You guys already know how I feel about teenagers being disrespectful. So, this scene rubbed me all kinds of wrong and I actually wanted to smack Sydney in the mouth on Renee’s behalf. Anyway, both of these kids could have benefitted from the trifecta of discipline in their formative years.
Back to Karen. Now that her book has been published to mediocre reviews and lawsuits on behalf of her father’s victims, and her spa has opened, she is ready to uproot her daughter from Arizona and bring her to Staten Island. Since she knows her daughter is not keen on leaving her father, uncle, grandparents, all of her friends, and the only life she has known to move to New York and watch her mother famewhore, she has decided to get her baby’s daddy’s assistance. She figures if she can get him to move up here, Karina would be more accepting of the situation that she has no say in anyway.
So, we meet David. Watching David was very distracting to me because I kept expecting him to break into song and had to repeatedly tell myself that he isn’t that guy from Fine Young Cannibals. He just looks a lot like him. Only, not quite as hot.
Anyway, they talk about the last fight they had in which he called her out for abandoning her family. Then they drink wine and stare at each other. Thank God, the producers cut away to the outside of the apartment and the lights being turned off because no one really needs to see what happened next.
Drita goes to visit her friend Nicole and introduces her to Lucky. She talks about the making up with Karen. She wants to do it because she wants to move forward. She doesn’t see any reason that the two of them can’t just be civil to each other and not rehash the past. In her mind, she and Lee are divorcing so what’s there to hash out? She says that while she has no problem with Karen, she just can’t when it comes to CousinSuckUp – and really can you blame her? She says something about chewing on her face like a leach and I am a little freaked out by the glint of hatred in her eyes.
Karen and CousinSuckUp are playing pool and Karen grosses out the nation by talking about how she always thought it would be great to have sex on a pool table. Look, if I had to suffer through that visual image, then so do you. Anyway, she and David got it on. She thinks there may still be feelings there, and wants to see how it goes. CousinSuckUp says something trite about commitment and thankfully, we are out.
Carla and Joe are working out at the gym together. She drops an anvil on his head about his not spending as much time with the kids. And he tells her he has a girlfriend. Not just a girlfriend, but an exclusive relationship. Considering that he wasn’t exclusive when they were married, Carla is a bit miffed. She says that Joe already missed so many years with his kids while they were growing up and now he has some young chippy that is further taking his attention away from them.
Then, Joe pisses me off by saying that the girlfriend has already met the kids. Seriously? You just got out of prison and haven’t seen your kids since they were babies. And, you are already introducing these poor kids to some stranger that you have no idea how long will be in their lives? Carla was totally right not to trust him or jump back into any kind of romantic entanglement with him. What a douche!
