I am actually looking forward this Manzo’d With Children episode. Oh wait. It’s TWO HOURS and they are on WWHL tonight. I’ll have to wait on WWHL until tomorrow. Two hours is really pushing the fucking limits. I don’t think any housewife got a two hour wedding did they? Maybe Tamra, I think hers might have been in two parts. To go from half an hour a week to TWO HOURS is a lot. Caroline is clearly a great negotiator with Bravo.
After that recap of the Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion, I’m as brain dead as they are, so I’m going to be sparse with my comments and actually try to watch a little of the show while looking at the TV instead of the laptop.
Okay so this so far is two of the half hour shows. I’m not sure how the ratings were for this show but they couldn’t have been great because they are dumping out three of four weeks of show here in one night. I took an ice cream break while watching until we got to the day of the wedding.
That morning, Greggy Bennett starts popping the champagne. That’s just one more reason to love him. Lauren’s grandpa arrives holding his dress shirt in his hand, topless with suspenders on. In other random news, filming is almost over so Britanny will not longer be playing the role of Albie’s girlfriend. At least Chris doesn’t try that hard to convince us he likes girls.
Caroline says she is wearing a white gown to the wedding because Lauren asked her to. So y’all need to get over it. Lauren’s dress is gigantic and she looks beautiful. I love everything from the hair to the dress. Her daddy is so emotional, it’s heartwarming. I knew Caroline would be, but Albert is just adorable.
On the limo ride to the wedding, Lauren stops to get White Castle. I love it. Meanwhile, the guys are crammed into a weirdly designed limo. I support that stop. It’s hours until she will be able to eat.
She invited 390 guests to her wedding. She got caught in traffic on the way to church. This is the first time Lauren has freaked out. She arrives five minutes after the wedding is supposed to start. That is nothing. I’ve never been to a wedding that started right on time. Dina arrives looking lovely. I love the church. I am addicted to catholic churches. I must have been a nun in a previous life. Shut up. It might have happened.
Vito is crying as he walks his parents down the aisle but not as much as his Dad who is blubbering. The wedding was so lovely, and Lauren’s veil was literally the most beautiful veil I’ve ever seen. Truly stunning.
On to the Brownstone for the reception. Those 400 guest got kind of swallowed up in that huge cathedral, but at the Brownstone, the place is packed. The wedding party itself is huge. Melissa and Joe Gorga are there. When the newlyweds’ arrive there is no one there to help her get out of the car in her big wedding dress.
When Lauren danced with her daddy, everyone cried, especially her daddy. And well, me. Such a sweet moment. I love that Lauren wore that gorgeous wedding dress to the reception. I hate when people change. You only change when you are leaving into your honeymoon traveling clothes. The reception was elegant. The cake was elegant. There was no drunken crap. There was no dollar dance shit. There was no twerking. It was a classy wedding like they used to be. I’m very impressed with Caroline.
Then again the camera didn’t linger. Again, Caroline clearly set firm limits. The last 45 minutes are back in the family house with all the kids. It seems that Vito and Lauren spent the night in a nice hotel. Then they come home to Caroline’s and move in with her until they can save enough money to move out.
Well hell. I should have known, half an hour of this was for WWHL. I’ll go make that a separate post.
