And, now....for the first time......the Best and Worst Of Season 1!
Julia. Yes, she really did wear horns, and say "Listen! Listen!!" And, everybody hates her as much as she loves herself. Even Alan can't stop rolling his eyes in disgust at her presence.
Most Showy Display of Excess:
Brooke and the $25k clambake. The least she could have done is look happy to be there, and at least watch out for party crashers. Does anybody even remember if she ate anything, or was she just too nauseous at the prospect of marrying Charlie?
Daddy's Little Girl Award:
This one goes to Amy. Throughout all of the planning, not one word was spoken about the expense, because Nancy Montserrat did mention that her Father is paying for everything. With all of that rehearsing the speech for her introduction, both herself and her Mother must have browbeat the poor, dear sweet man into submission.
Most Obvious Display of Greed:
Vanessa. As if a $30k wedding set wasn't enough.....she had to fall in lust with the $8k necklace. Since it is obvious Dan is paying for everything, why not just throw that little bauble in, and cry the world's fakest tears in front of everyone while it is presented to her in front of friends and family?
Erez. Handsome as all get-out, but brooding, dark and moody. He makes Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice look light-hearted and sunny in disposition by comparison. Quite frankly, the guy scares me.
Least Affectionate Couple:
Joe and Miho. She probably wears burlap and barbed wire around the vital parts to bed each evening, to paraphrase Bill Cosby. On watching the both of them, it is easy to see that Joe is far more enthusiastic about this union. So obvious to tell that Miho is just cooling her heels so that she can get her citizenship, and, the hell out of there.
Most Likely to be a Porn Star:
Michelle. Between playing with her chest, and flashing her boobs at her ex, she is just waiting for the right moment to be an exhibitionist.
Kathleen. Her pregnant bridesmaid was not only balking at walking down the staircase, but just needed to be forcibly pushed down them a-la Scarlett O'Hara. And, FYI, nobody I know of has died from being subjected to one single waft of the aroma of second-hand smoke. Unless they were on a ventilator, or severely allergic.
Kathleen. Remember when she said that a woman's voice had answered the phone in her fiance's hotel room? Please...if she doesn't trust the guy completely, why marry him? Thank goodness that the lady turned out to be his sister, I do believe, but letting an imagination run away with her is a bad, bad thing.
Tricia. Between the "edgy" ponytail, the hairstylist, the loft location, the dress, and the minutest details, the only thing classic about the wedding was the Tiffany blue boxes as well as the church. And the photos in the meat-packing district just spoke volumes about how she tried too hard. Who wants wedding photos with dried blood and graffiti in the backgound? Not I!! The coolest thing about her wedding was her family.
Emmet. Between the sexist pig comments,the $5k trip to Vegas, hanging out with his buddies to trash women even further, and the beer drinking before the wedding, all of us know he can't be serious. (To paraphrase Phenobarbara->)Seriously steeped in frat-boy behavior, but not at all serious about acting like a grown-up.
Karen. She poked, prodded, pulled, and made faces at her wedding gown. She drove the designer and the fitter to the brink of insanity. I loved it when Kathy smacked her hand and said, "You analyze your boobs too much." She just analyzed EVERYTHING too much. Emmet's behavior only added fuel to the fire, so he can easily take 75% of the blame.
Best Wedding Planner:
A tie. The vote goes to both Kate and Stacy. Kate did a great job of making sure that everything was perfect, and wasn't afraid to go postal on people if they didn't do as told. Stacy put up with Julia's demanding behavior with a positive attitude, a smile, and the patience of a saint.
Most Supportive Mother:
Cynthia's Mom. I really liked her. She was very sweet and calming, especially during the dress debacle, and she genuinely cared deeply about her daugher.
Brooke and Charlie. Between the very high temperatures, the lack of happiness on the part of the bride, and the moody French videographer, along with the issues with the cake, all of that money spent on the wedding left me unimpressed. Again...do Brooke and Charlie really love each other, or does that guy look like George Clooney when he stands on his wallet?
Most Over-The-Top Wedding:
Julia and Alan. Only A-list celebs hire a choir to sing at their wedding, and the limo honking "Here Comes the Bride" is just a little bit too much. The dress was excessive, and the reception site looked like artifical-flower, white trellis , tacky plastic swan, 80's crap.
Amy. When the car was getting ready to drive away to the reception, she didn't care whether or not her husband was comfortable. All she cared about was whether or not her makeup looked OK. And, she forcibly shut him completely out of the wedding plans altogether. Ooo, I couldn't stand her!!
Most Likely to Melt Down:
Cynthia. It was obvoius she was under a lot of stress, and I am so surprised that she didn't lock herself in her room and just sob uncontollably. In the end, the only tears that were shed were over her dress. I think the alcohol consumed at her bachelorette party helped somewhat, although I could not imagine allowing myself to be hung over on my wedding day.
Joe. Wow, was he ever a stickler for doing his best to try and impress his in-laws. Everything had to be some kind of "brand name". It didn't hide the fact that he is a total dork, and his bride hates his guts. The Mother and Father of the bride didn't even crack a smile, for pity's sake. Maybe it had something to do with those God-awful topiaries at the entrance? If my first sight of my daughter's wedding was the grass-covered ass end of a moose, I would not have high hopes for my evening, either.
So, there you have it...the Best and Worst of Season 1!
