Episode Review: ‘Devious Maids’ 1×5 “Taking Out the Trash”

Devious_Maids_logoIt’s been five episodes and I am most definitely hooked!

Last nights episode of Devious Maids titled “Taking Out the Trash” was full of drama. Between hitting people over the head with prosthetic legs and catfights with Remi’s high school ex-girlfriend, I could not help but stare at the screen with my jaw dropped as it all went down.

One of the biggest jaw droppers of this episode is learning that Carmen is married.

Yes, she is still tied to the man who tried to stop her from making her dreams become a reality.

Her husband Oscar finds out where she is working as a maid, and takes a trip out to see her. Sam and Odessa convince her to face him and let him know she doesn’t want to be married anymore.

However, Oscar has other plans, including returning her wedding band and trying to lure her back into his life with a gig at his friend’s restaurant.

Carmen refuses and things get violent. Oscar begins to forcefully grab Carmen and leave the house with her. Sam tries to take him on but gets knocked out and onto the bird cage, accidentally setting Alejandro Rubio’s bird free.

As much as Odessa wants to ruin Carmen’s life, she doesn’t want to give Oscar the pleasure of doing it for her, so she hits him over the head with her prosthetic leg.

That was the best fight I’ve seen in a while!

Other interesting events in this episode:

1. Valentina finds Remi’s high school ex girlfriend in his bed wearing red lingerie. When Remi leaves for an appointment with his college adviser, she gives Valentina a hard time, resulting in a cat fight between the two. (Side note: Pretty Little Liars fans, if you’re wondering where a Jason Dilaurentis went, he’s on Devious Maids! Remi Delatour is played by Drew Van Acker!)

2. When Peri Westmore leaves for work, Spence Westmore decides to swoop Rosie in for a kiss. She tells him no, and when he persists she threatens to hit him over the head with a pan. Peri returns to grab her keys and Rosie keeps her promise, leaving Spence on the floor just as Peri walks into the kitchen. Ooops. Blame it on the waxed floors!

3. Eddie had proposed to Flora a few months before her death. This case isn’t looking up for this kid.

4. Every year, Evelyn and Adrian Powell celebrate their dead son’s birthday. I just find it odd that they go the whole nine yards with a cake, candles AND a gift for him. He’s not alive to eat the cake, blow out the candles or even wear the wonderful cashmere blouse Evelyn got him! A simple memorial would have been fine but this is just too much! I hope they donate those gifts to a nice charity every year.

As with every week, I can never believe the episode is already over when it ends. Can’t wait for next week!

 

Dissing the Jenners

kendall jenner Recently it seems like Hollywood can’t stop picking on the Jenners!

This past week, Kendall Jenner took to Twitter to let go of some steam, tweeting:

“Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann.”

Kurt Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean, felt the need to address Kendall’s tweet, stating:

“I’d rather be a scumbag than a f–king idiot. Praise high IQ’s, good taste & awareness about the state of the world.”

Ouch!

But that wasn’t all. That tweet has been deleted from Frances’ Twitter, but a few others remain:

@KendallJenner oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned & homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn’t accessible.

@KendallJenner oh ya, not to mention, CANCER, famine, poverty, draught, disease, natural disasters, Death. Fuck, Humans are so self involved.

I’d like to thank my parents for providing me with a high IQ & I’d like to thank my grams for encouraging me not to be a self absorbed idiot.

It is true that Kendall Jenner is better off than most 17 year-old girls in this world.

However, I don’t think Frances had the right to lash out on her like that. We all have bad days when we feel like the world is crashing down on us, privileged or not.

And Kendall used that argument to defend herself.

But Frances still wasn’t having it.

She continued the Twitter feud, tweeting:

@KendallJenner everyone’s problems are relative and I in now way meant to demean you’re issues but publicly complaining about how hard your

@KendallJenner life is, is completely self serving. It’s asking for attention. If you are feeling like shit talk to someone who you trust

@KendallJenner as opposed to fishing for sympathy from your followers. I don’t know you nor do I think ur a bad person.

@KendallJenner I believe that venting about ones problems via the Internet is a blatant cry for attention.We all have experienced pain

@KendallJenner i try to deal w/ pain in a manner that pertains to my real life not in a way where strangers throw me a pity party.

@KendallJenner To each their own though man. It’s not my life, live it in whatever manner you want to.

Now, here is where I agree with Frances. Too many people have gotten comfortable using social media as an online diary. Got a bad grade on a test? Post in on Facebook. Stuck in traffic? Complain about it on Twitter. Waiter messed up your order? Take a picture and put it on Instagram.

It may not be that you’re looking for pity, but that’s what it comes off as. People will see your complaints and either respond or ignore them.

What ever happened to talking it out with kith and kin?

I’m sure Kendall has a great support system amongst the Kardashian/Jenner family. She can surely vent to one of them.

No need to post on Twitter and fuel a war with Frances.

Hopefully Frances has calmed down about this, though.

Kendall isn’t the only Jenner getting heat. Her mother, Kris Jenner, is being criticized by Sharon Osbourne for “pimping out her children” to make kris jennermoney and become famous.

What?

I think “pimping” is the wrong word here. She helps her children, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney with their clothing store, Dash, and Rob with his sock collection. Kendall and Kylie are models.

I don’t ever recall her selling them for sex.

Sharon goes on to say that Kris Jenner’s upcoming talk show is “going to bomb harder than Ricki Lake’s one season flop.” She can’t wait for the trainwreck apparently.

Kris fought back saying that Sharon is only clinging to her husband for fame and her show “The Talk” is boring.

I don’t know what’s going with these two but it doesn’t look pretty.

Hopefully these ladies figure things out before words become catfights.
