A really fun podcast this week as the author of "One To Watch," Kate Stayman-London joins me to talk about the book, which is essentially a fictional representation of "Bachelorette." In the book, the star of the season of "Main Squeeze" is Bea, who is plus size. Something that we have never seen before in the history of this franchise. How will someone who knows that Hollywood has never portrayed many plus-size women on television as the center of one of America's most popular dating shows feel? How will she think mens will you see it in your season? The book has many twists and turns that really make you think as a reader of how we as a society view plus size people, especially when it comes to the media. For those of you who haven't read the book, the first 30 minutes of my interview with Kate are spoiler-free. We don't talk about the details of the plot. The next 15 minutes after that are spoiler words, so if you don't want to be spoiled, I give you plenty of time to fast-forward or just stop listening altogether. But I want both people who have read the book and those who have not read the podcast, even though I didn't realize that until the first 30 minutes were up. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please include Kate's Twitter username (@_ksl) in your responses. I actually loved this one, I completed the ebook in Four hours after I obtained it, and if any of you’re a fan of the "Bachelor" franchise, it is a should learn for you guys. I’m not a reader in any respect. Like anybody else, except it's sports activities / playing associated, or written by somebody from the Bachelor Nation, and I checked this ebook very quickly. Enjoyable and simple learn that may actually get you pondering, I promise.

(SPOILERS) I start by speaking concerning the newest from the "Bachelorette" shoot, together with the hatred that Clare will get together with all of the rumors and hypothesis. Then Kate Stayman-London joins me (6:31 pm) to speak about her ebook "One To Watch" which is a couple of actuality TV relationship present "Major Squeeze" the place they’ve a plus measurement feminine lead and all of the feelings not solely from her throughout filming, but additionally from the contestants. In the course of the first 30 minutes of the interview, we didn’t discuss spoilers concerning the ebook. The final 15 minutes, we mentioned all of the spoilers for many who have learn the ebook.
Now let's check out among the issues that occur with the filming of "Bachelorette." The primary 17 minutes or so of in the present day's podcast covers all the things I'm about to write down. LOTS of rumors and hypothesis revolving round what is occurring now. I'm positive you've learn a ton of them: Clare was being tough, Clare didn't have a date, Clare and Dale have been in a pre-show relationship, Clare completed filming after 2 weeks to be with Dale, Tayshia is the brand new one " Bachelorette, ”Becca Kufrin and Hannah Ann are there, and many others. So many tales, but nobody appears to have specifics about something at this level. There's a cause I republished the tales from E!, ET, US Weekly, and many others. As a result of I wish to ensure that after I lastly report what is occurring there, I’m not reporting rumors. I begin to hear issues which can be a bit of completely different from what’s reported within the media. After I can verify issues, I’ll publish it. However Till then, I needed to handle among the issues which can be occurring.
As an alternative of rewriting precisely what I wrote yesterday on Twitter, right here is my Twitter feed from yesterday, the place I ought to have the ability to click on by means of and skim my 9 tweets concerning the hate Clare is getting from followers that frankly confuses me:
I needed to handle among the present sentiment relating to Clare and the filming of "Bachelorette" as a result of I don't perceive the hate she's getting. Initially, no one is aware of EXACTLY what’s going on proper now. We’ve got an thought, however not many particulars. That's the in the beginning …

Sure, I’ll have a barely skewed standpoint as a result of personally, in coping with Clare prior to now, I actually favored her. However I can at all times be goal. I feel the individuals who assault her with pitchforks for breaking some form of imaginary "guidelines" that the present undoubtedly doesn't have are type of foolish. Sure, he stated "respect the foundations … respect me", and perhaps that was his mistake, since what he was calling individuals actually had nothing to do with the "guidelines" of the present itself. It was extra of a direct shot at Matt James apparently for having a Cameo account and having a "Bachelor" label there when he hadn't even appeared on the present but. So far as I do know, that has nothing to do with the foundations of the present. I wasn't telling males to not speak to ladies in the event that they have been concerned with being of their season, and many others. So his wording was most likely improper, however everyone knows what he meant by that tweet. That is the primary time in 40 seasons that the lead has met his forged of contestants previous to filming, and that's because of COVID.
One factor is for positive. This season might be not like something we've seen on this franchise. Will probably be completely different. This is not going to be your mom's "bachelorette celebration" because the saying goes. COVID threw all the things for a loop, so, to cite Julie Chen, "anticipate the sudden." Which brings us to the studies that Becca Kufrin, Hannah Ann, and different alumni are additionally on the resort. Nobody has reported precisely why they’re there, however I can say that it’s not as a result of there’s a double season of "Bachelorette Occasion", or they will make the fellows select between Tayshia and Hannah Ann, or as a result of there’s a season of BIP filming now. that Clare and Dale have "completed" their "Bachelorette" season. NONE of these are occurring. Tayshia is the "single". That's a accomplished deal. The kinds you’re going to get, how it is going to be featured, what number of episodes you’re going to get, and many others. will all come out sooner or later. So the truth that alumni are on the resort proper now’s apparently as a result of they’re there to assist. All of them should be quarantined for at the least every week (since Becca has been there because the starting of the week at the least), that's why they’re there for some time. I imply, Becca hasn't even publicly introduced her marital standing with Garrett. How may she be the "single" or instantly bounce into any type of BIP state of affairs? Belief me, it's not that.
Primarily based on the schedule, it appears to be like like Tayshia may have Four-5 weeks of filming for her season, with the premiere going down on Tuesday, September 15. We are going to see Clare's journey and all the things that occurred with Dale, together with Tayshia coming into the fold as the brand new "Bachelorette." Nevertheless, I’m beginning to hear some issues that don’t match what the media is saying and I’m making an attempt to pin down the accuracy earlier than reporting it. Completely different season this time for positive, however I assure that on the finish of all this you’ll have your spoilers as you do each season. To be sincere, I'm actually having fun with all of the chaos and confusion this season. A bit of enjoyable. However finally, each season I hear followers complain about how the manufacturing is getting too intrusive, they need a love story, why it must be produced that approach, and many others. If the tip result’s that Clare discovered her boy, why are individuals mad on the street? did she get there? The way in which I see it, Clare has apparently gotten her love story, Tayshia is on her journey to presumably discover hers now, this present has all the excitement they want and so they don't premiere for one more 6 weeks. It looks as if a win-win for everybody concerned.
I've been getting a couple of emails about lacking columns in latest months, and once more I discover myself saying this each season, however that's the best way it’s within the low season. For Four months, there was nothing to write down about. Solely within the final 2 weeks has one thing occurred with the "Bachelorette Occasion", and clearly the knowledge has been tough to return by. And truthfully, when I’ve a bit of knowledge to report, even when it's only a few sentences or a paragraph, it's a lot simpler to only tweet it and publish it to my IG story. It's 2020 now. Lengthy-form columns might be posted on my web site, however I haven't had something to justify a couple of paragraphs within the final Four months outdoors of in the present day. So when I’ve tidbits and items to offer you, I'll tweet it and publish it to my IG story. That is a lot simpler. I by no means revealed, nor will I, a column on my web site that’s Four sentences lengthy. It's precisely what Twitter is for and I exploit it accordingly. Additionally, typically as soon as I verbalize one thing in a podcast, it's a bit repetitive to write down all of that in a single column, except it's massive information, and many others.
As soon as the season begins once more in September, we are going to return to a daily schedule. The Clare / Tayshia season airs on Tuesdays, so it appears to be like like "Reader Emails" might be launched on Tuesday September, my "Bachelorette" recap might be posted on Wednesdays, and Thursday's will stay the podcast.
Talking of podcast, go watch the “Sport of Roses” podcast in the present day as I did an interview with them that was a whole lot of enjoyable. I met them a couple of weeks in the past after they recapped my look on Nick's podcast. Excellent issues and I feel you’ll get pleasure from me in your podcast in the present day. An excessive amount of enjoyable.
As for subsequent week's podcast, I'm set to file with this individual on Tuesday, and I'd say it's fairly necessary. This isn’t somebody I’d have hoped to have on the podcast, I’ve undoubtedly been vital of them prior to now, we are going to talk about their time on the present and among the strain they’ve taken, in addition to talk about many different subjects. So far as I do know, nothing is off limits. I don't wish to curse something or inform you if it's a boy or a lady. I simply know I'm wanting ahead to this one and I do know you’ll too.
