  • The Bachelor: Women Tell Nothing

    By Ilana Angel

    March 6, 2012 | 2:51 am

    This is my least favorite episode of every season.  I get annoyed by the constant recapping and pissed off that in a two hour show, there is only about 30 minutes of original footage, with a bunch of clips.  Then to make it even more painful, we are shown a Bachelor Whore Reunion in...

    In college, I wrote the same literature essay over and over again. Regardless of the novel, its plot or its country of origin, I found that I could always work up four pages on the subject of "Life vs. Death."

    By Tom Teicholz

    Just ask Zade.

    Zade Dirani, 26, is a...
