This week on Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce the girls continue to navigate their lives with the new changes and challenges they’re facing. Will they let their demons get the better of them or can they power through?
Abby is jobless for the first time in a long time and doesn’t know what to do with herself. She’s cleaning up, reorganizing, finding stale weed in her spice rack, and thinking maybe it’s time to reinvent herself. But can she do something else that isn’t writing? Can she venture away from it? She’s having a hard time finding something else to be passionate about seeing as this was her life and the truth is she’s a writer to the core. Without the writing the crazy is coming out. As Barb put it, “Writers write to keep the crazy at bay.” This was her outlet and she needs to find a way back into it.
Barb is having her own issue, she’s been given Abby’s column but her style of writing is way different from what SheShe is looking for and she’s having a hard time grasping criticism of her piece. She does eventually realize she needs to grow a thicker skin when it comes to critique, especially if it’s coming from a friend that cares.
Charlie has grown into quite the little thing. He’s taken up baseball, which of course leads his mother to be one of those insane parents that will go after any teacher or coach that so much as says a negative word to their kid. Yes momma bear does get to defend her cub but little Charlie is growing up and has understood exactly why he was benched and is ready to get better. Abby realizing her little boy is growing up is a breathtaking scene.
Meanwhile, Jo and Scott are off determined to get through the whole kama sutra in one day, yoga balls and all. Seriously bouncing on a ball mid-coitus with limbs going all over the place, kids don’t try this at home. (I don’t mean literal kids, obviously). Scott is mad about Jo and she seems to be just as mad about him, but her insecurities over his sex addiction get the better of her and she ends this before it gets any deeper. She does regret it after a quick heart to heart with Barb that opens her eyes to seeing that maybe he’s not a sex addict and that was just his way of passing the time until he found the right girl, i.e. Jo. Sadly, it’s too late. She finds an empty trailer and it looks like Scott left. Sadly, no more bare buns. The man has a nice ass.
Delia is back to being the cutthroat divorce attorney that she is. Marriage-is-dead Delia is back and ready to fight for what she knows she deserves. She’s killing it only to eventually realize that Albert played her into taking on a client that is overly clingy to his lawyers. But, Delia isn’t one to go down without a fight. I have no doubt she’s going to get the final laugh.
Phoebe is finding a way to continue on without Ralph’s alimony payments. As shocking as it was for her she’s slowly finding her way to make money and not need the checks from her ex. She’s happy with JD and she’s determined to make things work even if it means cutting out the luxuries she’s grown to love. Can she do it? I think so. Her love for JD seems like it might get her through this. He’s good for her.
Alongside their own personal issues they all find time to come together a time or two. Showing that no matter what issues you’re going through, having friends at your side will always be a good idea. Speaking of, Nadia Dajani, long time friend of Lisa Edelstein, made a guest appearance as a fellow baseball mom who’s been around the block.
Tune in next week to see Abby and Barb go out on the prowl. Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce airs Wednesday nights at 10PM on Bravo.
