I'm sorry for Marlo's past, but lots of people have had rough childhoods. It's 30 or 40 years later now. What is this context for? How she treats people? I really couldn't believe this second installment was still them talking about her childhood. If that seems harsh, sorry not sorry. I watch a lot of true crime and I'm truly appalled at the kind of parents and upbringing some people have had. There's a story on Netflix about a young woman who got pregnant by her father and gave up a scholarship to (MIT?) to live with him basically as his wife. I'm sure this woman managed to have more class than Marlo, despite living a shorter life and never getting out of that situation. Of course I enjoy drama, but a lot of cast has managed it without saying some of the things she continues to say then still says "dont worry, you may hate but I still love you". I mean what? You want an award?
As I said somewhere else, Kenya was terrible in the past, but at least Kenya didn't still pretend to be friends with the people she was vicious to, she didnt expect tonsay those things and be rewarded with friendship. She said that quite clearly, that she doesn't like them and never would.
Now, on to what I really wanted to talk about. Oh yes, Drew, the one everyone keeps seeing as some kind of victim of Sanya's. The most annoying part of her little routine is where she is always smiling that dumbass "what are we even talking about" smile, while she explains how she doesn't know what anyone is talking about, or denies something she doesn't even understand (Ralph doesn't gaslight her but she doesnt know what it means, Ralph "played" football), or denies saying what was clearly said.
Oh but it gets worse, because even though he's clearly messy af, she keeps this Anthony (clown...sorry, assistant), around even though it is demonstrated that he clearly is carrying lies back and forth. And "acts" surprised when he backpedaled on more than one lie, when confronted. She ALREADY knew he was lying. But she prefers to use the lie for her own gain, as if recording him lying about what he said proves something. She surrounds herself with liars. She clearly likes to live in delusion. She prefers to live with falsehoods and confusion as long as it benefits her somehow.
As I said, she gets worse every season. From her "business" to well.. everything else, lol let's not forget the whole ridiculous pastor thing (and I actually tried to defend her then, because I grew up in church). I dont know how people like this girl anymore. As far as I'm concerned Sanya was a quick study, and calculated what was up with Drew and the fact that whatever image she puts forward, she hadn't really earned that level of professional respect. And someone who is serious will spot someone who is a bit of joke, very quickly. So she stopped giving her respect. She's just a silly person.
When I saw Nene boohoo crying about her mom I started crying too. As someone who rather joke about everything and look strong instead of expressing themselves or addressing things that have hurt me in the past I can relate to Nene in that way. I think it taught me to be more open and to not hold on to things as much. Nene was really annoying sometimes and wanted to be on top most of the time but I do think she is someone who has had to make the best of her situation her whole life.
