Let’s start on a light note. Toward the top of the episode we see Lilly at dinner with one of her nearest and dearest, Raumak. We learn that their friendship runs VERY deep - they bonded over hair extensions. At dinner Lilly vents about Ali, her on-again/ off-again boyfriend of 10 years. Lilly wants Ali to move to LA so that they can be together, but the Persian Houstonian is dragging his feet. But don’t let her high fashion, pretentious exterior fool you. Lilly is a simple girl at heart. All she really wants is “to come home to somebody else’s face that she can touch, hug and kiss” … along with a Maserati, a phat house in the hills, a yacht…and Eva Longoria’s stylist for her dog. No joke, we learn that Coconut’s groomer is a stylist to the stars! Well, maybe not after this episode airs. I’m sure that Eva just loves the idea that those fingers running through her silky locks are the same that scrub the pooch’s poop chute!
Skipping ahead. . .We finally get to see pictures of the infamous Ali this episode. OMG. Is he her boyfriend or her uncle?! Did you catch when she said “on, off, single, married?” I need to pull an MJ and cyber stalk, I mean investigate this further. She needs to shake that guy! Lilly, I have to say, ”he’s just not that into you!” If he wanted to be with you, he would have gotten his ass on a flying Persian rug and flown straight to LA. Or least hit the “on” button on his laptop to do a simple Google search for houses in L.A. I love when Ali said, “I love you, I want to buy a ring for you, I want to spend my life with you…” From 1500 miles away?
Listen, I know it’s not as black and white as the show makes it look, but it looks like our swimgerie guru needs to start looking at ships coming from the old country for a new dude. Don’t like your current man? Import a new one! I feel bad for her, but girlfriend needs to move on!! Maybe she should throw herself a B.Y.O.B. (bring your own boy) party just like MJ!
Speaking of, how about the chain of events that lead up to MJ’s birthday?!?
