Stress is good to a certain extent…it’s what motivates us to perform at our highest levels. It helps you appreciate the effort of getting things done and earning well-deserved rest. But on this week’s episode of Bridezillas I realized that there is also a need for something called a “chill pill.” It certainly would be beneficial to the families who have to deal with our Bridezillas.

Let’s first talk about Brittany. We have yet to see how her wedding will play out, but she is making her fiancé pay for the entire affair. From my perspective this has to be one of the ultimate Bridezilla no-no’s! Brittany shouldn’t be surprised if her honey moon is spent at a Motel 6 in the middle of Waco, Texas. No offense to the people out in Waco, but that just isn’t fair!

How many young grooms have $6,000 to toss around nowadays? Times are tough. And why bring an older woman to tears after she tried her best to make Brittany happy? I don’t care how old I am, if I ever made an older woman cry, my mother would be hitting home-runs on my butt with a broom stick. And then she had the nerve to say she didn’t know why Apostle, the florist, was crying! Strike 2! My mama would’ve thrown me in a cold shower.

Now Liza on the other hand, had a firecracker attitude. When she got behind the car to stop her bridesmaids from going home I just thought to myself, “Is that really necessary?” Now we have a Bridezilla who think she is the Hulk. Even if the bridesmaids tried on their dresses at midnight and they didn’t look good, did she plan on camping out at the store where she got the dresses to make her returns at 9 a.m. sharp? There was absolutely no need for that bologna. I wish Jason the best of luck and I hope the stress of hearing Liza’s yelling doesn’t drive him away from their new found union, but allows him to appreciate the effort of getting married and earning a well-deserved rest.

A lot of women say they want a “real man.” Well, my question would be “What is a real man?” Every woman has a different definition of what that is. Some women think a real man is someone who caters to all their desires. Others think that a real man is someone who is strong and macho. This leads me to Rochelle and her fiancé, Nathan, who got married on this week’s episode of Bridezillas.

Rochelle seems to be the type of bratty,18-year old girl who always wants to get her way. Wake up Rochelle! You will have a rude awakening, and I personally don’t think this marriage to Nathan will last longer than the sexual incompetence problem she mentioned more than once over the past 2 episodes. Nathan says the only thing he loves about Rochelle is the sex! Nathan sounds like a little boy that can’t wait to brag to his friends about losing his virginity.

Look at how many problems Rochelle had with her mom because her “dream wedding” was out of her parents’ price range. Soon she will have a dream house, dream car and dream children that all will depend on Nathan. She might want the new CLK 230, but you might only be able to afford a 1999 Honda Accord. Not shooting down your dreams there bud, but Rochelle is the kind of girl who won’t ever be satisfied. Soon you’ll be fed up with all the demands you can never meet. As a man, you have got to deal with her emotions. Not run away. I see your true colors and you don’t get my approval for manhood and marriage yet. Grow up!

If you watched this week’s episode of Bridezillas, I hope you are as proud as I am. Thomas…you the man! I didn’t think he had it in him. When Thomas yelled back at Jeanine, “You don’t shut your mouth long enough to listen to me,” it had to be the most glorious moment in Bridezillas history. Here is a man who finally gets it. If you recall my last blog, I suggested that Thomas raise his voice a littttle bit. Thomas raised his voice and Jeanine had what Oprah would call an “Aha” moment.

I had enough of Jeanine as soon as she said, “When I first met you I knew you would be a one night stand.” This should be one of the most momentous occasions of your life for both families. If I were your father, I would be ashamed and probably have left the wedding myself. Congrats to Thomas once again, but I think this episode had a deeper meaning than just the drama that unraveled. It teaches us what love is not. It teaches us not to place blame on anyone but ourselves, and that there needs to be balance. Too bad Thomas attempted to establish that balance a little too late. Maybe he will learn he’s a push-over and hopefully change his ways. On to the next couple…

Before I get to talking about Callie and Jeanine, here’s an important lesson to any woman out there: “In order to get respect, you have to give respect.” It’s an anthem Aretha Franklin made for you all back in the late 60s. Women can be catty and people can be mean, but what you can control are your own actions. Even when Jeroen’s family spoke Dutch, Callie assumed that she was being talked about. She cried and shined to Jeroen. Everyone else was always the problem. She always “tried so hard.” It’s the same thing I always hear with the women in my life. I have a younger cousin who switches up BFFs like she switches socks. Ask her why and she’ll say her friend started acting like a b*itch. Yet she is never the problem!

The problem was Jeroen’s family didn’t have a problem with Callie. She thought there were problems. When she apologized to Jeroen’s sister she didn’t like the way the apology was accepted. What more could anyone do for Callie!? The family respected her, they greeted her, they complimented her, but yet the issues remained! Women are usually not straight forward…they want you to figure out what they feel. Men are different. We forgive each other, we talk it out and then we give a big manly hug and a secret handshake that symbolizes our special bromance.

Keep it simple ladies! If you have a problem with anyone, talk about it. It might not have the outcome you want, but accept it for what it is! I know I’m not your parent, but when you have a problem give a little R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

For this season you all will be fortunate to get the male perspective on these Bridezillas from me. Many times my female friends ask me why their men treat them the way they do. Most of the time I find that these men have grown frustrated with the insensibilities of his needs and responsibilities. So hopefully through these blogs you wonderful women will gain an understanding about the way we think. So let’s get to it.

I recall Marlene’s husband-to-be, Jose, having no say in being involved with wedding plans until the cake tasting. This was his big moment to finally help with decisions. He liked the rainbow colored cake and she liked none. Then she had the nerve to tell him “shut the f*c$ up.” Later, they went to a friend’s house where they arrive an hour and a half late, but its okay with Marlene when it gets her friend upset. Jose compliments the cake and Marlene gets so mad she cusses Jose and her friend out. Does this all make sense to you? He does what is asked and is considerate, but is still disrespected. This is the problem with many relationships. As men do what is asked it is still never satisfactory to some women

This past Valentines, I took my girlfriend to one of our favorite restaurants in L.A. called Maggiano’s. We order a three course meal and when deciding on the dessert, dinner becomes a mind game. We usually get the chocolate cake, but I suggest we try something new like the Tiramisu. Tiramisu has a light coffee taste and she loves coffee. It’s delicious, and since she never tried it I thought it was a match made in heaven. She says it sounds “good.” I ask her what she wants and she replies, “Get whatever you want. We can try the Tiramisu.”  At this point the waitress notices my girlfriend is mad, and I decide to put my foot down and order the Tiramisu. Five minutes later she tells me, “I’ll catch a cab. You always get whatever you want,” and I am left to eat Tiramisu in candle light by my self. #WINNING. It sounds very impractical to get mad about cake to me, so I understand how Jose feels.

A woman will be a woman just like a man will be a man, but is there anything wrong with a good compromise? Why can’t we both make the decision together? I understand some men out there might be a bit machismo, but for guys like me and Jose we do the best we can with the headaches in our lives that we love.
