I know I’ve said it before, but I don’t think Kenya Moore can get any crazier than she was on the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
NO BARNEY DON’T SAY THAT
We didn’t learn anything new about The Mother on this week’s How I Met Your Mother… but even if there had been any new clues, we wouldn’t have been able to pay attention! Not with shirtless Joe Manganiello, Paddles the duckling, and Swarkles feels distracting us.
When asked about all these things, they five responded collectively with, “so what?” An attitude that seemed to express that they believed the public were the idiots. So what they drank before the show? So what they wore bikinis before the show? So what they knew each other before the show?
Well here’s the so what. The fact that they dressed in English clothing before this show make the many scenes about them buying English clothes completely inauthentic. The fact that Abe and Rebecca initially lied to the cameras about not knowing each other — and then eventually confessed that they actually did know each other as “friends” makes their entire courtship fake. Jeremiah taking driving lessons as if he’d only ever ridden in a horse and buggy undermines his big taxi driver plot of the season. That’s the so what.
Victoria totally could’ve been The Mother on How I Met Your Mother. She looks a ton like Ted‘s kids, not to mention that they had such a cute meeting story. In fact, because they keep running into each other over the course of six years, it would make sense that Future Ted wouldn’t tell the kids in season 1 “That’s how I met your mother,” because he didn’t know back then that Victoria was The One. It would’ve been a great twist for him to finally reveal that the person we’ve most been waiting to meet on this show is someone who was there all along.
From now on, our How I Met Your Mother recaps are called Countdown to The Mother. Because those are really the only stakes in season 8, right?
For 8x03 “Nannies,” we have to wonder… if Victoria is such a big deal to Ted, how come we hardly saw her in the episode?
