Entertainment News: the bachelorette
In August 2011, Matt Grant from ABC dating show "The Bachelor" and Juan Barbieri and Jonathan Novack from "The Bachelorette," as well as members from the male erotic dance company Chippendales showed their love for Jennifer Lopez, or rather, her wax figure at the Madame Tussauds museums in Hollywood and in Las Vegas, weeks after she and husband Marc Anthony announced their split.
"J-Lo has always been one of our most popular figures but she's been getting even more attention since the news of her single status," Colin Thomas, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hollywood, said in statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com. "We decided to invite former TV Bachelors living in the area to get up close with J-Lo."

"The Bachelorette" alum Emily Maynard is engaged again!
The 27-year-old, who has an 8-year-old daughter named Ricki, is set to marry boyfriend Tyler Johnson, a 27-year-old management consultant. He proposed to her on Saturday, Jan. 4, with FIVE diamond-studded rings, according to Us Weekly.
Gia Allemand, who competed for Jake Pavelka's heart on season 14 of "The Bachelor," is currently hospitalized in critical condition after suffering a "serious emergency medical event," OTRC.com has learned.
The 29-year-old was taken to a University Hospital in New Orleans on Monday night and details about her ailment are currently unknown, her spokesperson said in a statement.
Desiree Hartsock accepted Chris Siegfried's proposal on the "Bachelorette" season 9 finale on Monday, so what's next for the couple?
Well, moving in together, for one. The two told WABC Television (sister station of OTRC.com's parent company, KABC) that they plan to move into a two-bedroom apartment in Seattle. And then, of course, there's wedding planning (part of which should be slightly less stressful than usual for Hartsock, a bridal stylist).
She stole America's heart on "The Bachelorette." Now, Emily Maynard is embarking on her next adventure -- a new jewelry line called Emily Maynard for Towne & Reese.
"The first time I like held it in my hands and saw the box with my name on it, I think I could cry," Maynard said. "I was so excited!"
When Desiree Hartsock competed for the affections of Sean Lowe on the TK season of "The Bachelor," she fell short of the final rose after a visit home resulted in a tete-a-tete betwen Lowe and her protective brother, who called him a "playboy" on national television.
Despite only reaching the final four, the 27-year-old bridal designer won the hearts of the show's fans. Her popularity has allowed her to continue her quest for love as the star of season 9 of "The Bachelorette," which will premiere on Monday, May 27 on ABC.
