Racing Wives Ep. 5 Recap: Wedding Bells + Racing Hell

Mariel got closer to the aisle on the latest episode of 'Racing Wives,' but is Amber moving further from the track?

Wedding bells were ringing on the latest episode of Racing Wives — sadly, Amber’s racing dreams continue to register as relative silence.

Though Whitney and Mariel continued to drift apart because of their diverting social lives across the Charlotte, North Carolina social scene, Mariel had to temporarily put the fallout on the back burner at the start of Episode 5, as she and her husband-to-be were only six months away from their wedding day. Mariel, who was married (PUNS!) to the idea of a forest theme, hadn’t yet found her perfect venue — and while she loved the idea of using the same winery that Whitney and Austin used at their wedding, she wasn’t ready to pick up the phone and call her former BFF.

“This is by far the longest [Whitney and I have] ever gone without talking,” Mariel said. “This whole wedding planning process I feel would be so much more fun and so much less stressful if I had her with me. I just need her here. She just gets it.”

Still, Whitney was tired of the cold war, decided enough was enough and, with the help of her husband Kyle, arranged a dinner with Mariel and Paul.
