What led them back down faux-lationship lane? Well, while going on a self-help binge/Liam-detox at a local java hut with her BFF, Karma ran into her mom and her mom's gang of friends. That would have been fine -- if all her mother's friendships hadn't been built upon a delicate pile of lies.
See, back during Karmy's imitation lesbianism, Mrs. Ashcroft joined PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) and eventually climbed the ranks all the way to the presidency of its local chapter. When Karma finally actually came out (this time as a liar), it should have been the end of her mama's run with the group. Except it wasn't. And tonight, Mrs. A begged the girlfriend-fakers to fall back into old habits -- right in time to attend the organization's big country-western-themed fundraiser.
The two agreed: before long, as the other families got down to line-dancing and opening up about their LGBTQIA+ experiences, K & A were hitting the mechanical bull and pulling off award-winning performances as long-term partners.
Maybe their acting was too convincing: Amy's old feelings for Karma, which had almost ruined their friendship the first time, started to stir up again. After briefly wigging out, Amy did what she could to distance herself from the relationship -- after all, she didn't want to end up like her mom, who'd spent her life pining away for her absent dad.
But are her feelings truly gone? Do you think you can ever really get over somebody who's a constant presence in your life? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section, and catch all the fallout from the mama drama on the next “Faking It" on Monday night at 9:30/8:30c.
