Diana involvement this week was sparse but she did make an observation that summarized everything Liza this week- she was finally putting work ahead of boys for the first time. And coming from someone who is boy crazy, that means something.
Liza’s relationship with Pauline is intensifying and that bothers Charles, but not as much as the realization that advancing her career is more important to her than pursuing their relationship. And that’s a very secure-man realization. How could it not be? For his whole adult life, he’s put his career first – it was what provoked the demise of his marriage. Now that he’s successful and wealthy, he’s made room for love again but Liza, a woman he thinks is 28-years-old, cannot possibly be willing to be lesser than the man. Did he not learn anything from his failed marriage? Women want their own place, their own careers and Liza is trying to make a name for herself so her hunger to make Marriage Vacation a success is justifiable, even if it does hurt his ego. Now if he knew her real age, it would change things because he’d be able to understand why she’s formed such a bond with Pauline; she too was trapped in a marriage and unable to focus on her dreams and this is her second chance. Why would she give it up for another man yet again?
Then there’s a third layer to Liza’s thought process – she’s a sucker for a happy ending and seeing how much Pauline still loves Charles prompts her to want to give them a second chance. The fact that his ex-wife is romanticizing everything and telling Liza, which makes her believe things are better than they actually are. Charles may have mentioned something about her moving back in for the children’s sake, but that doesn’t warrant a “we’re getting back together” convo like Pauline made it seem.
So while Liza’s choice to kiss Jay was surprising, it shouldn’t have been. With the circle getting smaller and Liza wanting success for herself and Pauline both professionally and personally, her kiss is the next step into “safe” territory. She knows it will push Charles away and help her forget about the real feelings she has for him, which will make all of this easier. It sounds good in her head but she’s not actually realizing that she’s willingly pushing them back together, pushing Pauline back into Charles’ arms. It’s dangerous because there’s no going back from that.
Jay, while a pesky annoyance at every party, was a knight in shining armor, coming to her aid during a badly-timed run in with Caitlin’s best friend’s parents. Can you imagine if Charles or Pauline walked up right at that moment and found out she has a college-aged daughter!?! The New York elitist circle is getting smaller, but it’s comforting to know that she also has a small circle of trustworthy people that are willing to protect her secret because they know it’s not the time to get caught. It wouldn’t be good for Liza, her career, Pauline or Empirical. There’s a lot riding on this.
Josh came off as more immature than usual and for the first time, I’m seeing why my friends have been so adamant that they’re on #TeamCharles. Maybe Liza just brought out a mature side of him, that isn’t necessarily when she’s not around. I can’t say I’m deeply invested in his relationship with Claire just yet simply because I don’t trust her. Why was she messing with Kelsey’s things? I’m sure that Josh will decide to marry her so that she can stay in America but something, call it a weird vibe, tells me that that’s been her plan all along. She knew she wasn’t going to get the job so she made some guy fall madly in love with her so she could find a way to stay. And of course, Liza is going to get sucked into this mess. If there’s one person that’s the king of irrational decisions, it’s Josh. Sometimes it’s a good thing, sometime’s it isn’t.
Overall, I’m disappointed that I wait week after week for a 20-minute episode that’s at a standstill. This season has been the most unproductive and I think the most frustrating part will be the realization that we invested all this time into Liza’s many relationships and in the end, she’ll simply choose herself. And there’s nothing wrong with that don’t get me wrong – I think it’s bold, I just wish we could at least see a proper hook up with Charles before it all gets thrown away.
- Lauren did exactly what I would do if I got fired from my job, hung out at the super exclusive and member only club “The Nest.” They say you’re supposed to struggle in your 20s and this, this is definitely struggling.
- Her determination not to fail is admirable, however. I truly have a Lauren-sized breakdown once a day.
- Is it really that easy to network with segment producer of GMA? Have I just been doing it all wrong?
- Diana steals the show yet again with her kryptonite. Keep doing you girl!
Sexy and Steamy TV Shows to Watch During ‘The Bachelor’ Hiatus
With The Bachelor taking a hiatus (well, until their spinoff Listen to Your Heart premieres in April), you need to fill that reality TV dating void in your heart with some shows that are equally as hot and steamy.
While there are plenty of choices to make from the Bachelor franchise, if you’re looking to shake things up the same way Peter Weber did on his season, we suggest these shows!
Young scientist Lisa is strapped for cash and needs it to fund a life-changing project when Anne Montgomery (Oscar-winner Renée Zelwegger) approaches her with an offer she can’t refuse: one night alone with her husband. The only condition: she cannot ask what happened.
The telenovela lasted only one season before ABC canceled it, but it was a sizzlin’ drama focused on a forbidden love story and a who-dun-it murder mystery. Two of our favorite things.
Liza, a 40-year-old single-mom struggles to re-enter the working world. But when she meets a 26-year-old guy who believes she’s his age, it all becomes so clear as she fakes her age, gets a publishing job, and gets a second shot at her crazy 20s… that is until people start figuring out her secret that she’s trying desperately to protect.
The Bold Type
Fashion meets sex on The Bold Type. Three besties — Kat, Sutton, and Jane — are living their best lives in New York City and working for a fashion magazine, Scarlett. As they “push the envelope” in their career, they’re also doing it in their daily life as they find themselves, have plenty of sexual experiences, and learn how to be comfortable in their own bodies while feeling as lost as most millennials do.
Sisters Beth and Annie and best friend Ruby get fed up with playing by the rules and constantly losing, so they get a crazy idea to rob a grocery store. One illegal decision suddenly lands them in hot water and starts a dangerous life of crime and even a crime of passion with one sexy “gang friend.”
The series explores the emotional and psychological effects of two affairs. Newlyweds Alison and Cole are experiencing problems in their marriage and she finds solace in the arms of Noah, a teacher vacationing at his in-laws’ Hamptons estate with his family. What starts off as a summer affair quickly becomes much more complicated.
Described as the “adult Twilight” and the more intense version of The Vampire Diaries when it first came out, Sookie Stackhouse, an oddball at school who can read minds, falls for a 173-year-old vampire named Bill Compton. Bill and his vamp clique have joined the land of the living after a new synthetic blood allows vampires to survive without human blood. Sex, lust, and bloodlust all fuel this HBO series.
A private school in Spain becomes the scene of a murder brought on by a clash between the rich and the poor. The murder mystery begins as no one knows who’s responsible, and there’s a lot of sexual tension between the good looking students that leads the storyline.
Reality TV Shows
In the same vein as many other dating reality shows, Love Island brings together a cast of hot singles ready for love and romance that’s fueled on by warm weather on the island and a grand prize of £50,00o.
Married at First Sight
The title of the series is pretty self-explanatory, but in the case that it needs to be explained, a group of strangers looking for love get married to a complete stranger the first time they lay eyes on him/her. They’re paired up with the help of a spiritualist, a relationship coach, and a sociologist who use “scientific matchmaking methods.” The remainder of the season documents their honeymoon and life after marriage. Following several weeks, the couple gets the option of staying together or splitting up.
Are You The One?
The Netflix series is a new kind of dating experiment that finds strangers meeting via cubes and falling in love without ever seeing each other. The whole idea is to remove looks from the equation and find your soulmate based on connection alone. If finding someone you vibe with is successful in the pods, the couples get engaged, have a honeymoon in Mexico, and walk down the aisle a few weeks later. Who will say yes? And who will walk away?
Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!
Younger had some great moments and some less than great moments on Younger Season 6.
On a broad level, the storylines weren’t as fleshed out as they should have been, plenty of story arcs got condensed for the sake of time, the characters weren’t as empowered, and the love triangle got pushed so heavily, both Team Josh and Team Charles teams were over it by the finale episode.
But the magic that made Younger the fresh, inspiring, and addictive show is still there hidden under all of that.
We’re looking back at the best, worst and funniest moments of Season 6.
Most Frustrating Thing About the Season
The love triangle.
We all dug the Charles vs. Josh conundrum in the show’s early days, but we can all agree that Liza’s indecisiveness is tiring.
The best thing that can happen come Season 7 is for Liza to make a choice and stick to it.
There’s never a shortage of funny moments on Younger.
Ironically, two of the funniest moments involved vaginas: Maggie sticking garlic up hers to get rid of a yeast infection delivered plenty of laughs on Younger Season 6 Episode 4 as did Lauren getting her private parts stuck to an ice sculpture on Younger Season 6 Episode 12.
But my personal favorite was Liza’s micro-dosing experience.
On Younger Season 6 Episode 6, Liza hallucinated Charles and Josh morphing into one person — it would make things easier for her — and then ballroom danced with both men when in reality, she was dancing with a plant

Younger – Forever (6×12)
Usually, proposals call for a celebration. Usually.
On Younger Season 6 Episode 12, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Charles’ proposal couldn’t have come at a worse time, and it drastically underlined how differently he and Liza viewed their relationship.
His speech before the proposal was heartfelt and genuine; Charles has fallen madly in love with Liza and only has eyes for her.
But Liza’s eyes and heart have been wandering for several episodes now. She’s not as fully committed to this relationship as Charles is, and that’s a damn shame.
Viewers have been frustrated with the back and forth that’s been happening all season long.
There was hope that by the season finale, Liza would make up her mind and move on from this nonsense.
Pick Charles, pick Josh, pick no one, but be an adult and make a decision, Liza.
Kelsey said it best: they’re no longer looking back.
Even Charles’ proposal is pushing for her to make a decision and commit to it.
If Younger Season 6 was about Liza owning up to her lie and accepting her truth, then Younger Season 7 needs to be about Liza deciding to be the grown woman that she is.
Unless Liza is into polygamy, there’s no way she can have them both.
There has to be a sacrifice for any of this to be worth it.
Liza’s indecisiveness becomes even more frustrating when you consider that everything has been leading up until this very moment.
Liza and Charles had chemistry from day one, and despite her other relationships and obstacles, they kept being drawn to each other.
The set-up was perfect: their song was playing (though the magic wasn’t there anymore), they were in the moment at a wedding, and there was talk of their future and blending their families.
Yet, Liza keeps holding onto a memory of what once was for reasons unknown.
They all deserve better, but after that speech, oh, that speech, Charles deserves so much more.
Charles is a gentleman who is thinking of the bigger picture, and Liza is acting worse than a teenager.
