I wasn't sure whether to recap this week's women-tell-all episode, because it had kind of a potluck feel: Taking a break from the drama unfolding between Jason, Molly, and Melissa, the show looked back on some past seasons and the unbelievable (read: not unbelievable) antics that haven't made it into this arc's regular episodes.
The Bachelor: The Women Tell All
8 pm/ET ABC
Romance fans won't know until next week whom Jason picked. (Was it Melissa? Molly? And what about those DeAnna rumors?) There's a preview of the final round in tonight's traditional dishfest (expanded to two hours, incidentally), but mostly it's about looking back — with daggers. Megan and Natalie, you'd better watch out! On a happier note, there's yet another Trista-Ryan update (and baby makes four), and news of 2005 Bachelor lovebirds Charlie and Sarah.
Read on for previews of The Closer, Medium, Battle for Tobacco Road: Duke vs. North Carolina and 24.
Jillian Harris, The Bachelor
Jillian Harris has no hard feelings for The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick, who didn't give her a rose after she declared her love for him on the show.
"I still love him but I don't think I am in love with him anymore," Harris tells People. "It's like any other breakup. You have to heal yourself. You have to get over it and move on and hope the best for the person."
The 29-year-old adds that of all her exes, Mesnick "possessed the most qualities that I was looking for."
Molly and Melissa are the final two contestants vying for Mesnick's heart and a sparkling engagement ring, and Harris has a slight preference for one of them: "I became very, very good friends with ...
In this episode of The Bachelor, the last one before the finale in two weeks, Jason and the three remaining contestants travel to New Zealand. Raising the stakes, somewhat, Jason has the option of inviting each woman to stay with him in a "fantasy suite." As always, I'll be recapping the episode with the help of my lovely fiancé, who shares my opinion that Melissa has this whole thing in the bag — and also my disappointment that we won't see the much-promoted return of Deanna Pappas, who broke Jason's heart on The Bachelorette, until the finale.

Viewers will get an extra hour of bachelorhood this season — ABC says The Bachelor's three-hour conclusion is dramatic enough to merit an extra hour-long special the night after it airs.

In this edition of The Bachelor, Jason visits the hometown of the final four contestants to meet their families — but he can only hand out three roses. After meeting three contestants' families — and Melissa's good friends (more on this later) — Jason decisively sends one contestant home.

Ever wonder how to say sorry? Salvage a wet cell phone? Tell someone you're pregnant? The world of TV was full of good suggestions this week, and we've got them all in our Top Moments.

Two lawsuits between reality show staffers and TV networks and production companies over unlawful working conditions have been settled for more than $4 million, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Several hundred employees of such shows as The Bachelor, Trading Spouses, Are You Hot? and The Real Gilligan's Island filed class-action lawsuits in 2005, stating that Fox, ABC, CBS and other companies ordered them to fake time cards and work overtime with few meal breaks.
A Los Angeles judge this week granted preliminary approval to a $2.57 million settlement with Fox Broadcasting and Rocket Science Laboratories and a separate $1.54 million one with ABC, CBS, Mike Fleiss' Next Entertainment and six other production companies. "I hope this settlement provides a ...

The term "TV reality stars" takes on a whole new meaning when Marshall is taunted by them from the pages of magazines — and they actually become real.

Got any scoop on Grey's Anatomy's MerDer? Do you have any idea when we'll see the McMansion being built? — Emilee
MATT: In lieu of talking drywall (there's no foreseeable movement on Der's dream home), may I interest you in some drama? It turns out that the death row inmate who is admitted to Seattle Grace this week could do some damage to your MerDer. Guest star Eric Stoltz teases that during his three-episode arc, "I certainly insinuate myself into their relationship and am the source of not a little strife."
Any word on dates for the final three episodes of Pushing Daisies? — Kathy
MICKEY: ABC is contractually obligated to air the remaining episodes, but I've also heard that they might burn them all off ...
