Then it’s time for more deflection. Now Mel wants us to know that she was a teacher during the day, and also going to college. Oh please, that’s what all strippers say. Just working my way through school. Now I will just stand here innocently in a bikini while you throw hundred dollar bills at me.
Ter tries to tel Mel that she loves her and she thinks Mel should go and confront the bald guy and set the record straight. In other words, an invite to go play in the leopard’s den. She presses Mel as to why the sleazy man would be spreading these rumors. “Because he’s an asshole,” is Mel’s casual reply. Um, yeah, no, kind of not cutting it in the explanation department. Mel’s acting skills aren’t much better than her pop star skills.
Inside the party, we overhear oily Angelo telling someone that “Kim and Teresa wanted to blow the whistle on her”. It appears that Jacquee overhears this too. But Jaquee’s got other business going on, namely a mysterious text from “one of mine and Teresa’s mutual friends” saying that something was going down in Housewives-land but that Jacquee was not “the target” and that she shouldn’t leave.
More interruption to tell that you my exhaustive research has shown that this mutual friend of Jacquee and Ter’s was actually a producer on the show, who hated Teresa and orchestrated with Kim D. to make it appear that Ter was in on the ambush all along.
Back in the bathroom, Mel is still pleading her case to Ter. And us. “Do you really think your brother would marry a dancer?” she asks Ter. Um yes, I think Midge Gorga would totally marry a stripper. Dancer. Since when did Midge become so refined? Then she swears on her children. Ooooh, risky. But I guess she swore that she wasn’t a dancer or a stripper and perhaps she wasn’t…but I didn’t hear any sworn declarations of not ever having served drinks in a bikini for work.
Ter says that she never believed it before (another lie), but now she doesn’t know. Ter and her crazy “dialect” call it a “coinky-dink”, but I think we know what she means. Then saintly Teresa explains to Mel that she’s only telling her this because she doesn’t want oily Angelo telling other people. Not like anyone will find out from Ter talking about it on camera, though. Should be safe on that front.
And now Mel’s moved on to saying that she doesn’t care. Lots and lots of explanations for a rumor that you don’t care about, sweetie. Mel asks Ter why she didn’t attack him for saying those things. So you don’t want to attack him for saying this stuff about you, but Ter should do it on your behalf? Although I guess actually, she should. If all that talk of loyalty meant anything to Ter.
