Back her weekend away with the bumbling Justin-Bobby (Justin Brescia), Audrina Patridge announces that the volatile couple is sooo back on.
Lauren and Whitney, meanwhile, discuss the development at work the next day, where Whitney teases an obviously concerned Lauren Conrad.
“They probably worked it out on their own,” Whitney Port chides at her friend, adding, “no need for everyone else to get involved!”
Then none other than Jason Wahler calls, and Whitney shoots Lauren a look of disapproval over LC’s decision to answer that Blackberry.
Jason takes Lauren to dinner at the new L.A. hotspot Ketchup, a place owned by none other than Paula Abdul boy toy J.T. Torregiani.
Wouldn’t you know it, Spencer Pratt just happens to be taking Heidi Montag to that very place to celebrate her promotion at Bolthouse.
After Jason and Lauren share some awkward moments of nostalgic flirtation, the drama starts to go down when a sarcastic Spencer spots them, and says “It’s great to see you guys back together, really, it’s heartwarming.”
LC restrains Jason, who wants to go over to their table and start $h!t. But the needling Spencer sends over a water and a Shirley Temple over to their table, prompting Conrad and Wahler to leave – and get heckled as they do.
Spencer’s take: “I wonder if she picked him up in rehab or jail?”
Heidi’s take: “After everything she’s been through with Jason, and me… who was there for her, through all that hell, is the one she won’t talk to… it’s baffling.”
Jason’s take: “Who cares about them?”
Lauren’s take: Not a lot, but she gave Jason Wahler SERIOUS kiss-me-now eyes when he drops her off afterwards. Damn, girl! Fortunately, J doesn’t make a move. Lauren is really desperate for some loving, guys. Make a move!
Elodie’s take: “What exactly did you do to her that makes her not even want to accept a drink from you? And also, you know, you were also friends with Audrina, and she doesn’t talk to you anymore. You were friends with Whitney too. You don’t even know what’s wrong and what’s right anymore. It’s so sad!”
Oh. Snap. Clearly Heidi Montag‘s “all business” defense doesn’t fly with Elodie, who’s still bitter over losing out on that Bolthouse job and pretty damn sick of listening to Heidi whining and bossing around her new assistant.
