The Secret Life of the American Teenager Review: Breakup Blues

at . Comments

A word to the wise: never spill your secrets to Adrian! The latest episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager showed us something that most people have probably known since the beginning of this series: don't trust Adrian with private matters.

Another good tip learned in "When Bad Things Happen to Bad People?" Don't go near Adrian when she's been hurt.

Gossip With the Girls

Lest you think I'm being too hard on Adrian, I'll start by saying that it sucks what happened between her and Omar. Though it might save them both from a lot of future heartache, the present situation is definitely not enjoyable. The thing is, I always thought Omar was a pretty stand up guy. But the way he sprung that breakup on Adrian was classless.

He spent a whole night having sex with her... then dropped the bomb the next morning while she was headed out to class. "Oh by the way, I need my ring back." Hold up a second. Seriously?!? It might be a family heirloom, but he could've gone about things a little bit better. For starters, he shouldn't have slept with Adrian when he knew he was going to end it; especially not the night before.

My sympathies extend to Adrian in that manner; however, her behavior to Jack and Ricky was straight up crazy. Part of me wants to say that she did them a favor, but the other part of me is thinking it's just none of her business. Even if she did do them a favor, her delivery was awful. Poor Jack probably ran off crying. Good thing Ricky can see straight through that BS. He knows that if Adrian is miserable, she needs everyone else around her to be miserable too.

Maybe you should go get some help and stop hurting people around you. And then maybe somebody can love you. | permalink

While I'm glad Ricky didn't fall into her trap the way Jack did, Grace could've used Jack's confrontation as an opportunity to be truthful about her hesitations. Instead she boldface lied and ran to warn Amy.

Concerning Amy, is Ben hallucinating about this e-diary? Did she really write these things? If so, what the hell?!? When Adrian went on her rant she did mention that Amy at least loved Ricky, but she didn't want to get married. Then she threw in that jab that he was "just John's dad." With only two weeks to go until the finale episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, the stakes are really high.

Do you believe Ben? What do you think about Adrian's tantrum? Is Amy lying?
