Over to Bill, an accountant. Kristin and Lil’ Drunky are meeting with him to discuss Kristin formally setting up her nanny referral business. Drunky shares that she has a business degree (?!?) but that Kristin isn’t using her training, she just brought Drunky along for support. Bill sagely observes that “a business where you charge a fee and get paid is a great business”. Why thanks for those words of wisdom, Mr. Buffett!
Bill then proceeds to discuss the different kinds of corporations. Kristin doesn’t bother to stop Bill and ask for any explanation. It’s obvious she doesn’t have any idea what he’s talking about, and she hasn’t done any prior research on setting up a business. Even when Bill enumerates various items she’s doing to need (business license, insurance, etc.) Kristin just sits there. Meanwhile, it’s also obvious that Drunky knows exactly what Bill is talking about. But no one is asking her for assistance or advice, since Kristin sees herself as so superior to Drunky.
Holding a pen makes me look smart.
Bill then comments that if anything goes wrong with one of the nannies, Kristin (well, her company anyway) will be sued. Alarmed, Kristin shares she’s afraid Amber will get her in trouble. Or any one of the other numbskulls you “place”.
Also, why the hell can’t she use concealer?
We return to the Faulks, where Justin is getting a swimming lesson from a dishy instructor, Marcus. Justin is still resistant, and Lindsay points out he needs to swim to be able to save the kids he’s minding from drowning. Duh!
Over at Lucy’s house, where she, Kristin and Amanda are having “brekkie” (Lucy’s term). Lucy says she has a guy for Amanda to meet, a firefighter. Princess Kristin condescendingly says that she wants to be sure Lucy is “taken care of” and wants her “to be able to be a mom and stay home with the kids”. Apparently Lucy’s boyfriend, Curtis is a lowly electrician – in Orange County of all places. (The horror!) The firefighter, Matt, is Curtis’ friend. Amanda says she envisions firefighters as wearing overalls and a hat, with no shirt. That’s not a firefighter, dear, that’s a Chippendale. Kristin shares that Amanda is looking for “fiery, passionate” new experiences. I think she just wants to cop a feel.
Back to Justin, who’s certainly enjoying his lesson, although he fails his “pick up the rock” test (to see how quickly he can get into the pool and rescue a child). He comes back to the surface without the rock. So . . . kid dying is no big deal. Aces!
If I pretend to drown, Marcus will have to give me mouth-to-mouth!
We’re now with Amber, whose car has been repossessed, so she’s renting a Dodge. She’s meeting Ari for lunch, and we gather Amber hasn’t worked for Ari since the wedding. After sharing her repo sob story, Amber asks Ari what’s going on. Ari says she sent an email, which Amber says she didn’t receive. Probably her computer was repod too. . .
