I don't really get where Candiace's husband is with all of this.  I know if it was my MIL that had all of these control issues over my husband and was constantly trying to make him do whatever she wanted using the stuff she was paying for as leverage, I'd refuse to play ball.  No way in hell would I live in a house she paid for.  No way in hell would I get married in a wedding she was footing the majority of the bill for.  You want to attach strings? Fine, I won't take the gifts. 

I thought he was being encouraging to her while they were going over their planning....if nothing else, he seems to be the calm one to her drama persona.

Candiace  mom really needs to get over herself. Also she needs to be more independent of her mother's money, she holding herself hostage to it.  30 plus years as she said she still married her father in spite of the outside child and they aren't even married any longer   People just hold on to baggage way too long for me. Her mother is extremely controlling . Girl you need to free yourself, and over a hundred thousand for a wedding is just crazy , just my opinion..

Like others have said Robyn is embarrassing. I thought her and Juan have always been fucking. Shes acting like he proposed again. And now I’m never gonna stop seeing her hair as ramen lol.

Also I’m sure the only reason Ashley is prego now is because of Michaels sexual assault allegations.

And I know we saw a picture of an ad for her perfume, but does anyone know if the product actually exists?  Like, could I go out and buy it today?  And would it be at a reasonable price point?

She's supposed to have a pop-up shop for her perfume at the Bloomingdale's at Tyson's Corner on Saturday.

She could have told her mom her intentions from the get-go about inviting her brother, and if her mom said no, Candiace could have had the wedding without mom's checks.  

Her dad gave her $20,000 towards her wedding.  All she had to do was tell mom to kick rocks and just have a $20,000 wedding on dad's dime and she could've happily invited her brother to her heart's content.

She's a walking contradiction and I hope Candiace's brother is not offended by the things that she said. 

Candiace's brother has been dealing with this horror show of a woman for 40 years. I'm sure she didn't allow the child to be brought to her house and if he was, she was nasty to him.  I'm also sure she didn't allow her husband to take Candiace to the baby mother's house so his children could get to know each other.  She's been nasty to this kid his entire life; he's used to it.

What was Candiace doing with Karen?  Once again Karen picks a younger woman to "mentor" until that younger woman realized what a witch Karen is and dumps her. 

I haven't really seen Karen be a witch to a younger woman who didn't deserve it, though.  Most of her ire is towards Gizelle and Ashley and Ashley has offended everyone on the cast.

I think Mom just doesn't want the guests to wonder who this young man is, SHE doesn't want to be embarrassed. 

Candiace is inviting the entire DMV metro area.  NOBODY is going to wonder who that dude is, why he's there, or his relationship to Candiace.  You're Candiace's brother? Ok, cool...next.  The only person who cares is Dorothy because the man is a living reminder of how stupid she is*.

*The mom isn't stupid for marrying Candiace's father after he cheated on her.  Sometimes, things can work out if both parties want it to.  The mom is stupid for marrying Candiace's father knowing she didn't want to deal with the reality of the outside child and had not forgiven/forgotten Candiace's father for cheating on her AND producing an outside child.

See, I don't even consider him an "outside" child because Candiace's mom wasn't MARRIED to the man.  I'm old but forty years ago, you couldn't be the "outside anything" if there wasn't a marriage.  I mean when you do one of those questionnaires, it's married, single, divorced, widowed.  IMO I don't equate marriage with being in a relationship, especially today when in most states people of the same sex can marry.

See, I’m an asshole because I don’t think Candiass really gives a shit about her brother otherwise why is airing her families’ dirty laundry on the show? Her mother is horrible but she waited till all the checks have been cashed till she dropped this news. Her overly pretty beauty pageant crying just makes me think she is exploiting this awful situation for her own benefit. This is the same woman who thought that winning a third tier toddlers and tiaras pageant made her a celebrity that people recognized in airports.

To Candiass’s Mom,

You might be the biggest asshole of them all for treating that boy badly for something that is not his fault. Hell, that boy is middle aged now and you still have not learned.

Candiace and her mother seem to call on Jesus a lot.  However, I believe Jesus has better things to do than worry about their relationship.   I am sure she paid a king’s ransom for her wedding dress, and yet it didn’t fit right. She had to keep adjusting the strap.  What was with the sockless groom and groomsmen? 

I think Gizelle is one of the most beautiful women in the Housewives franchise.  I am having a hard time understanding why she continues to allow Sherman to make a fool of her. She doesn’t seem to know her worth.

Candiace's dress was pretty in theory but it was ill fitting.  The reception dress was too precious and pageant-y.

Her mom lurking around to keep her eye on the brother was sad.  All those people at the reception and instead of greeting folks as the mother of the bride you are lurking around Candiace's brother?

Robyn wasn't trying to make the wedding.  If she was, she wouldn't have started up a load of laundry right when she needed to hop in the car and drive down 95/whatever road you take to get to downtown DC (295? 50?)

NOBODY should take relationship advice from Juan.  Shut up, Juan.

Monique knew doggone well what Sherman looked like.

I didn't know interracial couples jumped the broom.  Ok.

The ladies were pretty dense & unfeeling about Giselle showing up without Sherman. 

Yes and no because if Karen showed up without Ray, or Ashley showed up without Kickback Jack or if Monique showed up without Chris, Gizelle would've been right there snickering and dragging them.  So, oh well.

The wedding venue & decor was gorgeous! Candiace's dress was ok, but for a petite woman it was too much dress for her. I wish they had just said traditional vows. 

Candiace's step-father is really handsome! Why is the mom so obsessed with ancient Black history when she's got that at home?!

What a boring episode.  The wedding was boring.  I was flipping between the episode and an old episode of SVU which I already saw.  That wedding gown was ugly.  Did Karen think she was going to an afternoon tea given her dress choice?

No Robyn.  You missed the wedding.  The only excuse you could possible give is that there was an accident on 95 or 495 on your way down from Hanover.  But you didn't.

Gizelle - just move on.

That's all I got.

I kept making mental notes of all the obnoxious things in tonight's episode, and now I've forgotten almost every one of them (that's how many there were!).  I do remember thinking that Candiace's mother paid a small fortune to give Candiace a chance to audition as a singer on TV one more time, except now a whole song and one where nobody could tell her to shut up, 'cause she was the bride.  (It was a really bad song, too.  I could've written her a better one.)  I wonder how disappointed she was to hear Chris's moronic vows.

Robyn and Juan really are meant for each other.  And not in a smart way.

What's supposed to look like protectiveness in Chris Samuels to me looks increasingly menacing and possessive.

Oh, yeah, were those shoulder pads the dress person stuck in Candiace's top?  They didn't really look like those silicone "chicken cutlets" you normally see.  Boobage was embarrassingly cock-eyed.  An easy fix, but no one bothered.

That wedding was such a big bougie mess from start to finish. 200k for that tacky shit?! Clouds on the ceiling? Chris’s stupid looking high-water pants with no socks?? Candyass’s cringeworthy singing performance??? Her mom’s godawful extensions really aren’t helping to promote their fake hair biz although Candy’s own wedding weave didn’t look all that stellar either.

Poor Gizelle, just trying to get drunk, rekindle friendships and stay strong despite her loser man dumping her last minute...AGAIN. Almost as pathetic as Tinsley Mortimer on the NYC cast and her equally ghost-like on again/off again fella. I honestly felt bad for Giz; surely there are other good men out there for a successful beauty like her? Which reminds me, how’s her makeup line doing??

Robyn needs to just go. She and her baby daddy fuckboy from Baltimore are just so tacky and pathetic. Now that her hair got chopped off she’s ready to finally get canned quicker than Kerri Russell and her similarly awful hair chop that got “Felicity” cancelled. Swimcap hair is only sexy if you’re Halle Berry, ladies. 

Ashley getting drunk made me laugh. That’s usually me doing shots and being extra goofy at weddings. As gross as I find her and Creepy Aussie cryptkeeper, I’m glad she finally is having the baby she’s always wanted. And I hope to Hell she finally laid down the law to her disgusting leech of a freeloading mother.

That wedding was so tacky & OTT. From the groom/groomsmen's sockless highwater pants slip-on shoe look, the clouds on the ceiling, Candiace's ridiculous dresses & that song! Good God the song! Girl cannot sing. I did think it was sweet that she had her step-father escort her down the aisle along with her bio father. The cynical Toothbrush says Mama insisted, but I do think Candiace has a nice loving relationship with him, so cynical TB has been momentarily shushed with a cookie crumble mocha. 

I thought Robyn looked nice, but get to the damn wedding on time, and tell Juan his relationship advice means less than nothing. And it was crappy advice (of course). 

Gizelle looked like a million bucks, but her face said it all. I wanted her to stop rubbing on Karen, but I realize that things happen when you drink. Ashley getting wasted was hilarious. I liked Karen's dress, but it was way too casual (and too tight in the boobage). Nice to see Dr. BBG. 

Candiace's original budget: $125,000; Wedding Cost: $200,000

Me: $200,000 for this tacky shit??!!??

When gizelle called robin to tell her Sherman wasn’t coming she only had on eye lashes. By the end of the call she was in full make up.

Robyn and Juan missing the wedding was rude as hell. "As long as we're together, we're on time" is not a thing, Robyn. Robyn seems to have a lateness problem when it comes to shit she doesn't want to do, like when she was half an hour late to meet the group in Cannes and then had the nerve to be surprised that they left without her. I wish I would.

$200K for a wedding is not what I would do with $200K unless $200K was a mere drop in the bucket of my wealth. I assume Bravo picked up some of the tab since it was filmed and the whole cast was there. The bridesmaid's dresses were nice - basic black and not readily identifiable as bridesmaid dresses, so they could get another wear out of them. Candiace's mother's hair looked terrible.

Karen's dress was mostly white but I'd say Gizelle's was half and half, since only the top of her jumpsuit was white. Like if I saw someone in black pants or skirt and a white shirt, I wouldn't think she was wearing white, you know?

I hate Karen's long blonde wig. The short one she wears in talking heads bothers me less but I still don't like the platinum blonde on her.

Re: interracial couples jumping the broom, I've seen that before, a few times. I was actually in a wedding with two brides, one Black, one white, and they jumped the broom. (That couple has since divorced and my friend, the Black bride, remarried another white woman and THEY jumped the broom.) 

I fell out when the dress-maker was standing there like "Um ..." when Candiace and her mother were fighting, but I'd imagine she's seen plenty of that in her profession.

This episode was a complete snooze. The only redeeming part was the green-eyed mean girl getting her come-uppence when Sherman dumped her just before the wedding. Yes, Sherman dumped Gizelle, no matter how Gizelle tries to reframe this as her dumping him. Sherman knew that standing up someone as conceited as Gizelle meant they were done and did not care. 

I've decided that Ashley can't help but find at least a little joy in other people's pain, even if it is a "friend."  She could barely suppress her glee when Gizelle said that Sherman was not coming.  Looks like from the previews they are due for a falling-out so maybe this was just the pre-cursor.

It didn't matter when, where or how that conversation took place, Candiace's mother was going to react the same way. Candiace's brother had nothing personally to do with their father cheating on her mother.  Candiace's mother never should have married the man if she was resentful of the fact he created this child with the outside woman.  I suspect he was never allowed to bring the child home and Candiace was never allowed to spend time with the boy growing up.

Candiace's mother has a whole 'nother husband (not sure if she is still married to him) and a whole 'nother child. This situation went down 41 years ago.  It's time to let go.

Candiace's mother uses the money to control Candiace because she couldn't control her father 41 years ago.

Having said this, if *I* am paying for your wedding, EYE get to dictate the guest list.  EYE get to dictate the dress you wear, the food you eat and the venue you have it in.  EYE get to dictate the music, the day you have it and the time of day you have it.  If you don't like it, take your azz to PG courthouse or Alexandria City Hall, have a reception catered by Giant or Safeway and start looking for apartments off of Route 1.

I paid for my daughter’s wedding, and was just there for support.  She and her now husband made all of the decisions.  My paying was a gift, with no strings.  Why pay if the bride gets no say?

For me, it was like the prom scene in Carrie, watching the satisfaction on Chris Hargenson's face when the pig blood splashed all over Carrie.  I have absolutely no sympathy for her, couldn't have happened to a meaner person.  But her jumpsuit?  Was GOD!  She, Ashley and Monique were the best dressed....Karen's dress was okay but I took points away due to the awful blonde weave.  Oh, and Candiace's mother looked good too; too bad she has a shitty attitude.

Crazy R&B titles/high watered pants aside, I thought the wedding was beautiful.

Gizelle, give Karen a little more time!  You've made your point, hell even baked some cookies....when she's ready, she'll come to you and hopefully you'll have learned by then to not joke so much when someone is down.

Beaky Buzzard and Juan should have stayed home and fucked like rabbits if they were going to be late.  And she has a sick body, why in the bluedilly hell was she dressed so matronly?!

One of the truest statements Monique made was at the reunion, when she said she didn't have to do anything to get on Gizelle's nerves. "I can wake up and breathe and do that!" Gizelle is committed to not liking Monique, so anything Monique does or says is going to be negative in Gizelle's eyes. Monique could tell Gizelle she looked beautiful and Gizelle would be in a talking head talmbout how shady it was for Monique to say.

Right?? So rude that half the cast couldn't be bothered to show up on time

It wasn’t just the cast! There were quite a few guests out in the lobby waiting because they were late.

My wedding started promptly at 6. I was so taken aback at all the people at the reception who confessed to missing the ceremony. Basically telling me I had the nerve to start on time and not give everyone an extra 5 minutes. I however do not recall them offering money if we went past the time we paid for the venue. My save the dates went out 6 months prior and an extra 30 days before that for out of town guest. So you had 4,620 hours to get ready but needed an extra 5 minutes?!?!

I couldn’t get over how many people were late to the wedding!

I know.  Not only is it rude, it's insufferably rude.  I don't care if Juan and Robyn were coming from Baltimore or Timbuktu.  If it's important, you find a way to get there on time.  You leave an hour earlier than Waze tells you is appropriate if you must. I guarantee Robyn would have been on time if Juan had asked her to meet him for a tryst at the same time and place.

Many of my guests missed my wedding ceremony.  It was five minutes long. What was funny were how so many people were surprised that they missed the ceremony.  Well...we printed 6:30 on the invitations, and it started at...6:30.  So why the surprise?  Did they think I was going to be that asshole bride that kept people waiting at an outdoor summer ceremony like Denise on RHBH?  No.  I'm not entitled to make my guests wait (for any reason short of a full-blown emergency that requires paramedics and shit), and they're not allowed to be late.  Anyone who doesn't get the concept of time (it's the fourth dimension; google it late guests o'mine!) should be placed in their own little society where they can keep inconveniencing each other, so that the considerate people don't have to deal with them.

And if you can't make the ceremony, only the reception, cool! Just let people know, so they know how to plan accordingly.  Rude, rude, rude.

FFS Gizele, you know what it felt like in last week's episode to try and apologize to Karen, so why the hell can't you allow Monique a moment to apologize to you!  I'm no Monique fan, but damn Gizele, let the woman talk!

That whole encounter with Monique went tits-up for Gizelle.  Gizelle was clearly taking her frustrations on Sherman being a no-show out on Monique, and Monique was apologizing for something she actually did wrong, so Gizelle was going to read her for filth.  I was expecting a full segment of back-and-forth until Chris swept in.  Gizelle realized that Monique had actually apologized after the fight, so it was dead, and she had to tuck tail and go over to Monique and accept her apology wholly and fully, without twisting the knife.  Observing objectively: Score one, Monique.  Observing as someone who thinks Monique should get a comeuppance at least every other episode: womp-womp.

I loved the wedding except the dresses and the singing. I thought it was too much gown for her small frame. Other than that I thought it was a beautiful event.

Oh Zellie. Zellie Zellie Zellie - he's just not that into you. Dont blame Monique for what Sherman did. It was hundreds of people at that wedding he could have avoided Monique. You are an option to Sherman; not a priority. 

I thought it was not just a beautiful wedding, but an extraordinarily beautiful wedding (significantly better than Eva's on RHOA, which I also thought I liked until I saw this), but, yeah, WTF with Chris's shoes, the signing, and the dress that was not fitted correctly?  On the other hand, the bar was amazing, it looked like a lot of fun for guests, and I loooved the seating arrangements.  

I'm kind of over Robyn (if I haven't made that clear already).  She was being such a bad friend to Gizelle when Gizelle called her about Sherman.  In my world, if a friend calls me with that news just prior to a big function, I am going to build them up and say he wasn't shit anyway.  Then, after the fact, you can have a good cry on my shoulder and we can talk the entire thing out, soup to nuts...and if you want to call me later?  We can talk more then too.  Robyn, with her repeated insistence that Gizelle was lying, (what was she yelling?  "No way!" Or something equally asinine) was just escalating the situation.  Not kind.  Just immature.

Juan blaming Gizelle...yeah, ok, Juan.  Let's take your relationship advice.  He seems a little slow on the uptake to me, always has.  Remember how he felt like Andy foiled him with all of the tough Andy questions (but I contradict myself) at the season two reunion, and he was complaining to all the other husbands and they were like, "yeah..." I get annoyed when people on this show refer to Robyn as Juan's wife.  Robyn and Juan are divorced.  They are not husband and wife.  Juan divorced Robyn and pursued his love of basketball and another woman in Europe.  Just because they are now "working things out" (whatever that means; seems like Gizelle and Sherman put more work into their relationship than these two) does not confer upon them the status of husband and wife.  Juan can have his cake and eat it too with Robyn in the bedroom, I guess, but not with this.  

I haven't been a huge Karen fan, but I can definitely give credit where credit is due and say that it appears that she is learning from seeing herself on TV.  She is much more slow to get into the Frey, and she is kind of holding back, waiting for people to come to her, all while treating everyone cordially.  It's a thing of beauty to see her use restraint, as opposed to flying off the handle at every perceived slight, thus giving everyone fodder against her.

Ashley was just Ashley last night.  She was being a good listening ear to Gizelle (better than Robyn!) and I thought she was bringing it a little, also while maintaining restraint.  

Did anyone else see the wheels turning a very little bit for Gizelle when Candiace introduced her to her brother?  Like Gizelle was thinking,' wow, imagine if this turns out to be a meet-cute!  Fuck motherfucking Sherman!"  Just me?  Going away now...

I can't wait for the stuff to hit the fan, and for this season to really get going.  I can tell it's going to be good.

I wasn’t at all surprised that people were late to the wedding.  I’d never been to a wedding that started on time, until I went to the wedding of two White friends years ago in Philadelphia.  I arrived 1/2 hour late (which was generally the starting time for the weddings of my Black friends and relatives, lol) and was shocked - I tell you shocked! -  that the couple was at the altar and the wedding had started on time!😂

One friend kept us waiting for almost TWO hours in Fairmount Park (again Philly), and it had rained the night before so all of our heels were getting sunk into the mud.  And nope, there was no emergency, traffic accident, etc.  CPT is real folks, even though it is rude as hell.  

And I must concur with all who said the dress was too much and the groomsmen were not enough.  Highwaters and sockless??!!!  Where they do that at?
