Anyone catch how Lindsay makes everything about her? Kyle talking about moving in with Amanda>Lindsay makes it about her and Everett troubles when they moved in. Danielle upset Jordan is talking behind her back>Lindsay upset he put down her relationship with Everett. Carl confiding in Lindsay about where he is at in life>Lindsay sad that she thought she would be married to Everett. I cannot hear about this imaginary fairy tale relationship with Everett anymore.
It's annoying, but I don't think it's all that unusual for people on a reality show. After all, each of them decided their lives are interesting enough that people would want to watch them. Being self-involved is a key qualification for the job! When the Wirkus twins were in the house, Lindsay was easily forgotten as a cast member. I think this year she's using Everett to ensure she has a storyline. At least she's not joining the crown in hooking up with Jordan!
I think Paige is having fun and being smart. She knows Carl’s history and she’s not going to be played. But I think she does like him and if he treats her well she may be willing to see what happens. But she’s going to make him earn it.
It's certainly not the same show it was before, but I have to admit I kind of like it. I like that people seem to be on more even footing. YOu've got the core Carl/Lindsay/Kyle that have known each other a long time and have a bond, but then with the new girls and Kyle's fiancee, there's a bond forming that I enjoy. I like that they are showing more of the things that bond the original three - such as Linday advising Kyle on how to take care of the birthday gift.
I forget, does Kyle have another job besides starting up businesses? He mentioned various businesses failing, but seemed to have a good amount of money in the bank. Edit: well I guess he gets paid pretty well for being on the show as well.
I wonder if Jordan regrets coming on the show to begin with. To me, he very much comes across as a guy who is not comfortable in the social circle he's aspired to, but will do anything he can to fit in. For whatever reason, he's clearly not a guy comfortable in the hook up culture, but instead of being confident in saying so, he tries to pretend he's like Carl and Kyle and many other guys in the Hamptons. For a while, he may have gotten away with pretending to be who he's not comfortable being. But it's hard to get away with it when you're in an environment that has the benefit of playbacks. I think it's kind of sad that he's not more comfortable just being who he is.
Jordan gets more weird by the second. Amanda's parents and Carl's Mom have it right about Kyle but Amanda is still young and needs to see this through till the bitter end. I love Carl's Mom. His Dad sucks for losing a good woman. I enjoyed watching Hannah open up and getting to know her better. Carl telling Paige he is taking another girl to a wedding. This boy take 5 steps forward and 10 steps back. They have bad communication. She wanted him to ask her out during the week, he didn't, so then she flirts with other boys in front of him on purpose, his ego is hurt and makes her the bad guy so he takes another girl to a wedding. They either need to be 100% honest with one another or just chalk the summer up to flirty kissing friends.
Carl and Paige are a classic case of two people who really like each other but are scared the other one doesn't, and they don't want to feel foolish being turned down. Too bad, because if they'd just both be honest with each other, I think they could be a good couple. Paige knows what Amanda does not, which is that she deserves to be treated as an equal in a relationship. Amanda is making the mistake many 20 something girls have made and will continue to make. She's excited by the life he can offer her because he's older and has more money than guys her age. But he does not see her as an equal, and as a result he continues to treat her as less than she deserves to be treated. She's making a huge mistake moving into an apartment that he's essentially paying for - he'll hold that over her head now and keep too much control of the relationship. It's just not worth it to sell out equality in a relationship for material goods ... but lots of girls fall into that trap.
He is so uncomfortable to watch! "Am I your soul mate?" OMG! And she responded that she was on the 'date' to be friends and if he needed any help at work she'd help him. Lol. I wonder if she thought he was gay too?
Carl is so entitled. No effort and he still thinks he has the right to sleep with Paige. Guh!
