I need answers!

I have a couple of pressing questions that I just need to know the answers to or else ... well, reality is nothing will happen if I don't know the answers, but I might sleep better if I DO know the answers.

My first question is in regards to The Bachelor.  Where do the bachelorettes go when they haven't been given a rose?  I assume they don't go home right away and back to their life or else everyone around them would know they were not the "chosen one."  Imagine if that got out in the news - the entire show would be a bust (Not that it isn't already a train wreck, but I just can't look away.  That post will have to wait for another time.).  They must go somewhere until the taping of the show is complete.  So where do they go?  Where are they sequestered?  Is it one big party there or do they continue to cat fight and scratch each other's eyes out over who is the fairest of them all even though they are all rejects?

My next big question is in regards to the Octo Mom.  I fell asleep last night during the interview/re-interview.  I really didn't want to watch it at all but was too lazy to find the remote.  (MG is out of town and CJ and I have been sleeping in my room.  The remote was twisted up in the blankets somehwere.)  She said originally she was not receiving any type of public aide and then I saw somewhere that her mom said she receives food stamps and two or three of her kids receive income due to disabilities.  I did see the part of the conversation where Octo Mom talked about working and saving money, blah, blah, blah.  What I want to know - how much did those lips cost?  Did that money come out of the work money or the public aide money?  Did you buy those before you had kids or after?  I could go on and on about what I think of this crazed woman, but I am guessing many of you feel the same way, so I won't.  I just really want to know where she got the lips...

  1. I cannot help you, but I think they do get to go home- they have just signed some contract that they would not speak of the goings on- but I don't know if that happens after a period of being sequestered?

    I crashed early last night so didn't watch the interview, but I told myself that I would not- just doing my part IN CASE she is trying to profit!

  2. I'm not entirely sure...someone from my hometown was on Survivor a few seasons ago. I think what they do (at least on THAT show) is sequester you until the taping is over, and then you can go home. But you're bound by contract until the episodes are aired not to say a word.

    I'm pretty sure they're not all housed together, but wouldn't that be great to be a fly on the wall if they were?

  3. 1) I think they go over to the set of Survivor and party with those cast offs.

    2) Those lips? It looks like she got those done in a back alley somewhere. If The Today show gives this chick any more publicity, I'm switching to CBS. Is there NOTHING else more important going on in the world? Seriously!?

    Happy Wednesday!! Em

  4. I think they know who the Bachelor has chosen and they swoop the loser's ass outta there, straight to a waiting jet! First, those poor woman are degraded by throwing themselves at a man and kissing him and bedding him along with all the others, then this. Why would you do that to yourself?

  5. I think she is trying to be Angelina Jolie, the lips the plastic surgery, the kids, clearly she needs help. She is on public assistance but does not consider that welfare.
    ALSO? The state of CA has to pay her medical bills.

  8. Octomom..HA! Is that anything like Octopussy? I kill me. Anyway.. It has also been revealed that she received settlement money for being hurt on the job, resulting in extreme pain when she got knocked up.. errr basted. Maybe she had enough left over to buy new lips.

  9. I watched the interview - things are not adding up - OR they are getting twisted by the media - who will ever know - but she is sort of a bit wonky!

  10. Yeah those bachelorette chicks are all sequestered for a while most likely or they have some iron-clad confidentiality agreement where if they speak at all about the show, they will have to surrender their firstborn to the show.

    The octo-mom interview?? Egad ! I love Ann Curry but she sucked it last night with the tough questions...I can't even begin. The woman is a loon along with her doc and I think she got her puffed up lips from some newbie plastic surgeon or whoever does that kind of stuff just so they could try and get famous over her warped story. I swear that's what the fertility doc was all about. Fame. Pisses me off. I can't go on cause I have too much to do but this topic deserves a blogging mama summit.

  11. Octo Mom? LOL that is hilarious. She drives me nuts and I am so tired of seeing her face on the Today show and other national news shows. All she wants to attention and the media sure is giving it to her. As far as her lips go I have no idea but the bigger questions should be...does she seriously think they look good?

  12. Don't know about the lips,but....the LA Times has ongoing articles about this lady. The doctor was in yesterday's paper and he has a lousy success rate as an in vitro specialist. She IS receiving public aide and WE ARE paying for it in Cali, as if we need to pay for anything else out here with our so called "budget crisis". She owes over 40K in student loans, too. We don't like her very much out here.

  13. Ok, I'm late to the party. I know who Octo Mom is now. I should have read your blog's older entries instead of going to the latest post. Thanks!

  14. Hi, I'm over from Debbie at Suburb Sanity. Loved reading your posts; you're pretty funny. I love the question posed about the bachelorettes in "limbo." Are they held hostage? Pampered? Given therapy? Great thoughts.
