You guys, Jennifer G totally reads my recaps! Remember that rant I went on last week about acting as though the hurricane never happened? Guess what, this week we actually get spliced in footage of the city’s actual state post Sandy. Now, if I could just get her to reconsider CousinSuckUp, things would really start looking up.
In other news, Drita’s stock is starting to plummet for me as not only is she totally taking Lee back, she also wants to support him using her Mob Wives money. Oh, Drita. My how the mighty have fallen. It was definitely an up and down episode for me, so let’s dive in so that you guys can share your thoughts.
We open with Drita and Renee meeting for lunch. Drita is over the moon about Lee being out of jail and at the halfway house. She says that they are like two teenagers in love. Renee, who has no self esteem at all when it comes to men, is totally onboard with Drita taking him back. So what if he cheated and committed felonies? So what if her girls are devastated if things don’t work out? Renee thinks Drita is doing the right thing. I think it’s ridiculous for anyone to take relationship advice from Renee. But, what do I know? I’ve never been in a relationship with a cheating felon before, so I totally have no leg to stand on.
Carla checks in with Big Ang(Yay!) at the Drunken Monkey. She talks about how her meeting with Dumb and Dumber went. She thinks it went well – of course she had yet to see Rokell’s(?) talking head. Ang wants to invite all of the women to her annual holiday party. Carla is hesitant since only Drita and Ang are speaking to her. She is mystified as to why Love would have a problem with her because she has never met the woman. She tells Ang that she can be cordial. She will be uncomfortable because the other women aren’t speaking to her, but she will support Big Ang(Yay!). Ang says that Renee is a completely different person post rehab and doesn’t want anymore drama. I give Ang the side eye as we know there is no such thing as a Drag Queen who hates drama – it’s like a cat mating with a goat – just plain unnatural.
Karen and Love are at the store and Karen talks about how she plans to confront Dave in Arizona. She is still jealous, I mean pissed about Dave’s girlfriend. She thinks he was way too nonchalant about having a girlfriend and I guess she wants to tell him that in person? It makes no sense to me. I mean if she wanted to confront him about introducing Karina to the woman before getting Karen’s approval, I would understand. Even, if she wanted to confront him about Karina’s wish to stay in Arizona, I would get it. But, she seems to be focused on the fact that he didn’t tell her he had a girlfriend. Anyway, Storm (the guy Karen awkwardly flirted with on camera last week), calls and Karen is all giggly and awkward as they make plans for dinner. She is kind of confused about whether or not this is a real date or a business meeting. For someone who pretends to have so much swagger and confidence, Karen is really really bad at dating.
