I’m a bit apprehensive about this episode. I really hate to watch Jeff and Gage fighting. I need them to get it together and enjoy the baby. They guys are preparing to move into the Hollywood house. It seems like Jeff sees the move as sort of a reset. Let’s hope that is the case.
This week, Lea Black has referred Jeff to Jackie Siegel. If that name sounds familiar to you it is because she is the woman who is or was building The House of Versailles the largest single family home in the country, or something. There was a reality show about the family. Sadly, the daughter died two years ago. I thought the house was in Florida though. I guess they are going to go to Florida. The house is over 90,000 square feet and has eleven kitchens.
But first they have to move to Hollywood. Every movement is based on Monroe and her feeding and sleeping schedule. Jeff pronounces the word ‘kittens” like Carole Radziwill does. It’s sofa king annoying. One of the dogs bit the mover. Monroe went batshit in the car on the way over. Jeff now associates all the negativity with Gage with Valley Vista. I’m not even sure they will ever move back.
At the new house, they already have a neighbor who likes to park in front of the gate to Jeff’s property. Who does that? Jeff goes off on the lady. He says, “I own this house and this house and you block both driveways.” The idiot lady says it’s a public place. Does she really think she can block the driveway? This neighbor is in for a big surprise. Once Monroe arrived on the scene, she screamed the entire time. I do not think she likes the new house. Jeff and Gage love the house. Jeff is choosing to be happy. He tells everyone they need to choose to be happy. Eleventy times. This makes Gage unhappy.
Gage drives Jeff to a speaking engagement. They are giggling in the car together. Giggly. This make me consider lifting my mood from miserable to tolerable. But only for a moment. The speaking engagement goes well. He says that he needs to move to new houses and have change and that if Gage wasn’t okay with that, they would probably get a divorce. He does say he will probably have to stay somewhere once they get tied into a school system, but he thinks he has a couple more moves left. They move every year. I cannot imagine that. I am trying to get out of this ghetto shack, but every time I consider it, I have huge anxiety and cry. Which has been happening a lot lately. Then I am pissed at myself for being too overwhelmed to do anything. I’ll probably die in this hell hole.
We have another therapy appointment with Jeff. These seem oddly weird to me. The therapist was expecting him to bring Gage but he didn’t. Jeff says that he is in a much better place. Everything is better since the move. The therapist has him visualize what his perfect life would look like in three years. He gives all sorts of details, Monroe is there, it’s her birthday, Gage is there, his parents are there, everyone is happy. And there is another baby. Jeff says the second one can’t possible be another high maintenance baby. He’s probably right because I think the second one will have Gage’s DNA.
Apparently, Jackie Siegal drives a van with her picture on the side of it. Because, crazy. I just saw a commercial for This Is Us and I feel like I should just go ahead and start crying now.
Gage, Jeff and Jenni go to Lea Black’s house to meet Jackie. She’s insane. She talked about doing a mosaic on the floor to mirror their huge stained glass some out of gemstones. She wanted an ice skating rink but decided to go the Sheree Whitfield route and have a roller rink instead. She has people to help her tie her shoes. It was just too much insanity to recap.
Next week, the gang flies to Florida to see Versailles. Jeff tells the owners that the bathrooms are hideous and need to be torn out. This should go well.
