If You Believe in Happily Ever After, Why Are You Watching Reality TV?
That is the question I ask myself all the time.
At this point I have had enough seaplanes, exotic locales, true confessions over wine, and hunky bachelors to last me for a long time.
No silly, not in my real life. In my fantasy life via Reality TV. Specifically The Bachelorette. Some question my intelligence for watching this garbage, but I enjoy the sheer cheesiness of it. Besides, where else could I armchair psychoanalyze people for kicks?
Ashley, the most emotionally needy and dare I say damaged bachelorette to come along in a while, had her happily ever after when she chose JP and he chose her back with a 4 carat Neil Lane engagement ring.
That is if you believe Reality TV can ever produce a happily ever after.
Already bets are starting on how long it will last.
They do seem to compliment each other well – they make a very cute couple and you can see the chemistry between them. He negates her insecurity and neediness by adoring her absolutely.
Sure I wish them well, but I know better after umpteen seasons of the Bachelor franchise. Will they end up like the one couple, Trista and Ryan – the only couple? You can’ t count Jason and Molly because she wasn’t picked, at first that is.
I hope Ashley finishes Dental School so she has a backup plan. I hope to see JP on a cheesecake Fireman Poster or Calendar someday soon – The Men in Construction – just JP and a hardhat.
