Recap: "Girlfriend Confidential: LA" Season Premiere
NO SHADE but… this show trumps whatever it is that you are watching on T.V. right now. These women are absolutely FABULOUS and are bringing something new to our screens: a perfect mixture of sass, class, and (as Kelly would put it) crass. The four women all reside in LA and paint the town red with their red bottom Louboutins juggling love, career and family.
The episode begins with three of the girls (Denyce, Eva, and Kelly) doing what women love to do most: SHOPPING! Kelly finds herself stuck in the middle of what seems to be an on-going power struggle between Eva and Denyce. Denyce gets offended by Eva’s struggle with her age (who is currently “27 knocking on 32”). Denyce, who is actually 32, calls Eva out and while the girls go back and forth, Kelly is busy booking deals left and right on her phone. She’s not the only one getting coins while the other ladybugs bicker; Nikki Chu misses out on the girls’ shopping date, busying herself by going in for a business meeting! Within a 2-minute segment, Nikki manages to present designs and close a deal with Creative Recreation for a new women’s shoe line! Man, Miss Chu does not play.
Eva visits her parents’ home in South Central LA before heading to New York to do a runway show for fashion week. We get to see another side of Eva… actually we get to see another Eva as we meet Eva’s twin, her father Evan. Eva becomes child-like with her parents as she opens up about their family life and struggling with the hard recovery of her father’s stroke. We all see the pretty face and the fierce poses of Eva but never realize the story beneath but we got an idea as Eva still finds it hard dealing with her father’s aphasia.
On a lighter note, the girls all meet up for dinner before Eva’s trip to New York and here is where I realized how much I love these girls! The women indulge in a night full of life’s best gifts: food, wine, and sex talk! It is NO HOLDS BARRED when these women getting into sex talk. Denyce, the “crass” of them all, has no problem speaking about sex and even suggests to Eva that she should try oral sex. Denyce’s missing censor sends Kelly into a flurry and astonishment at how open these girls are about sex.
Quick question: did anyone else find Eva’s boyfriend Anthony hot? Eva, I think we figured out why your hoo hoo is going haa haa! Anyways, Eva prepares for her trip to New York and, for the first time ever, invites her boyfriend Anthony to watch her on the catwalk. Unforeseen circumstances (like a drunken night) prevent Anthony from making the trip to New York for Eva’s show. Although distraught, Eva knows the show must go on and struts her petite stuff up and down the catwalk reminding us of why she is where she is now! Eva is not the only one struggling with bf drama. Poor Nikki Chu has to deal with the messy drama of having her boyfriend want to commit enough to move in together but Nikki declines! It seems as though Miss Chu is running away from commitment and hiding in her career. Being the best at what you do is fine and dandy, but finding a man willing to take that extra step… well, it doesn’t come around too often (sorry guys!).
So far, I am sold on the idea of this show. Between the hilarious, girly interactions between the women and the drama with the boyfriends, I am looking forward to next week’s episode of GCLA. Oh and it gets more interesting as Denyce calls football star Terrell Owens out on something! Uh-oh! Seems like T.O. is in trouble but not in as much trouble as Denyce is in with Eva.
