Queen Bey said it first, and it seems like it will never fade. If you like it, then you should’ve put a ring on it! And that is exactly what the ladies on the hit reality tv series ‘Put a Ring on It’ with Dr. Nicole LaBeach, are saying to their significant others. And on June 03, 2022, on OWN network it was decision time!
Now, we have endured a lot of relationship shows over the years. Dating shows, marriage shows, counseling shows, but this one is like ‘Married at First Sight’, but with a slightly different approach. Fellows, would you like seeing your lady on a date with another man if it will improve your relationship? Ladies, how about y’all?
The show follows three longtime couples, with help from master relationship coach Dr. Nicole LaBeach, who embark on the ultimate relationship test. From week to week the couples are pushed outside their comfort zones to confront the question they’ve been too afraid to ask: is this their happily ever after?
The couples will finally find out if they are truly meant to be together by dating other people, and in doing so they’ll discover if there’s a love connection, they’ve been missing all along. Will they decide it’s time to go their separate ways, or is it finally time to put a ring on it?
First the ladies go on a date, then the guys, then the couples go on dates separately in the same location. Now, not all the couples get through the date in the same location without some conflict! After discussing the dates and their feelings in a group session with Dr. Nicole, they each decide if they will go on another date with the same person or choose to go on a date with a new person.
Dr Nicole also makes house calls! Throughout the process the couples can ask Dr. Nicole over to have a one on one, or a couple session. Some of these talks can get a little disrespectful, and you would think Dr. Nicole would get involved and stop some of this behavior. Nope, she’s like Steph Curry’s left hand, only there to guide! The ultimate decisions, feelings and actions are all on the couples as they work through the therapy process.
When Decision Time comes, the couples are separated for the night before and individually go through their own thoughts and feelings about their relationship. The guys must decide if they are ready and willing to ask for their lady’s hand in marriage, while the ladies have to determine if they are willing to say yes if they are proposed to. Here were my Decision Time predictions:
Shorty(that’s her real name) and Kenneth: They had been dating for 3 years and they met at a Young Thug concert. Shorty did not think Kenneth was mature enough or financially stable enough to move forward to marriage, and truly believed she was out of his league. Kenneth looked at them as a married couple already, but Shorty didn’t! This process seemed to have allowed Shorty to express her dissatisfaction in Kenneth’s status as a man.
I predicted Kenneth would still ask Shorty to marry him, but she would say NO.
RESULTS: On the episode prior to Decision Time, Kenneth expressed his true feelings to Shorty with the help of some liquid courage, and in not the most respectful manner!
He ended up packing his things and appeared to move out. Kenneth and Shorty ended up going their separate ways in the beginning of the Decision Time episode. God bless them both in life and love!
Alfonso and Shay: They had been dating for 3 years, and the met by Alfonso sliding in Shay’s DM! Shay wanted more relationship validation and wanted to feel like she was a part of Alfonso’s family.
Alfonso is Mr. Cool, and just wanted Shay to know she had nothing to worry about. Dr. Nicole seems to have gotten these two on the same page as far as being able to see a path to a future.
I predicted Alfonso would ask Shay to marry him, and she would say YES.
RESULTS: Before Decision Time, Alfonso went to have a talk with Shay’s father to get his approval to ask Shay to marry him again. Her father told him they have his full support and can’t wait for a grandchild!
For Decision Time, the couple went on a beautiful helicopter ride over the city where Alfonso had set up a gorgeous dinner for two to ask Shay to marry him. Shay said YES!
Otis and Charlana: They had been dating for 3 years, and they met in Miami at a film festival. In order to propose Otis wanted more control and for Charlana to be softer.
This process almost took this relationship to a place it would not be able to come back from. Charlana and Otis seemed to be the “my way or the highway” types, and there were a lot of hurt feelings in this process between them both.
I predicted they would either BREAK UP or table the discussion of marriage.
RESULTS: Dr. Nicole expressed a concern that Otis was not been able to understand completely what it is Charlana was asking him for as a partner. She warned Otis that it may seem to be a minor problem for the couple now but will cause marriage problems in the future.
Otis disagreed with Dr. Nicole, respectfully and expressed his love to Charlana by calling her “extremely rare” and asked for her hand in marriage. Charlie said YES!
