210. The Secret To Good Communication In A Relationship w/ Tayshia Adams
Even after 15 seasons, @Tayshia Adams still stunned critics and audiences during her tenure as @TheBachelorette.   Tayshia wasn't afraid to play by her own rules, even in a franchise with two decades of established traditions, tropes, and conventions. Instead, she bravely asked questions about this current cultural moment, and what her identity is within that moment.  She stood up for what she believed in, and she confronted conflict head on when the situation asked for it. Naysayers might write her off as just another reality TV star, but clearly, there's a LOT we can learn from Tayshia. I certainly have.   Tag a @Bachelorette superfan, and make sure you watch #BetterTogether w/ Maria everyday for a different side of your faves in pop culture!
