Kim G. Hmmm, what can I say? As I watch I have to admit that I’m a little disappointed. I need to see how this plays out, but all I'll say for now is that it's interesting, very interesting. Many of you ask if the boys' friendship has suffered. No, it hasn’t. I love both of them to death, and I’m sure Kim does too. Good for them for not allowing petty nonsense to interfere with their friendship. Maybe they can teach us all a lesson.

The card game, oh the card game! Again, try to understand us, we have a very distorted sense of humor, and whether you get it or not, it’s all in good fun. Although I have to admit, I do hope Jacqueline was kidding when she said they hog-tied someone! I’m sure I would have heard about it if it actually happened, right? When Jacqueline told Ashley she looked like her grandmother I was shocked to see Ashley’s reaction. First, I need to understand where the insult was, because Jac clearly told Ashley she looked like her grandmother when she was younger. So what? Second, why would you go down and disrupt the card game? I like the fact that Jacqueline stood her ground and diffused the situation immediately. I like even more that Derek didn’t get involved and STAYED after Ashley was asked to leave. By staying he showed Ashley that he didn’t condone her behavior. Good for him. Ashley needs to understand that Jacqueline is her mother, not her girlfriend. It’s OK to have an opinion and disagree, but it is NEVER OK to be disrespectful. As for Jacqueline’s conversation with Steve, I love the fact that she hit him head on and told him how she felt. I met Steve once, very briefly, and I don’t know too much about the whole situation, but I have to hand it to Jacqueline for addressing it. See, I told you, she’s a spitfire!

OMG, it's 2:15 am. I may pass out so I think I need to wrap this up. I think I covered everything, so again, thanks for watching! You guys are the best!

PS. I have a feeling I’m going to be crying my heart out as I watch next week’s episode. :o(
