9 Revelations From Breaking Amish: Brave New World -- "The Shunning Truth" Reunion Show
Michelle Beadle, you guys. She's hosted us through two regular Breaking Amish reunions. Now she's back to get us through the first-ever Breaking Amish: Brave New World reunion, otherwise known as "The Shunning Truth." What did she get the six cast members -- Iva, Betsy, Lizzie, Samuel, Devon and Matthew -- to reveal? Where to start?
The top 9 revelations from "The Shunning Truth" reunion show.
1. Let's begin with who went back and who stayed English: Devon, Betsy, Matthew, and Samuel all remained Amish. Iva is sort of a modified Mennonite -- what she calls a liberal Mennonite. And Lizzie left the Amish to join Hoj in the English world.
2. Matthew doesn't like strip clubs: "I cannot handle that stuff," he said. "I want to wait until I get married."
3. The threesome between Iva, Betsy and Devon was so awkward on so many levels.
The group discussed the ill-fated threesome that took place in the Los Angeles house. "I remember making out with Iva, and then Devon taking over," said Betsy. "I just felt like I was loose and free and could do what I wanted to."
"I was mad at her when I should have been mad at myself," said Iva, of the incident. She said she now regrets calling the police on Betsy.
It really begs the question: what's the Amish punishment for a threesome?
4. There is some crazy tension between Iva and Lizzie -- and it doesn't look like they'll be spending Christmas together anytime soon. "I really trusted her. Out of everybody in the house, I really trusted her," said Lizzie "You can't move on, and that's your problem not mine," said Iva. "I forgave you for it, I'm not gonna forget about it," said Lizzie.
5. Betsy revealed why she stole Iva's hair from her hairbrush
Betsy was using the hair to cast some form of a spell on Iva. Or in her words, "I took it home and took care of it," said Betsy. OKAY.
6. Lizzie thought it was really hypocritical of Samuel to sleep with married Betsy. "He was so mad at me for getting pregnant, but then he hooked up with a married lady," said Lizzie. "I don't blame you one bit," said Samuel.
7. Matt reveals that there's video footage of him sticking dollar bills down (male!) strippers g-string that he almost deleted.
It was filmed on a night out with one of his fashion designer mentors. "I know everyone assumed that I'm gay because I'm into fashion, and I'm not a masculine guy and everyone just takes that the wrong way." But the rest of the cast disagrees, and says that Matt's sexuality is misread for a number of different reasons, but of course, Matthew doesn't really want to talk about it. Felicia does reveal that Matt doesn't want their relationship to go beyond hugging and holding hands. Poor girl.
8. Andrew is still in prison -- but had kind words for everyone, including Devon. He wrote a letter that Michelle shared with the cast. "I'm doing well," he writes. "I'm just mad at myself. Nobody wants to be in jail, but I just keep coming back. I just can't seem to follow the rules."
9. Baby Caden is still ridiculously cute.
