  • The Bachelorette Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    June 14, 2013 | 9:14 pm

    I cannot stop watching this show, even though I think it is total crap.  I do not believe it works anymore because people use it to get famous, not find love.  I find that I laugh at it more than I find it interesting and this batch of men is just not that appealing.  Des is a...

  • The Bachelor Double Blog

    By Ilana Angel

    February 6, 2013 | 8:07 am

    I have been complaining for a very long time that this show does not need to be 2 hours long each week.  It is simply painful to sit through so much crap, and blogging it is near impossible.  It is only through the constant support of my friend Merlot that I am able to do it.  This...

  • The Bachelor is Back

    By Ilana Angel

    January 8, 2013 | 7:15 am

    I love this show and have been waiting for it to come back.  I watch with hope as love is searched for.  In watching the first episode of Sean’s turn as the Bachelor, I find myself not caring about it at all.  This show moves slowly, is scripted by what I assume is teenage girls,...

  • The Bachelorette Nightmare Ends

    By Ilana Angel

    July 23, 2012 | 9:04 pm

    I love this show and no matter how hard I try to not get sucked in, I always do.  This was, according to the insanely ridiculous Chris Harrison, the most dramatic, surprising and emotional season ever.  The thing is, it’s never that dramatic, surprising or emotional.  Harrison...

  • The Bachelorette Men Tell All Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    July 16, 2012 | 11:29 pm

    This episode comes every season and I have yet to see the point.  What is it with The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise that makes them want to recap every single thing?  There are some funny moments I suppose, but in the end I would be perfectly fine without the tell all specials.

  • The Bachelorette is Crawling to the Finish

    By Ilana Angel

    July 11, 2012 | 8:37 pm

    I got a few emails this week telling me I was being too harsh in terms of Chris Harrison.  I don’t mean to be and so I am sorry.  I will no longer talk about the fact that he is not needed on this show.  I will also not make a big deal about the fact that it is creepy for him to be...

  • The Bachelorette Recap – Hometown Dates

    By Ilana Angel

    July 3, 2012 | 6:36 pm

    We are back in the States, which is both good and bad.  Good because it means we are close to the end, and bad because it means we have to sit through a lot of recapping.  Emily needs to reflect on all her travels and the four men she has left.  I’m not big on reality television...

  • The Bachelorette in Prague

    By Ilana Angel

    June 29, 2012 | 8:33 pm

    Emily and the remaining men are in Prague this week. I think of all the seasons of both the Bachelor and Bachelorette, the locations Emily has been to are my favorite.  I have loved everywhere they have gone.  Prague is beautiful and within the first minute of the show the view is...

  • The Bachelorette is Starting to Bore Me

    By Ilana Angel

    June 19, 2012 | 8:15 pm

    I love this show and I love Emily but I am starting to lose interest in the whole thing.  It is moving very slowly, Emily is sweet but wearing thin, and I’m not sure I see her with any of the men she has left.  There are a couple of great men, but I’m not seeing the chemistry she...

  • Bachelorette Emily in London

    By Ilana Angel

    June 12, 2012 | 1:10 am

    Emily and her daughter are in London, which I am excited about.  Not the show as much as the city.  It is my favorite city in the world, the birthplace of my fabulous boyfriend, and where I hope to retire.  It will be a fun week full of beautiful scenery and embarrassing American...

  • The Bachelorette in Bermuda

    By Ilana Angel

    June 5, 2012 | 8:59 am

    I was certain I would be sick of Emily by now but I love her and think she is fabulous.  The men are not that great which is a drag, but it only takes one good one and she has that.  She looks great and even though she is a lady, we see she is going to drop an F Bomb next week so...

  • The Bachelorette Looks Great in a Harness

    By Ilana Angel

    June 2, 2012 | 2:45 pm


    Let me begin by saying how sorry I am this is so late in getting posted!  I got a kick out of all the emails and nudges to get this puppy up.  I promise that starting this week I will post on Monday nights after the show.  Your loyalty to my Bachelorette recaps is appreciated and...

  • The Bachelorette - Week 2 Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    May 22, 2012 | 12:42 am

    It’s week two and again, just five minutes in, I am totally into it.  Emily is beautiful and that we are in Charlotte, not Los Angeles makes it better.  We see Emily with her daughter and we are reminded that this is, on some level, real.  She would not involve little Ricky if she...

  • The Bachelorette is Back and Surprisingly Good

    By Ilana Angel

    May 20, 2012 | 10:22 pm

    I love the Bachelor/Bachelorette series.  By love of course I mean I am obsessed with it and the worse it becomes, Ashley, the more I want to blog about it.  I am a true romantic and believe love can be found for everyone. By everyone of course I mean everyone who is not on this...

  • The Bachelor – Hometown Dates Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    February 22, 2012 | 9:28 am

    We are hitting the home stretch and as it is every season around this time, I am reaching my breaking point.  I love this show so much that I can’t stand that it’s almost over.  By love it of course I mean it is total crap and I am counting down the minutes until it is finally...

  • The Bachelor – Shocking!

    By Ilana Angel

    January 31, 2012 | 9:08 am

    I joke a lot about needing to have a glass of wine to be able to sit through these reality shows, and for the most part that is true.  A nice glass of red makes the show more enjoyable.  The problem is that with every uncomfortable moment, I tend to sip which means I am sloshed by...

  • How To Throw an Awesome Bachelorette Party

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    January 20, 2012 | 11:27 am

    Being late twenties, means that bachelorette parties are a regular part of your social calendar. The problem is, most bachelorette parties SUCK. And not just a little. They’re often boring, uninspired, unoriginal, expensive, lame and there’s nothing do to but drink and regret...
  • The Bachelor Pad Ends with Michael as Both a Mensch and a Schmuck

    By Ilana Angel

    September 13, 2011 | 6:43 pm

    I am sad to see this show end.  It is mindless fun that highlights everything that is wrong with reality television.  This is the best part of the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise and I look forward to it coming back next summer.  That is the most pathetic thing I have ever said.  I...

  • Bachelor Pad:  Melissa Needs a Bunny & a Stove, Not a Rose

    By Ilana Angel

    August 30, 2011 | 1:32 am

    It’s Monday night and that means it’s Bachelor Pad night.  Let the blogging begin!  We start off with Jake getting the boot, which we knew was coming, but still, you have to wonder how dumb these people are that they do not vote off Casey and Vienna.  The power couples always...

  • Bachelor Pad: Casey Sings, Melissa Implodes & Jake Makes Out With a Girl!

    By Ilana Angel

    August 23, 2011 | 1:53 am

    I love this show.  Love it.  Love.  Love this show.  Seriously. Love it.  This week was brilliant.  We start off with everyone talking about Melissa and the fact that she is insane.  This is a woman who is unstable and needs to be medicated.  She looks like a meth addict, has...

  • The Bachelor Pad:  Blake is the New Bentley & Ames is Prince Charming

    By Ilana Angel

    August 16, 2011 | 8:55 am

    This show is fabulous.  There is no point in denying it, or trying to lie about it.  It is really very entertaining, the people on it are insane, and it would not be nearly as good without Jake and Vienna.  One might assume the people on this show are watching themselves at home and...

  • Bachelorette Finale: Ashley & JP Lose, While Ben Goes Out a Winner

    By Ilana Angel

    August 2, 2011 | 12:57 am

    The Bachelorette is finally over for the season. Thank God.  I seriously don’t think I would have lasted through one more week.  However, I’m about to watch three hours of hell and I’m oddly exited.  I have a mojito on hand, with a bottle of wine as back up, so let the train...

  • Ridiculous Bachelorette Ashley Steals Two More Hours From Our Lives

    By Ilana Angel

    August 1, 2011 | 12:25 am

    “The Men Tell All” special aired on Sunday night as an appetizer to the main dish, which is the finale on Monday.  It is sad that ABC dragged this out for four hours when the whole thing, both the men spilling the beans and the final rose, could have been done in an hour.  The...

  • The Bachelorette Needs to Wash Her Hair, Floss, & Stop Talking

    By Ilana Angel

    July 26, 2011 | 10:54 am

    We are in Fiji with Ashley, which is a perfect combination of heaven and hell. Fiji is heaven on earth, and time spent with Ashley feels like I am in hell. She arrives to the resort, with her unfortunate walk, in horrible shoes, and once again, unwashed hair.  She is talking and my...

  • The Bachelorette Scratches her Head and Picks her Teeth Across America

    By Ilana Angel

    July 19, 2011 | 9:17 am

    The end is near!  We are almost done with Ashley the Bachelorette and I for one am really excited.  I predict that whomever she is with, is not who she will marry, and that after the final rose, she will cry and scratch herself out of our minds, and we’ll quickly be done with her....

  • Taking Matchmaking Up a Notch!

    By Julia Bendis

    June 28, 2011 | 11:41 am

    I am trying something new here, and taking my Matchmaking to a new level a little bit.  I will be posting pictures and information of my singles on here.  If you are interested to get in touch with them, put a comment or send an email to me with your information and I will get you in...

  • If Admission is Recovery: My Name is Ilana & I Hate Bachelorette Ashley

    By Ilana Angel

    June 27, 2011 | 11:04 pm

    To be clear, I don’t hate her.  Hate is too harsh and I don’t know her.  I can say however, that the person we are seeing on television, and reading interviews with, makes me want to push her down a flight of stairs.  I wouldn’t want anything bad to happen of course.  Maybe...

  • Ashley the Bachelorette Makes Me Want to Jab My Eyes Out With a Fork

    By Ilana Angel

    June 20, 2011 | 11:58 pm

    It’s Monday night, which means I am home with a bottle of wine, questioning my sanity as I watch the dumbest show on television.  I seriously need help because I cannot stop watching this crap fest and find myself increasingly obsessed with how bowlegged Ashley is.  I’m also...

    August 31, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    My friend Nanea is breaking up with singlehood, and my girls and I are ready to help. Best friends since UCLA, we throw Nanea a wild bachelorette party weekend in NYC.

    My group takes a bite out of the big apple. We shop uptown, dine downtown, theater on Broadway, picnic in Central...

    Your best friend is soon to wed. You're in charge of the prenuptial ladies fete but your buddy is an iconoclast and so are you. If you're looking for bachelorette parties that score points for originality, you might consider these unusual substitutes.
