Catfish’s Nev Schulman Marries Laura Perlongo | E! News
Although they're married now, Nev Schulman and Laura Perlongo's relationship “We were dating for five weeks, just over a month, and I sort of but if I can give any piece of advice to anyone it's that give second chances. A “catfish” is a person who creates a false online identity in the hopes of luring people into romantic relationships. Nev Schulman starred in the. Catfish star Nev Schulman married his girlfriend Laura Perlongo in a romantic ceremony in the backyard of his father's home in the Hamptons.
The Catfisher, much like the rest of the people Nev and Max call, is not at all stressed about being called. They comply with absolutely no complaint or resistance.
This has all happened so fast. There always seems to be snow on the ground. The Catfishee seems to always go with a peacoat and jeans. Did the Catfisher just wait around all day for this? Were they watching something on tv for the hours leading up to this momentous and filmed occasion? The Catfisher always comes out wearing a hoodie. The Catfisher has revealed themselves.
But I love you? The Catfishee has a breakdown. How does it always seem to entertain you, even though the same thing happens every episode?PTSD Combat Veteran: Relationships and PTSD
Nev and Max try to have a serious discussion with the Catfisher. The Catfisher and Catfishee are forced to confront each other. You think to yourself: This is absolutely insane. And you know exactly what happens. Joseph is "also" a Marine, and there's a lot more convincing proof all over it of his connections to other real people and institutions and such. Time to move on to "Bryon," starting with his phone number, which returns a result: Since neither Max nor Nev says it, I'll conjecture that the location may explain what Brittany had characterized as Bryon's "country" accent.
They search Heather's full name on Facebook, but nothing really comes up. The Presentation Of Findings Max and Nev go back over to Brittany's, apparently interrupting a maxi-dress party she had thrown for herself and her cousin Renee.
Before they get into it, Nev and Max quiz Renee about Brittany and what she's like in relationships. Renee says that Brittany's lived with her "off and on" since Brittany was fifteen, and that when she has romantic disappointments, she'll "take a week off" and go cry it out at Renee's, kids in tow.
Brittany doesn't have a job! Renee pleases Brittany by saying she can tell Brittany's happier since she started "seeing" Bryon I just don't want him to not be who he says he is and for her to get hurt in the long run. Brittany doesn't seem too alarmed by the reveal that the image of him totally in the middle of sniping is probably clip art. But when they show her "Bryon"'s face on Joseph's Facebook profile, she starts to flush.
Furthermore, the page indicates that he's currently stationed in Japan.

Brittany breaks, at last, and starts bawling that she's angry at herself. Well, she's not NOT stupid -- though exactly how stupid she is remains to be seen. Renee puts the blame back on Bryon -- which, to be fair, is where more than half of it belongs though maybe not much more than half -- rhetorically asking, "Why would you do that to somebody? How could you do that to somebody?
Because your kids are little.
There are things they don't need to know. Although I guess if she's probably keeping up the story of Santa Claus for their sakes, she might easily make the logical leap and make them believe in Bryon, another man who doesn't exist. Seriously, though, responsible single parents will see new romantic prospects for months before putting their children's hearts at risk by bringing them into their children's lives, and this one thinks she should just go ahead and involve at least one of her children in a "relationship" with someone she's literally not even "seeing" and who is supposedly unstable due to PTSD?
Great parenting; it's pretty clear why neither of the men who are her children's fathers thought it wise to let Brittany put their kids in front of MTV's cameras. In spite of all this, I guess we're supposed to feel bad for Brittany as she shuffles off to some other part of the house to cry Renee doesn't help by going after her and suggesting, "Maybe he just used a different name. Like, you never know. This may seem like the right thing to say in the moment, but giving Brittany what is pretty clearly false hope is not a loving act, RENEE.
Finally, Brittany comes back out and apologizes. Max nicely says "it's shocking" not reallyand Nev adds, "No one wants to get lied to or deserves to be tricked. Do you want to be this girl? Of course you don't. So learn from her failure and don't be a simpleton. Be a champion, like this girl.

Though anyone would find this pretty damning, Nev tries to soften the blow by suggesting that Bryon could be Heather's brother or boyfriend or something. TV Brittany's like, I know you want to say "I told you so," so just do it, and Renee demurs, but tells Nev and Max, "I always tell her, like, 'Learn how to just be by yourself and spend time with just you and your kids.
That is actually excellent advice that I have zero confidence she will ever take, so good luck to her children, since Brittany seems to have no interest in Renee's reminder that they will give Brittany the unconditional love she was apparently so desperate for that she let herself believe all this goddamn nonsense. She does, so he goes outside to call Bryon, but the call goes straight to voicemail. When he goes back in to report on what's just happened, he's already referring to the person they're trying to reach as "them" and not "him," and though he corrects his pronoun mid-sentence, I think we all know which way Nev is leaning on this one.
Nev also reminds Brittany that they have the address where Bryon's cell phone owner lives, so they could just go there.
10 most incredible Catfish episodes ever
God, this season's getting repetitive. Nev and Max are in the car on their way back to the hotel when Nev's phone rings with a call from "Bryon's sister. What do you know, her name is Heather. Nev recaps the message he left on "Bryon"'s phone as though he doesn't know Heather heard it, because she is Bryon, and Heather says she's calling not because she is Bryon but because she thinks coming on the show wouldn't be good for Bryon.
Nev butters up Heather by saying she sounds nice, but also, that they know the "Bryon" Facebook page is fake and that "Bryon"'s phone is registered to her and that if "Bryon" were a real person he would spell his name one of the two accepted ways. Some of that might be me editorializing.
Heather says she doesn't know what Bryon does online, but cops to the phone thing, saying they have a family plan. Nev asks Heather to speak to "Brrrrrryon," and Heather says she'll see what she can do.
Nev calls Brittany to report what Heather told him and how fishy it all is, basically. He thinks they should plan to go to Kentucky regardless; Brittany agrees. The next day, as they're heading for the airport, Nev lets Brittany send "Bryon" a text from his phone, and when Bryon replies that "he" is "kinda scared" about how "super-fast" this is, Nev is back to using "them" again before dictating a text for Brittany to send about being honest and arranging a place to meet, and then they're at the airport.
Later, in her hotel room in Louisville, Brittany has apparently taken a shower and then put her stank plane clothes back on gross as she reports that "Bryon" has sent her a text whining about not being ready: She must be so pitty and crotchy right now.
Those garments should be in a hotel laundry bag in a closed drawer until she's ready to pack up again and leave, not on her showered body. Her hygiene isn't the point? Maybe it should be.
