I feel like a fool for thinking the Clare Show would be a nice change with a mature woman, forgetting that maturity is not a number. What a hot mess she turned out to be, and it all showed up in one episode.
The love language date was so wrong, the men didn't understand that the "affirmations" were supposed to be about Clare not themselves, and Clare is so needy she somehow heard them as about her and cried over it.
Then we had Jason's therapy session. His parents should sue the show for telling the world their marriage is so bad both sons are ruined. All the time he and Clare were reading the negative words about themselves, I was remembering, "When people tell you who they are, believe them."
The strip dodge ball was equal parts wrong and silly.
Clare? They didn't stand up and have a fist fight over who would be first to "steal you for a minute" because they didn't get the signal yet. Doesn't this show have a stage director?
I blame Hannah Brown for most of this. She set records for popularity because she was always yelling at the men. I think Clare has got it in her head that's she's going to be the new "strong woman" only all she has to go with is that she was at her father's bedside when he died (as relatives often are) and her hissy fit at Juan Pablo.
She was so mad a that poor bewildered Brandon. She sent him home just for saying he wanted to be on the show because she was so beautiful and not saying it was because of her "drive" and "standing up for herself." Clare thinks everyone should be so impressed with the Juan Pablo thing, but we haven't forgotten that thirty seconds before she called him a horrible person who could never father her children, she was going to accept his proposal.
She likes all the guys I can't stand, like Blake, the rule breaker who talks like a little boy. He's the type who would break promises to his wife and then give her a bunch of flattering bull shit as a reason.
She likes Riley, the hot head who wanted to fight Yosef simply for saying, "I think I speak for all of us when I say we are all here for you," or some such. Riley may actually have the most in common with Clare, they both like making noise just for the attention.
Dale's not that into her.
What about that gleaming zipper up the back of Clare's blue dress? Are metal zippers making a come back?
