Meeeeeeowwwwww. The claws are out. In perfect O.C. fashion, Gretchen ran around the house showing her new shiny diamond to Jeff's children. It was a bit gauche, but when I was 30, I was much more into material things too. I was living in Chicago, engaged to the wrong guy and miserably buying things I didn't need. Now I'm all about eBay and retail is a bad word. Just when I want to dislike her, I second guess myself and think she really has stood by her man and giving her pretty things makes him happy. You can't take it with you.
As for Lynne's daughter Alexa, she is interesting and surprisingly musical. She is more textured than her seemingly superficial sibling. However, her not being responsible enough to say the word sex (when she referred to their intimacy) then she probably shouldn't be having it. That was a little tidbit from my assistant Molly. Listening to Alex and her boyfriend Randy was like watching Beavis and Butthead.
I am loving Jeana. She seems calm and happy and drama free. I like her ex-husband, and I thought it was very considerate of her to ask if his girlfriend (or was it wife) knew that Jeana would be working with him. It also is a good sign to be friends with your exes. I'm friends with most of mine. There is quite a trail and I'd have to have the average of Cal Ripken to be friends with all of them. I've done my best. I also am similar to Jeana in that I have great taste in men and have chosen wisely.
