It’s time to check in with our hopeful daters in Rome and see if anyone is actually learning anything from this experience.
Shay is blaming her crabbiness with Roberto the night before on PMS. Nakita points out to us that there was also a great deal of wine involved with the situation.
Ashley just happens to meet a cute guy on a the street named Alejandro. He is already my favorite guy on the show. I still want to stab these girls for eating burgers and fries in Italy. Ashley is already talking about sex with Alejandro. She and Nakita want to go to a sex store.
Shay has a tennis date with Emiliano, a guy she met at the mixer while she was drunk. He did not seem that into her. But these girls don’t ever seem to pick up on that vibe. Shay has never played tennis. I admire her openness to try new things. She seemed to have fun. Then as they left the tennis club, Emiliano causally mentions that he is still married at the moment. How did this information slip by Diann?They continue on to dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant. Shay asked Emiliano when the last time he had sex with. He says about a year. Then she starts talking about masturbation. Diann really needs to give these women a lesson on first date behavior. Shay is also guzzling wine. He doesn’t seem bothered by her sex talk.
Meanwhile, all the other ladies are at the sex shop.
Nakita says that Angelo is too touchy feely for her and she needs to move on. When Kwame comes over to visit with Mercedes all she wants to talk about is Jesus. Kwame is not particularly a fan of Jesus or religious conversation so he heads back to his place to study.
Ashley goes on a date with Alejandro who is from Cuba. They have a very romantic date. Then they go back to her place and snuggle on the sofa in the living room. Things get very hot and heavy and Ashley walks him to the door.
Diann and the love assistants go to an actual Italian butcher with a wine and cheese shop to get some snacks for an afternoon with the girls. Diann talks to Shay about her drinking. Mercedes breaks down talking about why she needs a Christian man. We don’t really get the story on what Mercedes has been through, just the tears.
Next week, Shay asks Emiliano to send her a dick pic. I am not making this up.
