We rejoin the Little Women: NY crew as Katie and PJ partake in a maternity photo shot. Think nude Demi Moore with a pink bow wrapped around her tummy, only shorter. Jess stops by to get the guest list for the baby shower. Katie definitely wants her mom there and definitely doesn’t want Lila there. Katie says Lila is a mean little person with insecurity issues. So obviously Lila will crash the baby shower and turn it into a bitch fest.
Fast forward to Dawn stopping by Katie’s new apartment to chat and clean up the dog piss. Dawn feels bad about what went down at the pumpkin patch, but doesn’t quite muster up an apology. In fact, she kind of blames Katie for her other “life stresses” that are going on named, PJ. Katie needs everything for the baby and PJ has provided nothing. Dawn is looking forward to the baby shower and slamming PJ some more.
Across town, Jess meets up with Jason and Jazmine to help plan Katie’s baby shower even though she’s still pissed off about the pumpkin patch and intervention fiascos. The baby shower colors are pink and black and the theme is no Lila. Jaz thinks not inviting Lila will cause drama, but not to worry, my money’s on Lila showing up anyway. Jess says it’s Katie’s day and she doesn’t need or want the added stress wrapped in a pink and black bow.
Dawn and Lila go shopping, but the gossip quickly moves to Katie. Dawn tells Lila about stopping by Katie’s “filthy” apartment and how she has no support from PJ and no items for the baby. Then she tells Lila about the baby shower. Lila can’t wait. She loves babies. Lila seems to know she’s not invited, but Dawn invites Lila anyway because what’s the worst that can happen? Lila will be asked to leave. No ladies, the worst that can happen is the stress causes an early labor for Katie. But hey, this is about Lila, so never mind.
Katie and PJ return from a disappointing doctor’s appointment. She wasn’t able to have an ultrasound and has been given the option to have the baby in five days or wait two weeks. PJ says it’s all good in the hood as long as Katie is happy and comfortable. Please man, go back to Seattle. Katie is scared and crying and only Jess seems to be able to comfort and understand the real concerns facing Katie.
Bring on intervention #2. David stops by Dawn’s place to “resolve the issues from the past.” Though he has no clue. Dawn tells David she misses him. David asks why, it’s not like they’re best friends. Never was, never will be. Dawn is bothered because she did everything for their dying mother and David did nothing. David doesn’t see it that way. Where was Dawn when he was kicked out of the house at 19, sleeping on a bench, and homeless for five years? David tells Dawn he’s done and stomps out.
Dawn calls Lila in tears and she runs over. She gives Lila as very different version of what went down. Like how she and David can now reach out to each other and start loving each other, and the SOB blew up on her. The nerve! Lila takes David’s side by reminding Dawn he was abandoned. Lila can demonstrate such insight when it has nothing to do with her. Can I get an amen? Dawn says this is what she gets for being vulnerable. Lila advises Dawn to keep trying because family is worth it. Dawn is skeptical that anyone is worth it.
Jazmine and David are having a last meal before he leaves for Florida again. Jaz points out that Dawn plays the pity game and questions why David can’t put Dawn in her place. Jaz claims has no problem doing this. WTF? This isn’t true at all, but whatever. It’s time for David to leave.
Later that night, Jazmine and Jess drag Jason out to a gay bar. So what he’s finally in a committed relationship to a very cute guy. It’s time to party. Bring on the shots and men in tighty-whiteys. Jason starts dancing up a storm. At the end of the evening a guy gives Jason a lemon drop and his number. The next morning Jason is hungover. Jazmine reminds Jason he was shaking his booty and got someone’s digits. Jason wants to keep this from DJ, but Jaz thinks he should be honest. This is how trust is formed. Hahahahaha. That’s funny, Jaz. Bring on the pain killers.
Katie’s mom, Kathie, who is also a little person, arrives in town for the upcoming baby shower. Katie starts to cry as she tells her mom they still don’t know Kinsley’s current weight. Kathie then makes Katie cry even more by telling her that her dad is watching from heaven.
Elsewhere, Jason and DJ meet up for lunch in a box. Jason breaks the news about going out drinking and dancing with the girls. DJ is nodding, listening, and preparing himself. Jason explains there were strippers and yada, yada, yada, he got a phone number. Here’s the thing, Jason still has the other guy’s phone number. There proper response is, “Hell no, I burned that sucker five seconds after I got it.” Next time, DJ wants Jason to ask him to go out dancing, and then DJ will say no because he doesn’t like to dance, and then Jason can go out with his friends.
It’s the day of the baby shower, but Katie has just heard from the doctor and needs to go in immediately for the ultrasound. She will be late to her shower, but this is way more important than the drama that’s about to ensue, so Katie, her mom, and PJ leave. Jason and Jazmine arrive and Jess fills them in. Jess also fill them in on slacker PJ.
The guests begin to arrive and Jess still hasn’t heard from Katie. There’s a knock at the door and in walk Dawn and Lila. “Everyone loves a baby shower,” announces the not-invited Lila. Jess informs Lila she wasn’t invited and it wasn’t Dawn’s place to invite her. Jess says it’s about Katie. Lila says it’s about a baby. Jess says, “Thanks for bringing your gift, now leave.” The guests’ jaws are dropping because they don’t know who these people are or what’s going on.
Lila and Jess go into the bedroom to discuss how this is all about Lila. Jess says she doesn’t like Lila because…but can’t get a word in edgewise so in frustration curses. Lila asks her to please watch her language because it’s a baby shower, even though the baby mamma isn’t there and she wasn’t invited. Here comes the F-bombs from Jess. Lila tells Jess to “keep the Jameson to a minimum when the baby comes.” And Jess responds, “Not everyone is a drunk like you.”
Them are fighting words! Tune in next week when the dirty diapers hit the fan.
