    But, from what I can tell, no one can even identify to whom Michael was allegedly referring. Robin said she thought she imagined the whole thing until Candiace brought it up again. I have problems with the ladies using Michael's suspected homosexual tendencies as a dagger against Ashley as well. It is the same to me as attempting to shame a woman because I know her husband sleeps with other women. Ashley has enough of her own questionable character traits for critique. Including Micheal's as part of her count in this way is tasteless, terrible, desperate and gross. I am surprised though that Candiace even has this amount of strategic thinking based on her inability to eek out a side hustle for herself. She knows that she can't take on Giselle or Karen successfully. Robin is a no go because Giselle will jump in and Monique is preggers and could still stomp her. So, Ashley is the wounded one in the pack who Candiace can try to take down. This is why she is so pissed about Monique attempting to mend fences with Asley. Since Candiace does not have any other job or much going on in her life except for mamma drama, an attempt at becoming a baby Giselle style mean girl is all that's left to keep her share of income coming in. I don't know her plan after this season though I suspect she doesn't have one. A baby and moving to a new home while pretending to emancipate from her mom seem like the next options for her storylines unless Bravo inserts a newer, younger cast member who actually has a career. That kind of casting seems unlikely though.

    Well, as codependent as they are, she kinda is.
  3. Got it. Thank you for the clarification. I was unsure whether you were intending to communicate Iris's feelings or your own view of her (or any other woman's) virginity.
  4. Regarding Deonna, she is the one that I think might (based on very limited information) be helped by having satisfying sex with Greg. I believe she needs the oxytocin released by affection and orgasm with a man she is committed to in order to aid in bonding with him. I think Greg is already sold and for him the emotional lubrication (sorry) provided by an active sex life with Deonna could help prolong his positive feelings in the face of some of her quirks. Jamie, on the other hand, has a tiger by the tail and probably will end up with much more than he bargained for in a sexual relationship with Elizabeth. She appears to need SO MUCH validation of her sexual allure and attractiveness and I do not think her needs can be fulfilled by one man. The upside is that she is obviously the aggressor so, hopefully that will deter her dad from murdering him. I actually commanded him to wear a condom and use every other contraceptive aid available to him because if he fathers a child with Jamie during this experiment...in the words of my mother, "Only the Lord [can save him]".
  5. I am trying to ask this in the most non-sarcastic way possible. Do you really mean virginity is Iris's greatest gift?

    S09.E01: Nice To Marry You

    He said he doesn't go to church nor is he interested in doing so when he was talking to the other black guy at the bachelor meet up, which I don't consider a problem but, most highly religious people do. The other guy looked kind of like "How Sway?" when Keith said it. I don't remember his exact words since it's been a week since I heard them. But, knowing this show, they will replay the scene 5 times before the season is finished so, it will come up again. 🙂 Maybe the couple will work out. I was using the pairing as an example of how I think the matches are made for TV more than real life.
  7. You did something rare on the internet and increasingly in life. 1) acknowledged a mistake. 2) did not lash out or take offense at the person who noticed and 3) finished your point. I like it and I agree that at the very least a darker hair color could benefit Kelsey. Upon looking at images, a lighter hair product like a curl cream or mousse could also be in order. I don't know what she currently uses but, the geled wet look I see does not translate well on tv. The hair is too close to her head to suit her facial features. A minor cut might also release some of the weight currently in her curls. I have fine curly hair too and embracing some of my natural frizz can make my hair appear thicker.

    No. I have never met anyone who is; just like having children. One can be more or less healthy than another but, I agree, no one is perfect. In my view, marriage is partially about matching issues in a way that both people can be complimented by the couplehood on the road to becoming who they want to be. So, putting a clearly sexually active, nonreligious man with a 27 year old virgin who has a very slim chance of being able to be a match for him in the arena of intimacy within 6 weeks is worthy of comment and observation. Again, I agree no one is perfect but, if observing "red flags" was outlawed, what the hell would we be discussing about the show on this forum?

    I am so glad I am not the only one who thought he is her fraternal twin with no hair. My husband tried to shame me as "mean" for these powers of stating FACTS. I thank you, Qtype.

    I have yet to hear a groom or any other man who is not a stylist comment on the pure whiteness of a wedding gown. I also have misgivings about them matching Iris with Keith when she expressed her desire for a Christian (church going) man. His family is full of pastors so, maybe that's enough. In many cases though, being a PK can make a person more likely to avoid church as an adult. Leading with "I'm a virgin" as one's defining identity characteristic is a red flag for me. I grew up with a lot of women who completely lost track of how to establish an adult identity because they previously leaned so heavily on the virgin, good girl persona. When you combine that with limited relationship experience, it sets a woman up for quite the letdown on the honeymoon and beyond. Many religious orgs prep girls for virginity and chastity but, then don't realize how hard it will be to turn that switch off once sexual relations are approved. Lastly, what is up with Iris's daddy? Lawd! He acts like the marriage will not be filmed and broadcast on national tv. It's not like she is marrying a stranger and launching into space for a 2 man Mars expedition.

    Fit is generally a problem on this show because of the lack of time to order a dress and do proper alterations. Many of the brides seem to also need more guidance regarding dress style as well.

    I agree that Elizabeth is annoying. I also would appreciate it if she would dress in a more complimentary color palette. I suggest she use Bryce Dallas Howard as inspiration for her future hair, makeup and clothing color decisions.

    He is probably an investor the way the Toms are investors in Tom Tom with Vanderpump. I hope that's not momma of Candiace's money too. Probably not or she would have definitely dropped that bomb by now. Chris probably saved is based on paying very little rent (if any).

    Mr. red12 and I were talking about the show and came to a judgement that Candiace has to have a truly terrible personality in order to be where she is in life. She is pretty (even with the terrible weaves), seems to have grown up in a privileged lifestyle exposed to the "right kinds of people" and still ended up marrying basically a restaurant manager for whom she will be the 3rd baby's mother if things work out. Men will put up with a lot for her looks, body and access to her mom's money. She really has to have no game, work ethic or soft skills to be where she is. I mean not even a fledgling pageant coach business or workout wear line? She hasn't even used her exposure from the show to get her Instagram influencer game up. No personal trainer certification or even flat tummy tea deal? I just don't understand how she doesn't know she has a very limited window and needs to get her shit together FAST.

    It's what my people used to refer to as "casket ready"; too light foundation, heavily powdered with a greyish tint and bright lipstick.
