We are back in Vegas and it’s the morning after Renee’s crazy pool scene. Big Ang (yay!) is doing her thing. She has ordered a magnificent breakfast and is prepared for everyone to enjoy it, clear the air, and get on with having fun in Vegas. I would love to party with Ang. She would get you trashed, flirt with all of the men, get you home to bed, and feed you enough food the next day to kill any hangover that dared show its face.
She and Alicia talk about how this “off the wagon” version of Renee is scary and that it isn’t really her. This is the Renee that was crawling around on the kitchen floor with dirty feet bitching about crumbs. This is not the Renee who laughs and loves hard. In other words, this is the bat shit crazy Renee that is to be avoided at all times.
Drita and Renee join Ang and Alicia for breakfast. Renee still looks horrible, and Drita is bitching about having lost 2 grand at the casino. She wants the ladies to help her think of a believable lie for Lee. Ang kills me when she tells Drita that it doesn’t matter what she says, Lee is going to know that she is fucking lying (yeah, because you are on TV dummy!). Drita also knows that Renee is a ticking time bomb when it comes to Natalie. She is down with Ang’s plan to get everything out in the open at breakfast so that they can move on.
She decides that there won’t be any behind the back talking, so she goes to get Natalie. She sits her down and says that she wanted to get her bad blood out one on one because she has been ganged up on before and doesn’t want that to happen to Natalie. She says that after she first met Natalie she talked mad shit about her, and wasn’t sure how they were going to do on this trip. She is over her problems, Alicia apologizes for her prior behavior toward Drita and the two hug it out.
They go to breakfast, and it really is a huge spread. Renee immediately starts in with delicious-gate. She tells Natalie that the food on the table is delicious, but the man sitting beside her isn’t. Natalie says that she didn’t mean anything by it, but that she didn’t think it was inappropriate either. Renee tries to prove her point by going up to Alicia and saying, “I’ve known Eddie all my life, and he smells delicious.” Natalie wins a begrudging laugh from me when she snaps back with, “you should know he smells delicious after all of the times you went out to dinner with him.” What’s even better are the reactions to this winner of a line. Renee and Alicia stare at Natalie in Shock.
Drita and Ang look at Renee, like, “what you have to say to that?”
OK. I’m still not convinced that Renee did anything wrong in regards to the Eddie situation. But, Natalie does have a point. How is complimenting the way Rent-a-Date smelled any more inappropriate than Renee having dinner with Eddie and Carla?
Renee is not happy with her own behavior being thrown back in her face. You can almost see steam coming out of her ears and rays of fire shooting from her eyes as she storms over to Natalie’s chair. She grabs Natalie’s arm and tries to pull her away from the table like she is dealing with a child throwing a tantrum.
When Natalie refuses to leave with her, Renee goes into a rage. She throws the ice bucket all over the glorious breakfast (why must you make the food suffer, Renee?), and ends up breaking a glass and almost hitting Alicia with the shards.
Natalie is doing a good job of standing up to Renee and she even stops arguing for a minute to make sure that Alicia is ok. Once she is assured, she tears into Renee. She says Renee must be on something to throw dishes around like a psycho. She says that she tried to apologize to Renee three different times that night and Renee not only spewed crazy every where, she refused to hear her out.
Renee retreats a bit and starts trying to clean up the mess she made. Drita is trying to intervene and Renee gets in her face. Drita is not having it with the hand’s in the face thing and shuts it down quickly.
Natalie is still explaining her side of things when Renee calmly walks over to her. I have to admit, I was expecting Renee to hug Natalie, not put her in the head lock. Everyone is shocked. Natalie gets in a punch and some hair pulling ensues before Renee is pulled away by production.
