I like to think of the Women Tell All episodes as the “Why He Just Wasn’t That Into You” episodes. All of these women get back together to rehash all of the drama they experienced and attack one another. Some even blame the other girls for why they were cut. My favorite quote was Ashley S.’s when she said that there is “nothing more unattractive than women who act like this”. No man wants to pair up with a drama queen. As Chris Harrison said, “It’s like a buffet”. ..a buffet of overly dramatic women all trying to figure out why they are still single and why Brad wasn’t interested in being with them. Michelle was pretty much attacked for all of the biting comments she made on the show. I’m not sure if they were “alligator tears” or for real. She certainly seemed to have a lot of guilt for leaving her daughter behind to be on the show, but she wasn’t really good at convincing the other girls that her comments were truly just jokes and that she loved them all. She cried a lot…I mean a lot. I think some of the women actually enjoyed seeing her cry. It must be sad to be that bitter. At the end of the day, she made the show much more entertaining to watch. I didn’t even recognize Ashley H. She went back to her natural color…which was apparently Clairol #53 Chestnut Brown. She still looked adorable, don’t get me wrong, but it was a bit drastic. She tried to apologize for not appreciating the precious time she and Brad had together and instead “taking it up with such insignificant things.” She wondered if things could have been different if she had done things differently. But when Brad came out, he refused to let her apologize and pointed out that maybe he just wasn’t the right guy for her, because he wasn’t able to make her feel confident enough to get past that and move on to the conversations that they really needed to have. I was excited to see the manscaper and the cougar with onion breath finally get it all out in the open. Melissa was truly sorry…Raichel was just sorry she got cut. I also really loved what Michelle said, “I don’t think it was as unique and special as I thought it was”. I think this is true of a lot of relationships. As women, I think we build things up in our minds, because we so badly want what we have to be unique and special and sometimes it really is not. We should all try to look around us and appreciate what we have and those who love us. I don’t think real love is such a mystery. When you find it…you just know. Brad certainly seems truly happy. For his sake, I hope that is true. We will all find out next week on the “most exciting”, “most dramatic”, “most emotional” Bachelor Finale ever…or at least that’s what I’m told.
