Oprah offers to pay for, air Trista and Ryan’s wedding; reunion airs Wed.
When the couple from The Bachelorette showed up on her show, Oprah offered to pay for and air Trista and Ryan’s wedding. Trista first said she “didn’t want to publicize” her wedding but is now apparently considering Oprah’s offer. Meanwhile, Joe Rogan, host of NBC’s Fear Factor, slams both his show (“it’s exploitation”) and The Bachelorette: “I don’t ever want to hear anybody tell me that ‘Fear Factor’ is offensive and degrading, because I’ll eat 100 horses’ [rectums] before I write bad poetry for that [bleeping] dopey whore,” he tells the Chicago Sun-Times. He says Ryan is “a traitor to his gender” and Trista is “not even hot.” Finally, ABC bleeds one more hour out of the first three seasons of the show as it airs The Bachelor: Where Are They Now tomorrow night at 9 p.m ET.
