It’s interesting to hear the different takes on how people saw last night’s show. Based on the response I’ve gotten, it’s like 80/20 in favor of “not a chance these two get married”, and I can’t say I disagree with that. Just seems like too many roadblocks and Emily just isn’t coming across as someone that’s completely sold on this relationship. Brad? That guy is head over heels madly in love her. Emily on the other hand seems to really like him a lot. But people who are Brad and Emily fans watch the show last night and look at it as: “Wow. They’re really being honest with each other and working out their differences. Whatever doesn’t kill them is going to make them stronger. This is really gonna work out well for them I can feel it”, whereas people who aren’t buying it look at last night and say, “Whoa. That was a disaster. These two have some major, major issues to deal with and it doesn’t look like this is gonna end well.” Just like everyone has their favorites on “DWTS”, or “Idol”, it’s really no different with this show. People who love these two together will put together any argument in favor of them getting married and staying married for the next 50 years. Those against it pretty much just laugh at that notion.
So when they brought Emily out, that’s where it got extremely uncomfortable. Yes, Emily was honest and showed a side to her we didn’t see all season. But man, it was almost too much. Obviously, the fact that if these two are going to last she would eventually have to move to Austin is a point of contention with these two and Emily flat out stated if you asked me now could she do it, she’d say no. Ok, that’s perfectly fine. I accept that. Then how in the hell were these two planning weddings in Anguilla or on that stage last Tuesday? This isn’t making sense. So you’d go marry someone who hasn’t even committed to moving where you live? It’s like the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing and vice versa. Did those two look and sound like a couple that was ready to be married after three months together? Who’s giving them advice? Where are their friends in all this? They haven’t had a normal relationship in the real world, yet they were on the verge of tying the knot? That’s what I mean when I say the vibe is that a lot of this was for show. Nothing they were saying on that stage last night made much sense. There was a huge lack of communication going on. It was almost like they didn’t even know each other.
Emily even admitted herself that her cold feet came from the fact that they haven’t had a normal relationship where people could see them in public and they could hang out. So how in the world was getting married even an option? That’s like a couple telling me, “Yeah, we just filed for bankruptcy last month after my husband lost his job, but we want to go buy a new house.” Not to mention, didn’t they state last night that it’s been a month since they’d seen each other? So couple everything I just said with the fact that these two had taken the last month off to kinda cool down and yet Brad wanted to have a wedding on Tuesday at the taping? Am I losing my head here? What the hell is going on? Admitted “knock down drag out fights”, their fights have been “volatile”, and “not everything has been roses”, and I’m supposed to believe these two wanted to tie the knot sometime in the last three months? With a child involved? And I thought “Inception” was confusing.
I remember at least two instances last night where I was talking to fans and they had questions about Laurel and her story. So rather than try and answer for her, I just went and grabbed her and had them answer them for herself. The people in attendance seemed satisfied with what they heard. My point being is that now that we’ve seen the ATFR show, are people starting to realize that maybe Laurel isn’t as crazy and out for attention like so many suspected? I mean, find me one thing in her US Weekly article that you haven’t heard to be true since you read it? The breakups, the temper, the roller coaster relationship, etc. Those were all things Laurel said went on during their relationship and those were all things that Brad and Emily talked about last night. So what exactly was Laurel lying about in her article? Nothing I can see as far as I know. Brad has a temper. Laurel said it, Emily said it, Brad admitted it. Laurel said eight years with Brad on and off was a giant roller coaster. Brad admitted three months with Emily has been a roller coaster. Laurel said Brad and her would break up numerous times and get back together. Brad and Emily have already broken up once, and probably won’t be the last time. All I’m saying is that all Laurel did was tell everyone what to expect (in particular Emily) when you date this guy. Nothing she said is nothing Emily hasn’t already experienced in her first three months with him, so I don’t know why that would make Laurels story not credible? As I’ve said numerous times in the past, just because you get paid for your story doesn’t mean it’s not true. Sure, Laurel got paid, but everything she said you heard repeated on the ATFR show.
