Ellen Pompeo Rips Into ‘The Bachelor’ Creator And Defends Kelly Ripa For Her Comments

Things just got juicy from daytime to primetime after Kelly Ripa let her thoughts be known about the current ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown and the ‘Bachelor’ franchise during her morning show with Ryan Seacrest this week,

During a moment on the syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, Seacrest informed Ripa that the new ‘Bachelorette’ would be appearing on Thursday’s episode to which Ripa said: “You know how I feel about this show? It disgusts me. And I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how we feel ladies! We are too special to be arguing over a guy.”  She also called the audience out for watching this “gross, gross, show.”

Following her sentiments, The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to his Twitter account as did host and EP, Chris Harrison.  Fleiss said, “Easy, Kelly Ripa.  The Bachelor franchise pays for your salary.”  While Harrison tweeted: “Look out @KellyRipa⁩ is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.”

Next, none other than Grey’s Anatomy franchise star, Ellen Pompeo joined the fray.  She tweeted in defense of Ripa.  Pompeo wrote: “Okay @fleissmeister… that’s some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary. Also we don’t attack successful women on our network and men certainly cannot take credit for their success. Don’t get me started on your show cuz I’m a savage….

And in the end on Thursday’s installment of the entertainment talk show, Hannah Brown made her guest appearance and she weighed-in on the situation expressing that she didn’t follow the franchise at first, but being on the show has changed her mind. Ripa maintained her disgust for the series.

Brown went on to say to Ripa: “Like you, I didn’t really follow the show, wasn’t a big fan, but being part of the show, it’s not women fighting against each other.  Some of my best friends came from the show and were really supportive.”

So what do you think about what Ripa, Pompeo, Brown, Harrison and Fleiss had to share with each other on their Twitter war? Comment below.

THE BACHELORETTE: Hannah B. Gives One Gent The Boot; Then Hands Out First Impression Rose

The new season of The Bachelorette kicked-off on ABC Monday night, as America gets set to watch the former Miss Alabama, Hannah Brown look for love.  Will she succeed with the 30 suitors who showed up to try to “wow” her with the typical and cornball antics we come to expect from this reality-competition series?

As in previous seasons, the franchise also had some friends around to offer advice and support through the journey.  This time, there was a bit of espionage going down to try to lift the episode.  Hannah’s buds, Demi Burnett and Katie Morton (from the Colton Underwood season of The Bachelor where we first heard Hannah B. roar) tried to snuff out a contestant.  Demi revealed she was contacted on social media by someone telling her that one of Hannah’s potential suitors said that he would be back home with his girlfriend right after he was done with the show.

It was revealed to be the “duplicitous” Scott, a software sales executive, who earlier tried to impress Hannah by picking out what their dream house would look like.

Chris Harrison interrupted Hannah’s first cocktail party and brought her outside to the van, where Demi and Kate were staked out.  Then, Demi lowered the boom on Hannah and said,  “I read messages between the girlfriend and her friends of her talking about how they saw each other Monday before he came and they’re going to be together whenever this is all over, and they’re going to go on a trip together.”

Hannah stormed back into the mansion and demanded to talk with Scott alone.  She started with “I knew you were nervous coming in today … it might be because you have a girlfriend!”

Scott tried to deny the accusation.  Then sorta, kinda fessed up, but Hannah didn’t accept it stating, “There’s 29 other guys in there that I hope are here for the right reasons and don’t have other girls just waiting back at home.”   She eventually called out Scott saying:  “You are such a jerk! I’m done with this! There’s no reason for you to be here if you’re not serious. It’s time for you to head out.”

That left the door open for Luke Parker to take the opportunity to comfort Hannah; who seemed a bit wrecked over throwing a lying guy out on the first night of the show.  Later, Hannah gave Luke the first impression rose and the two shared a major lip-lock.  She previously kissed another guy earlier at the cocktail party tho.  Will Hannah be another kissing bandit?

After receiving the all-important first impression rose, Luke said in the confessionals. “My heart is literally exploding. Before I met Hannah, I knew that there was going to be something strong between us, and after tonight I can totally already see myself falling madly in love with her and spending the rest of my life with this girl.”

During the initial rose ceremony, Hannah sent seven guys home they included:  Joe, Matt Donald, Chasen, Hunter, Ryan, and Thomas.

So what did you think of Hannah’s choice to give the first impression rose to?  What did you think of her throwing Scott out of the competition? Comment below.

Colton Underwood Revealed As The Next ‘Bachelor’ For Season 23

So, here’s a twist.  Colton Underwood, who came in fourth during Becca Kufrin’s season as The Bachelorette has been named “The Bachelor” for the series upcoming new season.   The announcement was made on Tuesday’s morning edition of ABC’s Good Morning America.

Underwood, who publicly admitted he was still a virgin, while competing for Kufrin’s heart also dropped another bombshell during the season in that he casually dated former Bachelor contestant (and Kufrin’s good friend, no less) Tia Booth before signing on to the show.

Colton and Tia, who were both on Bachelor In Paradise had reconnected on the summer series, but broke up on last night’s episode.   He told Booth, “I just wanted us to work so band, and it’s just not there. You deserve somebody that’s going to be crazy about you every single day.”

A former NFL football player, Underwood told Michael Strahan (co-anchor, GMA)  on his first interview since becoming the new “Bachelor” where he is at with Tia now: “We are finally on the same page for the first time in our relationship and we are just good friends.”   Underwood is also famous for once dating Olympic gymnast, Aly Raisman.

“Bachelor Nation” seemed mightily behind Jason Tartick or Blake Hortsmann becoming the next “Bachelor” after both their hearts were broken by Kufrin by the end of The Bachelorette.  The men came in third and second, respectively.

Now, it’s Underwood’s turn to hand out the roses.  Reaction on social media has been mixed to the producers choice of Colton for the next ‘Bachelor’.

The new series leasing man says about his first two experiences in the franchise: “I think that’s one thing that I took pride in on both seasons, being true to who I am.  I think it took all of that to get to where I am now.”

Look for the upcoming season 23 of The Bachelor to air in 2019.

So, what do you think of the pick of Colton Underwood as the next ‘Bachelor’? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first check out his chat this morning on GMA when it was revealed that he will be handing out the next final rose.
