OMG - I don't ever say this I usually find it annoying but it seemed fitting with all the drama that has been going down lately!

I know I know it has been a long time so I am once again going to play catch up:


Did anyone else watch the meltdown of an interview last night?!?!?!? I must admit I was never a Jake or Vienna fan. I hated when they announced Jake to be the next Bachelor because I thought he was too “perfect” – Maybe it is just me but I am not into guys who always look perfect with their shirt tucked in just so! Anyways when the show started I found myself routing for the girls I liked to win his heart and in the end he picked Vienna who I truly disliked from the start. All that being said I am not an unbiased party I had my opinions before sitting down to watch this interview and boy was I taken back by it. I found myself routing for Vienna and feeling sorry for her. I know a lot of people out there are saying she just put on a good show but I disagree. After watching her on the Bachelor I don’t think she is that good of an actress and what I saw in the interview with Chris Harrison was true emotion. Ok so she interrupted him a lot (seriously who cares). Chris Harrison (aka ABC) obviously came in Team Jake and let him have two separate meetings with Chris alone therefore he had plenty of time to get all his emotions off his chest. I feel like Vienna wasn’t given the same treatment or respect that Jake was given. Vienna was questioned by Chris of her job (Jake wasn’t) and she was asked to apologize (Jake wasn’t). Jake showed his true colors and while my husband and I watched we couldn’t help but tell each other what a chauvinistic pig he seemed to be. I mean the two stories about the furniture and the GPS were so crazy – and he still backed up his reactions in both situations (at least have some remorse on how extremely rude you are). So what are your thoughts after watching the melt down last night??? Did your alliance change?

The Bachelorette:


Ok so I may be the only one but I really liked Frank since the Hollywood date (that’s right since week 2 he has been my favorite). I am not sure what it is about him that drew me in, I think it is that he seems normal and fun. I actually really like all the guys that Ali has left at this point and usually I have someone that I strongly dislike however that is not the case. That being said I am not a huge Ali fan but she has done a few things this season that show flecks of class. Anyways if you don’t like spoilers then you should stop reading now. Last week after the preview for “upcoming episodes” of the bachelorette I was so sad with all the drama that seemed to go down with Frank. Silly me still was clinging on to hope that Ali and Frank would get through whatever major drama it was. However I went to the web and began searching for spoilers… and found that Frank and Ali won’t be fixing their relationship. Apparently Frank will meet up with his ex-girlfriend during the home town visit and find that is where his heart is and we get to see some on TV (not sure what parts). Tear….. I liked Frank! So now I think I am routing for Chris.

So You Think You Can Dance:

Is anyone else really enjoying the new format of SYTYCD?!?!? I love love love seeing the All Stars perform each week (I need more DOMINIC)! NEWS FLASH: Allison hurt her ribs dancing and won’t be dancing this week Katee Sheen will step in to take her place (YAY I LOVE KATEE). Also I can’t help but wonder if this means we might get MERCY at this week’s elimination show. However I do find myself each week more excited to see the all-stars then the current contestants….My favorites right now are Ashley and Kent. I really dislike Billy Bell, I am not 100% sure why, I think it is because he kind of reminds me of Benji (I know they dance completely different genres but there is something). I know there are a lot of Benji lovers out there but I felt like Travis was robbed! Speaking of Travis was anyone else SO ANGRY with the judges a couple weeks ago when they totally tore apart Travis for his “Jazz” routine. I know it did look more contemporary but I felt they could have handle it off screen. I hope that Travis comes back bc I always really enjoy his routines. TEAM TRAVIS!!! I am not super attached to anyone at this point and I haven’t been obsessed with any dances yet…There were a couple contemporary routines I really liked. Here are the dances that stick out in my mind from this season:

Ashley and Ade - Contemporary top 9:

Alex and Twitch - Hip Hop top 9:

Lauren and Dominic - Hip Hop top 10:

Alex and Allison - Jazz top 11: (MY FAVORITE THIS SEASON)

Best ALL Star Performances: (buddy tv)

Ade - Contemporary with Melissa by Tyce Diorio "Cancer Dance"

Allison - Contemporary with Ivan - Tyce Diorio (not sure this one was better than the "Umbrella Dance" by Shane Sparks- see below)

Anya - Viennese Waltz with Danny but Hunter Johnson (I loved Anya's contemporary routine with Danny "Apologize")

Comfort - Hip Hop with Twitch by Dave Scott

Courtney-Jazz with Mark by Sonja "The Garden" (I also loved her contemporary routine with Gev and her Broadway routine with Gev)

Dominic - Hip Hop with Sabra by Shane Sparks (I am OBSESSED with this routine, but I liked a lot of his routines)

Kathryn - Contemporary with Jakob by Dwight and Desmond

Lauren - Contemporary with Neil by Mia Michaels (I hated this dance but I was never a Lauren fan)

Mark - Hip Hop with Chelsea by Tabitha and Napoleon "Bleeding Love" (I don't think I have to say anything about my love for this dance)

Neil - Jazz with Sabra by Mandy Moore "Boardroom"

Pasha - West Coast Swing with Sarah by Benji (I did love Pasha in his hip hop routine)

Twitch - Contemporary with Katee by Mia Michaels "Mercy" (Top 3 routines of all time)


The judges said that Alex and Twitch's Hip Hop was the best NappyTabs routine and maybe one of the best hip hop ever on SYTYCD, I STRONGLY disagree! My favorite NappyTabs and Hip Hop routines that were better than that dance:


1. Chelsea and Mark - Bleeding Love

2. Joshua and Katee - No Air

3. Phillip and Jeanine

Other Hip Hop:

1. Dominic and Sabra - Shane Sparks

2. Lauren and Dominic - see above link

3. Allison and Ivan - Umbrella Dance


I thought Alex did a great job with hip hop, especially it being so far out of his comfort zone - I thought he NAILED what he was given. Obviously Twitch did a great job as well, my critics are just for the judges saying it was the BEST NappyTab's routine or the BEST HIP HOP routine. I just prefer the emotional routines that draw me in...I think there are several routines that were clearly better over the years. But like I said mad props to Alex for a job well done!

Your Thoughts and Comments from SYTYCD?!?!?

OMG is right! i hated vienna from day one of jake's season and i feel terrible for her for the way she was portrayed. he's so sleezy because he pretends he's not. ugh. yes, i'm on vienna's side now!

I think saying "OMG" in an ironic way as you did is totally acceptable! I'm definitely anti-Vienna, and Jake is a complete dork. I think Vienna goes to show that just because a person is unlikable and a seriously flawed person, it doesn't mean they're always wrong. I think she's in the right in this situation. Still, I wouldn't invite her to my birthday party.
