Breaking news: The world’s biggest d-bag made his reality TV debut Tuesday night. Seriously. Within seconds of appearing on an episode of Bravo’s Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis, Ryan, husband to gorgeous fitness model Jordan, brings up the fact that his wife of six months used to have an unbelievable body, like “Victoria’s Secret-worthy.” He says this in front of his wife, who might weigh in at 100 lbs. Soaking wet.
The premise of Interior Therapy is two-fold: Jeff Lewis comes in to remodel a room or two in a home, while also helping to remodel the relationship of a family that is often fractured due to hoarding or other obsessive behaviors. Ryan’s issue appears to be simultaneously obsessing over his own perfection and his wife’s imperfections, causing Jeff Lewis -- the king of narcissism -- to look directly into the camera and announce that he’s never met a bigger narcissist in his life.
The train wreck quickly derails even further, with Ryan saying he wished Jordan would get a boob job and admitting that he pushes her to eat salads (despite knowing full well that sweet Jordan doesn’t actually like salads). And then came the penultimate offense: Ryan encourages Jordan to show off her ears. Why, you ask? Jordan recently got surgery to pull them back, because as Ryan explained, she looked like “Dumbo.”
When Jordan actually stands up to Ryan -- which is a rare, uncomfortable scenario to watch unfold -- Ryan seems to go into shut-down mode, finally snapping at her, “Stop being so strong or I’ll knock you out.” He says it in a jokey, sing-songy tone. But, he still says it. And if he’s saying stuff like this on camera, what on earth is he unleashing on this woman off camera? Watch a clip:
Oh, and more proof of Ryan’s king douchery: He likes and dislikes décor by how “sexy” it is. And whether or not it will make guests “want to take their clothes off.” Because that’s what you want to happen when your friends see your new sofa, right? You want them to strip down from being so turned on by the sex appeal that a beige sofa oozes.
Here's hoping that when Jordan watched how horribly hateful her husband was in this episode, she had a giant wake-up call (if she hadn't already). Our wish: that she packed her bags, took the sexiest home accessories she could find and walked far, far away from Ryan.
