Ashley decides to do some damage control and tells Bret that while she and James have a "really good relationship," she's sure he'll say some things about her that she hopes Bret will be able to overlook. Ashley interviews that she will always love James, since he's her son's father and the love of her life. But she hopes he'll keep his mouth shut.
He won't. Now he's telling Heather that he's sure Ashley will want him over Bret now that he's on the scene. He says he guarantees that Ashley hasn't had sex with Bret. Who should I believe, James or Kami? Kami. Meanwhile, Royal T just keeps jumping up and dancing around and commenting on all this controversy. He amuses me, so I call him by his real name.
Bret "decides" to leave the girls in the room by themselves. Of course, that just means that he's watching everything in his secret lair on a monitor. On this show, true love means never having to say you've got cameras hidden in the corner of the room watching your every move. Ashley is worried about what Heather and Ambre will dig up on her, while Beverly in the corner having her own private meltdown. She interviews that her ex "doesn't have enough respect" for her to come on this show. On the contrary, I think that means he has a lot of respect for her. Alan is a prize, you guys. Beverly starts ranting and raving while Bret watches with his concerned face on. Taya interviews that she doesn't know what to think about how upset Beverly is about this. Wisely, she takes the alcohol away from Beverly. Unwisely, she asks Beverly to hold hands with her. Beverly starts yelling and screaming about that, and this is why people don't show up to help her out on reality shows. Meanwhile, awesome Ashley offers assistance the best way she knows how: "would you like a shot of alcohol?" So formal, yet so trashy at the same time. Bret thinks Beverly should be happy that her ex isn't here, and he's confused as to why she's upset.
