Ep 8: Bravotv.com's Editor ponders Gretchen's gift, Heather's performance, and the return of Lauri.

on May 20, 2013

Hello my little Hotties in Cleveland (and really anywhere). Are you praying to God that a Rolls Royce drives your way? Or are you just hoping God curtails your mother's pot-smoking ways? Let's recap all those issues here shall we.

Family Affairs
We open with Terry starting his Dr. Mom duties. First of all I love that one of the members of Dubrow brood is up and dressed waiting on his dad. That kid is a go-getter. So far so good. If only all the tots were this easy, Terry wouldn't have put up a fuss in the first place. Thankfully for Heather, the job is a cinch. I mean the woman is a professional. If she's half as funny as she is in real life, she is born to nail this guest role. And no surprise: she kills it at the table read and has plenty of new friends to talk to at lunch. (Aww, sweet Heather, who wouldn't want to talk to you?)

Meanwhile, as Heather has Terry, Tamra has wrangled some assistance of her own -- Lauri. Yes, that Lauri. She's looking at rings for she and Eddie and decided to call in some reinforcements from the way back machine. Coincidentally, both ladies are on their third marriage. Three seems to be doing well for Lauri, so here's hoping it's the same for Tamra. Things are great for Lauri, which is so delightful to hear. Also Josh is married! Crazy sauce!). But not delightful for Lauri to hear about is anything Vicki-related. Lauri's years with Vicki lead her to believe that Vicki tried to sabotage things with George and that Vicki's misery loves company. But what about Vicki's happiness? Is it also a fan of piling on?
