Although no one has confirmed to meet for dinner with Elizabeth and Carl, they go to the restaurant and wait for more than an hour for Elizabeth’s family. Sadly no once comes.
But Carl is great and very supportive and Elizabeth gets
kudos for managing to make the best of the situation
and not ruining the night with drama.
It’s the next day and down in Texas, Stephanie is going to show John how they spend a romantic day on a date.
Despite admitting that during her drunk days at the bar she could ride a mechanical bull and make it sexy, she tells us that before bootcamp she never liked cowboys. Not sure what she was doing at those bars then, unless she was hoping bad boy tatt boyfriends like Jesse would come in and start fights. Anyway, the point is, John looks like a cowboy and Stephanie can’t believe how much she is still attracted to him.
Holy shit, this bootcamp is working!
In Atlanta, Danielle is still spinning her wheels. We haven’t met her son yet, but now she’s off to have a chat with her own mom, because her talk with JoAnne and her face to face with Kevin were apparently not enough for her to realize she has to keep going forward with her life.
This is a girl who does not want to hear anything other than what she wants.
Danielle’s mom surprised me. With all the foul language Danielle likes to use, her pierced tongue, willingness to say yes to the penis and dumb it down in her actions and words, I always figured she was just emulating that which she grew up with and knew.
But this classy lady did not teach Danielle how to be ghetto.
Thankfully, Danielle doesn’t like the words her mom is saying, but she recognizes that her mother is the voice of reason. Mom wisely says if Kevin has her in limbo, she should be going out on her date with Corey. It isn’t what Danielle wants to hear, but she’s going to do it.
Aubrey is joining Shalana at her mother’s house to meet her mother and her son Donald.
Sometimes when I look at Shalana, I think she looks like a
drawn Disney princess. Am I the only one?
Cutest freaking kid on the show.
Can I come over and baby sit?
Aubrey meets Donald and things seem to be going well. He brought Donald a gift and they have a super cute moment where they fist bump.
I’m blown away at how tiny Donald’s little fist is.
I get all emotional and misty eyed imagining Aubrey fist bumping Donald through the years and the little guy’s fist growing bigger and bigger as the years go by. Which makes me just as bad as Shalana’s mom who creates an epic awkward moment by saying,
“Donald, you got what you want. You don’t have a real daddy.
Aubrey’s going to step up to the plate and be your step-daddy.”
Rip the needle off the record.
Even Donald recognizes the moment is intensely awkward.
Luckily, Aubrey does a great job of smoothing over mom’s fairy tale promises to Donald by explaining that would be the best scenario that could happen, but at this point there is no knowing where things could go.
