Wow. After all The Real Housewives of Orange County drama both on and off camera this week, let's check in with some former castmates, shall we? The explosive season finale of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars aired Friday, and among other things, Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley got REAL. Also in today's exclusive video, it's episode 4 of FYI's radical social experiment Married At First Sight, and one couple in particular is making me cringe with fear for them.
Six strangers created three marriages, with the help of four expert matchmakers. They've done the wedding, the honeymoon, and now they have to decide how to merge their lives. This brings up a whole slew of questions, both on and off camera. I tackle the moving-in episode both with logistical questions regarding the experiment itself as well as the logistics of filming it all. Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner are off the hot seat this week, for the most part, as it's another couple making me grit my teeth and want to scream at the screen. In today's video below, I break it all down -- both Cortney Hendrix and Jason Carrion as well as Monet Bell and Vaughn Copeland have issues that need to be addressed.
Also today, Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars came to its shocking conclusion. This series grew on me, and in today's episode, I compare and contrast it with others, as well as a comment on some very clever follow-up programming decisions made by the network, WeTV. One Boot Camp camera operator deserves a BIG high-five, there are some "how do you film that?" moments, and a poignant, truthful declaration from Slade Smiley that goes way beyond the words he spoke to Gretchen on the show.
