Little Women La: Season-3, Episode-10 “Bachelorette or Bust”
On tonight’s episode, the women bust out the bikinis and booze to celebrate Elena’s upcoming vow renewal with the bachelorette party she never had. As the girls play steamy bachelorette party games, Brittney surprises the girls when she breaks down over her ex-boyfriend. And Briana drops the mother of all secrets that could cause a major rift between the girls forever. So let’s recap a few highlights of Episode-10, “Bachelorette or Bust.”
It’s time for Elena bachelorette party! Terra and Tonya are planning a Palm Springs getaway, but they have strict instructions — it can’t be tacky. After their day at the track, the group is on the outs with Briana, who Tonya is particularly angry with for not showing up at day 3 of her video shoot. As for Terra, she’s convinced that all of Briana’s issues stem from her relationship with Matt.
Meanwhile, Elena’s invites Briana over for a poolside chat at her home. Since the blowup at the race track, Elena wants to support Briana. She also wants to invite her to the bachelorette party, no matter what the rest of the group thinks. Of course, Briana is hesitant to attend, considering she was booted out of the last event by Terra. In the end, Elena promises to talk to the rest of the girls to make sure no one confronts Briana about Matt on the trip. Briana promises to give Elena an answer in the morning.
Across town, Christy’s spending some bonding and shopping time with her daughter, Autumn. Apparently, both of them are getting surgery soon – neck for Christy, and legs for Autumn. Little Autumn’s scared about having surgery, which will be a procedure that breaks her legs, then reassembles them with plates and screws in order to prevent further bow-leggedness in the future. Autumn also questions her mom, Christy about why she wants a baby at such a critical moment in her life and Christy promises to talk to Todd about putting artificial insemination on hold.
Elena is packing for the trip when Terra shows up to review the rules of bachelorette weekend. Elena’s number one rule is, No Strippers! Oh, and no dildos either. Then, Elena tells Terra she wants Briana to come along, but they have to promise not to bring Matt up. Terra swears that it will not be her who brings up Matt.
The group arrives in Palm Springs, along with Terra’s sporting corn rows. The house is beautiful, Brittney and Jasmine roll in, with Christy and Elena following closely behind and Briana showed up last. The ladies congregate by the pool and Terra tells Briana she knows they didn’t end things well at the track, but she just wants everyone to get along this weekend. Terra assures her she only cares about her happiness. In addition, she tells hers, they can’t offer support because she shuts her friends out. Briana breaks down in tears, confessing that there’s been “a lot going on” that she’s been keeping it bottled up inside.
Next, Elena comes out to announce that her wedding will take place in Russia – WTH!? She’s calling it a “destination wedding.” Sidebar: Oh wow, $5000/person to fly to your friend wedding, nice if you have the coins and I’m wondering if Lifetime will foot the tab. Anyway, Elena’s just joking but she’s actually planning on Hawaii. Jasmine says she already knows she won’t be able to go, but graciously tells Elena she’ll run it by her hubby anyway. The camera pans to inside the house, Jasmine asking Briana about her discussion with the ladies outside. Briana reiterates that she feels hurt by the lack of acknowledgment about her wedding, while everyone is going gaga over Elena’s vow renewal.
Terra surprises them by taking the group out to a drag show, which is actually a super fun choice for any bachelorette party – wild or tame! Elena gets dragged up to the stage to shake her thang, then do a celebratory shot. The ladies join her on stage for some dancing and screaming, then decide to take the party back to the pool. Elena is having a fun night and is grateful for Terra’s planning. Back at the house, Terra strips down to the nude diving into the pool and Briana leaves. The next morning, Jasmine calls her husband, Chris to discuss Hawaii. He encourages her to go, but will not be able to take off work.
The ladies minus Christy and Briana head out to the grocery store later to grab a few ingredients for Tonya’s “famous barbecue chicken.” Inside the store, they ham it up in the store a bit, then discuss how much fun their night out was. Elena asks what Terra and Briana were talking about last night, but Terra flat-out refuses to discuss Briana in front of the group – more specifically, in front of Jasmine. Meanwhile, back at the house, Christy and Briana take the opportunity to have a heart to heart. Christy says it’s been really hard contacting her lately, and she feels pushed away. Briana wishes she could turn to Christy, but confesses she just feels 100 percent unsupported. Christy explains, she was initially supportive, but since Matt’s drinking and penis pics surfaced, not to mention his sketchy background, she just can’t offer that same level of support any longer. Briana says she wants to feel happy about her wedding, but even her parents have basically written her off.
“I feel like everyone is just attacking my relationship because of a stupid mistake,” she cries.
She confesses Matt feels horrible that her friends are attacking her because of his behavior. Christy apologizes for hurting her and promises to support her decisions.
Night two of Palm Springs will be indoor fun for the ladies. The ladies play an erotic Q & A game where we learn TMI about the ladies. Brittney reveals her past relationship woes and the ladies rally around her to offer support. The party moves poolside as they chow down on Tonya’s barbecue. Because of the love they just showed Brittney inside about her ex, Briana feels like this might be the right time to divulge her own secret to the group. Working up the nerve she reveals the news: She and Matt are ALREADY MARRIED! Sidebar: Congrats Briana!
Needless to say, Briana news doesn’t go over well, as expected, Tonya sighs, “wow,” while Terra claims “I knew it!” Terra wonders what else Briana may be keeping from them? Apparently, Briana’s family already knows. She explains she didn’t tell them because, despite what Christy says, she didn’t feel like anyone in this particular circle would have been truly happy to see her walk down the aisle. However, she still wants to have a proper ceremony. Of course, Jasmine lets everyone know she was in on the secret. As the ladies offer Briana reluctant hugs, Christy says she’s hurt that Briana didn’t feel comfortable enough in their friendship to share this news earlier.
Tonight’s episode ends with Elena waking up still angry over Briana announcing her marriage secret at her vow renewal party. So on this beautiful morning she tells Briana that despite the ladies congratulating and hugging her last night, it was all just an act. That she (Elena) made them all promise to be nice to her on this trip. Basically, her timing was off and hopes she finds the balance between caring about what people think and what makes her happy without sacrificing true friendship. The scene ends with Elena coldly telling Briana she has nothing more to say except she’s really disappointed with her. Damn!
