Back to Trina’s! Nev tells her about the four kids and that it’s not likely that Trina’s been talking to the guy in the pictures. But the good news is that this guy – this guy she LOVES, Nev is careful to point out – lives right here in DC and they can go meet him! Trina hesitates but decides to go. Oh hooray, Nev can be the catalyst in another beautiful (fraudulent) friendship!
The next day Trina puts on her straight hair, a tight bright dress, and announces that this is Lee’s chance to win her over. They drive practically just around the block and pull into Lee’s driveway. Geez, Lee could have been hopping over to Trina’s every night with binoculars, who knows? Trina whispers that she hopes he’s good looking, ha ha ha ha ha. Don’t judge, Trina. Nev approaches the door himself while Trina hangs back with Max and Lee finally comes out. It’s not Scorpio, but we knew that. Trina goes, “Scorpio?” and Lee goes, “Uh yeah.” She says, “So everything was a lie?” To which Lee swears that no, only the pictures were a lie. Everything else was true. What about your four kids? Oh and that. That’s it. Oh and he’s not a male dancer. Nev asks how old he is. Oh yeah, that. He’s 32, not 27 like he said. THAT’S it. No more lies.
“And this isn’t really my house. And my name isn’t Lee. And I DO know how to skype. And I’m married.”
So what’s up with using Scorpio’s picture? Lee says that he runs a little company where he hooks people up with acting and modeling gigs. This guy Larry Drummer came to him and asked him to create a profile using his picture to see how women would respond – like if he had the right look. Ahem. What now? Is that how actors are starting out these days? Asking strangers to create false profiles to see how the opposite sex responds? I’m pretty sure Scorpio could have done that himself – and did. Just like the majority of males in America, most of whom aren’t even actors. Sorry Lee, but I’m chalking that up to another one of your tales. I mean, how did it work out? Are you Scorpio’s agent now? Sending him on auditions are you? Come ON. Trina stands there shaking her head until Lee says that she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. Then she nods her head. Ha ha ha. But I like that Trina speaks up and tells Lee that she was honest with him and she feels very misled. Lee just squirms, saying he didn’t know what to do because he didn’t want to hurt her. Trina says it’s too late for that. Lee asks if there’s any way he can make it up to her and Trina starts whispering, “Break… break.” HA! She’s funny. Nev and Max take her aside to regroup. She’s not sure what to do next and Nev says it’s obvious that Lee really cares about her. Thanks, Captain Friendship. They decide to leave so that Trina can gather her thoughts. She gets into the car and starts crying. Again – normal.
“At least I didn’t go all the way to Atlanta to get a look at this guy.”
