Howdy, Trashmii! First off, I want to say that I am loving all your comments on these caps. Hi-larious! This show is just so deliciously awful, isn’t it? And it just keeps getting
As the ep opens, we’re still in Taylor’s (and John’s) hissy fit from last week. John claims their room is 110 degrees and he just “boiled over”. Not at 110, you wouldn’t. Why, you’d barely be tepid.
Taylor says there are 1000 problems with the room/house. Oy, such drama. She says she knows she’s “imploding” – well, no she’s not, she’s exploding – and “needs to vent”, so they get Dr. Jenn on the phone. Taylor tells Jenn this “is not a fit for me”, citing that the house has pea green towels, PEA GREEN, PEOPLE! and she “can’t live like this”. You’re a D-lister making a pathetic attempt to stay in the public eye by appearing on a third-rate reality show. You don’t get to choose the towel colors, honey.
As Sada and Kelsey watch in fascinated horror, Taylor, now sitting next to John, goes on to tell Jenn she wants to wake up with “the same latte I can afford in my own home” (so Folger’s then?) and the “same filet mignon” (mmm, ground round!) as in her home. Then why didn’t she just, oh, stay home?
Apparently reading my mind, Taylor then demands that she be allowed to go home, and Jenn can just come to Vail and treat her there, ending with “the plan is I can have my life the way I want it”. Not when you’ve signed a contract.
Sada then tries to talk some sense into Taylor, telling her this has a lot to do with John, and now Taylor is making an ass of herself and looks like a diva who’s too good for the rest of them. Taylor doesn’t respond to Sada. I think she’s starting to pass out around this point.
Day 4, time for group therapy! First, Jenn tells us there’s no freaking way she’s treating Taylor in Vail.
Jenn opens the session by saying in her 20 years of practicing in Beverly Hills, “I have never seen such an entitled tantrum”. She then goes on to enumerate the various abuse Taylor says she suffered in the past, and claims Taylor is tough, so she wouldn’t be brought “to your knees” by green towels or lattes. Yes she would, because she’s a drama queen and a big ol’ drunk.
Taylor says “people aren’t getting fed”. But this tantrum was right after they went to dinner. Plus these people eat all the time. She then says she’s not “asking for caviar, I want to eat something better than the public school system”. Really? What we see some of the gals eating later is grilled salmon and a delicious-looking salad, not fish sticks. (Disclaimer: “fish sticks” used for comparative purposes only, no insult to the American Fishing Industry is intended).
John talks about the heat leading to a meltdown, and says Taylor “senses my impatience”. From what I saw, she brought plenty of her own impatience to the table.
Ah, time for the first waterworks of the day. Taylor claims she “already had reality TV kill one person in my life and now he’s (John) is spinning out of control and my career is killing someone else again”.
Couple of thoughts here: first, reality TV didn’t kill Russell, Taylor did (or contributed to it by talking about the alleged abuse publicly, thus driving him to despair). John isn’t spinning out of control – he’s just a pompous jackass. Third, since when does Taylor have a career, much less one that can kill people?
Jenn says she’s worried about John establishing a dynamic where he’s in charge and Taylor won’t speak up for herself. When, in any TV show Taylor has ever been on, has she failed to speak up for herself? All she does is talk about her precious feelings. All. The. Time.
At no point does Jenn or Mike Dow, the other therapist in the room, or anyone else for that matter address the real issue – Taylor was stinking drunk. Not that she’s much better sober, but still. Wouldn’t a professional therapist who calls themselves “Dr.” mention the elephant in the room?
Nope, I guess not, cause we’re on to Kelsey now. Jenn asks if she’s afraid if she doesn’t go along with Ghost he will find someone who will? Kelsey says he’ll do what he wants anyway. Mike butts in to reiterate that Ghost isn’t ok with Kelsey’s past. There’s more discussion of stripper vs. prostitute, and Farrah (who should know!) tells Ghost those are not the same thing. Ghost now refers to his relationship, repeatedly, as having “bagged” Kelsey. Kelsey tells Ghost she loves him, he says they’ve only been together a total of about 100 days, so how can that be possible. Kelsey leaves the room. Jenn asks if Ghost wants to follow Kelsey, and he says no, so Mike goes after her.
