Matrimonial Bliss

Last night we were watching television, and after I watched a show about amazing cuttlefish, I flipped to the CW. The show "Hitched or Ditched" was on. I missed the first five or so minutes, and didn't know what the premise of the show even was until I just looked it up. Here is what the website says about it:

""Hitched or Ditched" is a one-hour reality show focusing on couples who are in long-term relationships but have not yet taken that big leap into marriage. Nominated by a friend who believes it's either time for the couple to tie to the knot or break up, each episode features a different couple who accept their friend's proposition to set a wedding date in one week’s time.

Throughout the week leading up to the big day, the couple is put through a series of personalized exercises that test their relationship, all while planning their dream wedding. They may have to confront their problems ranging from mending relationships with future in-laws to dealing with jealousy issues. When the wedding day arrives, the couple will make the final decision - will they tie the knot or call the whole thing off? Viewers will witness every emotional milestone as the couple decides if it's time to get "Hitched or Ditched." The series is hosted by Tanya McQueen ("Extreme Make-Over Home Edition"). "

What a horrible friend. The episode last night had Courtney and Anthony who had been together a year and a half. Their "friend" decided it was time for them to get married after a year and a half?? That person would not be my friend anymore, and I would not allow anyone to tell me that I'm getting married. Watching this show made me lose respect for the CW network. Why in the world would anyone promote this? Why push two people together who obviously need longer than a week to work out their problems? They had mom-issues, and ended up not getting married because Anthony's mother threatened to have herself committed.

This is his crazy mom.

This is the couple.

Good Morning America just had Kesha Nichols on their program to set the record straight about her break up with this guy. Here is an article I found if you haven't heard about it. She was engaged to Richard Jefferson (some basketball player). They have been in the tabloids for the past week, so she went on GMA to tell her side of the story. They decided together the Monday before their $2 million dollar wedding that they weren't going to go through with it. I couldn't believe how sweet she was during her interview though. She wasn't angry, or anything. She was peaceful. They couldn't get their money back for everything they signed contracts for, and her guests still came into town to support her, so she ended up still having the reception, but as a life celebration. I thought that was an awesome idea. She may very well have been acting on GMA, but she really won me over. She is inspiring.

And of course GMA doesn't have the video up on their site. Here is a picture of them.
