The A-List: Dallas Recap: “You Gave Him A Mimosa Facial”


Episode seven of Logo’s The A-List: Dallas is all about the aftermath of last week’s alcohol-soaked, fist-flying, insult-spewing bust-ups between former besties Phillip and James, and ex-lovers Levi and Taylor. Caught in the middle is Princess Ashley, aglow with spray tan and the glory of Jebus, as she tries to pull James back from the brink of drowning his wounded heart in the bottom of a martini glass.

The episode opens with Phillip and Levi sparring in an empty boxing gym; Dallas could a ghost town to judge from how often the ALD castmates interact in virtually deserted venues. Anyway, they trash talk James and then gossip about Taylor the Terrible. Levi is happy to participate. Phillip nonchalantly spills the beans about his own role in provoking Taylor. Even though Levi’s jaw drops at Phillip’s breezy dismissal of his own shit-stirring antics, our laconic cowboy, ever conflict-avoidant, lets him off the hook.

Elsewhere, Ashley takes James for a stroll in the park and tries to talk some sense into his booze-addled brain. But James just isn’t listening. She gingerly broaches the notion of rehab and he is scornful and condescending. “How do I talk to you without you flipping out?” she asks.

Once again, however, Ashley undermines any good will generated by her concern for her friends with a head-spinning whopper of a casual remark. In commenting on her addiction to spray tanning, she wishes aloud that she were half-black and half-Mexican—with a quick amendment that she has to still be white, too. Agh!

      Enjoyed the recap. Levi and Chia Pet Hair Chase are trying to convince us that
      Taylor is a manipulative bitch. Maybe, but Chia Pet Hair is far superior in that department – he is a puppet master and Levi couldn’t catch a clue if someone through it at him. His bitchiness is perfected but Taylor’s needs work, it doesn’t look as
      effortless as CPH Chase.

      Taylor is becoming the Rodiney and I’m starting to feel very sorry for him. Get him
      a new storyline and move some else into the luv triangle. Find him someone else
      more his equal, at least in intelligence. Sorry, but Levi is quickly losing his
      appeal. He’s too drunk, slurry, crude, and just plain dumb.

      But, I’m watching this train wreck with glee. I wonder how much is actually real.

      Meant to say “threw it at him…” not “through,” it’s late.

      @iluvrottis: I completely agree with you! Levi has been a sloppy drunk since the third episode. That crooked nose and love handles doesn’t help either. Taylor is the best character on the show. Period! Don’t even get me started on elf-eared Chase.

      My recap:

      Background noise with silly pretend-time boys. Surfing the web and I want to give LOGO its’ 4th audience member. Wish LOGO would give me some respect. Is anyone REALLY watching?
