An Offer You Can’t Refuse
Young Taystee is everything we could have imagined. We’re introduced to her at an adoption fair, where Taystee is trying desperately to find a family.
She proves to be rough around the edges when she tells another little girl to “fuck off and scram” while talking to a family. Surprise, surprise, they don’t want anything to do with her. Little Taystee finds herself sitting alone with a snow cone lost in thought when an older woman approaches her. The woman, which we come to know as Vee, offers Taystee a home with her, but T can see right last her and calls her out as a drug dealer.
When Tiffany Doggett finally gets out of solitary, she’s immediately called into Healy’s office. Healy clarifies what he didn’t see during Doggett and Piper’s Christmas fight. What an ass. But Pennsatucky isn’t as dumb as she looks, she says in order to go along with Healy’s story she’s going to need some new teeth. Thank God. I could only stare and her decaying set for so long without throwing up.
Mother May I
Daya is still pregnant and of course her nonexistent mother wants to be part of it. Problem. Daya can’t shit. She’s been backed up for five days and her mother and Mendoza make it their personal completion. Poor Daya.
Broke As A Joke
Since Red was outed from the kitchen her commissary has been a little bare. She’s broke and her family can’t even help her since business at the restaurant has been slow. Can Red keep the throne now that she’s on the outs?
Taystee’s Job Fair victory is short lived when she looks out the auditorium door. See a ghost, T? Vee is standing in khaki outside, guess mummy’s back. How will this change the prison dynamic?
Should Taystee accept her old mother figure or ignore her? Keep the conversation going @brittanydebaltz.
This Week in the Lives of TV Stars
When you’re a TV star, things are constantly changing. Here are the main stories, we think you should know about!
- Things are moving fast with Lea Michele and her boyfriend, Mathew Paetz. They’ve only been dating since June, but US Weekly reports that he’s already moved into her home. He was spotted moving in over the weekend, unpacking his U-Haul truck! It’s good to see Michele happy and moving on.
- A Switched at Birth wedding! Katie Leclerc wed fiancé Brian Stuart Habecost in a romantic ceremony on Saturday. The duo said ‘I do’at Colony 29 in Palm Springs. Most of her TV co-stars and family, including TV dad Gilles Marini, were on hand to celebrate the event.
- And speaking of weddings, Ashley Tisdale got married this weekend as well. The Young and Hungry producer secretly wed fiancé Christopher French. She confirmed the ordeal on Instagram writing, “Best day of my life! Introducing Mr. and Mrs. French Sept.8, 2014” with a snapshot from the wedding.

The couple got engaged last August on the 103rd floor of the Empire State Building. They met in 2012 via mutual friends. BFF and High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens was one of Tisdale’s six bridesmaids, all of whom wore complementing gowns in various shades of pink, lavender and nude. There were about 100 guests gathered at the private estate for the ceremony, including other HSM stars.

- Charlie Hunnam can’t let 50 shades go… Can you blame him? Sons of Anarchy premiered yesterday, but the buzz is all about how Hunnam passed up the role of Christian Grey. Wait didn’t we already hear about this? Now, Hunnam is opening up about how the role gave him a mental breakdown. (Sidenote: I don’t think that’s the effect playing Mr. Grey is suppose to have on a person.)
When Hunnam took the role, he was currently playing three characters. “I was going to finish [filming] Sons at like 11 p.m. Friday night, get on the plane Saturday morning to Vancouver for Fifty, missing the whole first week of rehearsal and start shooting Monday morning,” Hunnam recalled. “And I was going to shoot that film, wrap that on the Wednesday and the following Monday I was going to start shooting Crimson Peak in Toronto. I just had like … frankly, something of a nervous breakdown,” he said.
Two months after being cast as Mr. Grey, Hunnam had to drop out of the massive production. “I just said, ‘I can’t … I can’t …. To fail on such a grand scale — because Fifty’s going to be massive, it’s going to be huge. I really didn’t want to fail on such a grand scale, and I just couldn’t transition from Jax Teller to Christian Grey in 48 hours. It’s painful because I loved the character and I wanted to do it. I’m also a man of my word.”
Well, as sad as it is, I think it’s safe to say Jamie Dornan did the character justice. Am I right?

OITNB: Low Self-Esteem City (02 x 05)
Head to Head
When the bathroom that the Latina’s use has shit literally coming out of the shower drains, they attempt to move into the Ghetto bathroom. Laughable, right? This starts a full out fight between both Vee and Mendoza’s girls now that they’re forced to share. How long will that last before someone gets hurt?
Shoutout to Fig for being a complete bitch. She refused to fix the Latina’s showers. Yes, go ahead and cue Shower by Becky G. Sorry, Latina’s, but it doesn’t look like you’ll be dancing in the mirror or singing in the showers anytime soon. Instead of fixing the showers, Fig decided to cap shower times to 30 seconds.
The tension between the two groups continued to get worse and finally forced Mendoza and Vee to come up with a plan to put out the fire. It’s a shame that Vee completely screwed Mendoza over, but I guess we’ll see more of that in the next episode. Mendoza doesn’t seem a stranger to being screwed over though. In flashbacks, we learned why the “witch doctor” was in Litchfield to begin with. She was committing fraud with food stamps in the store she owned to put money away to get away from her abusive boyfriend. Can you blame her?
Back in Piper World, we saw a sad Piper. Poor Pipe just didn’t understand why her father wasn’t visiting her. Was it because she’s in prison? That he doesn’t want to see her like that? Or could it be something else? Well leave it to her brother Cal to spill the beans. Grandmother is dying. What does Piper decide to do about the devastating news? Ask for furlough. No one ever gets furlough.
Fishing for Fischer
Nicky and Boo just won’t let up. Granted they don’t really have anything else as sport to do in prison, but their game was getting out of hand. Nicky was after Fischer. Poor Fischer didn’t even know what hit her. Kudos to you Fischer! Finally someone turned Nicky down.
Will Piper get furlough to see her grandmother or will it be too late? Keep the conversation going at @craveyoutv!
OITNB: A Whole Other Hole (02 x 04)
Selfish is how you survive.
I don’t know about you, but for some time I’ve been wondering why Lorna was in prison. This episode finally gave us the background we’ve been craving for. Haha, craving, see what I did there?
Last episode we found that Christopher was getting married and it was NOT to Lorna. Since Lorna has some freedom as van driver, we watch her sneak over to Christopher’s house during Rosa’s chemo session. As she breaks in and walks around, we find that Christopher is perfectly blissful with his soon-to-be-wife Angela. In fact, Christopher never had anything with Lorna. They went on one date and when it didn’t work out, she stalked him. It got scary when Lorna made a homemade bomb and put it under Angela’s car. Poor Lorna or poor Christopher?
Back in Litchfield, the women are finally figuring their anatomy. After Poussey invents the Stand and Deliver, it comes to light that most of the women are clueless to what is happening down there. But leave it to Sophie, who designed her own for her surgery, to draw up a map and explain it all.
Now that Piper is back, it was just a matter of time until her got her room assignment. Who’s her new roomie, you ask? You’ve guessed it. Red. That poor woman can’t catch a break. First she loses the kitchen and now she’s stuck with all the prison drama in the bed next to her. When Red complains to Caputo, she’s insulted. Insult Red and get away with it? Ha. Poor Caputo doesn’t know what he’s in for now that Red is on the outs. After a walk around the grounds, she finds the abandoned greenhouse with a storm drain to the outside world. She successfully manipulates Caputo into letting the Golden Girls start a gardening program. What will she do with the storm drain? Will she escape?
Let me be the first to say, I cannot stand Vee. She is a complete snake in Litchfield. Yet Taystee takes everything she says as gold. I sincerely hope that Red takes her out.
Last, but not least, we have Larry. What is she up to now? Oh you know just flirting it up with Piper’s best friend, Polly. He’s spending way too much time with Polly and eating up the attention he gets with her, but problem, Polly is enjoying it. Will they have an affair will Pete is up in Antarctica cuddling penguins? How will they explain that one to Piper?
