Episode Summary

EDIT
The Mother
AIRED:
Kristin's down-home mother makes her first visit to the Big Apple to see her daughter. Despite Kristin's pleas to her co-workers to mind their language around her mom, since the woman's an even bigger goody-two-shoes than she is, Mrs. Yancey is greeted by a barrage of dirty talk from Tommy, Santa, Aldo and Tyrique. Kristin takes mommy to see her dumpy apartment, but the elder Yancey ruins the night by telling her that she and her father want her to come home, as she's been in New York for 2 1/2 years and still hasn't made it. Kristin goes crying to Tommy and Aldo, because she doesn't want to go home to Oklahoma and can't face the family and friends who thought she'd become a Broadway star. Tommy helps her out by setting it up so she can sing at The Cabaret Room, which ends up setting him back $53,000 and change. He takes out a full-page ad for her, and the event practically sells out, but Kristin's joy is short-lived when she overhears a waiter talking about how Tommy bought out the club, so some no-talent could perform. She pulls Tommy aside, chews him out, gets on the microphone, and apologizes to everyone for what he did. But just when Kristin thinks her mother is going to say told you so, ma tells her she doesn't want her to come home anymore, as she clearly has friends in the city who care about her. Kristin then changes her tune to Tommy, and goes through with the performance he bought -- which she dedicates to her mother.moreless
