I tried to come up with some pithy opening for this episode, but that just didn’t happen. Renee’s drama is trying my patience, Gasmii. Hopefully, her stint in rehab will help bring back the fun drag queen that we all know and love. In the meantime, let’s get to it.
We start right off with the letter. Basically, Junior warns Renee not to turn their son against him. I know there was a lot of build up and this was supposed to be ominous and everything, but it really sounded like the kind of letter that divorcing parents send to each other through lawyers all the time.
But, since this is Renee and Drag Queens are drawn to drama and shiny things, this letter is now rife with threats and rage and she needs someone to talk to about it. Since all of her friends are screening their calls from the insane woman who lives for drama, she heads out to find someone to talk to. I should mention that she does this after downing a bunch of wine so that the drama can stay fresh in her mind as she stalks her friends and risks a DUI.
She finally tracks down CousinSuckUp at the beauty salon. Wait, this bitch can’t afford her rent and has to move her five kids into a 2 bedroom apartment, but she can afford to get blow outs? Well, I guess she has to keep up appearances if she is going to attract some idiot who is dumb enough to support her and her kids. It’s called priorities, people.
Anyway, Renee and CousinSuckUp discuss Junior’s “threat,” and being a genius, CousinSuckUp wonders why this letter even made it to Renee, as the Feds are supposed to be monitoring his mail. I’m not sure if this type of letter really constitutes enough of a threat for the Feds to confiscate it. I mean, it’s only episode 3 and I’ve seen Renee threaten Carla’s life, Carla waving a knife around while arguing with Renee, Karen threatening to put Carla in the trunk of her car and terrorize her family, and Love admitting to several felonies on national television. So, having her ex warn her not to turn their son against them, just doesn’t make me feel all that nervous about anything that Junior could actually do to Renee.
But, Renee is sure that this letter means that Junior is going to kill her – which is stupid. Why would he kill her when he is still in prison and their son has to have someone to live with? At the very least, he would have to wait until he was on the outside and had a place to live that wasn’t a halfway house. Plus, Junior was totally the type of husband that needed a wife to make plans for him. At the very least, he would need Renee to plan the hit or at least have one of his girlfriends ask Renee how to go about planning a hit. So, I am having a hard time taking any of this seriously.
