My Antonio: Recap for September 6th

Emotions ran high and tempers flared on the latest episode of My Antonio. As this show progresses it becomes increasingly apparent that the more "real" dates the women have with Antonio the more emotionally attached they become. And on Sunday's episode this translated to spying and emotional outbursts, as feelings of jealousy become more difficult to hide.

At the beginning of this episode it seemed as though everyone was having a good time. Antonio was hanging out with the women at their suite, where everyone was laughing and seemed to be enjoying themselves. Then the cameras showed a close-up of Tully sitting on the floor kissing Antonio's hand. This did not sit well with Jennifer, as these kisses were not just quick pecks. She later asked to speak to Antonio alone, where she revealed just how jealous she really was.

The next day brought the next challenge for the women to try to earn some real alone time with Antonio. Hula instructors were brought in and the women were asked to express themselves through a hula dance that would later be performed in front of Antonio. Jennifer became emotional as she created her dance, providing viewers with the first glimpse of her vulnerability since the show began.

Once everyone had coordinated their hula routines, Antonio was brought out to watch each one alongside the instructors, who were there to help him interpret the dances. After everyone performed, Antonio picked two women to go on a date with him, Brooke and Jessica. Brooke's date came first and began immediately after the hula challenge ended, where she and Antonio caught a helicopter that was waiting nearby. After they were in the air a while, the pilot informed them that in order to get to their destination spot they were going to have to jump out of the helicopter into the ocean. Once they overcame that hurdle they shared a romantic picnic on the beach, where Brooke received her long awaited kiss from Antonio.

Later on, back at the women's suite, Antonio decided it was time for a heartfelt talk with Tully. While they were talking, Christi and Jennifer were trying to eavesdrop. Antonio didn't seem to notice this, but he did notice that one of the women was out on the balcony smoking. And after his conversation with Tully he asked the women to tell him whether or not they smoked because this was something he could not tolerate. Then Jennifer, who was one of the women that confessed to smoking, asked to speak to Antonio in private again. From this conversation it was clear that she had become jealous of Brooke, as she informed Antonio that she wanted a date that included a waterfall, moreover something new and different.

The next day it was time for Jessica's date with Antonio, where they spent a fun-filled day of swimming with the dolphins and she received her kiss from Antonio. Meanwhile, Christi was poolside, chatting with Antonio's mother about getting rid of Tully. His mother encouraged her to dig for information about Tully, presumably as a way to diminish her character in Antonio's eyes. Maybe I am wrong but it seems to me like Christi may be falling into some sort of trap. I am surprised it never occurred to her that perhaps Antonio's mom chose her to dig up damaging information on Tully as a way of getting rid of her too. Obviously when Antonio finds out that Christi has been scheming to get rid of Tully behind his back, he is not going to want her to stay because he will not be able to trust her. I just do not foresee this turning out well for her.

Later on, as the elimination dinner began, Antonio started asking a few of the women some questions. When he began talking with Jennifer, their conversation became very tense, and quickly escalated into an argument. It became particularly heated when Antonio mentioned that she needed to quit smoking. However, all of this came to a halt when Jennifer injected profanity into the argument. Antonio made it clear that this was something he would not tolerate, especially in front of his mother, prompting Jennifer to leave the show of her own volition. Antonio then left the women sitting at the table, as he removed his mother from the situation. This was arguably Antonio's first real act of chivalry on the show. It is just ironic that it had more to do with his mother than "potential soul mate," still it should be commended.

After Antonio and his mother left, Christi became visibly upset, noting that Antonio left them all there alone when they were not the ones to upset him. Several of the women tried to calm her down, acknowledging that perhaps she had had too much to drink. This is where the episode ended, leaving the actual eliminations for another week.

This episode of My Antonio was, in my opinion, the first one where the women were not asked to demean themselves in order to gain Antonio's undivided attention. However, many of the women seemed more than willing to do this all on their own. And ultimately this will only make being eliminated more difficult for them to handle.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.
