1. Who knew that Eva Longoria was involved in this?
2. Who knew what this show was even about?
3. Who watched this?
It was cancelled after 2 episodes. lol. Also NBC isn’t sure if it’s even worth airing the remaining episodes. Another lol. The Bachelor it is not. From Natmonitor.com:
Reality TV World reports that Longoria’s show was cancelled because of poor ratings. “Ready for Love” did horribly when it premiered on April 10. The dating show average only 3.85 million viewers during its two-hour debut. Unfortunately, the second episode performed even worse, averaging only 3.37 million viewers.
“Ready for Love” was hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic and was widely expected to do better than it did because it had “The Voice” as a lead-in.
The show was about finding a date for three bachelors by utilizing the skills of three professional matchmakers to locate the perfect dates for each bachelor.
Prior to the show airing on TV, Longoria remarked to NBC that the show was an attempt to replicate some of the techniques that people use today to find a date, such as joining Internet dating sites. She noted at the time that she hoped people would be inspired by the show to go out in search of their perfect match.
So now I ask you, Evil Beeters, did any of you out there watch this? Again, no jugement from me, I watch Splash. Voluntarily.
“I don’t give two sh—s about my breasts. I didn’t care that, at the Golden Globes, I wouldn’t be able to show cleavage. … They said, ‘Are you sure you want to do this? Think about the life you lead and the fabulous dresses and that’s part of your job. It could put your job in jeopardy.’ And I thought, if I ever have a job that is defined by my breasts and some gorgeous gown then I’m in the wrong business.”
First of all, Giuliana rocks. Let’s get that part out of the way.
Second of all, I was under the misguided impression that Giuliana was going to have elective cosmetic surgery right away. Apparently not? Way bold.
On becoming one tough little bird, thanks to the strength of friends and fans:
“I think because breast cancer touches so many people, when someone hears you have it, they just shower you with love. The one word I always saw in all the messages was strong. You’re so strong, stay strong, be strong—when you hear something enough, you start believing it.”
Rancic underwent a double lumpectomy in October, but the surgery wasn’t completely successful. Ugh, I can’t imagine the grief of making that kind of decision. (On the bright side, she apparently opted for reconstructive surgery, so maybe we’ll see her with an amped-up chest soon. Yay!)
Rancic has remained all smiles and was, according to husband Bill, “cracking jokes” soon after the surgery.
