I am very relieved ABC’s update on the Iowa caucuses barely interrupted my regularly-scheduled Bachelor viewing. No one cares about the dumb election.
VIVA LA MEXICO! Supposedly.
Emily: “Now that my sister’s not here, I feel like I have nothing holding me back.” I feel like that came out wrong?
The girls say they have never seen anything like this hotel suite. (Except the dope one you had in Vegas and that mansion in LA….)
