Married to Jonas- Premiere Review
Married to Jonas
Premiere Review by Lauren
The new reality show, Married to Jonas, premiered last night on E! at 10 p.m. EST, and apparently a lot of people tuned in. I'm a fan of the Jonas Brothers. I think it's cool that they are a group of brothers that work and have fun together. At any rate, I watched the show last night of my own accord (meaning nobody asked me to review it; I just am) and I really enjoyed it. It was only a half an hour, which was fine, but it would be kind of cool to have an hour long show. Then again, at 10 p.m., it's already getting late for me with school and everything.
The premise of Married to Jonas is to obviously showcase the new situations they find themselves in. For both of them, they get in-laws that are quite different, they must deal with the new label of husband and wife, and of course...they must negotiate how to be a family with Kevin's music career. The premiere wasted no time in diving into these issues. You see both families and get to realize that Danielle's (or Dani) has a loud, slightly invasive family, while Kevin's is more business-focused, but no less to blame when it comes to breaching their privacy. Both of them seem like great families but Dani's needs to be a little less intrusive when it comes to the house, especially her dad, and Kevin's family needs to realize that he's married now and if they have questions about how he's going to navigate that and his music, they shouldn't jump into that conversation over a family dinner. It was quite interesting to see Dani's reaction to the whole family discussing her having a baby at a suitable time for the Brothers to tour. I get it; I do. This is their career and as Dani said, there are two other guys in the band besides Kevin, but it's her life and eventually her baby, so it needs to work for everyone.
Reality shows obviously invite fans into these people's lives. Dani was a normal girl before Kevin and now she's in the spotlight and having to deal with everything that fame, and marriage, brings. It's interesting to me to see how they navigate these new roles and as a previous fan of the Jonas Brothers, I like seeing their life and story from a new perspective. This review isn't here to say that either family is wrong, but I just wanted to state how I felt after watching the first episode. There are definitely things you can see that need to be worked out, but Dani and Kevin obviously love each other and I'm curious to see how the season goes! I'll continue to check in every Sunday. Will you?!
