House Husbands Review
The 7th episode of House Husbands was a terrible one for Justin. He couldn’t get anything right and it has likely costed him big time. Despite all of the animosity, Kane still managed to forgive Justin for socking him in the face, which is somewhat unrealistic, but whatever. The episode had a few surprises and plenty of laughs. For that, it deserves a 7 out of 10! Be sure to catch up with previous episodes here.
