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.

25th Annual ESPYs Emotional Moments: Nassar Survivors, NFL Legend Jim Kelly, Marjory Stoneman Coaches Recognized

Wednesday night in Los Angeles, the 25th Annual ESPYs were handed out on live telecast on ABC celebrating the best moments in sports over the past year.  The evening also came with some truly emotional, heart-tugging moments about the human spirit with those receiving special honors.

The Jimmy V Award for Perseverance went to former Buffalo Bills quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly.  In a touching moment, the award was presented by two other QB Hall of Famers and Jim’s longtime friends, John Elway, and Dan Marino.

In 2013, Kelly, who led the Bills to four straight AFC championships, received devastating news that would change his life forever when he was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his jaw.  Although Kelly was told he was cancer-free that same year, the disease returned shortly thereafter.  After many grueling years of chemotherapy and radiation, Kelly announced his oral cancer had returned in March 2018.  As well, Kelly lost his beloved son, Hunter when the boy was only 8-years-old, but who became the longest survivor of Krabbe Leukodystrophy.  Accompanied on-stage by his two daughters, Kelly broke down after seeing his late son in the segment package just before his speech.  In Jim’s acceptance of the award, he ended with a key message: “Make a difference today, for someone who is fighting for their tomorrow.”

In recognition of their undisputed bravery, Jennifer Garner presented the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to the hundreds of athletes who spoke in court about the extensive abuse suffered while they were child and teenage athletes at the hands of former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University team doctor, Larry Nassar.

The group of victims, including Olympic gold medalist, Aly Raisman took to the stage after a gut-wrenching video introduction about their abuse. Three of Nassar’s victims, Raisman, Sarah Klein, and Tiffany Thomas Lopez, described what they endured, and how they were ignored by all the adults in the situation, when they reported their sexual abuse.

Klein, a former gymnast was the first girl abused by Nassar more than three decades ago.  She expressed: “Speaking up and speaking out is not easy. Telling our stories of abuse over and over and over again, in graphic detail, is not easy.  We’re sacrificing privacy and being judged and scrutinized, and it is painful, but it is time. ”  When Raisman spoke she related this empowering message: “You never healed me. You took advantage of our passions and our dreams. Imagine feeling like you have no power and no voice.  Well, you know what Larry, I have my power and my voice, and I will use them.”  The women received a standing ovation, while tears were seen throughout close-ups of those in attendance.

And, instead of the “Coach of the Year” award going to a professional or college coach, the ESPYs instead paid tribute to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School coaches: Aaron Feis, Scott Beigel and Chris Hixon who all lost their lives in the mass shooting at the Florida high school in February.  Family members and fellow coach Elliott Bonner took the stage and called for change with gun legislation, following a heart-tugging package featuring students who miss these men, and who spoke of what true heroes they were the day of the shooting; sacrificing themselves for the safety of the students.

Watch the three emotional moment below.  Let us know what touched you the most via the comment section below.
