him a day in his life. #andtheoscargoestogus

2.  Just a little snack to warm it up… this knee-slapper came to me via my Fairy Godmother JB from Jersey.  I have not stopped howling for a week.  You know I love Bart – even in spite of his toddler Tonka Twuck fussy meltdown last week – but this is the truth:

3.  Another one from Megan on Twitter.  I DIE. BFdhjkhfjkahjhajkhahahhahaha.  Shiest – I get by with a little help from my friends.

4.  Also, I know I’m a real skank for making fun of these poor unfortunate souls every week.  So to level the playing field, here’s what my hair looks like in the morning.  Pretty sure Mufasa is my doppelgänger.  You’re welcome.  With any luck, potential suitors everywhere will be reading this post.

5.  Are Kaitlyn & Ben repping the J.Crew Kennybunkport collection ca 1997?  Hey – I’m not complaining.  I dig a good cable knit.  OMG is it Fall yet??

6.  Peter Brady in a DILF sweater in cold weather is like a sweet slice of apple pie on an Indian Summer day.  On a hay ride.  Like buttah.

7.  Ben H is (er, was until last week) 25?!!?  Lawd.  I’m not sure if his balls have dropped yet, but bless his heart – it looked like somebody took the eraser of a No. 2 pencil to the back of his head.  Cutest bald spot I’ve ever seen.  In other news, he’s a *really* good guy and always seems to say the right thing, but was it just me??  I didn’t see it between them.  They were adorable, great on paper, probably really liked each other cuz they’re both cool people but I dunno… something was missing, right?

Sidenote: DAYUM.  That girl can rock a red dress.

8.  Hands-down the best thing I’ve ever seen on this show.  I was also delighted to see him not acting like his head was inside a vice and about to explode.

Alf has never looked so good.  That’s just not a bad bod.

When she picked his clothes up and ran for the hills, I knew we were destined to be besties.

9.  Is he serious with those cap sleeves?  Honey, your clothes are all size XXXS.  We can already see your muscles (…and as Karrie so aptly pointed out a few weeks ago – we can also see your mushroom tip through your skinny jeans).

10.  How did I not know Nick had 98 siblings?

11.  Bella’s a little sweetie pie, but did the producers tell her Santa wasn’t real to make her cry so they could shoot it and pretend she was still distraught that Nick + Andi didn’t work out?  That part was straight bizarre.

12.  I found his Mom’s passive-aggressive dig at Andi was unnecessary… Yikes – hell hath no fury like a (family) scorned.  Speaking of his mom… I can’t decide what I liked better: her magical Birkenstocks or her ‘do.  I’m also pretty sure there’s a giant dreamcatcher hanging above her bed.

13.  The family hair game is uncanny.  Do you think she gave him a blowdryer for his 5th birthday and was like, “ok honey… now aim it at the back of your head like this and turn it on full blast“?

14.  Most endearing part of the show.  #bellaforpresident

IMG_3618 IMG_3620

15. I hate to be an a-hole but how come nobody told Shawn’s Pa that he had a bat in the cave?  That ain’t cool.  I tried to help… it didn’t work.

IMG_3632

In other news, can we talk about what a baller my dog is?  Have y’all met Gus the Tazmanian devil?

  • I tinkled a little with pride and a small tear as I read your shout-out. I’m thrilled to be your Fairy G-mother! I thought Megan’s observation was hilarious. Your play-by-plays are better than the show and you have outdone yourself this season. GusGus for President! Campaign strategy break-out sessions coming soon!
