Season 1, Episode 7
“Who Doesn’t Like Wine?”
Candace organizes a wine tour for the moms. However, Casey is a no show, Suz and Teryn spend their time texting, and Stephanie announces her marriage is falling apart. All hell breaks loose when Candace finally says something.
Despite the recent drama surrounding the group, Candace plans an all day wine tour for the multi-mamas. Teryn and Tonia are excited to go, but Casey, Stephanie and Suz are less than thrilled. Casey and Suz are still upset with Candace and Tonia for trying to embarrass Casey with her past at Hooters and Stephanie is wary of spending a full day in Candace’s company.
But things aren’t very peaceful for Stephanie at home either. She’s still recovering from her breast surgery and from the way her mother-in-law treated her afterwards. Despite asking Jerald numerous times to stand to his mother, he continues to push Stephanie’s feelings aside.
The day of the wine tour arrives and Suz joins Candace and Tonia for some pre-tour drinks first thing in the morning. But it’s clear from the moment she steps through the door, that Suz is not thrilled to be there. She also informs Candace and Tonia that Casey will not be coming because one of her quads is ill. Candace is immediately put off by Suz’s demeanor, and becomes suspicious of why Casey really isn’t there.
When Teryn and Stephanie arrive, the tension in the house is palpable. Stephanie decides to lighten the mood by offering to show off her “new twins”. Before any of the ladies can respond, her top comes off and everyone is shocked, Teryn most of all.
But the moment of levity is short-lived. When everyone piles into the wine tour bus, the tension returns and hardly anyone has anything to say. Stephanie is immediately texting back and forth with Jerald while Suz and Teryn are both on their phones as well. Tonia and Candace are appalled by everyone’s rude behavior but do their best to keep smiles on their faces.
Finally, Stephanie finally breaks down and confesses to the group that her marriage is in shambles. She tearfully explains that Jerald refuses to make her the most important woman in his life. Most of the women are compassionate, but Teryn is skeptical. She thinks Stephanie is stirring up drama to get attention.
The group sits down for dinner and Teryn shares the news that Casey is going to join them after all. When Casey arrives, the tension is as thick as ever and no one seems to have anything to say. Finally, Candace can’t hold back any longer. She demands to know why everyone is ruining her day. Whatever Candace was expecting, is surely isn’t the firestorm that she gets in response.
