Bye Bye Best Friend
While some of you may be hoping to find some juicy commentary on last nights hot tub romp in New Zealand, I'm sorry to disappoint, but this is a family blog, and what happened on ABC last night was anything but PG rated. Although, I will admit I was laughing and squirming the entire time. I mean what was up with the dramatic latin soap opera music? And how about when she...okay, okay, enough! So, I guess it pretty much goes without saying that last night was a sad night for me. As our beloved Bachelor, Jason Mesnick, said goodbye to my favorite eligible bachelorette, Miss Jillian, the adorable 29 year old Canadian Interior Designer, a part of me died. Okay, maybe that's a bit dramatic, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't devastated to see her go. She was my favorite from the start. However, during Monday night's episode it became painfully obvious to me that Jillian had somehow missed the marriage mark and become the unlikely "Best Friend." I think I liked her so much because I connected with her on so many levels. First of all, she's an Interior Designer and so am I. She's Canadian and I served my mission to Canada. And third, she's been sorely unlucky in love, and well, yah, enough said. Of course I also loved her for her fashion sense, her big heart, and that teensy tiny waistline we all coveted. But at the end of the day, if Jason wasn't in love with her, then what can you do? I think she's one stellar woman and will find love soon...like on next season's The Bachelorette! Wouldn't that be amazing? As for Jason, I think he and Melissa will be very happy together. Sorry Molly, you didn't really think he was gonna pick you just cuz he thinks you have pretty eyes did you? Oh you did? That's so sweet. Oh and Jason, good luck next week! You're gonna need it when you face all those ferocious women again on The Bachelor: The Women Tell All. I can't wait.
