TV recaps, Entertainment, & Pop Culture
Ok, I needed to break up the recap into two parts. There was just too much happening in the last post, and I felt like this epic, controversial break up deserves it’s own post.
I read the spoilers and it was reported that Arie showed up to Becca’s house with the producers and camera people umannounced and broke up with her.
She thought that they were going to have a ‘happy couple’ visit but he blindsided her with a breakup.
That’s what people are really concerned about, and probably what Caroline is talking about when she says it was a betrayal to both girls.
We start off the new hour, and the two seem so happy together. They’re laughing, cooking, relaxing, playing chess (WTF) and just seem great.
Until… it wasn’t.
Arie says that he thinks about how this would be with Lauren. He says that Becca knows he thinks about Lauren, and that he feels guilty being with Becca.
He thought that maybe the feelings would go away because he was in love with Lauren, and it takes time. However, he can’t stop thinking about Lauren.
He says straight to the cameras that it’s time to break up with Becca.
Now, Arie is talking to Chris Harrison, in front of the cameras, that he is going to break up with Becca.
OMG This is SO FUCKED UP.
Becca is looking at the camera, saying that she’s waiting for Arie at a happy couple meeting. She’s talking about the ring, about how happy she is, and has no idea what is coming.
Ok, so this is really bad and very controversial.
I don’t blame Arie, I blame ABC.
I really can’t believe they are blindsiding this chick on TV. I knew that’s what was going to happen but it is so much worse watching it happen and play out on TV.
All I can think about is sweet, sweet Peter and how he never would’ve done this to us.
THEY ARE BLINDSIDING HER FOR REAL. THEY ARE DOING A SPILT SCREEN.
THIS IS DISGUSTING.
SHAME ON ABC, SHAME ON ARIE FOR NOT STANDING UP FOR HER. THIS IS DISGUSTING. I AM ASHAMED.
I really didn’t think I was going to be this mad but I am MAD. I am raging so hard and I can’t even think straight. FUCK THIS.
Why would Becca even want to be the Bachelorette after this?
“I hope you find what you really want. It’s clearly not me.”
Did someone write that for her?
Why do we have a spilt screen of the same scene?? From the same angle?
Why hasn’t Becca demanded that the cameras turn off the way that Kourtney asked the cameras to be off last night on KUWTK when she was on the phone?
Once again, why would you ever want to be The Bachelorette and make this franchise money when they did you so dirty??
She is crying, there are a lot of camera angles, and she’s asking what she did wrong. She’s saying it’s embarrassing, and Arie just won’t fucking LEAVE.
He is still badgering her to sit down and talk with him, and the CAMERAS ARE STILL THERE.
Why has no one told the cameras to get away? Why is she not physically assaulting him??
I have so many questions.
There are only 10 more minutes and I have to miss tomorrow’s episode.
Is Arie trying to defend his actions by bringing the cameras there? There is no defending this. Even all the Bachelor Nation people on Twitter, even his best friend Sean Lowe, is going against him on this one.
She is BEGGING him to leave and he just won’t. Jesus Christ, Arie, LEAVE. You have DONE ENOUGH.
Finally, he leaves, after her asking too many times. Yet, the cameras are still there. Make them go away.
I am so angry.
Becca is back in studio, there are 4 minutes left, and I have no idea what will happen.
Chris Harrison is asking her if she wants to see Arie again, like she has a fucking CHOICE. You’re only going to bring him out in a few minutes.
Give me a break…
I am disgusted by ABC, Chris Harrison, all the producers and camera people. How dare you exploit this girl’s heartbreak for good ratings? Was ruining DeMario & Corrine’s reputations not enough for ratings? How far will you go for ratings?
I cannot believe that I have to miss tomorrow. I am so upset. I am so angry.
Goodnight Bachelor Nation!
