Jill’s chitchat: Are the mayor and Misty Saunders over?

Misty Saunders is off to Europe with her sister. She claims she had planned the trip before she started dating Mayor Bennett, but rumor has it that she decided to go on the trip after the mayor broke her heart.

As she climbed into the taxi, tears were falling. The mayor was not there to say goodbye. It is unclear what happened, although there is speculation that the mayor is dating a model. He was recently seen in Richmond with a tall, blond-haired woman.

The once happy couple was recently seen at the Coffee Carafe. They were laughing while drinking cafe lattes. That happiness was short-lived as it appears that Misty has become another addition to the mayor’s long list of exes.

Jill’s chitchat: The Mayor is caught kissing Misty Saunders

Mayor Cord Bennett’s door keeps revolving and the current woman through his door is Misty Saunders, a Lily of Lincoln Falls member who is well-known for her break-up pumpkin loaf.

The couple was seen together at the Coffee Carafe chatting and laughing over cafe lattes. As they left, the mayor was seen leaning in for a kiss. The Coffee Carafe is not Mayor Bennett’s typical location for a date. He usually prefers taking his dates into Richmond.

Misty Saunders also isn’t his usual type. Everyone knows the mayor prefers blondes and Misty Saunders has copper red hair. Is he expanding his repertoire?

Since he’s taking a break from his type, I wonder if this relationship might be more permanent. Oh wait, I forgot who I was talking about. The mayor does temporary, not permanent.

This whole relationship has me confused and I’m left with many questions that I hope will be answered in coming weeks, if the relationship lasts that long. With the mayor’s track record, I have a feeling that Misty Saunders will soon be baking her break-up pumpkin loaf for herself.

The Bachelorette: Rachel got her ring [Spoiler Alert]

Rachel got what she wanted. She got her ring and is now engaged to Bryan. This one was not a shocker. I think everyone knew she was going to end up with him.

The only shocker in the finale was the goodbye to Eric. I thought the final two would be Eric and Bryan. I was wrong. She kept Peter, even though they had countless conversations about how he wasn’t ready to propose. I respect him for sticking to his decision.

Because she kept him around, their last date wasn’t pleasant. It was more of the same. Rachel harped on how she went on the show for a ring and Peter told her again that he wasn’t ready. Eventually, she gave Peter what I consider to be an ultimatum — either he proposes or she walks — which is not a great way to start what is supposed to be the rest of their lives together.

Even though they both cried, said I love you, and didn’t want to say goodbye, they did. Peter didn’t make it to the rose ceremony.

To me, this means Bryan won by default. If Peter had been ready to propose, I question whether she would have picked Bryan.

So yes, Rachel got her ring, but for how long? A ring is only a piece of jewelry. It’s not a commitment. I can’t help but feel that she chose a ring over love.

What do you think of Rachel’s choice?

Tres Veces Ana: Will the tears ever stop?

Over the years, I’ve watched a number of novelas and have come to expect the tears. But Tres Veces Ana takes the tears to a whole new level.

Ana Laura cries on just about every episode. She and Ramiro are like a broken record. They are together and happy. Then, Ana Laura allows Ana Leticia to poison her thoughts and Ana Laura breaks up with Ramiro and cries endlessly until she gets back together with him. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

It’s obvious Ramiro and Ana Laura belong together, but it will never happen until Ana Laura gets over herself and realizes Ana Leticia is evil.

Ana Laura lost one of her legs in the car accident that killed her parents and separated Ana Lucía from her and Ana Leticia. Her missing leg bothers her more than Ramiro. He doesn’t care, but Ana Laura always believes he’s taking pity on her. I’m hoping by the end that she realizes that Ramiro’s heart is completely hers.

She also lets her fear of acceptance rule her. I agree with Ana Leticia on one thing. Ana Laura is desperate to have someone at her side. That’s why when she’s not with Ramiro, she’s with Valentín. While Valentín is out to get revenge against Ana Laura’s uncle, Mariano, Ana Laura really shouldn’t be with anyone until she gets her head straight.

Speaking of getting heads straight, Ana Leticia is crazy. I realize she lost her husband, Marcelo, but that doesn’t mean she has to make everyone else miserable. She’s only happy when Ana Laura is crying.

Although Ana Laura has been the biggest crier, Ana Leticia is giving her a run for her money. Since she found out Marcelo might be alive and that Mariano is marrying Jennifer, she’s become a regular crier. Mariano yells at her and she cries. She reminisces about Marcelo and cries.

Crying over Marcelo, I can understand, but crying over Mariano, I can’t. She has a very odd fascination with her uncle. Let’s just say, that Jennifer should watch her back.

Of the three sisters, Ana Lucía seems to be the most stable, probably because she didn’t grow up with her family. Despite being the most stable, she’s had her tearful moments. She tends to cry whether she’s happy or sad.

Santiago (aka Marcelo) makes her happy and she cries. She thinks about what will happen if Santiago ever gets his memory back and she cries.

These sisters cry so much that it makes me wonder what Angelique Boyer, who plays the triplets, is thinking every time she’s required to cry or whether she has a bowl of onions nearby to help her out.

Seriously though, I’m enjoying Tres Veces Ana. I just wish the sisters would stop crying, at least for a little while. It can’t be healthy to shed all those tears.

Are you watching Tres Veces Ana? If so, what do you think of the sisters?
