LA Hair Episode 11 Recap – Neccesary Roughness
So This Is What Happened:
The fabulous styling team of Kim Kimble went to see a Chaka Khan concert and styled two of her special guests. After they come back, Angela shows up, telling everyone about her experience in Thailand and being a part of Rita Ora’s crew. Kim is upset about her unannounced disappearance and her lack of professionalism and tries to express that, however, it ends in a huge argument, which causes Kim to explode, and Angela to storm out of the salon. The next day Kim addresses the issue one more time, and explains Angela that she will let her go, so she can go her own way.
Just when I started blogging about this show and thought that I will have to damage my screen with a shoe or a coffee cup eventually because of all the craziness that is going on in Kim Kimble’s salon, and actually questioned her authority and ability to run a well-working business, things changed. And they continued changing drastically until this episode’s showdown between Angela and Kim. It was obvious that Kim kept her dissatisfaction about the chaos and non-professionalism in her salon bottled up and had a little meltdown, which is why she kept it sweet and short with Angela at first: Don’t disrespect my authority. If you have an issue showing up for work, tell the manager, not the receptionist. And don’t act like you didn’t know.
With that said, everything would have been fine, but Angela had to say something smart back, and on top of that tell Kim’s sister that Kim has never supported her. Oh my damn! And that’s when Miss Kim Kimble lost it. And I understand that. But not even the fact that Kim – who always keeps it together and has been tolerating all the sh!# that has been going down – freaks out on her, made her shut up for once.
I am so glad that Kim Kimble finally spoke up and did something against this shenanigan in her salon. Hopefully that was a wake-up call for everyone, especially Anthony, because he should take his personal vendetta against China outside of the salon!
Next Kim should tell China to stop acting like a little child whenever she has to face confrontation or criticism, especially when she works with clients, because in my opinion that is even worse than Angela’s behavior. It seemed like things got worse anyway ever since China came along.
Dontay’s drinking issue should be addressed, too, but since it has never caused any problems with his work, it’s not that big a deal, I guess. And Terry’s two-faced phony Christian character is what it is and can’t be changed. I am sure he goes to church just to gossip about others. People like Terry are the reason why my grandma stopped going to church 20 years ago, may she rest in peace.
To sum it all up: Sometimes you have to remind your staff who the boss is, and even if that means that you have to let someone go. Kim Kimble is being serious, and all I can say is, good for her! Angela will do her thing and be good at what she does, but she will have to learn that if she works for someone she needs to show respect and listen. Good Luck for your future, Angela!
