Bachelor reunion attendee says Tara and Trish fight, photographs Tara leaving.
Tomorrow night, the women of The Bachelor 5 After the Final Rose special airs at 9 p.m ET. This was pre-taped, which is good since it probably took Tara 14 hours just to sit her butt down. Our spy-by-proxy Alexa relates her friend’s report from the set; apparently, we’re in for some Tara-Trish fireworks. “Tara and Trish have it out and then Tara storms off the set…Jessica is put on the spot to address the rumors that she might be pregnant.” Fresh from rejecting Apprentice Bill Rancic after four dates revealed he was too much like Bachelor Andrew Firestone, Jen Schefft also shows up. Camera phone pictures show Tara leaving, followed by cameras, and then talking backstage to producers. The pictures also show the candle-covered set and Jesse looking bewilderedly at the camera after apparently shoving his face full of food, which he can do now that the Giants are probably going to dump his ass (so says the Sun-Times Elliott Harris in his last item).
+ also: more on the pregnancy rumors from Defamer.

Ben Folds
