As promised: Richard Heene did not disappoint!
The real surprise to me was Mayumi. While I don’t know her as well as I do Richard, I was shocked and amazed by her gutsy, heartfelt outbursts and approach to her new husband and family.
By the end of the show, both wives came across as heroes and both husbands looked like buffoons.
No surprise there – either on Wife Swap specifically or in American mass media generally. From the original “Honey, the Ajax turned blue!” to the most recent spots from Lowe’s, dad is always a dufus.
I’m going to see if I can get Richard and Mayumi to do an interview with me to post here. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, post your comments on the show, the Heene’s and the sad state of Dad’s rep in America. Let’s hear it Pops!
