I suffer from anxiety and depression, so it is interesting to me how Catelynn manages to motivate for things like going to the VMAs in LA and leaving her kids behind with Tyler. And yet, here she is in sunny California. I mean on the one hand it is good for her to get out into the sun and have some fun, it’s just hard to muster the energy to do those things in my experience. Tyler meets his mom for lunch and they are both glad she took advantage of the experience. Tyler isn’t into that sort of thing. The also agree that Butch is using again and dealing with him is exhausting.
Tyler wants to confront Butch about going to rehab. When he finds him at his new house working on a fence. He asks him if he is ready to go to rehab. So that is good.
Taylor and Maci are wanting to rent an office for their business because it is impossible to get anything done in the house these days with all the kids. Later, as they are driving to look at spaces, Maci noticed that one of their shirts that says “Property of Los Angeles” is misspelled. It’s a crisis and they have to get online to take the product down. I appreciate that this is a major issue for them and there is no finger-pointing. Taylor says this is a learning experience and they need to add another thing to their final checklist. She says he needs to do some damage control. No voices were raised. Later they find a cute little office that is perfect for the business, it’s sort of a small business commune with a kitchen with coffee and beer included in the rent. They love beer! So they took it.
Mack is tooling down the road much faster than Ryan would like as it appears that she has taken over driving. Ryan is complaining about car sickness and laying back in his seat. Ryan has asked her super nicely three times to slow down but she won’t. Then she screams at him that she is not going to let him talk to her like that. We get a lot of interesting footage when they are in the car on long trips and assume the car ride will not make it to air. Apparently, they are going to Chattanooga where Mack is from. When she gets there she films a scene about Ryan’s short temper with her friend.The video tape proves she is the one with the short temper. She tells her friend that marriage is not all she thought it would be. Being married to a heroin addict is not fun. Who could have guessed that?
Later Ryan and Mack meet for lunch in Chattanooga. Apparently she spent the day getting her hair done. He’s being really nice to her and asking about her day, while she plays on the phone. He tells her how much he appreciates her and all of her support and how much regret he has for the burden he has put on her and his parents and Maci and Bentley. He seems a lot better. Unless he is lying. And how could you ever trust him?
Our other depression sufferer, Amber who was in the bed for months too down to even call her kid, is also at the VMAs with her latest con artist, Andrew, for their first public appearance. Andrew apparently has no home of his own. His parents live in Malibu.
Gary shows up to the VMAs well and is already being asked about his feelings about Amber’s new man. I have never seen so many photographers in one small space. The amount of attention they are getting is amazing. There are throngs of screaming fans. I’m in shock. Andrew loved it. Who could have guessed that?
Once back home, Andrew gets to meet Leah and Gary that family for the first time when he comes to pick up Amber. #FoolsRushIn
Sophia and Farrah have some sort of modeling job for New York Fashion Week. For an extra dose of stupidity, Debra is tagging along. I am dying to see who in the hell would want this trainwreck associated with their brand. How does Debra have an EMBA? Farrah starts making fun of her for including her degree on her wedding invitations. Debra is not in the door two minutes before Farrah is screaming at her about bringing negativity into her life. Sophia immediately starts acting out. Later a very large drag queen comes to give Sophia tips for her runway walk. She seems terrified. He gave the worse advice ever. This is so ridiculous. Farrah bitches at her mother all the way to the event.
Apparently, the fashion show is really a hair show for Style The Runway hair products. Sophia actually did great, with a little help from Farrah.
Next week, Farrah takes her mother all the way to Italy to be verbally abusive toward her in front of her child.
