And I loved the stuff where my family finally meets Brad's mom and sister. I'm very close with my family and love them very much, so it was really important for me that they have a good experience while filming. We both appreciated that it was a lot to ask of both our families to meet each other after all this time (weird, I know!) on camera. But everyone got the celebratory spirit with which we were approaching this, and it ended up being so much more special that it kind of did make it worth the wait.
I knew my mom and Debby would hit it off and was so glad to see their conversation in my parents' kitchen. We had so much fun and both moms have stayed in touch since that day, which makes me very happy. And I was totally right about the dates of everything discussed on the show and usually always am right about that stuff as I have a great memory.
What a pleasant surprise. I expected to enjoy watching Brad, as I always really liked him on the other show, that shan't be named. However, what I didn't foresee, was how charmed I would be by you Mr. Janetti! Your wicked sense of humor is delicious! Thanks for sharing your lives with us. The show has become my guilty pleasure. Don't tell Brad but your my favorite! ;-)
Gary, I think you and Brad are a great couple and I really enjoyed the family "meet up" which does seem ridiculously long in coming - 10 years? Good luck to you both as you navigate the world of reality TV. Cautionary tale in the Kardashian family on that!
I'm from Brooklyn Gary and we totally had blackout cake! Its a NYC thing, along with rainbow cookies I think!
True story: I have been following you on Twitter for a while & you are one of my fave Tweeters - snarky, sarcastic, FUN-NY! It was just THIS WEEK that I looked at your Twitter profile and thought... hmmm, why does he look so familiar? ... Google, IMDB, and lo and behold!! You're "Brad's Gary!" Get out!! Small world, huh? Also true story: Mi familia es su familia (ok, mixing metaphors/languages, whatever). Basically, you hit the maternal nail on the head with the need for gushing and repeated compliments whenever an Italian woman makes you a meal. As my own mother used to say about my brother-in-law: "God bless him. You could feed him s--- on a shingle and he'll sing your praises about how good it was. He was raised right." (Oh and the arguing about timelines is dead on too - it's really the only thing that will drive my sister and I to scream at each other! And, of course, she's always wrong...)
I've never commented on a Bravo blog before, but I simply can't help myself. You have one of the quickest and sharpest sense of humor I have ever seen. The banter between Brad and yourself makes me laugh and smile so hard. (I might have to send you my next botox bill) I'd love to know what shows you write for. Any chance you could share that with us in your next blog. Till then, cheers to black out cake,, oh I mean,,, cheers to you and Brad .
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE BRAD! HE looks so much like my son.I laugh,and,yes! CRY every time i see him cry : ( He even laughs like my son.I hope and PRAY to GOD in JESUS CHRIST name that Brad has success BEYOND his wildest dreams.His heart is so kind,loving,and,gentle.DO NOT pay any attention to any negative crap as all STARS get good and bad publicity.It comes with the territory.Chin up!!!!!!!!!
