  1. S7.E7: I Want an Equal Partner

    Actually, Amber did go to a barbeque with Dave's friends and their wives, and she had a heartfelt talk with the wives. She actually seemed to have enjoyed the experience -- she was just nervous beforehand about "being judged". There's something very important to Amber about the "being judged" thing. She's not just bitching; she's obviously been hurt, probably more than once, by what people have said behind her back. (And no doubt, some of Dave's "bros" are from that gym...)

    Lol I remember that wig! The big difference is, Molly used that wig to tease her hubby sexually (and then shut him down). Amber isn't frigid, and she's attracted to Dave. But Amber seems to want Dave to say she is exactly "his type" -- even though it would be a lie. Of course, she can be a bleached blonde if she wants to. Just like Danielle's eyebrows, it's up to her. What isn't up to her is determining what Dave should find attractive.

    Dave saw his "bros" getting married off, and wanted to do the same thing. But you're right, he may be one of those people who is better off single. He certainly seems annoyed about Paisley. And when they discussed religion, he sounded rather hopeful when he asked Amber if the difference in religious beliefs would be a 'deal breaker' for her!

    Really? I thought she was a little bit older. She looks older than he does, and she certainly seems to think she needs a ton of anti-aging 'beauty' supplies or something disastrous will happen! Good point. Except, she's been making a big deal about Jessica Biel and how she (Amber) isn't even a brunette. That's something she could change, if she wanted to.
  5. S7.E7: I Want an Equal Partner

    ...And that's part of what I think is really bothering Amber about whether Dave is attracted to her. Also the fact that she's older than he is (and doesn't wear her age particularly well). The whole blonde/brunette thing is really stupid. If she wants to be brunette, all she has to do is throw away the peroxide! Exactly! ...It was kind of creepy, though, to watch Amber 'confess' her insecurity about Jessical Biel to the wives of Dave's "bros,"while looking right at the tall brunette one with straight, healthy hair. Makes me think Amber's may not be completely without cause... Dave's buddy has a tall, brunette wife - a woman who is Dave's "type," the type Dave had told the 'experts' he'd prefer as a wife (according to Dr. Pepper). Instead, Dave got an insecure bleached blonde who likes being a bleached 'blonde,' and apparently thinks Dave should applaud her for that choice. That's just not gonna happen.

    I feel the same way about Mia -- but if I'm being totally honest, I've got to say she could have been on a dating app from before, and not be checking it anymore.
  7. S7.E7: I Want an Equal Partner

    I'm glad the wives of Dave's friends called out Amber's "I'm blonde" and made her admit she's a natural brunette. Why doesn't she just go natural for him?!

    Did Mia really think Tristan had just completely forgotten all her lies and deceit about the 'ex, and the whole arrest on the honeymoon, etc.??!
  9. S7.E7: I Want an Equal Partner

    Dr. Pepper, to Dave and Amber: "You're off to a great start, a great start, really..." I wonder if she really believes blowing smoke 'up there' will help their marriage succeed?!
  10. S7.E7: I Want an Equal Partner

    I know, I was a little shocked! Jamie seemed to have learned from her mistakes in earlier seasons, a bit... At least, until the pooping thing.
  11. I don't think I'd call Amber's insecurities "massive". It's got to be hard, knowing that your husband did not choose you, a panel of (questionable) 'experts' did. It seems to me that she has reasonable doubt for Dave's attraction/devotion to her as his 'wife'.
  12. I'm actually glad to see Amber's response to that. In her own way, she's 'fighting back' against what she perceives as not accepting her the way she is. She'll need to learn how to handle it better --but I think Dave is a guy who likes to have things his way, with no 'talking back'.
  13. I really don't care at all what Amber does with her hair. But if she and/or Bobby are concerned about it, maybe she could cut it short and then let it grow out without chemical interference. Does she actually 'do' her own hair? Because this might be one time when an 'extra' expense is worth it. (Or if somebody else has done that to her, she might want to find a new hairdresser.)
  14. S07.E06: Too Close for Comfort

    I know a woman in her late 40's who (similar to Mia) is half African-American, and the other half is (mostly) from India. [She is not a friend.] I'm white, and I've heard white racists talk. (I don't like it.) But I have never in my life heard anyone go on a more racist (anti-black) rant than the woman I just mentioned!! She doesn't even bother to be subtle, perhaps because everyone who sees her assumes she's 'black,' and they don't want to offend her. But she has some really ugly, hateful, stereotypical things to say about black men, and she says it with venom! At the time I first became acquainted with her, she was single and out on parole (but she almost never talked about the reason for that). She was very vocal about her extreme Christian devotion, and how much she loved singing in her church choir, how it "fulfilled" her. She even talked some reporter for the local paper into writing articles about how she had 'turned her whole life around,' had found a job, and was taking college classes --hoping to become an attorney some day. She was lauded as a good example for others to follow. I'm certain she never told that reporter how she felt about dating African-American men. But, for some reason, she chose to tell me. She was very angry that I didn't applaud her racist attitude, and even angrier that I dared to comment that by never-under-any-circumstances dating anyone with African blood, she was ruling out some good Christian men. Eventually, she got a scholarship to a Christian-oriented university where she convinced a white college student about 20 years younger, to marry her. She no longer shows up in church on a regular basis and sings in the choir. And she dropped out of college after getting married (or so I've been told). Mia has already admitted on TV that she has lived with a man in the past. I don't think those were her decorating choices.
  15. Speaking of lies... I would be shocked if Dave telling Amber no other woman had ever lived in that apartment with him before wasn't a flat-out, bald-face whopper of one!! (And yes, I re-watched that part. Dave did take a big gulp of his drink before half-smirkingly telling her that.) So, yeah, I agree with you. If she truly feels that way, Amber should insist on sleeping in a whole new bed... and then never mention it again! Because the best she can possibly hope for, is that Dave is (shockingly) willing to let the past stay in the past. I mean, even Mia admitted that she had "lived with someone" in the past (--probably the 'ex she's accused of stalking).
