Well Divas and Divos, we are about to discuss our swansong for As the Wedding Turns! But we have a lot to cover so get ready!
First I have to congratulate the bride and groom for making this commitment to each other, again. I’m sure it was a long road to get to this point and I am praying for their happily ever after. True love deserves it and those two are truly the epitome of true love. Now, let’s get into it shall we?
Was it me, or did Jen have a lot to say about me this episode? I mean, she doesn’t even know me other than what’s she’s heard and the short time we spent together as bridesmaids. Ya’ll have been with me every step of the way and every time I’ve been out of line, I’ve owned up to it, learned my lesson, apologized and moved on. Don’t you just hate it when a lone peanut from the peanut gallery gets ambitious and starts thinking it’s more than a nut? She had much nerve offering my services to run around for NeNe, didn’t she hear, I was recruited for the role of Creative Director! I already had a job. Perhaps instead of shadowing NeNe she could have taken the initiative to handle some of the details for her…. Maybe NeNe only had confidence in the Lebron James of bridesmaids… Yes, that would be me! I’m just saying.
I have to say I was almost as nervous as the bride so sometimes my way of handling things wasn’t the best. Charge it to my head, not at all to my heart. Maybe NeNe was still upset with me from Cancun and that’s why she wasn’t taking my calls, but she had to know that I had her back. I could barely eat or sleep the days leading up to her big day because I truly wanted it to be all she hoped for and I took my role seriously, maybe too seriously! I have to say I was a bit peeved when I got to the dry cleaners to pick up the gown and it was already gone. I mean did she think I wasn’t going to do my job? No matter what, I would have guarded that dress with my life! I was very disappointed that she didn’t at least let me know that task was already done. Oh well, she did what she felt she had to do and now it’s water under the bridge.
On a lighter note, wasn’t the moment when Greg and NeNe’s kids finally came together as one family beautiful? I’m a sucker for sentimental moments because I missed that in my life. People may call me selfish but I’ve been taking care of myself for a long time. Family is important and I’m just happy to see hers coming together the way she always wanted.
Anyhoo, I have to mention Greg’s bachelor party and that party bus. Divas & Divos in a word, it was ratchet! But Greg is used to strip clubs isn’t he??? (Side eye!) They did look like they were having a good time didn’t they and in the end he signed the pre-nup so I guess he gets a pass.
Well let’s get into the details of the big day? That pic of the ladies pre-makeup was a great idea, but if I’m not going to have my photo face on, can I at least let the camera capture my good side? And, a blind man could see my dress, with all the custom fittings did not custom fit! I honestly wasn’t trying to be extra when I insisted on seeing NeNe about it, this was her wedding and I’m sure she didn’t want my boobs hanging out in her photos. The truth is, I was nervous and wanted to be perfect. It probably wasn’t a good idea to bother her at that moment, but I just couldn’t think straight and didn’t want to assume anything.
But in the end it all came together didn’t it! The wedding singer was HOT! And when the bridesmaids sauntered down the aisle in all their splendor you’d never be able to tell that there ever was drama between us. And when they opened those doors… The bride was a beautiful sight to behold. She glittered in her golden gown and watching Greg and the boys cry was definitely about to have me mess up my make-up.
The ceremony was stunning and Judge Mathis handled it with his usual swag! Fantasia was a sweet surprise. That girl can sang!!!!!! The guest list was a great combination of who’s who in Hollywood and the ‘round the way crew. NeNe’s reunion with Kim was a nice shocker. I guess both women decided to finally let bygones be bygones.
NeNe’s reception dress was almost as magnificent as her wedding gown. We all had a great time, even me and Diana! (Didn’t see that coming did you? See what a little alcohol can do for you!) Did you like the shoes on the bed? Sexy right? Mmmmm Hmmmm. I had to help set the mood! Ya’ll know there ain’t nothing wrong with a little bump and grind between newlyweds! Lol!
Well, all in all, we had a great time. It was a beautiful day with beautiful people and I was honored to be in their company. So, this show is ending, but… wait for it…. Your girl is not done yet! You’ll be seeing Ms. Marlo again real soon! Stay tuned.
