Amy Schumer’s SNL Monologue

I didn’t get a chance to catch this when it aired last night, but this morning when I woke up all of the blogs were talking about Amy Schumer’s monologue. She was funny, as we all knew that she could be, but she also touched on a pretty serious topic as well which we really appreciated! Congrats to Amy on her first SNL!

Ari and Jimmy Do Impersonations

Ari has been a little bit idle lately (and so have we!) She appeared on Jimmy Fallon last night doing impersonations of Britney, Christina, and Celine and pretty much nailed it. Honestly, this was just another excuse to see her do the Celine impersonation I’m sure because she’s famous for it.

My Favorite Pair of Best Friends

The two of them doing the “Single Ladies” dance at the US Open. They’re really having a week and the world. is. loving. it.

Also, I typically love these “History of Rap” things and they’ve always been my favorite, but this is probably my least – why so many pauses and breaks in between?!

MTV’s Casting Call Page

Screen Shot 2015-09-07 at 10.43.57 PM

When you need a laugh or when you start to question whether or not your life is crumbling, just remember that MTV is looking for these people to make television shows about. I don’t even know what some of these things even mean.

Performance of the Day

I was actually woken up by this song sometime last week, but I’m actually more into it than I thought I would be. However, I feel like sometimes when I listen to it I can detect a little bit of sexual assaulty-ness?

“What do you mean? Oooh
When you nod your head yes

But you wanna say no
What do you mean? Heeey
When you don’t want me to move
But you tell me to go”

Wedding Mondays

I thought we were going to miss it! I was very very close to just closing my laptop and heading off to bed, but it doesn’t feel right to do that when you haven’t watched a single wedding video all week long and today is that day when you’re supposed to post one. And Jennie and Ashley are waiting ;) Aren’t you, girls?

Well, I have something to say about this wedding video. I don’t like this song. And I almost wanted to pass over it because of that, but then I reconsidered because I found another cheesy detail that I also thought that I would dislike, but then came to love – the fact that this couple had a red carpet at their wedding. However, when the bride and the groom are scriptwriters working in television and having their wedding take place on the CBS Studios Backlot, they can pretty much get away with anything. Really though, the details looked so good that I didn’t have a bad thing to say about it by the end of the video. In fact, I thought their reception set-up was absolute perfection. Need further proof?

We hope you enjoy Lauren and Andy’s wedding details and video as much as we did! See the rest at Green Wedding Shoes!

Our Next Bachelor

I mean as if we didn’t already know this by the end of the last season of The Bachelorette! What took them so long to announce it? Maybe because they didn’t want all of the people auditioning for the show to only be there because of Ben and wanted to still have that element of surprise. I bet that by doing this they eliminated some of the crazies. Ben Higgins was a favorite of mine throughout the last season, but I couldn’t really picture him with Kaitlyn. He reminded me of Catherine from Sean Lowe’s season though in which he kind of stayed under the radar, but was always very classy and a gentleman. It wasn’t until Katilyn had asked him if he was a virgin that Ben started to lighten up a litle bit and show a more humorous side to him. And then all of the girls died and were like Kaitlyn/Nick/Sean who?

Exactly. It’s Ben’s turn now and we can’t wait!

Performance of the Night

We couldn’t catch the Teen Choice Awards tonight because we just had to watch Bachelors in Paradise, but we’re pretty sure that this was the most adorable performance of the night. I can’t believe I got to see Little Mix perform last night alongside Taylor Swift!

Mr. Robot

As if I needed another show to watch. Every time I keep thinking about Mr. Robot, I end up writing “Mr. Robert.” What? I’m currently on episode 2, but I’m obsessed with this show and Rami Malek who is just superb and in some ways kind of a dream boat? We were all thinking it. Where did this guy come from? The last time I remembered seeing him in anything was Short Term 12 and I think he played a completely different character than he does now. Wow. Acting, right?! It’s amazing. A few of my co-workers have told me that they have stopped watching because they find the show to be too dark. But amongst Pretty Little Liars and Bachelors in Paradise, I could use a little dark every now and then.

In the same week, I read about the show’s reviews and was recommended to watch it by my co-worker who was only watching it because his wife was. I didn’t know much about the synopsis, but I knew Shiri Appleby was starring in it and I’ve loved her ever since Roswell (and of course her character in Girls.) Basically, it’s a fictional show that centers around characters that produce and run a reality dating series. Think The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but learning more about the people that pull the strings behind the scenes. At first, I felt a little silly watching it, but when you notice the parallels and since I’m currently watching The Bachelorette this season, it’s all pretty interesting. The show has been doing extremely well and it’s also on Lifetime which you wouldn’t think it would be. In some ways, I feel like it belongs on USA or something. The trailer above doesn’t do it justice, but take my word for it – I watched seven episodes in a row today while working.

Performance of the Day

After two days in a row of not blogging, I’m spending my “Friday” night getting caught up on everything I missed! Miguel performed “Coffee (F****** in the Morning) on GMA this week and it was so so good. I haven’t had a chance to listen to Miguel’s new album yet, but I’ve been waiting for this for a very long time since my friends got me hooked on Miguel back in January. Can’t wait to sit down and listen to it from start to finish.

That Last Bachelorette Episode

Since I happened to be in Seattle this past week, I was very lucky to be able to watch The Bachelorette’s most scandalous episode of the season with my 3 favorite girlfriends. Every week, we’ve all watched it from our own homes – me in California and the three of them seprately in Seattle all of us texting each other throughout the two hours for our reactions, but this time it was so much better to be in one living room together!

In case you missed it, Kaitlyn had the sex with Nick Viall on The Bachelorette. Obviously, nothing was shown, but audiences could definitely hear what went on behind closed doors. Someone should remind them to not only take the mics off, BUT to not leave the mics turned on either. In the past, getting to this stage in a relationship on the show usually happens within the last two episdoes at the fantasy suite when there are usually just three suitors left. In Kaitlyn’s case, she had 9 guys left vying for her love and a long road ahead of her. For reference, the last Bachelor/Bachelorette to be intimate before the fantasy suite was Juan Pablo and Claire.

At the end of the episode, I just had to ask the girls: so what did you think?

All of us agreed that what she did was wrong. It was wrong because there were still 9 guys left and essentially still very early on in the process. When you are down to just three contestants, it seems more okay because you are starting to get more serious and having that deeper connection. It doesn’t look great on Kaitlyn because it was on television for the whole world to see it. Do we feel that she is being treated unfairly though or being slut-shamed for what she did? Absolutely. From the very beginning of the season, we saw a preview of this clip as to what we could expect from Season 11 and it seemed like this was a very pivotal moment in Bachelor/Bachelorette history. When this happened to Juan Pablo, we didn’t know it was happening until it happened. Kaitlyn didn’t get the same treatment.

I met with a former professor the next day who also watches this show and engaged in this conversation with me as well. She asked me, “Where does Kaitlyn go from here? How does she redeem herself?”

I thought it was a great question because honestly – if I were in Kaitlyn’s shoes, I wouldn’t know what to do either. Part of why I’m disappointed in what Kaitlyn did was because now this sets an expectation for the other men. In their eyes, they might now feel that they have to sleep with Kaitlyn in order to feel like they’re ahead which puts Kaitlyn in a very uncomfortable position that no other woman really wants to see her have to be in. It feels a bit unfair though as I’m writing this because while she did make herself feel a little “easy” to Nick, she wasn’t doing something that was wrong with regards to dating because when most women date, intimacy is an important part of that. However, the girls and I decided that it is wrong when you are exclusively dating 9 men at the same time.

Readers, would love to hear your thoughts on this on this episode if you have any!
