‘Married at First Sight’ star Airris Williams slams Kirsten Grimes: Get your “sh-t together” for Shaquille!

Reality

Married at First Sight star Airris Williams has slammed Kirsten Grimes, saying she needs to “get her sh-t together” with Shaquille Dillon.

During Kirsten and Shaquille’s one-month anniversary roller-skating date on Married at First Sight’s sixteenth season, Shaquille told his wife that he was interested in learning more about her across the board. Kirsten therefore suggested that, in order to open up, Shaquille needed to be around her more so they could have intentional conversations.

But Shaquille argued that Kirsten wasn’t letting her guard down no matter what he tried. While they talked about “getting to that next stage,” Shaquille claimed they always ended up “in the same place.”

Since Kirsten thought she and Shaquille were lacking “quality time” together, Shaquille defined his idea of “quality time” with his wife during the March 15 episode of Married at First Sight: Afterparty.

“Quality time for me is supporting each other. We spend so much time together at the apartment. It seems like Kirsten’s quality time is, ‘Let’s sit on the sofa. Tell me about yourself. How do you feel in this moment?'” Shaquille recalled.

“And for me, it’s about going out and enjoying each other, like, let me learn something about you that I didn’t know.”

Shaquille claimed Kirsten would often initiate conversations about their feelings but then she would keep her walls up and withhold information about herself.

“It ends up being me talking about my feelings,” Shaquille noted.

Afterparty host Keshia Knight Pulliam thought Kirsten was “showing up in her own way” by at least coming up with questions for her husband and engaging with him.

But when Airris was asked how he’d feel if he had been in Shaquille shoes, Airris admitted, “For lack of a better word, I’d tell her to get her sh-t together!”

Airris continued, “We’ve talked about this multiple times. [Shaquille] seems very open and vulnerable and transparent — and [Kirsten] needs to do the exact same thing.”

Shaquille and Kirsten were matched for matrimony on Married at First Sight’s sixteenth season, which filmed in Nashville, TN, by show experts Pastor Calvin Roberson and Dr. Pepper Schwartz.

Kirsten wasn’t attracted to Shaquille at the start of the experiment, but once she found herself liking Shaquille’s personality and wanting to grow closer to him, Shaquille became frustrated with Kirsten’s lack of vulnerability and confusing expectations of him.

Shaquille alleged on Afterparty that Kirsten would tell him different things on and off-camera, and he claimed her words and actions didn’t align.

Shaquille said, for instance, Kirsten wouldn’t want Shaquille touching or kissing her off-camera, but then she was shown telling her friend on the latest episode how she wanted Shaquille to kiss and hug her when he got home from work.

Based on the latest sixteenth-season Married at First Sight episode, the disconnect seemed to be that Kirsten believed she could take her time and had “a lifetime” to share things about herself and divulge details about her past.

Shaquille, on the other hand, was thinking about Decision Day. He apparently didn’t want to say “yes” to staying married to a woman whom he barely knew.

Kirsten admitted in a confessional that she didn’t want her family and friends to get attached to Shaquille if he was going to split on Decision Day and be “one foot in” the marriage “and one foot out.”

Kirsten wanted to feel secure in knowing that Shaquille was committed to her, regardless of the circumstances or timeline for the show.

Shaquille also got upset when Kirsten told their fellow cast members that they only had “a little bit of a connection” and “a little bit” of chemistry.

“When we get with everybody else, I’m left blindsided, like, ‘Damn, she couldn’t tell me this at the house? She couldn’t tell me when we got home later? She can’t tell me how she honestly feels?'” Shaquille vented to his wife.

Shaquille complained how everything was “on Kirsten time,” adding, “It’s always on your time, of what you’ve wanted, and for me, that ain’t gonna fly!”

Kirsten told Shaquille to just ask how she’s feeling and work on having deep and intentional conversation, but Shaquille replied, “I don’t know if I want to be with somebody who just continues to have a guard up with somebody who actually wants to be in this marriage with them.”
