On the series premiere of You, Me, and My Ex, viewers were introduced to the TLC reality series. Exes and their current situations attempt to co-exist.

Though viewers will truly never know, episode two did not disappoint.

Jerry’s Two Women Collide On You, Me, and My Ex

Now that Jessica and Kayee are both living under the same roof, Jerry has to play peacemaker. But it is a struggle when both women have super strong personalities. Jessica goes to tell Jerry she is making breakfast. Kay decides to put in her order of eggs. Clearly, Jessica has to remind Kay she is there for the kids and not a maid. She lets her know she is welcomed to anything in the kitchen.

Soon, alarms go off on Kay’s phone. She has to set one for all of her tasks in the morning. This includes meditating, brushing her teeth, etc. At the breakfast table, Jessica proceeds to sit on Jerry’s lap in front of Kay. She claims to be joking but it’s an overstep. Her biggest issue is she does not feel Kay is pulling her weight in the home. Jerry is passive pretty much the entire time.

They always have family game night but Jessica does not want to participate. She would rather just stay in her room and disassociate. Kay is all about enjoying the games and family time. Finally, Jerry lures her down and the two women try to talk. They do need to come to a common ground, if only for the children. Is that possible?
