The week begins with Tina and Tarz arguing about his lack of libido and going on dates together. Tina explains that she expected more out of her first year of marriage. Sorry but I have to laugh when they’re having such a serious conversation while laying in a bed of sequins. They move on to a photo shoot, both in thongs. They’re like Ken and Indian Barbie. She is gorge and has a sick body, and he’s hot too. They should be doing it a lot right about now. No kids, he works from home, etc. Tarz is reminded of why he loves her so much as
they strike a pose together. It’s a sweet, genuine moment.
Kathryn and John are well into pregnancy and she wants to see John do some housework before the baby comes. In typical John fashion, he hires a friend to paint and tries to help, but mainly just complains the entire time. They also argue over the tanning salon. The two take a trip to a store to register for gifts for their upcoming baby shower. John again complains, this time that “the baby is going to get all the attention”. John is the only man at the shower and complains too. John’s less than charming sister, the one who complained that she wasn’t in a photo album Kathryn made decides to make a speech. She proclaims how surprised she is that they’re having a baby so soon after getting married, that she better be included in future albums and she will not be available to help them on Friday and Saturday nights. John tells her how beautiful the speech is. Seriously?? After the shower they argue about getting rid of the pool table to make room for a playroom. In front of his sister and her family. Of course sister dearest chimes in, really, you’ve got to mind your own business honey. Meanwhile, the nursery is finished and John starts coming around. They even pick
a name for the baby. Dean James, after both of their fathers.
Jeff and Blair start the day together as Blair goes off to work and Jeff meets with an attorney. He wants to know where things stand now that he and Blair have a legal domestic partnership. The first thing the lawyer wants to know is where Blair is. Jeff learns that being partners means, that during the relationship, everything they have and earn becomes community property. Clearly Jeff wasn’t aware that Blair was acquiring little stakes in Jeff’s home. Clearly, he’s not thrilled by this either. Blair is very upset that Jeff went to speak to someone without him, declaring it shady. Agreed Blair. They end up visiting a financial planner, trying to figure out just how to merge or not merge their finances. They decide to draft wills and living trusts.
Alaska surprises Kim with a bicycle and a cute bike ride after he’s been traveling. They ride to Rosa Mexicano for lunch where he announces he has to go to work right after and is basically texting the entire lunch. She asks him not to, but he continues. It’s actually painful. He gets up and leaves and she’s left to ride her bike home alone. Alaska opens up to Kim, about his mom, while on a trip to the grocery store. His mom passed away previously and he wants Kim to do many of the things his mom used to do. Like cook for him, hence the grocery store. Alaska and Kim are growing on me, slowly.
Tina ends the episode by telling us she’s a week late. Is she or isn’t she?
Until next week, stay tuned…
