Ep. 9 Preview & Your Thoughts on Denise & Getti

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 12:26pm GMT

Looks like the jury is still out when it comes to Denise and Getti, but it does seem like most of you do think that Getti is a likable guy!

myLifetime.com member Rheinmeister7 says, "After watching those scenes with Denise and Getti, I have to say that I would probably prefer to see the two of them together," while MamaKristin weighs in by saying, "She needs to look at herself, figure out what she wants, and then deal with it when [Frank] comes home."

Denise really does need to make a decision, and soon. By the looks of this sneak preview of "Army Wives," Episode 9, that may not be possible:


Will Denise come clean to Frank? Will Getti make it? Continue to weigh in with your thoughts here on the blog and sound off on the "Army Wives" Community where you can interact with hundreds of show fans just like you!

Ep. 8 Recap: Chase Gets Busted and Denise Crosses the Line

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 5:17pm GMT

What an episode! Tonight, Pamela's suspicions from last week's episode are dead on when Chase gets arrested with the rest of his Delta Force brothers during a war profiteering bust. The good news is that he's not involved in the crime.

Speaking of crimes, looks like Roxy's new old waitress, Sandi, is a fan of filing lawsuits when she doesn't get her way on the job. Roxy put her foot down, and with some legal advise from Claudia Joy, she calls Sandi's bluff.

Roland shows he's a man of his word and won't betray a student's trust, even to save his own teaching job, when she reveals to Roland that she has been accepted to West Point, but is gay. Karma pays off when the student becomes the teacher and Roland's pupil schools him on one very important lesson: the Army is about honor. She reveals her secret to secure his job when others assume they are having an inappropriate relationship off campus.

Denise lets her infatuation with Getti get the best of her when they share a passionate kiss at the hospital. How will she cope with this now that's she's officially crossed the line? Will her head or heart win this battle?

What did you think of tonight's episode? Is there hope for Denise and Frank or is this a sign that their marriage is over?

"Army Wives" Ep. 8 Preview: Don't Mess With Her Man!

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 11:45am GMT

Wow! Looks like Roxy doesn't just have Betty's Bar & Grill to keep her occupied — she also has a new employee's wandering eyes to look after!

Watch this preview of Sunday's brand new episode of "Army Wives" where "Ugly Betty" star Ana Ortiz stirs up some girl vs. girl trouble on post as new Betty's (the other one, that is!) waitress, Sandi:


Do you think Roxy will fire Sandi on her first day or just give her a well deserved hair-pull and a kick in the pants? Post your guesses here on the blog!

Ep 7: Roxy Launches "Betty's Bar & Grill" and Pamela Plays Detective!

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 11:57pm GMT

Directed by Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal's dad, Stephen Gyllenhaal, tonight's episode of "Army Wives" was chock full of exciting new plot twists and turns!

First thing's first: Roxy reveals that the name of the Hump Bar is now changed to Betty's Bar & Grill. It must have been so difficult for Claudia Joy and Emmalin to set foot in that place, name change or not, but I think they were better for getting through it together.

Second, Pamela. ...Or should we say Sherlock Moran?! Her old police days are creeping back up to the surface again. She knows something's fishy at Chase's Delta Force buddy's house, and now she's been banned from even setting foot there. Hopefully this doesn't have negative consequences for Chase when he's deployed next.

Finally, Jeremy Sherwood is back! It took seven whole episodes to show his face on post, but he finally did it! Looks like the Army was a good fit for him and is providing some much needed distraction from Amanda's lingering memory. I wonder why Denise didn't introduce him to "Getti" at the lunch table, yet apologized about it later? That must mean something! What do you think?

Apparently it meant something to Roland Burton. Roland does what he does best by playing therapist, and confronts Denise about her relationship with "Getti" in next week's episode. Sneak a peek now:

The Real Roxy and Trevor LeBlanc?

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 4:32pm GMT

As promised, I have video to share from the "Army Wives" event at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. We met many amazing real military husbands and wives at that special screening, but two who really stuck out in my mind were a young married couple, The Parduns.

Jordan and Jason Pardun could pass as the real life Roxy and Trevor LeBlanc! Watch these two share their personal Army story:

Ep. 6 Recap: Pamela's Radio Recall

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 7:20pm GMT

It keeps getting better and better each week!

Pamela's radio show gets abruptly shut down after Joan's replacement oversteps his bounds, causing our fiery redhead to have at it with "Have At It" and learn more about a radio job in Atlanta for a change of pace...and a big fat paycheck!

When Michael Holden orders an apology and for Pamela to be fully reinstated to her show, she realizes that chatting about the Army life she leads is the best possible fit she'll ever find.

What did you think of this week's episode? Should Pamela have taken the radio job in Atlanta anyway? Was she better off staying on post with "Have At It?"

Check back later this week for part one of my exclusive interview with Mrs. Pamela Moran herself, actress Brigid Brannagh! She'll be answering your fan questions and much, much more!

Don't forget to post in our "Army Wives" Community about tonight's exciting episode.
