"Second Chances" Season 3, Episode 6

Heidi sucks. Somewhere in the deep, dark recesses of my mind I held out hope that Heidi was redeemable. When we first met her she seemed like a naive young woman who was easily led astray by the men she dated. "She's young," I said. "She can be forgiven." Heidi seemed to learn her lesson from dating what's-his-name (sorry, I really don't remember) in the first season. She vowed to be a better friend to Lauren and to never get so wrapped up in her relationship that her friends suffered. And then came Spencer. She fell for him hard and fast, but a light appeared at the end of the tunnel when Spencer was exposed for what he really was. Still, Heidi took him back and now they're engaged. But wait: Then Heidi showed a spark of individuality and maybe even defiance when she painted her apartment all white, covering up Spencer's precious art. So I thought there was hope. But now I'm done with hope. I can't believe she stabbed Elodie in the back like that. I'm fine with her going for the job, but she should have been upfront with her coworker. It's the decent thing to do. I'm finally ready to say I think Heidi is as bad as Spencer. At the rate she's going she won't have any friends left to ask to be her bridesmaids. Heidi's out of chances with me. Hello, bombshell... well, sort of. For any of you out there addicted to Perez Hilton, as I will admit I am, (or you caught the "this season on " clips) you knew there was some sort of reunion between Lauren and her bad-boy ex Jason. I liked their little rendezvous. Jason looks healthier and hopefully his reappearance in her life won't cause too much drama. I do worry about Lauren, though. She's admitted that she allowed herself to fall for him and get swept up. Now she claims she's being cautious, but I think her eyes are giving her away. You can tell she still cares deeply for Jason and I think her facials are indicating that there are still some deep feelings there. We'll just have to wait and see. He's allowed his second chance. For now. And the never-ending saga that is Audrina and Justin Bobby. I might be wrong but tonight, for the first time, I felt like the editors of this show might be telling parts of the story out of order. Based on what we saw two weeks ago I thought Audrina had a much stronger reason for not taking Justin Bobby's calls than she did this week. I mean, I'm not a fan so I'm fine with her taking his calls never. That's another relationship that I just don't get. He should be out of chances by now. Sigh. Will we ever learn? I'm talking about both boys and girls here. I mean, what was that with Derek? During his first date with Lauren he told her he liked her more than any other girl he's dated? What was that line about him dating a girl in high school for seven years? Was he serious about asking Lauren to marry him? I'm pretty sure he was just playing to the camera, but dude, chill. Lauren's never "wanted to stab herself in the eye more" and if that line works on someone, good luck. I want to say something really snobby about bridge-and-tunnel people here since Derek's from New Jersey. But OK, that was snarky enough and I don't mean to imply everyone from the Garden State is like Derek. I know they're not. Interesting L.A. digs: Equinox - I think not belonging to a gym is deemed as bad as being a smoker. Everyone does it here. Lola's - looked like a great place for a date. Next time, maybe the ladies will choose their men more wisely. Champman Coffeehouse - A "quaint" little meeting place for Lauren and Jason. It looked cute. If you'd like to share, please feel free to do so below. I'd love to hear your thoughts about Heidi and Lauren's behavior. Work questions: Have you ever stabbed a coworker in the back for a promotion? Is it ever acceptable to sabotage someone at work? Personal-life questions: Do you think it's too soon for Lauren to see Jason again? What would someone you love have to do for you to cut the cord? Please feel free to pose your own questions as well.
