Cashmere Mafia Recap: Episode 6, "Yours, Mine, and Hers"

Cashmere Mafia Rundown: Episode 6, "Yours, Mine, and Hers"


Leave it to Cashmere Mafia to usher in Valentine's Day with a hearty helping of heartbreak. It's not like every relationship ended in tatters, but the episode wasn't a great advertisement for swooning, head-over-heels love, either. Unless, of course, we're talking about the love you share with your best girlfriends while devouring a box of chocolates. I'll go character-by-character after the jump, so just

.

  • Mia — Wow, Mia actually had a lot going on this time, not the least of which was her Jack flashback ("Jackback!"). Now only is he now a rival publisher, but his new anchorwoman girlfriend is blatantly wearing Mia's favorite scarf on the air, which I gather is something akin to war in these circles. I figured the sex tape would turn into some big scandal with the tape ending up in the hands of a particularly intrepid TV reporter, so I was pleasantly surprised Cashmere took a different path, having Mia find not only the sex tape but also a sweet video of some of her happier moments with Jack. I've never believed Jack as ruthless and cold (Tom Everett Scott's just not the type), but Mia certainly seemed surprised to see a sweet side of him. I think she really might be over him now, though; he is a little needy. Also, do scarves actually go through shredders?
  • Caitlin — Well, she's a mess, as usual. But it's not entirely her fault this time. The pregnant lesbian girlfriend situation wasn't great to begin with, but now the ex is back in the picture as well — and is giving Caitlin guff for her confused sexuality? Come on, now, give the poor girl some time to deal. It's sad that Alicia kept her in the picture long enough for her to get attached to being a mommy (er, at least the part of being a mommy that involves buying cute toys and shmoopy photo albums), but that whole situation was so darn weird, I think she's better off away from it.

  • Juliet — For all her craftiness and calculations, Juliet just can't win with Davis. First of all: manimony? It doesn't seem like Davis is doing too poorly for himself; if those nice suits and fancy cars are what "holding back your career" looks like, then I'd like some of that, please. Second: He has a heart attack while banging another woman, and his wife rushes to his side — only to be accused of extortion when the heart attack turns out to be just a panic attack? That's cold, especially considering that was maybe the one sweet and honest thing Juliet has ever done for him. Luckily, revenge is Juliet's specialty.
  • Zoe — This was another story that went in a somewhat unexpected direction. I still love that we actually see Zoe's work life, and frankly, if all the plots were focused the way hers is, I'd probably like the show a lot more. Last week I made a plea for things to stop working out so perfectly for her, and this time, she did have something of a miserable ending — but not because of her kids or her family commitments or her own poor decisions. As soon as she started making friends with her client's wife, I was sure the story would end with her confessing her client's dalliances and then being fired for losing the deal. Nope, Zoe handed over her dignity for the sake of the deal — and then still got passed over for a promotion. Good for her for quitting. Now, how will she adjust to being a mom?

Only one more episode to go, and with the show's mediocre ratings, I'd say there's not a great chance for renewal — though anything can happen. But say next week is the end of Cashmere. How would you want it to wrap up?

i think it's the cattiness of the show makes people stay away from it...love the gay relationship but all of them are fiesty and that is not all good...they are mature but then once they get together they act catty highshool girls. i did see this when my niece was in grade 7 and 8. i was shock how they managed there role like that. it's over the top and the editing are so bad. all their sotry is thre right on you eye. wish they could do ther story slower like LIPSTICK JUNGLE and more sensitive. lipsrick is a great show. it show women really has flaws and yet doing their best. great issues shown in lipstick jungle and keep watching it. u will like it more and more...just like the book. thankssssss

"btw rachelsluv, is lucy liu completely being igonred in your eyes?" Oh my goodness what an interesting observation considering that Caitlin is was involved with a woman of color and for all intents and purposes one could consider Lucy Liu a woman of color. But I don't really think that Lucy Liu was being ignored See I don't mean to be harsh on my Caucasian sisters, but then again why always cut our storylines in favor of the ones that only feature heterosexual Caucasians? It's a new day Darren Stare and ABC come on get with the program.

I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news but according to Variety Online ratings have been low for CM and it's unlikely the show will return after ep 7. Still I liked it better than Lipstick Jungle. I believe that Darren Star got rid of the Caitlin/Alicia romance because they mistakenly though that would raise ratings, but the ratings were higher when Caitlin was with Alicia/

Oh christ, let's all get over SATC already, it wasn't that great! I really love CM, it's fun and entertaining to watch. LJ...I'm actually watching it right now while I'm writing this, not sure what that says. Lucy Liu is a GREAT lead! I hope CM succeeds!

not really a fan of a second rate imitation show. i rather watch Satc. though i am sure the show is funny and over the top clothes. i am done with that from the Satc. lipstick is a little more mature and the simplicity of the story and wearable clothes and the choice of actors surely what makes more viewers watch it. i guess cashmere are all beautiful people from outside. it does looks like it. and deep down all catty. it's fun but i rather watch uglybetty when it comes to fashion and cattiness than watching cashmere. I love lipstick jungle it really shows some womens sensitivity and flaws and yet they stand on what the believe in. it makes the show stronger. not weak like some people says. it's really different from cashmere.

I like Cashmere MAfia more than Lipstick Jungle because I feel more compelled to watch CM. It's nice to just lay on your bed and watch, while, with LJ, I leave it on in the backround. btw rachelsluv, is lucy liu completely being igonred in your eyes?

"I'm glad that Caitlin is getting away from the drama too; I think she should be thrilled! " "Jack, He's just having man issues. And how cute is he? " Oh so Jack can dump Mia, find another gal but if Alicia's ex returns to want to reconcile her family that's drama? Don't count your chickens before their hatched ladies because the final episode hasn't aired and since I know the components necessary for a screenplay there is always time for the writers to do what is referred to as a: "Reversal" meaning that both Caitlin and Alicia could have a change of heart.

First off the only WEIRD thing about Alicia and Caitlin's storyline was the lack of one. While the heterosexual couples hogged up all the face time Alicia and Caitlin's romance was neglected because the writers were incompetent. Second: Straight people have blended families all of the time and they cheat more and are more hypocritical. So don't give me this "weird" line. Third: All of us are not "white" women, the networks shove this archetype down out throats on a daily basis. For example teen star Miley Cyrus is more Filipno and Latin than she is white but her profile usually says white. Seeing a woman of color who is a lesbian and an executive was rare, and some of us enjoyed the character.

I'm glad that Caitlin is getting away from the drama too; I think she should be thrilled! I am loving this show and really hope that it gets renewed. :(

also, another thing, i don't like the lipstick jungle credits/opener, it's too man-centered for how "strong" they want the women to be. both of them deal with women power issues, but CM just does it better with being more righteous and almost ignoring the men, just like SATC.
ktacce ktacce 8 years
hahahaha indielove. I seriously love Jack, ya'll! He's just having man issues. And how cute is he? argh. and I heart this show too. CM is way better than LJ, though with the strike i'm so bored that I'm watching both. and i think nita got it right, CM women ARE stronger, ballsy and funnier than LJ.

I'm really starting to love this show. But have you noticed that any female character not in the quartet is catty/has some ulterior motive? Regardless, I love how the CM women stand up for themselves, whereas the LJ women seem a little weak.
katieb1019 katieb1019 8 years
I actually really like both CM and LJ. I like how feisty the women of CM are...they have attitude but also occasional glimpses of insecurity. I enjoy the focus on Zoe, Mia and Juliet's careers and personal lives. I wish Caitlin's character was as well rounded. I hope the show comes back. I think its too early to tell about LJ...I think there is definite potential after they do a little more character development. And I LOVE Andrew McCarthy! He made the show for me.

i have to admit that the show is growing on me quite a bit. i didn't really LOVE it when it first started - and now i really enjoy it - it's like the more that plotlines develop the better it gets. maybe tonight's LJ will be better too. i think that it's good to have 2 shows that are similar that aren't police/crime or ER shows

Caitlin is not a lesbian. She needs to get over that phase. Silly girl. She's a pretender.
