Even before The Bachelor began its 18th season, the show’s new star Juan Pablo Galavis made headlines for all the wrong reasons. Prior to the premiere of The Bachelor, Galavis said he didn’t believe gays should appear on the show. He has apologized for the comment, both to the LGBT community as well as GLAAD, and recently stated he couldn’t be homophobic because his cousin is gay. (Uh, that’s not exactly how that works.)
However, since the show has begun, Galavis has proved he’s not quite the gentleman that viewers expect from The Bachelor. He often uses his daughter as an excuse to send women home for acting “un-ladylike” or setting a poor example. While his daughter's well being is ostensibly a good motivating factor, it was hypocritical when he told Renee he didn’t want his daughter to see him kissing so many women right before he turned around to swap spit with Nikki, Sharleen, and Clare. C’mon dude. Now you're just lying, and using your own child as a tool to do so.
The major event of the season that riled many viewers was how Galavis treated Clare after their midnight rendezvous in the ocean. When he told Clare a few days later — on camera — that he regretted the decision to meet her (and do whatever they did off camera), he seemed to blame her for manipulating him into the tryst. Unless I’m recalling high school sex ed class incorrectly, I’m pretty sure it takes two to tango.
But, as if Galavis couldn’t act any more like an uncivilized jerk, recent headlines detail his latest offscreen escapade: reportedly, Galavis sent a picture of himself fully nude to the lucky (if that’s really the word for it) lady he picked on The Bachelor — though we don’t know the winner yet, Galavis made his decision back in November. Galavis has officially hit an Anthony Weiner low. Yikes.
Although there have been some hated contestants on The Bachelor before — Jake Pavelka and Brad Womack to name a few — Galavis seems to be more despised than anyone else. While others have been able to redeem themselves, it seems unlikely that Galavis will be able to win back the public’s favor. He really is the worst Bachelor ever. Let’s hope The Bachelor doesn’t suffer.
The sinking of veteran entertainer Wayne Newton's yacht has been ruled an accident. The Las Vegas regular was on vacation when his 65-foot (19.8 metre) ship, named Rendezvous, was found at the bottom of Arizona's Temple Bar marina in October (13).
No passengers were onboard at the time of the incident, but National Park Service officials launched an investigation into the incident and they have now blamed a mechanical fault for the accident.
According to investigators, two hoses failed to drain water from a rear storage compartment, causing the 1996 vessel to sink.
This week's episode of Lost Girl is pretty great... despite introducing one of the lamest Fae by far. An opera-singing bird Fae? Otherwise, things are heating up. Bo and Lauren’s trip to the Dark Side is having repercussions throughout The Fae Team. This episode is also chock full of love connections.
Ianka (Lara Jean Chorostecki), an opera singer with a love for feathered outfits, escapes her owner. She runs into Bo at the Dal and reminds her of a deal they struck. What’s confusing is how Bo had access to Ianka when she was on the Terror Train. Ianka is an Alcanist, a bird Fae, who feeds by singing. Her song can make people relive memories. It seems like decent pre-planning by Train Bo even if this is, as we'd like to reiterate, the lamest Fae by far.
Apparently, Ianka has been a slave of two rival Fae groups. But she did have time to have a romantic relationship with Hale. However, she’s fallen in love with Marcus, the rival of her original owner. She hopes to escape with him, but he betrays her in hopes of using her to create a massacre with, no lie, her death song. She ends up killing Marcus, and dies herself because she’s just so frail. But, before she dies, she gives Bo a song that can help her remember.
Meanwhile, in a much more interesting storyline, Lauren is packing to leave her Light Fae apartment. Evony the Morrigan (Emmanuelle Vaugier) pops by to help… with pizza and beer. If that isn’t bizarre enough, she’s actually friendly. The two bond over Lauren’s love of Star Trek and over a pretty major gift. Evony gives Lauren some antique journals of famous scientists Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, and Charles Mayo. Does this mean Evony wants to be knocking Dark Fae boots with Lauren? They have a real connecting moment about their shared humanity. Then Lauren leans in and kisses her. But, Lauren pulls off some funky lip sticker that she used to capture Evony’s DNA. It’s bizarre to see the softer side of the Morrigan and a darker side of Lauren.
Bo is reconnecting with Dyson. But, apparently, now that she is Dark they cannot fraternize. That doesn’t stop them from having pretty kinky foreplay in the storeroom. In other news, Kenzi and Hale finally connect. It looks like everyone is pairing up. But will all of these couples survive the season?
Bo uses her gift from Ianka to jog her memory. She has a flashback and realizes she was marked with some crazy handprint by The Wanderer. She decides to get over her issues by getting freaky with Dyson. However, their romantic rendezvous is cut short when Bo’s mark returns. Then the Una Mens bust in to detain Dyson.
Despite a pretty mediocre storyline, a lot of major things happen this episode. Bo and Dyson can’t officially date so now they have to be together. Kenzi and Hale finally start dating. Lauren and the Morrigan have a romantic moment but now Lauren has major leverage over the Dark Fae. Does this mean she will become head of the Dark Fae?

Legend has it the founder of Vampire Vineyards got the idea for his novelty product line in 1985, after picking up a mysterious hitchhiker on a dark stretch of road.
The truth is actually more chilling. It was the brainchild of an entertainment attorney, Michael Machat. Within a few short years, Alice Cooper was a client and Selfridges was stocking the Algerian Syrah. Ah, show business.
The mediagenic blood of the vine has gotten more ink from InStyle, Spin and Maxim than Food and Wine, but no one appears to be starving. They now have a full array of offerings, from a Dracula Syrah to a Vampire Pinot, and a Chateau du Vampire Midnight Rendezvous that claims notes of dark chocolate, spiced fig and plum.
Hate the grape? There's Vampire Chocolate, Vampyre Vodka, a vampire energy drink and Vampire Coffee, featuring a Nocturnal French Roast guaranteed to keep you up all night.
A yacht owned by Las Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton has been found at the bottom of a marina. The veteran singer's 65-foot (19.8-metre) ship, named Rendezvous, sank stern-first in Lake Mead on Friday (18Oct13) while it was in a slip at Arizona's Temple Bar marina, according to National Park Service representative Christie Vanover.
There were no passengers on the boat at the time of the incident, which took place while Newton and his wife were on vacation outside of the U.S., reports The Associated Press.
Rapper Kendrick Lamar once tried to convince his mother that a girlfriend's stray bra was hers when she found it in her mini-van. The hip hop star used to sneak off for sex sessions in his mum's vehicle outside the family home in Compton, Los Angeles when he was a teenager, but his days as a roadside romeo took a hit when his backseat romps were discovered.
The Swimming Pools (Drank) hitmaker explains, "She went to the van and she found something. She placed it in the front seat and she said, 'Kendrick, come outside, I want you to get something'.
"I opened the passenger door and it was a bra. She was like, 'What is this?' and I was like, 'What do you think, it's yours'. She said, 'Boy, I ain't wore a size 36C in 20 years, this would never be mine...'"
But his mother's discovery didn't stop Lamar from using the mini-van as a racy rendezvous: "I had to start sneaking off a little bit more discreetly to go out and enjoy myself."
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield's recent performance of David Bowie's Space Oddity high above the earth brought back bad memories for French musician Jean Michel Jarre, who had hoped to feature tragic spaceman Ron Mcnair playing a saxophone solo at a gig in 1986. Jarre had planned to link up with McNair on board space shuttle Challenger as part of a show in Houston, Texas, and watched in horror as his pal and his crewmates perished when the craft disintegrated just 73 seconds after lift-off.
And Jarre reveals Hadfield's out-of-this-world tribute to Bowie, performed 230 miles (370 kilometres) above the planet on the International Space Station and posted online on 12 May (13), took him back to one of the worst days of his life.
He tells CelebrityAccess contributor Larry LeBlanc, "When I heard about the astronaut wanting to play music, obviously, it reminded me of this quite hard time... I could write a book around this concert in Houston.
"For the first time in its history, NASA wanted to be part of a cultural event. We had this idea of having a live link in space, and a song performed, not just as an engineer and a scientist, but also an artist playing saxophone live. It was really moving. Writing a piece of saxophone for NASA is quite challenging for a musician.
"Then we did it, and Ron was rehearsing until the last minute. (I said), 'OK, I'll give you a rendezvous in space,' which was a time to play together, with me in Houston, onstage over the skyline, and him in outer space.
"He said, 'Watch me on television for the take-off...' and we saw the tragedy. We were all in tears. I wanted to cancel the whole thing (concert). The astronauts in Houston said, 'You have to go on. You have to do this concert as a tribute to the astronauts.'"
Jenna's flirtations with new student Collin rapidly escalated this season on MTV's hit-comedy Awkward. With a hunk like Matty McKibben by Jenna's side, we thought our braid-enthusiast would be able to ignore these tempting urges. Unfortunately Jenna's lust got the better of her in this week's midseason finale of Awkward and by the end of the episode she plunged herself right onto Collin's lips — and broke all of our Matty-loving hearts.
So what's next for Jenna, Matty and Collin? We've got your first look at what's to come when Awkward returns in the Fall, but by the looks of this sneak peek trailer, Jenna has no intentions of staying true to her boo. When Season 3 returns this fall, fans will watch as Jenna relentlessly sneaks behind Matty's back for a make out sesh with Collin. And even though Jenna is fully aware that her scandalous behavior is not okay whatsoever, she continues to lock lips with Collin! If we're being honest, it's extremely frustrating to watch.
In addition, it seems like Jenna is not only headed for a major identity crisis — she's also getting a make over. With her new sexy hairdo Jenna has a rendezvous with the cops, smokes pot, dissapoints her family, and worst of all loses her best friends. Take a look at the trailer below to see the darker vibes of what's to come in Season 3 and watch Tamara puch Collin in the face!
It's going to be difficult having to wait until this Fall to watch Matty McKibben grace our TV screens each and every week, but let's try and be positive: While Jenna's off having a quickie with Collin, maybe you can steal Matty away.
