Part 9 The Continuing Hollywood Saga of Disbelief and Non-Army Wives.......
I made a prediction when Season 2 began. Low and behold it has come to fruition! Imagine that...I was able to detect what the writers would "produce" verses the TRUE lives of Army wives.
Now in part 9 of season 2, the stories (and that is all it is) unfold as most SOAP OPERAS do.
Roxy's husband tries to heal to get back to his unit and finish his tour of duty like any typical soldier. Most soldiers are NOT content being home on medical leave for injuries when their unit is still deployed. However, they are turning Roxy's husband into a DRUG addict--yea, prescription drugs-pain killers. Naturally. I am sure PTSD is still on the menu for this soldier. I have a office pool going on this one. I am already smiling knowing it will come to pass.
Claudia Joy continues to be the Post commanders good wife, but there is that sneaky suspicion she is going to ultimately be involved in something tangled and it will be a messy undoing of some kind. The writers will NOT be able to leave her alone. Something from her past will creep into her life. No doubts.
All seems well in the household for our darling Radio DJ Pamela, and her SPEC OPS husband now that the air is clear with the "hoax" of him being a dual agent type in busting some soldiers in the unit for theft...yea uh huh. However, reporters are now doing personal Bio's on her, and it will soon drudge up her past as a COP...look out, ugliness is on its way. Say for instance the whole thing about her being a surrogate mother....and something about her career as a police officer. Office pool on this one too.
Denise. Well all I can say is CALLED IT! I won that pool. Cha Ching! Denise didn't give into infidelity, however, she did embrace the forbidden kiss of death with the doctor. She also has this inner battle between independence, and being controlled by her overbearing control freak of a husband Frank. Who by the way is on his way home, and will probably turn out to be an abuser. (second office pool running on this one)
He constantly talks about how things are out of control and he needs to put the hammer down and regain the control, and did we mention the word CONTROL again? Yea the writers love that word- C-O-N-T-R-O-L. Kudos to them. They can spell. So Frank being a higher ranking officer gets leave and is on his way home....to find his wife the NURSE giving comfort to the doctor who had a very bad accident after she broke off a final coffee date with him. Uhhh yea.
Frank will go off the deep end. He belittles his son, wont "allow" his wife Denise to have a motorcycle, and gave her grief about getting her nursing degree. Prediction: Denise will sell the motorcycle to "save" her marriage, get beaten up, Claudia Joy will come to her rescue, and so will Roland.
Roland and his wife-Joan, had an emergency with the pregnancy. Well something bad had to happen didn't it?? I mean we cant have a picture perfect pregnancy now can we. No...that would be too LIFE like. The baby may be fine, or born premature. Either way some turmoil will happen. The writers wont leave well enough alone. But I can tell you this....I BET--the officer who wants to replace Roland's wife-Joan, is the HEAD of the drug ring on Base.
Then the final one is Roxy. She is still obsessed with her Hump Bar aka Betty's. She is getting her GED now, and she has financial woe's with running the place. During her trials and tribulations with being a business owner, she has a lot of Permits and inspections to pass and so forth. Eventually two things will happen. Betty's will pass away and the Bar will be her's 100%. Perhaps Betty will have a small stash of funds left to Roxy, but it won't be much.
Next her husband will redeploy and in his drug induced stuper mindset, he will be a KIA. Roxy will end up with the SGLI, which is close to $450,000.00 that will come as a shocking surprise to her in the midst of grief because lets face it, she never pays attention to "military stuff" as she calls it.
But....she will become the "new Betty" who stays right outside of post raising her kids and owning the Bar...forever serving soldiers...it will probably be the episode FINALE or something.
OH! The FINAL KICK IN THE TEETH! If Infidelity is NOT enough for your taste buds, lets add ONE MORE FALSEHOOD to the LONG LIST OF LIES and DEPICTIONS that HOLLYWOOD IDIOTS want to SLING at the common public civilian. ARMY WIVES are weak and often turn to lesbian lovers in time of loneliness and need! Yea, Season 2 part 10..begins THIS little drama laced bunch of CRAP! So the writers think that Army wives have NO backbone, NO morals, NO ethics, and NO ability to ENDURE long periods of faithfulness and do not take PRIDE nor HONOR their soldiers/husbands and absolutely HAVE to have a lover of some sort.....so they will go towards LESBIANS because somehow this will not be as "horrible" as having an affair with a male???
One thing Hollywood and the writers of this program CAN NOT and DO NOT understand is that we learn to ADAPT to the long periods of time apart from our spouses. We have CHILDREN, CAREERS, FAMILY, and FRIENDS that take up 100% of our time and it leaves VERY LITTLE for anything else. When we have the opportunity to email, write letters, send care packages, love letters, or get online with our soldier we TAKE that time or MAKE that time above ALL ELSE.
Yet Hollywood and the writers are so eager to SHOVE HOMOSEXUALITY down the throats of people of this Nation that it is showing up more and more in Television, Music, Movies, and I have even seen it on clothing. I SAY ENOUGH! I will not sit idle by and be a silent minority! IT IS NOT OK! IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE, and IT IS NOT MAINSTREAM!
It is also NOT PART OF MILITARY LIFE! So do not think for a moment that it will be an accepted "lifestyle" in the MILITARY! WRONG! It puts peoples lives at risk and danger, PERIOD.
Still...I watch this only to report the MISCONCEPTIONS of this over dramatised EVENING LIFETIME SOAP OPERA for what it is. It in NO WAY depicts the lives of TRUE ARMY wives.
