The Marriage Ref Review for March 4, 2010

The Marriage Ref aired again yesterday on NBC. The “refs” were  Tina Fey, Jerry Seinfeld and Eva Longoria Parker

Here’s my review:

Comments on – Joe & Paula: Does Joe spend too much time taking care of himself – having manicures, pedicures, etc?

Well, it didn’t take long for me to totally disagree with the Marriage Ref’s call – I am going with Paula.  Paula married a cop who has turned into a bodily obsessed pampering machine.  Joe is obsessing over cleanliness and pampering spa-like activities for his own personal hygiene on a daily basis. This pampering takes on an obsessive-compulsive nature.  How do I know this? Because it is monopolizing his time and interfering with his life – taking away time from his family. Joe you are definitely NOT a manly man! Maybe you were when you were a cop – but you certainly aren’t now.  That’s Dr. Patty Ann – The Relationship Expert’s call!

Comments on Luis & Dalia: Should Luis be allowed to use the formal dining room table for card games?

Okay, I have to have full disclosure here.  My husband and sons wanted to change my formal living room into a game room by throwing out the formal furniture and replacing it with a pool table and various other “male” bonding items.  My answer to this inquiry – which turned into pleading: No! The formal living room remains formal.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I agree with The Marriage Ref’s call – No card games are to be held in the formal dining room.

The best line of the show goes to Natalie Morales: “Women possess better assembly skills than men”
The worse line of the show goes to Luis: “Anytime I talk, you should shut your mouth because I am a man”!
