  1. Kind of like dumping back your letters during a game of Scrabble.
  2. I have very low expectations for this show, so I actually enjoyed it a bit. I feel like Kristen sat down the employees and had a meeting on the roles they would all be playing (the ditz, the bitch etc). I doubt Kristen has worked a day in her life but she knows how to half ass play a character on a reality show. I don't know anything about her husband other than that he played football in Chicago and he was a polarizing person but I find his no nonsense surliness refreshing as it contrasts all the phonies. The show is a decent escape in these trying times.

    Thanks for saying this. I've had male friends that agonized over this because they waited a little longer for a deeper connection with someone. But I also wondered whether he's got sexual dysfunction, unresolved trauma or if he's in the closet. Not to say there's anything wrong with being a virgin in your mid 20's but that other stuff is sometimes the reason why. Garrett not taking responsibility for his divorce should be a huge red flag. It takes two to tango!
  4. Tig Notaro, Maria Bamford, Carol Burnett, Paula Poundstone, Leslie Jones, Maya Rudolph, Lena Waithe, Mindy Kaling - More women! I think there are only two out of twelve, on this new season
  5. S14.E05: Week 5 2018.06.25

    Jordan has built a career for himself from scratch and he should be proud. It seems that the issue is he doesn't have a lot of other interests and he takes himself too seriously. Becca's weekend by contrast while not riveting did show a wider range of interests (books, spirituality, community, friendships). He needs to date another person obsessed with modeling and their appearance who he can spend long days at the gym with. L.A. is chock full of people like that. I also enjoyed the long shot of David standing all alone in the vast desert. Tattletales never win on this show! You'd think they'd learn from past seasons.
  6. S19.E03 Abbie 2018.06.19

    I felt really conflicted about Abbie's ex. I tend to have a zero tolerance policy for abusers. And this wasn't a one time thing (not that that's ok - zero tolerance), it went on for years and gave her PTSD. He ruins her life, spends a weekend in jail, takes a class and is accepted back into society? Yeah, no. I give him some credit for showing up in his daughter's life and on this show. It takes some big balls to have them flash those horrific pictures of Abbie's destroyed face and be like, "yeah, I did that". I think he could do more to make amends to Abbie, her family and his daughter. The scariest part of this story is that they were so in love and things were normal (or appeared to be) for a couple of years until they had their daughter. There are women who are more at risk for ending up in these types of relationships and Abbie, as far as we were told wasn't one of them. Abbie's family had no history of abuse. It sounded like it came out of the blue. I look at my young niece and think how can women trust anyone?
  7. S19.E02: Jackie R. 2018.06.12

    Her reason for hating her ex was that he made getting a divorce hard but I think she was just angry in general and he made a good target. I really felt for the sons and I hope they get some therapy or they might find themselves married to an alcoholic someday. Usually I don't really like this interventionist but it seemed like her Southern charm and empathic approach calmed Jackie down. That was pretty painful to hear her begging for wine while her kids were pouring their hearts out.
  8. S14.E02: Week 2 2018.06.04

    I think disingenuous was the word the male model was looking for. Talk about crimes against the English language! Lots of duds/ guys with baggage in this group. I wouldn't trust any of em at this point.
  9. Not until you said it! Now I can't unsee it.
  10. Roseanne Barr/Roseanne Conner

    In her decades in the public eye, she's done a lot more than make one racist comment. Her fame and her ability to make other people money, has protected her until now. Personally, I think she's mentally ill and racist. In addition to the brain injury she also says that she suffered childhood abuse and trauma. None of these things excuse her racism but they are explanations into her erratic, angry behavior. I hope that her finally experiencing consequences will force her to get help but she'll probably just see herself as a victim.
  11. Roseanne Barr/Roseanne Conner

    The current Roseanne Barr reminds me of severely, mentally ill people I've known that crave attention and will do offensive or even illegal things (like calling in fake 911 calls) to get it. She obviously isn't stable enough to be on television and in the public eye yet the new show got the green light anyway. Lots of blame to go around. This show deserved better and should have been left in the past.
  12. S14.E01: Week 1: Season Premiere

    Becca seems pretty average but when they showed the scenes for the season she seemed a bit unhinged. I can't imagine getting that worked up over dudes you barely know. She reminded me of Kristen Wiig in Welcome to Me.
  13. I was impressed that although Jade and Sean had never been to therapy, they jumped right in and were open and present in their session. They are the oldest on this show, I believe. It's amazing what a difference a few years can make, good or bad. I agree that Jade needs some one on one therapy. She seems so world weary and joyless at such a young age. She's like an old, young person. Lexi needs to move on. If you have to ask a guy that many times if he's into you, you've got your answer.
  14. S01.E08: Chapter Eight: Know Your Truth

    I love this show! It does however take a lot of suspension of disbelief to enjoy it. Why would Janet not just wait until she got home to check Facebook? Why didn't Barry have a decent back story ready to account for the hit man monologue? Why didn't he delete his Facebook account once he decided to stick around? Why does Gene have a mountain cabin when he is so worried about the students paying cash and paying for cancelled classes? It's best to just enjoy the ride and not think too much about it because the ride is pretty fun. Glad Noho Hank and Fuches made it. Looking forward to seeing those guys again. It is getting harder to find Barry sympathetic as he is now killing to not get caught. You could argue that by killing Chris he saved Chris's wife and kid but with Janice, it was just to save his ass with no regard for poor Gene. That seemed particularly cruel. I can't imagine a homicide detective being shot to death or even just disappearing is going to be overlooked or go unsolved. Maybe they'll pin it on Gene. Every Dateline episode it's usually the boyfriend or husband.
  15. Disappeared: All Episodes Talk

    Just watched the Amy Bradley cruise ship episode. I'm familiar with this case as I've heard it covered on true crime podcasts and maybe Dateline or one of those shows. I still think the most likely scenario is that she fell off the balcony. She was sharing a room with her family and they would have heard her leave again. Once the family offered 250k for her return, it muddied everything up with all the grifters that came forward. That guy that stole 100k from them claiming to be Special Forces is human garbage. It's always amazing to me that people will take advantage of the suffering of others.
