Pandora asks Sinead…whatever. It’s Sinead, it all just sounds like “wah, wah..” And besides, Amber confides in Sharon that her brother does drag. And he lets her out of the house in sweats? He needs to turn in his drag card. Sharon’s all “Who in the what how?” in the work room but says she loves a family that drags together.
Sinead’s in with Ru…whatever. Ru still finds some good advice for her that in her job as a “nanny” she always gives the children encouragement and everything they do is fabulous so use that same mindset and make Rita Rocket her fabulosity nanny.
Sharon’s giving Amber tips on sashaying in her heels and they’re having a great time. Amber’s spirits are up until she takes her shoe off…and her big toe’s all wonky. With all her foot and ankle problems, Amber starts to have a little wobble.
The passion of the toe.
Sharon gets very concerned and drops character to do a little triage and see if Amber can stand and put pressure on it. As soon as she’s standing and relaxing the pain goes away. It was just a muscle spasm. Gurr. But I’ve had that happen to my toes and it’s just fucking weird.
Amber hobbles into Ru’s office with a plastic bag full of ice and he asks if she hurt her foot. She realizes it was kind of goofy so she tells him, “Yeah…taking OFF the shoes.” Heh. Ru makes a convoluted analogy between foot injuries and not being grounded but Amber gets it and says that she’s not feeling grounded because she’s been listening to the voice in her head that tells her to feel sorry for herself. Ru tells her to be honest with herself and ask if she isn’t addicted to the pity and to stop playing small. Wow…tough love for Amber. She’s crying but responding well so Ru tells her to use Daisy Flowers to show the world that she’s back and she’s fabulous.
Raja gives Mary a brief lesson on being girly but Mary’s just too amused by Raja to care.
She’s like a tall, skinny scoop of rainbow sherbet.
Mary’s in with Ru and telling him she doesn’t feel sexy for her husband. Ru asks if her husband’s told her that. Quite the opposite. He says “he loves a tamale or an enchilada. It doesn’t matter to him [she’s] still as spicy as the day” they met. Ah, projection. Why blame yourself when you can blame someone else. To her credit, Mary knows this whole “Oh my husband won’t find me sexy, anymore” was a load of shit.
Mary tells Ru, like she’s been saying all episode, that she wants to love and accept who she is now and Ru, like with Amber, tells her that she needs to confront whether she’s really just addicted to the unhappiness and let it go. Let Stella’s confidence be her confidence. Then Mary makes the obvious joke and it’s on to final preparations!
