The ladies are still in Mexico. Ramona sends a group text, sending a link to an article about anger issues. Luann cannot believe she sent that. Dorinda is going to freak. This is not the way they should try and talk to Dorinda. Minutes later, Dorinda comes in acting friendly and sarcastic. Ramona and Dorinda go at it while Sonya sits on the bed. Luann sits at the bottom of the stairs, listening and contemplating stepping in.

Downstairs, Luann and Dorinda sit and talk. Dorinda doesn’t want to talk about her issues. She feels attacked. She shuts it all down again. Leah arrives so Luann cannot say anything else. After a few minutes, she tries again. Dorinda lets her speak a little and then tells Luann she doesn’t want to go backward. Ramona and Sonya arrive. They all head to sit down for a special dinner being made for them.

The dinner starts off nice but quickly gets out of hand when Ramona complains her red wine is old and cold. Luann cannot take it. The conversation then changes to the text Ramona sent. Leah has no idea and didn’t get a text. Dorinda calls Ramona on leaving Leah out. The girls all then gang up on Ramona. Luann calls her fake for starting trouble and then coming to dinner and being all sweet. Sonya thinks Dorinda gets stressed because they allied her help and she is very giving. This makes all of them calm down a bit and get along.

The next morning, the ladies leave Mexico.

Leah meets with her team to start a new chapter for her company. It has been 15 years since she has been working on her line.

Ramona heads back to therapy where she talks about how she has changed her attitude towards men. She acts more like herself and has realized she doesn’t need a man. She recently went on a blind date and it went well because she acted like herself.

Luann is back working on her show. She wonders where Sonya is. She was supposed to show up to run lines. She calls Sonya who tells her she has her launch tonight. They make plans to meet later.

Leah and her mother meet up for their Tuesday night together. They talk about Leah’s drinking. Her mother does not like her to drink. Leah cries, telling her mom she feels guilty about how bad she was when she was a teenager. She has been drinking lately but it hasn’t been a problem. Her mother comforts her and tells her she loves her. There may be days she doesn’t like her but she loves her. Leah feels better.

Sonya meets with her team. It is the night of her launch party. Leah and the girls are there. They are waiting for her. She finally arrives. All of the girls are wearing clothes from her line. They all get photos together. Luann, Dorinda, and Leah talk about how Sonya blew off rehearsal earlier. Meanwhile, Ramona is drinking and eating. Sonya gives a speech. She thanks all of the ladies for their love and support.
