I DO NOT.

Short recap: Teddy got married and nobody cared.

Long recap: "She's Got You" was a pretty slow-moving episode until the last 10 minutes… and was then capped off by an INSANE plot-twisting final 10 seconds in which Olivia Wentworth -- a Juliette Barnes super-fan unhappily married to Juliette's current eff-buddy Charles -- gave new meaning to the term "jealous wife" by planting a kiss on the country queen.

"I know you're sleeping with my husband," Olivia crazy-eyed Juliette while inching toward her prey. "But what I don't understand is why you're not sleeping with me." What?! Hilarious. And here we thought she'd just crucify Juliette and Charles with a good old-fashioned public shaming after catching them in the act post-polo match.

I can't imagine the lesbian plot line going too much further -- Juliette loves her fans, but she also loves herself some fresh man meat -- and as we heard from her in tonight's best line, "Nice just ain't my color." Great episode-ender for sure. But what now?

Juliette spent the hour standing up for women's rights and ordering her new boy toy -- who owns a company called (and also is a) "Media Mogul" -- to fire and then rehire nasty Houston radio personality Bobby Delmont, dubbed "Santa Claus" because young girls have to sit on his lap to get airplay. Gross gross gross.

Juliette unloaded on Charlie about how hard it is to be a lady in the country music business: "You just smile and pretend you don't hate everybody who's using you." Well, no more! She put on her fakest, sweetest smile and hate-blasted Mr. Claus right to his face in her dressing room, demanding he give her twice as much airplay as that wannabe Layla Grant if he wants to keep the job he doesn't deserve. She owns him. I love how she swiveled back around to the mirror, where the more important stuff was happening (lip gloss), before barking at him to "Get out!" And this delicious snipe also trumpeted….
