Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars is back again. New year, new relationships that may need saving. On the season 7 premiere the couples wasted no time airing their dirty laundry. Mob Wives alum Renee Graziano and her boyfriend, Joey Gambino; Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star PreMadonna and her fiancé, Buck Thomas; Bachelorette married couple Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum; Bad Girls Club vet Gabi Victor and her boyfriend/baby daddy Victor Tarrats; and 19 Kids and Counting alum Amy Duggar and husband Dillon King. After everyone arrived at the house, they shared a bit about what brought them to boot camp in the first place.
Renee and Joey had kept their relationship a secret because he wasn’t ready to fully commit to her. He was also friendly with her dad, which further complicated matters. PreMadonna and Buck was that they had been engaged for over a year but hadn’t set a wedding date yet. Amy and Dillon struggled to fight fair, and their arguments often ended with one of them saying something they both regretted later. The top thing Amy regretted saying? “I don’t want to have kids with you.” (Yikes — don’t let Jim Bob and Michelle hear that!)
Gabi and Victor were at each other’s throats from the moment they walked in the door. In their video packages, he said he felt they had no relationship together beyond their child, and called her a bitch. Then came JP and Ashley.
Despite a storybook courtship and wedding, followed by the birth of their son, JP and Ashley were struggling to keep their marriage afloat. He felt that since they had a baby, she didn’t pay attention to him, and she didn’t like his continual condescending tone.
During a staged press conference, Ashley admitted, “After we had our son, Ford, life tore us apart.” JP added, “I don’t even feel like I come second to Ford.” He went on to say he didn’t even feel that he came third, fourth or fifth. Though Ashley first said he did come second, upon further prodding she conceded that after Ford came her mother and her sister, so he was … fourth? Ashley estimated he held the slot marked 3.5, but even by her own count, that wasn’t exactly true. (Just for the record, for whatever lamentations JP had about Ashley being too focused on their son, since the show taped, they welcomed their second child, a daughter named Essex.)
Another dramatic moment in the “press conference” came when Amy and Dillon inadvertently revealed they had an alleged history of violence and borderline animal cruelty. “Amy sometimes takes a swing at me,” Dillon said in a pre-recorded video, which was aired for the press. This prompted Amy to explain that she had only hit him once, after he “slammed” their cat on the table. “If you’re going to treat a poor little innocent kitten like that, I do not want kids with you,” she said.
Pressed by reporters for more details about the time she hit her husband, Amy sighed and said, “You had to be there.” Dillon’s video ended with him calling her a “bitch.”
During the conference, Victor pointed fingers at Gabi for her mothering abilities (or lack thereof). “Your mom has to remind you ever day when to put your son to sleep and when to change his diaper,” he said. She insisted that wasn’t true, and he was “delusional.” Then she added that just because he saw his son every day didn’t make him a good dad.
When they got back to the house, Gabi broke down in tears, and Renee comforted her. Making matters worse for Gabi, she whined that she has the “ugliest cry face” ever.
Each couple’s room had a theme that reflected their current issues. Ashley and JP’s room was outfitted more like a nursery than a suite for adults. Not surprisingly, JP didn’t like it, but Ashley was smitten. She thought it was “fun” and called it a “reminder” of Ford.
It seemed there was a pretty big disconnect between them, however, because Ashley commented that their day-to-day lives were “very happy.” When she saw JP’s face after she’d made that remark, she added, “Or I’m very happy.” JP didn’t say anything, and his silence spoke volumes.
Black Ink Crew Young Bae
Black Ink Crew, the hood came out of Young Bae on the last episode of the hit reality show and Sky is partly responsible. Her ratchet and hood behavior really needs to stop, she’s too extra and she seems like she is running Black Ink and not Ceaser.
But again, I digress, the Black Ink crew loves to throw parties but this time it was for a good cause. Young Bae hadn’t been able to get in touch with her mom who stayed in Korea with her dad. She wants to find out what’s going on with her mom because her dad was very abusive to her mom and her siblings. She left Korea at age 16 with $80 in her pocket and came to America, so she’s had it rough but look at her now. Kitty suggested they throw a costume party and the proceeds will go to her so that she can fly to Korea and check on her mom.
With all Black Ink parties, their is a fight waiting to happen and this party was no different. It went all the way left in 2.5 seconds with Bae beating a b$tch a$$. Sky decides to hire a new manager for 113 without Ceaser’s okay or his permission. She wants to get her ratchet a$$ back down to Atlanta,so she hired the first thing smoking without even checking her art work or her resume. HELL she could have hired me if that’s all it took but back to the story, during the costume party Sky arrives with the new manager whose name is Tatiana, she never introduced her as the manager, she just brought her in and this chick took over like nobody’s business.
Sky wanted Tatiana to fit right in with the shop but that’s only because she had her own motive, getting back down to the dirty south. Tatiana supposedly has a lot of experience managing tattoo shops, Sky loved her personality and she felt this chick would fit right in. Wrong move, she was way too aggressive, approaching Donna and Bae about tatting people to make money when she didn’t even know the reason for the costume person nor did they know who she was and why was she in the shop barking orders. She said something smart and Bae tapped that a$$ along with Donna and Jadah. Once the fight ended, Sky sat looking like humpty damn dumpty, Ceaser needs to wake the HELL up before Sky’s destroys Black Ink’s reputation.
Sky brings Tatiana back to the shop to apologize to Bae and the rest of the crew but mostly Bae. Young Bae didn’t owe this girl any explanation at all, she came in her face way too aggressive, however after she apologized Bae explained her situation, she understood why Bae jumped her, she explained to the crew that she was there to clear the air and to have fun and make dope tattoos. She then decides she’s going judge Bae and Alex’s tats giving them compliments but with Donna, she wasn’t impressed but real talk, know is ever impressed with Donna’s tats. Tatiana won’t last another week if she continues with that piss poor attitude.
Little Women ATL Recap
Little Women Atlanta recap!! These ladies are small but they are very feisty, I guess being small and having to deal with their height or their weight, it makes them defensive which is understandable. However, by them being small, you would think they would all stick together and support each other but I guess jealousy and envy comes in all shapes and sizes.
Monie decided she wanted to surprise her husband Morlin for his 37th birthday by learning to dance sexy in lingerie. When she said she had to left feet, she wasn’t lying. It was funny watching her try and learn those dance moves, maybe she’ll be on the next season of Dancing With The Stars.
Tanya is having issues with trying to take care of her three children since her c-section and she needs more help. My issue with Tanya, why is she having babies so close in age and by different baby daddies? One of children’s father is living with her while going to school. He is doing the best he can to support her and another man’s baby, they aren’t together allegedly but he was there for when she gave birth to her third child and the father who is the child’s parent was nowhere around. So she decides to send her two toddlers to Washington D.C. with Vaughn one of her children’s father until she can heal from her c-section. Nico arrives at the house, the other baby daddy and she tells him that Jaidan and Luna are leaving and going to Washington, D.C. for three weeks. It’s not like he really cares, he’s never around and he doesn’t give her much money anyway for his children. I wouldn’t have told him anything, he knew she needed help but he wasn’t there for her but again, she continues to keep these babies and now its too much for her. I hope she got her tubes tide, she has two many babies for an average sized woman.
I don’t like that damn Minnie, she is as fake as f$ck and a liar. All of a sudden, she wants to be a radio personality when she’s a hairstylists. She needs to figure out what she wants to do with her life for real. Every week its something with Minnie, she wants too lose weight, she wants to run a marathon, she lied about being pregnant and now a radio personality? She needs and craves so much attention that it makes her an ugly small person from the outside. Her veins are showing and the twins really need to slowly back away from her, she’s too damn toxic.
Monie’s surprise birthday party for Morlin, she wanted everyone to wear white, they all looked really nice. Everyone was having a good time until Sam approached Minnie about her bad attitude towards her, but Monie was able to prevent anything from going crazy. This was Morlin’s night and she was ready to perform her sexy dance for him. Monie came out in her sexy lingerie and heels and did the damn thang. Oh they got it on that night, he was in heaven and so were his friends, it was cute though.
After Monie performed, here comes Minnie wanting attention for herself when this was Morlin and Monie’s time. But, I digress, she announces that she got a new job, with Karlous and Chico Bean on their Podcast 85 South as a Podcast personality. The look on Juicy’s face said it all and I can’t blame Juicy, Minnie is always up to something. Even though Juicy is small and thick, you never hear her complain about her size, her weight, the way she looks, she’s always happy and she tries to be supportive. Yes, Juicy is messy as HELL, but her job is a radio personality. Minnie will never rise to Juicy’s level.
