FIDM. Lauren hangs out with Stephanie between classes. Stephanie is shocked that Holly is crashing at Lauren's house, and sort of cackles gleefully, since she knows it will create a lot of problems. You can tell that Stephanie is one second away from texting Spencer to tell him about it and start the drama. Lauren says that she really doesn't care what Heidi thinks. Thank God!
Is it just me or are there like 25% more commercials in this show lately? I don't mind, believe me. But when I go to fast-forward, it goes on and on. Holly, Lauren and Lo are in the kitchen gabbing. They discuss how ridiculous it is that Spencer complained about Holly, since he stayed with his own sister for a while. Lo tells Holly that she doesn't need to clean at all. You know they totally have a cleaner, because that house is huge and I can't exactly see Lauren with some rubber gloves, scrubbing the toilets. Holly says that Heidi has been her best friend forever, but now they're not talking. Holly is FURIOUS! Lauren makes excuses for Heidi for some reason. Holly also can't believe that Heidi encouraged her to come out and then blew her off like this. Lo asks if Spencer is actually mean to Holly, and Holly says he was mean "openly and unabashedly." I'm impressed with Holly's vocabulary. Are we sure she's related to Heidi? Like, by blood? Anyway, Lauren says that she knows it was all Spencer's doing, because he's determined to drive away anyone that cares about Heidi.
Heidi and Spencer's apartment. Spencer is psyched for Heidi to return to work, so she won't be moping around their apartment anymore. Stephanie shows up and Spencer has to make a comment about a "mooch sister." Stephanie asks if Heidi has talked to Holly and then drops the bomb that Holly is staying with Lauren. Spencer thinks that Heidi's "stalker mom" orchestrated the whole thing. Heidi doesn't think so. Spencer then thinks that Lauren is trying to get good karma by taking in Holly, whom Spencer views as a problem child. Heidi gets pissed and says that Spencer is being really insensitive, since Holly was practically living in the streets (I'm so sure). Spencer says that Holly is the problem here, and Heidi shouts, "Maybe you're the problem!" Stephanie looks back and forth from Heidi to Spencer and practically rubs her hands together with glee. How awkward. If my brother and sister-in-law were squabbling like this, I would just walk away. Or lock them out of the apartment, like I did to my best friend and her boyfriend when they would not stop bickering. Because, seriously. Have some manners.
