Juan Pablo's Bachelor Blog: A Good Week on the Show, a Tough Week Off It

Originally posted 01/21/2014 10:30AM

Juan Pablo Galavis, former pro soccer player, single father and star of this season's The Bachelor, is blogging for PEOPLE.com each week about the ladies, the dates and the difficult decisions he faces. This week he also addresses his controversial comments about the idea of a gay Bachelor. Since those remarks, Galavis has apologized and agreed to meet with GLAAD members as well as LGBT Latinos and their families. You can also follow Juan on Twitter @JuanPaGalavis.

It was a little hard to start writing after all that has happened during the past few days. I thank you for coming and reading my blog ...

My apology was not enough, so I guess time and my actions will let people know who I really am and my thoughts about how much I respect gay people.

On the show, at least, this was my favorite week.

Juan Pablo Galavis has issued an apology following his commentary about the idea of a gay Bachelor.

At a TCAs party on Friday, Galavis said that a gay version of The Bachelor would be a bad example for children.

"I respect [gay people], but honestly I don't think it's a good example for kids to watch that on TV," Galavis – a single dad to 4-year-old daughter Camila – told Sean Daly from The TV Page.

On Saturday, he issued a statement on his Facebook page to clarify the remarks.

Did French President's Affair Send First Lady to the Hospital for 'Rest'?

Originally posted 01/13/2014 05:45PM

France's unofficial first lady Valérie Trierweiler, companion to President François Hollande, is in the hospital amid reports that he has been cheating on her with actress Julie Gayet.

Trierweiler was admitted Jan. 10 for "rest and some tests," her office announced Sunday. Press reports say the cause is either "stress" or "intense blues."

The assumed source of her blues? Revelations that Hollande, 59, a lifelong bachelor has been seeing popular French actress Julie Gayet, 41, even as he is living with Trierweiler, 48, his official companion since 2007.

A journalist for Paris Match, Trierweiler has been France's de facto first lady since Hollande's election, enjoying semi-official status as well as an Elysée office and five-person staff at taxpayer expense.

Dwyane Wade fathered a son during a temporary split from his now-fiancée Gabrielle Union earlier this year, Entertainment Tonight reports.

The actress, 41, was aware of the child before she accepted the Miami Heat guard's proposal on Dec. 21, a source tells the show, and the pair have worked through the issue privately. Wade, 31, has known the baby's mother for years and recently visited with his new son.

Wade spoke to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show in September about the break from Union, whom he had dated since 2009. The separation was largely due to the demands of their work lives, he explained.
