Back at the bakery signing, Kathy and Rich show up, with their book in tow. Everything seems to be going okay until Kathy mentions her dessert tasting at the other bakery. Teresa says she'll be there, but has a weird look in her eyes, and then starts talking about all the dessert recipes in her cookbook. They flip through the pages and Kathy is like, "Oh! My mother's pizzelles," and "Oh! My mother's cookies." In an interview, Teresa assures us that Kathy is crazy and passive-aggressive and that these are HER mother's recipes. I'm sure there's some insane previous generation feud about the cookie origin. And what's more, Teresa has even more dessert recipes for her next cookbook. Outside, Kathy is like, "I didn't even know she could bake! Good for her!" but she obviously is not entirely pleased.
And then it is time for Kathy's crunk little dessert tasting. Her kids are outside holding a hand-written sign, and Rosie helps hang up some flags. I will say that Kathy's desserts look awesome. Kathy and Rich talk about who is coming to the tasting, and Rich says that he hopes Teresa doesn't come, largely because she's a horrible person. Kathy maybe kind of agrees. The entire Manzo family shows up to the tasting, and Jacqueline, and the Gorgas. Kathy hands out little rating forms for everyone. Poor Lauren feels weird eating actual food in public. And then Teresa shows up, with her friend Linda. Their parking lot conversation is about how Kathy has stolen Teresa's recipes, which were handed down from HER mother. Teresa is not going to bring it up today, though, or so she claims.
The Manzo clan is very curious about who Teresa's new sidekick is, and Jacqueline recognizes her as someone who is prone to defending Teresa. Jacqueline says that Teresa would rather have soldiers than friends. I don't know, I don't think it's such a horrible thing to hang around friends who don't hate you. You can call it a skillful tactic if you want, but it also might just be basic common sense. Teresa then tells us that her kids have had nicer signs at their lemonade stands than Kathy does at her tasting. I mean, she has a point. Learn how to use Microsoft Word, people! Oh God, and then Linda asks Kathy where she got all of her recipes. Kathy says that she just came up with them, and Linda then asks, "They're not family recipes or anything?" Oh, stay out of it, person we don't know. Linda's final word on the situation is that she doesn't eat dessert. Kathy tells us that she's seen skinny bitches who may look great but are miserable inside. Eat a cupcake, she says! I am certainly with her on that.
