After meeting his wife for the first time, Olajuwon gushes in a confessional, "I [saw] my wife and I have no words. Every time she looks at me and she smiles -- I think she is gorgeous. You know, my wife is hot! I am just staring at her."
"I just want to look at her," he adds, nearly speechless. "I just can't believe that I'm married."
Afterparty host Keshia Knight Pulliam pointed out how Olajuwon seemed completely smitten with Katina after spending about only five minutes with her.
"Was he what you envisioned?" Keshia asked Katina during the new Lifetime spinoff.
"No," Katina admitted. "So I thought I was going to get someone who is, like, 6'3" and Michael B. Jordan-type vibes."
"But personality-wise, yes," Katina confirmed. "I had asked the experts for someone who knew how to hold a conversation. Personality-wise, I could tell right away, 'Okay, it's not going to be boring with him.'"
Katina quickly learned that her husband is the opposite of "boring."
Once Olajuwon started to sip on champagne, words rolled off his tongue and Katina could barely get a word in edgewise. Katina even told the cameras she felt a bit "overwhelmed" by her husband's energy.
"I just hope I can handle my new husband," Katina noted on last week's episode.

The officiant of Katina and Olajuwon's wedding, in fact, warned Katina that her husband's family and friends consider Olajuwon to be "a ball of energy" and they hoped she would enter the marriage with "a lot of patience."
"Olajuwon loves a home-cooked meal. I hope you're no stranger to the kitchen," the officiant said during the ceremony.
Katina flashed a look of worry and concern on her face before exchanging vows, but the officiant noted how Katina may be a quick learner.
"We'll do it together. We'll get it together," Olajuwon assured his wife.
Keshia asked Katina on Afterparty what she thought of Olajuwon upon seeing him for the first time, when he was standing at the other side of the aisle.
"I was like, 'Okay, he's handsome,'" Katina recalled. "And I could tell that he most likely had a nice body. And then I saw the tattoos, so I was like, 'Ohh, I like tattoos!'"
Keshia, however, confessed that she "felt really nervous" standing in front of her groom on their wedding day.
"I had to look into his eyes, and I was like, 'I don't even know you! I don't want to look in your eyes.' The sun was shining bright and I was just trying to see what I had to work with!" Katina joked.
"And so I felt overwhelmed, but I was happy that he was attractive. So I was like, 'Phew, okay, that's half the battle.'"
