Someone Got SEXAY
Woah, Tres Russell and Vanessa Nelson are really getting close – I mean skin close. These two are Married At First Sight’s SEXAY couple! And they had their first SEXAY time, too! Tres couldn’t look any happier when he admitted, errr BOASTED with boy-like glee “We consummated the F^%K out of our marriage! …I’ll high-five myself.” I’m going to guess he was pleased with their first time getting kinky between the sheets.
Father’s Day Fun
You’re sadly mistaken if you think when you get married you’re just marrying one person. Nope, you’re marrying into a whole family! SO, when it’s Father’s day and you barely know your FIL, too bad. You vowed for better or for worse. But when you don’t even hang with your father it can be a bit strange. Vanessa mentions she doesn’t typically celebrate Father’s day because she doesn’t have a relationship with her father. (Girl, I get it!)
But Vanessa was awesome in welcoming her FIL over and wanting to get to know him. The beginning of Father’s Day was going great: good food, good company, and good drinks. But apparently the drinks were a bit too good for Tres. Vanessa found her new hubs passed out drunk as a skunk. Um, not attractive at all. I would have had the same unpleased reaction as Vanessa. Women want men who can have fun without getting sloshed on the holidays!
Father’s Day Struggles
It’s seriously difficult to watch Ashley Doherty and David Norton struggle together as a married couple. It’s like these two just can’t get on the same page. Anytime David seeks attention from Ashley it seems she gets scared and pulls away. I battle with thinking he should just give her a few days alone to adjust. But then I think, oh no, if he stops trying to get her attention he may lose what little bit he already has. Hmm. These two are tough.
And what was really tough was their first Father’s Day. Like Vanessa (and TONS of other kids in this world with absent fathers – what’s up with men neglecting their children?!) Ashley doesn’t have a relationship with her father. But what’s worse is David did have a great relationship with his father, but he passed away a few years ago. When Ashley asked David why he was being grumpy David snapped back “Oh, God, because my dad died! I hate today!” Then he stormed out of the room. Ashley, completely shocked by his sudden outburst, went over and consoled him. For God. It was the first time I saw a light at the end of the tunnel for them.
Two Steps Forward, One Step Back
You’d think Momma coming over and pulling out sweet home videos would bring them even closer together. Nope. Ashley just got so overwhelmed by it all and pleaded with David to keep the mood light. Later, when David tried asking Ashley about how she was feeling, she practically begged him to “just talk about light stuff.” A frustrated David snapped again, “I’m asking you for 15 minutes of conversation before we go to bed or you go study.” Ashley just shrugged. “I’m not just going to let you avoid it.”
But David didn’t have a choice, she politely gave him the boot so she could study for an upcoming test. These two are having some serious trouble connecting. And if the day couldn’t get any sadder it ends with David looking into the camera “If this was one of my friends and I was giving advice to my friend, I’d say, ‘Man she’s not digging you. Take a hint.'”
I want to root for all the couples, but I am beginning to lose all hope in this couple. 🙁
So, What’s Up With Neil and Sam on Father’s Day?
Neil Bowlus and Sam Role have had such a rocky relationship with Sam questioning whether or not Neil was genuine on camera. She boldly tells Neil that she prefers the Neil she knows off camera who isn’t so politically correct. Frustrated, Neil shouts “What are you talking about?”
This is a topic that I think deserves a bit of attention. Imagine marrying a complete stranger. Now, if that’s not strange enough, imagine having big, bulky cameras swarming around you as you try your best to be normal and get to know your new spouse. It’s all a bit overwhelming. This may attribute to Ashley feeling so overwhelmed and Neil admitting that he talks to the camera the way he would speak to his grandma.
Dr. Pepper To The Rescue
Seriously, thank God for these experts. Dr. Pepper (life-saver for me and my hubs, too) stops in to chat with the newlyweds. Sam didn’t say much about her honeymoon other than it was “long.” Neil didn’t say much other than he felt like he was being constantly disrespected by Sam. Womp, womp.
Somehow Dr. Pepper has a way with couples. It seems she can counsel them to happiness every time. By the time Dr. Pepper left Sam and Neil were doing okay.
Neil and Sam’s Dad
These two are cute. They get along very well. Hey, if you can’t have fun with your wife why not have fun with her dad? Neil and Sam’s dad go to the gun range to practice shooting. “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people?” Neil asked as he prepared for his outing with a laugh. Oh boy did these guys bond! Neil says he “loves” him already and even considers him a “father figure.” Aww, so sweet!
My good friend Emily Miller would love this! She is so pr0-gun. Neil, if you wanna bond further with your FIL buy Emily’s book, Emily Gets Her Gun: But Obama Wants to Take Yours. Just have that lying around randomly and I guarantee you will get some brownie points from your FIL. 😉
What do you guys think of the couples? Do you think there is hope for Ashley and David?! Tonight I will be ABSENT from twitter. That’s right! I’m sorry, but my hubs and I haven’t seen each other in a week! I’ve been in LA finishing my book and you cannot imagine how much I miss him and my pup! We have DATE NIGHT planned (without social media) and I cannot wait!!! I will still blog my recap next week though!
Thanks for understanding!
