When they get to work, CJP gives Theo a little lecture about how to talk to Tonya. CJP wants Theo to be gentle with his words. Okay, except for the boning part, I didn't see what he said that was so upsetting, especially if Tonya claims it's not true. She would only get that upset if she was lying, and he busted her. Theo is angry that there are things he's not allowed to say to Tonya. CJP tells Theo that he doesn't understand. Meanwhile, Tonya tells Chris that she doesn't need this, and she doesn't need to "live with a black guy who's going to call [her] a bitch every time he feels it's necessary." Interesting that she called Theo "a black guy," isn't it? Not just "a guy" or even "a jerk" or "a dicksmack." No, "a black guy." That was also so the scene where Tonya says, "I'm going back to Walla Walla" in the previews for the season, but they didn't show that line. Bitches. That's my favorite.
Tonya picks Justin up at the airport. For someone who spends so much time in a tanning bed that he takes his phone calls there, he doesn't look that tan. They're all smoochy smoochy and I'm all pukey pukey. In an interview, Tonya says that Justin's presence was comforting. On the El, Tonya tells Justin about her fight with Theo. Tonya says that she wishes she hadn't let Theo get to her, but he was "in that closed van, sitting right next to [her], yelling at [her]." Okay, he wasn't really yelling. Then, Tonya claims that Theo was "totally in [her] face," which he so wasn't. He was looking straight ahead the whole time, and never so much as leaned on her. In an interview, Tonya says that Justin "likes to take care of women," and gets upset when he can't control a situation. At Justin's hotel, Tonya says that she's avoiding taking him back to the house because she doesn't want him to have words with Theo. So, what she's really saying is, "I really wish you would talk to Theo, but I don't want to make it out like I'm asking you to, but if you were a man, you would." Note: I am not saying that Justin is any less of a man for letting Tonya fight her own fucking battles -- I'm just trying to represent Tonya's train of thought. Justin says that he's pissed at Theo, and will have words. Tonya says that she wants him to, but she doesn't want things to get worse for her. Of course, she doesn't care if Theo beats Justin's ass.
