After a season of dreading basically every single episode, I was actually giddy with anticipation about The Women Tell All.
Bless My Heart.
WHAT A LETDOWN.
I mean, were you guys as bored as I was?
Nobody gave me much of anything to work with, and I’m having to dig really deep to find the funny.
And I’m sad to report I’m not sure I ever did…find the funny that is.
So please, if you have any funny observations, DO SHARE.
Before the show gets started, Sean and Catherine come out for a quick little visit.
And Catherine is ROCKIN’ SOME BANGS.
She’s DARLING with the bangs.
In fact, she makes me want bangs.
I have bangs.
She makes me glad I have bangs.
Harrison brings up the wedding night, and Catherine said “it was very romantic, there were rose petals, we were looking at each others rings…”
Sean interrupted and said “FIREWORKS!”
Well, Catherine didn’t take a 1/2 a beat before she said “QUICK FIREWORKS.”
Sean was a GREAT sport about that, and I thought they just looked really cute and happy together.
After Sean and Catherine, there was a deal with Harrison and Huhwahn doing a little thing with Miss Piggy and Kermit.
Don’t ask me why, I have no idea.
I never did and I still don’t like the muppets.
Actually, it’s mainly Miss Piggy that I don’t like. That pig pushes my buttons.
Kat was tan. REALLY tan. And she likes to talk. A lot.
And she’s doing this thing with her hair that Lori from Shark Tank does.
Like the hair is severely swooped TO ONE SIDE ONLY and stays put over 1 shoulder.
Is it fastened somehow with a barrette?
Do styling products make it stay put?
I’m confused by it.
I was SUPER impressed with Sharleen, and Mama.
The Dog Lover also likes to talk. A lot.
Several of the women took issue with the fact that Huhwahn called Mama and Cassandra his “special ones” since they had children.
Several of the other girls were all,
“I mean, I don’t have a child, but why am I not special?”
“I want to be special.”
“I left stuff at home too.”
“I want to be special.”
“Why didn’t you think I was special?”
“I want to be special.”
IT’S NOT THE SAME THING!
You leaving a job IS NOT THE SAME THING as a mother leaving her child.
And he wasn’t saying they were more special than you, he was saying that he was going to give them special consideration and make sure he didn’t keep them longer than necessary BECAUSE HE DIDN’T FEEL IT WAS FAIR TO KEEP THEM AWAY FROM THEIR CHILDREN.
Some girl that was kicked off the first show still wanted answers for the fact that she felt like she had been wronged.
There were 15 girls there, and 13 of them proved the following saying:
I actually liked Huhwahn MORE by the end of the night that I did when the episode started, and I was NOT expecting that.
One more thing before we start the show, my greatest disappointment from last night was the fact that
MY MAN, CHRIS HARRISON, didn’t get a chance to shine.
I always love Chris, but I’ve said it before, I love him THE MOST on Women Tell All specials.
It’s typically where he does his finest work.
He asks the questions we all want answers to, but he does it in a completely friendly and non-judgmental way (even though it is totally obvious that he is judging). It’s genius.
I’m telling you, the entire episode was just kind of BLEH.
Not even Harrison could turn it around.
Right out of the box, their little fannies had barely even hit the stools, and they were all doggin’ Huhwahn HARD.
They were all taking over each other, and it was incredibly annoying.
And I didn’t feel like anything they were saying was valid.
I mean, I was never Huhwahn’s biggest fan by any stretch of the imagination, but most of the girls last night were just appearing a tad pathetic. Sorry, I said it.
I think they were just proving his point that he was being honest with him.
HAVE SOME PRIDE GIRLS.
Seeing Kat made me go ahead and press purchase on THIS new sunless tanner that’s been HIGHLY recommended to me by a reader (thanks Denise!).
I had recommended to Denise to go buy the tan towels that I love, but when she went to Nordstrom to buy them, the sales girl talked her into THIS lotion instead.
It’s pricey, but Denise went out on a limb and called it a Must Have after using it for a weeek. 🙂
Ha! It’s on it’s way to me as I type this, and I can’t wait to try it!
Sorry for the self tanner aside, but I’m telling you, that’s the most exciting thing
you are going to read here today.
By the way, I felt like Kat was auditioning for Hollywood.
Any roll will do, but she definitely has Hollywood on the brain.
Sharleen was first up in the hot seat.
I wasn’t a fan of the earrings, but the eye make-up was GORG.
And the eyebrows were ……….well, I’m not really sure what adjective I should use to describe them.
They were IN CHARGE.
Sharleen said saying good-bye was hard, but she knows it was the right decision.
She said some nice things about Huhwahn and she can walk about town with her head held high.
High Five Sharleen.
Thanks for representing.
Kat and Dog Lover (not to be confused with Cat and Dot lovers) both pointed lots of fingers.
Both of them annoyed me.
Everybody say it with me,
GIRLS! He’s Just Not That Into You!
Now pack up the bitter and MOVE ON.
Now, let’s take a quick minute to talk about the audience members.
I’m so thankful for them. The audience shots were the only things that had me laughing this show.
I MEAN, these girls are into it, and I’m feeling like they are maybe all teetering on the edge of WACKADOODLE.
Just look at the utter disbelief plastered on all of their faces.
Nothing happened last night that warranted this type of disbelief.
This girl is appalled APPALED I SAY about something.
I can’t imagine what though. I was appaled by nothing.
If I would have been in the audience, they probably would have captured a shot of me getting in a quick nap. I really do love a power nap. I wake up feeling all sorts of refreshed.
I think this next lady might be my favorite.
She looks like she wants to eat Huhwahn Pablo with a spoon.
And I like how the girl in blue looks like she is giving somebody on the stage a piece of her mind.
And the blonde girl is all like “Oh really? Yeah, sure.”
The make-up girl that did Sharleen’s eyebrows took a turn at Andi’s too.
Andi re-hashes why she felt like she was wronged again.
ANDI – everybody say it with me – HE JUST WASN’T THAT INTO YOU.
She brings up again how she can’t believe that he shared with her that he had already been to the fantasy suite with Clare.
You knew what you signed up for.
Time to move on.
(I hear that she’s the next Bachelorette. Not super excited about that.)
I know that Emily Maynard is engaged, but I would LOVE to see her again. Wouldn’t you?
Loved me some Jillian and Emily.
In fact, wouldn’t we all like to be friend’s with Jillian and Emily?
Shay (who obviously got to meet Emily and LOVED her) texted me last week telling me to check out Emily’s blog for an awesome message about God’s presence in her life.
Boy was Shay right. It was soooo good.
Here’s a little snippit of Emily’s words:
For so many years I have questioned why He would bring me through something like The Bachelor and eventually The Bachelorette, knowing all along I would meet my husband through church just a few miles from my house. Couldn’t He have spared me so much heartbreak and humiliation?
I have gone through many storms in my life, only to have God bring me through to the other side and now was my chance to give Him all the glory. I have been so caught up in worrying about my past and trying to move forward, that I didn’t even realize that He had already brought me through.

Huhwahn says he has “no regrets”.
The girl from the first episode immediately pops in again with something to say (she spoke several times before he came out), and I’m like WHO ARE YOU?
Everybody starts hurling accusations at Huhwahn.
I’m guessing Huhwahn wasn’t on the debate team in high school.
Sharleen actually defended him very eloquently on this point, but from the look on his face I’m not sure Huhwahn understood what she was saying.
I hope explains it to him and that he sends her a thank-you note.
All of the women need to take a page from Sharleen’s and Mama’s books.
Those ladies were CLASS ACTS.
(Andi wasn’t bad either, but I was most impressed with Sharleen and Mama.)
And to wrap up the Women Tell All Recap, I found this and thought it was appropriate for the scorned woman theme.
And if the previews are accurate (WHICH HELLO? DO WE BELIEVE ANYTHING WE SEE ON BACHELOR PREVIEWS ANYMORE? THE ANSWER IS NO.),
it’s going to be a SHOCKING final episode.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me like 23 times, shame on me.
So, I’m just going to go ahead and say it.
I don’t believe you Harrison.
I do NOT believe it’s going to be the most dramatic rose ceremony ever.
Nikki is probably crying because she lost a contact or something, and Clare is probably crying because her sweet sister Laura (wink wink) sent her a tacky e-mail just letting her know that she and mama still weren’t supporting her. Just because.
Still, I’m going to stick it out.
We’re in the home stretch girls.
WE CAN DO THIS!
Okay, MOVING ON from The Women Tell All…
My hubby forwarded me an e-mail last night that he got,
and can I just say that I’ve never loved him more.
The e-mail included the newest DESIGNER sale items at Nordstrom.
He must have had a moment of weakness before sending it to me.

One more thing before you go...
A NEW BLOG FEATURE
Now, before you go, I want to introduce you all to a new feature on the blog!
You might have been seeing this on instagram for awhile now, but now it’s going to be on the blog too, and I’m super excited about it!
subscription program that does exactly what it says it does.
Here’s a breakdown of how to use it:
If those three things are found, that means that when you like the photo, the shopable items seen will be sent to your email.
Here’s one little helpful hint.
One thing I would suggest doing after you initially sign up is unliking @liketkit on instagram. If you don’t, the pictures that @liketkit puts out will show up in your feed to. Pictures of people you don’t know or follow. However, if you unlike @liketkit, you will still be signed up for the service, and your inbox won’t be flooded with random pictures!
AND…not only can you see the pictures on intagram, I’ve also added them onto my blog.
Click HERE to see the “SHOP MY INSTAGRAMS” tab. You will be able to ALWAYS find it right above the date of my most recent post on the top left hand side of the blog.
You can also refer to the top right portion of my right sidebar for my most recent
shoppable instagram pic. Again, click HERE for another example.
So please, take a minute to click around and get familiar with it!
I’m sooooooo excited about this new feature and I hope you are too!
