Ready for Love? Eva Longoria & the cock block.

look at us! we're so happy!
Some of you may remember the short-lived reality dating series that premiered on NBC a couple months back called Ready For Love.  Hopefully, most of you have found a way to block it out of your mind.  Here was the concept in a nutshell.  Three different male contestants each get a group of nine women to choose from.  Those women are divided into teams of three with each team getting a dating coach.  So, in a way, the coaches are also competing against each other.  Tracy McMillan who wrote the book Why You're Not Married...Yet was one of the coaches (which totally made me lose respect for her, btw.) The show was God awful and was pulled from the schedule after two episodes.

But now, word's gotten out that Eva Longoria who produced the show is dating one of the male contestants. Um...hold up.  She's such a cock block!

I get that this show is totally fake and none of these women really stood a chance with any of these guys and while I didn't watch the rest of the episodes on Hulu, this sounds like all kinds of shady to me.  It's basically the equivalent of Chris Harrison dating Desiree from The Bachelorette (which side note, would be amazing.)  I just don't believe that their romance blossomed right after the show wrapped.  Or as they claim like many C list celebrity couples do: once the press linked them together, it was like "OMG.  How did Perez Hilton know before we did that we should get together?"  NO.  These hoes were doing it from day one. 

Eva Longoria is basically your prettier best friend who pursues the guy you've told her you're into.  She's every single woman's worst nightmare.  In fact, she's so ready for love, she doesn't care who she has to screw over in the process.  The sad thing is, if this show had been a HUGE hit, she would have never risked losing viewers in season two by dating one of the contestants.

Do you guys know what the lesson is here?  DON'T GO ON A REALITY DATING SHOW. Watch Ernesto "find love" in the finale of the show.

  2. Um, this is AWESOME news for me. Unintelligently, but for reasons not totally illegit, I watched this show in its entirety. If you'd seen it, you'd know how annoying, entitled, false, culturally stupid, and pretty-pretty-perfect-passive-aggressive the contestant that supposedly "won" Ernesto was. I give Eva props and a locker room high-five bro on this one. And he dodged a major bullet by dropping Shandi. I mean... not that, like, I care, or anything...
