Well, before I came here, I went to this salon and the bald guy works there, Ter informs Mel. Mel repeats that she knows she knows him. Did you used to work for him, asks Ter?
“No, I don’t think so,why?” says Mel wide-eyed and calmly. In other words, faking.
And then Ter lowers the boom. She tells Mel that he’s saying she used to work for him at a gentlemen’s club. “I know it’s not true,” she rushes to add, followed by, “So do you know him?”
Okay, let’s interrupt for a minute to point fingers and assign blame. Do I think Ter was in on the initial setup? No, I really don’t. And I also don’t think it was incumbent on her to call Mel and let her know that this slimeball had materialized and was ready to blow up her Jesus junkie act at the Posche fashion show. It’s not Ter’s responsibility to protect Mel from the facts of her past, and hello we are trying to get some decent reality television out of this. But as soon as she told Mel in front of the camera that the guy was exposing her alleged stripper past…she was in on the act.
And back to Mel’s response. She is full of justifications, let’s call them. She was never a dancer, she says exasperatedly. She says she bartended for the guy for a week because her cousin “ran the place”. Not sure what that means. She also clarifies that it’s not a strip club he’s talking about, it’s a “bikini bar”. Not sure what that means either. Then she tells us it would have been stupid for her not to work there, because she was regularly tipped $100 bills.
And it would be stupid of us not to think that it was just a bikini that inspired everyone to slip you hundreds all night.
Another interruption to our regularly scheduled recap – I think she did work for this guy at this bikini bar, and not just as a bartender and not just for a week. According to the blogs, she might have even picked Midge up there. Actually, the blogs have a lot to say about this as do our enthusiastic commenters…I’m just here to report the facts. Well, the facts as I see them. And I really don’t see how dancing at a bikini bar (I don’t even know what a bikini bar is, but oh Lord does it ever sound cheesy) is bad, and I don’t see how stripping (which, according to the blogs, is how Jacquee picked up Chris) is bad either.
So enough of this whole making Mel accountable to her past thing, time to get to the real heart of the matter here and that’s how this is clearly a conspiracy masterminded by Teresa. Ter continues on about how fast her heart is beating, and Mel sarcastically asks her why her heart gets like that over the words of a stranger.
