This episode was certainly a hodgepodge of less than exciting footage although there were certainly some oddly interesting moments.
Spent WAY too much time on Halloween (maybe it's just me), the Marry F Kill auditions were a total snooze (what passed for comedy from the Sonja-Luann duo was cringe af). It's sadly obvious that Lu and Sonja are milking this for every last drop, and it's getting less appealing with every show.
If we didn't already know Tinsley is leaving, her friendship with Leah would be more interesting to me (that whole scene with Tins and Leah on the phone made me sad again that she's leaving).
But the more exposure Leah has the less interesting I find her. That goes double for her sister. I mean, from what we've seen so far, their lives are that of rich fuck-ups. Do they work? I never heard of her Married to the Mob clothing label. Not that I know anything about that stuff. The clothes are pretty unremarkable, and I can't imagine anyone wanting to wear a label that says "married to the mob", but from what I've seen and read online, the clothes somehow "empower women" (a horridly over-used phrase if there ever was one). I guess all you have to do is write a bit of claptrap that panders to feminism with a capital F and you can sell anything.
Both Leah and her sister are unwed mothers (which to me screams 'irresponsible' since neither one has the excuse of tender years for such bad judgment) although the info I've read online about Sarah shows some effort was made to muddy the waters to make it look as if she's married to her baby daddy. She wears a whisper-thin gold band on "that" finger and refers to him as "my husband". I haven't been able to find any images of Sarah and her baby daddy. The man who fathered Leah's daughter looks at least 20 years older than Leah. No wonder those two live separate lives.
Anyone notice in the scene at the tequila bar that Dorinda couldn't even bring herself to say Tinsley's name? I watched it twice -- when Elyse asked who else was coming, Dorinda said "Leah and uhhhhhhhh" before Luann and someone else chimed in and finished the sentence. From the look on her face I could tell she just didn't want to speak her name.
And OMG -- Tinsley did NOT tell Leah (at least not on camera in this episode) that she and Scott are getting married, which is what's been heavily implied up until this episode.
All this about Tinsley getting her happily ever after is really just her moving in with him, and that's all it is. Tinsley even said in the cab there's no ring and she's not sure exactly when -- she only said to Leah that "it's good" and she knows it's going to happen and they're going to make this work -- not that he's asked her to marry him. It was Leah at the tequila bar who said in her toast to Scott and Tinsley that "Tinsley said she and Scott are getting married and this is it!" but Tinsley never did say that. At least not on camera.
I did get a tiny chuckle out of Tinsley's little sass back to Dorinda when she mocked Dorinda's "hey lemme tell ya" at the table. It only spurred Dorinda on further to her low-blow turkey baster comment and even lower-blow high-five attempt with Luann afterward. 100% pure nasty.
EDIT: Posted this before I had time to see the last 10 minutes of the show -- sorry for going off on the wrong tangent with Tins 😭 I'm sure gonna miss her.
