Paradise has come to an end, and Lee and Andrea recap the finale before announcing a hiatus of their own. First, however, they come to terms with the devastating news that Peter will not be the next bachelor and talk about the scandalous choice that's rocking Bachelor nation. Then they say farewell to the Paradise castaways and discuss the surprise proposal that somehow managed to warm their hearts. Stay tuned to @MarriedTVpod on Twitter and @MarriedWithTelevision on Facebook for the latest updates on when you can expect the next installment of the Married With Television podcast.
This week it's a house divided on Married With Television as Lee and Andrea square off with vastly different opinions on everything from Andrea's new found appreciation for Jack Stone to Lee's unexpectedly positive perception of the twins. But the one thing that everyone agrees on is how much Dean sucks. Paradise is rapidly coming to a close, so grab your scallops and pour yourself a Pedialyte as the sun begins to set on our favorite castaways.
Lee and Andrea pause to reflect on the devastation in Texas caused by Hurricane Harvey as well as the encouraging relief and rescue efforts. Then they move into recapping this week's Bachelor in Paradise which started out with everyone's favorite party game: What Dat Mouf Do Tho? Tickle Monster wasn't the only one feeling crabby as tensions flared between Taylor and Derek, while Dean continued to disappoint. Finally, the new arrivals of Christen and Daniel shake things up, and none of us will ever be able to look at scallops the same way again.
Mercury is in retrograde, and Lee and Andrea are feeling its effects. They discuss their own personal solar eclipse stories, and Lee reveals the gas station snack food he turns to for comfort in these trying times. On the Paradise front, they ponder the appeal of Raven and Adam, drag Dean for the #wayharshTai treatment of Kristina, ride the rollercoaster of Lacey’s emotions, and discuss the one scene from Paradise this week that deserves an Emmy.
Lee and Andrea set sail on covering the new season of Bachelor In Paradise and discuss the unforgettable opening credits, Robbie's new face, sweaty Iggy's pending demise, celebrity dating apps, and everything else one could possibly hope for in a recap about a bunch of drunk reality stars kissing and crying their way through their extended 15 minutes of fame.
Lee and Andrea are blown away by this weeks Bachelorette finale, and not in a good way. Andrea seeks solace from the one and only Oprah and Lee is looking ahead to Paradise, but first they take a look at how everything went wrong for Rachel and Peter. They also may have stumbled onto a sequel idea for Rachel and Bryan called "It Is What It Is" featuring everyone's least favorite couple at Thanksgiving dinner as Bryan meets Rachel's Federal Judge dad and has to contend with Constance. Grab your ponchos, batten down the hatches, and prepare yourself - the end is near.
Lee and Andrea are back with a brief recap of this week's Bachelorette: The Men Tell All episode. They quickly discover they're more excited by the amazing studio audience reaction shots than by anything the men have to say. Dean appears to be an audience favorite, but questionable wardrobe choices and a sticky situation with gum leave Lee and Andrea in doubt. They look ahead to next week's finale and are preparing themselves for the worst (i.e.- Bryan), but gearing up for what looks to be an exciting season of Bachelor in Paradise.
Lee and Andrea briefly recap their weekend which shockingly included staying out past 10:00pm. Next they talk about the joys and sorrows of movie theater etiquette in LA before jumping into this week's episode of The Bachelorette which saw Rachel's family meet the final three guys. There's a lot to cover including Peter's strong start and rough finish, and Eric's infatuation with his hot tub moment. However, Lee and Andrea are most excited about Mama Lindsay, Constance, and the rest of Rachel's family's less than stellar reaction to Bryan. Awkward family dynamics, the correct pronounciation of the word "vulnerable," and a vineyard run by Chef Boyardee await!
Filmmaker and host of the My First Feature podcast, Ethan Cushing, joins Lee and Andrea this week. After some Southern Charm news and a recap of Andrea's birthday weekend spent with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw (in concert, not as besties) they dive into this week's episode of The Bachelorette. Everyone has a lot to say on everything from Bryan's weird relationship with his mom to Dean's showdown with his dad. Lee is very concerned about who the emerging front runner is and they all speculate on who may win and who might be the next Bachelor. Join the gang and prepare to have your chakra aligned!

Lee and Andrea are back from visiting Charleston and have a MAJOR secret to share about where they stayed in the Holy City (hint: it was the house of one of their favorite Southern Charmers)! They also detail their near run-in with trouble outside of Patricia's house before recapping the Southern Charm season finale/reunion. They close things out by discussing this week's episode of The Bachelorette which saw two guys go home that they barely got to know, plus predictions are made about who the next Bachelor might be.
