Season 8, Episode 6: ‘The Woes of Friendship’
Previously on Ladies of Twitter…the Ladies’ Poker Night sees trouble as past issues and remarks between Sophie, Leah, Nick, and Tyler turn the night into a screaming match. Then, as the ladies meet with their friends in the group, they attempt to rehash and better understand as sides begin to form.
As the episode begins, we see shots of Twitter’s scenery as the Ladies are going about their day to day routines. The cameras then shift to a Birkin store in the shopping district of Twitter where we see Leah shopping around and checking out different bags that they have in this store. Just then, Brian walks in and greets Leah as she asked her to tag along on the shopping trip.
Leah Confessional: Brian and I are meeting today to shop! I want to clear the air and make sure he knows I’m not trying to be rude towards him regarding Nick. I just hope he is receptive of it
Brian: Hi dolllyyy! *kisses Leah* How are you?
Leah: I’m fab, how are you love? How are things going with the show’s premiere?
Brian: Exhausted, but good. *laughs* It’s coming along little by little. So many haters out here in Twitter.
Leah: Yeah, it’s rough out there. I can’t wait for it.
Brian: Aww, well thanks. So we’re here to find you a new bag?
Leah: Yes, I need a new pick me up! Considering you have 100 of them I figured you’d be a good come along *laughs*
Brian: *Laughs* it took me forever to get my collection! You’re still young! When you're my old age you will have just as many! *sits in a chair* Susan, can you grab us two glasses of champagne?
Leah: Cheers boo! So have you talked to Tyler at all? Game night was…intense.
Brian: Nope. I’m sorry for getting so upset with you. I heard the story wrong. I thought you were more involved than you actually were. If Tyler was able to tell you hun, he could have told me and brought it to my attention.
Leah: It’s ok I can see how it can be that way. But I have to tell you like I told Nick, Tyler didn’t mean it badly. I mean, you’re not wrong, but come on…you know he’s not malicious. He has your best interests at heart.
Brian: I mean hun, let’s not get into. I don’t want this to hurt our friendship. Have you hung out with the other girls recently?
Leah Confessional: Brian is hellbent on not hearing me. I feel like deep down he knows Tyler didn’t mean anything bad by the comment but something is blocking it
Brian Confessional: I’d honestly rather eat glass than talk about Tyler. — Tyler didn’t invite me over for Easter, no cards? No calls? Who is Tyler theses days?
Leah: I have! I had lunch with Tanya and Tyler. Tanya is fabulous!
Brian: Ohh good!
Leah: What do you think about…Sophie? Am I being mean?
Brian: No not at all! I love Sophie! She’s a real girls girl! Nick and I are huge huge HUGE fans! It took me a while clearly! I accused her of doing cocaine, now, I’m asking her who her dealer is! *Laughs* I joke, I joke
Leah: I’m waiting to see that honestly. *finds a gorgeous pink Birkin bag* Oh, this one is so beautiful! This is the one, box it up for me, please. Thanks for coming with me! I’ve been wanting to ask if you’d be open coming by to Good Morning Twitter and sitting in on my segment. I don’t know if you’ve had time to see it but I’d love your feedback
Brian: Well I’m glad you got a new bag hun! And of course, I have some time this week and then next month! Just let me know whether you find a day.
Brian Confessional: I would love to sit in on Leah’s segment. Can she handle my feedback!? We will find out! *winks*
Brian: Okay, I’ve got to run hun, this was fun!
As the scene shifts and the ladies leave the Birkin store, we transition to a restaurant where lunch is being served to many people. Just then, we see Tyler taking a seat in the restaurant and ordering a glass of wine as he waits for someone. Just them, we see Nick step out of a car and come inside to take a seat across from Tyler at the table.
Nick Confessional: So I’m meeting Tyler Cryler for lunch. This should prove to be interesting because Tyler…. he ain’t it sis.
Nick: Good evening Tyler, how are you doing today?
Tyler: Hi Nick, love your dress, I’m good. Busy morning at the store. How’re you?
Nick: Ohhh thank you! I got it at Nordstrom! I’m doing very well, the cafe is booming and I started a new cleanse and I’ve lost 3 pounds. Life is good!
Tyler: Amazing, glad you could join me today as well.
Nick: Well, Tyler I have to say, I was hesitant to come. You haven’t been the most gracious person to me recently and I’m not sure what I could have possibly done wrong.
Tyler: I haven’t Done anything to you in my eyes but I’m glad we can sit down and talk about it all because at the end of the day, I don’t want animosity with you I can promise you that *flips hair out of face*
Tyler Confessional: You can tell this is a crazy one after yelling at me at a game night and coming to say I’ve done something to her?
Nick: Tyler. You said I was a bad influence on your adult cousin. Like Tyler, you don’t even know me!
Tyler: That isn’t what I said. I said you aren’t the best one. And the thing is, the person who told you said the same thing. Now I’m sorry it offended you, but it’s been observation *shrugs*
Nick: Ohh my God, you are insane! That is the same thing. *sipping my champs* Well I think you’re a rather boring influence to be quite honest. But that’s just my opinion.
Tyler: And you’re welcome to it! *laughs* I’m not going to sit here moaning and crying about it. At the end of the day, I don’t want tension with you, Nick. We are both incredibly close to someone and I don’t want drama on that front
Nick: I just don’t understand why you think I’m a bad influence on Brian. Ms. Social is an adult, and I don’t have any control over his behavior. Brian and I just have a different history, one that you have no idea about. We have fun together, he’s the Paris and I’m the Nicole
Tyler: And that’s literally what I said to LEAH! Did she not tell you that? I said, “I don’t think Nick is the best influence, but we’re all adults and can make those decisions for ourselves”
Nick: No, Leah did not.
Nick Confessional: I think Tyler’s just jealous of Brian and I. We have fun together and Tyler must feel like a third wheel.
Tyler: Brian and Ted Bundy can become best friends, it’s no skin off my ass
Nick: Then why are you so concerned?
Tyler: Okay. Well, I did say that. I said that as my opinion but clarified that it isn’t my concern, just an observation. Leah is a close friend, we were chatting about things. I’ll talk to my friends about any fucking thing. As I’m sure you would with Brian or anyone else you’re close to
Nick: I’m honored, such close friends have nothing else to talk about. That must be a deep friendship.
Tyler: *laughs* The conversation was about Brian, our friend and my cousin, don’t flatter yourself
Nick: Ohhhh so you were talking about Brian behind his back.
Tyler: *laughs* See you’re going t twist literally any word I say so there’s no point. I fucking apologized to you, you can either accept it or there’s no point Nick.
Nick: Some cousin you are. In my family, we don’t do that. We are thick as thieves.
Tyler: I can’t do any more than saying I’m sorry it bothered you.
Nick: Well do me a favor, refrain from talking about me or my influence with little Miss 4 nose jobs and everything will be just fine.
Tyler: Trust me, I don’t care to talk about you. I want us to be friendly or cordial or whatever can come from this.
Nick: Good, then we can wash our hands of it. But let me tell ya, this isn’t a good way to start a friendship.
Tyler: On either side, my darling.
Tyler Confessional: Nick sits here on a high horse as though he didn’t say shit about me from the second that he met me! *flashes back to San Francisco*
Nick: Well…I’m glad we can agree on something. Now how about a round of shots? I’m ready to get MCHammered. *snapping my fingers at the waiter* We will have 4 shots of the highest quality tequila you have.
Tyler: I’ll drink *laughs* I promise you, I can be a fun bitch as well.
Nick: Well I’m ready to see Fun Tyler because he hasn’t shown up yet.
Tyler: Well fun nick hasn’t shown up for me yet either *downs both his shots as they’re placed on the table* So let’s try this fresh!
Nick: Fresher than my bikini wax and that’s saying something because I’m still red!
As the two laugh and have a few drinks, the scene transitions to a rooftop bar in Twitter where we see Sophie and Tanya entering a rooftop bar in uptown Twitter. The ladies take a spot at a hightop table near the bar as they place their orders and begin to chat.
Sophie Confessional: I’m meeting with Tanya for drinks and honestly I don’t know where we stand. We’ve been friends for a long time and I genuinely feel she, for one used me to get better connections in Twitter society, two, use me to help complete her project, and three, dump me for some, some classless woman who attacks me out of nowhere at a party. I’m disappointed, to say the least, but we can see where this goes if it goes anywhere.
Sophie: *extends hand* I’m Sophie Starz and to what do I owe this pleasure?
Tanya: Girl, BYE! *laughs* You know who I am…I’m the REAL one! You’re the one that’s been fake, my dear!
Sophie: Um, what was that for? Is it a sign of an apology? If it is, all is not forgiven, and how am I fake dear?
Tanya: Girl, you’re trying to fight with everyone and act as though you’re better than everyone else. NEWSFLASH: you’re no better than anyone, boo!
Sophie: *flips hair* I never claimed to be better than anyone else Tanya. Your new “friend” came at me with some BS and you think I’m just gonna let that slide? No, no, no, no. I don’t know who you think I am but I have a reputation to maintain here and I think some of those ladies have gotten in your ear and they’ve tried to turn you against me. *claps* And it’s working so far.
Tanya: The other ladies haven’t done anything!
Sophie Confessional: I don’t think I’m better than anyone. If it comes across that way then maybe they believe I’m better than them. I am a pretty threat after all!
Tanya: I already thought this before they even had a problem with you. But Sophie, I honestly just want to move past this shit. It’s petty & stupid, in my opinion
Sophie: Are you kidding me?! Ohhh, so if you’ve had this problem with me Tanya, then why did you take my donation, to help you, my “friend?”
Tanya: Because you GAVE it to me! I’m not just gonna turn down a donation to help expand my empire. I don’t care if you were the devil, I never turn down an investor
Sophie: Well as your investor, I would like to see a copy of our agreement…
Tanya Confessional: I’m a BOSS and I make BOSS moves. If someone is trying to invest in empire then I will certainly let them.
Tanya: Girl, STOP! We will discuss business LATER! We are here to talk about our friendship. And if you want the money back, honestly I’ll just give it right back. I don’t need it
Sophie: As a friend who still believes in you, I wouldn’t just waste money in a company that I don’t think will succeed, and maybe that is my fault for mixing business with our friendship. *grabs napkin*
Tanya: Well I brought the check with me *tries to hand Sophie the check* I don’t want this deal ruining our friendship!
Sophie: *pushes check away* I don’t want it. Keep the check. Because I still have faith in you. Keep it, honestly.
Tanya: Thank you, but it’s already complicated things. I just wanna be good again. And I don’t want this group of ladies to ruin our friendship either
Sophie: Me too! We just need to make a pact that none of these ladies will come between us! Likewise…. *extends hand*
Tanya: DEAL! I’m sorry for not having your back with the ladies.
Sophie: I accept your apology! And I apologize if I thought I was being better than you and starting unnecessary drama in your home. But speaking of your home, what the hell was that between Tyler and Nick?
Tanya: I honestly have no clue… I’m still lost. It all seems stupid & petty, I mean who cares if someone said that Nick’s a “bad influence” or whatever. They all just need to MOVE ON! It’s old news.
Sophie: It does, but I feel there’s more to the story than what we are getting. Exactly.
Tanya: Probably but I’m not getting involved. This is not my issue
Sophie: And I need to tell you something that’s been bugging me…My life is already a mess, but I met up with Nick and Brian and you know, I left the tab in my ex’s name and now I don’t know what to feel. He was my first husband and I’ll always care for him, but I need closure in that area.
Tanya: Yeah girl you definitely need closure… how can you get it?
Sophie: Maybe a sit down? But he still has the restraining order on me I believe, but nevertheless, I want to close that chapter of my life. I’m already selfish enough, constantly talking about my issues, but are you okay?
Tanya: Girl, you’re not selfish! Don’t worry. I’m always here for you. And that’s a whole different issue that I really don’t want to get into at the moment.
Tanya Confessional: I’m not happy at the moment… I’m just not. There is a lot behind a closed door that people don’t see… *starts crying*
Sophie: I understand. And I’m always a phone away! Or visit anyway. You know my dad’s door is always open and we can go to the secret room where we can have a relaxing day and forget about our problems!
Tanya: Yeah, boo! We should do that! Just relax and forget about our troubles like we used to. Maybe we should have a girls’ day or something soon!
Sophie: That’s exactly what we need! Well, Tanya, I’m glad we had this talk and we were able to move forward and leave the past behind us!
Tanya: Me too girl, I’m so glad! *hugs Sophie*
As the scene shifts, we see people filing into a huge mansion on the Twitter coastline. We then see the marketing products for Tyler’s perfume and then see the Ladies as they are beginning to arrive to the event, which Tyler has themed to the Roaring 20s. The Ladies, aside from Nick who has yet to arrive, begin to walk inside the mansion and greet Tyler who is standing in the entryway to greet all of his guests.
Tyler Confessional: The official launch of my perfume is finally here! To celebrate, I thought, what’s better than a theme party and I love Old Hollywood, 1920s, glamour! Hopefully, these ladies bring the class and regality of the 1920s, unlike their typical behavior *laughs*
Brian Confessional: Well apparently I don't know how to read and didn’t realize Tyler’s party is a 20’s theme? I threw this together fast.
Leah: TYY!! This is fabulous honey! I’m so happy for you.
Tyler: LEAH!! I love your outfit! And Sophie! This is to die for! This must be your…fiance, right? It’s great to meet him.
Sophie: Why yes, yes it is! And is this Adam…Marcus?
Sophie Confessional: Let’s just say I’m not that good with names. I honestly forgot.
Tyler: This is my husband Zack *laughs* Adam is here with his girlfriend though if you’d like to meet him. Hi Bri, great to see you as always
Brian: Hello Ty, congrats.
Sophie: Brian love, how are you? Want a glass of Moscato? I got two for myself *laughs*
Brian: Miss Sophie! Hello darling! Finally, I see someone with taste is here!
Sophie: *hugs Brian and giggles* Thank you! You look amazing yourself! Everyone here looks okay for the most part, except a lady. Or she calls herself a lady anyways…
Brian: And which lady would that be?
Sophie: LeAnna? Isn’t that her name?
Brian: Oh, you mean Leah! *laughs* Yes, Lady hahaha!
Tyler: *walks over to Leah* How have you been Leah honey?
Leah: I’m good, just dealing with this crazy new life of mine.
Tyler: I feel that, well you know I’m proud to be the friend of such a successful commentator on GMT.
Leah: Thanks babe, you should definitely come on and bring your fragrance! *looks over to Brian and Sophie laughing* What do you think those two are over there giggling about?
Tyler: I would love that honey…God only knows, seems like everyone is walking over. Should we? *laughs*
Leah: Sure, why not. *downs entire champagne*
Tyler: Well hopefully they’re nice tonight… *walks over with Leah* Hello ladies!
Sophie: Oh…hi ladies *looks Leah up and down*
Tanya: Hi girls! Leah, you look FAB doll!
Leah: Thank you, Tanya! Everybody really looks…great!
Leah Confessional: I’m killing Sophie with kindness. Because she clearly doesn’t want kind sweetheart Leah. I’ll just run over the bitch with kindness until she figures me out
Just then, the camera shifts back outside where a Masserati is seen speeding up to the door of the party. The car screeches to a halt outside the door and we see Nick hop out of the driver’s seat and runs into the Party, heading straight for the bar.
Brian: *walks over to Nick down the bar* I was worried that you were plotting my death and made me come to a boring party alone!
Nick: Brian, your death isn’t scheduled until 2024.
Tanya: Hey boo, I’m loving this outfit! You’re definitely giving me hooker chic! *laughs*
The ladies then all walk over to where Nick, Brian, and Tanya are standing.
Nick: Thanks, Tanya! Uhmm, why is everyone here dressed like old people though?
Tyler: *walks away clearly annoyed and mutters with her mic hearing what she says* I’m so sick of some of these stupid bitches, I swear.
Nick: I thought this was a 20’s Party? Aren’t we supposed to dress like 20-year-olds?
As everyone looks at Tyler walking away annoyed and hear Nick, faces of shock are seen on the faces of the Ladies as the scene and episode end.
Next time on Ladies of Twitter…the trouble continues at Tyler’s Perfume Launch as a sample of the perfume turns into an argument between Tyler and some of the Ladies, leading some Ladies to leave the Party early. Then, as there is an invite to go away to Kentucky, the women attempt to find a way through their newest issues.
