Untying the Knot Episode 2 Minicap: Passport for Divorce


Hello Trashmongers! Hope as is well in your love life, be it with your cat or an actual human. Last week was the unveiling of Untying the Knot, a show about divorcing, insanely rich couples fighting over useless crap. I am loving the fact that someone is FINALLY doing a show SOLELY about divorce, a topic that does NOT get enough TV time. No specials or ANYTHING.

The show is about couples who are ready to divorce but have to agree on who gets what before they do it to avoid going to court so they need a mediator. You know, the usual. Except these reality TV couples have oodles of money like our star Vikki’s usual clients, instead of a few pennies like the rest of us. These shallow, sour couples have Vikki Ziegler, top attorney and mediator for divorcing couples. She will help them come to an agreement on who gets what overpriced crap with her expert mediating skills. The fun thing is usually the couple is VERY arrogant about having money and expensive items to fight over. Even better is when they find out they got scammed out of bucket loads for a piece of crap.


You may have bought these at Party City, but to some they are worth millions

There are also a couple of cute brothers who are supposedly experts in appraising enormously expensive items who Vikki loves to flirt with.

We get the overview on how they met, fell in love, hit a place where she was putting Nair in his shampoo and he started banging the neighbor’s goat. Now both of them want every damn thing down to the last can of Who Hash.

Last week, we had a plastic power couple complete with a gorgeous and surprisingly smart wife. Plus a stupid husband who secretly wanted to stay married and keep all of their money under his pillow. Except he kept calling everything “HIS”. Soon he found that most of that “HIS” stuff was legally “THEIRS” and we watched with glee as he was forced to compromise.

They spent most of the half hour fighting over a Buddha head that they thought was worth thousands but nope, it was appraised at $800. HA! She left, smug and satisfied and ready to remarry another rich buffoon. He stomped off bitterly and swore never to marry again.

This week we have a less attractive couple, Jennifer and Golan. Golan is an unfortunate looking old man who wants everything. He doesn’t know why or what it is, he just DOES. Both had great businesses until he moronically destroyed his. She still has hers. He wants to sit by the pool and be as active as a plant. Plus they have tons of gorgeous things to fight over.


Meet one of the sexy set of two who will tell you your valuables are trash

The items left over that they must agree on before the divorce on are:

17 carat diamond necklace bought by Golan as a gift to Jennifer

An Anwar Sadat passport Bill Mack full frontal painting of a naked lady

Overpriced Florida properties

His tactic to get everything is to say he will not let her divorce him unless he gets everything. Vikki is not impressed. Jennifer is worn out.

It looks like there is a shady past Golan has that I would love to hear about, judging from this conversation. Tune in to see if it will be revealed on the full recap. Missed last week’s episode? You can catch up by clicking here
