He already lets them sell cupcakes in the diner, so probably no biggie there.

It is completely unrealastic that he didn't know that room was there.

In a logical universe, there would be a difference: selling cupcakes inside the diner doesn't take them away from serving his customers, while selling cupcakes in a separate room does.  Also, in a logical universe, he'd be getting a cut from the cupcake sales in the diner (or he'd be buying them from Max and retailing them to customers, but we're supposed to believe that the cupcakes are sold separately).

And with that, "2 Broke Girls" has taken more of my thought time for today than it deserves.

Well they sold the cupcakes in the other store in the morning and worked nights at the diner, so now they'll be all day at the diner

However it turns out, we can be sure that the outcome will be unrealistic, inconsistent, and loaded with references to body parts and bodily functions.  The important things are Dennings's breasts.

I'm not worried about things like "logic" with this show, because I don't expect it to be logical. For example, logically Caroline and Max (and Oleg, for that matter) can't be the only employees at this diner, that makes no sense. They'd be there all day every day seven days a week, and we see them go out of town for weekends and stuff like that. Is the diner just closed?

But unrealistic for me is that Han literally did not know of the existence of another room in his lease. That's beyond logic.

None of us are.  Sometimes it's diverting to point out the particulars of the discontinuities and inconsistencies, though.

They had a chance to quietly boot Sophies fat ass off the show and what do they do... Let her fat face shout even louder and break stuff... Great.

IMO Sophie is Coolidge's most obnoxious character since "A Cinderella Story."

Shrug, I do not understand the Sophie hate. I think she is one of the few funny things about the show.

Politely disagree.

But if I were Sophie, I'd barge into your apartment, eat your food, and break your things without apologizing.

She's only slightly less insufferable than Caroline, who continues to sabotage Max's attempts at meeting guys, getting a job, or generally being successful at anything (likely out of jealousy and sense of superiority from her higher-class upbringings).

And the bum urinating on Caroline. Isn't that some sort of major taboo?

Yeah, that was really somethiing! And they really did have some really risque lines.

Overall though i thought this was NOT one of their better efforts.

And the one scene where Caroline got out of bed in those incredible short pj shorts, they only showed her legs for about 2 seconds. bummer, sexy as hell.

never take life seriously

I have to admit while I still find large parts of the show not funny I laughed a lot at certain parts of the show. I really wish they would drop the Max insulting herself every 10 minutes. It is getting old, and it still is not funny.

Agreed.  Jennifer Coolidge has been typcast for characters that capitalize on her physical size and the attention that directors expect it to pull as if attention were a mass subject to gravitation.  Sophie Kachinsky is not among the exceptions.

It wouldn't surprise me if Coolidge herself would find it a relief to play someone who didn't have to be loud and showy every moment of her screentime, but for most of her career, over-the-top roles have paid her bills.

How did this show get renewed? Who watches it? When I saw it was on for another season, my wife and I thought, OK, let's check it out. Writing is awful and I cannot really call it acting. They say their lines and that is it. Really terrible. We lasted 10 minutes. I think Garrett Morris was actually the only one who wasn't a stiff. And yes, I do get sarcasm, but didn't believe it could be an entire characters' and show's dialogue.

By design. It's a parody of sitcoms. If you take it any other way you'll be sadly mistaken. :)
