We open on recently divorced Janet and psychic Jackie, who are heading to Andrea’s husband’s plastic surgery shop to get botox for Janet. This is confusing already. Dr. Chris Moss comes and sticks needles in Janet’s face, Jackie screams and that’s about it. Jackie says she’s not ready for botox yet, but isn’t ruling it out: “If you’ve got this amazing body like myself, then the face has to keep up.”
Jackie then fills Janet in on the drama from last week, because it’s presumably going to continue to be the drama this week, so we need a refresher. Deep breath:
At a dinner party, Psychic Jackie told Lawyer Gina that her boyfriend in Miami was cheating on her, and that she knew this because Gina’s dead grandma was telling her. Gina then told super-rich Lydia that she didn’t believe that her boyfriend was cheating on her, but she went to Miami anyway, to double check. Then Lydia told told Jackie that Gina had said that she didn’t believe that Jackie really had talked to her dead grandma.
Keep breathing, we’re nearly there:
Jackie got really upset, so when Gina got back from Miami, she confronted her and told her that Lydia had told her that she said she didn’t believe what she had said about her cheating boyfriend. Then Gina said it’s not that she didn’t believe what Jackie had said, it was that she didn’t think Jacie had actually seen her dead grandmother, she thought Jackie had seen a demon. Then Jackie cried and that’s where we’re at.
So, not at all complicated.
“She thinks she’s got youse all under her thumb,” Jackie tells Janet (who’s still recovering from just having needles jammed into her head because youth). “The only person she doesn’t is me – the firecracker.”
I love how Jackie is constantly trying to brand herself. We GET IT babe – you’re the ‘spunky’ one.
Jackie tells Janet that she wants to give Gina a second chance though, so she has invited Gina to her housewarming party. Ah, so The Big Event where everybody dresses up and gets into a fight is going to be at Jackie’s this week. Janet says she definitely thinks Gina will come, because who would miss a ‘rock star’ party? And with that sentence, Janet officially became the first person besides Jackie to mention that Jackie is married to International Rock Star Ben Gillies.
Andrea and Lydia, probably the show’s two most out-of-touch-with-reality Toorak ladies. They meet in a shop in Toorak to buy a present for Jackie and International Rock Star Ben Gillies for this week’s Big Event; the housewarming. Money money shopping money money. Nothing’s happening, so we quickly move on.
Lydia says goodbye to Andrea and heads off to Gina’s ‘new apartment’. But it’s an odd situation in which they’re pretending like it’s her actual apartment but the graphic clearly states that they’re just walking around some random display apartment:
Details, shmetails, I guess.
Gina says that the apartment is actually for her two twenty-something sons to live in ‘as a bachelor pad’ and suddenly I want Gina to be my mum so bad I’m almost crying. Lydia is apparently there to give decorating advice because she’s getting a ‘high distinction’ in her decorating course, but she’s actually there so that Gina can drop the following bombshell: Gina has decided to break up with her man in Miami. But not because psychic Jackie told her he was cheating. It’s actually because “it’s geographically impossible.”
