Did you guys think last nights episode was as good as I did? I thought Chad leaving would hurt the show but I honestly thought his departure made it better!
Let’s talk about Chad quickly. Him coming back to the house was definitely produced. You aren’t allowed to go back to the house unless a producer let’s you. Of course they are going to have Chad go back. It gave us another good 10 minutes of drama on the show! And the Chad drama was nuts! I’ve never been so uncomfortable watching TV as I have been watching Chad. I’m so afraid he is going to hurt someone. I guess he’s been announced as a contestant on Bachelor in Paradise. I really don’t like this and would be scared to go on the show if I were any of the other Bachelor contestants – especially the guys. Did I read that Evan is going to Bachelor in Paradise too? Oh goodness. It’s going to be interesting.
Let’s move on. Her date with Jordan left me feeling puzzled. I like Jordan a lot and he seems like a great fit for Jojo, but he worries me! Only because I feel this strong need to protect Jojo. Do I think he’s lying? No, I don’t. I think that was an ex of his that he wasn’t super into and now she’s talking about him publicly. Was he shitty to her? Sounds like it. And he even admitted he wasn’t the best boyfriend. But that doesn’t mean that he won’t be good to Jojo. I think he was acting weird during their convo because he was caught off guard and was obviously upset that his ex was talking to Jojo about him.
Some ofyou asked how Jojo would have talked to Jordan’s ex BEFORE the show. Well Jojo already admitted that she knew Jordan was a contestant from the internet before they started filming. So it’s not weird that she happened to talk to his ex. Heck, it sounds like his ex wants Jojo to know how she feels about Jordan, so I’m sure his ex reached out to Jojo! I am choosing to believe Jordan is a good guy! We shall see…
I felt so bad for Jojo when the article about her ex was brought to her attention. I could feel her pain. And it was also obvious to me that she still loves her ex, and that’s normal. Don’t we all have an ex that the mere mention of his/her name will raise the hair on our skin? I know I do! Do I still love that ex? Well hell no. It’s been A LONG time since we broke up. But I certainly did when I was on the show. A pain like that, a love for someone who treats you horribly takes a long time to go away and you take a long time to heal. Jojo still needs time. But that doesn’t mean she can’t attempt to move on, and in my opinion, finding a new man is the best way to do that! Also, who cares if she went back to her ex after the Bachelor? Heck, I went back to my ex between the Bachelor and the Bachelorette. The day after I was “off” the show (The Bachelor), I ran right back into his arms. And what did he do? He continued to treat me like crap so I did the only thing I could think of in order to give me a chance to move on and find true love – I went on to do the Bachelorette. And thank goodness I did! All my ex had to say was “Don’t do it, I want to be with you” and I would have stayed with him. I never would have gone on the show. But thankfully he didn’t say that (one of the only decent things he ever did for me) and as I laid next to him in bed with my arms around him like a lovesick puppy, he flat out told me to go do the show. I remember feeling so crushed and defeated. I crawled out of bed sobbing and called a producer of the show and told him I was “in” – I’d be their Bachelorette. That, my friends, is real life. I’ll never forget how I felt in the moment. How worthless I felt. So Jojo, even though I’ve never met this ex of yours, I KNOW him. I know just what he is like and the pain he has caused you. And I’m so happy you have found the strength to take the steps to move on. So many of us have been in your shoes and we feel for ya girl! BTW – I NEVER went back to that ex. I did the Bachelorette and never looked back! Woot woot!
Can you relate to what Jojo is feeling? Can you relate to what I went through? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
Now it’s fashion time! I am so obsessed with Jojo’s clothes and last night’s episode had some fab outfits!
Jojo’s first rose ceremony dress was by Jay Godfrey and the exact dress is no longer available. But my favorite part about the dress was the sparkly pattern on it and I found the EXACT same pattern in two other options (HERE and HERE) that are cocktail dresses (how often so we wear gowns anyway, right?)
And I can’t get over how FAB Jojo’s finale dress is! I know, I know the screenshot above is terrible. But we got a sneak peak of it in the tease at the end of the show and I fell in love with it! The only thing is, it’s over $1000!!!! Eek! Not happening for me. But, don’t worry loves! You can wear this dress to your next big event for just around $100! You can rent it HERE. Amazing right? Why would you buy it anyway? It’s not like you’d want to wear it all the time anyway. Renting it totally makes sense! The reason I was able to find the dress so fast is because I actually rented this dress for my baby shower and was going to wear it, but it didn’t work with my bump. How funny would that have been?
Let me know if you have any her fashion questions!
