She didn’t just write a whole fictional book about their relationship and every single solitary story she relayed about her time with Josh was just randomly taken out of thin air. Of course it’s her side of things, but to dismiss them completely isn’t being objective at all. She was engaged to the man. She lived with him. Wouldn’t the only person that knows what happened other than Josh be her? Whatever the case, Amanda made it clear in US Weekly last week that she’s not paying attention, she hasn’t read it, doesn’t plan on reading it, and will continue burying her head in the sand. To each their own.
-Amanda is crying after her talk with the twins, Josh comes down to comfort her, she says she doesn’t want to talk about it, Josh is confused, Amanda said she’s confused too, which is making Josh more confused. She relays what the twins said to her about him not being pure with his intentions, Josh’s blood reaches 250 degrees, and calls a meeting with everyone else there because Josh has something to say and he’s gonna say it, dammit. He asks who has something against him, why they’re interfering in his and Amanda’s relationship, and if anyone has something to say, say it to his face. Nick says he doubts Josh’s intentions, and because the argument was so choppy (they kept cutting back to Amanda being consoled by other girls), it was hard to get a flow of the conversation. But Nick made it known he doesn’t know if he believes Josh, Josh wanted a specific example, and Nick brought up the sleeping arrangement from the night before. Josh went off on him, accused Nick of interfering and being jealous because Amanda didn’t like him, and basically didn’t listen to what Nick said. This went on quite a bit.
-Then Nick really got Mount Vesuvius Murray on the verge of exploding by bringing up Andi’s book. Nick says he just can’t dismiss the whole thing as fiction like Josh does when the stuff she wrote about him was true, which was an excellent point. Now Nick in his Afterbuzz and Channel 33 interviews did say that Andi’s interpretation of what happened was different than his, but what she wrote is what actually happened. And I’m guessing that’s where Josh differs as well if he ever got around to reading the book. Josh has admitted he hasn’t read it, so he’s just going off what people (his mother) are telling him is in it. But it’s utterly ludicrous for Josh to condemn Andi’s book and call it fictional when he has never read it. That’s just about the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Probably hasn’t read it because he doesn’t want to look in the mirror and have to remember what he said and did.
-Even though this will never happen, at least publicly, is Josh needs to sit down with someone, have someone read him passages from the book where Andi tells a specific story of an instance with Josh, then Josh retorts with his side. I’m sure none of those stories will ever have him saying, “That never happened.” It would be more like, “Well yeah, but that’s her version. Here’s mine.” So it is possible that everything Andi wrote in the book are things that did happen with her and Josh, it’s just that Josh sees it differently than her. Just like Nick admitted. But to call the whole book fictional and full of lies is killing Josh’s credibility. Especially when he then follows it up with inspirational quotes and saying it’s in God’s hands. Josh is screwed because 1) he got involved with the wrong girl who ended up writing a book about him. Sucks, but it happened, and unless he’s going to refute everything she wrote in the book, Andi comes out smelling better in a lot of people’s eyes and 2) people are seeing exactly what Andi wrote in the book about him (jealous, controlling, short tempered) playing out on an edited TV show. I mean, each episode is 3 days of filming. We’re getting 80 minutes of a possible 72 hours of footage, and we STILL see Josh as controlling, jealous, and short tempered. But hey, it’s Amanda’s life now. Plenty of people see it, there’s a book out there explaining it, but it’s in her hands and she’ll handle it how she sees fit.
-Josh ends up talking to Amanda privately after, and says his intentions are pure because “I haven’t done anything for 6 months…my dog has had cancer….I wanna have a family…I wanna have kids…” Amanda is crying during Josh’s blow up because the twins aren’t the first people that have warned her. Evan warned her. Izzy warned her. Nick warned her. So here she is admitting that’s now four people who’ve warned her about him, but yet, it’s impossible to believe any of it is true? Why? Because he’s constantly kissing you and won’t let you up for air? Eventually Amanda comes around on Josh, “I trust you…I know that stuff isn’t true…” and all is good in Amanda/Josh land. And Amanda knows that stuff isn’t trrrruuuuuuuuue, how? Get back to me when you have an answer on that one.
-Now the last batch of people are entering the show. Jami Letain from Ben’s season shows up, for whatever reason everyone is sleeping and Wells is the only one there to greet her, she asks him out, he says yes, and Ashley is still stuck in REM sleep. She has no idea Wells is out with another girl, but once she gets up, everyone is fully expecting Operation Ashley Freak Out to commence. Surprisingly, it doesn’t. She says she’s fine with it while Wells is off jumping into waterfalls and making out with Jami. Maybe Ashley was a little more jealous last night watching? Hell if I know. But we couldn’t end the episode without one last confrontation and that’s Caila and Ashley having yet another talk about Ashley doubting her intentions with Jared. This causes Caila to say she wants to leave and Ashley basically packing her bags for her. Of course, Ashley took to Twitter last night and got mad at fans for her behavior saying there’s stuff we didn’t see, so it’ll be interesting to read her recap this week since she claims she’s gonna share stuff with us to prove her point. I’ll retweet it today if/when she posts it.
So tonight, I’m assuming we’ll see Caila leave and Jared follow her, and Shushanna enters the show and also goes out with Wells. That’s all we saw on the previews. Only Lauren Himle and Tiara Soleim are left to come on. Not sure if we’re getting them tonight or next Monday. I believe the finale is next Tuesday since Monday the 12th is the DWTS premiere. But I’ll double check the scheduling to see. Until tomorrow…
