So the new plan is to go to Palm Springs!
Two weeks later (are you keeping track of this?) Kathy calls Suzanne Somers, who apparently lives in Palm Springs. When Kathy explains about the Palm Springs Walk of Fame, Suzanne laughs at her. Open mockery! But this does not deter Kathy from asking Suzanne to introduce her at the Palm Springs Walk of Fame Induction Ceremony that Saturday. Suzanne begs off, claiming that she'll be in LA that day. But Suzanne agrees to give Kathy a dinner party on Friday. But it'll be organic, because that's what Ms. Somers is into. Kathy isn't allowed to bring diet soda, which she appears to like very much.
Kathy explains Suzanne's whole deal, but I wasn't really listening. I'd rewind, but the last words Kathy says are "it combines mid-life lady times with lotions", and I figure that's all I really need to know.
That Friday (we are to assume), Kathy goes to the Somers compound without Tom and Tiffany. Suzanne rides a funicular car down to greet her, and it's pretty silly. Apparently it's a long trip up the mountain to the house, so she likes to have a funicular. Suzanne and Kathy get to the house and Kathy is welcomed by Alan, Suzanne's fella. Kathy offers to help with the cooking, but she's told to stay out of it. Then there's a tour of Suzanne's incredible Crib, complete with anecdotes about Frank Sinatra, Merv Griffin, and Barry Manilow. It's pretty impressive.
Kathy and Suzanne sit on a tasteful piece of lawn furniture and we enter the Talk Show segment. Kathy is lavishly impressed by the way Suzanne paved the way for women in sitcoms standing up for their fair share of the money. That's a whole complicated story, incidentally. I don't have time to go into it.
The tour continues, and Suzanne shows off her huge vegetable garden. Kathy claims that junk food makes her feel better than vegetables. Their discussion quickly reveals Kathy's lies about having supposedly already given up diet soda. Kathy promises to give up diet soda for thirty days, and we immediately see her drinking some in an interview where she claims to be giving up joy.
