Circus team: Crobar. Bethenny meets with the contact at the Boys and Girls Club of America to educate herself about the charity. She asks what their monetary goal is. "Our fundraising events usually raise around a million dollars," the contact reveals. Beat. Bethenny boggles. Beat. "Wow," Bethenny says, and writes it down. Bethenny confessionals that she came to the realization that she was going to have to concentrate on the fundraising: "I'm not worried about the event. I think the event will go great -- I want to make some money." Yeah, this is going to go well. I can just tell.
Circus team: Big Apple HQ. Carrie and Hateful Jim work on the promo materials with a graphic designer. Hateful Jim explains that they are working on the promo materials with a graphic designer. There's an awful lot of repeating in this show. And in this recap. As Hateful Jim and Carrie drive somewhere, Carrie feels the need to bitch some more about Bethenny: "I know I don't need to say this, but I'm just going to say it so I feel better: how do you think it makes me feel that I went before people that are clearly less qualified and worked less hard." "I don't know -- it's awful. It totally sucks," Hateful Jim says, somewhat bored with her. "Now, at some point Bethenny has got to say, 'This is why you need to be on my side.' Like, she's gotta to justify to me why I have to be working for her, you know what I'm saying? She's gotta give me reason to believe that she will not take credit for work I did." Throughout that little diatribe, Hateful Jim was all, "Yeah. You're right. Uh-huh. Right." It was kind of funny. Carrie confessionals that she's on team with "the woman who stabbed [her] in the back" and that Bethenny should be really nervous: "She should be shaking a little bit." What should Bethenny be worried about, exactly? That you're going to intentionally pick a weird color scheme? Or intentionally add up numbers wrong? Because honestly, Carrie? I don't really remember much of what you did on this show. Besides, if Bethenny's shaking, it's because she mistakenly got a hold of some unrefined sugar. As they get out of the car, Hateful Jim puts his hateful arm around Carrie's shoulder and says, "Such a beautiful girl to hold such a grudge." Such an asinine man to be on my TV.Hateful Jim, Ryan, and Howie (in yet another bizarre sweatband) celebrate being back together again. They drink. And drink. And then? They drink some more. Amanda says something about Dawna busting Howie's chops. "She's not going to know nothin'," Hateful Jim blibbles, "she's not gonna know anything until you wake up at six AM with, like, vomit on your ear." Ryan and Howie find this utterly hysterical. The camera pans just beyond the kitchen to show Dawna studiously washing up. Because cleanliness is next to (im)Cloneliness. "See you in the morning," Dawna tells them, poking her head in the kitchen. "NO!" Hateful Jim responds, then becomes hysterical at his own wittiness. Ryan, Howie, and Hateful Jim proceed to wet themselves.
