Last night ‘The Bachelorette’ and her suitors were in London but the baggage claims were about more than suitcases. One guy’s insensitive comments about Emily Maynard’s adorable 6-year-old daughter Ricki prompt her to tell him to ‘get the f— out.’ At last!
Sean got the one-one-one date after Emily and Ricki enjoyed a tour by open-top bus. Kalon complained about not being in control of the situation with Emily. Hw many more warning signals does Ms. Maynard want to ignore before she boots this horrible guy?
Sean and Emily toured London in a double decker and spectacularly failed to recognize some of the most famous landmarks. They did spot one familiar place, though.
“This is Buckingham Palace, and that balcony is where William and Kate had their first kiss,” said Emily, which gave Sean an idea.
“Maybe we should take our picture with the balcony in the background, and maybe I can kiss you.”
Definitely cheese around for that photo!
Back at the hotel, Kalon proved once again why he is definitely the wrong man for Emily. When Jef complained about going on too many group dates, Kalon replied,
“You’ve gotta realize that if you become a part of her life, pretty much any date is going to be a group date – it’ll be you, her and Ricki.”
At Hyde Park, Emily complimented Sean (sort of) by telling him he’s not boring like most guys who look as good as him. In turn, he professes his feelings on love at Speakers’ Corner.
Dinner was at the Tower of London, with Emily hoarse from all the yelling she’s been doing at Speaker’s Corner. She tries to find out a flaw in Sean’s character but she can’t.
Then it was on to Stratford-Upon-Avon to perform some Shakespeare. Arie and Doug failed to impress some ‘experts’ at their ‘audition’ so they were cast in the role of nurse while the others got to play Romeo to Emily’s Juliet. Rehearsals showed Kalon up as a tool again, when he told Emily to ‘run along.’ Can this guy get any more patronizing! And he produced “like the least romantic scene,” according to Emily. Yay! Arie was really funny as the Nurse and the guys were envious of Ryan who took the opportunity to steal another kiss from Emily. It works, and she declares Ryan” like, the perfect Romeo.”
Over drinks Arie clearly felt the need to assert his masculinity after playing the Nurse. Grabbing Emily and kissing her like that was probably a step too far, though, buddy. Ryan scored massive points with Emily by giving her a turquoise necklace, which is apparently her favorite color.
Meanwhile, Kalon sulked, waiting for his “chance to talk to an exhausted, sick mother who has a child waiting on her.” Chris confided that Kalon had also referred to Emily’s daughter as “baggage.” Am I wrong, here, was there someone interested in “The Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” franchise who didn’t know Emily Maynard had a daughter? Was Kalon that man?
The comments incensed Doug and I loved I for it, but Kalon refused to apologize for what he’d said, although he tried to find some wriggle room over whether he really meant the negative connotations that come with saying that about a gorgeous 6-year-old child.
Too late, Kalon. Doug wasted no time in grassing him up to Emily.
“Last night, one of the guys in the house referred to Ricki as ‘baggage.’”
The black mist descended on Emily and white hot rage emanated from her eyes.
“I want to go West Virginia hood rat backwoods on his ass!” she said.
Please. I’d pay to see that.
But it was Doug who orchestrated the naming and shaming. Emily gave Kalon a chance to explain himself but he could only weakly stammer that Ricki would be a “big responsibility” for whichever “men” Emily winds up with, that’s all.
Emily turned Kalon’s own put-down right back on him.
“I love to hear you talk, but not until I’m done,” she snarled. “I got that one from you.”
And then it came, the moment millions of us have been waiting for: Emily told Kalon to “get the f— out.” He didn’t leave at first, so Emily does, but eventually he got the message and departed ‘The Bachelorette’ scene.
Emily was still too mad to give out roses when she returned, as she felt the other guys should have told her about Kalon sooner. Instead, she went home for cuddle time with Ricki.
Next morning, Emily admitted that the business with Kalon had shaken her confidence in all the guys. So that meant Jef got a pretty tough grilling on his one-on-one date with Emily, an etiquette lesson at Chiswick House and later they escaped for fish and chips in a pub.
Jef got his defense in first, admitting it was he to whom Kalon had spouted his crap but he assured Emily that he jumped to Ricki’s defense and told Kalon he should hit the road.
“If Ricki’s baggage, then she’s a Chloe handbag that I want to have forever,” he said.
Now, I know the image of hunky Jef with a Chloe handbag isn’t great, but can you just look beyond that, please and see how adorably cute that comeback was! So Emily wasn’t the only one wondering why Jef hasn’t made a move yet. I was, too!
On the London Eye, Jef promised that if Emily and Ricki move to St. Lake, he’ll be the best stepdad ever, hosting all night “dance parties” in the living room complete with hairbrush microphones. But still he only pecked Emily on the cheek.
The cocktail party was a nervous gathering, and with good reason as Emily laid into them all about shielding Kalon. Arie came in for particular criticism, so was this a hint that she favors him right now?
Ryan seemed the man of the moment for Emily.
“I’m mad at myself for saying it, but I find myself liking him more and more,” she admitted.
At least she knows she’s being an idiot, falling for Mr. Smooth who thinks he can have any girl he wants. But apparently Sean gives Emily butterflies in her heart so it’s not over yet.
At the rose ceremony, Doug, Ryan, Chris, John, Travis, and Arie got roses. That meant Alejandro had to leave. And of course Kalon’s time on the show ended abruptly, even before the rose ceremony. All in all, I’d say that was a result, this week. Wouldn’t you?
