I must be psychic, because Lana invites Jennifer over to pull back the layers of her mental onion. Jen is complaining to Lana about the difficulties of work-life balance. First, you think billionaire, monkey-owning Lana ever has to worry about work-life balance? Second, maybe if you need time with your husband, go to dinner with him instead of playing pool at the house of a woman you barely know?
Lana and her husband once almost got divorced. They have been married 21 years. Lana brags that Victor had to chase after her.
Jennifer is so drained by poker that she and Marco never have sex. She chooses sleep. Which honestly doesn’t surprise me, because she reminds me in a lot of ways of Melissa Etheridge. If you catch my meaning. Lana makes the point that Jennifer is crazy and sex is important. And if Lana thinks you’re crazy, well…
Jennifer tells Lana about the upcoming cocktail party, Confrontation 2012. Lana catches on to the subtext. She informs Jennifer she won’t back down.
Amy’s medium, Tim, is coming by to check out the spooky-wookies. Amy made sure to give him no personal details whatsoever, to verify that he’s the real deal. So dumb. Seriously. All you have to do is find her company on linkedin to figure out who she is. Lori comes by to provide support. This is making me so frustrated, guys. The medium frets around about how heavy the air in the basement is, but only after Amy’s entire demeanor changes and she twitters on and on about how nervous she is. He does a shitty acting job about how heavy the energy is there, because it’s a spirit portal. Gag.
By the way, guys – Penn & Teller are awesome. If you’re in Vegas, go see their show at the Rio. And their whole career, they’ve done everything they can to debunk psychics and mediums. http://youtu.be/mJP_l1OK8NM
So Tim is telling Amy everything she wants to hear. She fake-cries about all the hurt her father caused others, and Tim communicates an apology from her father. Lori is freaked. So she’s dumb, too. Amy’s a mess. Her face is red, makeup everywhere, and her sweater and fishnets (classy) both have holes in them.
Jennifer and Marco go out to dinner. She’s happy to be reestablishing a connection with her husband, but immediately she breaks it to us that it’s not like she’s going to start enjoying sex with him, or anything. Marco flirts with the waiter a bit, and oh man, he really is good-looking. His eyes sparkle. And why is it that I start finding a man attractive as soon as I see him flirting with another man? Jennifer guilt-rambles about missing time with the kids, and do they miss her, because she misses them. He just gives her a blank look and shakes a little. I think maybe he’s not too upset that she spends so much time away.
Marco suggests they get a hotel room across the street and she literally laughs at him. (And when she laughs, it occurs to me that she looks like the annoying blond chick from 7th Heaven.) They discuss anniversary plans, and Marco says he wants to renew their vows, officiated by an Elvis impersonator. I think it’s really sweet, until he says that he needs to be drunk to do it and BTW it’s necessary because the first time they got married, he was bluffing. LOLZ. Jennifer left out that part when she was telling the story to Amy.
