Confession: I didn't even watch "The Bachelor" last night (too many DVR conflicts now that "The Voice" is back!) but I did monitor the situation in Panama so that I could report to other slackers that Blakeley Shea, the Charlotte/Rutherfordton contestant, was eliminated in last night's show.
Blakeley (left) ended up as one-half of the dreaded two-on-one date last night, which means two women leave for the date and only one woman returns. Reports indicate the date included Latin dancing and a weird "scrapbook of feelings" (made by a weepy Blakeley). Let's face it. Even a "VIP Waitress" from holy Charlotte cannot pull off a stalkery move like that, and Blakeley was dismissed. Blakeley was livid and stormed out in tears without speaking to bachelor Ben Flajnik.
In other local developments, Emily O'Brien, the Duke grad and UNC-Ch PhD student, tried to make amends with evil Courtney. There has been serious friction between the two ever since Emily (twice!) complained to Ben about Courtney being rude and insincere (she totally is, but she also loves to get naked around Ben so she's not going anywhere anytime soon).
Courtney accepted Emily's apology but also told her she will never forgive or respect her and they will never be friends. Courtney: classy as ever.
Three women exited last night: Blakeley, Jamie and Casey S.
So we're down to five now. Next week, Belize!
