THE BACHELORETTE: Becca Receives Bombshell From Tia; At ‘Hometowns’ Parents Warn Her Not To Break Hearts … But She Does!

Courtesy/ABC

Week 8 of The Bachelorette featuring Becca Kufrin, included the all important ‘hometowns” where she “meets the parents” of the four men she has chosen to be in the running for the final rose.  They are Garrett, Blake, Colton, and Jason.

The set-up has: Garrett bringing home a woman to meet his family for the first time since his divorce, Blake revealing a haunting secret from his high school days, Jason trying to open himself up and catch up to the other guys with their professions of love, and Colton bringing home a woman for the first time to meet his family.

And on that .. here we go:  In Central California, we learn Garrett grew up in an agricultural family-owned business, as he drives Becca around in his lap on a tractor, which she likes! Next, Garrett and Becca meet up with his parents and siblings.  His older sister is frantically worried and in tears that he could get hurt again and she doesn’t want to see that happen.  Garrett’s dad and mom separately plead with Becca to not hurt Garrett as he was torn apart by his divorce.  The odd thing:  while everyone is concerned around him, Garrett just keeps smiling. Guess that his constant positive nature illustrates nothing much affects him? Who would love to see the guy have one meltdown to show he is human? Raise your hands!

Next, Becca journeys to Buffalo to enter a chicken wing eating contest with Jason.  Her favorite kisser (as she constantly reminds us how much she loves his kisses), also shows off his hockey prowess at the hockey rink, which kind of turns on Becca, we think?   When the duo next head to meet the family, Jason lets us know that he admires his brother’s relationship to his partner, and his parents long-lasting marriage.  When he sat down with his brother, Jason got a warning that you better move fast now and tell her how you feel, because time is fleeting.  With that, after they left the parent’s house, Jason admitted he is in love with Becca.  She smiles.  What can she do?  She can’t admit she does, or doesn’t at this point.  Awkward!

On to Blake and his family in Colorado.  Blake, who was a high school football star, takes Becca back to his old stomping grounds, where if you recall his mother also works and where she met his former teacher and coach.  But the main reason we are at his high school is that he reveals that a school shooting took place there, and it had impacted the person he has become. Becca takes that intel in, but not sure how much that changes anything in his favor, or not.  Next, Blake walks her to the school auditorium where a ton of people are watching and listening to a performance by Betty Who! So, who Betty, you ask? Becca’s favorite singer! Now, just how did Blake know that?

Last up is Colton, who also is from Colorado.  This was not easy for Becca.  Colton’s father came at her with if: she has discussed her previous relationship with Arie enough with his son.  He also questioned her about how she felt about Colton’s past with Tia, and the reveal that his son was virgin.  Guess all that could cause a girl to run the other way!  After the family get-together, Colton tells Becca he loves her.  So now, all four men have virtually said they “love” Becca.  What more could a girl ask for?!

Knowing she has to send one guy packing, she enlists her “Bachelor” gal pals:  Tia, Bekah, Sienne, Kendall and Caroline to consult on her decision.  But things take a turn when Tia asks to speak to Becca privately.  Alone, she tells Becca she still has feelings for Colton, and it makes her “sick” thinking of Becca with him/cut to the gals who share the gossip of Tia’s text messages that she has sent them saying she is “sick” over Colton and Becca.

At the rose ceremony, no surprise.  Colton is the odd man out.  He is devastated, but Becca feels she made the right choice.

So, would you have given Colton the boot at this juncture? Of the men remaining ,who do you think will be the final two vying for Becca’s heart? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Why are you reporting on this, the worst possible example of “soap” on television?!?!? I tried watching one season, and I didn’t make it through one episode! It was the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Tells The Men To Get Out If They Are There for the Wrong Reasons

So, let’s be real here.  Do you seriously think all of the men vying for Katie’s heart on this season’s The Bachelorette, or going onto a dating-reality show, are all just looking for love without realizing the fame, attention and instagram followers that will accrue due to their appearance on the long-running competition series? With that said, some men profess they are on the show searching for love, while others are on the show are there for “the wrong reasons” – i.e. searching for fame.

Katie Thurston had her fill of the “wrong reasons’ on Monday night’s episode of the series, after contestants Aaron and Cody went at it in a mud-wrestling match that turned dirtier than just rolling around in the muck.  Later, Katie pulls Aaron aside where he he reveals that he knows Cody from San Diego, and know he has a questionable character, especially from his social media postings.  Aaron believes Cody just came on to the show to become famous. When Katie then confronts Cody about this, he is pretty unfazed and matter-of-fact and emotionless.  Next up, she boots Cody from the show.

After Katie hits an emotional bottom, she gathers herself together for the evening’s cocktail chats and smooches, and as she is feeling good again, Karl decides to confuse her and tells her that their may be other men in the house who are there for the “wrong reasons”. That prompts Katie to have her episode ‘drop the mic’ moment where she tells the guys that ,”if they are not here for the right reasons to get the ‘f***” out!”  The men are pissed at Karl for stirring things up with nothing to back up his accusations with and Katie is left (as we fade to black) in a puddle of tears.

BUT, before that there were some other watershed moments within the episode. During her one-on-one ‘wilderness date’ with Greg, Katie opened up to him about the death of her father.  Later, when they sat down for their evening date, Greg revealed his father died, and then it was his turn to be overcome, revealing how difficult it was to leave his mom, who was still grieving to come be a part of The Bachelorette season, and to vie for Katie’s heart. But these two clearly have a very strong connection leading people to wonder if Greg will get the final rose.

Earlier, during the awkward – “prove to Katie how sexy you are in bed, or how you will take care of her in bed” – or something like that, Mike the virgin cried during his testimonials as to how he would get up in front of her and the other men with his presentation when he is a virgin.  Mike decided to go with the honest approach and wrote a poem for Katie about how he would love her while basically admitting he was a virgin, as she sat on the bed on the stage with him. He won the award in the sex competition.  OK? OK!

So, who do you think is the frontrunner for Katie’s heart? Is anyone on this show there to truly fall-in-love and get engaged??? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!
