The Secret Life of the American Teenager Review: Rumor Has It

at .

It seems like the summer heat got into everyone's head on this week's The Secret Life of the American Teenager. In "The Text Best Thing" friendships were rekindled, rumors went flying and wild ideas were tossed around.

Could Adrian commit to Omar? Would Ben ever want to switch schools? Let's dive right in!

Amy's Deep In Thought

It's safe to say that Omar's marriage proposal was a bit much for an 18-year old girl who has already been divorced and lost a baby, but I really think that Omar and Adrian are great together. I like how Adrian said let's take this one step at a time and work our way up to a longer commitment. It's probably the most realistic thing to happen on this show in ages!

Then we have Adrian's ex-hubby Ben and his girlfriend Dylan, who Alice referred to as "Fatal Attraction." For Alice's entire hilarious line, hit our The Secret Life of the American Teenager quotes section. 

Dylan's friends really seem to think poorly of Ben, despite always hanging out at his house and calling his dad "the King." Basically they like Ben's money, they think Ben is okay enough for Dylan, but they think Ben's friends are white trash. I simply can't even get into it with these cheesy bitches. Who do they think they are? Next! 

It's funny how quickly Lauren was to forget that Amy stood by her side after everything that happened with Madison. I know that Lauren and Madison are butt buddies and miss each other, but hating their third best friend is just spiteful. I really don't believe that Madison and Lauren acted so dumb and naive at the beginning of this series. Why does it seem that so many of these characters have become less likeable?

Amy is constantly in a mood, as we've discussed. Madison and Lauren are painful. I know Ethan is new, but he is such a pill to be around. Was he added to the show because Ashley hasn't been on it and Secret Life needed its dose of teenage angst? Then, on the other hand, Ricky has turned into this really sweet guy and Adrian has become hilarious. Jack and Grace are pretty much the same and Ben's personality depends on what girl he's currently obsessed with.

I really don't understand the obsession with Anne's sexuality. She's in Europe! She's not even around to do anything gossip worthy! Does George really have nothing better to talk about? I suppose that is a rhetorical question since we all know that the answer is no, George does not have anything better to talk about. Also, why would he share that piece of information with Kathleen?

Kathleen got tipsy and shared this tidbit of gossip with Grace, who might have the biggest mouth on the show. Well, biggest mouth after Madison and Lauren's. I liked that little flash to the Brady Bunch screen of everyone simultaneously on the screen at once. Except, instead of a 70's montage, it was very modern with a bunch of kids on their cell phones. Jack's dad made a shrewd observation about today's kids and technology.

What did you all think of this week's episode? Did you enjoy Ricky's American flag boxers? Hit the comments!
