S07.E12: I Do and I Don't Know

At least it was a “Louie” checkbook or knockoff. Actually it looked like a checkbook/wallet clutch which I think people still carry. 

I never use checks, but I have a few for online payments.  My checks are like 100 years old and don't have my current address......THATS how often I writer personal checks. 

Anyways I've decided that PSG is full of shit.  If she REALLY wanted to pay anny off she could have brought cold, hard cash and laid out fifteen grand in front of anny.  She would have been on the next flight out. 

Barring that, anny should have called PSGs bluff and demanded 2 million dollars.

No BOGO at Payless? 
Red heels at a wedding?

Payless is closing a massive number of stores.  He probably got those shoes for a song....or 75% off a song.  either that or they travelled back 5-10 years ago when that shoe was stylish.

@BallisticNikki - My ex will be 58 this spring.  Apparently he is getting remarried to a woman who is 56/57 - no kids for them, lol.  And I am far from involved with them - never met her, have no plans too and when I am in my former hometown I pray I never run into them, lol.  Just....don't need that energy in my life. 

I met my husband through his ex, we are all friends, in fact we are going out for his birthday next weekend, he even has a key to our house.

Not all relationships end with lasting bad feelings. If anything having known both of them a long time I know exactly why they broke up and think it is very reasonable in not inevitable that they did.

There's very little doubt in my mind that the producers tinkered with the Morsel and Anna story and yet no matter how many different ways they tinker with it, I'm still not interested. Get back to me if it turns out Morsel is already married to a sheep or something in Turkey.

I've concluded that Jasmin is just an asshole. 

And speaking of assholes, Tania. Holy crap. Imagine the nerve of standing there in a wedding dress saying, "How sure am I supposed to be? Nobody tells you!" How about at least as sure as you were about going to Costa Rica for a month to become a witch doctor? How about at least as sure as you are about wearing that hot pink shirt again for the 10th day in a row? Syngin's friend posing the question, "Is Tania worth it" elicited a very loud, almost involuntary "NO!"screamed at my TV. Tania's friend Alex was the only person in that scene who had a lick of sense. Strangely, I've begun to really dislike Tanya's mother. You would think I wouldn't have liked her because of her maniacal monitoring of her Jack Daniels, but I just don't like the way she comports herself, overall. She comes off like a bitch. Like the kind of Karen who always wants to speak to your manager.

I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I really liked Sequim Mike's K1 attorney. Her little wino decor in her office reminded me of attorneys that I've worked for. I can't imagine how frustrating being an immigration attorney must be in this political climate. I do not begrudge her her wine. She probably needs it after a day of dealing our state department.

I mentioned this in the live chat but it's worth pointing out again that porn granny, did not of her own volition bring her checkbook to brunch with Robert and Anny to give Anny an "out." That felt contrived as Hell. First off, nobody carries a checkbook anymore. Second, how is writing a check going to change what porn granny said was a relationship of convenience? Robert still needs a babysitter and Anny still needs a green card, so if that were the arrangement being made, what business is it of porn Granny's? And how is paying "the babysitter" to go away in any way helpful to Robert or to Bryson? That said, I think porn Granny's husband is probably right in that there will come a time when Robert wants that money.

All of this! Especially the part about Anna and Murcel. I have been saying since day 2 that this is as real as Jasmin's face.

This episode was incredibly staged and fake, from Mursel magically deciding to "come back" on a no return visa to porn granny whipping out a check, but I did thoroughly enjoy how unimpressed Tania's own friends were with her fake woke bullshit and total lack of self-awareness.

Yep, fake fake fake. Tania and her mother look to me like they belong on My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding. And Syngin needs to listen to his friend who is the only voice of reason on this show.

She, like Zied, always looks like she's just been hit on the head with a frying pan. She always has that slightly stunned look.

This whole show was a bunch of staged scenes, strung together into a semi-coherent narrative. Porn granny and her charmingly quaint "checkbook", Mike's visit to his lawyer, Mursel's amazing Return From Turkey (and captivity in his family's storage shed, I guess? Luckily he was able to chew through the restraints in time!). The horrifically embarrassing sight of Sarah making it all about herself at Michael and Juliana's wedding, while pouring Chardonnay down her neck as fast as she ever could. Best of all, Tania's visit to the bridal shop. As I posted last night on the live chat thread, no power on earth can convince me that Tania would not insist on one that's locally sourced, hand woven, vegetable dyed, produced by an indigenous women's collective. Come on, show!

 

Yeah, a lot of things don't make sense.  I didn't understand what Mike's attorney was saying about being glad that the government is not making a decision on the K1 was good and would give him time to think about whether he wanted to withdraw it.  Will they give him a warning or countdown?  It's obvious that this woman does not love him.  She's made it clear. So, what's up in the air?  He cannot offer her a baby, money or spiritual support.  It's doomed. Glad they now know it. 

Also, Anny probably figures there is much more money here for her in the long run than to leave with a check. She is one materialistic woman, I give her that.  She makes no bones about it.  Robert is an idiot to go forward.  There is no love between them and she is not babysitter. It lets me know that he isn't that concerned with Bryson's welfare, if he thinks she is a good role model.

Anna's boys' father is not in their lives - they have no dad's house to go to on the weekends or any day. They have no positive male role model (unless there are uncles or friends whom we have not seen, as they have refused to be on the show). They are for the most part stuck with a selfish mother and an ignoramus soon-to-be stepfather. I hope all the boys are stellar students, as they can escape - aka go away for college. However, the little one is 6? Too many years of Anna and Murcel!

Paging Sondra Celli! 

about Anny's red heels, from the preview where we see Robert wearing a red tuxedo, they must have decided that's the wedding color scheme. Bedazzled sneakers, cowboy boots, colored shoes, etc. are pretty common on "Say Yes to the Dress" but each bride thinks she's being so unique and edgy. Same with Tania not wanting a white wedding gown, it's been done to death on SYTTD. 

edited to add: We won't find out for a couple of weeks, but I bet Robert is also wearing sneakers.

His attorney doesn't know what happened between Mike and Natalia. She just knows there was some sort of fallout, so the "classified" issue just gives Mike some government imposed timeout to reconsider the situation.

I carry two checkbooks also - one for me and one for my father (who passed away in March so I guess I can stop carrying that one now but up until a week or so ago I was still paying some of his bills out of his account).  

Nobody has mentioned that Juliana had two gowns - that princess wedding gown and then that adorable cute short reception gown - she looked great in both of them!  I do like that his kids seem to really like her and she pays them a lot of attention.  She seems to be a really kind person.

Anna said her boys were soooooo upset when Mursel left. What universe is she living in? The oldest one can't stand him, the middle one doesn't give a crap and the youngest is so deprived of a male father figure he will take what he can get. Poor little guy. Anna SUCKS!

Jasmine needs to call Juliana and ask her if Michael has any friends to hook her up with. She needs a Michael, not a Blake. I think Blake is the sweetest guy but not too bright when it comes to love. I'm sure he can find himself a little cutie right there in LA who actually doesn't mind working. 

Mike, you are home now. Forget about the Ukranian. She wants a baby NOW. She wants you to become a religious man. Then she doesn't know if she love you at all. End it before your life is ruined. At least he got the ring back. 

Angela and Mikuul. That dinner scene was so staged. First the family is telling them Mikuul needs to move on, they are all over it, even Mikuul said he is tired of waiting. Next minute they are all for the marriage. That was a quick turn around. What happened to the baby issue?  Also, I keep asking myself why is it a big deal to get married in Nigeria? They can have a second American style wedding when they go back to the US. There you go, Angela. Wedding problem solved.  If Mikuul is ever granted his Visa, of course.

Maybe that's why Jasmine's parents are okay with everything.  Their daughter has no work ethic, better Blake's problem than theirs.

Yeah. You never know. I happened to have a check in my purse recently (long story) when I went to buy some things. When I got to checkout I realized I had left my purse on my desk, so I had no credit card and no cash! To avoid a wasted trip, I went to a store that I frequent often and knows me. They took the check even with me having no ID!

Shoutout to Emily for being completely unflappable in the face of Bitchy Betsy trying to needle her into a reaction about the dress Betsy chose (Emily: *shrug* "Okay.") and then further pointing out that it's not in the colours that Emily wanted for her wedding (Emily: *shrug* "I like it."). She was surprisingly chill and for a moment, it was hard to remember that she was the same one who developed a case of the vapours whenever a meeting with one of Sasha's 90 ex-wives didn't go well. 

Is weed legal in Oregon? That might explain it. No way a single mimosa in a plastic glass got her that relaxed. 

Emily's used to Bitchy Betsy's ways. She's honed her coping skills. Jasmine could learn a thing or two from her about cultivating her inner peace. 

I think Michael wore sneakers because his arthritis plays up terrible if he's on his feet for too long. Hee.

Many of the scenes are set up to be filmed at restaurants. Much of the conversation and reaction shots are heavily edited judging by level of drinks and amount of food on plates before them.

There’s not much that’s real about this show except the fact that none of these couples are in love. Not even the ones we just saw get married.

The oddest couple has to be Jasmin and Blake. I just can’t fathom motives here? She’s using Blake but she surely should’ve picked a better dupe.

But who?  She doesn't have a personality.  A rich American guy who wants to support some hot young thang isn't going to want someone as joyless as Jasmine.  Especially since she really isnt that pretty and wouldn't let HIM out to drink.  

Sadly, Blake may have been the best she could do at this point.

On a separate topic, I just realized Squim literally "bought the farm." Snarkers, we are falling down on the job.

I'm also starting to suspect that despite the wonderful hair and personality, Syngin may wear a very small shoe size, hence the emasculation a la witch doctor.

Blake makes odd facial expressions - yes, I wrote last evening. BUT, Jasmin is one of the WORST of all 90D casemates EVER.  There is nothing there...she is so young to be so "dead" - and yes, I know that Finnish cultural norms differ from American norms. There is just something non-human about her in all ways. Seemingly to have no real emotions or desire to connect with others (besides her sister). No desire to aspire to achieve ANYTHING other than find/live in inner peace. As many of you have written, Blake can do better than Jasmin.

I drool over Anny's hair. It's so thick and shiny.

I think the shoe place was like a Famous Footware-- I saw boxes on the shelves but also saw name brands like Nike, Asics, and Clarks. Or a DSW, but probably a Famous Footware. They give out a lot of coupons (which I'm sure Robert would have). It looks like they were at an outlet mall. In any case, Anny was happy and it was a step up from the thrift store.

I like how Blake answered Jasmin's questions like she answers questions --- "I don't know, not much," scoff.

Jasmine and the drinking thing. Girl, his friends drink. Good luck trying to get him to not hang out with them anymore.

I'm glad Jasmine apologized for walking out on him. I think that really hurt him a lot.

Betsy definitely TO ME comes across as super jealous. Her sister has a husband and a kid, and women do get jealous over that type of thing. Cuz it's attention that they don't get. That said, if my fiancé talked to me the way Sasha talked to Betsy, I'd be on a campaign to send him back. But I don't put up with rude men. AND Betsy was really rude to him, too. So maybe it's justified. I don't know. Her wedding with Sasha was really nice. Also, the baby looks way more normal now that he's older.

Not legally possible for Mursel to leave and return. Even after they married, he would've had to apply for a travel permit to leave the US while he waited for his adjustment of status. And since Mursel and Anna were (purportedly) not yet married...

My husband is from England and didn't even NEED a visa to come here and visit, but once he arrived on the K1 he could not leave here until we married, and even then we had to pay for the travel permit (a permit that is ONLY available once you have filed for AoS). I am very well aware of this because his mother had brain cancer and he couldn't fly back for the surgery in that first year without jumping through a bunch of expensive hoops.

I think that either Mursel was here on a tourist visa the first time, he got an entirely new visa,  the "Turkey" scenes were faked, or they married much earlier and he returned to Turkey on a travel permit. Regardless, it did not happen the way it was shown.

Even though I know that is what all people in the know have said, it's too disappointing. I imagine what happened is he returned to his parent's home in Turkey, moping and pouting all over the house, throwing himself on the floor in histrionics wailing about wanting to kiss Anna, and his family bribed someone at the embassy to allow him to return so he can continue to piss on the toilet seat of someone else.

Yep. I'm sticking with that version. Just like the old saying, "To a hammer everything looks like a nail," at this point in time, when it comes to this show, I view everything as scripted or frauding unless proof otherwise appears. Guilty until proven innocent when it comes to Sharp Entertainment and TLC.

Mmm... vocal fries... lunch... 

Sorry, I’m really hungry right now. But I hate vocal fry, too! (And before anyone starts the “it’s gendered anti feminist rhetoric and you fell for it!” spiel, I’ve hated it since I was a child and I hate it in men, too!!!) 

I still can’t keep Emily/Sasha and Elizabeth/Andrei straight. Their stories are so similar and I think Emily and Libby could be sisters. There are definitely some tropes this show loves:

- offputting Eastern European man/American woman who likes to be miserable (I don’t count Alexei/Loren here — he’s pretty nice)

- middle-aged American guy/young Southeast Asian woman (David & Annie, Tarik & whatever her name was, Larry and the pig roast)

- dorky white guy/age-appropriate but insane “spicy Latina” [gag me with this phrase] (Russ & Paola, Mormon and Ecuadorian sociopath, Mormon and baby Brazilian [not insane], Colt and the Shrew)

- overweight, childish American woman/Muslim man who is out of her league looks-wise (mega fucking list here but I’ll just highlight the OGs Dinyell and Mahamit)(not counting Anna/Mursel here because of Mursel’s face)

- black American/Afro-Caribbean whose families seem to have a multigenerational blood feud (The Family Chantel; Asthmatic Anny and Stepmother-in-Law from the Vivid soundstage)

- white women and their Caribbean resort souvenirs (Molly & Luis, Melanie & Devar, Ashley & the Jamaican tattooed lover/unacknowledged child molestation victim)

- evenly matched couples who seem like they’ll have a good marriage (LOL JK)

- general WTF/damn good TV (Mormon wannabe doctor/Russian study abroad wife with the black honeymoon baby; Pole & Kareeny — also dorky/spicy but mostly greasy/felony; Grangela and Mykol; Darcey, full stop)

Did anyone else notice that Emily’s wedding gown was NOT the one she “said yes” to at Scary Greta’s Bridal Salon?

Maybe that explains her odd way of talking and tilting her head so much I expect green pea soup to come out of her mouth. 

LMAO!

I liked the one she actually wore a ton better.

Angela and Michael, though she's a lot older, don't really look that mismatched together. I'm a sucker for dimples, so I find Michael just adorable. I love his mom too. HIs clock gift was the best. Angela's sex toys were a riot.

CHECKS.

I went years and years without writing a check. Direct deposit, auto-pay, e-checks, online purchases all the way. Now, I write a check for a lot of recurring expenses, because it forces me to look at the statement and often they are wrong. I also like having the paper trail, and the info that's on the checks when they are deposited. Some stuff, like credit cards, I keep on auto-pay because there is a penalty if the due date is missed, and that can happen when you write checks.

Anny would have never been able to cash that check though. For 15K? With her DM passport as an ID? The bank would never cash it. She was smart to reject the offer. They need to bring cash if they are serious. 

Anny needs to stop bitching about Robert to his friends and family if she wants them to take her serious. She's sweet, but then when she goes trying to get allies she digs the hole.

Some places still require a voided cheque or payment by cheque. My cheques are pretty old. I might rip one from my stash and carry it in my handbag but the bag is heavy enough without a chequebook in it.

Granny Porn Star would need to probably get a certified cheque for the $15,000 - unless she called the bank to inform them that she was writing a cheque in such a large amount or it is coming from a business account. I know that I couldn't write a cheque to cover my payment for my car - the dealership required a certified one.

I wrote a 10K check for my dad, to cash, and move to a different account. The bank wanted to charge 5% to cash it! And it was MY BANK! It would be free to deposit it into his account (a different bank) but it could take a week to clear. Given Anny doesn't have a bank account to deposit a check that large into, I don't think a bank would give her that money. Porn gran would have to withdraw the money and then hand it to her.

Porn granny, meth meepaw, and banks all suck.

I deposited a cheque recently - reimbursement for an iPad. No more envelopes. The ATM just scanned the cheque. I can even take a photo of my cheque and cash it that way.

Anny probably would not have a bank account here so Granny Porn Star could not simply do an e-transfer of funds. I have done that a number of times - seems to be the new cheque.

My bank will send the check through their online service.  Which is sweet because then I have some sort of record that I paid (or tried to pay) and they have to find an envelope and stamp, not me (though I always carry stamps in my wallet).  

The last time I wrote a personal check the old fashioned way was to pay my vehicle registration.  I ended up with a penalty because apparently the DMV "lost" my check and I didn't even have proof that my bank sent the check (when I have the bank send a check they withdraw the funds immediately, so there is at least a record that you tried to pay).  

I'm STILL bitter about that.  I don't do late fees, that's just throwing away money.

If PSG was at all serious she would have withdrawn the money and laid it out all over the table.  Has no one seen indecent proposal?  Was there not a porn parody of it?  The best way to pay someone is with money spread out all over a bed or a table at the local Denny's or wherever.

Someone on Reddit found the code section the visa officer discussed. I'm including his comment in a quote box because it won't link for some reason.

Quote

Ok, I found it. Thank you. I found the rule he's referring to.
9 FAM 41.81 N6.3 Reissuance of K-1 Visa (TL:VISA-2; 08-30-1987) If a K-1 visa, valid for a single entry and a six-month period, has already been used for admission into the United States and the alien fiancé(e) has returned abroad prior to the marriage, the consular officer may issue a new K visa, provided that the period of validity does not exceed the 90th day after the date of initial admission of the alien on the original K visa and provided also that the petitioner and beneficiary still intend and are free to marry. The alien’s return to the United States and marriage to the petitioner must take place within 90 days from the date of the original admission into the United States in K status.

From what I’m reading, the reissued visa basically is just a renter [sic for reenter] stamp, so let’s say Murical entered the us on his original K-1 on April 1 2019, then he has until June 30th to get married and theoretically file the adjustment of status to be allowed to continue to stay. What I’m understanding is that if he left on May 1st and then changed his mind on June 1st, as long as the embassy decides to grant it, he can run back to Omaha to marry Anna, as long as she is still able to marry with a deadline of the original June 30th. So while they may be playing it up for the cameras, he could theoretically be entering the us on June 28th and by the time he gets to Omaha they may only have a few hours before midnight of the 30th when his visa expires.

Therefore, I continue to assert it played out with Mursel returning to Turkey, moping and pouting all over the house, throwing himself on the floor in histrionics wailing about wanting to kiss Anna, and his family kicked him out and told him to go wherever he wanted but that wasn't with them.

The show sent them there. She said she purchased her wedding dress off the rack at Macy's. 

stoopid links

Wine Guys ex wife is soooooo weird. Shes playing super nice but I feel like she might murder Julianna one day. 

Grangela is barnbaited by everyone at the table?? Ohhhh, she means bombarded.

Sasha's 3rd wife is living in la la land 

Syngin left his friends, family AND animals for this Tania bitch. She's just gross. 

Jasmin is telling anyone who will listen that she never wants to work. Then windees why Blake's mom cares what she does. Laughable.

Robert trying to suck up to Anny buying shoes after he showed out in front of his brother was rich. Then the triple X queen tries to buy her out. Maybe she should have taken the money and run. 

Fucking Mursel and Anna..... I can't 

 

I would've told porn granny its $50k to get me out of there, cashed the check and stayed.

If Anny took a check from PSG and did not leave the country, that might be considered theft by deception.

Michael and Juliana's wedding, with Sarah officiating, reminded me of a bogus commitment ceremony like they have on one of those Sister Wives shows when they're bringing on another wife. 

I said to my hubs “ why is Sarah on this show sooo much, blabbing and interfering?”  He said “ For MONEY”, that’s why.  Her and the two kids are making money.  Duh!

Emily in the car - "SAAAAAAAA-shaaaaaa!  SAAAAAAA-shaaaaa!!"  OMG...I'm not a Sasha fan (although I think a lot of his rudeness is just cultural differences and language misunderstandings) but I don't think I could handle Emily's nasal whining for very long.

 

Jasmin is relentlessly lifeless.  The way she expresses her points as though the simple fact that she wants to do something or that she has made a decision is all that matters.  Once that is the case, there's no explanation needed...no apology or consideration required.  It's just "yes.  I'm doing that."  "Yes, this is what I want."  

 

Sarah is awful.  I love the promo for next week - "so there was some talk about a pre nup?"  Yeah...there was...when you brought it up!  Remember?!  How you brought up the pre-nup out of the blue when it hadn't been mentioned at all?  Remember that?  lol.  And the touching on the shoulders!  God what a butinsky!  GTFOOH! And I still don't really like the precocious tots.

 

I really enjoyed Tania's crew totally taking Syn's side.  lol.  They all had wonderful "jesus you're an idiot" faces on when she told them the soul mates story...

 

WTF does Anna need to take her kids to some neutral site to tell them her important news??  Don't they live with her?  You can't sit around the kitchen table at home and have a talk?  It's like some sort of weird business meeting or something.
