Let the Games Begin

Glenn explains his strategy for beating Matt at the Bachelor Auction.

Hey everyone! I have been waiting patiently to blog about this episode! I don't really know exactly where to dive in, so I guess I'll start with Courtney breaking the news about the Bachelor Auction to Matt and me. We were having a nice relaxing brunch, and she decides to hit us with the news that we will be auctioning our "packages" to help raise money for Leukemia research. I was more than excited, because anytime I get the chance to do something fun that involves some underlying competition (and more importantly is for a great cause) I am all in! 

The day of the auction… Let the games begin! Once the auction started, I knew I'd really have to cover the room quickly and not let Matt lay any groundwork. Being the former 1998 Lapeer East High School class flirt, this stuff is easy! I was doing well, everything was going as planned, and then all of a sudden Drew decides he wants to bid on me! I was thinking, "What is going on here?" Drew has deep pockets, so I started to get a bit worried. He may win, but like I said in the interview, he can call it date and I'll simply refer to it as grabbing some lunch with a good buddy. 

When Drew ultimately won the date but passed it on to Courtney, I thought that it was so thoughtful and generous of him to bid that amount of money just so he could send Courtney on the date with me! It was funny for me to hear Courtney talk for the first time about our "margarita kiss night." She compared it to a couple of thirteen-year-olds making out. I know I never kissed anyone like that when I was thirteen... Must have been the margaritas! That being said, I was looking forward to the date with her. Courtney is the type of girl who is really fun to hang out with and allows you to be comfortable. (Unless you have blonde hair and like Matt.) 

We had a lot of fun. We went to the Landon Winery and had amazing wines and cheeses and the flirting began. It was nice to see a little of that from Courtney, who always acts guarded and closed, so I rolled with it. Then we headed over to the Nylo hotel for an amazing dinner where the fun and flirtatious conversation continued. The thing with Courtney and me is that we can totally act like that and not have to worry about taking each other too seriously. After dinner we went up to the suite and had some champagne and chocolate strawberries, some more flirting, and ultimately the night ended with no kiss! I was OK with this, because it was a fun night. Courtney truly is a good girl! I was just thinking from the way we were flirting that she wanted another one of those "thirteen-year-old" kisses… What did you guys think? Have a wonderful week! Until next time!


Who Run the World

Neill talks about her band's debut and being a single mother.

Hello there, beautiful people! Lots of love, love, love to you all! Thanks for hanging in with us here through all these episodes… Who'd have known everything would turn out the way it did? The good news is I believe everything happens for a reason. 

As far as this final episode goes, I don't have too much to say. I believe the majority of the episode speaks for itself… it was nice, funny, awkward, charming, and in the end, my band got to play! I was very happy we got some of that on the last episode. I love how they showed us (my band, Kitty LaLa) playing the song "Come Home With Me" as Matt and Courtney had an intimate stare/gaze-into-my-eyes-before-we-kiss moment... Hey, that's what I write for, moments like that!  

Anyway, the show was a success, and to conclude it all, I've got to give you a bit of my "behind the scenes/is it time to pull my hair out/what did I just do" inside scoop!

1. Filming a reality show is the most stressful job I've ever had in my life! 

2. I was writing and putting my band together as the show was being filmed… Talk about stress! Aside from the fact that I'm a new mother, that one really took the cake! Glad you all got to see a glimpse of our Dallas debut. Very proud of myself and the guys… Kitty LaLa killed it!

Thank you everyone for all of your sweet, beautiful, and encouraging words. It means a lot not only as a mother, but as a single mother finding her own path, a singer/songwriter/entrepreneur, and most importantly, a young woman coming into her own. I consider this experience as a true blessing. I see all the beauty that could've come from it along with everything in between… Thank you all for your sweet words and encouraging statements. Everyone on the show has been such a blessing to me and my son. I love all of you! 

I would love to hear from you (seriously!). You can contact me via Twitter @NeillSkylar or Facebook me (if my personal page is overloaded, just hit my fan page and I'll be sure to get back to you even quicker, hehe).

And please be sure to like my band Kitty LaLa or follow us on Twitter (preferably both) @KittyLaLaMusic! Here's our new music video, "Come Home With Me" --

Love you all so much! Please keep in touch! Muah! And for all those single mamas out there, let's stick together. If we can do all that we do, we might as well take over the world! All my love, heart, and soul to you all! God Bless! Once again… XOXO!
