So, we’re not in search of your suggestions in the meanwhile, okay? Oh, and do not say your pronouns are apparent. That makes you suck.

Welcome to the Ladies’s Middle, Leighton. See you at poetry night time.

There was additionally a little bit of name-dropping within the new episodes as Kimberly (Pauline Chalamet) raves about Beto O’Rourke’s abs. And when Leighton tells the ladies she’s had the “worst day of her life,” Whitney (Alyah Chanelle Scott) mocks her by asking, “Oh my God, did they cancel your reservation at Mar-a-Lago?”

We’re solely midway via the season, so there’s nonetheless loads of time for extra woke advantage signaling, sadly.
