In the Say Yes to the Dress episode “I’m The Evil Mom Here,” all eyes are on bride Samantha who has already shopped at 100 different bridal stores, clearly without finding the right dress. According to TLC, “her bullying mom is not helping.”
At her Kleinfeld appointment, when Samantha finally finds a dress that she loves – it’s a strapless gown with a corset bodice and big tulle skirt and train – her mother says, “I don’t like it. It’s ugly.” When the mother is reminded that it’s the dress she liked on the mannequin, she says, “Yeah, not on Samantha. On her, it’s ugly,” she laughs. “I don’t like it.”
At one point during Samantha’s appointment, veteran bride consultant Randy Fenoli excuses himself and says, “I have to step away.” When he leaves the room, he’s heard saying, “I’ve never seen anything like this. I don’t want to be a part of this anymore.”
Say Yes to the Dress airs Saturdays at 9 pm on TLC.
