I’m kind of sad more of you guys didn’t watch this series. I feel like I missed a couple of episodes. There were episodes that were only fifteen minute long on my VCR. So, I am going to pause to catch up on things before I write this MAFS Australia recap. Not sure what episode it is that Michael finds out that out that Stacey cheated but I really wanted to see that part. I’m starting at the reunion dinner party, let’s hope it happens there. Oh yay! This is the episode I thought I missed!
Seb is moving to live with Lizzie! They seem really happy. So do Stacey and Michael for now. Before arriving at the dinner party, they tell us they are strongest couple. Mikey is very nervous about the dinner. He wants to let everyone know he hooked up with Stacey after he broke up with Natasha. He called Natasha before the dinner party and told him what happened. She is still pissed and wants to call him out.
The Dinner Party
I totally had no idea who Poppy was when I saw her. Has she gained weight? I really like Luke. These two are being civil at least. I had no idea who Cathy was either. Some of the girls look like entirely different people. Connie looks beautiful and confident. I’m sad to see Michael and Mishel arriving separately. Mishel is not thrilled to see Steve. Aleks and Ivan arrive together. Again, Aleks looks completely different to me. Apparently, Ivan and Aleks talk to each other everyday but still won’t admit they are together. There are more tattoos at this dinner than at a Harley Davidson convention. And, 90% of them are on the females. Why does Natasha feel betrayed by Mikey when they were broken up when he slept with Stacey? Mikey comes in and pulls Natasha aside and apologizes to her again.
Stacey and Michael are about to waltz into a shit show. I still don’t get why Natasha thinks she is the victim. Michael ad Stacey show up and walk in like they are the best people in the room. But no one really wants to talk to them. They of course assume it is because everyone else is jealous. At dinner I am grossed out by all the people chewing with their mouths open and talking with a full mouth of food. There is a lot of wine being consumed so it is clearly all about to blow up! Natasha is about to stop chewing on her hand and give a toast that will cause a huge explosion.
Natasha Drops A Bomb
The next thing you know, Natasha stands up and bangs on her wine glass with a utensil (so tacky) and announces that she wants to make a toast. Here it comes. She gives a toast to Stacey and Michael having the fakest relationship in reality TV history. And she toasts Stacey for fucking her husband on her one month anniversary. Jaws drop. It was a fabulous moment. Stacey goes straight into denial mode. Mikey stands up and tells everyone how it all went down while Natasha shoves food into her mouth with her hands. Stacey continues to deny. Michael basically says he needs proof or it didn’t happen. What does he want a video? Mikey says he has messages from her saying “sorry for bailing on you this morning.” Oh SNAP! Stacey keeps on denying it happened. Mikey gets up to get his phone. And the incriminating messages were read.
Stacey is so busted. She tries to worm her way out of it by spinning stories. Michael says why did you say there were no texts if there are texts? Aleks jumps in to say that Mikey’s clothes were dropped off in her room (I guess by Stacey) for him to pick up. Did he leave naked or something? Now I am confused. Ivan says he went out with Mikey and Stacey and they came back to his apartment. Then, Mikey and Stacey left together. I wonder where Michael was during all of this? Is that the same night he was making out with Hayley? Stacey apparently wrote leave the night it happened so technically it wouldn’t be cheating.” So now she is pivoting to “If it did happen, she would be saying he deserved it.” She also says Mikey is obsessed with her.
Michael Realizes The Truth
Everyone is turning on Stacey except for Michael. Michael reads the messages between Mikey and Stacey straight from the phone and it seems to be sinking in. Then Ivan tells him about going out with Stacey and Michael on the night in question. Ivan says that Stacey wanted to hook up for a second time on Snapchat and Mikey refused. Then Stacey called him a pussy. Apparently, that resonated with Michael. Steve points out that Michael is awfully quiet. Stacey asks Michael if the cat got his tongue. Suddenly, Stacey is yelling at Michael. He wants to speak with her privately and she refuses. And that is where the dinner party ends. I can’t wait for the reunion episode!
On the after show, Michael says just before the dinner party, Stacey had canceled her lease. They were moving in together. He had gotten to know her kids. It sounds like things are truly over. Michael said he knew in his head that it was done at the dinner party. Somehow Seb is friends Stacey now. He refuses to say his opinion of whether or not Stacey slept with Mikey. Next week is the final reunion. I cannot wait! Oh the lesbians are back for the finale! This season had way too many couples. I can’t keep up with them all. Connie is in a good place and still friendly with Jon.
