Hey Beach Bums!
This week on the sultry sands of the real O.C. it was Cameron's birthday. As he shopped for a new guitar that his parents were going to buy him, he chatted with his incoherent bud, Nick, about Tessa's annoying text messages. Nick told him that Cam was obviously just "shopping around for chicks," to which Cameron responded "Dude, what are you trying to say?" Exactly my point.
Jessica and Alex met for lunch and Jess 'fessed up that she was still hangin' with Cameron on a regular basis, even though he is still only in high school. Yes, Jessica, we can't even imagine you spending time with someone SO immature. Is she kidding?
Cami has a pow-wow with her friend Candance over Kyndra's "much older, on-again-off-again boyfriend," Tyler. The girls are sure Ty will end up breaking Kyndra's heart for the umpteenth time, and the good friends that they are will have to say "we told you so." Meanwhile, Kyndra heads to Tyler's house for a romantic backyard barbecue and Ty asks her if she wants to get back together. They seal deal with some steamy kisses by the outdoor fireplace. Just so you know, Tyler could not be more creepy and unappealing, and if his stock couldn't drop any further, we see that he's pals with last season's trouble maker, Jason. This guy is bad news.
At Cameron's birthday bash, Cami and Jessica pretend to be friends for five minutes so they can rag on Kyndra and Tyler's doomed relationship. At the same time, the dysfunctional pair go out for dinner and argue when Kyndra brings up their age difference. Tyler doesn't understand why she has to harp on the fact that he was eighteen when they met and she was only fourteen. I mean, really Kyndra, it's so not a big deal that he likes little girls. Sheesh.
Back at the party, Cameron and Jess are canoodling when Tessa shows up all ready to give the birthday boy some birthday lovin'. Obviously crushed, Tessa bails early. The next day she and Raquel commiserate on what a dog Cameron is, but Tessa calls him anyway to talk about their situation. He dodges her call and leaves her waiting by the phone while he hangs at the beach with his buddies. I would have felt bad for her if I thought Cameron was any big loss - but I don't.
Until next time,
