RECAP: It’s the day after her big night and Heather is reviewing the night. She’s still hurt by Gretchen’s antics and possibly won’t invite her friend to another event any time soon. On another note, Heather’s relationship with her husband is improving. Still, that doesn’t quite heal the rift completely between them,

Alexis and Lydia meet up for some girls time. However once the door opens on the girls, things aren’t looking good. Lydia believes because everyone is in a good place right now it’s the best time to repair Alexis’s relationship with the other women.

Vicki goes to see Brooks. She is still trying to convince him to date her despite her children’s obvious disapproval. He invite for a little getaway but she can’t make it because she’s babysitting little Troy. She wants a rain check but he seems almost reluctant to give her one.

Tamra is speaking at an expose. She goes to see a speech expert beforehand because public speaking is her biggest fear. Her speech therapist advises her to speak openly about her own past in order to better identify with her audience.

Lydia and her husband are at home. They’re enjoying themselves when Lydia brings up the talk she had with her mom. She is very upset that she never could get her mom to give up drugs. Much less her mom believes Lydia is trying to control her.

Gretchen went to the doctor to see if she can have kids before they un-snip Slade. She is healthy but she is also older. So because of Gretchen’s age, the doctor recommends in-vitro instead of natural.

Vicki is excited for her daughter’s first night out post baby. Although there is some sad news. Her son-in-law has just been given orders about an 11 month deployment. Vicki didn’t regret her decision to watch the baby before and now she’s extra glad that she could be with the kids during this time.

Heather and her husband went out to dinner. Automatically her husband admits he was being a jerk. Heather felt that his actions seemed jealous. Also she hates that he threw out “Divorce”. He makes a heartfelt apology and Heather is in tears because that’s just what she needed.

Tamra is nervous. Not only is she going to tell some personal things but her mom just happens to be coming with her.
Lydia has her mom over to help her cook a meal. Lydia isn’t very domesticated so her mom’s help is necessary. Taking the time they have, Lydia semi-apologize to her mom if the other woman had ever felt judged. She hates her mom smokes pot but Lydia rather have her mom in her life then to push her away.

Up onstage, Tamra starts out straight away with both sides of her past. The good and the bad. She admits she tried to kill herself at 21 and that she used her body as a way to find love throughout her whole life because she wasn’t sure she was loved at home.

Afterwards, her mom assures her that her speech was good. Tamra asked her mom why neither of her parents didn’t tell her or her siblings they loved them. That’s just how her parents were raised but they do love their children. Tamra acknowledges she has always had a tough time in relationships because of her upbringing but she wants that to change.

In next week’s promo, its Tamra’s bachelorette party. Everyone is having fun except for Gretchen and Heather. Then there’s te confrontation between Alexis and Tamra. It’s looking like there will finally be peace. Then again its only looking that way.
