Racing Wives Ep. 4 Recap: IDK, My BFF Sam?

Whitney got close to Sam and drifted further away from Mariel on the latest episode of 'Racing Wives' — check out what happened in this GIF recap.

The laws of push and pull played a critical part on the latest episode of Racing Wives, which found Whitney caught between a rock and a hard place (or, more specifically, between Sam and Mariel). Still, it wasn’t all bad news — Amber had a romantic reunion for the ages, and Sam made a couple’s dreams come true. Check out the biggest moments from Episode 4 in GIF-form.
