“This is a DATE auction, right?”

While the seeds of doubt have been planted in the otherwise picture perfect couple, Kyle is just out there to do what she does best: get money. When the stuffy, potential stroke victim of a Devils announcer proved to be a bust at the team’s fancy charity auction, Kyle pointed out her charm school pedigree and proven ability to make men grovel. Olivia needed some convincing before she’d hand over the names and numbers of her colorist, eyebrow lady, personal trainer, AND dermatologist (getting appointments in L.A. is tough!) but she eventually put the good of the team and needy children first. During a glorious extended party scene, we were gifted with not one but two celebrity cameos, from Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and reformed Konvict, Akon. We’re guessing the former hit on Kyle as well, and that his pass was in no way suitable to air.

In the midst of old penguins throwing their money around, Jelena once again tried to make Ahsha’s wide-eyed world come crumbling down. I can see how Terrence blowing off their anniversary dinner put her in a bad mood (worse that her regular disposition) but forging Derek‘s name and signature to bid on a dance with Ahsha (at $100,000) when German just so happened to be in the room was asking for a chair-flipping, drink-throwing brawl. Clearly Jelena knew that Derek will toss all morals out the window once his competitive spirit has been stoked. But the real lesson learned here? Don’t leave this lady around your credit card.

If German can’t finagle a way for mother and daughter to reconcile, Sloane is just going to have to ambush Ahsha in the bathroom. Few words have been exchanged between these two over the last couple of weeks, and there’s more than a little bit of resentment floating in the air. They were alone, and in their charitable bests. What’s the deal?
