The girls are back with another season of drama, sass, sex, and a dash of crazy. Hitting the ground running, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
When we last saw the girlfriends they were each dealing with significant life changes. Delia was, more or less, left at the alter after her almost wedding. Phoebe eloped. Jo had an ex causing havoc and a smoking delicious baker who had confessed his love to her. Barb was considering getting it on with the DJ. And Abby had just found that her job was in jeopardy because the gigolo wrote a book oh and she’s menopausal. To add to all that Becca dropped her baby in Jake’s arms and fleed. Everything was insane. After the long hiatus, the show is back and the girlfriends are still very much dealing with their respective issues.
She’s been helping Jake with the baby while waiting for the call from SheShe about her future. She doesn’t know how bad it is, but she needs to fight her case. She needs to prove to them that she’s not a phony. This is leading to her having nightmares featuring Hoda and Kathie Lee. As well as rash decision making skills wanting to adopt Becca’s baby with her un-husband. The thought is outrageous. Jake certainly thinks so. But Abby slowly starts to fall for this baby. Home girl is way too baby hungry. I get her children are getting older and women that like babies do consider some after significant gaps but this may have to do with the fact that she’s menopausal and no longer in the business of baby making. The idea of mortality is starting to set in and she just lost her job. She doesn’t know what she’s going to do.
Jake, however, lands the position to produce a new show and as great as he is gives Abby some clarity. He wants to be the one to give her a break. She always supported them, and now that she was in a little rut he wanted to help out. Let her have the time to do what she wanted to do and not worry. For a divorced couple, these two are pretty adorable and prove that divorce doesn’t have to be messy. It can be amicable, you can stay friends. You can love someone and just not be right together.
