Wow, what a ride. I don't even know where to start. Well, yes I do –- I apologize that this blog is seriously late. Work and life have been more than a little crazy these days, and that's all I'm going to say about that. Catching up quickly, here are my impressions of all of the ladies prior to next week's reunion.
Michaele seemed to try to deflect the fact no one remembered her as a Redskins Cheerleader by saying she had asked the organization to help her lie about her age. She stated more than once that she paid alumni dues for the last 5 years, and I have no doubt she did. That doesn't necessarily mean she was ever a cheerleader, just that she joined the alumni organization. Deflection was also used by Tareq over Dinnergate –- while Tareq said in the Bravo Clubhouse that he felt vindicated watching this episode, I wasn't aware that they were ever accused of giving false names or hurdling fences in black tie. Over and over we've heard, in time, everything will come out. When is that time? Time is running out, I think!
I've really enjoyed watching Stacie search for her birth father, and was really happy to see in the finale crawl that she has found him. Does anyone want to know whether running the license plate in the photo of her dad we saw last week helped? Don't know why I'm fixated on that, but no matter. Regardless of whatever future relationship Stacie and her biological father may have, knowing is better than not knowing, and I wish her the best for the meeting-to-come. She and Jason seem to have their heads on straight, and I've enjoyed getting to know a little bit about them on-screen.
