'Princesses: Long Island' Recap: Amanda's Mom Wants Her to Be Single Forever

princesses long islandIt's completely obvious that Bravo, aka Andy Cohen, wanted the focus of this week's Princesses: Long Island to be on Joey and Ashlee's dull and annoying feud, but let's be honest, the whole thing is extremely blasé. It's probably a punishable crime to go against the King of Reality TV's wishes, but I just can't talk about Joey and Ashlee anymore. Their fight doesn't deserve any more attention. I mean, how many times can we listen to Joey call Ashlee ugly?

Believe me, I like a good gossipy reality TV cat fight as much as the next gal, but unless you're flipping tables a la Teresa from Real Housewives of New Jersey or throwing drinks like Princess Chanel, I'd rather talk about my favorite reality TV couple that I love to hate: Amanda and Jeff.

Ladies, is it just me, or is Amanda and Jeff's slobbery relationship (literally and figuratively) starting to be totally awesome? Yes, they might participate in way more PDA than is socially acceptable, but they're kind of perfect for each other. Once you find a guy who wants to go shopping with you, you gotta grab him while you can! Amiright? Plus, I don't think there's anyone else on this earth who could handle Amanda's nasally voice (and nasally is putting it nicely).

The problem is that Amanda's mom, Babs, seems to want to kick Jeff to the curb. Jeff and his parents went over to Amanda's home for a nice family dinner and some homemade sangria (hey, Babs, do you think you put enough booze in there?), but things did not go smoothly. Babs had to chug a little extra sangria to get through the Amanda-and-Jeff-marriage conversation and went as far as to say, "She's not leaving me." How much clearer can she get?

The good news for Jeff is that I don't think it's because Babs dislikes him -- it's just because she thinks it's too soon for Amanda to get married. And let's be real, it is kind of soon to be talking about marriage. Didn't they just start dating a couple of months ago? Amanda seems to think that her mom doesn't approve because she's jealous of her daughter's happy relationship, but I think that's a little too narcissistic of Amanda to even think. Babs is probably just stressing about her first born leaving the nest!

However, Amanda is a grown woman, even if she still lives with her mother (oh, the chuckles), and she can marry Jeff whenever she wants to. If Babs doesn't approve of their relationship, Amanda might resent her mother forever, or even "block her from Facebook" (take that, Babs), but it doesn't look like it's going to stop Princess Koozie from marrying her prince of Long Island.

Do you think Babs is in the right? Are Amanda and Jeff moving too fast?

Honestly-- that fight is more interesting to me. As a guy who is forced to watch this show by my gf, I can not believe that this 30 year old woman called her mom and whined to her. I haven't done that since I was a child. That mom saying her friends are "jealous" of her instead of telling her to deal with it on her own and grow up is also part of the problem. Also (and this isn't coming from me-- it's coming from a friend who talked to me about the show) the real subplot in Amanda and Jeff's relationship is that Jeff is totally gay and doesn't know it yet...although I'm probably the one living in a glass house at this point for admitting I know all this stuff about this show.

Ashley is a insecure, entitled, pathetic individual who really has no purpose. She can't even make frozen broccoli and is basically worthless. Ashley get a job, lOSER!

I have really tried to get the point of this show..It seems to show women over 25 of Jewish faith that are trapped in Long Island.
I do not see any really money here..Get out, go back to school..Wow, stop whining..Andy is making a fool of all of you as a sterotype!!

No one should be promoting this show. These "women" are simply useless blobs of female protoplasm. They are JAPS and all that that entails. The North Shore is full of them.....sadly.

I say this has a Jew. These might be the dumbest bunch of Jews that ever lived

I just cannot believe that Ashley is really 30 years old.I was totally disgusted by the way that she responded to Joeys ' comments.Chanel is better than me because I would have let her crying behind, go home alone.As for Jeff and Amanda, their PDA used to gross me out..but now I think it's kinda endearing..
