After watching an absolutely crazy season full of highs and lows, Married At First Sightdecision day is finally here! Get your snacks or cocktails and let’s discuss this episode. I’m not going to lie there are at least two couples that I hope they break up for their sanity and mine as well. This has been one of the craziest seasons since the inception of the show. We have watched everything from textbook manipulation, forced chemistry, and freakouts to awkward romantic moments. Get ready for some surprise decisions you didn’t see coming!
The experts speak with Stephanie Sersen and AJ Vollmoellerfirst, about their experience during the experiment. Of course, AJ tries to deflect from his grown man tantrums by saying that they both have been frustrated. Umm…I think we only saw Stephanie patiently deal with your constant Grinch-like behavior. AJ chooses to not eat dinner alone ever again and stay with his handler, Stephanie. Her decision is what I am waiting to hear. Please have the courage to run and never look back Steph!
It all ends badly, but we start out lovely by watching Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers open their wedding presents. I wished we could’ve seen them unwrap the tequila from Dorit Kemsley, but alas Dorit probably ‘conveniently forgot’ the wedding gift, just like she conveniently forgets to tell her so-called close friend that she gave her dog away to a woman she kinda knows, or doesn’t know, or is an associate of PK’s or is you know, a shelter named A Very Lovely Random Woman.
The only drama was drunk Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark cry-whining at each other about their relationship values (aka – when, where and at what time it’s acceptable to get wasted), and Beau is so the guy who wipes his snot with the back of his hand, or the corner of his pillow, instead of using a tissue. And Stassi she is so the type who uses an actual human to wipe her snot and blow her nose on, because people are no better than Kleenex. Like Stassi said, “I never get FOMO,” because in Stassi’s world she causes the FOMO. GET THE MEMO, BEAU!
Last night on Married to Medicine LA, the drama continues from Shanique Drummond’s shocking announcement about Asha Kamali-Blankinship’s husband possibly cheating. I am still confused as to why Asha is still playing the victim when SHE opted to attend a party where her husband’s ex was also in attendance. After storming out on the ladies, she returns and demands that Dr. Imani Walker make Shanique apologize. I think Imani has enough problems of her own. She may not be the best candidate to play peacemaker. Shanique obliges and apologizes for the implication of cheating.
Jazmin Johnson addresses Imani’s comment comparing her home to one that a drug dealer would have. Jazmin is deeply offended by her ignorant comment. She doesn’t feel Imani would have made that comment if her husband wasn’t black. She also reminds her that despite her husband and her being in the same profession, everyone is not at the same level of success. Imani angrily denies that her comments had anything to do with race. Imani, girlllllll….that was one of the most ignorant, hateful comments I have ever heard after being welcomed into someone’s home. Just admit that you were wrong and apologize! Shanique and Jazmin have had enough of the back and forth and get their designer bags and leave. Asha, in her usual dramatic fashion, plays victim and cries on cue. I honestly believe where there is smoke, there is fire. I don’t think Asha would care this much about an ex or what anyone thought if she was secure in her marriage.
I don’t know when and where this development occurred, since I don’t feel like we’ve heard a word about this all season, but suddenly Cynthia Bailey is launching a wine cooler collection with Seagrams – which seems like it was really a ruse to launch the return of Kenya Moore. I mean, who could hate on a heavily pregnant lady, right? Oh, wait, NeNe Leakes could!
I have been racking my brain about where NeNe and Kenya’s latest issues stemmed from. NeNe finally confirmed they started over a random twitter question posed to Kenya that was the Bravo equivalent of Marry, Shag, Kill, except it was “Call, Text, Delete” between Porsha Williams, Andy Cohen, or NeNe. Of course, Kenya picked NeNe as her “delete.” So THIS is the origin of the animosity.
Pretty much every season of Survivor, the “merge episode” stands out as one of the best. It’s exciting, sometimes nerve-racking, but always entertaining, not to mention that it always stands as a pivotal moment for the game’s overall trajectory. Tonight’s merge episode was all of that and then some, but for different reasons than normal. That’s because the fun of the merge was largely overshadowed by the episode’s first 15-minutes, where this season’s “Edge of Extinction” twist finally came to fruition.
And it was awesome. It was epic. And it thoroughly gave me those Survivor butterflies that I so love to feel.
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 Episode 7 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.

On last night’s episode of Married At First Sight, the couples only had three days to make their final decision on their marriages. The experts have asked them all to watch their wedding video to remind them why they decided to do the experiment. They could have saved time and public embarrassment by just joining Match or eHarmony. But I don’t mind sitting watching the shit show unfold as I eat popcorn and take bets on who will stay together.
Stephanie Sersen takes AJ Vollmoeller to the gym for a group workout. AJ literally whines and throws a tantrum the entire time because he is out of shape. He doesn’t even try to attempt to do any of the exercises and complains he “won’t be able to move all week.” We have all seen AJ and his man boobs on camera and I’m sure Stephanie was trying to give him a hint. Frustrated and out of his comfort zone, he storms out of the class with mommy Stephanie running after him. I just can’t with this guy, he better not have gotten too accustomed to eating dinner with someone. I have a feeling he could be back to standing and eating alone, shortly. I must say, he is probably one of the most uncoordinated people I have ever seen. Stephanie, girl, you can be honest with me, is he satisfying you in the bedroom? With that poor showing of endurance in the gym, I would think not. #Gross.
