I am really going to need for this baby to get better. I cannot take listening to the murderous screams. Jeff lets us know that the pediatrician said that Jeff was the glue that holds the family together. That irritated Gage, so of course Jeff can’t seem to stop reminding him about it.
Jeff is working with Lea Black again, helping her with the interior design of her new house. He is also buying furniture for New Hollywood where he is planning to move in. I do not understand this move. It surely seems like there is just as much construction going on there, than they have happening at Valley Vista. The tension between Gage and Jeff is worsening. Jeff doesn’t seem to be nearly as bonded with the baby as Gage is. I suppose that should not surprise me. But Jeff’s disdain for Gage for being more focused on a newborn than his job is disturbing. The solution is quite simple, Gage needs eight weeks or more of paternity leave. Paid paternity leave.
How is there always a new Chaz Dean project? OMG, because the two-year project that they just got finished with burned down! Wow. That’s terrible news. Chaz wants to cover one of his little fountains in pennies. But only from years he approves of. When Jeff tells the contractor he laughs until he realizes it is not a joke.
I never have been a Gage fan but Jeff is treating him just horribly. It’s painful to watch.
Lea’s house is mostly empty so they have a lot of work to do. Lea only lives there three months of the year. I was wondering how that worked since her husband lives in Miami. Lea never stops talking. Ever. It’s almost as bad as the screaming baby. She also brings her dog with her in a giant handbag. At the very, very high-end furniture store, she fed the dog on a very expensive sofa. A bowl of dogfood was places on the very expensive furniture! I just can’t believe what I am seeing.
It’s Valentine’s Day and everyone is having takeout lunch. These people eat take out for lunch every single day. That must be so expensive! Jeff continues to poke at Gage. It’s awful.
Jeff goes to his therapist. The therapist asks if they are married. He says, “Fuck no.” He talks to her about going to see an attorney to she what his options are for separating. Jeff says that he builds a pillow wall between them in bed. Just when things are taking a terrible turn, Jeff admits he is lonely. He regrets the things he says and does that make things worse and acknowledges that he is part of the problem. Wow, how did he get to that point? Jeff and Gage went to dinner for Valentine’s Day after meeting with the therapist and Jeff says he just vomited out all his feelings. It was the worst Valentine’s Day ever. It seems to have helped. So yay?
Next week: Jeff and Gage move into New Hollywood.
