Tanisha on TGM 101: I envisioned my wedding to be something out of a fairytale.
I was having Christmas dinner with my family when Clive walked over, got down on one knee and proposed to me. I just grabbed the box and slapped the ring on my finger! When I first started planning my wedding I envisioned it to be like something out of a fairytale. I wanted the horse and carriage and I wanted to get married in a castle. I also wanted a cake as tall as I am! I was most looking forward to planning the food for the wedding. It’s a huge celebration with lots and lots of good tasty treats. It’s awesome.
Clive only saved $5000 five weeks before the wedding and that’s not even enough to buy a dress. I was pissed! I couldn’t believe that was all Clive saved. What was he thinking? I was livid. It didn’t help when he told me I needed to go on a diet. I was very surprised. I was like, You never said anything in the past so why the hell are you saying this now? And on top of that, you’re always bringing me snacks!
I was also hurt that his family declined to be a part of the wedding. I wasn’t surprised because I knew there was some tension there, but I wanted Clive to stand up for me. I have a dominant personality but sometimes it would be nice if Clive would take the lead.
I feel like I have to take care of Clive too much. He even calls me mommy sometimes. He has a hard time hearing and that makes it difficult to communicate with him, and that affects our relationship. I’ve been patient up to this point and I deal with it because I love and adore him.
I don’t deal with the drama between Clive and Arkeen. They are both extremely possessive over me and I can’t win. I gave up a long time ago. As for Flo and Natalie, I definitely knew that there would be drama when I tried to put them together. But I’m hoping for the sake of the happy day that they can put their differences aside.
