We open at Lea’s house and Elsa is here! The two continue with their very uncomfortable relationship, sipping wine and discussing Marysol and Elaine. As far as Elaine goes, what begins as a reasonable discussion ends in an explanation of what a drag queen is for Elsa’s benefit, and as far as Marysol goes, despite what Lea says about Marysol’s employees handling the banquet badly, Elsa thinks both women should sit down and resolve the B.S. Because, as we’ve seen last episode, that is something that works. I do give Lea credit for describing Elsa as a person who is, “What you see is what you get.” I cannot think of someone less so, given that Elsa is the smartest person on this show, but with plastic surgery that makes me saaaaad.
In a nearby high rise, Joanna is beating her fiancé at Tetris and the problems in their relationship are all the more clear – Ladies, if you emasculate your man at video games, he’ll find someone who won’t… In other news, Marta moves back in, and it’s as if this retarded trio predicted the election. We all took a pause to reevaluate, and it turns out everyone wanted everything the same as it was before, however dysfunctional.
Joanna and Marta head off to a shoe fashion show, which happens to be my worst nightmare considering I hate feet and I imagine they’ll be prominently featured.
At said fashion show, EVERYONE is there, including Lauren Foster, my new idol. She’s an actual transgendered personality who doesn’t give a fuck. And I think that she might be the coolest person on the planet.
Joanna and Adriana kiss cheeks like neither one of them hates herpes, but we all know better. I’m sure there’s canned footage of both of them running to the bathroom to swab their respective cheeks with anitbactierial wipes. The editors felt the need to air footage of Joanna interviewing about how she doesn’t “trust” Adriana after the “physical fight” they had, and shit, I wouldn’t either. Do y’all hang out with bitches who get violent after a few drinks? No? I didn’t think so.
The party goes on without a hitch until Elaine gets there. Well, not really. It doesn’t get good until Lauren Foster starts talking about how horrible Elaine gets, and she does it with such aplomb that I can’t believe she doesn’t have her own show, yet. Unfortunately, she doesn’t, and we all have to be subjected to the following, which is Elaine hopping on Marysol’s back like a howler monkey on steroids. Elaine tells Lea and anyone else who will listen that Marysol has (YET AGAIN) been spreading lies and telling people not to hire him. He squawks that Marysol told Lisa Pliner (hostess/designer/trophy wife) not to hire James. When Lisa P. is questioned, she says that Marysol did express confusion as to why Lisa would hire James for such a show, pointing out that James would charge. It could be a sabotage, but it could also be two people talking about a host. In any case, it’s enough to send James into a goddamn tizzy and confront Marysol about the whole thing at the party.
