Last night on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, Karl Dargan tried desperately to explain why he was up after midnight talking to another woman. I must say, he is totally committed to lying and denying everything to his wife.  The experts question why Lil Mo would stay in this marriage. Dr. Ish brings out photographic evidence from the cameras that captured his moment of infidelity with a woman he claimed was his “sister.” Lil Mo leaves her meeting with the experts and shares the photo and the story with the whole house. Most would be embarrassed, but she doesn’t seem to be!

Lil Mo realizes Karl never came to bed and is asleep on the couch downstairs. She brings him back to their room to get some answers. Karl goes back to sleep to deflect from the conversation. The next morning, they engage in a shouting match. Things take a turn for the worst when Karl tries to slam the door on Lil Mo as she tries to confront him. He is clearly in denial and wants to ignore the problem rather than discuss it. They both step away from the camera. She begs Karl to say something to give her peace of mind. I was sad to see her so desperate to be loved. She let him publicly embarrass and disrespect her and their relationship. She gives him an out and even kisses him, despite him admitting the truth. SMH….

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Reunion Recap:

I cannot believe we’re already to the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion! Last night’s first installment of the ladies’ sit down with Andy Cohen was reality gold…and pewter and bronze and silver. Their gowns were like a medal ceremony in the Envy by Melissa Gorga Olympics. Also, whoever told Jackie Goldscheider that the attire was cleavage optional is clearly getting the last laugh. But at least Jackie’s least likely to have a wardrobe malfunction when being screamed at by the first eight seasons’ Teresa Giudice who throws tables punches instead of rolling with them. Shockingly, Jennifer Aydin has her girls under wraps as well, although she does arrive in a Rocky-style blinged-out boxing robe. Of course, she does.

 

Andy welcomes the newbies before questioning Teresa about Joe Giudice’s impending deportation. Teresa is clearly upset, but they table the discussion for later in the reunion. He continues schmoozing the RHONJ cast before complimenting Margaret Josephs’ facelift. He even gets Dolores Catania to admit to butt implants with her own fat. Jackie shares she had a tummy tuck after giving birth to two sets of twins. Margaret also reveals that she and husband Joe Beningo shower together every morning.

Survivor: Edge of Extinction Premiere Recap: First Impressions

What’s that you say? Survivor is still on the air? And – GASP! – it just started its 38th season??? If this sounds familiar, than you are either a Survivor fan who has had this conversation countless times in your life while explaining your obsession to your non-Survivor friends, or you are a non-Survivor friend who is legitimately wondering how – after 19 YEARS – this show is still on TV. Well, let me explain it to you briefly: It’s because Survivor is THE best Reality-TV Competition Show, the grand-daddy of them all, and is still bringing it…Every. Single. Time.

If you don’t believe it’s still on, or you trying to do quick math trying to figure out how it could have had 38 seasons, you may also be surprised to find out that it is not just on the air, but it’s also STILL winning its time-slot in all of the major demographics. Add to this, that it has some of the most loyal, dedicated fans of any television show. Yes, Survivor has been on the…ahem…”edge of extinction” many times in the past, with rumors that the show would end countless times over the years, but still it prevails. The key format of the game is still intact, but it has evolved drastically since the days of Richard Hatch, Sue Hawk or Rudy Boesch…in today’s game, 46 is now “old,” and a simple alliance won’t cut it…you need to be thinking four, and five steps ahead. And now entering Season 38, we’ve been spoiled with some of the very best Survivor seasons of all-time over the past couple years, showing that Survivor will endure for many more years to come.

So you might as well give in and join the party! Whether you’re a long-time fan of the show and have seen every episode since Season 1 (like me!), or whether you are returning to the show after taking some seasons (or some years) off…or even if you have decided to watch Survivor for the very first time: I welcome you! Now let’s dive in to the Premiere Episode of Survivor: Edge of Extinction and find out what all the hype is about!

As I do at the beginning of every recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s Premiere Episode of Survivor: Edge of Extinction. If you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode, this is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap. It is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.

Lisa Vanderpump - Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills was a filler episode of wealthy women doing what Bravo wants us to believe wealthy women do: shopping and pastry decorating in between filming PSAs about parental abandonment (aka empty nesting) and eating disorders coinciding with the launch of your Instagram modeling career.

Things begin with Kyle Richards driving Lisa Vanderpump to Dr. Ourian‘s office. Dr. Ourian is the plastic surgeon to Kardashians and also Brielle Biermann’s lips, so you know… do what you will with that. Then book an appointment with Paul Nassif immediately afterward.

Anyway, Lisa takes a hit of laughing gas, which according to her “is like drinking a whole bottle of wine without the hangover” and gets her neck tightened. Kyle videos the whole procedure, and LVP explains that laughing with Kyle is necessary for her as she deals with the loss of her brother.

On last night’s episode of Married at First Sight, decision day was quickly approaching and the couples explored each other’s past to prepare for the future. Dr. Jessica Griffin gives each person an assignment to walk down memory lane and share a traumatic experience or introduce family and friends.

Kristine Killingsworth and Keith Dewar discuss the resentment he had for his dad growing up. Kristine shares her ex-fiance was controlling and wanted her to be a housewife, despite her career aspirations. As she talked to Keith, she realized their relationship is similar to her having to do all of the housework. She questioned whether they share the housework and Keith’s response is “I didn’t expect so many dishes.” It is clear Kristine is starting to feel like the updated version of his grandmother. Her frustration is apparent during a tense conversation about their dynamic. She even tells him she isn’t going to be the breadwinner and the person who solely takes care of the home. I totally agree, I think anyone would start to get annoyed by his childlike behavior. I guess he wasn’t lying when he said he was a lazy couch potato.

Kristen Doute - Vanderpump Rules

I’ll tell you a secret: you will not find your answers in life by going to the Disney World of Yolanda Hadid’s Lyme Brain, aka Solvang (a pretend version of a Dutch village) and drinking until you fall on your ass in an unflattering romper repurposed from vintage prison uniforms. Just ask the ladies of Vanderpump Rules who tried just that!

Likewise you will not improve your life or your relationship by having a guy’s night at a hotel where you pretend you’re just picking up chicks for a single friend. That will instead make you realize you’re married to someone like Katie Maloney, who is wearing your balls as a ring on a string.

Briana's-mom

During last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Briana DeJesus’ youngest daughter, Stella had to be rushed to the hospital because of a bacterial infection that was affecting the mobility of her arm. Both Briana and her mother struggled to take care of her other daughter Nova as well. Nova doesn’t quite understand what is going on, but it is obvious she is missing her mother and sister.

Briana reveals Stella’s dad’s only response to her emergency surgery was to ask for updates about how she is doing. SMH. You would think he would want to come and see for himself since she is in the hospital. This is exactly why I think Briana needs to slow down with her relationships. She seems to make very bad decisions with the men in her life. This includes her current boo, who she is already rushing into a relationship with.

Real Housewives Of Atlanta - Porsha Williams Proposal

While Porsha Williams is headed towards the altar, NeNe Leakes is headed towards the divorce court – again – on Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

It was a night of changes galore for the ladies of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. And despite what Japanese fortunes may have predicted, everyone’s lives were shifting and sliding in various directions. Just like the empty old wine bottles Cynthia Bailey wants to affix to the walls of her new wine bar.

I mean Jesus told Cynthia to do it and she is a “prayer of Jesus” who says recycle thy juice of the holy spirit. Or maybe that’s just Cynthia’s way of hiding how much wine she and her fellow Housewives consume?
