I am worried because I can see her slipping. Don’t do it Drita! I know it’s easy for me to say this based on edited footage, but the way he spoke to you on the phone is enough for me to say conclusively that he would be a toxic presence.
She talks to Big Ang on the phone about the visit. She is practically gushing about how well the visit went. She says that she spent half the visit crying in the bathroom. She says they barely spoke, but there was a peaceful silence between them. She just felt good being with him. It’s tough. I hope she doesn’t take him back. And, she says that she is now all fucked up because she doesn’t want to have feelings for him because of how badly he hurt her with the cheating and incarcerations.
Ang and Love complain about men. Ang is really hoping that Lee and Drita get back together, and it’s just something I can’t get behind. Ang herself doesn’t believe in waiting for people who are in jail. So, why would she encourage Drita to?
Karen is calling Dave. She can’t just act civil. She acts like a jealous ex girlfriend – which she is. I wonder how many takes they did of this, because the audio is spliced to hell and back. She thinks it’s fucked up that he told his daughter, you know that he is living with, that he has a girlfriend before telling Karen who is hundreds of miles away being a famewhore. Maybe he wanted to tell you in person Karen? Maybe he knew you would act like a jealous shrew even though you guys aren’t together anymore? Or, maybe he didn’t want to give up his rent free living situation.
But, here is the thing, Karen is so much more furious about the fact that there is another girl than she is about the fact that her daughter is interacting with this woman, that this woman has been intimate with Dave in her house, or that Dave is in her house living rent free. The fact that she might push her daughter away is completely secondary to the fact that Dave has a girlfriend. And, that should tell you ALL you need to know about what Karen’s priorities are.
Karen is saying that Dave is disloyal and none of it makes any sense. They aren’t together. He has a girlfriend now. She herself was looking for a guy with a nice loaf of bread a couple of seasons ago. I suspect that Karen thought she would be really in demand with the men by now but Dave is the only sex she’s been able to get and now he is with someone else.
Drita goes to visit a friend to discuss her feelings about Lee. I love that Drita has appropriate people to talk to. But, I hate that EVERYONE is encouraging her to take Lee back. She can’t just try it out because her kids will be affected if it doesn’t work out. Her friend says that if he hadn’t gone to jail the two of them would not have any problems. I don’t think that’s true since he cheated when he was out of jail the last time. So, that is delusional talk right there – or at the very least some truly deep denial.
