Hello and welcome back to an unforgettable episode of A Night With My Ex. This is going to be on the short side as I am rocking a rare summer head cold and have been Day/NYquiled up for the last week.
The episode will feature Rob & Shivonne but bit before we get into the recap I want to give a shout out to the real stars of this show…. The motion sensor cameras.
Seriously even they get close ups
Rob and Shivonne dated for three years during which he was a DJ and thought that being a player was part of the job.
He brought flowers, good man
He says that she is the one that got away. Although he doesn’t exactly come out and say he cheated, he does admit that he wasn’t as respectful as he could have been.
She doesn’t believe in love at first sight but when she met Rob she felt his charisma and fell in love really early on. These two truly did make a beautiful couple and you can tell the producers thought so too because they gave several flashback photos of them looking gorg and in love.
But he wasn’t into to commitment. She got into fitness and became a fitness model, a career that eventually took her to LA. When she gave him the ultimatum that if he told her to stay in New York she would, he told her to go to LA and she left. Even though he was probably a total dog, I really respect him for letting her go pursue her dream. Rob arrives first and says he has grown and matured. He also discloses a little box that he has to give her because he wants her back. They both say that the last time they saw each other was four months ago in NYC, she was in town for work and he was visiting family.
4:47 PM – Shivonne arrives and to say that Rob is excited is an understatement. He practically floats down the staircase to greet her, presents her with the flowers and gives her a hug. She admits in her talking head that she misses him. He tries to offer her a drink and she declines says that she’s been trying to be healthier. He says she is so LA now. She tells him about her career that she been doing a lot of print ads and he’s genuinely proud of her. She says he is looking smaller than the last time she saw him and he invites her to the gun show. He mentions that it’s been four months since they last saw each other and give each other that knowing look that it was a good time. Shivonne says that they snuck into his room at him mom’s house and did it in his childhood room then she apologizes to his mom
I hope they save a copy of this video for their baby. OH, because even though she hasn’t mentioned it yet, I can tell by the runny nose and the slight pooch in her green shirt interviews that she is in the family way.
Yes girl, I know. At first I thought she had a bad cold but then I remembered with baby number 2 I had like a permanent runny nose. I used to think my mom was a witch when she would accurately guess that women were pregnant but now I know the tell-tale signs.
They get into the past, she says looking back now she can’t help but wonder what was she thinking because he was too crazy. He blames the job and having to promote. He says he couldn’t even spell the word commitment.
Gross, I hate when people say this sort of shit. Not because commitment is the only way live but because its more honest to say I didn’t want to tie myself to you in case something better comes along. But Rob says that was a different time and that’s in the past. He wants to show her that he grown and made a mistake let her go. He brings up that he goes to church now and she is pleased.
She says she is hungry and he knows what she wants, pizza. He drops the bombshell that he’s no longer deejaying but will always be one in his heart and on his iPod shuffle. In the middle of eating her pizza she suggests ordering room service…. How he doesn’t know at this point is beyond me. Anyone who treats frozen pizza like an appetizer and isn’t as big as a house is eating for two.
7:49 PM – They settle in the living room with the box of questions that were placed there by the producers to bring up the most sensitive issues they had when they were together.
What do you like the most that I do in bed?
She tells him that every time feels like the first time.
Why did you think it was ok to be and asshole and cheat/flirt with other woman in front of me?
Rob wisely gets up and walks to the other couch. He says he didn’t think it was the wrong thing or the right thing he just didn’t think about it at all because he didn’t think they had a future together with her or anyone else. I honestly thought she was going to cry in this moment. She explains to him how much that hurt and that she has a heart. Then she drops the nugget that there were ALWAYS other girls. OOOOHHH really, that’s not good girl and then she does start to tear up.
Seeing that this is not going in the direction he wants it to he runs for his special gift in a Tiffany box that thankfully was not full of birdseed. He presents her with a hollow book telling her that he might have the closing chapter. She opens it up and sees the box.
Immediately she gets fluttery because she thinks it’s a proposal and he psyches her out and acts like he’s getting down on one knee but stands up and instead offers her the key to his heart on a necklace. He wants her to move back to New York and live with him, no long distance, to start a life together. It’s no ring on a string but it’ll do for now.
Although she is touched she doesn’t say yes or no but tells him she is strongly considering his offer. He is shocked that after all his philandering and bad choices she isn’t mentally packing her shit already. Then he pops the champagne and scares the shit out of both of them.
9:01 PM – Rob pours them each a glass and Shivonne who hasn’t disclosed to him yet that she is pregnant with his child, fake drinks and is saved by room service at the door.
She is freaking out how she is going to tell him as they sit down to eat together for the first time since 2012. Then we get a long close-up of Rob looking cross-eyed, chewing and eating…it’s like the facial equivalent of patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time.
Shivonne tells him if she moves, he may have things to consider too. He guesses she has a boyfriend, nope. She draws out this long explanation to him that what if she told him that when she was in New York and they had sex … what if she told him that these sorts of thing happen babies are made and she is pregnant.
So, what are you telling me
When daddies REALLY love mommies, they make babies and I am pregnant with your baby
He demands to see her belly, tells her she is sticking it out asks why she is drinking then. We get a gradient flashback to ten minutes ago of Shivonne drinking her champs like communion wine. Because seeing believing he has to put his hands on her before he believes her.
Baby Be There
She says that she is willing to come along on his journey, if he comes along with her on this one. Once he can breathe again he is super excited and starts kissing her belly, doing the modified robot and prancing about while yelling about his sperm soldiers still working.
Who wouldn’t want to have babies with this man, he robots when happy
As they settle into bed Shivonne says even when they were dating he wanted a baby so she isn’t surprised he’s excited. While she eats a yogurt cup he talks to her belly telling the baby that’s he’s the daddy. [I would totally make fun of this but Mr. Wiser a super Star Wars enthusiast told each kid every night in utero in his best Darth Vader voice, "Baby, I am your father.” He’s nerdy, but really cute.] Rob suggests that they name the baby New York. As every expectant mother before her does when she hates a name suggestion does, Shivonne says we’ll see. She tells us that she always said she would never move for no man and she really doesn’t want to leave LA.
As morning comes Shivonne is already thinking about breakfast and she knows that she has to give an answer to Rob’s question. He begs for an answer over eggs and she starts to give all her concerns, the cold, the subway, raising a kid in the city but he tells her that it doesn’t have to be permanent maybe just 5 years … if she can make it that long taking his crap. She of course and says yes, because she knows it’s the best choice for the baby.
It’s not a new chapter, it’s a whole new book
Now these two may have the sweetest where are they now. Miss Liberty made her debut right before their episode aired and they filmed their interview at the hospital. Best of luck to these crazy kids, shit isn’t easy but helps if you are truly in love.
And then there were three
