Carlton says "f--- perfection" and what she really thinks of Joyce's husband (she says the word "tool" comes to mind).

F--- perfection! I am perfectly flawed.

I think I am one of the few blessed ones that genuinely has an amazing relationship with my mother-in-law -- which is why I rarely use the term in-law since it has been long associated with not so pleasant memories for most. I don't look at my husbands family that way. I was an only child, and I walked into this large Sicilian family and everything was really loud. Other than my incredible grandfather, there were no real men in my life. So when I met David's father it was inspiring. Now, I have two brothers that I have chased around the office and job site swinging at, two beautiful sisters that I would kick arse for, the most kind hearted and beautiful nieces and nephews. My relationship with my mum is honest. She knows me and loves me for me. We of course don't always agree on everything, but we smile and then drop it. And most importantly she knows in the deepest of my soul I have a husband who is honestly the best thing that has ever happened to me. He's my destiny. I drive him f---ing crazy but in the end he knows I would die for him. Seriously I would lie myself down for this man!

My mum was up front and center with all three births of our children, so walking into Hustler with my mum-in-law and hubby isn't really all that odd for us. We definitely got the giggles with some of the items and a little confused by others. I swear some required a map. But Hustler today is a high end store, nothing that lurks in the shadows. They have great bikinis and lingerie, and especially towards Halloween they have the best costumes. This place is a Hollywood landmark. It’'s run by Larry Flynt’s daughter -- that to me is so cool -- and she has a very clear vision.
