Juan Pablo Is Pissed About Clare’s New ‘Bachelorette’ Promo

As if the upcoming season of The Bachelorette—featuring a hot second of Clare Crawley and (hopefully) many more seconds of Tayshia Adams—isn’t already gearing up to be one giant sh*tstorm, a new promo just dropped, and it’s already causing Twitter drama.

Important background: Not long after Clare’s season began filming, ABC didn’t hide the fact that Clare decides to jump ship from the show after jumping ship with Dale Moss (sue me for the spoiler).

The new promo starts out with Clare’s epic breakup scene from 2014 in which she tells then-Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis that she would never want her children to have a father like him (f*cking burn), while a cover of Aretha Franklin’s “R.E.S.P.E.C.T” is bumping in the background, sung by Keke Palmer. (Not sure why she’s there tbh, but she killed it, and now all I want to do is listen to this song on repeat.)

Later in the promo, we cut to Clare and Dale’s faces glued together during a steamy makeout sesh, which is all the proof we need that these two have serious chemistry.

I’ll take any Bachelor content I can get at this point, so I was living for this sneak peek—but apparently not everyone was thrilled. The promo didn’t sit well with Juan Pablo, who still seems to be keeping a watchful eye on any and all Clare content (totally not weird at all). 

He immediately took to Twitter in an attempt to drag Clare, writing, “Interesting promo of Clare Crawley and the season of The Bachelorette, 6 years LATER and I know WHO is the Juan that can’t get over Juan… Would LOVE if you could take a GUESS?”

 

JP followed his v original pun up by saying, “PS: Clare got over LONG time ago, just in CASE…”

I’m sorry….Huh? 

First off, pretty sure this guy just used his crusty 6-year-old Bachelor promo about being ‘The Juan’ to diss…Clare? Or is it Chris Harrison? I really can’t tell. Is he salty they are using footage from his season? You’d think he’d be glad for any 15 minutes he can get (as evidenced by this shady-yet-confusing tweet that really never needed to be put into the universe in the first place).

Call me crazy, but it seems Juan Pablo actually came to Clare’s defense at the end of his tweet. TBH, this might go down in JP history as the legit nicest thing he’s ever said to her…but the verdict is still out on that one.

Who knows? Maybe this was his new Bachelor audition, considering he’s now racking up divorce fees after “quietly” calling it quits with his wife of two years, Osmariel Villalobos. Desperate times call for desperate f*cking measures, apparently.

One thing is for certain: JP isn’t afraid to make a dig toward his ex-runner up. This isn’t the first time he’s weighed in on Clare’s season, despite the fact that nobody is asking for his opinion. (Seriously, dude. No one.) 

Back in March, just days after Clare was announced as the upcoming Bachelorette, Juan Pablo let his Twitter fingers fly, writing, “I just SAW the GUYS for Clare Crawley’s Bachelorette season and it’s gonna be INTERESTING seeing HER get hit on by KIDS on their 20s… I think this MIGHT be the 3rd SEASON I’m gonna watch.”

Clare fired back with her own diss, saying, “And yet here you are, older than 99% of them and still can’t practice compassion and kindness…”

Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, ABC did end up re-casting a number of Clare’s original contestants, opting for guys who aren’t young enough to be Clare’s sons. So at least that’s one less source of ammo for Juan Pablo’s unwarranted comments.

Can’t wait to watch the sexual tension between Clare and JP’s Twitter account unravel all throughout next month’s airing.

The True Story Behind Cardi B & J.Lo’s New Movie Is Peak 2019 Female Empowerment

Good news: Cardi B has spent the last tw0 years taking over music, and now she’s turning her attention to movies. On Tuesday, STX Films announced their new project Hustlers, and I’m already positive it’s going to be my favorite movie of all time. In addition to Cardi B making her film debut, the movie is packed with badass women like Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, and Julia Stiles. I could write an essay about how much I love each of these women, but for now I will try to keep it to a minimum. The movie also stars Mercedes Ruehl, who you might not know, but she’s an Oscar winner and I saw her in a play last year and she is fierce as f*ck. Moving on.

First of all, the movie is being written, directed, and produced by a woman named Lorene Scafaria, who also directed Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Good to know that we’ve got boss women on both sides of the camera for this one. The movie is based on a New York Magazine article from 2015, and it centers on a true story. Get ready, because the plot is a wild ride. The main characters are a bunch of strippers who band together to get revenge on a bunch of gross Wall Street dudes. This sounds like all my revenge porn fantasies! Here’s the subheading of the article: “Here’s a modern Robin Hood story for you: a few strippers who stole from (mostly) rich, (usually) disgusting, (in their minds) pathetic men and gave to, well, themselves.” This is the 2019 mood, and I am 100% here for it.

It’s official! Constance Wu and Cardi B are joining me in @HustlersMovie – coming soon to theaters! ?#HustlersMovie

If you think the story sounds amazing, that’s because it totally is. It centers around Rosie, an enterprising stripper who came up with a complex operation to scam rich men. Basically, they would drug the guys, steal their credit cards, spend a sh*tload of money, then convince the dudes nothing was wrong when they woke up. Okay, like yes, these are clearly CRIMES, but also, I respect it? If this writing thing doesn’t work out for me, that’s probably gonna be my next move. The real Rosie is Asian American, so I would guess that she’ll be played by Constance Wu, and J.Lo is probably playing an older stripper/mentor named Samantha. I’m not sure who Cardi B will play, but I’m excited nonetheless.

There are many reasons to be excited for this movie, but I have to say that Cardi B’s involvement is the most intriguing thing for me. She’s obviously one of the most entertaining people on the planet, but I’m already imagining her trying to memorize lines, and it’s hilarious. Hopefully they’ll give her a few cues and just kinda let her improvise on set, because you can’t even write the sh*t that comes out of her mouth. At least she has the real-life experience of being a stripper, so maybe she can show Constance Wu and Lili Reinhart a thing or two on the pole in exchange for some acting lessons. Dark Betty will thank her. (I doubt J.Lo needs any pointers, based on her insane workout routine.)

Sadly, it’s going to be a while before we can see Cardi B and her A-list crew ruining men’s lives on the big screen. The movie is scheduled to start shooting at the end of this week, so if I had to guess, it’ll probably come out next summer. This is a long time to wait, but I have full confidence that it’ll be worth it.
