Ally Weinberg lives in LA with her husband, daughter, and two cats. She works in TV and sometimes writes things. She is passionate about kittens, pop-culture, and feminism.
It seems so naive now. In the days before the election, I sarcastically wrote on our fridge’s “to-do” calendar, “Move to Canada if Trump wins.” The silly remark was placed next to a reminder about voting and a chiropractor appointment. If I do a deep dive into my social media, I can still look at the photo and the joking comments of like-minded friends below it.
As a mom, I have discovered the secret to not losing my s***. It’s running away. Well, not really “running away,” so much as taking a sabbatical from being the President of Everything in my household. I am privileged enough to have a supportive partner and the funds to make it happen once or twice a year. But the true key to running away is to always do it with your friends. Ditch the mom guilt and do it if you can, ladies!
Last we left our conflicted Bachelorette, she was struggling to choose between Emotional Blake or Divorced Garrett. Who will get the final rose and who will, quite frankly, get crushed?
Last we left our lovelorn Minnesotan, Becca K. was making the tragically wrong decision to eliminate Jason and rightfully freaking out (#teamjason)!
Tonight we come to the age old tradition of gathering generically handsome men together and interrogating them about the right reasons. Yup, this is the Men Tell All episode!
There’s three men left and you know what that means…fantasy suites! But who will make it to the final two?
Last we left our Zamboni-riding Minnesotan, she was saying byeeeeee to Colton, who introduced her to his family, but not to his adorable dog. What gives, Colton? He’s headed to BiP with Tia, and we’re left with the three remaining bro-testants: Garrett, Blake, and good kisser Jason.
Last we left our conch-crazed Minnesotan, she was saying goodbye to my boyfriend Wills and some guy with long hair. Sorry Leo, but I think you were as surprised as we were that you lasted that long. Now we’re at that time honored Bach Nation tradition . . . Hometowns!
Last we left our spokeswoman for the city of Richmond, Becca Kufrin, had dispatched self-destructing Chris and ew-inducing Lincoln. Next, our Bachelorette and her bro-testants head to the Bahamas! Who will she send packing next and who will make it to the coveted hometowns?
We arrive in a tropical paradise and we see Becca aboard a boat, wind in her hair. It was 110 degrees where I live this weekend and I’m jealous. That water doesn’t even look real!
Becca sits down with Chris Harrison and sh...
Last we saw our favorite girl-next-door, Becca, she was leaving Chicken Guy to roast in the desert and declining to view Jordan’s portfolio, if you know what I mean. Chris received a last-minute reprieve, and, unfortunately, Lincoln was still with us.
Who gets a rose tonight and why in the world are we in Richmond, Virginia?
We start with sweeping views of Virginia. Becca tries to convince us that since “Virginia is for Lovers,” it’s the perfect place for them to visit.
Last we saw our lumberjack-loving Minnesotan, Becca was saying good riddance to Jean Blanc, who made an early exit. We lost several bro-testants we hardly knew, but we were still stuck with Lincoln and Jordan. Will one or both be leaving us tonight?
We arrive in Las Vegas. Becca is our Lady Luck, rolling the dice on love and gambling with her heart or whatever other Vegas cliche you can think of…
The contestants arrive at their Vegas hotel and “bro out” like aging frat boys reuniting at a bac...
When we last left the bro-testants, the rose ceremony was about to start! Let’s pour a glass of rosé and find out who is sent packing on this week’s Bachelorette!
It’s week four of The Bachelorette and I don’t know if more drama is happening on-screen or off. So far, the mansion has brought broken wrists, bloody faces, bunk bed mishaps, and pensive gentlemen.
The cocktail party continues and Blake goes straight to the kid question with Becca. How many and when can they get started? At one poi...
Last we left our Minnesotan and her bro-testants, there were tears, Lil Jon, shattered glass, and male models without pants. What will episode three on this journey to find Becca Kufrin’s forever love bring us?
It’s a rare rainy day in SoCal and everyone’s getting along with one another except Jordan and David, the Chicken Guy. And probably the participants of Framed PhotoGate, although we’ve apparently abandoned that story line this week. Chicken Guy is talking sh** about Jordan. Jordan call...
It’s episode two of The Bachelorette and I’m still over here, mourning the loss of Grocery Store Joe. But perhaps he’ll live another day in Bachelor Nation.
Let me pray to the Bach Gods and Chris Harrison that we’ll see this watermelon peddler again someday.
After the slaughter that was the first week’s rose ceremony, it is time to batten down the hatches and prepare ourselves for this week’s eliminations. Who has what it takes to go the distance and who is just a flash in the proverbial pan?...
The Bachelorette season 14 has finally arrived!
Who is here for the “right reasons?” Who is ready to embark on this journey to find “forever love” with Becca Kufrin? And who is this season’s Whaboom (hopefully no one)?
We’ve waited months for it, and finally, our reward for suffering through the human embodiment of a saltine cracker, otherwise known as Arie’s season, has arrived: Becca K. is our Bachelorette!
Becca experienced one of the most cringe-worthy and dramatic break-ups in history co...
