Let’s take a look . . .
Gorgeous dress, gorgeous flowers . . .
Beautiful makeup . . .
verses booze-fueled lifetime commitment decision making . . . Yeah, I’d say this backyard wedding is an improvement. Plus, doesn’t Nik kind of look like a mischievious hobbit in this shot?
At any rate, they have a beautiful recommitment ceremony. The pastor/priest asks them to reaffirm their vows and then- and Nik has apparently written his own vows. He tells Shayne that his love for her is eternal and that he will fight for their marriage. It’s terribly romantic and everything that Shayne has wanted to hear. It also makes everybody weepy.
Shayne’s vows are sweet and hilarious. She goes the very long way to tell Nik that when she married him after only knowing him for 8 hours, she had faith that he was “her man.” But what she didn’t know was how blessed she would be, blah blah blah. She also tells him she will love him through rich or even when his credit card is declined. It’s sweet, and I’m telling you guys, I hope they make it. I really do.
It was a sweet ending, and it was cheesy and unoriginal to end with a “wedding,” but it’s VH1 reality not HBO programming. VH1 is all cheese, all the time.
Well, you guys. This is it. The show is over and I am exhausted. There wasn’t much to make fun of in this episode, besides what Courtney and Company brought. But I tried my best.
In short, I’d like to do our own little “process group,” and go couple by couple and see what we all think will happen to these guys.
Monica and Too Short (a/k/a Friends with Benefits and Too Stupid): These two will not last. I have a feeling that after EVERYTHING they’ve been through she will not be able to trust him, and he won’t be able to settle down. Yes, he was romantic with her on a gondola ride – but that’s a gondola ride. That’s not a strip club in the middle of the city. Can he be sweet, and faithful and devoted? I doubt it. And Monica? You deserve better than someone who needs to “think” about it. You need someone who says: You’re gorgeous, smart and successful, I don’t deserve you – you are too good for me, I LOVE YOU! Seriously, wait for that guy.
Jojo and Tiny: Jojo will leave Tiny for Mrs. Bacardi, and drown his sorrows in liquor and end up in the hospital. Or dead. Tiny, please go get some more therapy with a licensed therapist who deals specifically with codependancy and post-traumatic stress disorder (of course I am referring to her revelation in therapy regarding past abuse). You are a sweet lady, and deserve the world. Don’t settle for less.
