This week on Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce the gals headed out to Palm Springs for a weekend ‘work’ getaway, fully equipped with booze, Cher, and exes; while Abby was having her own rendezvous in a Bakersfield motel.
Similarly, to the episode where they decided to head out to Vegas, this week Delia, Jo, and Phoebe headed to Palm Springs for a girls weekend while Phoebe was scoping out potential collectors. Abby had to bail and head off to Bakersfield for a baseball game, seeing as she is now a baseball mom. As per usual, they all had each other’s backs while dealing with their own issues. Let’s break it down.
Abby: Abby is in ‘research’ mode for her new dirty book featuring a baseball fetish of all things. Truth is, she’s got it bad for the coach. The coach who is currently going through a divorce, something she knows a thing or two about seeing as she spent a majority of season 1 and 2 dealing with her own divorce. She wants to offer her ‘services’ per-say, girl come on you know full well you wanted to spread your legs. Not judging, of course.
But it’s a sticky situation, one that her fellow soccer mom (played by real life BFF, Nadia Dajani) warns her to stay out of. Side note: there is a line towards the end when Nadia’s character walks by saying “That book better be dedicated to me.” was this improv or scripted? It honestly could go either way, seeing as the way these two played it off, I really could not tell if that was acting or real. They’re friends, it could easily have been improv. Back to what I was saying, the coach is a sticky situation but when your hormones are racing and your bladder is full, even peeing in a parking lot or being spit at with sunflower seeds doesn’t seem to distract. In fairness, she wrote the spitting into her smut-novel, so maybe she likes it.
The two of them get into it in the laundry room, cutting short of the goal though. She doesn’t want to go all the way, honey you should have thought of that way before he reached for your jean buckle. It turns out their little romp on the washer was good luck and the team is headed to the next round!
