Speaking of spiritual cleanings, CousinSuckUp is meeting with a psychic. You see, now that Karen is considering acting like a big girl, and her boyfriend is in prison, and her jewelry is in Texas; CousinSuckUp is in need of a new story line. So, the psychic hands her one by saying that even though her boyfriend loves her, he wants her to feel free to pursue a relationship with someone on the outside. For good measure, the psychic also tells her that she should look into improving the relationship with her father. It’s all a total crock. CousinSuckUp is so worried about being dropped next season that she needs something, anything, to make her relevant. But honestly? Does anyone really care about what future story lines are in store for CousinSuckUp? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
I can’t believe she is going to make up with Drita and leave me with no story line.
Carla and Renee meet for dinner and talk about Joe. Carla tells Renee that Joe has a girlfriend and if his pattern is any indication, this is just the first in a long line. Renee, bless her heart, doesn’t understand why Carla isn’t willing to fight for her man. Really Renee? Maybe Carla doesn’t want to have wine/antidepressant induced breakdown on her kitchen floor while trying to figure out the best way to get a lying cheating rat to be faithful to her.
Anyway, we know that Renee is back to her old self as she tries to stir up a little drama. She wants to know how Carla is going to take it if Drita and Karen actually make up. Carla surprises Renee (but not the rest of us) by saying she is all for it. She wants to be able to be in the same room with both of them and not have to worry about dodging plates and hair pulls.
Drita goes to see her anger management counselor before sitting down with Karen. He hooks her up to a machine that is the equivalent of an emotional lie detector. As she starts talking about Karen and what she wants from the meeting, her anxiety level is off the charts. The counselor agrees with me that the reason Drita is so angry is because she really cares about Karen and the relationship they had. He also wants to know why Drita gives Karen so much power over her that she can get this upset just thinking about her.
You are obviously angry. Please don’t hulk out on me when I give you the bill.
So, Drita and Karen FINALLY sit down. The producers wisely sit them at opposite ends of a fairly long table. Drita says that she is there to move forward and not rehash the past. Karen isn’t having that and brings up Lee and how it wasn’t about him (yeah right). Then she brings up the physical fights they had. She has even brought a note from her doctor to prove that she didn’t go to the hospital after their first fight. Drita denies having ever started that rumor. She asks why she would brag about hurting a friend when she was so ashamed of her behavior that night. And, I know I’m TeamDrita and everything, but come on, she does come across a lot more sincerely than Karen – so I totally believe her.
There will be no table flipping or jumping. And if you throw a wine bottle at me, we are done!
Karen decides that even though she doesn’t believe Drita, she will accept her explanation and move forward. Of course she will. She can’t risk CousinSuckUp being outed as a liar for telling her it was Drita who started it. Plus, she really needs to end the season with some good will considering how disliked she was after last season’s showing. They both call a truce saying that this is about being a good example for their daughters.
