Verdict: Probably False. There's little reason the couple would keep their engagement a secret. They were publicly dating, and they were both grown adults able to make their own decisions. They were probably headed down that road and discussed...

Boston Rob Mariano Finally Named Sole 'Survivor' – Reality TV Highlights (May 15-21, 2011)

Rob Mariano,
After more than 100 days over 10 years spent roughing it in the jungles of the world, “Boston” Rob Mariano was finally named the sole “Survivor” on Sunday. Mariano earned all but one of the “Survivor: Redemption Island” jury votes (we still can’t believe Phillip received a vote) after giving an incredible final plea and answering jurors’ questions on the season finale. Winning the final immunity challenge solidified Rob’s spot in the Final 3, but it was his spot-on gameplay and near-perfect strategy that earned him the $1 million prize.

On Monday, Rob opened up to me about what he thought ...

Michelle Money,
“Bachelor” fans wait all season for the truth to spill out during each season’s Women Tell All special, and this season’s special was no exception; although, the truth that came out may not have been the truth viewers were expecting.

Yes, the women came down hard on Michelle Money for all the cruel things she said during the season, but it wasn’t really the things she said that bothered them; what bothered the women was that the Michelle that got to know in the house was NOTHING like the woman they saw in episodes. They felt confused by her two personalities and were beyond hurt that she w...

Last week’s hometown visits helped “The Bachelor” eliminate professional embalmer and future head of the funeral home, Shawntel N. Did anyone ever doubt that Brad would follow in the footsteps of previous “Bachelor (ette) s” (Jason Meznick and Ali Fedotowsky) who quickly ended their relationship with a contestant whose hometown visit included a brush with death (pet cemetery and taxidermy)? Cool as Shawntel was, she wasn’t making it out of the subsequent rose ceremony alive.

This week was a bit trickier to determine. We’ve seen Brad have his ups and downs with all three potential brides-t...

Mind games, intense competition, psychological drama – yeah, that’s about right.

On their date, Brad gets Chantal to fight past her fears and dance with him in a romantic underwater ballet. The Darren Aranofsky homage...
