Couple Q&A

Tina, Tarz, and their parents share their reactions to the wedding day drama.

on May 6, 20130

Can you describe the proposal?

TINA: Sure, we could describe the proposal if there actually was one! It’s hard to surprise someone with a proposal when you figure out you’re getting married a couple weeks after your first date! Seriously, the very first time we went to meet Tarz’s parents, he called them and said something like, “Hey Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop, I’m coming over with that girl, Tina, who I told you about the other day-and by the way, she will be your daughter-in-law. So, um, hope you like her!”

TARZ: Yeah, it would have been tough to surprise Tina with a ring because she’s so incredibly Type-A. If she didn’t choose every little stone, color, angle of each prong, etc, it would be the beginning of the end. We actually did have sort of a proposal, but it was more like an SNL parody skit. Tina and I really love to laugh together, and since she already knew it was coming (and knew exactly what the ring she had designed looked like) we acted out the cheesiest most cliché ways to propose, such as dropping it in a glass of champagne, or putting it in a piece of cake. Then I would present it to her, and she would fake complete surprise!

TINA: Yeah, we were doing silly proposal skits and just dying laughing that whole night. We may not have a lot of baby-making action in our lives, but we have some serious best-friend fun together! It was as perfect as a fake non-proposal can be!

Im sure Tina wont read this but here goes...

    Tina.. you are a self-centered child! Grow up,stop thinking everyone loves you(they dont),treat people how you want to be treated. Your best friend is the mirror,You showed that on the reunion show..You couldnt stop looking at yourself in the camera,,by the way alcohol doesnt look good on you,,just sayin!!

Tina is emotionally damaged...she really needs to see a therapist. Those outbursts and constant rants for attention illustrates how needy she is and how she constantly needs reassurance that she's beautiful and needing to be the center of attention. Her responses to situations are just not normal and unfortunately if they bring children into the world, they will observe her behavior and believe that's appropriate behavior and consequently will behave just like her...so Tarz, beware.

Tarz and Tina you two are sooo annoying ! Tarz your a total doormat and Tina you wipe your feet on him every chance you get !  I don't see you two staying together for very long ! Tarz your married to a spoiled child who needs to grow up!  And you need to get a backbone Tarz !

Why does the dad hate tarz for being white yet he's marrying a white woman?

I think you could learn a valuable lesson from the photo shoot, you showed your vulnerability and Tarz totally responded. I think you two are a cute couple...no disrespect intended with the word cute, just relax a bit Tina and I believe you will get what you are after from Tarz. I think the FIL is a bit intense but he's dealing with the loss of his two favorite girls, I believe in time he will come to accept his new SIL and embrace the life they are trying to build.

I Like Tarz seems very layed back and a content, she is overbearing and forcefull she pushes her self at him and everyone for that matter she has to be the center of attention at all times very difficult to please BIG MISTAKE

Tarz, I understand why you don't want to have sex with Tina as she is really a 'he'. There is no way she was born a female I mean look at her manly features! Watching her is like watching a really bad drag queen show with the bitchiest and dirtiest queen ever! Sorry Tarz, I don't think you'll be having a biological child with Tina as I don't think she has the female parts to follow through.

Tina, I like the two of you but you are so over-bearing.  Look, I know you two are newlyweds and Tarz does need to make at least one night during the week and one week day devoted to you.  But at the same time, he is trying to run work and run a business,  Unfortunately, it seems you were traveling so much before the marriage and so you weren't around to see how much time he was spending on his work.  Stop whining and stop being so over dramatic.  There are a lot of wives out there who wish their husband had a job or were working (with the economy the way it is right now).  You should be able to plan something where you can get him away from his work even for a couple of hours one night......use your head and stop all the over-talking and bitching.

These two are so cute together. I hope they can figure things out and make the marriage work. I think they both need to compromise a bit.

on that first episode i really DISLIKED tina.  however, she's really grown on me. she seems to be very energetic, playful, fun. i hope she gets the baby soon.

Tina...hide your schedule from Tarz...scheduling sex turns him off...And he probably does not want a kid so he 'hides behind' working too hard. i don't buy it,.You have to learn how to not let him into everything and just relax and let it happened whenever it feels right. And if you uter one word about 'schedule' to make kids.....he will not participate. I can read his 'sneaky' way to let you know he is not into kids.

Tina, you are definitely an intense person, but i have seen a side to you that I'm starting to like. I saw your Up2 you video and was touched by your love for your mother and the powerful message behind it! You are more talented than I realized, it was cool seeing you in action on the show tonight. :)

I honestly thought they were portraying a transgender relationship. Trina screams drag queen. I give them 5 years tops. She's waayyyy too needy.

While I think this couple is extremely full of themselves..I do think Tina is funny and entertaining.  Tarz on the other hand, needs to take a break from taking Provigil or Adderal or whatever he is taking to get Poodledoodle off the ground.  He wears a shirt that says "Tarz" (even though his real name is something else) so he can talk about his little nickname, totes around his modeling pictures, is constantly self promoting his start up.  He is so full of himself!  I don't see how he could have room in his self-love affair for a wife.  Oh right...he ignores her all the time.  Run Tina!

Tina, I just have to ask if your lips are natural or injected? Women with big/full lips need not wear glossy lipsticks. It makes the lips look even bigger. Matte lipsticks are the best, in my opinion, for big/full lips. You're a pretty girl without makeup. So less is best. Just saying...

You two are a hot mess!!  I hope this lasts but I see Tarz/David becoming bored with Tina.  She’s entirely too annoying.

Tina you are incredible inmature !GROW THE $%*& UP !!  I honestly don't see you and Tarz lasting past the first year ! WHY ? Because you are selfish, self-centered and materialistic !! Everyone is always wrong, especially Tarz ! How and why this man puts up with your nagging  and whining ass is beyond me, you don't need a husband you need a servant !!!  And Tarz listen up no one can treat you like a doormat unless you let them !!!

Tina I have to say you are a loud and obnoxious person.  What you said at the wedding (because of a stupid cell phone) was so disrespectful and rude.  Your dad shouldn't be ashamed of Tarz......he should be ashamed of your big mouth.  You need to get your act together and think like a lady.

I like the show and I like both of you as well; I think you balance each other out and that's a good thing. I just think you (Tina) have to think before you speak sometimes; the cell phone wedding incident was WAYYYYYYY TO MUCH! Wow.

I'll keep watching though. :)

First point: Tina girl.... you are a bit bizarre and a little bit nutso!!?? I think with any other man a relationship would be literally impossible!!! I don't think any other man than Tarz would get you. Which brings me to my second point!! Tarz being as easy going, laid back and loving as he is makes you two the perfect couple!! It is an interesting combination. I think Tina's predictably unpredictable behavior ruffles you feathers, but Tarz responds calm cool and collected with love everytime. you two are a hoot to watch. Curious where you go from here

Yeah, I guess Tina is beautiful, but good grief if I were a man and had to listen to that shrieking voice for the rest of my life I would seriously reconsider my decision.  Pretty faces are one thing, but if you have to live with a shrew, that's another.  I agree with the other person who said that bedroom scene between Tarz and Tina was totally staged.  Who lays in bed, pillows propped up just so, and there's Tina......full on makeup and hair done.  Tarz had already seen her bare faced, so why not let it be.  It was corny and yes, scripted.  Ridiculous.  Makes me feel like Tina might be in to furthering her career, not making a marriage work.  The whole scene over the cell phone at the wedding was absurd.  Tina was yelling about an anullment as the scene faded to black.....Tarz should have been running as fast as he could.  Don't know what will happen with these two, don't care.  Tarz needs to "grow a pair".  Tina is obnoxious.  Tone it down, girl, we can ALL hear you.

Tina, I have a lot to say about your overall behavior...I don't want to seem as if I am personally attacking you... but let me give you an example of what I am going to say....I have a stepdaughter now 14 years old...she still acts like she is 10 years old...whenever I asked her to be help me around the house...when she does it she throws everything that crosses her path to get her message across...

.I think you much older than I am...you should know how to handle your behavior at every circumstances...my best advice for people like you is ...every action has a reaction...think before you act...

I like this show and the two of you are my fave couple so far.I do get both of your senses of humor,although Tina needs to tone it down a little.However,this IS Bravo we're talking about,lol.My husband & I both have a sarcastic sense of humor and we've been married almost 35 yrs(I was a child when we married tho,just 16).Also,is it just me or is Tarz really hot?! Anyway,blessings to both of you.

Tina behaves like a spoiled, obnoxious brat. She should be ashamed of herself with the way she speaks to her husband and whines to her father as if she was a child. I'm sure her new husband will grow a backbone sooner or later.....lets hope so.

Tina, any type of change is hard on your dad. He misses your mom. When you spring something on him that he would have talked to your mom about it leaves him feeling alone. I am sure you are hurting too about your mom, but you have Tarz to distract you. Your dad needs you. Tarz, you should be more understanding about their mom, they are both in pain.

You two are hilarious! It's obvious you enjoy making each other laugh and that is the key ingredient for a long, happy marriage. Tina's lack of a filter can't be a shock to her family and friends. They may have hoped she would conduct herself with more decorum at her wedding but those who know her couldn't have been that shocked at her reaction. Keep laughing, y'all! Oh, Dancing With the Tarz! Love it!

the comment about the phone was totally inappropriate.i sure hhope you apologized to all the children and told them that is was an accident that you should've said that and the same for both sides parents. I was shocked when I saw it. I mean really.it was a phone..they make them every day!

Tina, to tell Tarz that you hate him at the wedding party was total BS. Your dad feeling that Tarz should get off a phone call that is a business or conference call, the minute he wants Tarz is crazy!

I'm glad (hope) you're relationship is in a good place today. Tina, you keep saying it's your Dad's fault for your cell phone outburst, but really your reactions are your responsibility. Your dad was expressing concern that this might not be the right match for you (I don't think he's alone). Sure the timing sucked, but no matter what someone else says or does, it is still your choice to react. I've had to learn that lesson myself. I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother and I hope for you both to have a happy, healthy marriage.

I have myself  pleasantly surprised by this show! The two of you are absolutely delightful! I'm anxious to follow you on your quite unique journey! God bless & best wishes! I've no doubt it's going to be an unpredictable ride!

I want to believe Tina and David (well Tarz- or Tarzina) are happier now than on their wedding day. I can understand how tough it must have felt for Tina not to have her mother at her wedding, bless her heart. Watching the show back, I am sure the couples who take part on that show can look back at their journey and learn from it. I am watching this show from the United Kingdom until the last episode and I pray each couple grow together and learn to love each other for an eternity.

Ok...well....uhhh...I want to say something nice...but I don't know what....but here goes.....Mr. Bravo Boss, would you make this show short please....and the next time you feature married people, show them in their 30th year? Nothing good happens the first year of marriage, men are faithful, women are docile. Now fast forward to the big 3 0 and there are plenty of hi jinks to keep us satisfied as viewers. Things like....the husband has been hiding money and keeping secret investments, sleeping with the neighbor or co worker, surfing internet porn....and the wives are charging major amounts on secret charge cards, sleeping with the neighbor or co worker and surfing internet shopping sites....I won't be watching the show, because it looks way too scripted and I already dislike all of them....some parts had me channel surfing....and I home channel shopped about $85. Not good...

 SOOO true!! I watch the show because,I also am a newlywed. I could never imagine treating my husband the way Tina treats Tarz. She is selfish, extremely immature and full of herself.  She is obviously obsessed with being the center of attention,therefore,seems to say off color things or acts like a brat to receive the attention she needs. I cannot see this relationship lasting very long at all.  I do not understand how Tarz can deal with Tina's annoying behavior and her obvious lack of self respect and respect for him. SO SAD :(

judy@london

 @justanopinion

 I don't see that,not at all.I see Tarz just asking for mutual respect,the father-in-law just lost his wife and now feels as if he's losing his daughter,so it's probably just going to take a little time for him to adjust to a new son-in-law.I love these two together,they're my favorite couple on the show.

 Sorry i disagree with you I think her father looks down on him, And he is trying to please him whats wrong with that???? Her father is unbearable just as she is they both (HER AND HER FATHER) have this better than way about them both....It's weird...

 What a HORRIBLE thing to say!I think Tina is very beautiful,in fact,she reminds me of Camille from RHOBH (Picture Camille w/dark hair).Anyway,your comment is mean and disgusting.

EvilintheOC

 @wickedqueen1961@yahoo.com   I thought that too, but I think he is just a man that is still struggling with the loss of his wife.  It is probably hard for him to deal with his daughter being "taken" by someone, and he is left to deal with it on his own.  I don't think he has been fair to Tarz, but I can see why he he comes across so harsh...he is a man that hurts inside and doesn't know how to express it.

Also.....the part about the sister in law who said none of her pictures were in the brides photo album is so classic of what happens when a man gets married...his entire family will be slighted...will get worse and worse...especially his sisters....I have seen it in my circle....women need to do a better job with their daughters when it comes to this subject...their moms were daughter in laws, and many are already mother in laws when their daughter marries...I have dropped beads of wisdom to many bride to be about how they should include her future husbands family...they look like a deer caught in headlights because they were slighting their future in laws already...so clearly, these two will never have much of any relationship...that picture thing is a huge deal...the bride seemed very catty to me...
