'Rich Kids of Beverly Hills' Recap: Brendan Fitzpatrick Totally Messed Things Up With Morgan Stewart

Now, as I said last night, I LOVE Rich Kids of Beverly Hills stars Morgan Stewart and her BF Brendan Fitzpatrick. I want to sip chardonnay with Morgs and let Brendan talk me into buying a piece of luxury real estate that I cannot afford. (It will be like a modern-day Guy de Maupassant story! #tragic #french #moneycantbuyyouclass.) So imagine my despair tonight as Brendan totally missed the mark when it came to listening to his girlfriend. 

Morgan and Brendan wound up babysitting for Brendan's #adorable niece. (Note: I will try to keep this post light on the hastags, but I make no promises and for this I #blametheshow.) Morgan had a great time, but when she talked about motherhood with her own mother, Susan Stewart, she got a severe case of cold feet. She took her concerns to Brendan who misread her utterly.

Oh Brendan. This was not the hour for an ultimatum! It was the hour for blanket reassurances. This is what I would have told them both if they had seen fit to Facetime me as I have requested telepathically of them at least 10 times. 

Morgan's fears made total sense. She was panicked at the level of responsibility and scared at the prospect of producing a child with the severe emotional and psychological problems that her brother has. The fact that she was even WORRYING about these things proves that she'd be a great mom! She's taking the job seriously. That's what Brendan should have said. You know, along with telling her that they were a team, and that their kid would be awesome, and this was a journey they'd take together -- all that good stuff!

Instead, he was all "I can't be with a woman who doesn't want children." Morgan was miffed, and I can't say I blame her. She wasn't telling Brendan she didn't want kids -- she was confessing her fears about the future! Obviously family matters to Brendan, but he should have handled this differently. Rather than smack Morgan up with some relationship-threatening remarks, he should have talked it out with her. All my old-lady scolding done, here's this: I have no doubt that they'll make it through this patch and come out stronger on the other side. I am available to officiate their wedding at only a nominal cost. 

Do you think Brendan overreacted?
