Shannon wants to better herself. It finally hits me who she reminds me of, it's been driving me crazy... she looks like a young Rachel Hunter. The girls are up for their test of the week, Extreme Runway in a mock fashion show. The winner will get a night on the town including going into the studio with recording artist Wycleff Jean. Pretty cool incentive if you ask me.
The girls have three outfits and have to dress and be out on time, hit their marks, and walk well. Elyse comments that these tasks have nothing to do with intelligence and she has no edge being smarter than the other girls. Didn't she know this going in? Shannon is told to leave her blouse unbuttoned but she doesn't feel comfortable with that so she goes with her conscience. The more screen time this girl gets the more I like her. I'd want my daughter to make the same call. Katie is told to use less sex and more presence. Giselle wins the competition. Adrienne doesn't agree, saying Giselle has no self-confidence. I don't know - she comes off pretty confident to this viewer. Giselle is told she won't be going alone and to chose three friends. She chooses the three runners up in the competition, which I think is the fairest way to have done it. Ebony takes it very hard - not only did she really want to go but she seems to not be able to deal with losing very well.
On the way to the studio to meet Wycleff Jean, Adrienne says she wants to yell out the car window, "hey lady, ever get your (bleeped) licked by a fat man in an overcoat?" She says that's her favorite line from a movie. So I ask you, what movie?
Back at the penthouse Elyse unleashes in confessional. I need to write a love letter to the editing team for leaving this in. She says they have the most vapid conversation and she tells us what she thinks... she wants Adrienne to stop interrupting, wants Robin to stop quoting the bible at her, says that Giselle is wasteful, bitchy, stupid, and worthless. Wow. Anyone want to see these guys chatting it up at a reunion show? She was offended by Jay assuming he had to tell her medical school would take a lot of time. I'm with her on this. Katie is the most insincere person she has ever met.
Oh look more Tyra-mail. And it is a little out of sequence since this apparently happened right after winning girls left for the evening. Mail says their second photo shoot will be at 7:30 the next morning for Stuff magazine. Ebony says she wouldn't go down and tell the other girls what was coming but Robin and Shannon do. That's just common decency.
In the studio, Wycleff Jean asks if this is a dream or reality. Awwww... he's a model ego stroker. Like this guy isn't constantly surrounded by beautiful women.
Back at the penthouse, Ebony is practicing her runway walk. She did not like losing this one.
Adrienne says she gets bad vibes from Ebony. That Ebony was going to keep the Tyra-mail to herself bothers her. Robin tells us there is a difference between good competition and sneaky and conniving competition. Robin the competitor didn't go down to tell the other girls, Robin the Christian did. I do agree one should be fair and a good sport in a competition and it bespeaks character that will hold you in good stead in life, however anything short of cheating is fair so you can't really be surprised Ebony would put her own best interests ahead of doing the decent thing. Ebony makes that point saying that it is a competition and not high school. Actually, I think she is acting very high school, but that's just me, I don't remember high school being filled with decency and fair play. They are having some kind of house meeting about it and Ebony is freaking out very loudly about the whole thing. I was intimidated from here, I can't imagine what it would have been like to try to have a dialogue at that time. So Robin stops trying to talk to her and starts singing. Every time Ebony would speak Robin would sing over her. The whole thing is hysterical and, apropos of nothing, she has a hell of a voice. Ebony says Robin's singing was mixing her up. Mission accomplished, Robin.
Robin now has everyone hold hands and say a prayer. "Remove anything negative thing, anything that is not like you. Not of you."
Okay, the fact that this prayer was said over an argument over a photo shoot for Stuff magazine is too funny. I couldn't make that up. I am not saying Stuff is bad or evil, I just find it amusing that it made the cut to Robin being like God and of God. Ha.
Elyse is so uncomfortable, as is Adrienne. Ebony gives the camera a priceless look when Robin is talking about demonic presence. She says this is not a bible study nor a sorority. Wow, you don't often find those two groups lumped together do you?
At the photo shoot Katie says it's her dream to be on the cover of Stuff. Tyra says that it isn't about the body but about the eyes. The body will follow the eyes. I know what she means but I have seen Stuff mag, it's about the body as well. The photographer shoots her first and she tells the girls to watch the sexiness come from her eyes. Katie tells us she has done Playboy and thinks the other girls would be shocked. Oh, I don't think anyone would be surprised.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
