Today's blog goes out to April who made me swear on everything I owned and didn't own that I would not turn out to be like "Marsha"... Not sure who Marsha is? keep reading...
We've all heard the term Bridezilla but I'm not sure that we've all seem a real life, in person, Bridezilla in action. I used to think it would be funny and entertaining to watch a woman run around like a chicken with the ax stuck halfway through the back her neck. But after watching and episode of the "hit series" Bridezilla on the Women's Entertainment (WE) channel... I am totally ashamed that any woman would have it in her to act such a way. The show's website features a veil-wearing bride in a straight-jacket - an unbelievable site unless you have seen these women in action - more specifically "Marsha" the chick that is marrying a dude named "Archie". (This couple is not featured on the website listing - http://games.amctv.com/bridezillas2005)
This episode features Marsha, the WORST bride ever in the history of reality TV, who clearly needs to have her way and will get it at any cost, even if it means trampling over the feelings of her super-sensitive groom-to-be, Archie. While Marsha continues to stomp all over him, he responds by bawling and begging her to marry him. Huh? Right. You heard me correctly. And I'm sure this isn't a new, wedding induced side of her personality. It was just so natural for her.
So why did he insist on making a lifelong* commitment to this woman who totally disrespected and embarrassed him in every way? It almost made me feel as if they were getting married for the sake of having a wedding and for her to play dress up with her 15 bridesmaids (cut down from the original 22 she was planning to have). His sister simply played "mediator" to their fight, but let it be known that if either of my brothers try to marry a chick like that she will NOT make it to the alter!! And i still can't for the life of me, after watching this episode twice, figure out HOW this wedding costed over $80,000!!! (The episode summary is here - http://et.tv.yahoo.com/tv/14707/)
So, if anyone is bored on a Wednesday night (or whatever night it comes on in your hood), check out the WE channel and get a good idea of how NOT to act when your time comes!
(*) I put this in that sentence because I laughed as soon as I typed that word and thought about them not making it a month wihtout killing each other.

Today's item of the day is worth spending half a month's rent on - Summer showed this to me and I did everything short of cashing out my 401K and running over to Marshall Fields!
