Jennifer Lawrence, everyone’s favorite alternative to Anne Hathaway, at some point apparently wanted to be the bachelorette of The Bachelor‘s spin-off, The Bachelorette. “Wanted” does not mean, “almost was” or “was even a remote possibility.” She knew that her agents/managers would never allow it, but that didn’t kill the desire. According to The National Enquirer:
[Jennifer] is so enamored of The Bachelor that she approached the show’s host Chris Harrison at the Oscars and gushed about it. What’s more, she once pleaded with her handlers to try to get her onto the popular ABC dating competition.
“Her agent and publicist were aghast,” said a source. “They told her, ‘You don’t want to do this!’ “She said, ‘Yes, I do.’
“They had to talk her out of it.”
How amazing would that be? The paparazzi are going to hound anyone she dates, why not just put it on TV?
Ms. Lawrence has made no apologies for loving reality television, proclaiming,
[My apartment] like a reality TV show cave. When I’m out, I think about my couch…like, ‘It would be awesome to be on it right now. I bet there’s an episode of Dance Moms on. Am I missing a new episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians? I’m just stressed by the idea of missing them.
Her people wouldn’t let her to a reality TV show in a million years, but I cling to the hope that one day she’ll tell them to f-ck off and make Bachelorette history.
This year’s bachelorette is Desiree Hartsock, one of Bachelor Biceps‘ many almosts.
