I want to smack her friend for telling her to throw away her pride and take him back.
So, now we are back in Florida. Renee is in group therapy. They discuss anger and how it stems from fear. Renee goes off about how much she hates Carla. The rest of the group is looking at her like, “is this bitch for real?” When she says that Carla is just something that you use and then throw away, it pretty much stops all conversation for a second. Seriously, can anyone else blame Carla for being over Renee at this point? Who talks about a friend of 20 years that way?
The group leader puts Renee in front of the group and tells her to be quiet.
I like him already. He says that she needs to open her mind and listen to the group now. Why can’t her friends talk to her this way? It seems to get much better results than them enabling her misplaced rage.
They lay it out for her. Everyone has people that they are pissed at. But, carrying all of that anger around is a waste of energy that could be used to do better things, regardless of what that person has done to them. The thing is, it doesn’t look like Carla has actually DONE anything to Renee. Renee just needs a target for her rage and Carla is easy because she doesn’t invest in Renee’s DragQueen antics. They basically tell her that she is giving Carla power by holding on to all of this anger at her. And it’s true. I feel like Carla has been winning this season simply because she has stayed so calm while Renee has been screeching to the world about how horrible Carla is.
I’m not sure if it’s a true breakthrough. I mean, Jennifer needs to make that money, so the drama ain’t going away. But, Renee decides that she has to let it go.
Next week, there is a brawl at the Drunken Monkey. CousinSuckUp has to deal with the fact that her daughter wants Aleeya at her birthday party. So, she and Drita have to have a sit down. CousinSuckUp brings up her tired connection to Lefty Two Guns for some reason. Joe tells Carla that he went to see an attorney and immediately gets defensive when Carla says that’s cold. And, Hurricane Sandy is coming.
That’s it for this week Gasmii. Sorry, that this was a little later than anticipated. Today’s my birthday and I over did it last night since I took today off work. So, I had to do a lot of this recap with a bit of a hangover while being waited on hand and foot by my adoring husband.
Anyway, I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the episode. I especially want your take on the Karen/Dave and Drita/Lee situations. So, hit me up in the comments!
