Season 4, Ep 407
by Janine Avril
I’m sorry to say that if I were Bette I would run from Jodi like a bat
out of hell. That woman has too many disclaimers. First, she says she
doesn’t like children and then she admits that the minute she gets
monogamous with someone she gets bored. As a mom who just came out of an
eight year relationship, I would bolt out of there as fast as I could.
Next off, where the hell is Angelica? We haven’t seen her for weeks. And
what happened to Helena’s two children??? Have they disinherited her
because she was disinherited by Grandma Peabody? We’ve heard neither
hide nor hare of them since Helena went broke, and I’m curious to know
if we’re going to see them again and what Helena’s role as a mother is.
I’m glad Helena won her poker game and got to sleep with that dangerous
little vixen of her own volition and not because she owed her fifty
thousand dollars. It was kind of disgusting that all of her friends told
her to do it because, “Everyone is a whore at some point in their life.”
Not exactly. I’ve never been a whore. Neither have most of the people
that I know. Maybe in Hollywood everyone’s been a whore at one point
whether it’s been to score a line of coke or get something out of
I was cringing when Jenny buried Sounder's ashes. I also find it hard to
believe that she already has a new book out. The Season started with the
release of “The Sum of her Parts.” Now suddenly she has a new book, “Lez
Girls” that there are bidding wars over in the film industry. If she is
such a great writer, why can’t she come up with some fictional names for
her reality based characters? Is she trying to make enemies? Based on
how she’s been acting I think she’s going to burn all of her bridges in
Los Angeles and go back to the Midwest crying to her mother.
I still can’t help but feel that Tasha IS one of Alice’s new portals.
Alice has been through a host of lovers since Dana died. The vampire.
Papi the whore. Phyllis the married woman who is twice her age. Now it’s
the black army chick. Any similarities between these women other than
the fact that they are all totally different from one another? I really
like Tasha’s character but I don’t think Alice is the right match for
The ask and tell helicopter was cute. Equally cute was Shay admitting to
his class that his sister was gay.
It was sad for Kit to find out that Angus cheated on her from Tina; at
first that scene through me for a bit of a loop because there was no
previous mention of her and Angus breaking up or even taking some space.
I had to watch it twice to figure out what happened.
My most pressing questions are: what is Phyllis going to do after she
gets over Alice? And why is it that when someone is upset on this show
they start drinking or doing cocaine? Between Shane doing coke when her
life fell apart, Helena nursing a bottle of rum when she lost her
inheritance and Phyllis hitting the bottle now that Alice has no
interest in her, I’m wondering what the message is to the rest of us
about how to handle life.
