Put the kids to bed or send them to school, the girls (and boys) are back!
My DVR is getting quite the workout. I have the new DH, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and my Ramsay to watch.
Boom Baby! Couch Potato alert!!!
We open with Bree meeting Andrew’s mother in law to be. Joanna Cassidy is a hoot as a mature unemployed cocktail waitress. Wisteria Lane has been hinting at it’s lower class roots (Edie in the neighborhood, anyone?) and now really blowing the door wide open with Melina and Bree squaring off over holidays. Really, shouldn’t Bree be busy catering on Christmas? This past Christmas it was CRAZY trying to open gifts and make sausage cheese balls, fight the lack of sleep and keep the cat off the tree. Bree should fight for Easter. A better time to connect and celebrate. Plus she would probably make a mean Easter basket and ham dinner.
What’s the deal with Edie and Dave? She needs to tune into WDAS and listen to Michael Baisden. See if this was a true neighborhood, a sister would have pulled her to the side and let her know that Dave was so beneath her. Dave doesn’t seem to work, he has that creepy hair, and secrets. How in the world does she not see that A: Dave is a nut? B: That Dave got some stuff with him? Not knowing he’s on meds? I would have been through his sh*t fo’ five times by now. Game recognizes game and you are unrecognizable Dave. (Shout out to the Mister.)
Bob and Lee! A catfight. Lee should really chill. He stays home all day listening to opera in a kimono. They have a housekeeper and his boo is a lawyer. The problem is what?
Susan is a nosy mother shut your mouth. And how is she selling her friend out for a night on the town? Lee was brilliant when he told her to wear heavy makeup since drag queens gets the first drink free. Susan does resemble a broke down skeleton queen. By the way, I love her boots. As long as the camera pans to her feet, I can tolerate her on screen.
Porter/Preston what an idiot. I can say with absolute clarity that my sister and I would never, never, never have this predicament. Switching places in math class in third grade is one thing, but a possible stretch with Big Bertie as my cellie? No thank you. Best believe that Porter would have his behind back home. All those times that Lynette let her kids terrorize the neighborhood, she should have been raising her kids to have some sense. Now she’s on her way to the poor house while he goes off scared. What a wimp.
Gabby is another PIA. And a selfish wench. Why does she need those gold eff me pumps? She goes to the PTA and drinks coffee with her neighbors. She should really get a job herself so she can feed Juanita, buy all the shoes she wants, and get off of Carlos’ back. Perhaps now that he can see, Carlos can locate his cojones. He was so passionate and fiery then he lost his sight, grew a scraggly beard and gave up his backbone.
McCluskey and Roberta are what, filler? Lily Tomlin is wasted here. The near miss with the HIPPA challenged receptionist is like a blow to the head. Get to the secret already. We know that Dave is after Mike, we know that Dave is a whack job, we know that DH is getting ^^^surrounded by some sharks…
The catering business must be the bomb if Bree can afford to buy the lovers a house.
These women spend so much time scheming, it’s a wonder the Prozac or Alcoholic rate isn’t higher in Fairview.
Gabby is that selfish that she wants Carlos to be miserable in a job he hates? Although if the Mister came home with a job offer for a six figure job with traveling perks, I would be calling Queenie to babysit and cooking him some porkchops and biscuits with a peach cobbler dessert.
I’m on the fence with Lynette. She loves her kids so much that she may be willing to kill for them. But what a disservice she did by not tearing them a new one when they went over the top as little ones. Spare the rod, spoil the child. Fourteen grand is a lot of spoiling.
Gabby is the one who needs to grow up. Two incomes are not a disease. Gabby never says she worked outside of the home, just kept the facade going that they had it together. If you really get down to the truth, Gabby caused Carlos to lose his sight. She divorced him, married Victor, then hooked up with Carlos. Victor found out and it was during the tornado arc that Carlos and Victor tussled and something hit him in the head causing his blindness. So she needs to get off his case and see that life does not begin and end in the mall.
I hope that Lee gets a bigger part on the show. The original housewives are getting a wee stale. Lee could infuse the bitchiness that Dana Delaney had last season when she first moved back to the block.
Finally Edie shows a spark of Edie of past and kicks Dave out. Don’t the DH writers realize that Edie hired a private investigator twice in the past for men she was just shacking up with? For her to just marry Dave at face value…SHENANIGANS.
Mary Alice sums it up by saying that everyone needs a home to go to.
Me, I’m going to the next show.
