Did Brooks Breaking Des’ Heart On The Bachelorette Provide More Drama Than Soap Break-Ups?

On last night’s two hour edition of ABC’s The Bachelorette, the show finally perked up and brought the drama, when Brooks Forester (we love that name too, B&B take note!) broke the heart of this season’s bachelorette, Des Hartstock, setting the stage for an awkward second part season finale next week!

What made this so compelling is that this showed the realistic side, or as realistic as a reality show can get, when the competition is about dating, love, and commitment!  It was apparent that during the moments where Brooke tried to explain himself to Des that this was going to be very sad, especially when Des admitted that Brooks was the guy she was in love with from the others two guys still in contention! She even came forth with the words, “I love you” to him!

Couple this with the fact that Des had to keep her feelings for Brooks under wraps till the finale, or it would be game over for the season, if she had declared it any earlier!   But when all it said and done, we had Brooks in tears, Des in tears walking away from him and going to sit by herself on the docks, while he got driven away in a limo!  Des always seems to never get the man of her dreams.  It was very dramatic and touching.

Now that begs the question, where does the show go now, since Des later fessed up to the camera that she now wanted to go home?  But what about the two men still left in the running, Chris and Drew, who have no idea what just happened? According to an interview today on GMA with The Bachelorette host, Chris Harrison, the other two gents were secluded from each other during the final romantic getaway dates, and have no idea what transpired!

So if you caught last night’s The Bachelorette, were you moved to tears by Brooks breaking Des heart? Was it better than a soap opera break-up? What do you think will happen next week on the second part of the finale? Will Brooks return with an ephiphany? Will Des choose Chris or Drew? Or will she just say none of the above and go on with her life without a reality show beau?  Share your thoughts!

It would be great if Brooks comes back and she chooses one of the other guys and sends Brooks home. I wouldn’t trust him!!!!

Shows like these need to be cancelled. People wonder why relationships are in the state of disfunction, just watch crap TV like the Bachelor and Bachelorette to see why. No one falls in love anymore, they just want to make a mockery of it on “live” TV. Reality shows like this need to go away!!

the bachelorette and bachelor are terrible,,
I can not understand why people can whore themselves out to the public with their intimate self looking for love, it is so stupid to hang your laundry and heart out to the public..
Those people need to check their mental health..

It is whoring ones self out to the media..

Much of these shows arent even real…some come with scripts. Two people from my hometown appeared on reality shows and one admitted that some stuff you see is real and some is added by the producers. My nephews ex wife and her current husband went to one of those pawn shops featured on tv and said they were handing out scripts to those appearing on the shows.

Goes to show how gullible some people are.
The reality shows are not actually reality, they are simply phony trash …

watched all these years. How can you expect to find love after dating a few times and it being a contest to begin with. I’m over it this season. Des gets what she deserves.

I think that Brooks would be insane not to return to Des. He probably was insecure about not knowing that she really was in love with him and couldn’t admit to himself
that he really was in love with her thinking that he may not be the one. Des is heartbroken but Brooks is too. His family loves Des and he is realizing that he can’t live without her and will return to the show next week. He will be so sure that it is Des that he really loves.

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.
