Weighing In On Bachelor in Paradise

When the news broke out about this controversy, did anyone think of “UnREAL?!” There are many sides to this story and by no means am I claiming that I know the right one nor do I know who we should believe. With that said, I do have some thoughts that have left me with unsettling feelings about this situation. It doesn’t have anything to do with DeMario and Corinne or the he said she said.

The production of this series involves many individuals. There are contestants – for which this entire series is based off of. There are many more people behind the scenes that make this show what it is. If Corinne really was unable to give her consent, then those that are behind the camera would have seen that and they have a duty to stand up and say something. If you are going to stand by and watch an act of sexual assault happen right before your eyes, you might as well be an accomplice.

I would be lying if I told you that watching this coming Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette didn’t have me feeling uneasy already. I hope that the television series will address what happened or that Chris Harrison will say something to address the controversy. At the very least, I am glad that Bachelor in Paradise has ceased production and for those that are upset about that, well – shame on you.

She Wore What: Pippa Middleton’s Wedding Day

It happened! Pippa Middleton is a married lady and the bride wore a couture Giles Deacon gown for her special day. I’m in love with this – the high neck, allover lace, and overall silhouette. This is such a modern take on classic and elegance. Pippa and Kate are two sisters with very good taste. As you may remember, after Kate wore her long-sleeved Alexander McQueen wedding dress, it became the next IT dress of wedding seasons for the next year. I definitely expect the same trend to follow with Pippa’s wedding style as well.

It’s good, but I still think Capitol Hill Block Party knocked it out of the park for me this week!

Andi Mack

We’ve always been pretty big on television and I won’t lie to you that watching TV while multi-tasking has stunted my productivity over the years, but I can’t help it! Since I’ve spent a lot of years living alone, I loved having the TV on as background noise. It made home feel a lot less quiet. I also just enjoyed the range of television shows that I’ve watched over the years. As I was reading the news today, I discovered a new series that will be coming to the Disney Channel. And yes, I’m on the verge of 27, but no one was more upset than me about the loss of “Girl Meets World.” I wrestled for a minute or two on whether or not to take 30 minutes of my time to watch the full first episode and I’m glad I did. Andi Mack is a newly 13-year old girl who is basically using this birthday the way we all did when we turned 13 – to come out of our shell a little bit more, take more risks, and figure out who she is. She’s got two best friends, a crush, her parents, and her cool older sister. Mini spoiler alert though, on her birthday, she discovers that her cool older sister is actually her mom and that her “mom” is actually her Grandma.

This is BIG for Disney channel, right?! I mean have they ever had a series like this? I don’t think so. More importantly, I love the fact that they are bringing more Asian actors and actresses into their original series. I don’t exactly know how the rest of the season will pan out, but I’m really rooting for this one and I find it to be pretty tasteful so far – at least for a pilot episode.

Starburst – All Pink Pack!

Let’s just say that there was never any doubt that the pink Starburst was clearly the best Starburst of all. As a result…what we’ve all known for a very long time… the makers are letting us have what we want for a limited time only – ALL PINK STARBURSTS. You can purchase them in this bag pack pictured above for $4 (a steal really) or a 12-pack of pink Starbursts for $1. How much does a regular Starburst pack even cost? I feel like, not that. Beginning in April, you’ll be able to get your all pink at retailers including Target, Walmart, and Amazon. Happy snacking!
