Don’t worry it wasn’t a real proposal. But he did slide what appears to be a diamond on her finger and demands that she promises to uphold her statement after the show. Uphold her “willingness to see where the relationship can go”? I love his gesture but I’m a little worried about these two. Aubrey’s lips are covered in Shalana’s lipstick and when she points it out, he asks for some more and kisses her again. It’s a nice light hearted side to Aubrey we haven’t seen yet. He just grew on me. Steve gives Shalana her necklace which now says joyful on the back.
Danielle is up next. She tells Steve that she learned she can be soft and vulnerable and that she doesn’t have to be a ghetto bitch all the time.
I’m glad she learned something.
‘Cause dumping Corey for her pie in the sky dream of getting back together with her babydaddy clearly shows she hasn’t gained any common sense. She explains to Steve how the conversation she had with Kevin suddenly brought to life feelings that she didn’t even know she had. When Steve asks her if she thinks Kevin has feelings for her, she says she thinks he kind of does. Then she says she would rather know for sure than to assume one way or the other.
Remember those words.
Steve says he is thrilled to hear it, as that is what they want for her too. Then he tells her that they brought Kevin back to New Orleans to clear some stuff up.
You can tell from the look on her face she didn’t
mean that bit about knowing for sure.
The video screen comes on and Steve is chatting with Kevin, who has dropped his hick hunting gear and once again looks tasty. He tells Steve that he is not in love with Danielle. He softens this statement by saying he doesn’t know this Danielle, she is a different, albeit better person, but he doesn’t know this woman at all. Then Steve asks the big bomb: “Do you want to be with Danielle?” Without the face to face pressure he felt in his dinner with her, he is able to honestly answer no.
Steve, you bastard, you just killed her fantasy.
She had at least a good three months of imagining what it would be like to be with babydaddy; dreaming up the scenarios of when and how they would hook up, where they would be when he finally realized he loved her and how they would tell their son together that they were going to be a big happy family. That was three months of wonderful masturbatory fantasies that she could have wallowed in before having to face the cold, hard truth. But you’ve just killed it for her in a matter of seconds and now she has nothing.
Can you blame her for quitting boot camp three minutes before graduating?
Man, I knew this girl didn’t like to hear anything other than what she wants to hear, but this seems a little far, even for that. Momma didn’t raise Danielle to be ghetto, but she sure does have a spoiled brat on her hands.
Melissa is next but the mood in the room has soured from Danielle’s departure. Melissa tells Steve that she learned that virginity does not define her. She understands that she has to be unique in other ways, since that affliction won’t last forever. And she also realized that it isn’t all about the vaginal tingles, as she once thought.
Hallelujah she has seen the light!
By the way, did they run out of hairspray for this finale, ’cause all the girls have some serious fly-aways.
Chris comes in and brings Melissa flowers. She says she has never gotten roses before and the moment is very sweet. She spends a lot of time thanking Chris for not giving up on her and being patient, since that is what she needed. Chris tells her that she has grown and become less awkward.
This is the face Melissa makes as Chris claims she is less awkward.
