Episode Recap

The girls throw a campaign party for Gil Kessler, a local politician who is trying to get elected for City Councilman. After the party, Blanche is elected for returning a forgotten folder to Gil's house. Blanche is caught by the press and it becomes a major scandal (since Kessler is a married man.) Blanche assures that nothing happened, but with Blanche, who would you believe?

Blache begins to spend a great deal trying to get the girls to believe her. On the night before the election, Gil tells everyone that he made up the story to improve his image. He also tells them that he had a sex-change operation and until then, he was the housewife of Anna Maria Bonaduchi. The girls are upset about not believing Blanche, but they soon reconcile.
