I’m watching this a day late because I have no idea what shows are on on what day and time anymore… And now I have Marrying Millions to add to the mix.
Not sure about anyone else, but if my stranger, five day old husband lost his wedding ring by accidentally dropping it on the beach, I wouldn’t take an attitude about it like Iris did. Her “freaking out” was ridiculous and unhelpful. Help him look for it. It’s not like he wanted to drop it and possibly lose it.
Elizabeth saying “Fuck you, Jamie,” reminded me of a friend of mine who was relaying a story about her husband. She had planned a surprise party for him finishing his degree in his 40s and when they go to the restaurant, he noticed his sister’s car was right outside and his other sister’s van right next to it. He looked at his wife and said, “You’re an asshole,” and laughed. I have to say that I was startled to hear that. I know all relationships are different but I would never, ever say that to my husband even in a joking way and he would never say that to me. Not judging on anyone. It was just so jarring. I felt for Jamie when she said that to him but another part of me understands why Elizabeth was so furious. Imagine truly feeling completely nauseated and stressed and your husband saying to you— in front of a group of others— “You’re so dramatic.” Not smart, Jamie.
If we took a shot every time Amber said “husband,” we’d all be passed out less than 30 minutes into the show. He looks completely disinterested in her. If he was in love with her, he would not be having any conversations about possibly signing another contract to play b-ball in another country. His comments sound like things he rehearsed and memorized or something.
I have a problem with Amber telling Matt that she makes enough to take care of a family so he won’t have to leave. If he loved her, he would take a local job or a course or something in order to stay with her. Did she turn over her paycheck to her previous boyfriend to keep him too? Color me confused. Amber’s selfie cam video said that Matt told her that she humiliated him about the money and made it sound like he was broke. He said nothing remotely close to that on the camera when they were talking. I think there’s a lot of Matt we don’t see. I get sort of an angry vibe there. Maybe he’s internally angry because he never hit it big in sports and has the added stress of whatever is going on in his family. I don’t know but their whole encounter was just weird to me.
I’m not seeing the problem with Greg having been engaged and living with someone before. Not everyone swears off dating for their entire 20s because their high school relationship didn’t work out. I don’t understand Deonna using the word “hurt” to describe how she feels about him having had a fiance before. I was more concerned that Greg said he had “control issues” and a toxic relationship that required therapy. Should be interesting to see how this progresses as it seems Deonna’s walls are beginning to crumble.
