Actually, Despina says that all the men she has ever had a relationship with just disappeared without a word or an explanation. I think she’s confusing herself with her victims.
Donna goes for the parts that make the towels smelly as she remembers
the man who never followed through on his vow to marry her.
Elizabeth is shaking and seems to be close to cracking. She can barely bring herself to talk about Paul, the “love of her life” who she gave her family up for. I’m a little confused why her family would make her choose between a man who gives her rings and spoils her when that is exactly what they taught her was a sign of true love. Anyway, she talks about how she thought he was the one and that they would be married and live happily ever after in a crystal palace of roses and veal cut into bite-sized pieces, but she breaks down as she remembers that while waiting for his divorce to be finalized, he took back all the bling he had given her and she went nuts. Her attempts to retrieve the rings (a symbol of love and devotion for her) resulted in her being arrested!
Apparently this is not the first time Liz has donned the black and white stripes.
My poor Elizabeth. What a mess she is. She can’t bear to touch the voodoo doll – she just doesn’t have it in her heart to stab crappy people who have done her wrong. She has no self confidence, she lives to please people, she’s never been treated to the sensual explosion of an orgasm and she can’t let go of a desire to win her parent’s approval. Where does one start helping such a broke down girl re-build herself?
And why has no one told this beauty to stop shellacking her face too?
Steve tells the girls he knows it is hard to have to re-live the pain of their ex’s but he chose them for boot camp because he believes they can handle it and he wants them to be able to get over these feelings so they can truly move on. With that, he invites them outside to see a New Orleans Funeral procession which is comprised of an awesome jazz band blowing out dirges with funk and emotion.
As the girls listen to the music and try to recover from their emotional trip down memory lane, Steve is cooking up another surprise to keep them off balance. He’s about to deliver their exes in person!
Stephanie’s ex Jessie arrives first.
For Christ’s sake, he has scumbag written all over him!
Apparently, this winner and Steph have been on and off for years and he ran like a bat out of hell when she was high on crack and asked him for a committed relationship. She had to be high on crack – why the hell would such a sweet girl want such a gross douche?
I’m pretty sure this is how she always looked when dating Jessie.
The lemon tree is a metaphor, Stephanie.
Instead of telling Steph how lovely she looks with her toned down (nearly) natural appearance, prize boy starts in on how she shouldn’t compromise her look for other people’s opinion. She looks like she’s buying into his attempts to get her right back to the insecure place that made her think his level of schmuck was her league.
Guess who is here for Danielle.
Kevin looks like he might be a bad ass.
