Amber finally gets in contact with Gary’s mom and she was supposed to drop Leah off at a certain time today. Of course, she didn’t show up on time, which only causes Amber to start to unravel. Gary’s mom treats her like Gary would in this situation – “what’s wrong??” Amber sits down Big Momma to talk about this lack of communication. Amber is quite calm for any normal person, let alone Amber. She tells Momma that she went by the house and they weren’t there. Momma says they were out of town. Why didn’t this information get shared with Amber? Why is that a valid excuse? So, Momma says, “Why didn’t you call my cell phone?” “I did,” says Amber, “You never answered.” “Oh, well I don’t have your new number! There ya’ go!” No, Big Momma, that’s no excuse. You’re just a bitch and that’s the reason your son is such a massive turd. And I do mean massive. Amber tells her she has her number now, so she needs to be sure to answer the phone when she calls if she has Leah with her. Big Momma tries to alligator arm the whole situation and say it’s between Amber and Gary, but that’s a load. She’s involved, because she’s involved herself by letting Gary high-tail it out of town every other day and leave Leah with her. You can’t do a shit job of raising your own son and then turn around and act like you have nothing to do with it, while you continue to coddle and enable him.
Debra shows up to babysit Sophia while Farrah goes out Austin with Nice Guy Dan, despite the fact that Farrah and Ashley find her to be abusive and horrid. Farrah has planned a dinner for Debra and Dan to meet. While they wait, Sophia needs to go poop. Debra scolds her for pooping in her pants…but then says, “Big girls do not pee-pee and poo-poo in their diaper.” Eeerrrr!! Wait. Back up. She’s wearing a diaper, but is expected to NOT go potty in it? How about putting some panties on her if you want her to use the potty instead of her pants? If I could wear a diaper, I’d never get up off my ass. I’d wait until my husband came home, lie down on the bed, and tell him it’s time to change Ma-Ma. I’d also get a lot more sleep. My bladder just hasn’t been the same since pregnancy.
Cate stops by to see April and talk about the trial. Cate wants April to take this Butchless opportunity to better herself. It seems as though Butch was not at all being supportive of April’s attempts to stop drinking. She’s going to start going to AA and Cate offers to attend meetings with her. All during their conversation, Butch blows up April’s phone. Good for April. It’s always nice to see an alcoholic take that first step – admitting they’re an alcoholic. Sometimes that’s the hardest step.
The next step is to get some bangs.
