Natalie’s Bachelor Blog: Episode 10

Women Tell All: Real life Mean Girls

Normally I only poke fun at style and awkward moments. Not tonight. I’m so upset with how these girls treat not only each other, but Shawntel as well. I’m not defending Courtney, but I am irritated that so many of you out there are so blind to some of these ladies. Open your ears! They all say mean things about each other behind their backs and directly to their faces. Why does everyone slam Courtney when her comments were nowhere near half as rude as some of the things these ladies said on this episode?! They definitely showed more of Courtney’s digs on the others, but don’t sit there and be an idiot in denial that your favorite cast mate may also be a total snot. Normally at the Women Tell All, I see softer sides to the “villains” of the show, but this time it was quite the opposite. This time I saw even the sweetest of girls be complete brats. I am not going to be very nice in this blog.

REUNION: What happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas when you are being filmed, you big dummies.

I clearly look jealous as Ryan tells Krisily that her shoes are, “like, so rocking.” Fine, Krisily always has on ridiculous, fantastic heels, but he could have at least mentioned my style efforts. Ahem. For the record, I was wearing an American Apparel sheer tank over a Fred Segal decorative bra top and Fred Segal black sequined, high wasted shorts with nude pumps, and O2 designed jewelry mixed with a little Stella and Dot. So yeah, my face was a little irritated when water heater boy chose to be oblivious to my style efforts. GetzStyle Tip: When going out, think outside the box. Mix and match several pieces to create your own, personal look. It’s easy to find a dress that looks hot, but try to mix it up!

This is why I love Erica….”It was probably hard for Ali to see Frank considering he dumped her for a younger girl, and she wasn’t really looking her best.” Not to mention she looked super hot in her tiny black dress with the perfect amount of cleavage exposed to keep it classy yet sexy in Sin City.

Kasey and Lisa P. making out reminds me of two drunk horn dogs in Vegas. Wait a second… had only Jamie from Ben’s season been there to give them some pointers and a play-by-play of the rules of tonguing each other, er, uh, something like that.

Closing statement: I like a lot of the past contestants, but I have to give a big shout out to Brad’s second season, because those girls, as a whole, are pretty freaking rad. Ashley S., Ashley H., Marissa, Jackie, Britt and Michelle are some of my faves who actually attended the reunion. I honestly didn’t know who 95% of the 100+ people that were there, but I can say that it was a pretty fun group. Good. Lord. The highlight of the reunion for me was waking up next to a jumbo Slim Jim. I’m not kidding, I found the world’s largest Slim Jim in the snack shop.

As Chris welcomes the Ladies, I will give you a fashion rundown and one word (first word to pop into my head) about each of them.

Please welcome….

Amber:

Who? I don’t remember her, but she has on a crew neck, quarter length sleeved neutral sequin number that is cute enough to match her pretty face, hair, and smile.

Monica:

Confused. Yes, we get it Monica, you are a tomboy. Aside from her “whoop whoop” fist pump vs. a dainty wave to the audience, her dress actually impressed me. Royal Blue looks great on blondes and the style is actually current to trend. She has consistently been on the worst dressed list until tonight. Maybe she learned something from my blog? What she didn’t learn was how to do her hair. Poor girl has got that over processed blonde causing it to look rough, and further more, the slicked back ponytail/side braid would have been cute if it was more tousled, teased, and soft. Oh, and at least braided through to the ends of her hair.

Jamie:

Awkward. Jamie also impressed me with her style. She looks like she is going out for a fun, glamorous night on the town vs. chaperoning at the local prom. I actually met Jamie last weekend and she is a blast! Super sweet and totally cool. When she told me she had been reading my blogs, I contemplated exiting the building out of fear. Thankfully, she was a good sport about my past blogs of humorously tearing apart her dresses.

Samantha:

Dreadful. Annoying. Brutal. Spazoid. Whoopsies, that was 4 words. I can’t see her outfit past her big, fat mouth. Talk about annoying. Now that she has been on TV, maybe she could endorse Pet Smart and wear a muzzle 110% of the time. Put a lid on it, lady. She looks just like Cheri Oteri from the infamous SNL skit and acts like her too…

Jacklyn:

Uhhhhh. She made the show hilarious to watch. She was super mean to Shawntel, which sincerely pisses me off. I DO, however, love her sexy little red number. It’s very hard to pull of this bust line, but she did so in good taste. You can’t see it that well in this photo, but the bust dips lower than the standard, sweetheart neckline.

Erica:

MEAN! If there is one thing more off putting than her dreadful dress, it’s her personality. We thought Courtney was mean? Well, calling a girl fat and ugly is despicable and ridiculous. Just awful. I was honestly in tears by the things she said about Shawntel originally, but having to watch Shawntel relive this mean girl moment, only to hear Erica say more mean things to her while she was in the hot seat makes my skin boil. Erica states, “She is uglier in person,” and I can’t help but laugh at the irony of Shawntel’s beauty blowing her looks out of the water.

Britney:

Hilarious. So what if she wasn’t attracted to Ben, at least she was honest and left the show! One of my favorite things about the Women Tell All is seeing the audience react to the girls’ banter. When she said she wasn’t into Ben, the women in the audience gasped as if somebody insulted their mothers. I want to high five the life out of her for putting Samantha in her place.

Elyse:

Rough. I must say, I couldn’t stand Elise after her inner man came out during the season when she was going psyco over Shawntel, but, like I say weekly in this blog, everyone deserves a second chance. Elyse looked beautiful tonight not only on the outside, but also on the inside. She was completely put together physically speaking, and her sincere, mature apology to Shawntel put her back in my good graces.

Jenna:

Frantic. She seems to be a fragile, nervous mess on the show, but in real life she is more put together. The camera isn’t for everyone. Some people get more emotional, shy or scared in front of a camera and act differently than they normally would. I met Jenna a few weeks ago and she seemed totally normal and chill. I love her short sleeved, purple sequin frock and tousled, beach wave hair.

Jennifer:

Blah. I thought I liked her until tonight. She said some damaging things about Blakeley straight to Ben’s face and in front of Blakeley herself, such as, “Why would you send me home before Blakeley? Would you really rather introduce her to your mother over me?” She continued to be both hurtful and harmful to Blakeley and Ben didn’t even interject. This whole season is full of mean, rude people.

Rachel:

Cool. The always-beautiful Rachel wore an off-white, long sleeved sequined dress that was short in length and super cute. I think she would look better in a bolder color, but she still pulled it off.

Casey S:

Waldo. No seriously, where was she all season? Maybe she had to go to the bathroom a lot? Or showered a lot? I don’t know, but when she was on camera, she always was dressed to impress. Tonight she wore a stylish sequined tank with a solid colored skirt and a super fun, over the top cuff on her right wrist. Her hair needs a little help, but that’s about it.

Blakely:

Victim. I bet Blakeley wanted to wear a more revealing dress tonight, but in fear of the girl gang, she opted for something more conservative as to not get made fun of by these vicious women. I feel so bad for her. She literally just sits there and takes it from these ladies. I like Blakeley and have heard nothing but amazing things about her.

Emily:

Sweetheart. Emily looked more gorgeous than ever in an edgy little pale purple cocktail dress. She is just about the only girl sitting up there that is 100% normal and level headed. A couple of the other girls come close, but still not 100%. I hope we see her on Bachelor Pad 3!

Nicki:

Stunning. Nicki is a plain and simple, very nice girl. She is a good girl with a heart of gold and I have no doubt she will be over the top happy one day. She looks completely put together with a wonderful dress and jewelry to boot.

Kacie B:

Cheesy. Kacie borrowed her dress from her mother and it just didn’t work for her. Some of these girls have this look in their eye when they wave to the audience that screams, “I think I’m famous now.”

Ohhhhh man, where oh where to begin…

Let’s start with some mean comments said by the women tonight: These are just a few…

Kacie: “Jamie doesn’t seem very bright.”
Blakeley: “Jamie is very annoying.”
Kacie: “Courtney is unattractive.”
Jaclyn: “Shawntel is dumpster trash and a bitch.”
Samantha: “Blakeley, you sit there with your #&$!*% out face #&$!ing Ben in a pool. You are a bully and, like so immature.”
Britney: “Samantha you are like the Chihuahua in the house you just don’t quit talking. You are so annoying.”
Jennifer: “I mean, like, really Ben? You considered taking home Blakeley to your home over me? Like, no offence, but look at her.”
Samantha: “OK, here’s the thing. Why are so many of us such great friends, yet you couldn’t be friends.” “She bullied other girls.”

Samantha appears to be all hyped up on speed as she annoys the living daylights out of me. Britney sure did put that nut case in place! Samantha uses the Hollywood trend word, “bullying” over and over. How do you not know when you are talking too much and being extremely annoying? Her mic cutting in and out was funny enough to make me nearly pee my pants. Samantha is swearing non-stop and talking way too loud in an annoying valley girl voice that even Blakeley turns around and looks at her like, “What are you on right now?”

Hot Seat: Shawntel

Shawntel: You know? She works at a morgue. She could literally bury these B*#ches. This sweet girl gets ridiculed in the hot seat by some of these tacky ladies. I have zero desire to meet Erica, and I can’t believe I had to see that gawd awful dress again that she wore in Vegas. Get it together sunshine! Not only does she not even apologize, but also she makes it worse by saying that she herself has big thighs! Erica will never have anything on Shawntel and I literally hope to God I never see her face. Make fun of what someone is wearing, their hair, etc…things they can change, but HOW DARE she call a girl fat and ugly! This is one, disturbed little individual with an annoying lisp. (Yes, I know she can’t help having a lisp, but since she is so mean, I’m pointing out HER stupid flaws). Jaclyn calls Shawntel dumpster trash? Uhhh, huh…well to be honest, I’m still curious as to how your a*% even got cast for this show. Elyse apologizes for her, “stupid, famous quote,” and I was confused only because I’m trying to figure out why she thinks she and her quotes are famous? Emily comes to the rescue by telling Shawntel that she is stunning and had she not been, none of the girls would have been jealous. Emily shows so much class at all times. She would have made a phenomenal Bachelorette. Get this girl on Bachelor Pad!

Emily: She is obviously Chris Harrison’s favorite as he showers her with compliments. I love this girl. She is genuine, fun, level headed and unique. She is about the only girl left on this show with class. She only voiced her opinion about Courtney in a mature way to Ben. She speaks so well and always knows the right thing to say! She brought up the fact that she felt Ben sent her home because of Courtney’s dislike for her. I said that in my blog when Emily got kicked off (if you remember). I definitely think Courtney had a lot to do with her going home.

As Chris asks Emily how she will feel if Ben picks Courtney next week, the camera scans to Kacie B. and Nicki hold each other as if they are sitting at a funeral. Give me a break! Who cares who he picks! Worry about guys you have a shot with. He dumped you guys months ago…move on!

Nicki: Boring

Kacie: Boring

Courtney: Not Boring. As Camp Kacie high five each other in their Courtney bashing session, I can’t help but feel as though they are no better than her. If someone rubs you the wrong way or you don’t agree with their personality, then just walk away. Personally, if someone is rude to me or I don’t like their behavior, I simply don’t talk to them anymore and I certainly wouldn’t allow it to affect my emotions and attitude. I meet people out in LA all the time that rub me the wrong way. It’s a part of life that these girls will learn to handle better once they become women.

I nearly vomited at how nerdy these girls looked when a clip of Kacie was shown, talking about how she hates Courtney, and how she wants to kill her like a spider by smashing her head. At this point, all the girls collaboratively perform reenact Kacie’s mannerisms. Yuck. At one point, didn’t Kacie say she wanted to slit Courtney’s head open like an avocado? Or something to the effect? If it had been Courtney that said these viscous things, she probably would be charged with attempted assault charges. But, since Kacie has an accent and looks super sweet, the audience is blinded to her equal evil side.

Ben: Seriously.

“Welcome to my nightmare.”

Ben says facing all of the women is his worst nightmare? Well, if my worst nightmare was being on television show and traveling the world for free while choosing between 25 beautiful people from the opposite gender and at the same time gaining a ton of publicity for my business, then I’d be a blessed woman. The only bad thing is that he has to face them all again. Boo-freaking-hoo Ben Flajnik. Boo. Freaking. Hoo. Your hair is like a Dashboard Confessional song, “screaming infidelities.”

As the girls confront Ben, a few things stood out to me. Sweet little Jennifer? Sha right. Why is Jennifer comparing herself to Blakeley? She sounds ridiculously insecure and cruel! She says, “Why would you send me home before Blakeley? Would you really take her home to meet your mother over me?” Jeez what a B*#ch! Jennifer talks about poor Blakeley as if she isn’t sitting right next to her. Man oh man these girls are relentless.

AWKWARD Jamie trips over her A.D.D. sentences while trying to inform Ben that she still wants a chance with him! “I still love you Ben!” At this point in the episode, I’m all the way under my covers with the sheets pulled up just under my eyes so that I can cover them during uncomfortable moments like this.

Meanwhile, over at Camp Kacie, talk about bullying. They are all ganging up something fierce. Is she running a Southern cult? Like one of those weird cults that films their extremely weird church services on TV while speaking in tongues? I still can’t get annoying Samantha out of my head. Yooooshyoooyuckieshiverrrrrrr… (Oh, that’s just a noise I make in my head sometimes.)

Well, at least Jenna finally got ahold of one of Monica’s tampons. All right, I’m off to call my parents to thank them for raising me the way they did.

  1. You should host your own talk show. Seriously. You’re classy yet hilarious.

    Comment by Lauren — March 6, 2012 @ 12:24 pm

  2. Food for thought: By your logic: Courtney says rude things , rubs girls the wrong way-girls react to this by being rude back = classless and equally mean. They should “turn the other cheek when this happens”
    But you saying things like: “ I don’t know how you a** ever got cast for this show” “Now that she has been on TV, maybe she could endorse Pet Smart and wear a muzzle 110% of the time. Put a lid on it, lady.” That makes you classier than they girls reacting to Courtney? I have absolutely no problem with your comments and I agree with most of them. But think about how hypocritical it is to say that the girls’ reaction to Courtney are just as cruel and then proceeding to cut all of them up in your blog. I’m saying this not just toward you but because I see this again and again in various blogs.
    In my opinion also ,ripping apart someone’s style is pretty much just as bad as calling them ugly. You are, in effect, saying they look ugly  That said, I enjoy your recaps and point of view.

    Comment by Heather — March 6, 2012 @ 12:42 pm

  3. HA! Whatever Natalie! Get off your high horse!

    Comment by Shannon — March 6, 2012 @ 12:48 pm

  4. You go girl!!!

    Loved this. Honesty. It is so rare.

    I hope Ben and Courtney have learned alot from this experience and take it, to improve their lives. Courtney needs to be kinder and gentler, and I believe she will, especially since her family has had to suffer from her actions, as well as Ben. And I hope Ben loses the cockiness he exhibited after Ashley H. dumped him and he thought he was better than her, and thought he could take this role and do so much better.

    I hope they can grow together to be better people, and I sincerely wish them happiness.

    I love Lindzi and hope she will find the man of her dreams soon.

    Comment by Jacquie — March 6, 2012 @ 12:51 pm

  5. I laughed out loud at your comparison/picture for Samantha to the Cheri Oteri drunk/drugged out woman. Brilliant!

    Comment by Jennifer — March 6, 2012 @ 12:54 pm

  6. Thank YOU Natalie. I was seriously already anxiously awaiting your blog while watching the WTA last night because I figured you might be the only one that agrees with me on how unfairly these girls acted.

    You (and a few of your other fabulous lady colleagues) should start a “How to Act on The Bachelor” boot camp. You always get it right and Bachelor Pad won’t be the same without you next season!

    Comment by Car — March 6, 2012 @ 12:55 pm

  7. Sure but do Natalie’s comments make her any classier than the girls?

    Comment by Heather — March 6, 2012 @ 12:57 pm

  8. I can’t help but to see this blog as super hypocritical just like someone else has commented. You are talking about how classless and rude most of these girls are, but yet you are no better. The comments you made in this blog are very rude, and I understand some of them did things to possibly deserve it, but if you’re saying that these girls should turn the other cheek and not fight back, you should probably be doing the same thing.

    Comment by Kayla — March 6, 2012 @ 1:00 pm

  9. This is by far the least enjoyable post I’ve ever read. Get over yourself.

    Comment by Rachel — March 6, 2012 @ 1:06 pm

  10. Natalie’s completely a hypocrite! (w/a HIDEOUS face she tries making up for w/cute clothes!)

    Comment by Jen — March 6, 2012 @ 1:12 pm

  11. THANK YOU for calling them out and telling it like it is. You summed it up so nicely!

    Comment by Nicole — March 6, 2012 @ 1:12 pm

  12. Exactly, Rachel.

    Natalie, you just made yourself look like a HUGE idiot. I personally think you should call your parents and ask them why in the F they raised someone to turn out like yourself.

    Comment by Amber — March 6, 2012 @ 1:13 pm

  13. While I enjoy reading your blog, I do agree that you are being somewhat hypocritical calling these girls out in the manner that you do (kinda the same as they were doing to each other/Courtney) I also don’t get how in one sentence you call Nikki stunning with a heart of gold and in the next call her boring. Aside from Emily (who is well-spoken and very eloquent in explaining her distaste for Ben and Courtney and they poor behavior), I also thought Nikki explained her points of view very well. Although she is almost a bit too naive considering Ben “one of the best men” she has ever known even after watching his horrible behavior throughout the season. She didn’t say mean comments about Courtney but rather explained why she was suspicious of Courtney’s change in attitude.

    Also, I did agree about Kacie B. and Jennifer…I was disappointed to see their comments and digs at other girls. I didn’t understand why Jennifer was so bitter over the fact that Blakely stayed and she was asked to leave. What’s the big deal anyway? After watching this season, aren’t the ladies glad they didn’t end up with Ben?? I mean Emily summed it up very well by saying if he reacted to her the way that he did, he’s NOT the guy for her. He lacked respect in the way he responded and was always jumping to Courtney’s defense. He’s no prince or prize.

    Anyway, just some of my thoughts…

    Comment by aly — March 6, 2012 @ 1:14 pm

  14. This is a quite rude and hurtful post. You’re no better than the girls when you insult them.

    Comment by Hypocritical — March 6, 2012 @ 1:21 pm

  15. I usually like your blogs but you come across just as mean as some of these girls.

    Comment by Melissa — March 6, 2012 @ 1:25 pm

  16. Like many of the girls last night said.. If everyone else is able to be friends, EXCEPT Courtney, then chances are SHE’S the issue.

    And now here. If the majority of commenters think YOU sound like a hypocrite, chances are we’re right.

    Natalie, you don’t seem too bright, so I tried to make this comment as simple as possible!

    Comment by Lisa — March 6, 2012 @ 1:30 pm

  17. All I can say is I LOVE YOU NATALIE! Your honesty is ah-mazing, and I love how you can put it all together and still have class. When you thank your mom for raising you right, tell her I said thank you for having such an awesome daughter.

    Comment by Donna — March 6, 2012 @ 1:32 pm

  18. I don’t really agree with you at all in terms of the girls stooping to Courtney’s level in their comments about her. Courtney bashed them and said personal, hurtful, below-the-belt things about them when they seemed to be nothing but nice/cordial to her. They, on the other hand, are reacting to a person who has been unnecessarily rude and offensive to them. They don’t sit there saying “Courtney just looks so DUMB!” or “She’s the type of girl your boyfriend cheats on you with.” They’re saying “She’s mean and hurtful and doesn’t seem to be here to for the right reasons.” Theres a big different between attacking someone for no reason and defending yourself! Just sayin.

    Comment by Tara — March 6, 2012 @ 1:59 pm

  19. Shawntel was offended and hurt but she never retaliated by being equally offensive and rude. Did anyone else see that? That’s what graceful and classy looks like. If this blog was written mainly in defense of Shawntel, then you failed miserably. Often women wonder why they are single, its because they never realize that the common denominator in their failed relationships are themselves. We should always aim to take the high road, and if we don’t show it,act it or it teach it, we surely shouldn’t preach it…i’m just saying.

    Comment by Reality_bites — March 6, 2012 @ 2:28 pm

  20. You just did what you are hating on them for. HA

    Comment by Sarah O — March 6, 2012 @ 2:38 pm

  21. “I would make out with everyone in the house for, like, $20.” Hm, who said that? Your parents did watch you on television, right? What would you tell your parents, “thanks for raising me to be skanky on television.” You’re not classy. And what you schemed up with Michael was wrong. Really wrong. What goes around, comes back aorund.

    Comment by ifyoucandishitthenyoucantakeit — March 6, 2012 @ 2:40 pm

  22. This was actually therapeutic to read haha you said everything I was thinking! Most of these girls are no different than Courtney, they were just portrayed differently on TV, especially “Kacie B”. (Hint: if the guy you’re in love with still calls you by the first initial of your last name, you aint getting engaged, GF.) She was literally high-fived by the girls for saying she wants to squash Courtney like a bug and punch her in the face, yet she “showed restraint”? I don’t get it, and I’m glad you saw the hypocrisy too!! Love your blog :)

    Comment by Katie — March 6, 2012 @ 2:56 pm

  23. Very refreshing to see someone finally point out that Courtney was by far NOT the only mean girl. And I agree, a lot of these girls are loving the fame they think they now have.

    Comment by Maggie — March 6, 2012 @ 2:57 pm

  24. you go girl!! :)

    Comment by krysty — March 6, 2012 @ 3:13 pm

  25. This is by far my favorite Bachelor blog! Exactly how I felt about it too. Keep up the good work!

    Comment by Diana — March 6, 2012 @ 3:26 pm

  26. Great blog – I can’t believe all the “haters” on here who read your blog but yet “can’t stand you”. Strange!

    You are on point with your assessments of the ladies.

    I wasn’t a fan of Courtney when the show first started but absolutely see where she is coming from now.

    I hope her and Ben are happy!

    Comment by Jennifer — March 6, 2012 @ 3:34 pm

  27. Thank you for this. I was looking for a way to contact courtney when I stumbled across this blog. I watched the season as well as anyone else but was taken aback learning that there was such a backlash against courtney. Ben and courtney seem so natural together. it was the first time in the history of my watching the show that I thought the body language of the pairing reflected real, genuine feelings. Courtney responded with barbs of her own, no doubt, but i didn’t think they were unprovoked. It is hard to be the quirky girl. Men can be very attracted to the uniqueness of a woman and other women don’t really understand that. Kacie B. Left saying what’s wrong with me, and I think that is the essence of what was wrong with her: she was trying to fit into a mold rather than sparkle with a uniqueness. It pains me to think that Courtney is suffering in her family and friendships over this show. This is how the world breaks down people who are different, and takes the sparkle out of them.

    Comment by Kristin — March 6, 2012 @ 3:42 pm

  28. Wonderful blog!!!

    Comment by Lori — March 6, 2012 @ 3:54 pm

  29. wtf?!? You’re a hypocrite! I agree that Courtney was not the only mean girl on the show but she was the only 2 faced person! She had violent comments and she told been she tried to get along with the women, she tried?!? I agree that we should be more fair and not be so harsh on Courtney, but really, you clearly have issues. You are defensive and maybe it’s because you relate to her. Maybe. But who the f*/- are you to preach about not being mean?!? Practice what you preach! You are telling people to put a muzzle on it and they are still girls? Wtf is wrong with you dude? THIS IS THE LAST TIME I READ YOUR BLOG. I WILL UNFOLLOW YOU ON TWITTER. YOU ARE PATHETIC.

    Comment by JMonterroso — March 6, 2012 @ 4:51 pm

  30. Cruel comments Natalie.
    Your true colors are showing. Not pretty!!

    Comment by Sage — March 6, 2012 @ 5:00 pm

  31. Natalie I am thinkin’ you should call your parents and plead for some lessons in humility, graciousness and self respect.
    I doubt you could handle the learning curve but 1/2 a lady is better than no lady at all.

    Comment by Hanna — March 6, 2012 @ 5:09 pm

  32. I don’t know what gives the right for anyone to say it’s about time to “get over” someone. It was obviously still hard for Nicki.. but so what?!?!
    You’re post went to the same level of the WTA episode. Sorry.

    Comment by Thais — March 6, 2012 @ 5:22 pm

  33. Awesome blog Natalie!! Thank you so much for pointing out that these other women are all incredibly mean (with the possible exception of a couple of them)! Where does all that venom come from? I think that it was big of Courtney to apologize, and in the end, she was much less rude than everyone else!

    Comment by Lizzie — March 6, 2012 @ 5:26 pm

  34. Natalie… you are so arrogant.
    Who died and made you king/queen?

    Srsly, get off your high horse. There’s a reason why Ryan wasn’t looking at you and your tacky outfit.

    Comment by nicole — March 6, 2012 @ 6:12 pm

  35. Read the comments/reactions to your blog.

    I completely agree that you seem to have lowered yourself to the same standard that you despise to much.

    HOWEVER, I bet I would thoroughly enjoy discussing your opinions with you! I enjoy conversation that makes me think.

    That being said… is it sad that a 27 yr old single guy read this blog and commented on it? lol …I hope not…

    Comment by Daniel — March 6, 2012 @ 6:35 pm

  36. Great blog this week, Natalie! I really liked how you commented on each girl individually with their picture. Your comments were accurate, entertaining & funny.

    I was surprised that none of the girls asked Ben about the skinny dipping, do you think they did, but it didn’t make the show? Or they didn’t have the guts to call him out on it? A lot of them seemed to be still kissing Ben’s a**, which was irritating. At least Emily realized that she is too good for him!

    Comment by Bella — March 6, 2012 @ 6:48 pm

  37. -While I was disappointed with some of the girls (namely Jennifer, Erika, and, to an extent, Kacie), I think you were way, way too harsh on the group as a whole. You vilify them for being mean, but you’ve proven that you’re not much better. I’ve always enjoyed your blogs in the past, but this one seems a bit hypocritical.

    -Elyse said her quote was “famous” because it got shown over, and over, and over, and mentioned time and time again

    -Didn’t Courtney say she wanted to rip Emily’s head off and verbally assault her? So she’s no better than Kacie (if she did indeed make the comment about slicing Courtney’s head like an avocado; I don’t recall)

    Comment by Deanna — March 6, 2012 @ 7:09 pm

  38. Honestly, I agreed with every single one of your main points. While Courtney doesn’t seem like the nicest person ever, most of the other girls were equally terrible, whether to her or to others. Team Emily!

  39. mostly in agreement with you natalie-I felt really annoyed yesterday with the whole Kacie B and Nikki holding hands thing and honestly felt disgusted by the gang mentality shown by most of the women when courtney came on.

  40. Amen, sister.
    Love your honesty….as it may appear to be hypocritical in some aspects, I do feel that it is well deserved and that you are only giving the girls (who deserve it) a taste of their own medicine.
    Love reading your blog every week!

  41. Sure a long list of character flaws. Oy!

    ~~ hypocrite,rude,lacking class,lacking self respect, arrogant,defensive,pathetic,not too bright, not gracious~~

    Sorry Natalie but I am adding INAPPROPRIATE

    Comment by Brianne — March 6, 2012 @ 7:38 pm

  42. Hmmm..not sure what to think of the blog but you seem to understand the “inside” view of this show..it must be nice to get paid to support a TV show…either way if you sleep at night..then good…
    I am in the process of writing a paper about how reality TV is the down fall of American society, and how it breeds hatred.
    Biggest question..why did the show allow these girls to go without knowing what happened during the skinny dipping scene…they set them up to look stupid…not right. In addition they make HUGE deal about Casey and her EX-Boyfriend…Ben was an A** to her and all the show did was “somewhat” address it last night….I think I just finished my paper…

    Comment by Caree — March 6, 2012 @ 7:42 pm

  43. Isn’t it creepy how negativity works? The women on the show were calling Courtney out for being mean, but were mean themselves. You call them out on it and end up being mean too. Then some readers are upset about you being mean and are mean themselves about it! We all do it from time to time unfortunately. We just have to decide to stop at some point.

  44. Love Courtney! I think she is gorgeous, interesing, funny and unique. Her words weren’t half as bad as some of them there tonight. What a bunch of middle monkies!

    Very disappointed in Jennifer. She”was” one of my fav. Not anymore. I thought Emilys dress was way too small for her, and her cleavage looked, not so attractive nor her rolling none stop eye movements..Kacie B gets on my nerves so bad. She Always looks like she is either drunk, high or tired. I do not see what others see in her. She annoys me to pieces.
    Casey S is stunning, and I really like her. Rachel has great taste, and I like her, too. Monica..oh my..she kinda freaks me out just a bit..and the yappy Sam girl, well, someone should give her a …. exactly!

  50. You crack me up everytime Nat! I needed a laugh today and I agree with you that the girls were all mean to eachother. you never say anything bad about anyone, so this blog was fun to read b/c u can tell they struck a nerve w you talking mean about shantell and other girls. Good for you for speaking you mind!

    Comment by Melissa — March 6, 2012 @ 10:16 pm

  51. I wholeheartedly agree with this blog! These girls are all so mean! At least when Courtney was mean it was usually hilarious, unlike the rest of these girls who were just being mean! Love this post!

    Comment by Britt — March 6, 2012 @ 10:17 pm

  52. Wow ..everyone has there own opinion as to what to think .. and say on this .. some good some not so good… mine well it is clear one it is a show a show for us who view it but real for those who are in it . they all went on to win Bens heart.. that’s the object of the show , noone knew who was going to end up with Ben but they knew if they would like them or they would not have been on the show.. now with that being said.. its a show each and every one of them had to do what they thought was good for them to reach Ben to make Ben want them. no matter what it took alto i would have done a lil different i don’t see really what Courtney did that the others didn’t do except they did it in a pack she did it alone she went in with a plan to gain his heart and she followed through with it . the show is who will win his heart. and she did .. and it is clear that they really cared for each other from the start but he gave them a chance. so all in all like i said it was a show to see who could win a heart and she did it .. now it is up to them to make it work in the long run not us . people don’t like to loose and when they do they don’t loose alone ..so either be happy she did what she planed to do and except that all of them came on the show to do the same just they didn’t have a plan as good as hers .. she won let it go for god sake…

  53. Natalie you have the right to voice your opinion and I LOVE IT! your not trying to be better than anyone, and you were dead on with your direct comments towards these girls, people need to stop hating on you, you rock girl !

    Comment by Stephanie — March 6, 2012 @ 10:31 pm

  54. SO — Natalie has the right to voice her opinions (many negative and not at all flattering) but the girls on the WTA don’t have that same right? Hardly fair, is it?
    Stephanie, “hating on” is a pretty strong phrase to use.
    I disagree with much of what Natalie says and I definitely don’t admire her for degrading people for the clothes they wear. To me, it’s shallow and judgemental.
    In saying that, I certainly do not hate her. Hell, I don’t even know the girl and I sure don’t plan any future meet and greet.

    Comment by Sam — March 6, 2012 @ 10:51 pm

  55. I’m sorry. I just cant keep this to myself anymore. Everyone thinks Ben is such a hot snot on a silver platter,but all he is,is a cold booger on a paper plate. All these girls being tacky,hurtful and anoying to eachother while in their little cliques boggles my mind! First of all, the issue of the skinny dipping should of been the first thing they confronted Ben about. Secondly,most of the time when he would send a girl home, he barely gave an explanation and shoved them off into the car as fast as possible. Wimp! No wonder why they felt like they were left hanging! They didnt see it comming! And third, I wish Emily would of told Ben what she said last night, right to his face when he told her to “tread lightly”. Really Ben? Is that a threat? Did you ever think that maybe Emily was being sincere? And that her only motivation was warning you cuz Courtney was such a bitch to her? Oops Emily didnt show me her boobs so I guess I gotta side with Courtney! ( thats just how I saw it by Bens reaction) I dont think he is as nice a guy as everyone makes him out to be. I wasnt even there thank god! But if you ask me, Bens pretty typical. And a total dork!! So stop fighting please. Courtney…I get it. She didnt even bother me that bad, nor did anyone else.And maybe Natalie is being a tad hypocrytical, but she’s doing it all in fun just like I would be if it were my blog lol!

    Comment by emy — March 6, 2012 @ 11:51 pm

  57. Courtney may have won but, how did she achieve this and for what purpose? Honesty/trust is foundation for a successful relationship. Courtney can make whatever excuses she likes for being nasty and mean to the girls but, what I find so wrong was her lying over and over again to Ben when he asked her about her issues with the girls. She misled him. It shows a total disrespect to Ben and that’s very sad and there’s no excuse for that.

    Comment by Yinye — March 7, 2012 @ 12:15 am

  58. This was a very good write up. Spot on. All season Courtney was the villain…but look at some of these other women. Not so appealing. I lost all respect for Jeniffer, she was my top picks, and her bashing Blakeley was just wrong. “I’m the queen and you picked the pauper over me’ Blakeley is a pretty women, and has much to offer a man, she is fun athletic “as we seen in the baseball game’..Anyway now I know why many of these women are 28+ and still single..Cause they are vindictive and mean..ie Jaclyn ,Monica,Jeniffer, Elise, and Erica. These are the kind of women who are always play the victims we hear in divorce courts..yet most people know why the marriage ended.
    Kacie B- She needs a down home country boy same with Nicki. If Ben picked her or Nicki it would end in a few months..they are two polar opposites. i think Ben would be best with Courtney -Lindzi or Rachael types. More sophisticated and city like. Nicki and Kacie better suited for a Garth Brooks type man. Emily better suited for a book worm..maybe Ames type.
    Overall I also am not impressed with these women this season and agree with you Natalia, that Brads last season had the best women on looks and inner beauty. Shawtel Newton is a real classy women. She is just beautiful.

    Comment by April Sutter — March 7, 2012 @ 12:27 am

  59. I noticed Ames is having a caption contest with one of the pics he posted on his twitter account. Hope u don’t mind my using ur space to mention it. Just figured you bachelor nation bloggers could come up the best ones because you guys have met him and your funny. Some of your followers can be pretty clever as well. thanks.

    Comment by Shelagh — March 7, 2012 @ 4:37 am

  60. Natalie you had bitches on your season too and on the BP Michelle Money acted like a total nutcase on drugs! Now since she has hooked up with Graham Bunn its all forgotten?
    WHat makes you such an experct on fashion ? I couldnt stand how YOU chose to pick on the single mother(Ella) on the BP about her dresses and called them cheap! Maybe being a single mother she couldnt afford much. SO shame on you! MEAN GIRL!
    You blogged about it and you said it on the stupid stupid classless college like show “Smack Down”! Most of the people on there talked about everyone else too like mean girl and boys and then everyone laughs! So pot called kettle black! You have no right to blog about anyone actually.

    Comment by Julie R — March 7, 2012 @ 5:54 am

  61. Natalie.

    This is how I feel:

    1. I totally agree with you about Kacie & Nicki being co-mayors for boringville. I totally fast forwarded their interviews

    2. You’re right, they are all mean girls. That being said, I do think Court is probably just a meanie model, and is now worried about being seen negatively so she is pulling out the tears. I dont’t really buy the “I am uncomfortable, so I was mean…. you were just mean (with others) end of story.

    3. I totally agree with all your style thoughts and opinions. Though were the eff is your thoughts on court’s dress?!?!?!?! I have legit pulled some of your style tips from here & your wesbite. So thanks for that.

    4. Is it just me … or is Ben a bit of a mean boy. Let me be honest, on a few bored moments, I watched youtube inteviews with him (post filming) and he rolls his eyes at questions. Seems distant and perhaps slightly rude and as though he seems to feel like he is better than people. I didn’t watch his season on the Bachelorette, but I thought on the first episode or two that he seemed genuine. Now it’s like it all went to his head and he is the mayor next to boringville and is running douchetown?

    … that’s all. Natalie! You’re awesome.

    PS – Blog on your site about the best looks for my brand new, HUNTER talls. They look great for my commute to the office with a skirt & tights, but I think the only other thing I can pull off with them is skinny jeansd and a button down with a cool scarf? Thoughts?

    Comment by DeeTee — March 7, 2012 @ 7:27 am

  63. At first, I was relieved that someone else out there was disturbed by the televised lynching of Courtney, but then there you go, singing the praises of Emily.

    What, is everyone blind?! Emily was the nastiest of the nasties! It was a case of the evil E’s — Elyse, Erika and Emily, with Emily as ringleader.

    What impressed me most about Emily during this season, was how clueless and mean she was. She is very self-righteous, and her attempt to “help” Ben see Courtney clearly was purely self-serving and (rightly) back-fired in her face. She never cut others a break, even with her supposed apology to Courtney. She said that she had a change of heart about Courtney during the group date in Panama because Courtney applied tattoos to her… Well, did y’all forget the nasty and dismissive things Emily had to say about Courtney while she was actually on the date, both to the camera and to others, behind Courtney’s back?

    Emily is a real piece of work, and seems to have everyone snowed.

    As for Elyse, I didn’t see anything remotely nice about her. And I hope it was clear for all to see how nasty Jennifer, a supposed sweetheart, really is. Pity that St. Kacie B. and St. Nikki are still on their pedestals, despite evidence to the contrary.

    The only girls in that mob who had a shred of decency or niceness were Casey S. and Jamie.

    Courtney and Ben shared a connection from the first instant they met; all the other girls could see it, although try as they might, they couldn’t understand it, or compete with it. A good part of their hatred towards Courtney is based on that; the rest is just the garden-variety meaness with which women treat each other.

    It may be a stretch, but I truly hope that Courtney and Ben will make it through the long term, and ride out this horror show. Living well is the best revenge.

    Comment by Romy — March 7, 2012 @ 7:38 am

  64. Natalie…Great recap girl!!! I couldn’t agree with you more on everything you wrote. I have always thought that Courtney was NOT the only one that said nasty things. This WTA just showed everyone how nasty and brutal these other girls are. Jennifer really showed her real self when she made that remark about Blakely, but it doesn’t surprise me because I knew the producers just chose to not show a lot of the girls remarks and just show Courtney’s only…and btw I really admire Courtney’s bravery for coming on the show and apologizing, I know it took a lot of guts to face these girls.

    Comment by Annie — March 7, 2012 @ 7:41 am

  65. OK. So I was the poster who first mentioned I thought Natalie was being a tad hypocritical, however, that overall I like the blog and did not disagree that some of the other girls were also mean. To all the posters since who have taken that comment and escalated it by making mean, personal attacks on Natalie: HOLY CRAP YOU MISSED THE POINT. That is all.

    Comment by Heather — March 7, 2012 @ 8:02 am

  66. I personally love everything you said. I have actually like courtney from the beginning and think she’s getting too much heat for things she said when, like you said, the other girls are doing the same thing if not worse. I think she was the only one who really wanted Ben and went for it. Their chemistry is undeniable. I know if I was on the show it would be hard for me to befriend my boyfriends other girlfriends so I have a serious problem with people who are judging her for how she acts, when you can’t possibly imagine what it’s like to be in that situation.

    Comment by Kaitlin — March 7, 2012 @ 10:45 am

  67. Natalie, while I enjoyed parts of your recap, I wouldn’t be so quick to call your parents.

    I seem to recall quite a few things you did and said on national TV that were inapproprate, classless and downright mean. Why do byou feel you can sit on your high horse and judge others?

    Comment by rssucks — March 7, 2012 @ 12:18 pm

  70. Many contestants leave these cheesy reality shows with an inflated sense of entitlement.
    There seems to be MUCH confusion re. being famous versus being simply recognizable.
    I really admire the men and women who leave the shows and then move on with (what I call) a ‘normal’ healthy lifestle.
    The term fame whore is what I often hear regarding those desperately craving the spot light. Seems a sad way to live a life.

  73. Wow. I’m trying to figure out what to say to this blog post. For starters, you’re being just as mean to all of them. And what is with the comment about you choosing what people can and cannot make fun of? WHERE did you get this information? Really? This is ground breaking stuff! I wish I had known exactly what to make fun of people about so that it did not affect them at all!!!! (sarcasm)Bullying is bullying. Period. Ugh.

  74. You are such an attention seeking skank Natalie. No words to describe how conceited you come off and there is nothing you possess that any woman in their right mind would want emulate. N.O.T.H.I.N.G.

    You are loud and obnoxious. So annoying. No man with his shit together would even date you.

    Comment by GO AWAY NATALIE — March 7, 2012 @ 2:23 pm

  75. Natalie. weren’t you the woman who cried on the Bachelor Pad because the guys voted you “most likely to always be a bridesmaid, never a bride”? First time I saw you on BP 2 I didn’t know who you were and I thought you were a super pretty California Barbie type (always heavily sought after by men). Didn’t understand why i hadn’t heard of you until you spoke and realized you had a masculine voice like many women who are cursed with too much height and an athletic bone structure. Men are turned off by women who aren’t feminine the same way you wouldn’t want to date a man who was too effeminate. You say it’s not okay to say mean things about someone (but your not guilty because in all your blogs you only cut up people’s clothing (yah, right)and that’s the appropriate way to insult and hurt someone. You criticized B and C for skinny dipping on national tv but when you took your clothes off in public you were morally superior because you did it in a pool that was designated for nudity FOR PETE’S SAKE!! Will you be revising the Bible so you can tailor it for your convenience??

  77. Hey Natalie, i read your blog and I came to a conclusion: you don’t like Ali. That is why you quote Erica Rose.

    I watch the vblog and i realise you like to fish the bachelors of Ashley’s season for whether or not they were into her/kissed her.

    There is also a hint that you ‘re not a fan of Emily Maynard being the Bachelorette.

    So i think you seem to have problems with all Bachelorettes, because you have not been made one?

    If Emily O’Brien of this season was the bachelorette, I think you would also turn around and find something negative to say about her.

    But i agree with you that Courtney is no less evil than Emily, or Kacie. That scene of Kacie, Emily, Nicki, and Monica smashing the spider-Courtney is disgusting.

    And good lord, watching Nicki and Kacie b interviews is depressing. and Nicki comes off so desperate. Who is she to forgive Courtney? weird

  79. Natalie, Bravo, Bravo, couldn’t have said it any better!! Thank you for speaking out and speaking the truth! I hope each and every former bachelor/ette contestant took the time to read your blog, because they should be ashamed of theirselves!!!! The majority of them have bashed Courtney on their twitter/blogs each and every week, a long with many others. I’m ashmaed to say, I supported these same people, when the producers through them under the bus. I won’t name, names but they know who they are. How quickly they forget, what was done to them and what it’s like to be lied on and plastered on magazine covers nonstop.

    Her personality on the show was totally instructed by the producers in order to make the show ‘dramatic’.

    Comment by Chloe — March 8, 2012 @ 6:09 pm

  82. I am pretty sure Natalie gets paid every time someone posts a comment on here, so she is probably laughing all the way to the bank with all of the nasty comments on here. If you ask me, she is pretty damn smart for writing her blog in such a way that allows the haters and the lovers to all post comments. HAHA brilliant, Natalie.

    Comment by Ashley — March 8, 2012 @ 6:17 pm

  83. Very funny blog! I don’t get what the haters are so mad about? We all know they sit around on their lazy fat buts all day ripping apart the girls worse than any of us. You just put a few opinions in writing that are witty and hilarious and they fly off the handle. Oh well, that’s America. The haters in this comment section are the real hypocrites here. Natalie is an entertaining writer, and the amount of comments here prove it.

  85. Ep10 WTA Natalie, and other CR benchers STOP IT RIGHT NOW…. enabling CR’s behavior. That is the reason why our society is in mental meltdown. Her tears were “snap” no one is running up to hold me and tell me everything’s going to be o.k, sweety WE understand. The other girls were typical caddy socially acceptable behavior amongst friends/acquaintances who are attempting to recognize their and others behavior (except Sam). CR Starts EP 1 with first revelation “this is fierce competition” then, giving deep thought to “UT OH, IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT ME.” Where did they find all these “girls”? CR I must control my environment. Finally applying previous learned knowledge begins her Tactical procedure to stay on schedule/task. And, the next things we know her management skills prevail, as she begins kicking contestants/target off the train before, during and after every stop. In order to receive reward CR plays Victim to her superior (Ben. Her character ranges from brutal sneering facial expressions and violent words, to seizing your victims/superior’s arm to maintain erect. Let’s not forget her unjustifiable conniving remarks of how she is a woman and the others are “girls”. Wow is that the pot calling the kettle black? He has not empathy to anyone but herself. NARCISSIST CR is immature beyond imagination – not to say a person in their 20’s (21-29) is a master at adult responses, but hers are behaviorally imbalanced. Probably one of my favorite is one CR delivered numerous times; “See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya.” SO, SO, SO Middle school. I understand after further research in her earlier years – her personality and response to the outside community in her hometown — she has always had this elitist behavioral disorder. It also appears to be heredity, mirroring her mother’s biting comments about Ben. JUST WHO IN THE HELL DO THESE PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE??? I’d rather sit down with Donald Trump (who is definitely on my list of an economic bully) before I would entertain the thought of sharing any of the few minutes life has to offer with that gang. It must be noted that at the hometown visit –CR did not advise her parents of her national naked swimming expedition with Ben – NO, NO, NO not little don’t get too close if you want to keep your eyebrows, she choose her big sis (the victims escape goat) to enlighten her parents about the unknown guest in the sea. — oh, my, my, my little one. On a modeling or commercial shoot MORE constant than not, this GIRL and the cameras are on a closed set. She sees the entire world in her personal little fish bowl. She is offended that a bigger or more beautiful fish, much less a school enters HER waterways; and now it’s time to defend and attack. Sorry to say, I am NOT a forgiving person, life has taught me – all that does is set yourself up for disappointment. Because humans are designed to fail and if you learn from it you move on if not you find excuses. To any reader do not give CR a second thought, the minute you do is the minute you lost. She needs to BE isolated from society exactly like she stated in the show. She is also the youngest and most likely Daddy’s litl’ GIRL (Plus the fact that she is nearly identical to her mother). Understand when you let her out she will be the negative distracting stimuli with the ability to manipulate and apply physical violence. This disorder may be related to facial processing deficits in social and developmental disorders (SDD). She needs to see and professional. My motto: What goes around comes around. http://www.facebook.com/cybamed
    In addition, I was expecting Kacie to get out her crab claws and she did, possible a more subtle approach but none the less still attacking e.g. cancer. That being stated I am not clear on whether you follow ASTROLOGICAL signs or not but they are evident. Ben is sooooo the Virgo (Dr. Drew), I am raising one. He needs to find a Leo (Pres.Obama, Clinton, J. Lo,I could go on in entertainment), Capricorn (Michelle Obama). I personally will never ever have intimate contact with a Scorpio (Johnny Carson – how many wives was that???), I have been left in a death bed, deserted and left with no emotional attachment from him/they can set up the game but have no ability to follow through. The Bachelor is perfect for them, but they would do it once and say, been there done that and move on. They will hurt you so bad, yes you will want to die. Pieces will like but will and are the funniest of them all, very OCD (Casey Anthony, Mike from Dirty Jobs DISCOVERY). Sagittarius is extremely passionate many times will cheat as a result. These signs are what they are and you nor I can get away from them because they are the stars and until we die those stars will control our lives e.g. wind/air, fire, water, earth. The components are simple and innate characteristics are part of each persons DNA. I would appreciate your posting and requesting from ABC to post each contestant astro sign. Trust me if my daughter was not aware of the signs she would have wasted many hours of her precious life –she is a Virgo, grounded with a Leo 6 years strong (I have several with this pairing.

  86. Nat really looks pretty in that pic with Ryan P. from what I can tell :) Don’t usually see pics with you having waves in your hair.

    As you have pointed out here, and on Gossip with Getz, the girls’ reaction to Shawntel did further show that there is more than one “meanie” involved this season.

    I hope the Bach Franchise has an event soon where you can meet Courtney and share a glass of red with her. You would have to wait a year or so (after next week) before Courtney could go on Gossip with Getz, right?

    Comment by Lola — March 9, 2012 @ 8:46 am

    As for the schizophrenic commenters here, it’s clear you guys are all in need of one of Monica’s tampons. Oh, and thank you for your irrational comments. This season, every Friday, my roommates and I would have cocktail hour every Friday and review the cray cray comments and be in tears from laughter at how absolutely nuts you all are. So inadvertently, I love you guys too;)

  89. Tears of laughter over so many VERY personal negative comments??? That is just simply not the norm.
    If I was Natalie, I am sure I would be taking a second look at myself. Maybe even a 3rd and 4th look as something is definitely ‘off’

  90. Natalie good to see you can laugh at yourself but not good to see you think you are always right. Its good to be a mean girl? You fit into that Jesse and his clan really well , laughing at people and picking on them.Im sure you like taking the time ( wasting ) being on his whatever its called Smack Down or whatever. It seems like you all will never move on from the Bachelor/ette “family” as its called and reunions etc just like some people never get over their college life. OH well if you feel right and good about picking on and lauging about people on what they wear and say good for you . I like how you ALL on that show like to say this person is fame whore and on and on………. take a look in the mirror all of you move on already. Keep the cocktails flowing! Everyone is nuts but you and your friends … nice, I for one am not cray cray far from it, nor are the others who have an opinion other than yours

  93. Do you hear that sound? It’s the sound of Natalie and other BN Alum’s public images going down the toilet. I get it. People get invested in the show, caught up in the drama, want to dish and have others confirm or debate what their take on things are and hey,come on… can’t we take a joke? The problem for me is that I found myself crying for some stranger on a reality show that i was indifferent to before. Watch the show again but edit out all the scenes of Courtney,except the one’s Ben was there for. That’s all he saw. She took digs at Shawntel – the woman others were upset with because of the WAY she entered, and Emily – the woman who dissed C and who was vague with Ben and simply said C was “weird”. No specific examples were revealed and (if he has alot of female friends) he knows that none of us can say we have never done what Courtney has done. Yet he didn’t turn as much of a blind eye as we were lead to believe – he told her he felt that “under any circumstances it [was] messed up.” I’m not saying I think he’s great but that the public and media lashing he’s taken has been brutal. He’s been pummeled and pummeled and pummeled.If he and Courtney were teenagers one of them probably would have committed suicide by now. It’s gone to the extremes of hypocrisy, it’s overkill and leading the troops to battle and beat up season 16 newcomers have been the Bachelor FAMILY Bloggers because Ben and the women are DUMBER,UGLIER MORE AWKWARD, MORE LACKING IN FASHION SENSE, BORING, GULLIBLE, MORE SEXUALLY PROMISCUOUS, WORSE KISSERS AND CONVERSATIONALISTS, BITCHIER, COLDER, LESS FUNNY, MEANER AND FAKER than them. You were all exceptional when you were in their shoes!!!

    So in answer to your supporters’ question about what set us off? It was that last morally superior comment you made about calling your parents to pat them on the back for raising you to be a better person than ALL the women on Ben’s season. Keep chastising us for doing something as terrible as to stick up for some of YOUR own and we’ll be sure never to defend or support you. In fact we’ll be happy to provide you with more facts you don’t recognize about so yourself so you have an excuse to get drunk,laugh, respond and show your true self. You and Courtney girl. YOU….AND..COURTNEY.

  94. I think many here are a bit too hard on Natalie. She is just posting sarcasm, none of it is personal. Its a blog, and the bachelor is a reality TV show that is set up for sarcasm. We all like to laugh and make fun of actions or clothing or looks that real people do. it is human nature..if be this show or some other. A blog-funny recap is half the reason some of us watch this show..without the blogs and recaps I dont think I would still be watching this season. And I certainly would not be interested in next season with Emily without post blogs of Natalie’s type of pun.

OH for G*d’s SAKE, people!……THANk YOu, Thomas Knight!…..(for your post above…..helping me a bit with this nonsense!!)……i was gonna take the “LOW ROAD” and say, “STOP CUTTING your TABLETS in half, lady!”……(but after my mom suddenly died last year, out of the blue, REAL PROBLEM!, i am trying to take the “High ROAD” she always tried to get us to focus on!!!)……but for theLOVE of THE ALMIGHTy BLOG, (ok, i will do it just so you won’t’ be late for the small bus…SARCASM!!!!…….but a BLOG is” “a personal journal published on the world wide web, usually containing SARCASM, IRONY, EXPOSURE, WIT, HUMOR,, the OPINION of the WRITER!!!….the BLOGGER, (Nat GETZ!)….and ABOVE ALL…..Main Ingredient: SATIRE!……i mean, Natalie even included a photo of “Cheri Oteri” from SNL!…….(BEYOND FUNNY AS SH*t!)…….it is SATIRE, guys, c’mon!!!…..this whole thing, the Bachelor/ette, BLogs etc…are just a FUn Guilty pleasure EScape from the real world, (LIke my BIg Brother in STage 4 of Renal Cancer, being by his side every second, trying to explain this to two little children,…. watching a 6’2 man take 15 minutes just to get hoisted into a sling, just to go to the bathroom!…..)THAT IS A REAL PROBLEm, OK, THAT one can bitch about, but i WONT, it’s LIFE, it is just F’in LIFE!….. but Natalie GETz’s SATIRICAL take on HER F’in BLOG, is SOOOOO NOT the “HILL to die on!”………are we really gonna BITCH about every one of her words, and her OPINIONS….BUELLER???…….WTF!………i’m sorry Nat, didn’t mean to get all lit up this morning, but some of the dumb shit, that “Sets off some of your so called fans…..is WAAY to UNCOOL!…not in the mood today!….NOt enough coffee on the EAst Coast!…….SATIRE: the use of IRONY and SARCASM, in FOLLY!…..(FUN, SILLINESS!)……TOUNG in CHEEK, GRAIN of SALT!….boy, can i go on!………..GEEEEESH!………….as Ellen Says, Nat…..”let your Haters be your Motivators!!!”………..do NOT ever sTOP, YOU are MY ESCApe, and Have SOOOO MANY FANS that GET IT, BUt GOOD!……GET YOU!……..BAM! xoxox

  96. wow!!! Pamela are you ok? Take it easy. Looks like youre really worked up over alot of this. In a blog everyone does have the right to have a difference of opinion. All the caps you type makes it look like youre really angry and yelling. Hope youre ok. I think Natalie can speak for herself , I understand youre a supporter of hers, but dont take it all so personally. Get some rest. She is your escape? Your words were this is supposed to be a quilty pleasure… relax and take it easy…

    Not Jennifer S. I’m the one who posted that Ben was a cold booger on a paper plate. And he still is…..

  98. Last night’s episode of gossip with getz was so funny! Erica cracks me up. You all do! Job well done!

    Comment by Summer — March 14, 2012 @ 11:48 am

  99. So obvious Erica does not care for Ali. She talked about her again on G with Getz. Am thinkin’ Rose and Getz are just not the type Ali chooses to hang with. Makes sense to me.

  100. Pamela B is a BASKET case.

    Comment by Marie — March 15, 2012 @ 5:25 am

  101. So, let me see if I have this right. You have a blog, write somewhat fluffy recaps with no depth, then spend Friday nights laughing with your friends about the comments. How disrespectful to the people who take the time to sit and read your blog. That is really insulting, Natalie. You have a lot of growing up to do! I don’t know which is worse…Reality Steve, someone I used to read, but stopped due to his nastiness to his readers, or you, making fun of the people who read your blog. The difference is, you seem somewhat nice (he’s a true SOB), but have some respect for the people who support your blog!

    Comment by carina — March 16, 2012 @ 9:10 am

  102. I wasn’t going to comment on this blog anymore….but Carina…WOW. You say I’m disrespecting the people that support my blog? Learn how to read! I sent mad love to my supporters and people who actually respect me. It’s those of you who say idiotic comments and throw out irrational insults that I laugh at and OBVIOUSLY have zero respect for. Why on earth would I say something nice about the people who “take the time to sit and read my blog” if all they are doing are saying scary mean things and pretty much leaving me death threats? Carina, before you post a comment again, maybe you should look into things a little more. Don’t read reality steve, don’t read me, don’t even watch the show. I’m so sick and tired of all of the negative people out there. It’s funny for awhile, but then it makes me sad to think I have to raise my children in a world full of sick, hateful/hurtful people. Bummer.

    Comment by Natalie Getz — March 16, 2012 @ 11:55 am

  103. …….NOW i’m BUMMED!!!…….Natalie? “disrespectful?”…..REALLY????…….C’MON!!!.??? …..WHAT???….stay true to yourself, nat….this is exactly what i was saying to you in our private message…i was wondering how it is possible that, eventually, ALL the negativity and Hatred doesn’t get to you!….(even though MOST of your Comments are SO COOl and SO POSITIVE!!)……..because you are SOOO sWEET and SOO gENuinE, i kinda worried about the meanness getting to you eventually……..the truth is, most of these are the same exact people who have said the “meanest” things about “Courtney, Michelle Money” etc…”….but i can promise you, if they ever had the opportunity to meet any of the “Bachelor Family”…(in person)…..they would have nothing to say except, the “opposite” of everything they SAY behind their back/s/ behind a safe hidden keyboard!!……YOUR TRUE FANS KNOW you give NOTHING but “MAD LOVE”…and “MAD RESPECT” to your AUTHENTIC SUPPORTERS!….i wasn’t going to comment again, because i didn’t want to be called more names, myself, HOWEVER, when i see or feel you becoming discouraged by people who truly do NOT understand your humor, satire, and downright “silliness” i get CRAZED…we ALL know how i feel ABOUT BULLIES!!!……YOU are a “FASHION BLOGGER” for goodness sakes, with AMAZING ADVICE and Unbelievalbe insight on relationships, and bachelor/ette/pad interactions… and trust me, hunny, when you have your babies, you will NOT be surrounded by these negative people….you will be surrounded by your AWESOME FAmily and Wonderful FRIEnDS….and a FABULOUS MAn!…..so don’t be BuMMED, esp about that!!!…..keep it ALL separate, just like you told me!…..YOU are AMAZiNG, and i look forward to your “fashion blogs” more than anything…..along with your smart- allec take on the ridiculous situation at hand!….this is NOT “rocket science”…..it’s a DATING GAME, Dude!…..hang in there, WE ADORE YOU, Nat GETZ!………so blast away , at me, if you must, but back off on Natalie, if ya don’t “get her”…like she said, , DONT READ her!…it’s a BLog for goodness sake!…..”google the word!”……(it’s really just a simple opinion often with a twist of humor and satire)……..talk soon, my dear! …….YOU HANG iN THERE!………..xoxooxoxo Pam……..

  104. I has helped me drop 3 pant sizes and my appearance is substantially better. I’ve found that affected my tummy initially, then I could see the difference in my face from the mirror! I still have a ways to go but I’ve not had any problems with this product or service and come to feel very safe with it. I checked the ingredients, they all herbs and safe to use.

  105. Honestly, Natalie. Samantha reminds me of your friend Lauren Wanger on Jason Mesnick’s season. She definitely got the lack of ability to catch up with reality going on. Maybe you’ll like her when you meet her and I like her fashion sense by the way, not as much as Lindzi, Courtney, Casey S but she’s pretty decent. Yeah I agree, this season is full of mean girls and nutcases or the combination except probably Shawn Reynolds (You may say who?) She’s a single mom whom Ben booted out 2nd episode with absolutely no airtime. (Well Ben is quite controversial himself and he digs that type.) I saw her video intro and she seemed to not have the mean sass. Even Jennifer who seems classy and likeable is a bit too feisty and sassy.

    As far as the mean thing goes, I think the one woman who I haven’t seen having a negative bone in her body is Noelle Drake from Matt Grant’s season. I had a crush on her from the very beginning. She grinned and winked and I kinda melted. Steph from your season is kinda overrated and to be honest, she could say she’s 50 and I’d not say “wow, you actually look 15 or 16 years younger.”, unless I’m bullshitting. Yeah she’s nice, sweet, positive but I won’t say she’s the nicest person ever.

  106. Take it easy, people. Don’t be hypocritical. Seriously, on that show… is Megan Parris evil? Is Kalon McMahon evil? Is Natalie Getz evil? Is Jake Pavelka evil? Is Arie Luyendyk the most honorable man on earth? Puh-lease. It’s a desperate attempt of editing. Most of it has got to do with people bashing them. They’ve done nothing. Other people trashed them under the bus. Sadly, all you guys buy that shit…and enjoy your 15 minutes of hating for multiple times in a year. Is it wrong for anyone not to suck up at haters? What? You wanna be Jake Pavelka to Vienna Giraldi and his teenage hater? You gonna seriously “appreciate” them for talking trash at you? Or should you feel so bad about yourself, you go to repent at nearby church? WHat the fuck!? No, you mind-twisted freak… Haters are haters. You just don’t “try” to has anything much to do with haters. It’s a waste of time and energy. Even if you really appear too good to be true, some people are still gonna knock you down for being overrated. And you know what, that’s partly true but just by your “rating” alone, you’re being judged, people don’t really think for themselves. If everybody thinks this guy’s hot he’s hot. If everyone calls this girl a nutjob bitch, she’s a nutjob bitch. It’s pathetic. You don’t even concern taking all that bias, the negativity away so they may get to see things from a different angle. Like, look, you really don’t a lot about these people. You just don’t. Anybody who says “I’m a good judge of character.” has epic fails about 95% of the time so… don’t try to be a valid hater. Don’t focus on your 5% of success, you feel like it 200%. Your opinions are not gospel truth. Don’t take it bigger than what it is. You couldn’t and you shouldn’t.
