Last week was so weird when they randomly didn’t air an episode. Now They are running a big midseason sort of trailer pushing THE FINAL EPISODES OF THE SEASON where the shit all hit the fan with Jenni and Jeff. So it seems like the did it to build up all of the drama to me.
Then tonight my episode started three minutes late where Jenni and Jeff are still dealing with the Valley View producers. The program description mentions personal changes. I can’t even remember if the other “project manager” who is not Frankie was demoted or still has a job. The show hasn’t been on for two weeks and it comes on hours after wine time starts.
Let’s get on to the real drama. Oh wait. It sounds like they fired the other guy and want to train Frankie in some sort of 90 Day Project Manager Rehabilitation Program.
Jeff and his remodeling partner Julie seem to be at odds about what is going on with their projects. Julie is paying a lot of money to invest with Jeff and doesn’t seem to know what is going on. Jeff doesn’t like Julie wanting to be hands on with the investment.
Jeff’s grandma is in assisted living and beating up the nurses. It’s a family trait.
I do not understand changing a Mediterranean styled home AT ALL. But Jeff finally finished the house on Newport Beach and lots of the interior is lovely. I am so distracted by Meghan Weaver With The Big Beaver’s errr…. skinny jeans? painted on jeans? I can’t comment. Jeff wants to spend A YEAR furnishing the house. THAT THEY LIVE IN.
Jeff goes back to Valley View scream at Frankie again. I love Frankie and think it is hysterical that Bravo is now bleeping the word ‘retarded.’ I’m team Frankie. I also don’t see why Jenni doesn’t shut the fuck up. She’s not Frankie’s boss.
Jeff seems to be off the rails more than usual. I think that he’s probably freaking out because Monroe’s surrogate is suing him for his abhorrent behavior in the delivery room. Click here if you missed that drama. He was pissed and he seems to be projecting it everywhere. He also seems to want to rally Meghan and Tyler and Jenni to be on his side about all of his conflicts with business partners and other employees.
Jeff basically informs Frankie he’s the janitor on three sites now. Jenni also seems like a cunt. Frankie was tearful and JLD mocked him. Then they go to lunch with Julie to mock him some more. I’m so tired of all of these shows being about degrading people.
Sorry, I am just a little bit of a sensey snowflake lately. Y’all know I will come for people in my comments and on Twitter that annoy me, but that really seems to be ALL PEOPLE EVER DO LATELY and I’d like this site to be less depressing. And I feel like I do my recaps in my Shannon Beador voice lately and it isn’t fun anymore. But every show is about the destruction of relationships.
Sorry. I digress.
Then we get to someone panhandling and for a second I’m happy that these Jenni wants to give him “a dollar” (sigh) and then they get pissed off because they might have given him NINE WHOLE DOLLARS and they have charity remorse. I am back to hating these people. Every time someone gives me something for my birthday or Christmas or whatever, I pay it forward. I have money on the ready for people with signs. My mother used to chastise the hell out of me. The first time I did it, it gave me a good feeling. I was like 17 and driving by myself. I went home and told my mother and her response was something about how she heard “those people” were “making $30K a year” with their fake ass signs.” While I still have the skeptic gene about most things. If you are spending your life sitting on the sidewalk with a cardboard sign. I’m happy to buy you a Big Mac here and there. Fuckers. Ah, after I finished that rant, and hit play Jenni told them both to shut up. That’s a meal deal at In and Out. Wow homeless people in LA get In and Out. I need to make a sign.
There is yet another conversation with Jeff and Frankie where Frankie says basically that his employees never stay around long and the uncertainty and difficult conditions are not really something he needs. Jeff shoots back, “How soon were you thinking about leaving?” Even Gage is thrilled Frankie is getting shit canned.
Jeff is the kind of asshole who needs to outnumber the person being fired when he goes to do it in person. So he takes Meghan and Tyler with him. Frankie agrees to take a month’s severance and leave. Tyler is excited he doesn’t have a roommate on the job site that living on rent free anymore.
Next time, I dunno what the fuck happens, but it is the beginning of Jenni and Jeff’s breakup. The episode after that will be the real deal.
