I'm now a nervous wreck worrying about poor Yolanda. She is lonely and naïve, has been out of the dating world for 30 years and has no idea what it's really like out there. I just want to wrap a blanket around her and guide her away from the internet, like you might do to someone who narrowly escaped a house fire. She's too good for this show, and I don't want to watch her get hurt. The guy on the phone sounded middle eastern to me, definitely NOT British, and also sounded like someone I would not be able to bear speaking to on the phone at all because he's mumbly and has no charisma. She could step out her front door and throw a rock in any direction and probably hit a man who is a better prospect than whatever is hiding behind those photos of "Williams". I agree that it's time for her to find a companion, especially once we learned that the last 6 years of her marriage her husband was in prison - she has been single and lonely for a very long time. I just watched a show on Netflix called Dating Around, and there was an older man in his 60's, widowed, who would have liked Yolanda so much and treated her wonderfully. But if what Yolanda wants is a younger man with a stripper body, that's going to greatly limit the pool of prospects for her.
I would feel bad for Ed if he hadn't cheated on his wife and fucked everything up himself. Not only is Rosalee younger than his daughter but she looks like an actual child, so him being so instantly attracted to her appearance grosses me out. If I saw a photo of a man who looked 12 years old, I would not think he was hot. And having her child call Ed "daddy" is as yucky as it has been every other time we have seen it on this show. These poor, confused children.
I loved the Russian friend who did not pull any punches whatsoever about why a young Russian woman would do whatever it takes to get to America, and that she is not envisioning a country life in Tennessee, but a glamorous city life that he isn't offering. It gets frustrating to see all of these people get excellent, accurate advice from everyone around them just to completely ignore it and do all the stupid shit anyway.
I'm horrified that Angela 2.0 is named Lisa because that is my name, too. A million of us were named Lisa after Elvis and Priscilla Presley named their daughter Lisa Marie - there were so many of us in school that teachers had to give us nicknames because one classroom might have as many as 6 Lisas in it. I am still in touch with a lot of Lisas from my childhood, I recently met a big crop of Lisas at a conference full of women in my age group, and I can tell you that as a general rule, we Lisas DO NOT look or behave like this one. She is a haggard mess, and I don't know why she bothered to not smoke in front of the cameras because one look and listen tells us she is a serious chain smoker. I can smell her from here! She might also be a pretty big drinker, those bags under her eyes make me think she partakes A LOT. The amount of smug confidence that she has because she believes she snagged herself a hot young Nigerian rap star is quite off-putting. She really has become convinced that she is something super hot and special to have landed this man, and that offering to have unsafe, hairless sex with him is all she needs to lock him down. She is a very unintelligent woman, and her personality does not make me feel protective over her the way I do for Yolanda. Whatever happens to Lisa with all of this nonsense is fine with me.
I'm not looking forward to Darcy, she doesn't even seem like a real person to me. She's like an overfilled blow-up doll that a mad scientist tried to make sentient, but all he managed to infuse into her was desperation, neediness, and the mission to FIND. LOVE.
