S6E4 “A Hairy Situation”
Last week, while shopping with the twins, Melissa retaliated against Amber (whose husband talked smack about Juicy) by telling them that Amber said that Nicole may be a home wrecker. Way to rekindle that friendship Melissa. Anyway, Nicole and Teresa A. decided to forgo ambushing Amber immediately and wait for Nicole’s boyfriend’s first responder party. Is that really the best time and/or place?
This week begins with Melissa and Joe arguing over some new damage to her Bentley. Melissa thinks that Joe has jinxed her by calling her a bad driver. Last year they spent over $100,000 at the body shop. Joe is upset because Melissa doesn’t understand their money issues. Maybe she shouldn’t be driving a Bentley if they’re in such trouble? The conversation turns to guys’ night. Melissa tells Joe the real reason that Jim didn’t come – Juicy’s legal issues. Joe recalls that they isn’t exactly the way that Bobby put it. Melissa thinks that Jim feels too good for them. Joe decides to talk to him at Bobby’s party. They also decide to tell Teresa what was said so that she can decide whether to attend. Dina is cleaning out her closet. She’s going to donate all of the things that she doesn’t wear. Her closet is the only thing that’s organized in her life. She may not have gotten her dream house but she did get her dream closet, which holds 400 pairs of shoes. Dina is having a hard time letting go of her husband… and her shoes. She isn’t ready to date because she has a guard up, but she still has “needs.”Teresa, Melissa, and the twins are costume shopping for the first responder party. They need firegirl, cop, etc. costumes. Nicole says that a first responder is per-fect because Bobby is a fireman! Melissa tries on a sailor costume. Thank goodness the ladies inform her that a sailor isn’t a first responder. The twins fill Melissa and Teresa in on the Amber situation. Melissa thinks that Amber has changed in the last ten years. Nicole is still very angry that Amber would tell such a massive lie about her, when they are supposed to be friends. Amber and her husband are coming to the party, which shocks Melissa. Melissa tells Teresa that Jim didn’t come to boys’ night because he doesn’t want to be around Juicy. Teresa wishes that everyone would mind their own business. I am surprisingly not annoyed by Teresa this season – she seems to have chilled out a little. I am a little annoyed that Melissa is stirring the pot already.
At home, Teresa is making ice cream for the girls. She’s trying to teach Milania to use an indoor voice – good luck! Teresa admits that she has calmed down since season 1 (table flip) and season 2 (throwing Andy), and says that she hopes to teach her girls that yelling and physical altercations don’t solve anything. When Juicy arrives, they unveil the family portrait. Teresa wants the girls to know that family is the most important thing. She wants her girls to continue their family traditions as they grow up.
Amber’s family is shooting their commercial. Jim is running the shoot like it’s not a family shoot. He says that he doesn’t love what he does, but it supports his family. Way to teach your kids that money is more important than happiness. Michael, their son, is the director for the shoot, but Jim is micro-managing from the background. Feel free to fast-forward through that scene.
Nicole arrives at Dina’s. Nicole loves the décor, but Dina says that she prefers clean lines now. They talk men. Nicole says that sometimes the spark is gone with Bobby. No good if you’ve only been together for a few months. She’s excited to see Bobby throw a party. She is very hyper and Bobby is pretty chill. Nicole wants to set Dina up with a cute fireman, but Dina isn’t ready because Venus is in retrograde. I think Dina isn’t ready to give up her lifestyle with Tommy.
It’s the night of the party. Bobby is hosting the party at Nicole’s house. He isn’t hoping to raise money, but he wants to raise awareness. Matt, the cute fireman, is coming. Nicole admits that Dina may not be pleased, but she wants Dina to start getting out there. Bobby doesn’t want to get caught in the middle of Amber and Nicole’s drama because he’s been friends with Jim for twelve years. Dina is trying to get ready for the party. She feels that when girls hear “costume party,” they think “dress like a slut.” Melissa is a SWAT girl, Joe is a fireman, Teresa is a nurse, and Juicy didn’t dress up. He later says that he’s a detective. They discuss Jim’s issues with Juicy. Joe is pissed that Jim is kicking Juicy when he’s down. The old Juicy is back! There’s some drunk cursing and slurring in the limo. They joke that Jim will probably come as a lawyer because he’s so uptight. At Amber’s, we learn that Jim actually did want to come as a lawyer. Because lawyers are first responders? He also thinks Amber’s outfit is a little too sexy.The party begins in the kitchen, where everyone congregates for drinks. The cute fireman arrives and he is pretty cute. We’ll see what Dina thinks. The party moves downstairs. Dina arrives dressed in scrubs. Teresa A. thinks that Dina should have come costume shopping with them. They immediately drag Matt over to meet Dina. She is a little standoffish and surprised to have a man thrown at her while she’s in scrubs. She asks what Nicole was thinking. She requests that Nicole respect her wishes to not be set up. Kathy and Rosie arrive. Rosie is a sniper, so she doesn’t need a costume. Kathy didn’t really dress up, but she brought cannoli’s.
Tt care. He says that Jim may be too good to shake his hand. Nicole tells all of the ladies what Amber has been saying. Rosie suggests that Nicole confront Amber.
Amber and Jim arrive! Bobby greets them warmly. Amber and Jim immediately introduce themselves to Juicy, but Jim says that he tries to stay away from people who get into trouble. He tells a story about wanting to be a blood-sucking attorney, but Amber wouldn’t let him. My take on Jim: he’s miserable in his life, working with federal prosecutors but not really being one of them, so he has to put down everyone around him to make himself look better. I’m over him. Juicy has his number already.Amber greets Teresa A., who isn’t very warm to Amber. She goes to get Nicole so that they can settle the issues. Teresa A. refuses to play nice until Amber apologizes. Amber asks what’s going on and Nicole points out that it all started with Melissa. Yes! Way to call her out! Nicole tells Amber that she is owed an apology for what Amber said to Melissa. Amber tells Nicole, Teresa A., and Melissa, “the two of you and you, let’s go!” Umm, these aren’t your kids that you can order around. Amber refuses to talk in a group. She’s really the one causing the scene though. Somehow Nicole and Amber end up locked together, pulling on each other’s hair. Amber screams that Bobby won’t marry Nicole because she behaves like this at his house! At any rate, there’s screaming and glass throwing. I feel like all of this has been done before and these ladies aren’t giving me anything new. I also don’t know them well enough to really care one way or the other. Cute Matt and Jim break the fight up. Amber is drug out of the room yelling. Jim has a hunk of her hair in his hand – flashback to Ashley/Ashlee/whoever and Danielle. Amber leaves the party yelling at Melissa, “I hope you’re happy.” She denies saying that Nicole broke up a family, but we all heard it. And in case you didn’t, Bravo shows it again. Melissa is shocked that they couldn’t just have a conversation.
Amber enters the kitchen, where Joe and Bobby are talking, screaming about Nicole. Bobby stays calm. He can’t believe that it got that heated in such a short time. Jim tells Bobby to get Nicole under control. Amber says that it went straight to physical, but Nicole says that Amber started it. Joe has remained calm, until Amber begins talking about Melissa. He tells Jim to stop his wife. Rino comes upstairs and confronts Jim. He doesn’t trust Jim. Rino goes right into it, bringing up Jim’s hesitance to be around Juicy. He accuses Jim of thinking he’s a big-shot attorney, and too good for them. Jim is pissed that Bobby told the guys what he said about Juicy. Jim says that he isn’t an attorney, though he passed the bar. Joe asks why he didn’t come out for guys’ night. He leans down into Joe’s ear and says that he works with the attorney general that is prosecuting Juicy. He says that he prosecutes mortgage fraud. Actually, he’s a loan officer, not an attorney. He needs to get over himself. In conclusion, I was proud to see Juicy sitting calmly through all of the melee.
