Producers Reveal How ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Will Work

Cast 2014

“You’d look great crying in the back of a limo!”

We are only a few weeks away from the premiere of Bachelor in Paradise, which is sure to be the can’t-miss hot mess of the summer!  ABC released a few details a while back about the new show, as well as a partial cast list, but in a new press release, the network has revealed just how this trainwreck will work!

From the sound of it, ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ will be quite the self-esteem-crushing experience for its 25 contestants! According to the press release, ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ will begin with 14 former contestants (all of which left their respective seasons “broken-hearted,” of course). However, it will not be the expected 7 male/7 female ratio arriving in Tulum, Mexico. Instead, it will be eight women and six men. In addition to setting up for potential hot tub threesomes, this ratio also helps with the show’s first twist.

“At the first rose ceremony, the six men are given a rose to hand out to a woman they’d like to spend more time getting to know in paradise,” the press release reads. “With an uneven number of men and women in the group, the two women left without roses are immediately sent home heartbroken.” (Heartbroken–and crying in the back of a limo, fingers crossed!)

Another ‘Sister Wives’ Baby? Kody Brown Hints That Wife Robyn is Pregnant Again


“Back to maternity wear!”

The Ashley is convinced the producers of Sister Wives are just cruel people. Last night’s season finale left us all in suspense, with fourth wife Robyn Brown making a huge deal about having a “big announcement” to make. Fans eagerly waited as Robyn prepared to spill the secret to her family, only to have the announcement cut off to create the ultimate cliffhanger for next season.

Of course, everyone assumes that Robyn’s “secret” is baby-related. (Raise your hand if you were secretly hoping Robyn’s “secret” was that she suddenly realized what a tool her husband, Kody, is and that she was leaving because she was tired of watching Meri cry?)

‘Teen Mom 2′ Season 5B Episode 1 Recap: Baby Boys & Breaking Makeup Laws

Teen Mom 2 Kaiser

“We’re back…with more babies!”

Just when you thought you had said your final goodbyes to the girls of Teen Mom 2, the reality TV gods (and the MTV execs that realized what a goldmine this sh*tshow is) have decided to gift us with an entirely new season! While they aren’t calling this Season 6 (for reasons The Ashley explained a while back), that’s essentially what it is, with a bunch of new episodes that follow the lives of Chelsea Houska, Kail Lowry, Leah Calvert and Jenelle Evans.

Anyway, let’s get started. The faster we blow through Leah, Kail and Chelsea’s parts, the faster we get to Babs!

South Dakota

Bets on how long it will take Adam to crash his motorcycle right through the front of this place?

The episode starts off with a quick recap of last season’s drama. We start off with Chelsea, who tells us that she was able to get a loan to buy a house. I’m sorry, whaaaat? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are endless banks that are just lining up to loan a pile of money to a single young girl who didn’t have a job until about a month ago, but WTF?

Jillian Michaels Reveals Real Reason She Left ‘The Biggest Loser’

Yelling 2014

“I swear I’m a nice person!”

Jillian Michaels says she isn’t the mean, drill-sergeant-like person that fans of The Biggest Loser think she is. In a new interview with People, Jillian reveals that she was tired of being edited to look like a bully, and that contributed to her leaving the show after last season.

“Millions of people have this warped negative perception of me,” she told the magazine. “In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love. [But in recent episodes] you saw none of the relationships, none of the bonds that I build with my clients.”

‘Teen Mom’ Stars Raise Over $2,000 For Little Girl with Cancer

Teen Mom Amie

The girls from the Teen Mom franchise have gotten a bad rap over the years. While some of the franchise’s stars have chosen to use the fame that the show has garnered them to promote less-than-positive activities, some of the girls are doing their best to make a difference. (It’s nice to write about the positive stuff every once in a while!)

Last weekend, Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra teamed up with Teen Mom 2 stars Kail Lowry and Javi Marroquin to put on a charity event that raised nearly $2,500 for a little girl battling a rare form of cancer.

The ‘Teen Mom’ crew teamed up with the charity organization The LinkFund to host a fan meet-and-greet event in Brighton, Michigan, on July 13. This was very close to the hometown of Amelie “Amie” Strzalkowski, a three-year-old that has been fighting a malignant Medulloblastoma brain tumor for years and is currently undergoing treatment to help her beat the disease.  The event included activities put together by the organization Mom2Mom, as well as the fan meet-and-greet and signings of Kail’s book, Pride Over Pity. (All proceeds from that day’s books sales were donated to Amie.)

The event ended up raising almost $2,500, and was more successful than anyone expected!

“Way more people came than we all thought,” Kail told The Ashley in an exclusive interview after the event. “As much as it hurts my heart that Amie and her family have been going through this I feel so thankful to be able to do something like this to help her–and hopefully more families in the future–out.”

“19 Kids & Counting” By the Numbers

19 KIDS & COUNTING 5- ADVERTISING PHOTOSThe eight season of TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting finished airing last month and, while the network has not officially confirmed that the show will continue for a ninth season, it’s almost guaranteed given the amount of attention the wedding of Duggar daughter Jill  garnered last month. Jill confirmed in an Instagram video that her wedding was, indeed, filmed and will be shown to viewers at some point.

Anyway, viewers seem to be fascinated by this show, and for good reason. With 19 children, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are certainly not the typical parents we see on reality shows. Since the show began in 2008, we have seen its name changed from ’17 Kids and Counting’ to ’18 Kids and Counting’ as the Duggar family grew.

The Ashley is fascinated with the family as well, so she has decided to break down the show by only using numbers.

So here, The Ashley brings you…’19 Kids and Counting: By the Numbers.”
