We begin Jerseylicious episode 3 with Olivia and Mike deciding on their party-to-relaxing ratio; the two have a week vacation planned in Atlantic City.
We next see Gigi and Tracy both talking about needing work (and income) with Gigi dropping a bombshell on Tracy, she wants to go back to the Gatsby. Gigi then drops another one on Tracy when she tells her she e-mailed an apology to Gayle. Tracy absolutely disagrees with the apology, saying there was no reason too.
Back at the Gatsby, Gayle has to break some bad news to Olivia. She informs Olivia she can’t take the week off because the salon is still short-staffed. Gayle knows she needs more people in the salon but she’s being very careful on who she add. Christy brings up Gigi being a possibility, which Gayle quickly shuts down. “It wasn’t enough for me” she says about Gigi’s apology. It seems Gayle feelings of betrayal by the two ex-employees runs deep.
Meanwhile, Tracy and Gigi press Anthony for a time-frame on when the new Salon will be open. Anthony estimates it’ll be an additional two months – the girls freak out. Anthony suggests in the meantime they can earn some cash working at his current Salon, Anthony Roberts Salon.
Later, Olivia has to break the bad news to Mike; their week-long vacation is no longer in the plans. Olivia suggests something more relaxing, something that will give them time to recoup. She suggests an Amish Country bed and breakfast – this should be really interesting.
Moving on, Tracy and Gigi start at Anthony Roberts and right away there is a small blow-up between Tracy and Jackie Bianchi. Jackie lets Tracy know immediately that they are not looking for any trouble at Anthony’s salon. Who knows if the quick approach from Jackie came from the hormones (she’s pregnant) or if she just wanted to nip it in the bud. Anyways, Tracy doesn’t just let Jackie do all the talking and tries to calm her down. The last thing anyone wanted to see is a pregnant Jackie throwing down with somebody, good thing Tracy took the calm approach.
Next we’re introduced to Anthony Tango, a very handsome 20 year-old gentlemen. Anthony arrives at the Gatsby to apply for a stylist position. The girls, Michelle and Doria, and Miguel immediately notice Anthony and give him some attention.
In Amish Country Olivia and Mike try to get into the culture, which includes wearing some of the local fashion trends – or lack thereof. The two end up enjoying their time down in Pennsylvania and would be open to returning.
After a bad first start at Anthony Roberts Gigi lets Anthony know she can’t continue working in his cramped Salon. Anthony understands her position and says “my door is always open”, reassuring Gigi that he has no problems if she returns to the Gatsby. Although Anthony never admitted to “stealing” Gigi and Tracy from Gayle he does feel responsible for the girls being fired.
As a work day winds down at the Gatsby Christy has a surprise interview for her mother Gayle, Gigi. Gigi stars the conversation by saying she has really wanted to talk to Gayle for some time. She explains her reasoning for looking for other employment but feels she belongs at the Gatsby. “I want to be back here” she says. Gayle doesn’t want to rush into anything so she says she’ll think about it. The thinking doesn’t last too long because the next thing we see is Gigi being introduced as the newest stylist.
