This week’s episode starts with Dallas in a dreadful state of mind over the opening of her new crystal shop named A Crystal Cup of Crystals. This is the fist time she has ever experienced an undertaking this large and as luck would have it, a strong mentor in Joy Behar. Dallas cast a crystal statue of her support system, Joy so she can talk to her when she needs a friend. The store opening went off like a charm until Dallas runs into an old sorority sister who tells her she is sleeping with her ex-husband.
It’s a good thing Dallas can talk to her Joy Behar friend as she looks up to her and is able to walk away from the incident without engaging with the old caddy sister with her head held high and feeling good about herself. The thought passes through her mind that this is Dalia’s mom and the way they handle drama is way different as she becomes hopeful for Dalia.
Meanwhile, the scene moves to Tessa and George as Tessa is extremely distressed because George won’t buy her a vehicle because she can only use the Prius on the weekends. She really gets hyped up when he tells her she can buy her own car if she wants one. The next day, Tessa begs Dallas for a job at “A Cup of Crystals.” Not only does Dallas give her a job, she also gets a sign on bonus, an advance on her pay, and a manicure. Tessa is taken by her generosity, but is thrilled that she has enough money to get her new ride, a scooter. Needless to say, George was not amused.
George is convinced something is wrong with Tessa as he thinks she is acting very withdrawn around him. When he comes across an old poem that Tessa wrote about an inspiring girl growing up without a mother, he decides that is the reason she has been exhibiting the indifferent behavior lately. He believes this is the most reasonable explanation and that not having a mother figure in her life as she grows up is affecting her. Because of his concern, George pays Tessa’s grandmother a visit in hopes that he can get some information about Tessa’s mother and where he might find her. It’s unfortunate that her grandmother refused to give out any information and tells George that he needs to deal with his insistence for sole custody of Tessa and put any idea of seeing her mother out of his mind.
George decides to talk to Tessa about the meaning of the poem, but she insists that the only reason she wrote it was for a good grade, and it has no real meaning. According to Tessa, she never has any thoughts of her mother and she seems as though she is telling the truth. While George is content with Tessa’s response, the grandmother has second thoughts about George’s visit. It looks like Tessa and her mom may reunite.
