Coco: Well reflection is done so let me get busy on Soul’s baby shower. Her sister Sparkle wants a Boho Star theme which is something I didn’t know could exist as a theme but Lyfe said we would make it happen and she’s the Boss so let me get started on looking up how to interpret this weirdness I mean theme 🙄
Dr. Freudoll: Nice to see you, Ari. You're looking well. Actually- Wait, is that my jacket you're wearing?
Ariana: Well, it was. Remember, you gave it to me at Allie & Hunter's engagement party. Admit it Doc, it looks MUCH better on me!
Dr. Freudoll: [awkwardly] I was a bit under the influence at that party, Ariana. It is my favorite jacket, and I assure you I wouldn't have done that had I been sober...
Ariana: [giggles] A BIT under the influence? You were LOADED! Oopsie, didn't see your kid there!
Dr. Freudoll: [sighs] Yeah, that's my little Gracie. I couldn't get a sitter for her. Usually my gf Sappho looks after her during my sessions, but she's left me for some super model named "Dalisay". The worst part is she has a nicer undercut than mine!
Ariana: Ooh, you should go to Steve's hair salon! You know Sienna's brother Steve, right? He's the cute, short gay guy that was at the party. You were stuffing bills down his pants while he danced. It was wild!
Dr. Freudoll: [clears her throat] You know I want my jacket back, right?
Alice: "Do you think the baby would like a monster doll?"
Angelina: "Yeah it's cute plus babies don't judge."
Alice: "I can't wait to congratulate Violet. To have a child is such a blessing."
Angelina: "I hope that Satana girl don't bring her ass round, I'll knock bitch out if I need to."
Alice: "No fighting this is Violet's and Codi's special day for them to introduced their baby...Oh gosh we should've brought diapers as a gift instead."
I bought a few pieces for my church diorama this morning online. I’m modeling my diorama after the small church I attended as a child. We didn’t have a choir (because the congregation was literally comprised of only 25-30 people) so everyone in our church sang out of hymnals while the pastor’s daughter players the piano. The same will happen in my diorama. I plan on having a drummer, pianist, and someone on the guitar. Hopefully everything can fit in this small space. 🤔
The detectives try to piece together the scene and wait until the coroner arrives. Det. Nico DeLuca arrived on scene to interview Andrés as well as debrief Officer Xander; who was clearly struggling with shooting a woman... **** Violet got Andrés' messages and decided to swing by his place and hear him out. She freaked out when she saw the police cruisers outside.
VIOLET: "😣Dre?! Dre?! 😱Oh my word!!!! Dre!!! Oh God no! Is he hurt?!"
NICO: "😐He's fine Violet but this is a crime scene."
AJ: "😞Let her through DeLuca. This was a clean shoot." **** Violet hugged up on Andrés who stood there numb with shock. Violet saw the body lying on the ground. **** VIOLET: "😕Oh my...is that ---"
ANDRÉS: "😔Lila...yea...She... she's gone...."
VIOLET: "😞Baby, I'm so sorry I didn't listen to you...Are you okay?"
ANDRÉS: "😔She tried to kill me...if the officers didn't arrive when they did... who knows..." **** NICO: "*ahem* The coroner arrived. We need to let the crime scene investigators do their work."
AJ: "😐You'll need to come down to the station with us to make a statement. Violet can come too." **** VIOLET: "Come on baby...I won't leave your side... let's get you cleaned up..." Andrés was just going through the motions. He couldn't feel a thing. He was lost in what just happened... and what just could have happened 😔😔😔 #Barbie#life#dolls#moms#instapic#potd#picoftheday#photooftheday#craft#photoshoot#toyartistry#crafts#toys#motd#fashion#makeup#fanart#dollstagram#toyphotography#dollstories#love#beautiful#toyphotogallery#dollsofinstagram#instagram
Coco gets comfortable on her mediation pillow and thinks about how grateful she is to be in Neshaville. She begins her journal entry for the day.
Coco: I’m extremely grateful for Lyfe for choosing me to be her Assistant and for her loving and giving spirit. She doesn’t just want to my boss but my mentor so that I can one day have my own Event Planning Business. I’m grateful for my new apartment that’s absolutely perfect for me and every way. I’m grateful for the new friends I’ve made since I’ve moved here and how everyone has embraced me with the most loving arms. Lastly I’m grateful for Mason, my new trainer who’s going to help me build up my stamina so I can keep up with Lyfe and it doesn’t hurt that’s he’s extremely easy on the eyes.
Meanwhile, Andrés has been trying to get a hold of Violet. She refuses to answer any of his calls. Lila thought she'd sneak in his apartment and wait until he came home from work. She was surprised to find him home.
ANDRÉS: "😦Violet, baby, please. This is the last message I'm leaving. I'm sorry I didn't tell you about my past. Look, I'm home. I'm hopping in the shower now but please baby... 🙁call me." *** Once the coast was clear, Lila snuck into Andrés room through his window. She heard the shower on and began rummaging through his stuff. Smelling his clothes... **** Listening to his music... **** She even made herself comfortable and laid on his bed.
LILA: "☺Oh Dre...You do love me... you just don't realize it. I'll help..." ****
Andres thought he heard footsteps before jumping in the shower...
ANDRES: "😳Lila?! 😡What the heck are you doing here?!"
LILA: "😊Hey baby... miss me?!"
ANDRÉS: "😠You crazy witch! Its you isn't it?! You're behind these attacks on Violet and her assistant! I'm calling the cops!" #Barbie#life#dolls#moms#instapic#potd#picoftheday#photooftheday#craft#photoshoot#toyartistry#crafts#toys#motd#fashion#makeup#fanart#dollstagram#toyphotography#dollstories#love#beautiful#toyphotogallery#dollsofinstagram#instagram
[Babs clears her throat to get their attention, insecurely fingering her "Love" necklace that was a gift from Buffy.] Buffy: Oh hey, Babs. Have you met Vivian? She's the new tennis instructor!
Babs: [coolly] Hello Vivian, I'm Buffy's wife. I'll be teaching the ballet classes.
Vivian: Oh awesome, it's great to meet you! Are you joining Buffy and I for a business lunch meeting?
Babs: [side-eyes Buffy] Business lunch, huh?
Buffy: Uh yeah, for the gym teacher position. She wants to be my assistant!
Babs: [sarcastically] ...I'm sure she does. No, I've got to take our children to the dentist. You enjoy your lunch...
Vivian: Thank god for this new community center. I don't know what I would do for work otherwise, without teaching these tennis classes! My sister Emma told me there would be plenty of jobs here in Tiffy Town, but they're pretty scarce with my background in physical education!
Buffy: I know just what you mean. I'm the gym teacher for the school here, and I could actually use an assistant gym teacher if you're interested. I swear it seems like the number of kids keeps growing somehow! I don't know where they're all coming from, but it's a lot to handle on my own!
Vivian: I would definitely be interested! This is really only a part-time gig and I needed to find something else, too. How can I apply?
Vivian: Hey ladies, taking a break?
Buffy: Yep, pretty much. We just got some sign-ups, so we're happy about that!
Vivian: Oh, great. I was just about to check the roster. Any for tennis? [2nd photo, Muffy goes and hugs Vivian.]
Muffy: Hi, Miss Vivi!
Vivian: Hello, sweetheart!
Buffy: Yes, Muffy here is your little recruiter! She persuaded Eleanor to sign up. I told her she's supposed to be recruiting kids for her moms' ballet and martial arts classes, but she's got her heart set on tennis!
Vivian: As she should! Great job, Muffy...
Went to WalMart and picked up some new fabrics this evening. I bought some green fabric so I could experiment with filming my dolls against a green screen. Anyone have any tips for me with using a #greenscreen for video?
Andrés flipped through his phone to find a picture of Lila.
ANDRÉS: "Hold on a second, I just realized something. I have an ex-girlfriend that I bumped into recently. She did everything she could to destroy my life when we broke up. She stalked me, had me arrested, turned my family against me. She tried to come to me with a peace offering but I wanted nothing to do with her...Violet, do you recognize her?" **** Violet was caught of guard and couldn't think clearly...until she looked at Lila's picture
VIOLET: "😱Those eyes!!! Yes! I'd never forget those crazy big eyes! This is her!" **** Andrés quickly hands over his phoned to the detectives.
ANDRÉS: "😠😠😠I should've known!!!!! She's freaking nuts! She's an ex addict and probably off her meds! She's got depressive behaviors...Her name is Lila Turner. I'm afraid I don't know where she lives now but I do know she's an artist..."
AJ: "😐We're going to need all the information you have on her Mr. Rivera." Violet grabbed her purse and walked away.
Buffy: Right, I understand. Well I didn't mean to judge, I commend you! People just always talk, like you said. They make assumptions, think they've got everything and everyone figured out. But you're not at all like what people say, is what I meant!
Tiff: Oh okay, well...that's good to know.
Buffy: So uh, you looking to sign up for anything? I don't just teach kid's classes, you know. Ever do any martial arts?
Tiff: I was pretty passionate about Tae Kwon Do when I was younger. Honestly, I would love to continue lessons for that!
Buffy: Okay, that can be arranged. I know TKD. Now, what about the kids?
Tiff: Elizabeth said she wants to do ballet. What about you, Eleanor?
Coco: Whew!! If today is any indication then being Lyfe’s new assistant is going to be crazy. I need to make sure I found a gym so I can build my stamina up!
Coco sits up and reaches for her shopping bag and purse on the floor.
Coco: At least I found the perfect table lamp for my apartment as she reaches into the bag.
She takes a moment to look around her apartment. It’s small but that’s what she wanted a space just for her and a few of her favorite possessions. The big house and glitzy furnishings were all part of her past and if she was truly honest with herself this felt like Home more than her previous place. Besides she could be herself in this place, no being the perfect wife, she was finally free.
