10:30 pm Dirty Soap (E!) | The season finale goes a little something like this, Nadia Bjorlin tells me: “Relationships will be questioned and tested more than ever when we spend a night camping, and Mama Bjorlin continues to make her feelings known.” Now I may be reading this wrong, but I think I’m about to get the nod for Future Son-In-Law.
