BRIDEZILLAS (VOD Hidden Gem)
By T. Tara Turk
Last week I extolled the virtues of Amsale Girls and I hope you were able to catch it since you still can’t demand it! This week, I decided let you know that all shows are not golden on our WE (which stands for Women’s Entertainment but some of these shenanigans are gender free) TV On Demand. What’s a pseudo-women centered channel without some trainwrecks?
Enter "Bridezillas"! The name should say it all but, really, there’s more. I personally believe nobody should act like devil incarnate for anything remotely related to wedding someone because you should probably save that for labor, if you need to. These women, however, embarrassingly toe the line between felonies and assault (verbal and sometimes physical) all to have an AVERAGE wedding, not Platinum Wedding (that’s another show where brides spend deficit-like cash).
Porsha / BRIDEZILLAS (WE TV)
The episode I saw required subtitles. Sometimes it was because Porsha’s Southern accent was so strong that I felt like I was in another country and sometimes because the screaming just rendered her speech pattern unintelligible. Why is she screaming you ask? Is she mad about the debt ceiling? No, she is trying find out where Byron, her groom to be, is having his bachelor party, lying about imaginary stains on her dress and her own bachelorette party which might have you invest heavily in sanitizer.
