Are Morgan Stewart and Brendan Fitzpatrick of #RichKids of Beverly Hills fame on the rocks? After Season 2 Episode 6 of the E! series, you can't help but wonder.
Last night, Brendan proved that for all his redeeming qualities, his listening abilities need serious fine-tuning. There's misreading a situation, but this?
After Morgan and Brendan babysat for his niece, she got a little rattled in talking about the topic of motherhood with her own mother, Susan Stewart.
That's when Brendan absolutely botched his handling of the subject.
Scripted as they are (and what isn't on this show, as you know if you watch Rich Kids of Beverly Hills online, not that we care), Morgan's fears are legit.
Not only does the sheer amount of effort give her pause, and rightfully so, not wanting to bring up a child with emotional and psychological problems?
Pretty mature of her, if anything, to even contemplate these things.
Morgan's introspection, even trepidation, on the subject of parenthood just proves she'd be a good mom, and that she'd go into it with the right attitude.
Yes, these are the Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, of whom we make fun, but they are capable of real feelings, intelligent debate, and support from their partners.
Only Brendan didn't see it that way. Rather than praising her thoughtfulness and assuring her it will be alright if and when the time is right, he ... didn't.
The "I can't be with a woman who doesn't want children" ultimatum a knee-jerk reaction, we're guessing, but that doesn't make it any more palatable.
Come on, Brendan. You're better than that. We know you are.
