Jake is back!! MB's ex stops by again and... we love!!! In this ep we get into some serious issues like drinking alcohol, having opinions, and how MB really needed to paint her nails that night (but she didn't actually end up painting them until days later). The general public is ready for A Star is Born, which received a 7 minute standing ovation at a film festival (that name of which escapes me). MB, Kiki, and Jakey also do their birth charts according to which Brady Bunch character they are before getting into the Amy Winehouse documentary (Jake has yet to see). BUT the really tea is actually about The Devil Wears Prada. ARE HER FRIENDS THE ASSHOLES? Lol yeah.
