Joanna calls to invite Lisa to the tenth anniversary of Mynt, with its useless myspelled name, and Lisa suggests that all the girls come over for sushi and pregaming beforehand. Because Lisa thinks it’s funny when other people vomit. Commercial!
Now it’s time to meet Lea’s Daysy, Freda. If possible, this segment is even weirder than the last. Freda is Lea’s housekeeper, and looks to be about mid-sixties. Lea heads up to her house to
jack up do her hair, and then R.J. arrives and the everyone heads down the pool so he can teach Freda to swim and Lea can watch. Freda wears a t-shirt and slacks, and R.J. wears a something similar in blue. Freda manages to complete a dog paddle thanks to R.J.’s instructions, en espanol, and after the lesson is over, the two frolic in the pool as Lea interviews that Freda has two maids and a driver.
There’s no joke here, that’s just what happened.
Sidenote – who else is enjoying the fact that Lea and Lisa are the same person 20 years apart, and their total and willful denial of said fact? Okaaaay, 40 years apart.
With that weird look into the lives of live-in help in Miami, we’re off to Marysol. She’s being profiled by Ocean Drive Magazine because the tenth anniversary of her company is coming up, and she’s all accomplished and whatnot. She takes a meeting with a rep from Renaissance Hotels or something and they discuss a gala that she’s going to PR for. She interviews that she primarily does work with luxury brands and there aren’t many she doesn’t have a relationship with. Damn, I am leaving prepositions hanging all OVER the place, aren’t I? Marysol’s got her shit together, yo. It’s wrong that I’m bored, huh?
My brain is proud of you, but my heart wants to see you get drunk and fall down.
Thankfully Marysol’s Take Your Editor to Work Day is cut short, and we return to Romain and Joanna. He drives his Porsche to take his citizenship test (like a BOSS), and he passes! I gotta say, Gasmii, this segment made me fall in LOVE with this man. He comes out of the… citizenship station(?) waving a tiny American flag and jumping up and down like a little kid. Seriously, dude could not be more excited. I really don’t wanna be there when he realizes that the only other people who are as proud to be an American as he is probably don’t want him here stealing their jobs.
I kid because I love.
Joanna interviews that Romain came here with nothing, much like her, and has managed to achieve a great deal in the time leading up to his citizenship. Aww, she’s proud of her man. She does wet blanket him a little bit when she tells him that now that he’s a citizen, he can’t speed with her in the car. He counters gleefully that he can’t get deported anymore, so anything goes! He says something to that affect a little later and I feel like someone needs to tell him that becoming an American citizen doesn’t mean you get a free pass to break laws… Your ass will get deported to JAIL. Seriously, though? How cute was he speed demon-ing up the freeway waving his tiny little American flag? Congratulations, Romain. I’m sure this was not an easy journey. Also, I apologize for assuming you were Latin, when, in fact, you are from France.
