Hey Beach Bums! Back from Europe this week, Jessica vents to her friend Emily about Cameron and Kyndra's winter formal hookup. Jess goes off on Kyndra, calling her every name in the book, but gives Cameron enough credit to have dinner with him that night. This is a perfect example of why Jessica irks me. She should be mad at CAMERON, who is supposedly her boyfriend. She rates so high on the Laguna Beach Pathetic Scale that they may have to get a new one if there's another season. At dinner, Cameron and Jessica argue about their relationship but Cam calls Jessica on her "flirty fighting", which is so dead on! She was so obviously looking for reassurance that Cameron likes her better than anyone else, but got nothing. It was quite painful, actually. The next day Jessica tells a friend that Cam said that he'll always love her but he's not "in love" with her. That's almost as bad as "it's not you, it's me." Later that day at the park, Cameron officially dumps Jess, and believe it or not, I felt sorry for her. I'm a bigger wuss that Cameron is. Tessa goes out on a great date with cutie Derek, and things get serious when Derek wants to know the deal behind the animosity between Tess, Cami and Kyndra. All is cleared up when Tess reveals that a couple of years back she was hospitalized for three weeks due to an allergic reaction to a medication. While she was recuperating, nice girls Cami and Kyndra dropped off the radar. Really Tessa, like they had time to visit a sick friend when there was shopping and bitching to be done. Please. Cut to Cami and Kyndra shopping and bitching about Derek and Tessa dating, and how they can't understand the attraction. But the real jaw-dropping moment of the night came when the cashier told Cami her total was $4,285. I'm sorry, WHAT? I think my dinner just came up. Derek throws a barbecue and before his new love Tessa gets there, Kyndra, Cami and Nikki dog her in front of the boys. Right after Tessa arrives, the meanies make their exit. I was so annoyed! These girls make me want to fly to Laguna and kick some beach ass. Tessa is bummed from the whole situation and hopes for better things to come. I hear ya, sister! Before I sign off, let me pose one last question: How annoying is Cameron's friend Nick? If I could reach through the screen and beat him, I would. I can't decide what bothers me most about him; his utter desperation to be as cool as he thinks Cameron is or his incessant nonsensical blabber. What are your thoughts?
Until next time,
