Is this show over yet? I love having something to recap on a Friday night but I must admit this show is a bit, okay a lot, ridiculous. Yet, I can’t stop watching. The fact that I know almost all of these people from other shows makes it interesting. We pick up where we left off with Roger and JWow arguing about some leaked tabloid story. Roger tells Jenni she should have listened to him and kept her mouth shut. Roger who up until now was getting a somewhat decent edit is throwing a fucking tantrum about there being a camera guy and them being miked. Um, Roger, that is what you signed up for. The story is the one I suspected about Jenni being pregnant. Apparently, they had not told their family yet and they will be finding out from the media. I understand that is pretty crappy but so is Roger’s violent outburst around his pregnant wife. I really think this marriage is doomed.
The white Oprah has already figured out that Jenni is pregnant because she has not had a drop of alcohol since she entered the house. This of course left more for Traci’s breakfasts. Jenni and Roger are both furious. Roger is furious with Jenni and Jenni is furious with the house. Jenni says the person attempting to sell the story is someone in the house. Maybe another participant, or perhaps production. So far that point is unclear. No wait. Jenni is blaming production. I guess she told them to explain why she could not drink. The producer comes out (always a sign of good drama) and says he was only made aware of the medical condition 17 minutes ago. All sorts of production crew and the therapists come on camera to deny saying anything to anyone. They have not told either of their families because she is not that far along but Roger claims she has told several people “in the industry.” That is the exact sort of crap that pisses Roger off. Therapist Jim gets Roger to continue to participate in the next ridiculous exercise.
Today’s exercise is about communication in the bedroom. Tanisha says she feels shy and uncomfortable talking about sex. The exercise involves getting on a bed covered in red satin and heart-shaped pillows and using puppets to talk to each other one puppet is sort of a penis puppet named Mr. Sausage and the other puppet is Mrs. Clam. This exercise is going to kill many brain cells just by watching. Gretchen goes first and her um, clam tells Slades…errrr…sausage that she needs it not so hard because it hurts Mrs. Clam. She also wants more than two orgasms per sexual encounter. Kevin points out that Gretchen certainly did not “clam up.”
Next up is Traci who has a donut puppet and Kevin gets the hotdog puppet. I cannot believe I am recapping this. Traci says she wants more holding and touching. Kevin wants foreplay, that to him means verbal affirmations that Traci is attracted to him and wants to be with him. Tanisha is the donut and Clive is the Mr. Weenie. Tanisha says she wants Tanisha can’t seem to get anything out. Tanisha want Clive to be aggressive. She is trying to say that she wants Clive to be dominant. She talks about him making her crawl or there will be consequences. So much for being shy. Clive basically wants oral sex. Trista gets a train tunnel and Ryan gets a train. Trista wants romance and affection. Ryan wants Trista to be more interested in sex. Roger is Mr. Sausage. He wants spontaneity. Jenni is Mrs. Clam. She wants more foreplay and less cave man.
The next drill is about communication and teamwork. One spouse goes blindfolded through an obstacle course while their partner calls out instructions. There is a shock device which is attached to both partners. They are told they will be shocked when they mess up on the course. But they are really getting shocked with they don’t communicate properly. I’m inappropriately gleeful about the shocking device.
First to go is Jenni and Roger. Jenni says she is worried that with Roger’s temper he is not going to allow her to take control. The therapist should have put Roget in control in the first place. This couple’s whole issue is Jenni trying to run everything. They do fairly well, but don’t complete the course within the ten minute time limit. Traci does the course and Kevin calls the shots. They barely make it half way. Next up is Tanisha on the course and Clive calling the shots. Clive just says….aaahhhh, ah…Ah… He can barely give a single direction. Tanisha gets shocked to death and has a fit. They don’t even make the first obstacle. Trista and Ryan finish in record time and never even got shocked. Gretchen and Slade do fairly well and were super close to finding the horn when time ran out.
Jenni has an event in Jersey to go to the next day and Roger is pissed. Jenni is putting her career ahead of their marriage and refuses to compromise at all.
Next week: Someone leaves in an ambulance.
