Ignoring the fact that it makes absolutely zero sense to invite four women you barely know to what Amy describes as a small event with a lot of her mom’s friends (unless of course TLC is footing the bill), I would have to agree that the Lana-Alicia drama is likely to cause some commotion. Amy says if everyone is good and they check their bullshit at the door, she’ll be fine. If they cross the line of respect and start shit, she may not be so fine. Plan on the latter, my dear.
Yay Jen’s going to a poker game! I love love LOVE me some poker and I especially love chicks who play poker so I’m happy TLC is showing us more of Jen’s work life. Jen valets at the Golden Nugget and sits down at a high-stakes game with a bunch of famous poker players:
Jen walks up with two racks of black chips – that’s TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. She interviews that playing poker is very grueling. You have to be on your game 100% of the time every single time you play. She says that winning 60% of the time is enough to maintain her lifestyle, but that means she’s still losing 40% of the time and it SUCKS to lose. Knowing how much it sucks to lose when you buy in for $200, I really just can’t put into words how awful it must be to lose when you’ve bought in for 100 times that.
Jen is not having a good night, at one point saying “I’m getting slaughtered.” She interviews that she always dreads telling Marco that she lost. That seems really unfair. I mean, imagine if out of a five-day work week, two of those days you got home and told your hubby how work went and he got pissed. If you both already know going into it that Tuesdays and Wednesdays are going to be bad but the paychecks will still keep coming, why get mad about it?
Jen cashes out and heads to meet Marco for a bite to eat while interviewing that when she loses, Marco gets very upset because it means less money for the bills, the kids, etc. She says it’s very unsettling and it always ends up affecting their relationship. I can’t believe they’ve stayed together for I think it’s 11 years now if this even an issue, but we don’t get to see Jen break the news just yet…
Because after a commercial, we’re “treated” (someone shoot me) to watching Alicia have her hair and makeup done straight-up Toddlers & Tiaras-style. Her best friend Tricia is there too, with Sparkle on her lap. The dog. We’re not at a strip club people; we’re in a salon of some sort. Oh wait – it looks like it’s Alicia’s living room.
