HELLO (AGAIN) KITTY
It was bound to happen. Robin Kassner has returned to the offices of the Millionaire’s Club, pink and all. You may remember her from our New York time: you know the, um, BBW who drank too much and gave a little tickle to a sugar-boy plumber under the table? Well, this time she’s come to LA, equipped with her own rap song (yes, that’s right, RAP song) and a longing for a REAL man.
Patti, Rachel, and I do our recruiting session for Robin (and Rachel’s client, J-date billboard guy Bradley) and meet all sorts of nice young men –- including a stripper who let Patti rub his "slip'n'slide", a superman-wannabe lookalike and a pleasantly plump nice-guy named Joe.
At the mixer, Robin shows up fully made over (no pink, no blonde, no clown make-up) and ready to party.
I really hope you stay away from trying to match plus-sized women in the future. Would you assume that two gay people should be together just because they're gay? Ditto people of color? (Actually, maybe the agency would.) You liked Joe for Robin because he was a plus-sized guy and that's it. Yes, he was a nice guy but you can't force chemistry, and just because they're both overweight doesn't make them a match. Robin doesn't seem to have anything going on upstairs either. Really? You have a degree from Brandeis, are a successful businesswoman and you named your dog - unironically - after Paris Hilton? Talk about arrested development.
Robin is smart, rich, outgoing and pretty. If she would just lose weight, she could have any guy she wants! Maybe Patti and the team should suggest a weight loss regimen for her.
Joe rocks! Hope they hook up down the road! Patti looks phenomenal! Love the show, you all look awesome!
Robin is destined to never find her real JOE. I'm so sad to see that's she's the downfall to herself living in a world of "hello, Kitty denial". Robin "denies" herself the opportunity for REAL love based on the same thing she suffers from in her own personality....love for the OUTSIDE (Hello Kitty, Good-bye Love). Robin will have to get past being superficial and take a good long look at herself and LIKE HERSELF (I guarantee you she does not like herself). It's all an act, it's why she attaches to a cartoon character (rather than rely on her own strength), it's also why she looks for gorgeous men to make herself FEEL better about the way she looks. I think she's very attractive, but ROBIN does not think she's attractive and she's looking to find that part of herself where she can feel attractive by dating someone attractive. Someone please clue Robin in that her way of thinking is NOT going to get her what she is seeking.......if she does not get therapy for what she is suffering from (or a good friend to tell her), Robin may very well die a lonely and unhappy woman.
I have to say it rings a little sexist when Robin is expected to like Joe. I couldn't imagine one of the not so hot male millionaires getting someone comparable to what they look like. I guess if you are a large woman or not that attractive it never gets easier even if you are a millionaire.
I think that if Robin wasn't so stuck on the physical look of a guy she and joe would have been great together. I feel that she will not change and that she only rejected joe because of his physical appearance. Joe was such a gentleman and saved her from total humiliation from being stood up by someone, he didn't have to do that and I think that guys like him are rare and any Girl who throws that away for a guy with abs is ridiculous! A real woman would have at least gave him a real chance. I honestly think that Robin didn't give him one she just went through with the date so she wouldn't piss Patti off! I would totally go on a date with Joe I would love to be treated like a lady and that special.
