Melyssa and Daisy are out at the park talking about Demetria. Because Demetria is the star and they need something to talk about on TV. Geneva is talking to Mica about being hurt that Demetria would talk about her recent breakup in her blog. Let me stop right here to direct you to the scandalous blog at the center of all of this nonsense. No names were used AT ALL. Demetria just refers to the group of women she was having a conversation with about snooping and checking up on your man. Demetria side of the issue is that it wrong and pretty much crazy behavior. And she is right. However, I think everyone in the world (besides Demetria who is apparently perfect in every way) has nosed around a bit on their man at least once in their life. Demetria is not talking about any major scandal. As Brandi Glanville would say, “It’s not like they murdered anybody.” This drama is unnecessary and ridiculous.
Demetria and Brie are at a restaurant talking about Daisy and Geneva’s reactions. Demetria acknowledges that Geneva may still be raw from the ending of her relationship. Demetria says that she had no intention of reopening a wound if that is what happened. Brie suggests that Demetria approach Geneva and tell her that she did not have bad intentions when writing the blog. Demetria acknowledges that Brie is right and says she needs to work through her ego and then reach out to Geneva. What we are witnessing here is two grown women having a conversation, and acknowledging that perhaps some unintentional harm was done, and discussing how to make amends. I believe this is the first time I have ever seen anything like this on Bravo.
Mica’s boyfriend Terry, who was the waiter at the dinner party at her house last episode, has cheated on her with someone he has been in a relationship with for 20 years. Um, girlfriend, that’s a problem. Mica’s relationship with her father is broken. They do not speak. She hasn’t seen him in a year. And sadly, I recently read an article where Mica said her dad died during filming. While they are playing basketball, Terry is gently trying to nudge Mica to call her father, who is ill.
Daisy has a book called Never Pay Retail Again that is being rereleased in digital form. And she is looking at photos to choose for the cover. Does this make sense to anyone? Isn’t digital an e-book? Do e-books even have covers? Do the scenes with Daisy ever make sense?
Mica is working with a model at her agency on her walk. In her talking head Mica points out that she is black. Both of her parents are black. They show a picture of her parents both of whom are very light skinned. Clearly, they are mixed. But Mica is adamant that she is black. So black she shall be.
Demetria and Geneva meet to hash out their issues. As soon as Geneva sits down they start having a stare down. It’s odd. The waiter actually apologizes for interrupting the stare down to take their drink order. By the way, does Geneva give anyone else the Sheryl Underwood vibe? They sort of favor each other to me. Geneva is literally sipping her tea and throwing shade already at Geneva for ordering cappuccino with a shot of Grand Marnier.
Geneva says she felt hurt, like her feelings were dismissed. She talked about how she felt when she found out her man was cheating and Demetria just dismissed it. Part of the problem here, in my opinion is that these women do not know each other. Demetria had never met Mica before and only “knew of” the other women. So they were sort of thrust together to film and they really don’t have any experience with each other to know how the others will react. Meanwhile, Demetria is sitting there sipping on tea while Geneva pours her heart out. She could not be more dismissive in her demeanor. Geneva was expecting a modicum of compassion, but it doesn’t seem like Demetria worked through her ego like she told Brie she would.
Geneva said that Demetria seemed above reproach and that when Demetria said she would never do this or that (meaning snooping) it came off as high and mighty. Geneva didn’t say high and mighty, I am paraphrasing here. Demetria says that is the truth. Geneva says, “Lucky you!” and Demetria replys “Indeed.” Which she delivered in such a way that the whole, “Sucks to be you” was unspoken but received nonetheless.
Now Geneva is hurt again. She came for an apology and is getting shade. The shade is being delivered in the most exquisite, subtle way ever. But shade is most definitely being thrown by a professional here. Those real housewives could learn a thing or three from Demetria. So Geneva, who is out of her league in many ways, gets desperate. Geneva comes out with, “Well I have heard a lot of things about you.” and Demetria effortlessly volleys back with, “There are a lot of stories to tell about me.” Geneva tries, ” I’ve heard a lot of negative things about you.” Demetria says, “There’s a lot of that too.” and keeps right on sipping her tea.
Eventually, Geneva says she doesn’t really give a damn about the blog. She is over it. Demetria says she has never written anything on her blog with the intention of attacking them. Demetria says, “If I opened a wound, I apologize.” And Geneva accepts the apology. The mood lightens and everyone is satisfied. No really. Nary a table got flipped or a drink thrown. Just two women having a mature conversation.
Melyssa and Mica are predrinking before Geneva’s party. They have no idea what her new position is or why she is getting a party. When they arrive they both are pissed there is only one bartender working the party. Clearly, these two are focused on getting drunk. Geneva is mingling and meeting a lot of people in the brand marketing field. She is very proud of her accomplishments. Brie arrives a bit late and immediately starts sucking down liquor. No wait. She doesn’t do that at all. She hugs Geneva and congratulates her on her new position. Len, the head of Uptown Magazine where Geneva got the job walks in. Geneva introduces him to the girls as her boss. Brie says, “This is a good investment right here.” referring to Geneva. Mica slurs out a plug for her modeling agency. Then there is a montage of Mica drinking a variety of drinks, Vodka, wine, Vodka….
Mica is wasted and crawling on the backs of couches and throwing her legs in the air. Apparently she is drunk in her talking heads too. Geneva points out that this is a work event, but Mica is undeterred.
Demetria arrives late and greets Geneva cordially. It looks like the apology is going to stick. AND JASON ARRIVES. Let us pause for a moment to reflect on his hotness. Maybe a few moments. Why don’t they have this man miked?
We cut to a scene with Daisy and her father who is in town for a visit. All I can think is, can we get back to Jason? Later, Daisy’s father gives her a key necklace because she holds the key to her heart.
Back at Geneva’s party, Melyssa and Mica are acting a fool while the boss is trying to give a toast. making loud noises that sound like a monkey getting raped by a baboon. Geneva moves away from the ladies. Melyssa screams out “he’s keeping us lubricated!” and Len says, “Yep and don’t overdo it. Get home safely.” Geneva wants to crawl in a hole and die at this point. As Demetria told Jason, it’s like they have never been out of the house before. Brie is petrified by the behavior on display by Mica and Melyssa and rightly so.
Geneva says in her talking head, “I thought Melyssa was leaving the video hoeing behind her, but not she is giving me a hoe moment. She’s having flashbacks.”
Security is asking Melyssa to leave and she is screaming like at three year old while jumping on the couch with Mica, “No I don’t want to! “
Demetria has seen enough and leaves with Jason. Outside the club, Jason finally gets a mike and tells Demetria about the date. I know Jason is practically family to Demetria and Daisy was a horrific date, but I would have preferred that Jason be a bit more gentlemanly in the telling rather just blurting out, “She has no class.”
Speaking of no class. Mica is flashing her vagina at the Uptown event. Geneva and Brie lure them out of the party with promises of another bar. Then the two idiots literally start to play in traffic. Melyssa stands in the middle of traffic trying to stop a cab. Several slow down, take a quick look at her drunk ass and ride on. Finally, a cab stops but Mica is too drunk to get in the cab and the cabbie starts moving with her hanging out of the door. Brie stops that and they get out of the cab hoping for a better driver. Brie gets on the phone and calls a cab for the ladies.
Next week some of the girls head for The Hamptons, while Mica goes to say goodbye to her dying father.
I wasn’t sure where to put this, so I will just put it here. I heard a rumor that Melyssa Ford did not have a job when Bravo found her so they were not going to hire her despite really liking her. So she worked a deal with the Real Estate company to allow her to “pretend” to work there in exchange for filming at their location and providing them publicity. I am unable to confirm that at this time. However, the streets are talking. And I’ve always said that Melyssa doesn’t seem to know how the real estate business works, at all, or appear to be licensed.
