This housewife, let’s call her Big Em, seems to have a new business franchise. She’s practically running a bed and breakfast for displaced cast members. Currently, another housewife, let’s call her Little Em is shacked up with her in her formerly luxurious abode.
The arrangement seemed to be mutually beneficial when the boarder moved in a couple of months ago. After all, the two have a lot in common. Their biggest commonality is their major contributions to devastating divorces that caused a sudden loss of status in their community. A close friendship between these two would seem likely.
HOWEVER, since winter has arrived, the boarder is wishing she had a bit more meat on her bones. Like a scene out of a movie, the two are often milling about in their winter outerwear. As usual, the address may be good, but the living conditions are unbearable.
Also eerily similar to the movie, Big Em is regaling Little Em with stories of glory days gone by. A lot. They become more glamorous with each frequent retelling.
In yet another, “you can’t make this up” twist, Little Em, is staying in Big Em’s daughter’s bedroom despite having other options.
Little Em is looking forward to heading off to warmer climes. At least for the holidays.
