Normally right about now — an hour before the finale of “The Bachelor” — I’m pumped. Excited. I spend weeks poking gentle fun of the show but I love a happy ending as much as the next sap. I know that right around 9:55 p.m. I’m going to squee like a Justin Bieber fan, because I always do. Even for Jake and Vienna.
But now I’m (slightly) sad. Because according to Reality Steve’s latest spoilers from “The After the Final Rose” special — to be taken with a grain of salt — Brad Womack and his fiancee Emily Maynard have already broken up. Sure, they got back together, but that’s a bad sign. A bad, bad sign. I have The Fear.
It doesn’t help that Ashley Hebert is still the front-runner to be the Season 7 Bachelorette. Steve says she’s already shot some scenes for the season, which should start airing in late May, after “Dancing with the Stars.”
Or is this OK? I don’t know how to feel anymore, but I definitely don’t feel the way I did for Ali and Roberto. Normally I look forward to “The Bachelorette” much more than “The Bachelor” (25 guys >1 guy) but now I don’t know. Ashley The Exhausting does not inspire confidence.
