Corinne's Instagram Raises A Ton Of Questions

If you've been watching The Bachelor even a little bit — or hell, even talking to someone who watches The Bachelor — you're probably familiar with Corinne Olympios, this season's most controversial contestant. She's been all over the place on the series, earning at times my confusion, my irritation, and my respect. And at this point, I can't really tell where I stand with her. So I took to her social media to get some answers, but instead, all I got was a series of questions I now have about Cor…

Who Exactly Are The Last Jedi In 'Star Wars'?

Every time I think that I've wrung every last ounce of meaning out of the very few Star Wars details that have trickled out, something happens that reveals there's still a little bit of juice left to squeeze out. And what I want to talk to you about today — who are the Jedi referred to in the title The Last Jedi? My predictions are Luke Skywalker and Rey, and before you try to correct my sentence construction, for using "are" instead of "is," or throwing out two names instead of one, let me dire…

Apparently, The 'SATC' Hookups All Happened IRL

When it comes to journalistic integrity, an HBO series about four women exploring their city and their sexuality might not immediately leap to mind. But it turns out that the Sex and the City sex stories were all real, so you may need to adjust your thinking just a smidge. As I'm sure we all recall, Sex and the City the TV show was modeled off of writer Candace Bushnell's column for the New York Observer, which detailed her dating (mis)adventures and sexual exploits. But, don't worry, every sing…

Hillary Clinton & Kate McKinnon Met For Dinner

Hey, can you text me really quick? I feel like my phone is probably broken, because Hillary Clinton and Kate McKinnon met for dinner, and I never got my invite, which is weird, right? According to Page Six, the politician and the woman who so hilariously portrays her on Saturday Night Live met for dinner at Orso, in New York City's Theater District, before Clinton went on to the Broadway show Sunset Boulevard. It's an itinerary that I weirdly would have also enjoyed. I like rustic-yet-inspired I…

Taylor Has A Reason To Return To 'The Bachelor'

Watching The Bachelor is always an emotional roller coaster, but this season in particular has been all over the place. Episodes have been starting with Rose Ceremonies, if they happen at all, and now it's starting to seem like women are absorbing that spirit too. For example, does Taylor come back during The Bachelor hometowns? The preview for the Feb. 20 episode showed a long-haired brunette knocking on Nick's hotel room door, and the voiceover revealed that, whoever the mystery knocker is, sh…

Could Danielle L. Be Returning To 'The Bachelor'?

This season on The Bachelor, Nick Viall has completely abandoned much of the show's traditional structure, so does that mean all the rules are out the window? Does Danielle Lombard come back during Bachelor hometowns? The preview for the Feb. 20 episode promises a shocking return and shows a clip of a dark-haired woman knocking on Nick's door, so it has people wondering. There aren't that many women that shade of brunette who have left the show recently and could conceivably come back, and Danie…

Why Corinne Needs To Be On 'Bachelor In Paradise'

You might think that this is jumping the gun a little bit, but it's time to talk about something important — will Corinne Olympios be on Bachelor in Paradise? The controversial, nanny-having, villain-edit-receiving individual may still be in the running to win Nick Viall's heart on The Bachelor, which is currently airing, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about her future after the show. After all, ABC spilled the beans on Rachel Lindsay being the next Bachelorette before she was even eliminat…

'The Bachelor's Shark Girl & Olivia Officially Met

I hope what you're doing at this moment isn't terribly important, because I'm gonna need you to stop doing it. Something much bigger has happened and it must be tended to: The Bachelor's Alexis Waters and Olivia Caridi met, and I need them to start being best friends immediately. Both women are alums of the franchise, but each comes from a different season — Alexis is from the current season with Nick Viall, where you might know her as She Who Wore A Shark Costume Out Of The Limo And Insisted Al…

A Princess Diana Documentary Is In The Works

It was announced Monday that a Princess Diana miniseries is in the works, so that might the next topic to be unearthed and reexamined from every angle. First it was O.J.

The project will be four hours in total, airing over two nights, and is a collaboration between ABC and People combining modern day interviews with people who were close with the late Princess of Wales, statement…
