The next day, Audrina meets ShePratt at her apartment to rehash the date with Derek. Audrina says he was courteous, funny, lovely -- "everything JB never was" being implied. ShePratt picks up on the subtext and dishes thedirt that JB didn't show for his date with Kristin at Brody's party. Gives new meaning to Kristin's initial assessment of JB as a "stand-up guy." Audrina is immeasurably pleased. ShePratt, who is loving her new position as the judge rather than the judged (didn't I say earlier that there's a first for everything?), gets a little cocky. She snots, "It's so karma," like any great friend would, then corrects herself, "It's not even karma, it's trying to date Justin."
Kristin's. BS sips a cocktail at 10 a.m. as Kristin comes down the stairs complaining about her hangover. Kristin turns the conversation to Brody. BS notes how he and Jayde fight all the time and that Jayde doesn't seem to have much of a taste for Kristin. Kristin says part of it stems from her closeness with the MILF. BS wonders why Kristin and Brody aren't dating. Kristin says they broke up for a reason, though she doesn't elaborate. BS asks if Kristin's talked to JB and if she's mad that he flaked out. Kristin is no fool. She realizes that this is the same shit he pulled with Audrina. BS speculates that JB may just pull these shenanigans so he can push the envelope with whoever he's screwing (over) at any given moment. Kristin resolves not to put up with JB's crap, nor to wait around for him. "Strike one," she declares, and my beloved Kelly plays us out, singing "Goodbye's on the tip of my tongue."
Next week: Drunk Holly! She's the most fun! More love triangle lunacy between Kristin, JB, and Audrina, including a home-cooked dinner (watch for stray beard hairs!), mandatory Brody meddling, another appearance by boring old Derek, and another denial-declaration one-two punch from JB: "Me and Kristin aren't together. I would never be able to say anything was better than Audrina Patridge, ever in my life."
