Season 8, Episode 5: ‘Poke Her, Again’
Previously on Ladies of Twitter…the Ladies became better acquainted and attempted to reach understandings after the drama of Apollo’s Birthday party. As Tyler dropped a bomb about Nick to Leah, Leah proceeded to take that back to Nick. Then, as Tanya’s Poker Night began, the tension in the air threatened to ruin the night before it had even begun.
Tyler: *walks to the bathroom and knocks* Sophie dear?
Sophie: *walks out* Hi Tyler! What’s up?
Tyler: Is everything okay? You seem off.
Sophie: Oh, everything is fine. Everything is totally fine. *whispers* The bathroom left much to be desired though.
Tyler: *laughs* Well let’s go enjoy Tanya’s lovely party. *walks back into the main room* Can I get another margarita? Wasted Tyler is coming to town!
Leah: Okay bitches, what are we playing first?
Brian: Strip poker!
Nick: Can we play strip old maid? I don’t know how to play poker?
Tanya: Okay ladies, before we start… I don’t know how to play poker so I invited a professional poker player to play with us & teach us. OR we can just drink and pretend like we know what we’re doing! *laughs*
Sophie: Some of these ladies are very good a poker. They love to poke, poke, and poke some more.
Leah Confessional: Sophie again is on one…. like she says the most stupid things out of nowhere! If I’m not mistaken everyone is being kind to her and she’s just so combative.
Nick: I’m all about drinking! But that should be obvious because I’m not the best influence *eyes dart to Tyler*
Brian: Oh boy…Tyler, let’s get you another margarita!
Tyler: *slurs* I’m already two and a half in plus the bottle between us in the car over here! You want to get me drunk, don’t you bitch? *laughs*
Nick: Yes, Brian. Get Tyler naked wasted!
Just then, a hunk walks in and asks the ladies if they are ready to learn how to play poker.
Brian: Dadddyyyyy’s here ladies!!! Woohoo!
Tanya: Everyone! Go to the poker table and he’s gonna teach us some things!
Nick: Ohh, Brian’s getting pregnant tonight!
Brian: *whispers to Nick* That guy is Tyler’s type! BALD!
Nick: Tyler, get your ass over here! Brian and I have another drink for you.
Tanya: I knew you ladies would love him! He’s HOT!
Just then, the Poker Player begins to dance on the table and rips off his shirt.
Tanya: He’s also a stripper, Ladies!
Brian: YASS! Get it Tyler! Go show him how you can do the splits!
Tyler: *takes off shoes and pops a split in the floor* YASS LADIES!! It’s a girl’s night! Now you see why my husband loves me. *winks*
Leah: *whispers* Ohhh, his package is very…small.
Nick Confessional: This poker party turned into a Poke-her party very fast!
Tanya Confessional: My goal for this party was to have FUN! I knew most of the ladies didn’t wanna play poker, so I hired a poker player & a stripper!
Sophie: *sitting in the corner with a glass of champagne*
Leah: So what the hell is up with you, Sophie?
Tanya: Yeah, I don’t know…she’s acting crazy. She’s not having any fun… I thought she would LOVE the stripper
Leah: You act as though we’re inconveniencing you the two times we’ve seen you, and to be honest, you’re killing the vibe of the party.
Nick: *goes over and stands beside Sophie* Leah, she feels bullied by you.
Sophie: I don’t need a patronizing headteacher to tell me how to act. You were hazing me at your party.
Leah: Bullied? By me? HOW? I didn’t do anything to this girl. I didn’t haze you, I don’t even know you!
Nick: *wraps arms around Sophie* Come on Sophie, let it all out, honey.
Leah: You came into my husband's party with your nose in the air being rude. I gave you what you gave me.
Tanya: SOPHIE, darling… if you’re gonna come to my party and start drama… then you can leave
Sophie: Oh sweetie, don’t play the victim. Saying I have an ankle bracelet?
Nick: Leah, you did seem a little standoffish.
Leah: I’m nobody’s victim bitch! I called it like I saw it. It was a playful joke, get over yourself!
Sophie: And Tanya, I would gladly leave, this shit looks like a drug-dealer’s house! After years of friendship? Come on now!
Tanya: Years of friendship, please *rolls eyes*
Tyler: Sophie, STOP! Your ass isn’t just leaving every party you fucking walk in to. TALK IT OUT!
Leah: You would think someone who has had as much legal trouble as you would be more receptive of kindness instead of being a bitch
Tanya: We are here to have fun! If you can’t do that, you can take your boring ass to the nursing home where your sugar daddy is!
Sophie: Tyler, no, I won’t have tweedle Dee and tweedle dumb do this. I have enough evidence for my story.
Tyler: Sophie. You’re being ridiculous and as your friend, I can say that. I also told Leah that she misbehaved, but you weren’t an angel
Sophie: Leah, you would know a lot about me, wouldn’t you? Google much?
Leah: DAMN RIGHT I GOOGLED YOU! We’ve all seen your mugshots by now!
Tyler: Just fucking move on with it. Stop with all these bullshit accusations all of you and have fun. Jesus Christ, fuck me
Tyler Confessional: I did not squeeze into these leather pants for this!
Sophie: Maybe you’re just a jealous bitch!
Leah: Jealous of what? Your prison record?
Sophie: *chuckles* You silly lady, yes, I’ve been to jail before. And?
Leah: There’s a difference between jail and prison Sophie. You went to prison!
Sophie: I went to jail. As if I need to explain my life to a bore like you, Leah. Just admit that you are just this little innocent bitch that you pretend to be.
Brian: Well, tonight has certainly been eventful! *laughs*
Leah: Listen, Sophie. I had no intention of ever being mean to you until you started with me out of nowhere so if my comment about the ankle bracelet felt like I was bullying then I’m sorry but you were being equally rude
Tyler: See Sophie, you can’t say things like that either! I’ve told Leah that she was wrong, but you can’t do shit like this
Brian Confessional: I’m glad Leah is finding herself and owning her shit. Hopefully, she will realize about other things in her life…or career.
Sophie: And the problem is? She knows everything about my life, my actions, and everything about me. Does she know when I’m gonna take a piss?
Tyler: SOPHIE! SNAP THE FUCK OUT OF IT. I LIKE YOU, BUT I DO NOT LIKE THIS.
Leah: *eye roll* What the fuck ever. Enough of this bitch. *walks away*
Sophie: Snap out of what? I’m sober!
Tyler: Snap out of your bullshit! The point here is to be drunk and merry! Not to bitch.
Nick: *lights a cigarette inside* Hope you don’t mind if I smoke.
Tanya: It’s fine, do whatever you want. At least you’re relaxed *laughs*
Sophie: Tyler, you’re being very rude. I’m about to apologize.
Nick: Can you believe the way these ladies behave?
Tyler: Then do! I told you, I like you a lot, but this demeanor isn't going to fly.
Sophie: Leah, I apologize if I was acting at your party. I guess I’m just a really great actress. *giggles*
Sophie Confessional: I know Tyler is trying to help but her presentation is really just off the rails. No need to shout or jump down my ear.
Tyler: I’m sorry for raising my voice in your home Tanya. I don’t normally behave that way
Nick: Well it’s understandable…I’m not the best influence, Tyler. So blame, your poor manners on me!
Brian: Nick, stop. STOP! *laughs*
Nick: Tyler, didn’t you say to Leah I’m a bad influence on Brian? Leah, care to tell your side to the group?
Tyler: Well that’s not quite how it went, but Leah and I, BOTH said we thought you were a bad influence on Brian, yes. But I also said that everyone is a grown woman that can speak for themselves and handle their own decision making
Sophie: Here we go again, round two! A story for TMZ *laughs*
Leah: All I said was Brian seems to act differently when you come around. And like I said Nick…it wasn’t meant maliciously.
Tyler: Further, I remember saying not the best influence, not a bad one…but if the shoe fits.
Brian: Really Leah? WOW WOW WOW!
Nick: Differently how? Fun? Carefree?
Tyler: Not the words I would use, but I’m enjoying my night. If you’d like to speak privately, we can at a later date.
Brian: No no no Tyler, that’s not fair. Speak your mind now. We’re not going to chat about this during pillow talk.
Nick: No, see we’re going to talk about it now.
Tyler: It’s also not fair to wait for me to be wasted and then say you want me to have a conversation about one sentence that I said once.
Nick: Yes Tyler, we’re all adults here. You can own it right now, and we can end it.
Tyler: Oh I chose to drink and I’m choosing to not have a conversation about a SENTENCE I said once while intoxicated. I must’ve hit a nerve, you’re the one upset Price.
Nick: I’m not upset, I just don’t like bullshit Tyler and that’s what I think you are.
Brian: You said what YOU SAID, Ty.
Nick Confessional: Tyler, you’re a real pussy. But you got the wrong one.
Tyler: I’ve literally said I said it three times now. What do you want? Me to spill my blood over the table for it
Tanya: Ladies…this is TOO much! Can we talk about this another time?
Tyler: That’s what I’ve been saying. These two want to start something now.
Leah: Okay, okay, okay. Let’s stop.
Nick: Tyler, we can have a private conversation, but let me just tell you, you got the wrong girl.
Tyler: *laughs* I am shaking honey. Trembling.
Nick: You should be!
Tyler: Maybe you got the wrong one, don’t let the exterior fool ya.
Sophie: Okay, stop Nick, that’s enough. It’s time for you and Brian to go.
Tyler: I’m leaving. I’m calling my own car. Thank you for having me Tanya *hugs Tanya* I’m going alone. I’m not doing any more of this shit tonight. *walks out to wait for his car*
Tyler Confessional: D-O-N-E DONE! These bitches can go fuck themselves. They want to start trouble at every turn and twist every word you used and I’m over it.
Nick: Brian, let’s go to Taco Bell.
Brian: YES! I need some real Mexican food, let’s go. Tanya, I’m sorry Tyler had to ruin the night, but I had so much fun.
Tanya: Oh no, Tyler didn’t ruin the night…don’t worry, but I’m glad you had fun Nick.
Nick: *gets in car with Brian* I’m craving a Baja Blast like you have no idea!
Brian: You know I love a good Baja Blast! Large please. *laughs*
Brian Confessional: Time to keep whooping it up at the Taco Bell!
As the scene shifts, night turns to day in Twitter as we see a restaurant in uptown Twitter, where we see Leah, Tanya, and Tyler getting seats at a table for lunch and greeting one another warmly as they sit down.
Leah Confessional: Last night’s poker party…excuse me… brawl party was such a mess! So a few of us are getting together to debrief and hopefully figure out what the hell is up with the others.
Leah: It’s been such a long morning, I’m just leaving the set.
Tanya: Yeah, I’m starving, I’ve been on the go all day. So Leah, what were you on set for?
Leah: My segment on Good Morning Twitter! I’m a correspondent.
Tanya: That’s great, congrats! I’ll have to check it out
Tyler: She’s amazing, great segments every time.
Tanya: Well anyway ladies, I hate to bring this up… but what the hell happened at my party?! You guys didn’t do anything wrong, but Sophie just started all this shit!
Leah: *sighs* I have to apologize, I’m so sorry for allowing that girl to take me to that place.
Tyler: Last night was crazy…as I told Sophie and I’ve told Leah, they both had issues in their delivery prior to And last night. I just don’t get why it was so hard to apologize *laughs*
Leah: I mean I gave her a real sincere apology and she muttered some half-ass apology. I just don’t get why she’s so rude
Tanya: She’s very entitled… honestly, she wasn’t like this when I first met her. I believe she means it.
Leah: Have you spoken to Brian, Tyler?
Tanya: Yeah, where doe she stand on this whole mess?
Tyler: I haven’t. Now Leah, you know you said the same thing I did! You kind of threw me under the bus with Nick *laughs*
Tyler Confessional: I Love Leah, but she had the same concerns as me. And then she makes it seem as though I said all this stuff about Nick alone. It was a conversation
Leah: I didn’t intentionally, I was just talking and it came out. I made sure to say it wasn’t malicious, but there was no stopping Nick.
Tyler: Leah! Now stop *laughs* You said the same thing as me
Leah: YES! Nick isn’t the best influence, I 100% agree!
Tyler: Okay exactly, it just seemed like I found myself alone in front of that bus last night
Leah: I’m sorry if it seemed that way, I didn’t mean to do that.
Tyler I appreciate that, thank you. They just wanted to go out at last night, and I wasn’t having it.
Leah Confessional: I know what it looks like but I truly didn’t mean to do that to Brian and both of us didn’t mean it to be negative towards Nick. But he put his spin on it
Tanya: Well I guess we all need to evaluate who our REAL friends are in this group. Because it seems like some people wanna have a go at all of us
Tyler: I have no issues. I told Nick I said it if he can’t handle “not the best” then that isn’t my problem
Tanya: So I’m confused with that situation, you all are saying that Nick isn’t a good influence?
Tyler: I personally just feel that way in terms of Brian. That’s the only way I’ve known him for years, through Brian’s events and what have you.
Leah: I haven’t known Nick for long but it is super interesting how Brian is defending him. It’s like he didn’t even take a moment to think of both sides of it
Tyler: It’s certainly something, I’ve always loved my cousin though. I meant or said not one negative thing about him. I just think Nick makes him act a certain way. *shrugs*
Tanya: When Brian and I went to an art gallery, Brian said that Nick was going to pay for his painting…maybe Nick has something on Brian? *flashback to an unaired scene where Brian says that the painting his is purchasing while be paid for by Nick*
Leah: Does he know where the bodies are buried? *laughs*
Tyler: Oh now honey, Brian is a rich bitch *laughs* I don’t think he’d need Nick paying his bills. Nick would need to learn to pay his own bills first.
Tanya: It seemed like Nick is like Brian’s sugar daddy… *laughs*
Tyler: Oh girl bye. I’ll reiterate, he’d need his own money for that. I know Dr. Price isn’t looking for a second wife.
Leah: *laughs* Stop it!
Tanya: Girl, all I can say is that’s what Brian told me… even if he’s joking their relationship is a bit odd. And it seems he takes up for Nick and doesn’t give you any credit, Ty. Obviously, you’re very loyal to him and you’ve helped him out a lot… why didn’t he say you helped him when he was down like he says about Nick?
Tyler: I don’t need the credit *laughs* I have the titles…cousin, the godmother, born like a sister. That’s what Nick wants *shrugs* I think he lived with Nick or something *shrugs* Brian has always known I’m a phone call away. Anytime. Any place. I’ll be there. I always stick up for him. Anyways, I’m having my perfume launch party soon! It’s going to be amazing!
Tanya: I’m sure it’ll be great, who’s coming?
Tyler: I was planning to have all the ladies, if they can’t behave themselves, then the door will say hello.
Tanya: Well this is your event and everyone should be respectful.
Tyler: Nothing’s sacred in this group *laughs* These women have ruined my store opening, my book reading, you name it. Leah’s birthday party last year, Brian’s babies’ christening, the list just goes on *laughs*
Tanya Confessional: Remind me not to invite the crazy bitches to any of my big events! *laughs*
Tanya: Sounds like they ruin lots of events *laughs* Well this was fun, let’s do it again soon!
As the ladies leave the restaurant, the cameras shift to another restaurant downtown where we see Sophie, Nick, and Brian meeting to catch up. They take their seats and greet one another before then ordering and settling in to chat.
Sophie Confessional: Today, I’m meeting up with Nick and Brian for lunch after the “Poker” party. After leaving the party and sleeping on it, I’ve come to the conclusion that I may have been a bit standoffish but my last name is Starz. *giggles* I plan on leaving today on a good note and having the girls know me a little better. I’m not a complete bitch, and if I am, I OWN it.
Brian: Wow, this is nice.
Nick: This is a cute little restaurant! I hope they passed their health inspection.
Sophie: *bows down* Ladies, I am Sophie Starz and I hope you will forgive me of my past actions.
Brian: Well… *bows* NAMASTE
Nick: I’m not bowing down for anyone, but Jesus.
Sophie: So, ladies I invited you here for one, to apologize if I’ve been acting a bit harsh and cold to you both. I’ve been kinda uptight lately.
Brian: Let’s get some drinks and get deeper into that. Girl you pulled a season 1 Snooki and came it hot and HEAVEY!
Nick: Yes! Let’s get a few bottles *snapping my finger to get the waiters attention* We will have 3 bottles and it will be on her tab *motioning over to Sophie*
Sophie: Yes, the best of the best for the three of us.
Nick: But don’t pull a season 2 Snooki and get arrested on the beach.
Brian: I’ll drink to that!
Sophie: I know I did. *giggles* I don’t have many girlfriends, so it was kinda a shock for me as I was blindsided that my past would be brought up.
Nick: So is there some truth to what was being said, Soph?
Sophie: Yes, I was arrested before because my then-husband and I got into a fight and I was arrested for attempted burglary. Did I have the intent to hurt? No. Was I going to take anything? Possibly. *smirks and then takes a drink*
Brian: Well I’ll drink to that also! You’re a crazy bitch but so are we!!
Sophie Confessional: Everyone in life makes mistakes. Okay, I get it! I was blindsided by the beef, but that doesn’t explain anything. Being in jail taught me that life isn’t glamorous on the other side. They really go through some rough things in there.
Nick: Lord have mercy…so do you have a mugshot? Did you pistol-whip somebody?
Brian: Did you slash his tires?
Sophie: Oh no, that’s what the Butler was for! Anyways, I was a crazy bitch.
*laughs* I wasn’t on house arrest, nor did I have on an ankle bracelet. It was an accessory that I paid for in Paris. And why take a mugshot when you have beautiful stills?
Brian: *laughs* This is too good!
Nick: I mean, I didn’t think mugshots were optional.
Sophie: They aren’t. *giggles* I’ll leave that to your imagination. *finishes the glass of champagne* So ladies, what the hell was that at the party? Tyler is your cousin right Nick?
Nick: Fuck no! I’d hang myself if I were related to him.
Brian: HA! He’s my baby cousin.
Sophie: Ohhhh! You guys do kinda favor each other Brian. So, not to sound messy or anything, but does she always act that way when she drinks? Loud and obnoxious?
Nick: Yeah, why is that, Brian?
Nick Confessional: This Sophie isn’t so bad…dare I say it, she’s likable?
Brian: Listen, I don’t want to talk bad about my cousin…but I think Nick can tell you what happens when Tyler drinks? Right Nicholas? What did you say the other day? “Finally I can meet fun Tyler?”
Nick: Yes, Tyler is a bit of a bore when he’s sober. That and a bit of a cry baby.
Sophie: I’ve recently met Tyler and she’s kinda taken me under her wing which is fine, but after the party, when she drinks she becomes quite dismissive and rude like she was to Nick. And she even was yelling down my ear telling me to apologize when she was the next person in line in the middle of shit. *laughs*
Nick: I don’t think Tyler is used to anyone challenging him. But I’m just not the bitch to sit down and be quiet.
Brian: All I will say Sophie is be careful who you trust.
Sophie: *eyes widen* In Tyler or with Tanya? I hope Tanya has betrayed me in any shape or form after I wrote the check for her salon as a generous donation. I suppose the two T’s are sneaky snakes?
Nick: Don’t trust this bitch *pointing my thumb towards Brian sitting beside me* He’s shady as fuck.
Brian: I’ll throw anyone out a window!
Brian Confessional: I like people I can be silly and act goofy around. I like Sophie!
As the ladies sit and continue chatting and laughs, the cameras shift outward, giving a glimpse of all of Twitter as the scene and episode end.
Next time on Ladies of Twitter…some of the women reunite in an attempt to rehash and resolve the events of Poker Night. Elsewhere, the ladies hope to put the issues of the past behind them and come together once more. As Tyler’s Perfume Launch begins, the drama quickly follows, leaving the even in jeopardy.
