The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe opens up about getting intimate with a suitor and stands by her decision. Subscribe now to hear what she has to say about having sex on the show in this exclusive interview, only in PEOPLE!

Kaitlyn Bristowe is the Bachelorette! She charmed her way into the hearts of the Bachelor Nation – and nearly the Bachelor himself, Chris Soules, on season 19 of The Bachelor. Now Kaitlyn has begun her own journey to love.

I really, really wanted to chirp Ian ruthlessly, but I didn't have to. He did enough damage himself. I understand that it doesn't feel good when feelings aren't reciprocated, but try and exit with some dignity. I have nothing more to say about Ian; I've already wasted enough time on him. Men Tell All should be fun.

I know no one will ever understand how hard rose ceremonies are. They always come after a week of being emotionally drained. And while having the rose ceremony at The Alamo was amazing, I couldn't really take it in knowing the difficult decision ahead of me.

Enter Nick. Talk about uncomfortable. He just walked right into the lion's den, and I could feel the tension through the TV. It was actually pretty tough for me to watch because I really saw with my own eyes how much the guys cared. Joshua was so sweet when he questioned Nick calling me a "cool chick." He is such a good, ol' fashioned country boy. I never ever meant to be disrespectful to Joshua or any of the other guys by having Nick stay. I just had to follow my heart, and my heart told me to give Nick a chance.

It's also such a strange world where it's okay for me to "explore my options" while the guys are only there for me. Actually in this case NOT all of them were there for me and they TOO explored options. (If you recall there were two Bachelorettes!) And I am so sorry that a lot of people see a problem with this. But there was an attraction with Nick, and I had to pursue it. I was still getting to know these guys, it didn't feel too late, and this was something I just had to do.

Amber Marchese Blogs About the Moment When Cancer Made Her Feel 'Totally Alone'

Amber Marchese Blogs About the Moment When Cancer Made Her Feel 'Totally Alone'

Amber Marchese, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey , is blogging about her second battle with cancer for PEOPLE. After surviving breast cancer in 2009, she discovered a lump, which turned out to be cancerous, in her right breast in April. Marchese will share updates on her treatment and how she is coping with this second round of the deadly disease with prayer, a positive outlook and the help of her family.

If you read my blog last week, you know I left off at a point where the doctors had to determine the Stage to which my disease progressed. As I said last week, the first step before determining your treatment is Staging your disease. My amazing oncologist, Dr. Michael Nissenblatt, began ordering a gamut of tests to see if and or how far the cancer spread. My first scan was a full body PET scan (positron emission tomography (PET) scan. The PET scan uses a radioactive substance to identify cells rapidly metabolizing sugar. Why do we care about sugar? That was my question.

Simply put, cancer cells grow at an accelerated rate and require a food source, so cells that are rapidly metabolizing sugar are growing (more on nutrition and cancer in a later blog). The PET scan identifies spots of increased activity. The cells that burn sugar are called "hot spots" because they literally glow on the scan, with a tumor glowing as it grows much faster than normal cells. Before you look at your PET scan and freak out, half your organs should glow! Remember many of your organs (like your heart) better have activity, or you are literally dead.

So my husband Jim and I drove to the radiology center. It was clear day, and the sky was blue, but I only know this because my husband told me – I was lost in thought.

These cliffhangers are really giving me some good material to work with for the beginning of my blogs!

Let's sum things up. I quit Clint. Clint quit JJ. The romance and the bromance are officially over. Short-lived, I know. There were just too many red flags with Clint. He was great on our one-on-one date but terrible in a group setting. And I really need a guy who can hang and be social in big groups of people. Clint definitely struggled with that. And no one except for JJ had nice things to say about him. Oh, how awkward was that when JJ asked Clint for an apology?! That was so uncomfortable! And then they almost got into a fight! I had heard through the grapevine that they almost came to blows, but I had no idea it was that close! Way too much testosterone. Toodeloo, Clint. At least we'll always have that drawing of Chris Harrison riding a triceratops!

Just like I didn't see Clint and JJ almost coming to blows, I don't always see or hear about everything that happens in the Bachelor mansion. Sometimes all I had to go with was my gut and my heart. Sometimes I was right. Sometimes I was wrong. When it came to Kupah and Clint, I was dead-on. But it really was a tough job trying to figure out which relationships needed more time and which relationships already had all the time they deserved. And that night it felt like all the relationships needed more time, especially after the Clint drama took up most of the night. So I took it upon myself to cancel the rose ceremony and bring all of the guys to New York City. Yeah, I broke the rules. It won't be the last time. Stay tuned for more rule-breaking later this season!

Kacy Catanzaro is competing for a third season on American Ninja Warrior. She made history last season by becoming the first female competitor to reach the top of the 14-ft. warped wall and also became the first and only woman to earn a spot to the Las Vegas finals by completing a city finals course.

Failure can be defined by lack of success. But is it necessarily a bad thing? Life tells us you can learn from failure and can make you stronger if you don't let it tear you down.

American Ninja Warrior 5 in Venice Beach was my first season competing on the show, and I made it to the fifth obstacle, which is right before the warped wall. I knew no woman had completed a qualifying course before and was so close to accomplishing my goal. Even though I failed to complete the course, I used that failure to fuel my training for the next season.

With the guidance of Brent Steffensen, I stepped up my training for season 6 and hit the jackpot in the Dallas qualifiers. I was the first woman in American Ninja Warrior history to defeat the 14-foot warped wall and finish a qualifying course. I was on top of the world and soon reached another huge goal when I finished the City Finals course as well, which was also the first for a woman. The feeling of completing those courses was indescribable elation. What others thought was impossible, I now knew was doable.

Failure. Success. Failure. Success. Failure.

Kupah ... ohhhhh, Kupah. Well that escalated quickly!

Before we dive in, let me start off with a tip, if I may, for any guys out there reading my blog: When a woman says the connection is gone, don't tell her how hot she is. A connection is more than someone's appearance. Kupah was going down fast, and I think he knew it. I'm not entirely sure what Kupah was getting at (you'll have to ask him for clarity), but I hadn't been the one ignoring him; he'd been the one ignoring me! If you recall, he'd spent our entire date ignoring me! And let's not forget that it was only the second week, and I was struggling to juggle 19 relationships. Oh, and he was clearly more interested in Britt. (There's that.) That, Kupah, is really why you probably didn't feel a connection.

After the altercation with him in front of the house, I didn't feel the need to continue the cocktail party. Kupah had ruined not only my mood but also the mood of the entire party. Altogether it was an emotional night, and I just wanted it to be over. The rose ceremony was difficult to get through and deciding to send home Cory was not an easy choice. I actually had a really tough time with that decision because I felt all the things I wanted to feel with Cory, but something in my gut was telling me he wasn't my husband, and I didn't want to keep him from his daughter if I had any doubt. He is such a sweetheart, and I really thought in that moment, "How the hell am I going to do this every week? It's only the second week, and I am already so sad to say goodbye. Uh-oh."

American Ninja Warrior defines the word "obstacle" as something that interferes with progress. Ah, such as in life as well.

The obstacles that make up this Kansas City qualifying course are very physically demanding while obstacles in life can be more emotionally challenging. No matter. We all learn that it's not the obstacles that define us but, rather, how we navigate them and go forward. What Ninja does is put those obstacles right in front of us where we can see them and then challenges us to figure out how to move past them.

There are plenty of obstacles that can interfere in our everyday lives. Some are physical, like an injury, disability or illness. Other are more difficult to define, such as family or work pressure, stress, fear, failure and so much more. Everyone approaches these differently, and all at their own pace. Some may need help from others, while others might want to tackle them solo.

Waking up that next morning as the Bachelorette was a surreal feeling. There was so much happening that first night, I think it was still taking its time to sink in. I mean, it's not every day you wake up in a beautiful house with Chris Harrison knocking at your door. But I will admit, I was so relieved to see him. There was a lot to process, and having him there to help talk me through it was much needed.

I couldn't believe that in just one night connections had already begun to develop. And there I sat, lucky enough to be the Bachelorette and eagerly awaiting my first week of dates. In the back of my mind, I had to wonder, Which of these guys voted for Britt and who voted for me? And how was Britt doing? But I couldn't allow those thoughts to take over. I had a great group of guys ready to kick these dates off with, and that's where my focus needed to be.
