Longhorn ‘Bachelorette’ Rachel Lindsay plans to take her new fiancé to the Texas-OU game


It’s practically a rite of passage when you’re in a relationship with a Longhorn. 

Dallas native and University of Texas grad Rachel Lindsay, whose engagement to 37-year-old Bryan Abasolo was unveiled on the season finale of “The Bachelorette” on Monday night, will be putting her relationship to the test this fall by taking her new beau to the State Fair of Texas -- and yes, the Red River Showdown. 

"Yes, I'm going to take him to the state fair," Lindsay told GuideLive.com in an interview. "I'm a Longhorn, so I want to take him to the Texas-OU game and kill two birds with one stone."

Despite the backlash Lindsay has faced regarding her decision to choose the Miami chiropractor over runner-up and all-around-perfect-human Peter Kraus, at least she’s opening him up to a new burnt orange world.

The case for a breakfast feast

Many of us grab coffee and a quick bite in the morning and eat more as the day goes on, with a medium-size lunch and the largest meal of the day in the evening. But a growing body of research on weight and health suggests we may be doing it all backward. A recent review of the dietary patterns of 50,000 adults who are Seventh-day Adventists over seven...

Eggplant and tomato: It's the pasta sauce of summer

Southern Italy is deeply fond of eggplant. Throughout the country - but particularly within the regions around and south of Rome - it is fried, stuffed, layered and baked, smoked and pureed and preserved in oil.
