    Wow. I’m shocked. I hope this means Tiffany Boone will return because her character is great and she’s a fabulous actress. Sad to hear these allegations but Brandon should be recast. Another great character i want to know more about.

    Uhhh... what is going on? Wendy was hanging with Blac Chyna all night? I thought she was in a sober living house? Wendy sounds infatuated with her. BC certainly knows how to snag a come up. What was the story about playing with her boobs with BC, and Lil Kevin was looking on, and then Wendy started crying? It was cute to see the audience support her with tons of applause though.

    I've watched Wendy interview a lot of, um, minor celebrities... but Blac Chyna was a new low. She even got an outfit change. I would appreciate Chyna a lot more if she had a sense of humor about herself and her gold diggerosity.

    How damn adorable are the kids on this show?? That party scene with Kevin and Maisha totally melted me. I love so many of the stories on this show - I would be okay with 86'ing the Ronnie parts to give the other stories more room to breathe. Especially Jerica's storyline I would like to marinate in more.

    I loved this show, but I agree with you, and it reminds me so much of "Unreal", if you ever watched that. The writers painted themselves in a corner where they had to have major cliffhanger reveals every episode and it just got to be too overwhelming and ridiculous.

    Thinking of your friend, and YOU, Mindthinkr!!! That is terrible news. I cringed through the EL James interview... although I found EL totally charming, and was wondering if she's a Wendy fan because she seemed tickled to be there, even though Wendy called her 'unassuming' several times, which seemed like code for 'fugly' (I'm not saying that about EL but the way Wendy said it and knowing her judgment, that's how it read to me). But Wendy seemed to really enjoy EL and it was mutual, I thought this was a fun guest that I didn't expect.

    I actually forgot to mention that... I thought it was so selfish of Judy to potentially put someone else what she went through by trying to get hit by a car. I know the show wanted the symbolism but she could have picked a way to off herself without projecting the same pain on someone else.

    I agree with you. I think we are supposed to see Steve as the abusive husband who got his, but I just didn't see it. He actually seemed pretty pleasant and even-tempered throughout the show. I think we were being led down a path where he was physically abusive, and it never really panned out - as mentioned above, he would get aggressive and would immediately stand down when Judy called him on it. Basically, whatever misdirect the producers wanted to go with, they threw in - in one episode, Steve has a restraining order against Judy, and in the next they are canoodling and reminiscing. I think that's when we were supposed to be all "is she or isn't she?" about Judy's sanity. So I'm curious what Season 2 will open with that absolves Christina Applegate of just being a murderer. The acting is all top notch. This show just reminds me of stuff like "Unreal" or "Orange is the New Black" to some degree that starts out so strong and runs out of steam quick as the twists and turns get more ridiculous.

    Don't get me wrong, I watched this entire thing in two sittings and laughed a LOT. It made my weekend. However, there were so many holes in the story. The complete dismissal of every shred of evidence by Laguna Beach PD seemed over the top. It just seemed like a re-tread of Big Little Lies in some ways. The end made no sense - James Marsden's character seemed like an asshole with no morals but it's a huge jump to put Jen in a self defense category. Christina Applegate and especially Linda Cardellini were so good. Loved this season, although I have a feeling that future seasons are going to struggle to shock us every episode to diminishing returns.

    I actually love when Wendy has these young stars on like the kid from Blackish (I forgot his name but he was charming), and today's Jacob Latimore. He's great on The Chi and was such a gentleman. I was floored when Wendy asked him if he was involved in gang activity. Where did that question come from and why does she think that's appropriate?

    I finally realized who Ronnie's lawyer is - isn't it the actress who was in Vice Principals? I just googled her - Kimberly Hebert Gregory. Damn she's good! And I totally agree - the acting is amazing. Glad this show came back, I wasn't sure it would return after Season 1.

    I agree with you. I like it, it's well acted, I like the characters, but there's something kinda background noise about it for me. I find the show frustrating because I like the characters, especially Emmett and Brandon, but they keep getting in their own way. And flashback Ronnie looks so old that it's really hard to get invested in those scenes.

    Wendy was pre-empted for the Nipsey Hussle funeral here in LA, did she address this on the show today?

    Better Things

    I'm not sure how I'm supposed to feel about this show and the characters. Sam's two oldest daughters are awful. Surly, spoiled and entitled. I know all teenagers are to some degree, but they strike me as heading toward very messed up adult lives. It's not funny or cute, and it makes the show very hard for me to watch.

    I never knew that. And how strange... Kelvin is a perfectly nice name, why remove the L? Interesting. Insert applause emoji... I think the Wendy situation is sad, but the way she's elected to handle it publicly has been a major turn off. "Say it like you mean it" Wendy... it's been years of lies and nonsense. For someone who grabs minor tidbits of gossip and puts it out on front street, if she had only lived in her truth, she could have been an icon of female strength. Does she think the current situation is better for her son to see?
