Last night, we came to the cat fight portion of the season with "The Women Tell All" episode of "The Bachelor," in which producers gather together all rejected participants in a room with a live studio audience to watch -- and defend -- their most humiliating, offensive, mean-spirited and basically indefensible moments. Your mother catching you in your teenage bedroom naked with a bowl of Jell-O would be less awkward. There were new hairdos (Kelsey), new extensions (Carly), new cleavage (Ashley I) and new boobs (Jade) --- and we learned that new doesn't always mean better. We learned a lot of other decent life lessons, too -- 10, in fact. Because just watching "The Bachelor" to make fun of other people's highly entertaining foibles and personality flaws would not be honorable. Bettering ourselves in the process makes it meaningful. See, this is God's work we're doing here, people!:
- Live life like the cameras are not watching: be authentic, honest, unselfconscious and unafraid to ugly-cry. That said, if you're going to fake cry, do it better than our 7-year-old daughters.
