As she deals with that, Rose is dealing with Sophia- who has become a boarding room manager, bartender, and party host.

  • All That Jazz

    Today’s title comes from a musical. I’m not sure if it’s from All that Jazz- the 1979 movie about Bob Fosse’s life or from Bob Fosse’s 1975 smash, Chicago. It was probably chosen because in today’s episode, Michael Zbornak pays his mother a surprise visit. During which she learns his life is basically falling apart and he’s even quit his gig playing sax in a band. So come along as Dorothy learns about tough love, Blanche learns about the Rough variation, Rose fights back- again- and Sophia remains the old one in today’s episode All That Jazz.

  • Dancing In The Dark

    When Rose finds a man who makes her heart sing and her feet swing, she’s as giddy as a school girl.

It will take persistence from Miles and support from her friends for Rose to finally understand how unique and lovable she really is.
