3-12: "Rhyan and Malia" 2006.08.27 (recap)

I don't know who these new editors are, but they may be worse than the old editors. At least the old editors blew little things out of proportion and created quasi-drama, this episode was beyond boring and they still haven't addressed the show's general flaws.

I honestly didn't see that much resembling undying love. And I'm really curious to know what "I'm not getting married again" means.

Are they legally married or not? She insisted on their friends officiating the ceremony but are they legal?
So she doesn't speak with her family. I wonder if it has anything to do with her drinking or self-centeredness.
As far as Malia goes I can just roll my eyes. She's very annoying and immature for a 31 year old. I remember when her fiancee played baseball. I think he was on the Mets at one point and the Dodgers at another.
Edited because I can't spell.

Good gravy, I hate Malia. That simpering, pouty, self-centered, whiny, bitchy, baby-talking, compliment-seeking act has got to get old, right?
I have to say neither me nor Peaches have a problem with Rhyan and Levitica. Except for the DUI-ing and the fianceDaddy, I a'int mad at her. Holding back your hair while you puke at your bachelorette party? Now that's my kind of bridesmaid.

Yes, they said that she insisted that they get ordained in order to perform the ceremony.

Watching Onur deal with Rhyan was a little window into dealing with an alcoholic...every single day. I'm sure Rhyan's family got tired of the alcohol and emotional abuse a long time ago.
I saw love from Onur towards Rhyan. I didn't see any joy from anybody.
Oh, yeah, Rhyan had a pretty devoted love for the bottle. The only possible good outcome of this episode is that Rhyan might see herself for what she is (an alcoholic) and get help...but I doubt that's going to happen.
Malia should just go away...far, far away.

Malia likes to throw back a few too. I wonder if she would cry less if she were sober. At least she didn't pretend to care about his kid tonight so I didn't strain my eyes by rolling them.

Yes, he did mispronounce her name, and I loved it.
Boring episode. Was it my imagination or did the dentist pronounce Maliaís name differently then the narrator pronounces it? Because if she paid all that money for a CELEBRITY dentist and he didnít even get her name right, that is too funny.
I hate Malia too, because she, more than anyone else, plays to the cameras. She keeps making comments to the cameras and mugging all over the place, and I hate her for it. And man, is she psycho. Her face was practically twitching with insanity when she was threatening the best man. She will continue to bug next week with that fake looking psycho crying. I hate that they are stretching her out yet another week. They could have passed on Rhyan's boring, non-zilla story and just finished up with Malia.
The only amusing part to me was when Mindy said "Rhyan's fiance Onur is Turkish", then it clips to Onur saying "My name is Onur and I am Turkish". I just thought it'd be funny if that was the only thing he said on the show.

Now, Rhyan...wow. They should be showing this episode in alcohol intervention programs. Was she classic or what? And could someone please explain to me why anyone would go through the expense of hair extentions for a wedding? We're not talking "make my hair look fuller," we're talking "pretend I don't have short hair, even though everyone who knows me knows I do."
One more thing. We've seen episodes where the bride had a "costume change" between the wedding and reception, but here we're seeing Rhyan put the same dress BACK on for her wedding lunch/reception two days later? What the...? I guess if the only people who saw the dress originally were the two people officiating at your wedding (how sad was that?), you need to wear it again.

Rhyan wasn't a bridezilla. More like Boozilla. Or Boobzilla. Or even Bubblezilla. Too sotted and selfish for anything.
Did you guys notice how she wanted the vows translated into Turkish so that his parents would understand, but then his parents weren't even there? That was odd. The whole thing was weird actually. I don't really get their relationship.
And I really hope Rich has an ironclad prenup. He's going to need it!

Malia is disgusting, boo.

Have we seen a more unhappy groom?
Posted Aug 28, 2006 @ 8:51 AM
Well she did say that they were going to see "this", which I took to mean "the video" or the actual Bridezilla episode. Which...not the best idea if you want to impress the inlaws and not let them know you're an ALCOHOLIC.

She said that the wedding was for close, personal friends only, which I guess amounted to those two people. And the Bridezilla crew. And the viewers. I'm sure the friends and family that weren't invited are really upset that they missed that whole thing. [/sarcasm]
Also, if everyone ending up at the reception two days later, why didn't they just have the ceremony that day.
I didn't understand getting the weave put in and then taken out the next day either. Maybe that's why Onur is worried about money. I'm sure they didn't do that trial run for free. Overall, I just felt sorry for Onur and Rhyan and am so happy that they were only on for one episode. I think I might have to go on antidepressants if I had to watch them for another week or two.
Dear Malia, you are the worst actress on the planet. The "performance" at the dentist, the "performance" while meeting the photographer, and the "performance" with the best man SUCKED. Don't quit your day job. If you actually have one, that is. And I'm even more convinced after seeing the previews for next week's show, that your boobs are as fake as your hair and your nails. I'm not even sure I buy that those teeth are really yours.

The reception didn't make much sense either. There is a reason you make the bakery deliver a wedding cake. And it just looked icky. The only thing that looked remotely fun was the bachelorette party. And that was a good bridesmaid.
The dentist did mispronounce Malia's name. I was a bit surprised they didn't do more work on his teeth. Veneers or something but that may have sent Malia (MAHL-ya seems to be how the dentist said it) over the edge. I wonder if she just doesn't know how ridiculous she is.
And the whole bachelor party discussion was so staged as to not be funny. And what kind of woman wants her husband to get liquored up and get a tattoo with her name? (other than psycho Malia). Ick ick ick. I do hope he gets it and the tattoo curse kicks in pre wedding. And I don't see why the best man has to take care of both rings. Best man seemed to take it pretty well - didn't smack her (I would've) but didn't back down either. I am guessing that the bachelor party is going to be pretty wild and the only place they won't hit is the tattoo parlour.

The reason for the transalation was for his parents to see when they visit Turkey in a couple of months. I guess they weren't able to make the "improntue" wedding.
I felt sorry for Rhyann and Onur...you don't get along with your family, and what woman wouldn't want her family around on her big day. Could it be they disagreed with her choice of Onur or maybe a disagreement with her drinking...Who knows...But this chick needs intervention QUICKLY...
As for Malia...her teeth looked fake...I mean, I have never seen teeth that white before...Well, when I used to color in coloring books and had to color the teeth of my character, I always used the WHITE crayon...that's what her teeth remind me of...Bugs Bunny white teeth!
The dentist seemed bored with her...and so was I.
She hit it on the nose when she said she is insecure when the attention isn't on her...WHATEVER...as I've said before, once the money is gone, so will she...

It also seemed like the upper half of her face didn't move whenever she smiled and talked at the same time...
As for Rhyan, she needs to get that whole "other identity" thing straightened out, and fast. Does Onur know about "Levitica"?
Posted Aug 28, 2006 @ 10:18 AM
So he knows what he is marrying. Hope that Green Card is worth it.
Posted Aug 28, 2006 @ 10:28 AM
Rhyan and Onur just made depressed about the whole institution of marriage. I mean many of these couples look like divorce will be in their future, but with these two it's a wrap. Hopefully she'll stop hitting the bottle before they have any children.
I know small weddings can be special, but I just felt lonely watching the nuptuals and baffled at all the complaining about the costs..what costs?. Where did all of the money go for flowers? Since when is a $200 wedding cake expensive? They should have ran down to the courthouse and gotten it over.
Is anyone surprised that Rhyan met her husband at a bar? That made her friend's toast all the more more funny (and sad).

I'm a black woman so I understand versatility with hairstyles. What I didn't understand was why she got the hair extensions put in and out (seemingly) the same day or the next day, only to have them put back in on the day of her wedding. Which, from the editing of this show, looked to be two or three days AFTER she got drunk at the salon. Now this could all be just Mindy making shit up for the sake of storyline and the wedding took place a month later, but from what it LOOKED like, she got the extensions put in twice in the span of a week. And it wasn't even cute either. That's another problem I had.
Hair extensions are as common as lipstick among African-American women. It's really no big deal, just something to add versatility to our hairstyles, so I wasn't surprised about Rhyan's hair, just surprised that she got drunk while getting it done.
They had a $2000 budget, and from what I saw (what happened to the handy little subtitles that tell you what the costs were?), it was probably spent on their wedding attire, her bouquet and the reception at that restaurant. They probably paid for everyone's meal and it looked to be at least 20 people there. There were a few decorations there too, so maybe that's where the other flowers were going to be and she just picked up her bouquet that day because she needed it first.
Why couldn't Onur take a cab home? Unless money was an issue, I wouldn't count on Levitica to be picking me up from anywhere.

Anyhow, I know people who have had extensions taken down and redone in the same week, however only because they were dissatisfied and wanted to improve on the look. Clearly we can see this was not the case. She ended up looking the very thing she said she didn't want to look, kinda ghetto.
Well if the budget was only $2000 I can understand, but Rhyan must not know what weddings go for these days because she complained like she was spending $100,000. She kept saying how expensive everything cost. Now, right now, $2,000 would be a huge budget on my means, but I know that overall that's a nothing amount to spend.

I'm going to assume that you can follow this editing better than myself. I thought she got her hair done once and because everything was so chopped up they would cut to Rhyan with hair then without out of sequence. But I'm sure I'm wrong because I just got tired of trying to figure the timeline out.
Yeah given how messed up the editing was on the driving scenes where they were having actual conversations, I wouldn't really trust the hair scenes.
I wonder who's apartment that was first and how long they have lived there because unless that was one of the apartments set aside in the building for workforce housing that was one expensive apartment.

As for the teeth, they're not that shocking because I live in an area where everybody and their mother has that kind of smile. Women like Malia are really common in my area and the best place to see them is at the mall during lunch. Trips to the mall are always snark-worthy because every other woman there is a trophy wife. The teeth, the boobs, the tan, the hair... it's all the same. Kind of sad, really.
I agree that the small wedding isn't a bad thing, but I also agree that Rhyan's seemed very lonely. My boyfriend thought it was a great idea, albeit with a few more friends and family. A big, poofy wedding gown is not appropriate for a beach wedding, though. It looks odd.
