Another ‘Bachelorette’ Bombshell: Contestant Lincoln Adim Convicted Of Indecent Assault and Battery

Courtesy/ABC

Becca’s season of The Bachelorette has certainly gotten off to a murky start; thanks to some of the male contestants in the running who want that final rose from her.

News today came to light on contestant Lincoln Adim, the Boston-based account sales executive with the rock solid body and attitude to boot, that rubbed some of the other guys the wrong way in the first episode of the season.

Reality Steve who broke the story revealed Wednesday, that Adim had been convicted of indecent assault and battery last month and has to register as a sex offender.

E Online received a statement on the situation from the Suffolk Country District Attorney’s office in Massachusetts where it confirmed that in May, and a week before the new season premiered, that Adim was found guilty of groping and assaulting a woman on a harbor cruise ship in 2016.

In their statement, it related that Adim was sentenced to one year in a house of correction, with that term suspended for a two-year probationary period.  In addition, he was ordered to stay away from the victim and had to attend three AA meetings per week.

To make matters worse … by law he has to register as a sex offender.  The report goes on to say that if Lincoln complies with the judge’s orders, he will not have to serve out his term, but if he fails to comply with those orders or re-offends, he could be ordered to serve out the year in jail.

ABC has not commented on the legal situation, nor has Becca Kufrin.

Reality Steve revealed that he was told on Monday that Adim was in court.  He said that ‘Bachelor’ season 15 contestant, Ashley Spivey obtained the district attorney’s office’s statement for him. Spivey tweeted it as well.

Season 14 of The Bachelorette began filming in March and wrapped in mid-May.  As viewers have seen, going into the rose ceremony on the upcoming, June 18th episode, Adim is one of 17 men remaining.

News of Adim’s conviction comes on the heels of first impression rose winner, Garrett Yrigoyen, who made the news for “liking” offensive posts on Instagram targeting the trans community, and mocking a Parkland shooting survivor, among others.

Not impressed with a good number of the men for a variety of reasons. I would love to bring down the ego of Mr male model Jordan. He is way too in love with himself to leave room for anyone else. Lincoln had an air about him that felt like trouble and it seems to have panned out to be so. I like the current football player, the guy she had the one on one with Monday night and I like Colton I think his name is….former football player. This is most definitely not my favourite season. I’m not overly impressed with Becca.

Those women, ucky..

Whoring” Your Integrity and Losing Self-Respect
Pitting one guy against the other is nasty.
And any man that would want a woman that played him against other men I have no respect for him.
How can the man feel the winner when the woman he ‘won’ has also felt love for the others and had to decide which one she wanted.
She is whoring herself out and that was 1st said by guys around here.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
