Hola Trashies! Can you believe I’ve deleted this twice?! TWICE! I’m officially technology challenged. OR this show has turned my brain into mush. Or all the wine I’m drinking to get through it is. Either way, this recap is TAKING FOREVER, and there’s a new episode for me to get to so let’s DO THIS! And not delete it.
We pick up where we left off with a giddy Joe Francis homoerotically giddy over the gay porn of Dustin. I stand by my beliefs that Joe KNEW ahead of time about Dustin’s past and that the producers told him about it. Because it honestly seems so “fishy” to me that he would do a web seach as a prank. Anyway, he goes to find Flav to participate in his homophobic giddy. Flav is frying chicken and is all like, “F Stereotypes, who doesn’t love chicken?!” Agreed, Flav. Chicken is delicious. Seriously though, that fried chicken looks nummy.
Just to add an extra level of creepy to the situation, because let’s be honest here – Joe’s Creepy Thermometer is broken – he’s taping Flav’s reaction to the gay porn.
Ha ha! Just watching gay porn, like two straight dudes totally do! Isn’t my boner hilarious?!! Ha ha!
Flav is shocked and is also glad he participated in the viewing of the gay porn and says that he will gladly “burn my chicken up for this shit!” Okey dokey Flav. Priorities, my friend. Priorities.
At this point, nobody else is participating in the “Shame Dustin” movement that Joe is trying to film and sell on the internet, as you do. Instead they’ve all fled the room and are avoiding him like the plague. Because they might all be decent human beings. Ahem.
Dr. J meets with Dustin and Heather and voiceovers that she hopes that Dustin’s ponorgraphic past doesn’t become a distraction in the house. Please lady, this show is COUNTING on it being a distraction and frankly both Flav and Joe are thankful for it, because it takes the spotlight off their own awfulness. (Okay, so Flav is awful by association with Liz, but still. AWFUL).
Dr. J’s session with Heather and Dustin is interesting and we get to see what a weird ass character Dustin is. I didn’t watch Real World, I only read about it on these recaps, so I am not familiar with him. I can only tell you that he shows up without shoes and speaks in a weird whispery David Beckham voice.
They reveal to Dr. J that they come from different backgrounds. She had a normal healthy childhood and his was filled with abandonment and uncertainty. He reveals that when he was offered the opportunity to join the FratPad porn house, it became a sort of family for him and that he felthe belonged somewhere. Wow. That’s incredibly sad. He also identifies as straight and downplays the sexual aspect of the Fratpad as just “oral,” so it wasn’t a big deal.
