    I like the psychology of these shows; and this one is more "real" than the housewife shows.

    * Tarz and Tina Glad to know that they did have a healthy little boy. And the Tina's dad's new wife appears very nice. Perhaps they are just what each other needs.

    * Greek and Italian couple--so cute.

    * Gay couple--I really like the psychology of it. I liked that Blair did understand that the Brunette just wanted to be loved....and apparently the demanding sex all the time was not making him feel loved.

    * Alaska and the model--The separation could not be that fun. Marriage can be healing. But you saw that even with them being married, she was a little hurt by the "dating forever" words. He thought that was romance forever, and she thought that was girlfriend forever. I hope that they do work out. They both appear to be warm likeable individuals.

    I was appalled by the Greek/Italian couple who had the baby and the the Father didn't want to 'babysit' his own son for more than an hour. You don't 'babysit' your own child, it's called bonding and being a parent. But I think this couple will make it because they do 'get' each other.
    I thought Kim and Alaska were very cute on their belated honeymoon. I was lMAO at Kim when they were swimming with the dolphins, she was so scared of them! I think they said on Andy's show that they both live in the same place now.
    I was uncomfortable watching the gay couple go thru sex therapy...but that's just me....that was too private to be shown on TV IMO. They seem happy now and good for them.
    The big melt down Tina had in the restraunt with her Dad was crazy! And what happened to the blonde? Now her Dad is married to an Indian woman who looks more his age, that was fast! I was so happy Tina and Tarz had a baby. Even though I thought Tina was a drama queen and a brat her husband doesn't seem to mind her behavior and they seem happy so good for them too.

    I looked for pictures of Tarz and Tina's baby and instead found a lot of videos with Tina and her dad doing comedic things. He is an accounting professor at Rutgers who likes to act. So I can see what has been said before in this thread probably is true. They probably tried to play up the disapproving father in law stereo type. And Tarz probably fed into that with his I do not like people telling me what to do. Tina played into the brat. And the dad hired an actress to be his rude younger blonde girlfriend with four kids wanting another one?...... That's fine. They are cute. Being Lucille Ball might take a lot of energy. I think I would prefer to see them just relax. I see not knowing how to diaper a baby and such antics on the way.

    All the couples were super adorable. Not without faults, but who is?

    I would watch spin-offs of all 4.

    They had a "Where Are They Now" special last night. I had forgotten how insufferable these people were! The misogynist husband/dad being proud of the fact that he has changed his son's diaper four times and had no clue how to entertain the baby on his own? Are you effing SERIOUS?!?! Although they all were so proud of how far they've come and grown, they all seemed pretty much the same, with the exception of Alaska and ___ in LA.

    I like this show better than the housewife shows. I liked seeing where they are

    * Tarz and Tina--They are sweet. I can see they love their family life. Little Tarzee is the perfect mix of both.

    * Greek and Italian couple--The first year I thought it was depressing that she wanted to stay home and complain about money. This year, I can see the love the new baby has brought into her life. They look happy. Some men are not really baby sitters. I remember my dad babysitting my younger sister only once.

    * Gay couple--Interesting. I thought the young one was a bratty spend thrift complaining that he wanted the other guy's house in his name. Anybody who insists they want your assets, big RED FLAG. I believe the young one's crying was just drama, not love. The older man should find someone his own age who is good with money.

    * Alaska and Model--If she's happy, I am happy. Alaska is a little weird; but if he improves her life...that's good.

    Glad to see where all of the people are now, and that they are happy. It would be nice to continue to see where are they now.

    The new group--nothing grabs me from the previews, but I imagine I will get caught up in the psycology of it all

    That "meltdown" between Tina and her dad at the yogurt place reeked of phony. Something has always seemed off about those two -- like they're making stuff up for the camera, including how the dad announced his engagement earlier in the season. Not only badly scripted, but badly acted.

    As for the new group, if I can get past the intense vocal fry (literally every woman on this show has affected that annoying croak -- universe, please make this trend stop) , this may be entertaining. The flirty one in the lesbian couple will need to grow up, though. Kissing you ex-girlfriend at your wedding???

    I enjoyed revisiting the original cast, and had to laugh at how much I had forgotten how crazy they all were! The new couples seem much more grounded, but we'll see. . .

    I do enjoy the show, though, and I'm glad it's returned for a season 2 with new couples.

    I am not sure why any of the new couples decided to get married, except Toi and Rauvan, who seem to have realistic expectations. Perhaps because they have both been married before, they seem pretty grounded.

    Sam and Laura seem stressed and thus stress me out. Sam is part of a really unhealthy family with no filters. She will inherit an estate and thus has a much more wealth than Laura. Sam and Laura decide it will be a good idea for Laura to manage the estate? I would hope that these two seek counseling while they work out their issues.
