  1. Dipping my toe into the shallow end of the pool (pun intended) for a minute... the biggest "Fashion Don't" of last night's episode, for me, had to be the pants Kelly wore at the beginning of her one-on-one. I can't believe no one stopped her and suggested she wear something else. I mean, I can believe it, but still, it was mean not to suggest (gently) that she wear something else. Ellen Degeneres had a standup routine years and years ago where she talked about how catty/underhanded some girls can be and one of the lines was when your friend asks how she looks, you suggest that wearing knee-high socks with clogs would be a good look. The fleeting look of panic that seemed to cross her face (or was I imagining it?) was priceless. She did the only sensible thing she could do: start kissing him.
  2. Since no topic had been created for last night's episode, I figured I'd create one. Via https://www.spoilertv.com/2020/01/criminal-minds-episode-1505-ghost-press.html
  3. I watched trying very hard not to be judgmental, but it's hard, so hard. I had two miscarriages -- including one the very first time I was able to get pregnant at age 37 after months and months of trying, taking my temperature everyday, using an ovulation monitor, etc., -- but I still don't understand feeling like life isn't worth living. You're right....that's a mental issue. I certainly would never tell people that I have three children -- with two of them in heaven -- but then again I was never in a competition to see if I could have more children than anyone else I know. Lauren apparently posted this on IG: “Many of yall don't know this, but a couple of months ago we found out we were expecting, however, soon after we miscarried. At first, we kind of wanted to just stay quiet about the news, but knew that since everyone is anticipating for us to announce that were having a baby, we felt like it was time that we told everyone that our first and only baby is in heaven. It is hard to hear when people asks us if we are expecting, when we only recently lost our baby. You can imagine it was devastating to the both of us. Our expectations of setting up a baby room, hearing the heart beat, feeling the baby's first kick in mommys tummy, holding our little one and getting to to see our precious baby were - Shattered. Gone. Right before our eyes. Even though our sweet child is no longer with us, it is such a comfort to know that one day we will get to see our baby in Heaven!" They apparently never even heard a heartbeat (makes me suspect she might have had a blighted ovum -- when the fertilized egg doesn't grow into an embryo). There's a reason why they say you should wait to announce you're expecting until you're safely through the first trimester. That's the problem with having the ability to use an early pregnancy detector at home....in the old days, many women might not have even been aware they were pregnant in the first place. And, I get it's their culture, but how rude of people to ask if they're expecting.
  4. Every time Adam popped up as Weird Al I was surprised how old he looked.
  5. I also liked the glued-back-together Jesus bobblehead with the wonky arm.
  6. Def Leppard is my favorite band, so I'd love this personally. Although is it TOO obvious? I can't remember the actual clues she gave -- so I realize I'm pretty much useless here -- but I remember thinking last night that the Butterfly could be Gwyneth Paltrow.
  7. Did anyone else think there was a little revisionist history going on with Whitney? When she asked if any of the women were going skiing, it seemed like she was asking in a, "Hey, I don't want to be the only one," way. Alyssa and Erin shut that down pretty quick with their, "Oh no, I have to stay home with the children." Then, in the interview part where she was sitting with Zach, she described it as if she, of course, wasn't going to go skiing because she had to stay home to watch her kids.
  8. Do you mean 2-3 months? I took the NJ and NY bars in July 1997 -- found out I passed NJ in September, I think, but didn't find out I passed NY until mid-to-late November. Back then (the stone age, ha!) some of my colleagues were up all night because it took forever for each page of the NY bar website to load showing the names of the people who had passed. When I moved to FL and took the bar here in February 2006, I can't remember how long it took to get results, but I think it wasn't that long....maybe by early April? I would agree that the chance of passing decreases each time a person takes it -- not because the test gets inherently harder in, but because some people just aren't cut out to pass that kind of test. Doesn't mean they're not intelligent. Some people just aren't good test takers. It's got to be heartbreaking though to pay for law school and invest all that energy in studying and then not to pass the bar exam. But, Shane seems like an ass, so it's hard to work up a lot of sympathy for him.
  9. I was rooting for Tommy all season (not a popular opinion here, I'll admit). Honestly, I don't want ANY of the four left to win. But, since one must, I guess my order of preference would be: 1. Nicole -- not that she deserves to win, but she's shown some flashes of insight and had to put up with a lot of crap along the way from Bella... 2. Holly -- totally does not deserve to win, but there would be some satisfaction in seeing her win and then hopefully turning around and dumping Jackson... 3. Jackson -- out of the four, he most deserves to win, but he's just so unlikable that I really don't want him to... 4. Cliff -- ugh; in the beginning I was kind of rooting for him, being the "old guy" and all, but not anymore... I'm having flashbacks to the final three of Andy, GinaMarie and Spencer of BB15, when there wasn't anyone to root for in the final three.
  10. https://www.intouchweekly.com/posts/austin-forsyth-and-john-david-duggar-fly-to-bahamas-for-hurricane-aid/ Nathan and four of the Duggars (Jana, John David, Jason and James), as well as Joy-Anna's husband Austin, are also on the trip.
  11. Wandered over here to see if anyone had posted info on whether Shane had passed the bar. I actually hope the "need to be away to study for the bar" was contrived for the show because, if not, then I think he's kind of an idiot. It's really not THAT hard to pass the bar exam if you do a fairly thorough review/preparation (which definitely does not require someone to move out of their house, much less refuse to talk to their family on the phone...good grief!). With all the different ways to study for it these days (in person and online classes, software, books, etc.), it's pretty easy to take a practice test beforehand to determine whether you're generally ready or not and to identify where you should focus in your preparation. If he's not able to pass after all that, perhaps it's a big giant sign from the universe that he's not really meant to be an attorney....at least not one in CA, it would seem. I suspect (1) he jumped at the chance to move out for a bit....either because of marital difficulties or he just selfishly wanted to be in a nice hotel without having to help out at home and deal with the kids, and/or (2) after the negative reactions to him on the show last year, this was the explanation they crafted for why he wouldn't be around while Bravo was filming. Plus, if he was just quietly going about his business squeezing in study time where/when he could without advertising "Look at me! I'm spending weeks away from my family to study for the bar exam!!!", there wouldn't be any focus now on whether he passed. He just set himself up for embarrassment by making such a big deal about it on the show. These two really seem mismatched -- I don't get it.
  12. Here is how the roses were distributed: Demi --> Kristian Dylan --> Hannah Clay --> Nicole Mike --> Sydney Dean --> Caelynn Blake --> Kristina Derek --> Tayshia John Paul Jones --> Haley Chris --> Katie Which meant Caitlin, Jen and Tahzjuan went home.
  13. I'll probably watch, but I'm on the fence. I have ZERO interest in watching Sean Spicer trying to redeem himself.
  14. I don't think it necessarily makes her a player either. Although, maybe I missed something (entirely possible, I often multi-task while watching), but I didn't get the impression that she had made it crystal clear to Dylan that she was so confused. To me, it seemed like she didn't really care about Dylan's feelings when making out on the beach with Blake right in front of him...rubbing it in his face almost. If I was Dylan, I would gather up my pride and say, "Message received....you're not really interested." (Same thing holds true for Blake when she's lounging around all day with Dylan hanging all over her.) Call me old-fashioned (really, I don't mind), but just because you're confused and feeling pressure doesn't mean you can't take steps to actively avoid hurting people who clearly care for you while you figure things out by not making out with multiple people on the same day. The more catty side of me kind of hopes they both give up on her and pursue other people, leaving her with no one, although I realize that's not going to happen.
  15. Perhaps, subconsciously, you picked Prudence because that was the name of the character Kim Richards played on "Nanny and the Professor" (1970-1971) when she was around 5 or 6 years old. Or, maybe not, if you're not as old as me (and Kim R.). 😊 Fun fact: in Googling Kim R. and NATP just now, I discovered that Kim's middle name is Erica. Speaking of which... I'm wondering if Erika was realizing at that point that the "everyone vs. Lisa V" scenario was not a good look and that it might have backfired on them.
