Welcome back for another episode. Hope you're enjoying it so far and getting to know our newbies Shannon and David and their family. I don't know about you, but I just love them. Go Aries!
Visitng their home for the first time for Shannon's dinner party was a lot of fun. I like "whooping it up" in their basketball court. I mean, really...a fricking basketball court?! I was so impressed at the amazing beef roast dinner they prepared as she is a fabulous cook. I love to cook too, so it was great coming to someone's home who didn't have it catered and actually made it themselves. Kudos to them!
I didn't like seeing Shannon and David bicker at one another. I've talked to her about it privately, and I told her how damaging it can be to a marriage and how I don't want it to end up the way Donn's and mine did -- in a divorce. I am proud of Shannon and David, that they have really taken the steps to do what it takes to keep their family together and have a healthy, happy marriage. Since we have stopped filming, they have taken a long hard look at their marriage thru the cameras eyes and I think it's just what they needed. You have to look for the silver lining in those little life lessons.
