Revisiting The Bachelorette

Over the weekend, I went to the Onion Comedy & Arts Festival, and one of the many highlights was the live version of Bitch Sesh, the podcast where Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider diss on all things Real Housewives. It was so much fun, I wondered why I don’t I get together with my girlfriends once a week and watch reality TV anymore? It used to be a focal point of my social life, back in my twenties. So last night, I met with some friends and some sparkling and/or pink wine to watch The Bachelorette. It was a total blast, mostly because this season’s Bachelorette, Becca, is so magnificent. The guys frankly are unimpressive in comparison, much like UnREAL’s subpar list of suitors this season. Still, that made it more fun to read everyone jumping on them on Twitter the next day, especially Jordan, the male model who mentions he’s a model every .5 seconds. So I’m in with my friends to watch to the very end on Monday nights, even though I am as clueless as Becca right now as to who will finally win her heart. Maybe Jean Blanc? [Gwen Ihnat]

I’m shamelessly into astrology—Pisces sun, Taurus moon here—and I’ve recently fallen in love with the Co-Star astrology app. It sends me daily horoscope updates and you can also link to your friends who have the app to learn more about how your two signs interact. The app’s Instagram account rocks, too. [Kate Bernot]

Heinz want to rename Salad Cream as Sandwich Cream which sounds like Sandwich Spread without the veggie bits. Heresy!
