Do you remember AB, her ex from the very first episode? He moved to Saudi Arabia without telling Amy. Given what we’ve seen of Amy so far, AB’s decision seems completely rational.
Anyway, she is going to a party in Greenwich, CT, at her friend Joseph’s. On the way, she stops by a potential client’s home. Potential client Tina is a referral from friend Joseph. When Amy interviews Tina, she asks some general questions about Tina’s past relationships and if she’s currently seeing anyone. Tina tells Amy she is emotionally intelligent enough to know not to talk about exes on a first date. Tina is “a little more savvy than that.” A person who’s been living in an underground bomb shelter for the past 50 years could emerge and be more savvy than Amy.
Amy is kind of rude to Tina, which I find interesting, as a) she’s not Patti Stanger and can’t pull it off and b) I thought she was more of a customer’s always right type matchmaker. Amy lets Tina know she’s rusty because she’s been single for a while. Tina: I’m not rusty about talking to people. According to Amy, Tina is an alpha female and cannot continue to behave in this masculine manner. How is saying you know not to discuss your divorce on a first date masculine? I guess in order for a woman to have a successful dating life, she’s supposed to be a shrinking violet and be on the verge of a complete emotional collapse at all times. I think Amy was meant to live in Victorian times.
She’s really got the “I’m someone who gives sage advice” face down.
Tina helps Amy into her coat, and Amy can’t resist the urge to tell her how masculine that is. Tina says she was just being a good hostess, which is what I thought as well. Time for Joesph’s party, which Tina is also attending. Amy is hoping to meet a guy, because she can’t just go there to have a nice time with friends. Joseph has a rule that guests must either take off their shoes or wear surgical booties in the house. Wasn’t this an episode of Sex and the City? Carrie’s shoes ended up getting stolen. Memo to HRG’s production minions: don’t recycle plotlines of shows I watched on a loop while in hungover in college.
Nice booties! ;- )
Tina greets Amy and immediately brings up how Amy called her masculine. Amy clarifies that what Tina actually has is masculine energy. Which to a drunk female at a party probably sounds so much better. Tina thinks Amy is threatened by her, and has issues with Amy’s rules. Now, I’m not saying this was the right time for Tina to bring any of this up, but Amy takes the bait. Amy gets combative, speaking in a defensive tone and waving her hand about wildly. She tells Tina that she can either listen to her or stay single. It’s really just a glowing advertisement overall for Amy’s company and services.
Hand waving. The mark of any good Bravo fight.
