Elsawhere, Marysol visits her mom, and it’s awesome. Per usual… Marysol shows up in a floor length evening gown and peignoir for Lisa’a party and Elsa’s all, “You’re going to a payama party in that? Ay Dios mio…” Marysol reveals that the wrap was Elsa’s mom’s and Elsa recalls that yes, it was her mother’s, but then it was given to Marysol, and then the “cot starded sleeping on it. Now it smells like an old cot.” Marysol (me, too) cackles with glee, until Elsa starts fan dancing and revealing that someone gave her alcohol. Marysol puts on her concerned face and asks who gave Elsa the alcohol in question, and Elsa’s all, “Bitch, I ain’t got to tell you shit. I’m OLD.” Elsa gets a little ghetto when she’s drunk. She refuses to sit, cause “when [she] die, [she] gonna be lying down forever,” and says that she could give all the young girls a run for their money, and that’s why Marysol keeps her at home.
Am I wrong to kind of believe her?
At Casa de los PANTIES! Lisa and Lenny are “fighting” about how things aren’t “fine.” According to Lenny, apparently the ICE isn’t there and the VOLUNTEERS aren’t there and the SERVERS aren’t there, and all he can do with his 15 doctorates is pace about it. Lisa’s all, “Is your solution to be an asshole?” and I love her some more, even though this whole thing was totally staged and what’s gonna make the party a failure is the guestlist.
Feet don’t fail me now!
Speaking of which, the party starts and Joanna and Karen’t arrive. Joanna and Romain appear to be playing the happy couple as well as they played the sad couple last episode. THEN Lea arrives with her “a very close friend,” Joe Francis. Can someone PLEASE tell me what these two do together? Where do they lunch? What card games do they play? What books do they discuss? Lisa accurately interviews that Lea’s never met a celebrity she didn’t like or hasn’t been convicted. You know what, it just made sense to me. Lea runs a charity for at-risk youth. Joe Francis produces videos featuring at-risk youth. They must know a lot of the same people.
Joanna learns that Joe’s there, and immediately wants to vomit (not as much as I did earlier, but still), but she, Karen’t and Romain all head over to say “hi” anyway. Joe’s appropriately sleazy with Joanna, “Hi, Baby, how are you” kiss noise, kiss noise. Blech. Joanna asks if he’s still married (SOMEONE MARRIED HIM?), and, shocking, he is not.
It’s time for Marysol to enter in her ancient maybe-fur, and Joanna immediately notices. She just can’t believe Marysol would show up to a party attended by THE animal rights activist Joanna Krupa, wearing fur. Karen’t interviews that they should respect each other’s beliefs and that Marysol wearing such a thing when Joanna was there was in bad taste. I think it’s in bad taste to expect people who barely know you to consider your beliefs when getting dressed for a party that will have 800 people in attendance. I also think that Marysol’s… thingy is marabou or something. Joanna Fail.
