Episode 41: An Abandoned Baby and An Octogenarian Olympic Hopeful

On the Eve of our Dear Betty White's Birthday, we bring you this LOLfest. Sophia enters a walkathon and while she initially shows a strong performance in the 80+ category, she experiences every runner's worst nightmare and hits the wall. Meanwhile, the other girls decide to babysit the children of the race participants and have two notable guests: a little punk named Norman (whose father is played by Family Feud's Ray Combs!) and baby Emily. Emily takes to Blanche right away, and soon the feeling is mutual. Emily serves as a way for the audience to really get to hear about Blanche's regrets around motherhood and wow is it a heartbreaker. Despite the heavy throughline of Blache's regret and a lowkey neglectful child services agency, this one is full of laugh out loud lines.
