Top 5 Love Lessons from “The Bachelorette” (Thailand Fantasy Suites)

  1. Beware of perfect morning hair.  You can’t have uninhibited sex if you’re worried about messing up your hair (Robby). A aerosol-sprayed, rock-solid coif in the early A.M. after a night of supposed boot-knocking betrays a depth of vanity that rivals Donald Drumpf’s. Intimacy includes being and looking vulnerable: messy hair, no makeup, the […]

Top 5 Love Lessons from “The Bachelorette” (Hometown Drama)

Was it because we sacrilegiously watched “The Bachelorette” sans wine for once, or was this episode particularly boring?

Top 5 Love Lessons from “The Bachelorette” (Chad Obliterates a Yam)

Last night’s episode of The Bachelorette could have (should have) just been the first group date in its entirety: a live storytelling event in front of an audience wherein each guy had to divulge some secret personal sex story.

Top 5 Love Lessons from “The Bachelorette” (JoJo’s First Dates)

There were a lot of lessons to be learned from JoJo’s first dates, so let’s dive right in: 1. Have a positive, can-do, lighthearted attitude like Wells. Is DJ Skellington ripped?
