'Bridezillas': Alex’s church says no to 'bridesman' entry in dress, wedding turns into sobfest after dad's visit
To her surprise, Alex's bridesmaid, Amber, had call in a stripper and since Alex is not like any other bride, she hated it and ran away and hid inside her closet
WeTV’s ‘Bridezilla’ is back with a new episode. The last week's couple, Alex and Creg, picked up from where they left. The big celibacy issue was not sitting well with Creg. He said he was having a hard time waiting for a few more days till they are lawfully wedded as husband and wife to be able to consummate. We also saw the possibility of Alex’s dad not gracing them with his presence on the wedding day because he did not like Creg and felt his daughter was making a mistake.
Alex planned a small get-together at her mother Jathiya’ s place and Jenie did not show up. We remember from the previous episode that Jenie was asked to get her dress altered by the wedding or she would be sitting with the rest of the “audience”. Did Alex mean to say guests by using the term "audience"? To her surprise, Alex's bridesmaid Amber had call in a stripper, but since Alex is not like any other bride, she hated it and ran away and hid inside her closet. Then she ran out and drove away in her car, while Jathiya danced away with the stripper.
Alex’s dad didn't come to the rehearsal wedding and she was sure he wouldn't show up on her wedding day as well. Alex told Creg about the stipper episode and that it was not her fault. Creg told her she was punishing him for messaging his ex, and even if she hangs out with a stripper, it would not help him abstain from having sex. He storms out saying, “I am gonna do whatever I want to do tonight,” and Alex hit out at Amber for ruining everything. Host Loni Love implied Creg was a twisted man and we agree. But we also agree that it’s a match made in heaven.
Just three hours before the wedding Alex got a call from the church managers where her wedding was supposed to happen. Homophobia was in the air when they told her they wouldn’t allow her “bridesman” Terril to come in a dress or wearing anything feminine. In fact they told her he couldn't come as a "bridesman” at all because that’s not traditional. Finally, they agreed to let the bridesmaids and groomsmen stand next to each other, but Terril would still have to wear masculine clothes. Terril is Alex’s best friend and the only person who seemed to be getting her. He agreed to the proposition saying the wedding was not about him so it didn’t matter.
Alex’s dad, Gerald, showed up at the wedding and quickly got emotional. He thought Alex was making a mistake by marrying Creg but gave his blessings anyway. The wedding ended up being a sobfest with the bride, groom and father of the bride crying uncontrollably. The wedding was over and the couple could finally break their celibacy oath.
'Bridezillas' airs on Thursdays at 10 pm ET on WeTV.
