The show starts out with Chris announcing that this Women Tell All Special “will.be.like.no.other”. This was important information, because I thought it was going to be JUST like the one with Bachelor Aaron and all of his ladies, but whatever. Maybe he meant that instead of it being “Women Tell All” it should really be called “Trish Tells Off All Women”
The camera then pans to all the ladies, one by one, with Chris announcing their names as they pop up on screen with their “stats”. Now, this is the part where I think they are trying to pull one over on me. Who ARE some of these girls? Were they even on the first episode?? Like “Debbi” and “Celeste”?
At this point I realize that even though almost half the girls got it, the other half missed the memo about wearing a bright pink silk top on the show.
After all the ladies have been introduced (drum roll please) Trish is presented. Chris announces her as “the.most.despised.woman.in.bachelor.history”. I think Omarosa would like to challenge that prestigious honor, even though she never appeared on the Bachelor, or did she? As she walks onstage, she is greeted with an onslaught of BOOS and Hisses. Not surprisingly, ironically, she has that ever-present look of surprise (high eyebrows, big eyes) as she sits down. I was hoping ABC would have put some thumbtacks on her seat, but no.
She is working her perfectly plastered cheerleader smile at this point as Chris jumps right in. They show a clip of her in the limo after she got the boot. Seeing this for the second time, I realized how quickly she went from “ouch, that hurt” to “I’m gonna get him back psycho mode” in about 7 seconds flat. This is the stuff blockbuster thrillers are based on.
After the clip, she figures now would be a good time to start Damage Control, so she went on to say stuff about her multi faceted personality and how she “takes pleasure in the small (minor) stuff that most people miss”. WHAT THE HELL is she talking about here? Since when are other women’s husbands considered “small stuff”?
She started that same old bit about being thrown in with a bunch of “weak” girls who were jealous and competitive with her. Her theory was that “all the girls just wanted to beat her down to make themselves look better”. Um, Trish, Sweetie, you beat yourself down. Even equipped with superpowers, those girls could not have done as good a job destroying your chances as you did. She finished by saying that she took the “high road” throughout all of this and “did not stoop to the level of the other girls by trash talking them”. Woops, Trish, Too bad ABC had an arsenal of footage to shoot that claim to pieces- which they promptly began rolling. Ouch.
We return with Chris and Trish in the “hot seat” again, now Chris gives her the opportunity to “clarify a few things”. “Oh Goody”, Trish thinks, “I get to do Damage Control again and I’m so good at it since I’ve had to do it my whole life because EVERYONE in this world is just insanely jealous of me”. So, Trish starts with the kids bit. “I don’t hate kids” she says. “As long as they are clean”. Nice “clarification”.
She goes on to say that she “has a good heart” and “values her relationships with the people that support her, including her family”. O.K. I’m a little confused here. If you really valued your relationship with your family, WHY would you ever put them through the embarrassment of telling the whole world that you are a gold-digging, man stealing WHORE???
Chris asks her why she did not get along with any of the girls on the show and she snaps at Chris “did you even WATCH the show???” Ouch. Then she continues to insult the entire female race with “All girls are mean”. Well, the audience loved that one. Ohhh and BOOs abound.
Thinking she has now successfully insulted every one she possibly could, Trish remembers she left out all the people of her hometown. Then she reminds everyone that she lives in Florida the “land of rich old Men” and she has “not hooked up with any of them” YET. Then she points out that she could not POSSIBLY be a real gold digger if she had not yet latched onto one of them- now could she?” No, Trish, we don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to know that you want a YOUNG and GOOD looking rich guy and Apparently they don’t make those in Florida.
She continues to emphatically deny the charge that she is, in fact, a gold-digger and continues to say that “just because she happens to enjoy activities that require a lot of money”- it’s just a coincidence. Yes, we know she would never marry poor, and she longs for Summers in Paris and Winters in St. Barths, a medley of servants, yachting, champagne and caviar….BUT, She is NOT a gold-digger. She will just only marry men that can provide these expensive things. It’s totally different. At this point I’m beginning to wonder if the description of WHORE is more palatable to her, seeing as how she has never objected to THAT term being used to describe her. “You can call me a whore, but don’t you DARE call me a gold-digger”! They should make a t-shirt with that saying on it.
Then, just to make sure she has offended all of the Bachelor ladies, she brings up the “young girl” issue again- yickity-yacking about all the girls being 21 and she is a wise and well-seasoned 28. Last time I checked, there was only ONE 21 year old in the mix. The rest are in their mid 20’s, only a couple years shy of Trish. She then eludes that once these girls reach her “Mature” age they will “have had all the same experiences that she has”. Um, you can probably guess the ladies response to this one.
Then Jean Marie pipes up. She points out that even though you might do all these trashy things, it is completely classless to publicize it on national TV. Trish, again, sports the “Surprised” look. Her face says “Did that trailer trash chick just call me CLASSLESS?”
Susan jumps in here, competing with Trish’s bug-eyed look and slams one to her. She tells her that “there is no one to blame but herself for her getting the boot, AND she can’t believe it did not happen sooner”. She finishes with “We did not throw you under the bus, You stepped right in front of it”. BAWAMMY! The crowd cheers!
Then Chris asks Trish who she thought her friends were during the taping. After a pause, she says “Mandy and Karen”. BUZZ,.. Boing.. WRONG! And we have clips to prove it! Now the clips start rolling with seemingly benevolent Karen talking about how she would like to “hurt Trish”. She makes fun of her along with the other girls and mocks Trish whorishly sticking her tongue in Jesse’s ear. They show a clip of Trish “calling” the front seat in the limo. Karen, FYI also 28, quips “What are we 10?” This made me laugh, but seriously, No, Karen, maybe Trish was not clear. Trish is 28. You must have misinterpreted her “front seat” comment because no one this side of Tel Aviv does not know Trish’s age. She brings it up every 10 seconds. *Trish’s thought as she watches this* “If everyone in this house was not so fricking immature, they would have gotten my perfectly sophisticated “front seat” comment”. An aside, they pan to “rough around the edges” Tara who is picking and eating something off the rug??? Suzie then talks about Trish’s “Jeckle and Hyde” persona. I’m not sure I agree with her here- Trish is a SKANK all the time.
Now back to Trish in the hot seat. They start with Karen, and she says there was no love lost between her and Trish. She says she told Trish during the taping that “she thought that she was only 10% real, and the rest was just crap”. Trish nods in agreement. After all, friends always tell friends these sorts of things, RIGHT?
Karen then explains to Trish that she had over stepped the boundary of everyone’s comfort level. Trish fires back with “well, you should not have asked”. HMMM, When asked a compromising question, the rest of us were born with filters and know when to shut our mouths. Apparently Trish does not understand this concept, even at her womanly mature age of 28!
Then, she says that Suzie is the one with the J&H personality and that Suzie will do anything to get attention be it negative or positive. Sounds like Trish is analyzing herself here. ABC played her like the $3 whore that she is and she went right along with it just to get her face on TV. Who needs self- respect when you can get National TV exposure?
