This first episode really starts things off with a conversation that has aspects that are some of the biggest aspects of this show. Chanel’s father and mother, Donna and Sam Omari, are such a traditional couple. You can really tell what a strong family bond the Omaris have and how much they are each a part of one another’s lives. You can really tell how much they care beyond words about Chanel, her sister, and fiancé. Chanel is being so helpful in this first scene with helping with the wedding planning and making herself such a big part of her sister's special day. Chanel’s imitation of her parents is really right on the dot. I really relate to Donna's wishes for Chanel because my mom has also said some of the same exact things. I also connect so much to Chanel when she talks about agonizing breakups and always wanting the fairytale and story that has a happily ever after.
As per my family, my father is always cracking me up. He is beyond hilarious and what my friends and I to call him “rog” “the man” because he is just so cool. I guess I truly at times am a daddy’s girl. That’s not to say my mother isn't my best friend too, and I can be a total mother's girl as well, but I am definitely a huge fan of my father's humor and personality. He really always has the ability to make me laugh. At my house, he truly is always yelling at the dogs to stop barking and is definitely the patriarch, manly Alpha male of the family. I was so glad to have Chanel over to hang with the family and have a little low-key relaxing BBQ. I did not realize what a real douchebag Chanel's ex was to her and how he has the nerve to be contacting her for more chances. She deserves better than this putz. She needs a man like her father. A true mensch and nothing less.
