Ready For Love Canceled

I'm not sure how Ready For Love ever made it to air. I presume it is because at this point NBC is willing to listen to offers to bring anything to air if it will get them ratings. If you ever wanted to see a network seriously consider a real life version of Running Man, this would be that time. This show would never make it on the air on any other network. I didn't like the idea, and I really disliked the hosts. Tell me again why people like Bill & Giuliana Rancic because I don't see the attraction.

Was that the one about the douchey looking men that said things like "I'm a world famous rock star" "I'm an extremely good looking and exceptionally kind multimillionaire, and I'm just looking for love?" Because those guys looked like they sucked. Are you a world famous rock star? I think you maybe misunderstand the word "famous"

Agree about Gulianna and Bill. I liked them for a little bit, but I feel like their son is more of a accessory to her than a child.

auntliddy said...

Re: g and b- dont like them, dont hate them, but dont get their appeal either.

Ivs said...

LOL att Enty's running man reference. It sounds like a hilarious but crazy idea but it really doesn't seem so ridiculous given the state of NBC. Also, shitty movie but a great book; recommend it to all :)

FlirtyChick74 said...

I never understood them either. I'm ambivalent about them too.

Redd said...

Ryan Seacrest has successfully promoted Guiliana down our throats, she gets more airtime than the Ks.

FlirtyChick74 said...

I looked at show's website again. Realized that we already have a show for lazy pretentious men. It's called the Bachelor.

The BLS said...

I was sick a few years ago and ended up watching a marathon of "Guiliana & Bill" on the Style network. They're actually pretty interesting people. I don't necessarily agree that their son is an accessory. The show documents their years of fertility struggles.

In any case, WAY more real than the Kardashians. Bill is a pretty smart dude: won the first season of Apprentice. You know, back when it was a hit.

veganbilly said...

30 Rock did a plot line about intentionally tanking NBC, lols. I watched this thing and it was creepy and gross, glad it's canceled.

Hurricane Tiffany said...

I could be wrong but aren't Giuliana and Leann Rimes BFF? That says a lot right there...crazy crazy

jennifer hansen said...

@dragon okay now this one i like!

shopgirl said...

I liked G after I saw her E!True H'wood Story. Went to college for journalism -- who knew. Then I saw some stupid Infomercial where the 2 of them are trying to get us to buy some stupid time-share and that was the end of my support. She's cool but her hubby comes across as a snake oil salesman. Leave us alone G&B.

jennifer hansen said...

the good news about this dumb show being cancelled is that NBC is putting grimm in it's place for the rest of the season!

KPeony said...

She looks like a praying mantis. Michael K is right.

Gayeld said...

@dragon. I'm with Jennifer. This one rocks.

Blondie! said...

Out of curiosity I watched the first episode. Good lord it was slow and annoying. The promos for the followups showed that they were going to take half the time on the other single men than they had on the first.
Having not watched the other episodes, I have no idea if it helped. All I know is that it was boring and between Bill, G and Eva introducing the show, it made me feel that there were waay too many hosts. It was just horrifically bad on so many levels.

Sherry said...

Gawd ain't that the truth Redd. What talent do these two possess? Why do I care about their fertility issues? Please. Go. Away.

Elizabeth312 said...

@BLS- I watched them on that show too which is when I liked them the most! But since then I've seen her interviewed more about taking care of Bill than being a new Mom. If you struggled that much to have a child, wouldn't you try and spend more time with him, than signin up for all these new projects? E! News, fashion police, G&B show and this show? Just my opinion. I also might just be cranky this morning. :)

Mango said...

I like Giuliana on Fashion Police and she's actually educated (has a master's in journalism) and isn't just a bimbo shoved in front of the cameras.

Tempestuous Grape said...

I watched the first 5 minutes yesterday...it was so painful and in such poor taste, that I'm sad to say that I'm officially over Bill & G. I still wish them well, but they're starting to bug.

PuggleWug said...

Thank god. Those commercials were fucking horrible.

Izzie said...

Oh man, yes! The promos were all over NBC's app (I use it to watch Parks & Rec) and the "rock star" guy said, "I'm not your usual rock star. I can count the women I've slept with on my fingers." Every time I heard that, I would just giggle. As opposed to counting them on your nose? Or your leg? Did you sleep with them on your fingers?

califblondy said...

Slow and annoying pretty much sums it up. I was hoping for a classier Bachelor/ette, but it was horrible.

Anna Nonymous said...

Because they are a power couple. We know both of them through the public eye. That's all it is. You know when two friends or acquaintances get together you think oh I know and like both of them, how nice that they've found love together. We subconsciously become familiar with public figures,and when two of them get together it makes you feel you know them even more. I could be way off, but that's just my personal feeling.

auntliddy said...

I hate men who worry or make wife promise to keep them number one even if they have children. Dr phil spewed the same inane drivel. Jesus, are u that insecure???!!! Of course husband is first , but when u hv sick or cranky kid, he becomes number 2. Its called life and being a parent, ya big babies!

car54 said...

This show was really strange-it's like they had a brain storming session and then put ALL the ideas on the show.

They did stunt casting by bringing back the bachelor's old girlfriends for drama.

Guiliana wasn't horrible--the host really was not on the show that much--but Bill was totally useless--if he said 2 things the whole show it would have been remarkable. I can't believe I watched it--I've never watched the Bachelor.

bunny honey said...

Don't know to much about these two but I love The Running Man movie(I'm an 80's child)!

The Real Dragon said...

Dude really lmao

MadLyb said...

I'm one of those people who don't get why a woman who resembles a twig (in both looks and personality) and her boring milquetoast husband with Osmond teeth would be the subject of anything, never mind a reality show.

__-__=__ said...

Can't believe a network could become fhis bad. I guess that's what happens when a board of directors owns all the stock. And ITA she looks like a Praying Mantis!

paula said...

I like Giuliana from Fashion Police. She's funny and smart about fashion and pop culture. Don't really care about Bill. Don't really care about Ready for Love.

Kloie said...

She looks like ET, and I prefer Fashion Police without her.

Also, I can't sympathize with her fertility struggles because, from everything I've heard, she was having trouble because she refused to gain weight. The doctor told her she could have better chances of getting preg if she gained ten pounds, but she wouldn't. That's just ridiculous.

Unknown said...

Serioulsy Am I the only one who knows Bill Ranic was an out gay man in Chicago before he went on the apprentice?

Seachica said...

I watched this show this morning, because I was *really* bored. Horrifying show. It promotes the idea of women having to "sell themselves" to a guy. How about a guy is attracted to a woman because of who she really is, rather than who she is trying to be to reel him in?! Argh, this show pissed me off. And the stunt casting of bringing in a past fuck buddy -- ridiculous. I knew immediately that she would be leaving, because if he didn't see her as girlfriend material after 3 years, there was no way he suddenly would now.

The "rock star" guy was slimey as all hell. No way do I buy that he's some sensitive rock star who has only slept with a handful of women. He's a desperate one-hit wonder guy whose wife left him because he was cheating (hey, maybe he was a sensitive guy and had an affair with his publicist rather than a bunch of groupies!). The other guys looked equally slimy. Whoever green lit this piece of shit should be fired and forced to watch Battleship the movie on continuous loop for the rest of their life.

correy said...

Lol

correy said...

Why couldn't they make MILF Island into a show? I'd watch it.

Redd said...

I kinda think of Bill on the same level as Bethenny's husband, just as a matter of convenience.

erika said...

because they have the perfect marriage! the best in the world!....

the save $$$ on groceries only bill eats

Amy in MI said...

I've tried to watch her, but she is just so..... Disproportionate. Her face seriously looks like a praying mantis and she is very sickly looking

Pini 27 said...

Does anyone remember when she was dating Jerry O'Connell and he dumped her for Geri Halliwell? She unashamedly said would wait for him to come back and when he did, they BOTH gave interviews trashing Geri.

After that, I went from just thinking she was disturbingly unattractive to a pathetic cow. As for him, I still think that Rebecca Romjin traded down.

Goodnight said...

I remember watching eps of G&B and I knew as soon as the doctor told her she had to gain weight to increase her fertility they were going to adopt.

Anotheramy said...

I honestly thought I was the only one that doesnt get the allure of Guiliana.

di butler said...

Im always torn between praying mantis and ant queen. I guess I think St.Angie JoPitts is more ant queen. Hard to question Michael K, on anything. That dude slices like all the ginzus.

Karen said...

How did bill and guiliana get their own show or become famous? Why do people watch them?

Pink_Palace said...

Thanks @pini27! Wow, had forgotten all about this, the original reason I disliked her. She has grown on me over the years though...lol

Pink_Palace said...

I may be the only one who enjoyed this, but I did and hope the other episodes are aired on the Style Network. I know I shouldn't, but the matchmakers did have some good tips for single gals and I am a hopeless romantic...lol

cornflowerbluezz said...

@Hurricane Tiffany Leanne Rhymes is only BFF when she allegedly needs to go on TV & cry alleged crocodile tears about how she's allegedly picked on & how blissfully blessed she is being married to that hound dawg Eddie Cibrian.

No offense to real life hound dogs. :-D

KZoeT said...

Anyone remember the short-lived E! series a couple years ago that had brides-to-be competing for plastic surgery before their big day? That was a Rancic production. Her self-loathing, body-shaming self can go straight to hell.

Mooshki said...

PSYCH!!!!!

CDAN Reader said...

I watched a marathon of Bill & Guliana’s reality show way back during the 1st season and I haven’t tuned in since then. I can’t stand them. Well, Bill is just there for the paycheck. I know that most situations are created/manipulated for the cameras, but Twiggy’s vapid, self-centered shallowness is on a new level.

I remember the episode of them buying a house and she wanted to have the brand new kitchen gutted with different cabinets/fixtures/appliances, etc. WTF for? That bitch doesn’t cook or eat. She only walks into the kitchen to get to the den.

Their baby is a total accessory, just like a Birken bag. Guliana could give a sh*t about that kid. She was just trying to hold on to Bill and cross another thing off of her “To Do” list. Baby? Check. Still keeping up w/ the Joneses.

She’s another one that needs to ditch L.A. Ya still famewhoring after all these years? Move to Chicago to focus on your hubby and family. You’re lucky you even HAVE a man or a job! You live in L.A. and you look like an old Sleestak. Move to Chi-Town fulltime and get a local news anchor or morning show gig. Wait, that might be too much work. Your marriage is a sham and didn’t you claim that you MUST remain a sample size so you can continue to get all of the free designer outfits from the E! network? Priorities.

Tara said...

The most interesting thing about Looking For Love promos was that they were trying to pass those guys off as heterosexual.

mkrobb said...

@Paula, I agree, I like Giuliana on Fashion Police and I don't get the vitriol towards her.
