She can’t wait to cremate her father and bring him back to Florida so he can be where he always wanted – in the ocean. I guess he’ll be sleepin’ wit da fishes, huh? OW!
Giana and her friend go back to Renee’s to eat dinner. Giana drops the bomb that she’s going to visit her father sans Mom, then her dog drops a bomb under the dining table. Renee seems more upset about the turd than not being able to have it out with her ex in front of her daughter.
Renee’s upset that she can’t be there to protect her from her own father and his conniving ways, but she realizes that her daughter needs to know her father if she wants. She is worried that she won’t be there to defend herself when her ex tries to turn Giana against her.
Leah and Pia meet up with Leah’s mom, Jacquie, because Pia’s mom is a breast cancer survivor. I love this scene, because Leah and Jacqiue sound like me and my mom. Jacquie tells Leah to stop using the f-word, so Leah looks at her and goes, “Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuck.” When Jacquie huffs and rolls her eye, Leah tells her to stop before she throws her through the window. Jacquie responds with, “Oh please, don’t make me beat you.” The whole time, they’re smiling. I love it.
Leah is wearing these grandfather clock pendulums on her ears. I keep waiting for them to start tic-toc’ing. Leah starts telling her mom and Pia that this whole thing makes her feel bad about the way she was when she was a teenager, but Mom tells her that mothers always forgive. There’s almost tears, but Jacquie nips it in the bud.
Pia invites Jacquie to meet with her mother and tells her that her mom grew up in the same neighborhood. It seems that Pia’s and Leah’s moms were hoodlums in the day and ran with girlie gangs. The two moms have tons of friends in common, so this should be cool. Leah tells us with enthusiastic hand gestures that life is too short for all of this fighting and wants her friends to make like Rodney King and just get along.
Leah calls to invite Nora to the SGK walk and to make t-shirts at C-Wows. When Leah tells her that Renee will be there as well, because she doesn’t want to leave anyone out (take note Bass-Mouth Heather from RHONY), Nora tells her that she won’t be going. So, you’ll forego a charity walk to avoid someone you don’t like. That’s cool.
Pia and Bella are nervous about the end of the pole days, because it’s brought in such good money. She says she’ll explore other avenues, which means “I’ll go on a Vh1 reality show and get some good paychecks by making sure I introduce my level-headed daughter and act like a maniac”.
For Bella’s 16th birthday, she wants to go on a nice trip overseas. But, because Pia will be hanging up her g-strings for hi-cut cotton briefs, they can’t go on such an expensive trip.
