Buckle up, Bachelor fans! We at ETonline are recapping week 4 but we're warning you now — Monday night's episode was jam-packed with drama, tears, and virgin territory. (And that was all just from Ashley I.!)
First let us give you a mini-recap on tonight's three different dates…
Lake-Side Shenanigans: Chris planned a "natural" date, which apparently translates to a day at the lake in Bachelor land. Some ladies (Ahem, Kaitlyn) felt that the best way to grab the bach's attention was to strip down and show off their most ample assets—although let's be honest, we doubt that all of those bodacious body part are really au naturel.
Who Got the Rose: Kaitlyn.
Having a Ball: In order to decide who would be going on this week's coveted Cinderella-themed one-on-one date, Chris enlisted the help of his three sisters. (Don’t' worry, they weren't »

Matador star Yvette Monreal has signed on for the female lead in Universal Pictures' Untitled Lowrider Project. The movie already has Demián Bichir, Theo Rossi and Gabriel Chavarria attached to star. The story centers on a teenager (Gabriel Chavarria) who is caught between his traditional father (Demián Bichir) and his estranged, criminal brother Ghost (Theo Rossi), both of whom are competing in the annual lowrider "Supershow."
Yvette Monreal will play the love interest of Gabriel Chavarria's character, described as "a smart, talented maverick of a girl who is a fellow tagger but who also has a scholarship to Columbia University in New York." The project first surfaced back in 2010, and is set in the East Los Angeles world of lowrider cars and street tagging. No production schedule was given at this time.
Greer Grammer feared becoming an online laughing stock at the Golden Globe Awards. The 22-year-old actress - the daughter of Kelsey Grammer and Barrie Buckner - handed out the trophies at last night's (11.01.15) ceremony and had been careful to select ''sturdy'' shoes to minimise her chance of falling over. She said of her Jimmy Choo footwear: ''I gotta make sure they're sturdy, they can handle the stage. ''They're ready to make a montage of me just falling and falling and falling and falling, just over and over again. It's something you have dub-stepped to a song of something.'' And the 'Awkward' star had spent hours practicing walking in her shoes ahead of the prestigious show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. She added to 'Access Hollywood': ''I will not [fall. I've been practicing. We had rehearsals yesterday and I walked in my heels and I think I've got it down. »
“Drinking With the Stars” has been the unofficial mantra of the Golden Globes since long before it was the name of our video series.
Just hours before the Golden Globes telecast, we sat down with Miss Golden Globe Greer Grammer and Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma inside The Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom, where the stars and other industry artists and luminaries will congregate Sunday night for the awards ceremony.

A month from now, are you even going to remember who won the Golden Globes? And should you? After all, it's not like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the little group of entertainment journalists who give out the prizes, have loads of credibility, either as Oscar and Emmy prognosticators or as discerning film and TV critics.
But they do put on a heck of an awards show. This year's gala, the HFPA's 72nd, boasts a pair of popular and funny emcees, a glamorous gathering of TV and movie stars, a tribute to a certain Hollywood royal, and the possibility that the event's free-flowing alcohol and relaxed vibes will lead to something spontaneous and memorable happening. Oh yeah, and Sunday's proceedings will also offer a small hint at what could win at the Oscars in February. Here, then, are some things likely to catch your eye at the 2015 Golden Globes ceremony. »

ABC Family is expanding its comedy slate.
The Disney cabler has ordered two original single-camera comedy pilots, “Kevin From Work” and “Tough Cookie,” Karey Burke, exec VP of programming and development, said Tuesday.
“Single-camera comedies represent an evolution of our comedy brand, and we look forward to building a successful single-camera comedy franchise to match the success we’re having with multi-cam comedies,” said Burke.
“Kevin From Work” is described as a workplace comedy about a young man who professes his love to a co-worker before he he accepts another job, only to find out that his offer has been rescinded and he’s stuck with his crush. Barbie Adler, a co-exec producer of “How I Met Your Mother,” wrote the pilot and exec produces with Aaron Kaplan and McG, who is also on board to direct.

The people may love em', but they don't love their fashion. Sad to say some of our favorite gals ranked on the People's Choice Awards all-time worst dressed list, namely Jessica Alba. Before she consistently made the best-dressed list, she had a major floral mishap on the Pca red carpet back in 2001. And Paris Hilton suffered a serious fashion faux in 2013, wearing a hypnotizing green Mary Katrantzou mini. Awkward actress Molly Tarlov looked, well, awkward in a caped black gown at last year's show. Even Beauty and the Beast star Kristin Kreuk missed the mark in 2013 with a busy one-shoulder tulle and sequined dress. And let's not forget about Jennifer Love Hewitt's shiny cerulean strapless »
