Sadly, it seems that the worst Bachelor ever and his near mute fiancée are truly dedicated to making their relationship work. We know this to be true, as the twosome were recently spotted having a meet up with WE tv's Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars counselors Dr. Ish Major and Dr. Venus "V" Nicolino. Related: Arie & Lauren Are 'Heavily Pushing' For A TV Wedding! The sit-down took place on Tuesday at the Arizona Biltmore, where it's said that the foursome discussed maintaining a relationship in the limelight and chatted about Miz Burnham's recent relocation to Scottsdale. And it sounds like Arie and Lauren are keeping their romance on track, as Dr. Ish spilled to People: "When I see Arie and Lauren, I see a couple who's both in love and happy to be together, which is great for them because sometimes both of those things don't always happen at once. They held hands and sat close to each other the entire time. That body language says to me that they are literally into each other.​" Yeaaaaaah, but remember when Arie held former fiancée Becca close and then savagely dumped her on camera??? Body language isn't everything, man. Still, Dr. V supported her colleague's sentiment, as she added: "They seemed genuinely happy." Ugh. Fine. We guess it's smart that they're seeking advice from professionals, especially now that they have to navigate their love story in the real world. Best of luck!! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Arie Luyendyk Jr. & Fiancée Lauren Burnham Want To Get Married THIS YEAR: "We Want To Do It Quickly"!

Despite having first proposed to Becca Kufrin, Arie Luyendyk Jr. is confident that he's made the right choice in second fiancée Lauren Burnham. In case you missed it, the race car driver turned real estate agent dumped Lauren and asked Becca to marry him in The Bachelor finale. However, after some time, Luyendyk Jr. realized he [...] Despite having first proposed to Becca Kufrin, Arie Luyendyk Jr. is confident that he's made the right choice in second fiancée Lauren Burnham. In case you missed it, the race car driver turned real estate agent dumped Lauren and asked Becca to marry him in The Bachelor finale. However, after some time, Luyendyk Jr. realized he made a mistake and ran back into the blonde stunner's (very open) arms. The twosome proceeded to get engaged during the tense After The Final Rose special. Related: ABC Announces The Next Bachelorette! And it seems they are already eyeing the wedding altar. After getting down on one knee, Arie told People: "We're so ready for this. Lauren told me I'm four months late on this proposal, and I wanted to give it to her and I wanted everyone at home to share in it." We really wish you didn't, but, whatever. As for Miz Burnham, she said she "had an inkling" that Arie would pop the question during the live reunion taping. The 26-year-old gleefully shared: "Arie's not good at keeping secrets. He didn't tell me, but he gave me hints!" In regards to the shade Arie and ABC have received for the way the dumping was handled, it seems that Lauren is standing by her man AND the network. She added: "We don't really care what anyone else has to say about it." In fact, Lauren and Arie are already too busy planning their upcoming nuptials, which they say will take place THIS YEAR. Well, that's fast. Oh, and apparently, they've already considered a televised ceremony. Ugh. On their future wedding, the 36-year-old spilled: "We've already been planning it, even before the engagement. We want to do it quickly!" You really think that's a wise idea, bud?? You rushed into your first engagement -- and you saw how that turned out... Regardless, the season 22 lead is totally at peace with how things worked out: "Love is not always perfect. Everyone finds each other in a different way. It's not always a fairy tale, but as long as Lauren and I have each other, we're happy." Huh. We guess, live your best lives, you two!

Leo Dicaprio Is A Better Man Than Most

Do you remember second grade? The grade where you recently kicked the habit of feasting on your own boogers and stopped wetting yourself at recess because you’re a big boy now.

But no one would listen to your […] The post Leo Dicaprio Is A Better Man Than Most appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Do you remember second grade? The grade where you recently kicked the habit of feasting on your own boogers and stopped wetting yourself at recess because you’re a big boy now. Most likely you also staunchly believed that saving animals and the environment was more important than breathing? But no one would listen to your pleas to save anything because you made art out of a mixture of macaroni and Elmer’s glue that always spelled “mom.” Your list of important issues fell on deaf ears because you ranked somewhere between the elderly and prison inmates in society’s hierarchy. You can’t save any wildlife when there’s a proverb stating that you should be seen and not heard. Well it’s a good thing Leonardo DiCaprio never grew up. He’s donating $1 million to assist in protecting the marine life in East Africa. The 43-year-old actor’s foundation donated $1 million towards funding a $22 million debt swap in the Seychelles, in exchange for the island nation creating two major marine reserves. “These protections mean that all species living in these waters or migrating through them are now far better shielded from overfishing, pollution, and climate change,” DiCaprio said in a statement I’m not sure exactly how efficient marine reserves are in real life but I know BBC Blue Planet’s David Attenborough wet himself from excitement after hearing the news. Or just because he’s about 110-years-old. The hardest part would probably be enforcing restrictions when it comes to illegal activities like stopping someone from eating the endangered tortoise that they weren’t supposed to. Because according to every American informercial at 4 a.m. ever in life, everyone on the continent of Africa is .65¢ a day away from starving. I don’t think anyone that’s on the brink of perishing will care if a sign says “please don’t eat the rare and pretty looking fish.”- With love, Leo.
