We bounce over to Love’s house. Love and her mother are reminiscing with Karen. Basically, they are bragging about what badasses they used to be as teenagers. They talk about breaking people’s noses, getting into brawls, and setting their parents’ cars on fire. You know, typical teenaged antics. Karen is glad her daughter is nothing like she was as a kid. I’m sure there are plenty of people in this world who are happy about the same exact thing. So, Karen shows some self-awareness for 2 seconds.
Love doesn’t have any kids, and suspects that it might be because she has a pattern of trying to inflict bodily harm and death on her exes. Don’t you just love self-awareness?
Now it’s time to meet up with Big Ang(Yay) and Carla. Ang asks Carla why she wouldn’t come to her botox party. Carla says exactly what we already knew. Without Drita there, she would have been subjected to all kinds of ridiculousness from Renee’s minions and she just didn’t want to deal with it.
And, she says it in that totally Carla fashion that I have grown to love, “Who am I sitting and hanging out with? What, am I gonna be talking to the wall?” That’s three people who have shown self-awareness in a single episode. There may be hope for these bitches, yet.
Ang asks Carla about her beef with Love. And, just as I suspected, Carla has no beef with Love. She has never even met her and doesn’t know her. Carla also talks about Renee’s drug use and how it’s the real issue. Renee isn’t thinking clearly because she is fucked up all of the time. Ang, bless her heart, isn’t going to pile on Renee. She thinks that they need to be supportive. Personally, I think they are enabling Renee by not confronting her about her bullshit head on. But, I do think Big Ang is coming from a goodhearted place.
So, now we have Karen going to see a financial planner straight out of Central Casting.
There is no talk of the salon she supposedly opened with a plastic surgeon last year. And, I don’t think they mentioned her book sales. So, I think the real purpose of this meeting is so that she can brag about the fact that she is letting Dave live in her house rent free so that he can babysit their daughter. The “financial planner” says that Karen needs to learn to say no and that she is way too giving. That’s how I know this is an actor reciting a script. Nothing about Karen says niceness and “too giving.”
But, the mention of Dave living in the house rent free provides the perfect segue to her next scene with Karina. Karina is gorgeous, by the way, and seems to not have been too badly tarnished by her bitch of a mother and pig of a father. Let’s hope is stays that way. Hopefully, Karen is putting some money away for Karina’s therapy after having to discuss her parents’ love life on television.
