Last night, Tamron Hall tackled a two hour Sister Wives special. She’s a braver woman than I am! The Browns revisit the season, from Meri divorcing Kody so he can marry Robyn and adopt her children. Robyn and Kody share their opposing views about whether they should have celebrated their marriage license with more pomp and circumstance, and Tamron calls out Kody for caring about the family’s critics. Tamron asks if Kody legally marrying Robyn legitimizes her as more of a wife. Janelle argues that Meri was legitimized legally and defends Robyn against her detractors who think she’s put a diabolical plan into action. Robyn has a difficult time watching herself breakdown over whether her ex-husband would terminate his parental rights. Kody sheds tears of happiness watching the adoption footage, and Tamron questions if Meri felt detached throughout the adoption process. She admits that she was disengaged throughout filming, but her attitude had nothing to do with her family.
Robyn’s pregnancy announcement is highlighted, and she and Meri joke about their plan to have Meri relay the news. Janelle admits she was in shock…she expected Meri to say she wasn’t going back to school or had cancer. No middle ground for Janelle! Robyn beams about how exciting her pregnancy is through the eyes of the other children. Tamron opines that Kody is already stretched thin with so many kids, but Christine interjects, stating that when it comes to Kody’s time, it’s quality not quantity. Kody reminds Tamron he doesn’t golf, so he’s got plenty of time to spend with his brood. Sure. Christine’s meds are working overtime as she gushes about their couples retreat, complete with two counselors and “stupid rock building.” I love this Christine. She laughs throughout the footage, but I get the feeling she’s about to burst into tears.
This week’s 90-Day Fiance should be titled: I’m Marrying a Weird Guy. Which is, verbatim, what 19-year old Nikkisays when asked about her 58-year old fiance Mark. Should we just end the recap there? It says it all, really. Nah. Let’s go ahead and hop on this crazy train and see where it heads!
Feeling alone and adrift, Nikki needs to get out of Mark’s1980s shrine to his first wife house, so she calls the only other person she knows in the US: Mark’s 21-year old daughter, Elise. Being a good sport is what Elise does best, apparently, because she agrees to go shopping with Nikki for some girl time, and some girl talk. They are, after all, the same age. And they both think Dad is possibly a few fruit loops short of a full bowl. After the gals giggle over a tragic macrame dress in a local shop that could pass for beach wedding dress, a clerk asks Nikki if she plans on a beach wedding? Stumped, Nikki plays possum while Elise jumps in: “They’re not quite sure…yet.” The innocent clerk asks Nikki if she’s marrying her best friend? Nikki’s facial expression is like, please b*tch. Followed by the most honest answer we’ve heard from any of these couples yet. “I’m marrying a weird guy,” she deadpans. Three cheers for Nikki!
Take us back to dock, Jimmy Buffett…”I used to rule my world from a pay phone and ships out on the sea; but now times are rough, and I got too much stuff–can’t explain the likes of me. But there’s this one particular harbor, so far but yet so near; where I see the days as they fade away, and finally disappear.” Thanks for joining us for Below Deck’s final voyage on the Eros, at least for this season. Can we say cray-cray? Thank goodness Captain Lee Rosbach was able to keep is alpha cool among all the chaos!
The episode begins with Amy Johnson and Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow warning Emile Kotze that confronting Eddie Lucas about his spin cycle affair with Rocky is a bad idea. Well, Amy is doing most of the warning…Rocky is licking her chops and trying to hide her “my plan is working!” grin. Rocky then asks is Amy is jealous of laundry room liaisons with Eddie given Amy’s long-time crush on the bosun. There’s nothing like salt in the wound, right readers? The confusing charter guests are in full swing. Who are these girls? Why did these two guys who are clearly getting nada from their ladies paying for them to be on a chartered yacht? The girls look at the two primary guests as photographers who can capture their every moment flanked by Emile and Eddie.
Last night on Vanderpump Rules we got a little taste ofLala Kent, the manipulative little she-houdini. We also got a glimpse of Scheana Marie‘s marriage when her keeping up appearances failed. Then Lisa Vanderpump called Ken “the big cock” and all else was forgotten!
Lisa takes Scheana and Katie Maloney shopping for new SUR uniforms because she now wants her survers to look like 1950’s diner waitresses. The true intention, however, was Lisa putting the kibosh on how Scheana and Katie have been treating pooooooor, whiiiddle sweet Lala, of the Britney Spears Academy For The Not That Innocent (she got straight A’ss).
Something tells me that we aren’t going to see any of the runway shenanigans featured on last night’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywoodduring Fashion Week! This crew can’t have even the simplest event without major drama. Even back-to-school shopping is more than just backpacks and tiny jeans.
The episode begins with Lil’ Fizz and Moniece clothes shopping for Cameron before he starts kindergarten. Fizz is thrilled to finally be co-parenting with his ex, and he’s got a plan that good benefit both of them…he wants Moniece to be the featured girl in his upcoming video that Nikki declined. Moniece is happy to oblige but she’s confused by the emotions that are starting to resurface, especially given how much she loves Rich Dollaz. She presses Fizz about his dating life, and when Moniece learns he’s seeing Nikki, she realizes he’s just going for the low hanging fruit. Ray J is still moping over his break-up Princess, so he seeks advice from his friend Max. No matter how many hotties Ray may find in a club, no one compares to Princess. She’s changed him. While Ray used to cheat 90% of the time (that’s two girls a week, according to him), now he’s only cheating 5%…and most of that is just him watching porn. Wow, he’s such a catch!
Here’s what I have to say about this season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta: I think I’m gonna like it here. This season things are progressing – storylines are moving. We are no longer subjected to the same tired fake feuds and the men are messier than the Housewives. Is that Bravo’s version of feminism?
Last night we met Kim Fields, and I am so happy she did not appear during Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield arguing over who is the most broke. Let’s be honest: it’s a tie! Like, I wouldn’t bet a half-finished glass of Franzia on the these two getting their houses finished in a timely manner. They oughtta both get some luxury RVs and plop them on their respective properties. Or pool their resources to construct a Chatfaux SheMoore Messor.
The clock is ticking on each couple’s short window of time on 90-Day Fiance as they plumb the very shallow depths of how well – or how little – they know each other before walking down the aisle. This week’s episode gives us another glimpse into the vast expanse of years that stretches between 58-year old Markand 19-year old Nikki, who face an awkward conversation in front of Mark’s family about future kids…or lack thereof. Speaking of kids, I’ll start this recap with a quote from my 5-year old daughter as she watched literally 30 seconds of a sneak peek of this episode: “Why does that girl want to marry her grandpa?” she wondered. Yip. Mommy doesn’t know, honey. But let’s find out! #mouthsofbabes #kindergartenwisdom
Nikki is not feeling well, but Mark is hopeful she’ll rally to come dine with Mark’s sister, niece, and nephew, who are visiting for breakfast. Mark says Nikki has “put him on notice;” she wants him to spend more time with her and less time talking creepily about his ex-wife working. He’s crossing his fingers that he can make her happy, and apparently, his master plan includes pancakes!
I can’t wait to see the numbers that tuned into last night’s Sister Wives to witness Meri’s anticlimactic catfish confession. The episode begins with the Browns still on an Alaska high after a fun-filled family vacation on TLC’s dime, and Christine is thrilled at how well the kids got along…and the wives too! Janelle is glad that her oldest children’s significant others could join the crew. Maddie’s boyfriend Caleb is a bit nervous to have “the talk” with Kody. Before he bites the bullet, he and Madison are sneaking away for a double date with Logan and his girlfriend Michelle. Logan reveals that dating has been hard for him because people seem to automatically assume he wants to be a polygamist. While he loves his family, he only wants one wife.
Over dinner, Michelle admits that she found meeting Kody to be intimidating, but Caleb? Not so much. Caleb and Logan both assure their significant others that they are one-woman guys. Michelle and Caleb both enjoy the dynamic of all the mothers. Madison believes that not having multiple mothers will be the oddest part of raising her own kids. Janelle thinks that all of the Brown children feel grateful for their different upbringing, and she knows there were times her kids likes Meri and Christine more than they liked her. Robyn finds it funny that the parents are putting so much pressure on Kody and Maddie to get married, but they hold back when it comes to Logan and Michelle. She wants everyone to take a chill pill until they are certain Caleb is ready to tie the knot. Thanks, Robyn. As always, your opinion is the most important. Where is the sarcasm font when you need it?
