Comfort is officially a thing of the past!
In this week's all-new Famously Single, relationship expert Dr. Darcy Sterling challenges the eight celebrities to really step outside of their boxes. While some are totally game for the new tests, others find themselves pushing back against change (ahem, Aubrey O'Day).
Meanwhile, Brandi Glanville lets down her wall and opens up about her difficult marriage and divorce, and the stars are introduced to their mysterious dating coaches.
Recap all of the must-see moments from the latest episode!
1. Meet the Coaches: The celebrities finally meet their dating coaches, Laurel and Robert, for the first time and receive a blast from the night before at the club. The coaches sit down with the group to talk about their observations, but Aubrey isn't the least bit concerned with how her behavior was perceived. "I definitely recognize Rob, but I'm really not worried about anything that I said because I don't say things I don't mean," she says. "So, whatever."
The coaches reveal their thoughts on each of the celebrities from the night out, and Laurel calls Willis McGahee out in front of everyone for propositioning her to meet him the bathroom. "My man Willis fell for the trap," Pauly D jokes. "He actually asked Laurel to have sex with him in the bathroom, and I didn't know any of this went on and finding this out now is like, 'Holy s--t!' He went all in!"
2. Let's Get Real: In her first one-on-one session with Dr. Darcy, Brandi breaks down in tears while talking about her divorce from Eddie Cibrian and his affair with LeAnn Rimes. "I trusted him completely and fully," she explains. "Then, I went to visit him on a movie set, and for the first time I felt like something was going on with the person that he was acting with. That morning, I get a call from a bitchy mom that I'm not really friends with and she's like, 'Have you seen the cover of US Weekly?'"
She continues, "I go to the store, get the magazine, panic attack, crying. It was on Access Hollywood, Extra; it's on every cover of every magazine. It's there. It's real. I laid on my closet floor and just sobbed."
3. On the Prowl: For this week's relationship exercise, Dr. Darcy challenges the celebrities to find a date for a sunset boat cruise among the pedestrians on Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade. "We are getting comfortable with discomfort," Dr. Darcy tells them. "That is the name of the game. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
Everyone is nervous, but willing to make an effort. Everyone except Aubrey, that is. "I will glance, but I'm really not sold that somebody in the middle of the day that's shopping is going to be someone that I spend the rest of my life with," she says. "No judgment—except that there was an extreme amount of judgment."
After a bunch of rejection and awkward encounters, each celeb— minus Aubrey—finds a companion for the yacht party. "If I don't want to go on a date with someone random, why should I have to?" Aubrey says. "I'm probably cold and slightly stuck up, but that's just how I am. It is what it is."
4. Three's a Crowd: Even though Aubrey refused to participate in the exercise, she's extremely comfortable crashing everyone else's dates. Brandi is especially unhappy with the extra company. "Aubrey walks up and just interrupts the whole thing," Brandi says. "It was so uncomfortable!"
Fortunately for her, Aubrey doesn't hang around too long after Brandi's date, Preston, reveals he doesn't recognize her. "She was shocked that this guy didn't know who she was," Brandi observes. "She was so turned off by that comment that she walked away. She believes her on hype, and she doesn't know any other way of living."
After that uncomfortable situation, Aubrey floats over to a couple more tables. "Aubrey doesn't want to participate, but then she's going on everyone else's dates!" Dr. Darcy says. "I don't know about these guys, but when I'm on a date, I do not want a third person there."
5. Boat Dash: While everyone is having a good time, Jessica White's poor date is left alone after she ditches him to take a break. "I was tired of talking," she explains. "I was just like, 'I'm going to go the bathroom. I'll be right back.' I didn't go to the bathroom. You can have a very positive exchange with someone and be a drifter and drift off." Okay...
Dating coach Robert eventually has to track her down. He tells her she's making her date feel neglected and convinces her to come back. "Normally, if I'm done with you, I'm done with you," Jessica says. "But that's not nice, so I'm learning that men have feelings too."
6. Lash Out: The day after the boat cruise, Dr. Darcy brings the group together to chat about their experiences with the dates, but the atmosphere becomes uncomfortable when Darcy asks Brandi how she felt about Aubrey's blatant intrusion. "Honestly, I think that Aubrey thinks that she should be sitting over there in your seats," Brandi says, pointing to the dating coaches. "For her, this lesson was beneath her, and I honestly was having a good time with my date and when she walked up we were in the middle of a conversation. He didn't know who she was, and then she walked away. It was highly uncomfortable for my date and for myself."
Aubrey responds to Brandi's assessment of the situation by completely lashing out at her. "You have a really big problem with me and who I am, and it makes you feel very uncomfortable," she says. "I've seen it since the first day I came here. I've been trying to find ways to connect with you because I don't want you feel that way, but I understand that it seeps from your pores. I've tried my best because you're not my cup of tea either, frankly. But I have to live with you, but it's very difficult. Frankly, it's been torturous at some moments. I have no problems discussing my career I'm very comfortable with my success, and I don't have to explain that to anyone."
Brandi, as well as the entire group, is taken aback by unexpected Aubrey's rant. Dr. Darcy interjects and calls bulls--t on Aubrey's statements. "It feels to me like you feel the exact way that you're accusing Brandi of feeling," she tells her. "Because instead of hearing any of the feedback that she gave you, you basically told her, 'I don't like you.'"
7. Face Off: After that confrontation, Aubrey meets with Dr. Darcy privately to explain why felt attacked during the group session. "You were vicious," Dr. Darcy tells her. "Why on Earth would you think that eviscerating her was okay? You slapped the s--t out of her today without ever raising your voice. You humiliated her in group."
"I got defensive," Aubrey replies. "My experience with the truth is f--king blunt, critical and it's usually not pretty." She continues, "What I feel is that I'm not properly being looked at and that happens a lot in my life. You came at me with all these critiques, but you said nothing, and have said nothing, to her. I don't f--king agree with this bulls--t."
Aubrey eventually softens and starts crying while opening up about why she got so heated beforehand. "I want you to know who I am at this point in my life," she says. "I don't feel that that's because of anyone else. I feel that's because of me. I haven't figured out how to have the right tools that can discipline my mind. I want to get out of my own way—in life."
