Oh, and way to go Adriana for speaking up and backing your friend. I guess you only gang up on someone two on one when that someone only smiles in response.
Speaking of bad form (you’re going to read that sentence at least three more times in this recap), it’s time for Lea to roll up. Apparently Elsa likes Lea for some reason (a reason I’m assuming is that she doesn’t know how far up Elaine’s ass Lea is). Marysol’s sharing the same couch and Lea starts talk yelling at her again. She obnoxiously insists that they be friends and that Marysol, is invited to the gala (she brings an actual invitation this time). Marysol calmly explains that she’s still sensitive about the Felipe situation, so Lea’s Green Card comment was really out of line. Lea interviews that Marysol is overreacting and I roll my eyes some more. Lea physically cannot apologize, so she needs to invalidate anyone else’s feelings of offense. According to her, only in Iowa would such a joke be offensive, not in Miami where everyone needs a Green Card, and certainly not on NATIONAL TELEVISION. God, what a colossally stupid woman.
When Marysol doesn’t really fight back, Lea takes that as a sign of forgiveness and starts yelling at Marysol to stop being sad about her failed marriage RIGHT NOW. Clearly if Marysol’s dating someone, she’s over it. I repeat, what a colossally stupid woman. Over it, Marysol moves across the couch, and Lea just cackles some more, willfully ignorant of her heinous behavior. If I could be as entertained by myself as Lea is with her horribly insensitive “humor,” I’d never watch TV again. Marysol interviews that Lea is painful, but then she says that Lea’s conversation is like, “evil words wrapped in a riddle of jest.” Clearly I have overestimated Marysol’s command of the English language. And so has she. That exchange ending in détente for the moment, Karent shows up. She could not have received a less enthusiastic, “Hiiiiii Karent,” from everyone at the table. Before she can alienate everyone once more with her massive, massive grill, Adriana whisks her away for a talk. Wood shed, meet Karent. Karent, meet wood shed.
In a refreshingly strategic move, Karent calls out Adriana before the other woman can even get started. That’s a chess/war/negotiation strategy, right? Throw your opponent off guard by attacking first? Nice work, Karent. I’m throwing some love your way early because you’re about to get am-to-the-BUSHED. Anywho, Karent tells Adriana that next time this Gallery Girl has a problem, she should feel free to confront Karent about it in person immediately. Adriana protests that she is doing just that, but Karent rightly points out that Adriana did a whole lotta talking before any confronting. Karent’s right, and Adriana knows it, so she points out that that’s a discussion for another day. You gotta get up pretty early to nail Adriana, it would seem.
Not to tweet beat her, though.
