That episode was painful to watch ... painful knowing that it's the beginning of many good and not-so-good things to come. It's amazing how in so little time, alliances and enemies can be created. I was definitely getting a feel for some of the trainers and Jackie in this episode. I would say the difficult part is NOT to get involved when I'm in the center of activity whether I like it or not. I'm not sure what I have really signed up for. One thing I do is shoot straight from the hip (which I have a lot of!) and when Jackie told me that Brianna moved into her house soon after they met, my initial reaction was a song by Kanye West -- Gold Digger! I think Jackie was still seeking comfort and maybe she was blindsided and needed companionship? Jackie gives from her heart 100% it seems like. I'm the same way, which usually means we get hurt. She seems happy, so hopefully this is a good sign of things to come ... right after the U-Haul! What the hell??? I'm calling Jackie "fat" and I'm looking pretty "chunky" myself. I'm not pleased with the dress I'm wearing at the restaurant when Jackie gives trainers their Sky Lab clothes -- I had to wear my Dolce boots and I thought that dress would be cute on camera. NOT! Speaking of the clothes-: I didn't get a damn thing! So I was a little pissy in the end .... Erika is so funny and super sweet. I'm just getting to know her in this episode. That's one classy BIAAATCH! She likes the finer things in life and she makes no bones about it. I smell a friendship, a sisterhood here!
Peeler and Jackie are at each other throats, which is all new to me. That relationship is toxic beyond belief and it creates tension in the office because Peeler and I have no issues. I'm confused by Renessa in this episode because her comment about "personal training being the only place she can boss men around" is rather odd. I wonder if Oprah feels the same way??? Thank you for setting women back a 100 years with that statement. Dear Renessa: There are many occupations where you can boss men around. Together we will come up with some options for you in the event personal training doesn't pan out for you. I don't know what to think about Gregg Plitt. Nice body -- a lil much for me. I was a little taken back when he refused to wear the clothes and turned the pants inside out. That was offensive to Jackie and it hurt me because I know the blood, sweat, and tears that went behind making those clothes. I'm not sure if his balls of steel are going to help or hurt him at Sky Sport, and it looks like he will try and give Jackie a run for her money. OK -- so I was a little bitchy asking him to put his shirt on, but c'mon Greg, we know you have six billion muscles, so we didn't need them on display. Not everyone aspires to be the INCREDIBLE HULK, so it can be rather intimidating. Jackie is a little nervous introducing her NEW girl to us. It's like walking into the pit of HELL! That dinner party was on the eve of a fashion show for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. So I was ready to dine and dash, but with the Rebecca/Jackie/Brianna tryst unfolding plans changed. It was an uncomfortable dinner because I knew Jackie wanted to kick back and laugh with Rebecca and still respect Brianna. That's a pipe dream, so it's best to put them in their own corners. I thought it was unfair that Greg P. brought his date/client and Brianna tagged along with Jackie when we were told that we couldn't bring dates. All in all, the food was delicious and thank goodness I arrived late -- just watching lesbian tongue hockey on TV is an appetite suppressant (unless a proper porno movie!) Until next time, xoxo lisa
