    I guess i turned my attention away prematurely.  I'll catch it On Demand.

    I felt so bad for Alexandria.  Apparently, she has to follow a different set of rules than everyone else.  The And you're a teacher? attack was really appalling.

      and introspection was jaw-dropping. After claiming to Tim Gunn that she wasn't a weepy self-centered attention-whoring puddle of doubt she turns to Alexandria and cries "Why do you hate me!!?" It's always "me me me" with Helen. It never once occurs to her that Alexandria treated her no differently than she did any of the other contestants; with detached distain. And JFC, as you already noted all of them talked smack about each other in their confessionals. It's part of the frickin' show!

      Alexandria was completely flummoxed by it all. And I totally agree that the teacher comment was a low blow and completely out of line. Maybe if Helen hadn't fast-forwarded through Alexandria's parts of the show she would have seen what an inspiration she is to those kids. I came away liking Helen less after the reunion show; especially after that snide remark to Alexandria and the suggestion that the results are rigged. Talk about a sore and bitter loser.

      At least Ken seemed to be repentant for the way he behaved during the course of the show. He seemed genuinely apologetic and embarrassed about his angry outbursts. But the real loser remains Sandro. He is such a pig-headed weasel and his obsession with Zac Posen is creepy and bizarre. It was wonderful to see Tim Gunn dress down Sandro's childish arrogance and petulant ego but it probably didn't do any good. The dude has serious issues.

      Jeremy revealed that he's a bit of an arrogant ass. His rude comments about Bradon's proposal were exceptionally petty and thoughtless considering Jeremy already enjoys the privileges of marriage. I'm glad Bradon was able to share some of the positives that resulted from his on-air marriage proposal to counter Jeremy's dickheaded negativity. Hey British gaydaddy, go rain on your own goddamned parade!

      Listening to the squabbles and watching the fights again only served to make Bradon, Dom, and especially Justin appear even more kind, considerate, and sane than they already are. Unless you're a 13 year old girl who believes in unicorns, of course!

        So the drama just continued?

        I did see a part with Ken.  I think he's back on his meds... So he is mellowed out.

        What about barbara streisand look alike? Did she say anything?

        Honestly, if you look back, there really were four contenders in my estimation.  Dom, alexander, Bradon and Kate.  Those were who I thought would make it to the final!

        I think Alexandria is one of those people who don't get along with adults... And feels more comfortable with kids cause kids are earnest and sincere... Without the issues that adults bring to the table,  you can tell how she lights up when dealing with kids.  And in a truly honest way.

        Stuff that comes out of her mouth comes out really the wrong way.  She has said some pretty mean things... And not sure if she meant them that way.

        She really has the passive aggressive attitude that rubs me the wrong way.

        All the suffering of this world arises from a wrong attitude.The world is neither good or bad. It is only the relation to our ego that makes it seem the one or the other - Lama Anagorika Govinda

        "He is such a pig-headed weasel and his obsession with Zac Posen is creepy and bizarre."

        My husband thinks it's based i antisemitism, but if that's true, it's but one of many problems that guy has.  I see him as the male version of Helen.
