Top Moments: Dexter's Killer Surprise and Mother's Legendary Proposal

Our top moments of the week: 12. 'Til Death Do Us Part Award: It took another nine years, but a second Bachelorette couple ties the knot! In an ABC special, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum get married in a Bachelor alum-studded ceremony officiated by host Chris Harrison. As with any Bachelor-related event, there are a bunch of cheesy, staged moments, but their emotional vows— especially when J.P. tells Ashley, "You gotta hold it together, because I'm not" — are as real and sweet as you can get. Mazel tov! 11. Best Backstab: During the jurors' testimonials on the Survivor: Philippines finale, Jonathan Penner, an actor himself, lest you forget, uses the time to spill the facts about Lisa Whelchel — that she's a former star of The Facts of Life, something she had withheld from the whole group. "You guys deserve to know that [before voting]," he says. Lisa ends up losing to Denise. There's no guarantee that Lisa would've won anyway, but still, cold, Jonathan, cold. 10. Most Shocking Moment: When Divya and her ex-boyfriend Rafa get back together in Las Vegas on Royal Pains, they really get back together. After months apart, the two make up in Sin City and immediately proceed to the nearest wedding chapel, where they spontaneously and secretly tie the knot — not too long after Divya so cautiously backed out of her own arranged marriage 15 years in the making. Fifteen years? Fifteen minutes? Can we at least pick a gift from the original registry?

9. Most Awesome Dance: What's the perfect way to cap off your best episode of the season? If you're Happy Endings, you make your tag a montage of the gang having a dance-off with Hip-Hop Santa! Seriously, we could watch a whole episode of just that. Also, why have you been hiding those moves from us, Elisha Cuthbert?! 8. Worst Victory: On the two-hour season finale of Burn Notice, after Michael kills his CIA mentor Tom Card — aka the man who lied to the CIA and tried to have Michael and his team killed in Panama — he's finally able to make things right with the CIA. Although it means that he and those he loves don't have to be on the run anymore, the price he must pay is too high for Fiona, who begins to cry the minute she sees Michael — in a black CIA-like suit — explain to her that he "made a deal." Upset that Michael lied about being done with the CIA after they almost died in Panama, Fiona starts to sob and pulls away from her (now-former?) lover as the screen cuts to black. Guess this isn't the right time to talk about the CIA's great benefits package and health-care options...

7. Most Gripping Duet: It's always great to see veteran talent embracing fresh faces, but LeAnn Rimes literally doesn't know when to let X Factor finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar go. During their duet of Rimes' hit "How Do I Live," the country star suddenly grips Sonenclar's arm and then pulls her in real close as she subsequently fails to hit several key notes at the end of the song. When asked about singing with Sonenclar, Rimes replies, "Oh my God, she's such an amazing talent; I want to wrap her up and just hold her," Rimes says, as she wraps her arms tightly around Sonenclar again. "You're doin' it!" host Mario Lopez adds awkwardly. Where's Brandi Glanville to stir the pot when you need her? Oh, wait. 6. Wet and Wild Award: Always a good sport, Tom Cruise sits down with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night to play his famed and super-wet Water War game. Perhaps learning from his all-too-short contest with Jon Hamm, Fallon challenges Cruise to a hilarious best-of-nine series that includes a tie (that Fallon won), Fallon dousing the Jack Reacher star with a pitcher of water and some confusion by Cruise as to whether they are playing aces high. He loses that hand, but fittingly wins the last hand on an ace and drenches Fallon with a Super Soaker. That's one fun way to avoid mentioning the K-word. 5. Best Tribute: In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, numerous shows, including Saturday Night Live and The X Factor paid tribute to the victims, but perhaps the most haunting one of all comes from The Voice. Host Carson Daly, Christina Milian, the coaches and the Season 3 contestants perform a stirring rendition of Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah," while each cast member holds up a card displaying the name and age of one of the deceased. 4. Best Cameo: Naturally, the Gossip Girl finale is filled with OMG moments, like Blair and Chuck's impromptu wedding — and its subsequent interruption by the cops — as well as the reveal that Lonely Boy himself, Dan Humphrey, is actually Gossip Girl. But the show's best moment comes when longtime narrator Kristen Bell finally appears onscreen, staring straight at the camera while reading GG's famous opening line. The camera pans back to reveal Bell is playing herself and reading from a script to help her friend, actress Rachel Bilson, audition for the role of Blair in the upcoming movie based on Dan's book. "I'm sorry. If I'm being really honest, Rachel, I just don't think you can pull off high school anymore," Bell says. Whoa, now we know why Gossip Girl wasn't afraid to tell it like it is! XOXO. 3. Best Play: Barney proposing to Patrice? You cannot be serious, How I Met Your Mother. And they're not. It turns out that everything Barney has done in the past few weeks — telling Robin he's over her, dating Patrice, burning his single guy Playbook — was all a ploy to propose to Robin. He explains himself in writing on the final page of The Playbook, "The Robin," on a candlelit roof of her station's building. "Seriously, Barney? Even you — even someone as certifiably insane as you — must realize this is too far! You lied to me, manipulated me for weeks," Robin says after reading the first 15 steps. "How could I be with a man who thinks that this trick, this enormous lie could ever make me want to date him again?" "Turn it over," he says. "Step 16: Hope she says yes," the page reads. And — wait for it — she does! 2. Deadliest Double: The show may be called Dexter, but Deb definitely steals the spotlight in the Season 7 finale. Faced with either killing her brother — and the guy she loves — or the woman who would expose him, Deb decides to take an innocent life and shoots her longtime frenemy/mentor LaGuerta in the chest. Looks like Dexter's Dark Passenger may have found a new home! 1. Die Another Day Award: Just as Carrie makes her choice on Homeland, picking Brody over her career, everything blows up in their faces. After Brody notices that his car had been moved from its parking spot, it explodes, killing hundreds of CIA personnel, including Estes, at Vice President Walden's memorial service. Doubting him once again, Carrie pulls her gun on Brody, but he talks his way out of it, suggesting that he's been framed — a theory further supported later when al-Qaeda releases his suicide tape from last season. So Brody doesn't die as many of us suspected/expected, but he's now the most wanted man on either side of the Canadian border. Will he be back? And how? What were your top moments?

Sex, Lies & THE BACHELORETTE

Jul 29 2014 10:02am CDT | Source: the TV addict

With one awkwardly uttered sentence, THE BACHELORETTE’s Nick Viall pulled back the curtain in so dramatic a fashion that even Chris Harrison couldn’t prevent the audience from seeing just how tawdry a freakshow he’s presiding over. “If you weren’t in love with me,” uttered the clearly besotted guy when finally he got to confront would-beRea ...

Misee Harris: Why a Black Bachelorette May Matter More Than You Think

Jul 28 2014 2:01pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

The Bachelor franchise. For 28 seasons, millions of viewers have watched a familiar formula of women crying, helicopter rides as first dates and so many red roses given and 'I love yous' exchanged that have, with the exception of three cases, ended in break-ups. The show isn't exactly a rousing advertisement for the institution of marriage, but rather a venue for many contestants to pursue pseudo-pe ...
