Kiki to the Rescue
Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor dishes on all the baby mama drama from Episode 2.
So yes, this show is about babies, but I had to start this recap with The Kiki Twins. I myself was a bit confused as to what "kiki" might be (other than a name I haven't heard in quite some time), so like any good website editor I hit the internet for clues. The most likely definition in light of the "Step Touch" performance went as follows, "Kiki is also a verb, like to party or to get overly excited catching up with your girlfriends." I for one was definitely over excited when the fashion fraternal twins hit the stage for Tanya's baby shower. The other guests were, well, maybe not over excited, but I'd say at least mildly amused. Really though, what is an appropriate act to book for a baby shower?
Which brings us to Tanya's assistant, Dan. How cute was that fabulous, little, rosy-cheeked guy? After what turned into a pride parade of questionable candidates during the search for a "fun, gay assistant," he was truly the light at the end of the rainbow tunnel. Although it would have been great to see the candidate who did the runway walk vogue his way through all of the errands for Tanya's party.
And poor Dan just couldn't catch a break. I really felt for him as he ran around the Upper East Side sporting turquoise skinny jeans, suspenders, and a white buttondown with a popped collar while holding a hundred ballons, a flower arrangement, and a cakebox. And of course doing all of this while fielding Tanya's unrelenting phone calls. Thank goodness Rosie knows her way around both cakes and babies, because I thought Dan would have become even redder if they hadn't been able to fix the cake icing crisis. At the end of the day, everyone was happy, so well done Team Rosie Pope!
But before all of this we had Ali and Adam and a great deal of awkward conversations about sex. Between questions about masturbation habits, dildos, and "forcing" yourself to have sex with someone, it was just a bit difficult to watch at times. But thanks to Rosie putting Adam in his place with a pregnancy suit and setting up an intimate "babymoon" for the couple, they were able to reconnect on an intimate level.
However, Ali's funniest moment was certainly when Rosie rushed them off to the hospital once she started having contractions. Ali remained completely calm the whole time, which was completely baffling to Rosie. It looked more like Ali was maybe a little overheated or had some minor cramps, not like she was about to give birth! She must have the pain threshold of a seasoned marine.
Next week it looks like Rosie has a royal pain on her hands when her new client want to ask a British Lord to be her child's godfather. Scones and spotted dick will be required.
