DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
IT’S really helping me keep up with where the adoption’s at, what brand of coffee Julia Braverman’s drinking. The one she’s drinking right now isn’t from Zoe’s trolley, therefore we can take it she’s not getting her baby from Zoe either. It’s an enormous coffee, it should keep her going, in the same way she should be satisfied with the big, healthy daughter she’s already got at home. But these Parenthood people, they enjoy nothing more than making themselves miserable then talking about it for ages.
I mean, I don’t want to sound all ’ 70s here but how long is Kristina (Monica Potter) going to sulk because her husband smooched his secretary? I didn’t see last week’s episode but from tonight’s recap it didn’t look like much. Rachel, the girl, describes it tonight as ‘‘ one drunk mistake’’, so she’s probably not going to turn all Fatal Attraction. But Kristina’s still pushing Adam (Peter Krause) to knife her, and hire his sister Sarah’s daughter Amber, who is about to throw herself under a bus if she doesn’t leave her cafe job, like, today. Gossipy aside here, Peter Krause is going out with his screen sister Sarah in real life, Lauren Graham. And who used to be much more fun when she was Lorelai on Gilmore Girls. She’s still seeing that guy Mark on Parenthood, he seems into her but he’s too dull. They babysit Adam and Kristina’s baby tonight. Mark loves it, takes heaps of videos, it’s a bit alarming really.
‘‘ This is officially the littlest baby I have ever held,’’ he says. Sarah wants to roll her eyes but doesn’t. I’m only guessing. It’s nice she’s got a boyfriend at last, I suppose. Maybe Adam and Kristina should’ve got them to look after their son Max instead, but Kristina’s all giddy with excitement about going back to fulltime employment and skirts and actual footwear.
