Jen Schefft Is So Busted
SHOUTS OUT TO THE PEOPLE VISITING FROM DISNEY, INC!!
Jen Schefft, you are so busted. Who the hell poses with their boss like that? Kinda cozy, huh? It looks like a downgrade to me. (Another peak a yummy, penniless Jerry Ferris.) I recently discovered that the photo was taken September 6th 2004! Well before the show started!. There's another rumor circulating that Jen only did 'The Bachelorette' as an audition for another Mike Fleiss tv show; well, she obviously flunked because public opinion is against her all the way. People hate Jen Schefft. If she didn't want to get engaged, she should have done the smart thing and said to Jerry that she wanted to stay with him and explore a relationship (a la Meredith and Ian from the last Bachelorette). They could have ridden the D-list celebrity circuit, made some $$$, and then quietly broken up in six months when everyone is focused to the subsequent Bachelors and Bachelorettes. I'll put it bluntly. Jen Schefft is DUMB!
Do you want dirt on the next 'Bachelor'? Kristin at E!Online dished about him recently. You'll love these two tidbits:
First, I have to tell you something I found absolutely hilarious--I'm told by sources close to filming that they are using Charlie's parents' house and pretending that it is Charlie's for the upcoming season. Apparently, Ma and Pa O'Connell have two homes--one in Montauk and the other in New York City. The producers wanted to make C.O'C. appear like more of a high-roller, so they rolled him up to mom and dad's house and made it look like his own. In reality, he has a bedroom with twin beds that he shares with brother Jerry O'Connell. Cozy, no?
I'm told that a few months ago, Charlie met with Bachelor producer Mike Fleiss at a dinner party and talked with him about becoming the next Bachelor. Only problem? He had a sweet little girlfriend of two years; her name's Dana. She found out about this interaction and flipped, naturally, but she ultimately forgave him when he said he wasn't going to do the show. Cut to about a month ago, when out of the blue, Charlie showed up at Dana's door and broke up with her. She then found out he was the next Bachelor and had started filming right after their breakup. Why the rush? Seems Charlie wasn't the producers first choice--their original big B fell through. How's that for a little drama? If only the cameras had been rolling then...
