Lauren and Brody are hanging out in the tiny pool in Lauren's yard. Brody asks her: "Why you banging Justin Bobby?" Hee! Sometimes I enjoy Brody. I know he's the prototype for a certain kind of douchebag, but there's something so... ridiculous about him and he almost seems like he gets it sometimes. SOMETIMES! I don't love him or anything. Lauren says the whole thing is disgusting and embarrassing. Brody thinks she might just need to let it go, and let Audrina go. Brody counsels her to not waste her energy hating Audrina, and to let the drama go. Lauren can't see why this is a good thing, and Brody explains to her that she'll be better off without Audrina in her life, since Audrina has obviously changed for the worse. Lauren claims that she's already let Audrina go, but Brody knows that she really hasn't. I'm feeling very strange that I'm mostly agreeing with Spencer and Brody so far in this episode. I miss the days when I mostly agreed with Lo.
Audrina's house. Her sister Casey and her horrible tattoos are hanging out on the couch. They're going over decorating ideas, but of course Audrina brings the conversation around to JB again. She's distressed that he hasn't called her back or tried to contact her, and then she starts detailing all of the reasons why he sucks. To wit: he's manipulative, he's cheated on her before (she doesn't say this but she alludes to it), and he seems to enjoy seeing her hurt. So why does she want him to call exactly? Audrina claims to understand why Lauren is upset. Casey is too nice to say that Audrina should apologize, but when she says, "[Lauren] won't forgive you for being the victim until you apologize to her." How is Audrina the victim here? Ugh. You know who Audrina should be mad at? Stupid Dino who started the rumor in the first place. Audrina is scared to apologize, which is probably a sign that she knows she's wrong.
Spencer, Heidi, and Stephanie arrive at Nana's house. On their way in, Spencer gives Stephanie shit about her outfit. Once they arrive, Spencer makes a big deal about how Stephanie hasn't seen her grandmother in FIVE YEARS! Okay, she lives in Huntington Beach -- it's not like she lives in Japan or something. There is no excuse. There's also no excuse for how shitty Spencer is to his sister, but that's a whole other story we don't have time to get into right now. Everything Spencer says is meant to emphasize how terrible Stephanie is, and it's very awkward because it's one thing to create your fake drama for your stupid reality show but it's another thing to draw your poor grandmother into it. Spencer even tries to get Nana involved in the whole Stephanie/Lauren/Speidi triangle. Nana just wants her grandchildren to get along and be happy, and she lectures Stephanie on how she should trust her brother. Has she met Spencer? Nana manipulates Stephanie into another visit tomorrow, and I think I'm supposed to feel bad for Stephanie here, but I don't. She sucks, and Spencer sucks. The jury's out on Nana.
