Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo may have met on “The Bachelorette” and quickly married, but they’re still skeptical about reality TV.
Prince Harry is standing up for his wife Meghan Markle as she’s panned by British tabloids.
And Kylie Jenner is a billionaire, but the 22-year-old is still mastering her personal life.
Maggie and Ian spoke to the newlywed “Bachelorette” stars:
On what it feels like watching reality TV today
Rachel: “I like to watch [The Real Housewives] in a very naive manner because I want to believe everything is real. The situations are real and this is exactly how their lives are and how it happens. I just like to lose myself in it. Now, “The Bachelor”… We watch that differently because we’ve been through it – on both sides of it. That one I’m a little bit more judgmental.”
On how their families’ reacted to “The Bachelorette”
Bryan: “Our families are very old school. I think that they were not convinced about the [show’s] process. [Rachel] was telling her mother that she was going to introduce me to the rest of her extended family and her mother asked her if the cameras are going to be there. And it was like, ‘Mom, the show is over, this in real life.’”
On keeping in touch with former “Bachelorette” contestants
Bryan: “They have a group chat going, all the guys from my season. I decide not to partake in that just because whatever they talk about, I don’t need to be in there. I think it’s a different dynamic with me since now I’m married to the girl that technically they were dating prior – so we’re not like best friends.”
Rachel: “I have a close-knit group of girls that were all on Nick’s season together and that friendship has lasted. I’m not as big on meeting [reality TV] people thereafter. I think I get a bad rap for that sometimes. But I’m 34, I’m not trying to be everybody’s best friend just because we were on ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ together.”
Meghan and Prince Harry’s media war
Meghan Markle is suing the owner of the Daily Mail for publishing a private letter she wrote to her estranged father following her 2018 nuptials. Her husband Prince Harry has accused the “British tabloid press” of waging a “ruthless campaign” against his wife. Maggie and Ian discuss the leadup to this Battle Royale.
Get Kylie Jenner a drink. Or five.
2019 has been quite a year for Kylie Jenner. Sure, she made history as the youngest self-made billionaire.
But aside from that, Kylie has faced some major hiccups in her personal life, which includes losing her best friend Jordyn Woods, suffering a health scare and recently splitting from Travis Scott. How did Kylie get to this point?
From the Page Six vault: That time Jane Fonda made a shrine for herself
In 2014, the actress talked about building a “shrine” to herself that she hoped would boost her then-faltering confidence.
“I’ve found myself backsliding a bit of late in terms of where my thoughts have tended to reside (not always with the generosity of vision I wish for) and my confidence has been iffy for the past four months. So, while meditating today an idea came to me: I’m going to create a shrine to myself – or, at least, the self I wish to be, the self who began to manifest when I was a young girl before the s–t hit the fan.”
These days, Fonda seems to be feeling much better about her life.
