Must See TV tonight: Who the (Bleep) did I marry? on ID


I've developed a minor (major) addiction to ID television. The kind folks over at Investigation Discovery let me sneak peek the Season 2 premiere of Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry? My first thought after watching it with my mouth open the entire time was "there by for the grace of God go I." Here's the description:
Tammi McCreary had never been lucky in love. So when she met handsome, romantic Eric Perteet at an Atlanta nightclub, she thought that this time, fate was on her side. Is there something wrong with her "Mr. Right"?


Yes, there's something very wrong with her Mr. Right. Watch the show tonight at 9:00pm central/10:00pm eastern and then come back through and discuss. What could Tammi have done to avoid this drama? Anything?

Oh man I gotta find out the end of that one.  What is iD channel?  ATL folks, what station is this?

rozb said...

I will be DVR'ing this episode. I love Discovery ID!

Jeannette said...

That's my favorite show on Discover ID... Matter of fact, i find myself watching Discover ID a lot more, especially on the weekend when they have marathons.  Also "The Devil You Know" is a great show on Discover ID as well.

Ooh I'm glad you posted this.  I saw the commercial for this (anything on ID, CI, or A&E I'm addicted to) and wanted to watch. *heads over to website to set dvr*

Thanks for this info! I'm getting rid of Netflix and will be adding back to my cable package in its place :-) This show looks fascinating but as a single woman I wonder what a show like this will do to my vetting process.

I don't want to spoil it for anyone but the preview has me giving this girl a serious side eye. A regular service costs 1/3 of what she was quoted. Broke folks need to learn to accept cremation and get out of my pocket. I'll watch to see if its out of context but I can't feel sorry for people who don't use common sense.

Whew, my grandma loves ID and any other shows/ channels like that lol

GammasWorld said...

Okay I'm on it - already raising my eyebrows at a $30k funeral tho - just sayin.  I like ID as well.  Can't remember the exact name but they had a show about stalkers that was pretty intense -- some of them just wouldn't give up and women had to move and mess like that -- some, unfortunately were killed :(

This.Right.Here.

maureen palmer said...

This. right. here. scared  me to single for ever space. I love ID too,  I learnt about it on A&E. Not judging,  I hope she did  not miss neon signs; $30,000 for a funeral?

SingLikeSassy said...

OK. I can't see the whole episode tonight, but I have some thoughts based on this snippet.

1. A $30K e-ring? What did this guy do?
2. She didn't give him the side-eye when he came up with that same exact number for the funeral? She didn't think that was an astronomical amount for a funeral that wasn't even planned yet? I mean didn't he *just* get the call that the stepdaughter had committed suicide? How do we know what the funeral will cost already?
3. She let this man move in with her and her children?

rozb said...

$30,000 for a funeral? Is the funeral for a dignitary or celebrity? For a mere fraction, she could get cremated and put up somewhere, and for even less than that, roll the body up in a tarp and dump it somewhere. But that amount of money - you will not get it from me for ish! Sounds like she moved in her own personal scam!

rozb said...

I like Wicked Attraction and Deadly Women. 

Mina B. said...

I can't watch it either but um yeah...as soon as I heard 30K for a ring I was like o___O

- If you are going to spend 30K on a ring you don't need "a day or two". You got it or your don't.
- This ninja was going to stay w/her to save money yet the day before he was going to drop 30K on some jewelry?
- Why would SHE be okay w/him even showing her a 30K ring if he isn't already balling till he is freeking falling?????

Leo the Yardie Chick said...

Man, I wish I had this channel.

bashowell said...

Oh yeah "The Devil You Know" is good, too.  Love that. 

Singlelif said...

I'm sorry...if the ex  doesnt have $30K for a funeral I have at least one question and one suggestion -  1.  Why is she calling you and not the childs father/other family members ?, and #2.  Sounds like a cheaper funeral is in order. As an aside, if my new man is paying for it..guess who will be attending ?   Exes are exes for a reason.

I'm a firm believer in folks with no $ contacting crematoriums at times of bereavement.  Humph !

Evansaw said...

"30,000.00 for a funeral?'   I hope she did not give that loser her money...but of course, she did, she would not be on this show otherwise.

Evansaw said...

Me too....

JoycelynC said...

It's 221 if you have Comcast.  Not sure about the satellite or other channels.  I would hit the web look for the channel, it usually has a way to look up the channel in your town. 

GammasWorld said...

Girl you're like me ... between this show and Stalked I'm content with just me and Doggie Princess LOL

C Nelson said...

Who on earth wants a $30K ring? I'm nervous enough about the $10K one that wasn't my idea and that doesn't look like an engagement ring because the center stone isn't a diamond. And the same amount for a funeral... hmm. Somebody was gullible. Really gullible.

JojoRaze said...

Girl...you are not the only one. I, and most of my family, are ID fanatics.  I love "Who the bleep did I marry," "Solved", "I (Almost) Got Away With It" etcetera, etcetera.  But I am kinda giving ID the side-eye with "The Devil You Know."  I thought it was a renaming of "Who the Bleep". 

OneChele said...

Now that some of us have seen it - what did we think?

William Martin said...

 That was crazy. You have to write a follow-up post listing the 9 things Tammi did wrong

blackprofessor said...

I actually caught this episode and Tammi wasn't paying attention - there were too many red flags with this guy!! 

The first major flag was his flossing in the club - who does that and who finds that impressive?  I am a firm believe that if you have to show off money, you don't really have it.  Also, the occupation story was laughable! One doesn't go from being a has been doctor to an engineer without some extra schooling, I can't believe she fell for that.  I won't get into the other egregious things like the $30K for the alleged ring and funeral, but needing to move in with her. Maybe I am too suspicious, but most of what he said didn't sound plausible to me.     

mutemia said...

 That was some serious foolishness. Although as a side note., Tammi looks damn good for her age. I thought her son was her brother or something.
Back to the episode, I missed part of it, so the thing with engagement ring was the first red flag I saw. Secondly, the sexy text yeah she shouldn't have snooped. The husband flying at me in a rage saying I threatened his job becuase that was his supervisor would have been damn dealbreaker.
I will say the guy was very creepy, who lies about their children being dead. Also I didn't catch it but how was he making money,  if he was a fake doctor and all he did was hit on women? I thought it was going be something like he was selling prescription drugs or something.

Grace said...

 Hot mess. Tammi need Jesus and a better group of girlfriends.

Singlelif said...

Watching this right now.  I will start by saying the NYer in me would take issue with a strange man throwing money on my table in the club like I was a hooker... or as if I should be impressed (which she obviously was, since she then gave him her card).  A few more minutes into the show and I also take issue with Tammi being THIRSTY and marrying a man 4 months after meeting him - especially since she's a grown azz woman and had already travelled the marriage highway TWICE.  It's now 3:45 a.m., and I have to shower and get ready for work.  I'll continue this later..

Leo the Yardie Chick said...

I haven't even watched the show yet (you just wait until my new computer gets here!), and I'm eager for such a post. From what I'm reading here, she was very dazzled by his game. VERY dazzled.

MichelleG said...

Only 9? I don't see anything that was done correctly. She knew something was wrong yet at EVERY opportunity chose to believe the unlikely action to support her delusions.

OneChele said...

My list was at 12 things done wrong

I won't be watching any more episodes. I just can't with the dumb women. People need to stop being so enamored with extraneous BS and use the sense God gave a flea. Who knew men's tears was kryptonite to common sense? Who carries around death certificates? What housewife of an alleged baller has to drive and pick up her carless husband? In Atlanta where even the dumb crippled and blind have their own cars? Who doesn't question the $30K funeral for a 12 year old? What supervisor is sexting my new husband without my foot in her hind parts (& in his for even coming at me like that?). Who quits their job over a man they met and married in 30 days? If the rest of the series has women as dumb as Tami they deserved whatever they got.

Only the Tall said...

You are so right! A man who would throw money at me as if I were a stripper or a hooker would get the Darth Vadar death glare. Not only is that ridiculous but it shows me that he has no respect for money. I would've told him to collect his cash and to try another table. THE END. She was indeed "thirsty" because after it was determined he wasn't really interested in acquiring property, but her, she jumped at the chance. He had her from the moment she gave him her card. She knew what she was doing and he knew that she was impressed by the cash. So many things about him, the deceased kids and parents, his crying episodes (claude hammercy!), etc. She was clueless. This is unbelievable. Also, why did her son look as if he could have been his mother's boyfriend? 

Only the Tall said...

Really? Thirty thousand to bury someone?! You need more people and you need to look into cremation. 

Only the Tall said...

All kinds of wrong, but the biggest was when she let this man move in with her and her children. She only knew this guy 4 MONTHS and already she's moving him in to share a home with her children? I don't believe in people moving in together, but when there are kids involved, that's a definite no. What kind of man would want to move in and not be a husband to their mother? They were both wrong on that one even if the man was decent and on the up and up.

GammasWorld said...

There were about 15 red flags from the get go.  Tammi wasn't a teenager or an Amish woman suddenly let loose in the world with no experience with men at all -- where did all this foolishness come from?  Tammi must not have any people, any where, in her life that she cares about or that care about her -- NOBODY said girl slow your roll, you've been down this path before?  I don't know a bride yet that let her fiance send out wedding invitations that she had not seen -- you don't *know* that it says Dr. and Miss on your own dang invites?    Tammi must have been super wealthy as I don't know what all of this war for -- just to have another wife?    

Singlelif said...

Ok, I'm home from work now and after reading other responses, I'm thinking the other issues I wanted to write about have already been expressed rather eloquently by others. 

To wrap this up for me,  it's a good thing Tammi has now taken a break from dating...and hopefully she wont be taking a fourth walk down the marriage aisle.  It's obvious that her judgement is seriously flawed and she's stuck on stupid, or perhaps she's been hit with a stupid stick.  Or maybe she has a fear of  being alone.  Or maybe she's naieve as hell.  I cant tell.  Hell  I can't even believe she "played herself" by having her story told to the masses. Most importantly, I just need somebody, ANYBODY to tell her that she doesnt have to say "yes" everytime someone asks her a question.
