Katrina is excited to meet with Tiki Barber because she’s a huge fan of his. That’s pretty much all we hear about Tiki Barber or Katrina this episode, so I hope everyone enjoyed it.
Ed Bereno agrees to auction of a walk-on part on Third Watch. Nick says that he loves the challenge of working with his team to raise money for a good cause.
The next stop is Rocco’s, for a meeting with Rocco and Mama. Yay, I missed Mama! Tammy starts the preposterous negotiations by suggesting that Rocco rent a chateau in Europe to go on vacation with the winner of the auction. Rocco says that’s more money than he’s able to donate. He looks really uncomfortable. Amy says that they “pretty consistently count on Tammy saying something we wish we could erase.”
Jessie and Omarosa meet with Kate White. Omarosa mentions some charity work Kate has done in the past, and Kate is impressed that Omarosa has done her homework.
Nicole Miller offers an internship to work with her. Wow, that’s a cool donation. Heidi says that it’s important that everyone’s spirits be high, or they won’t be successful.
Next, Protégé meets with Isaac Mizrahi. Jessie takes the lead and starts very slowly explaining what an auction is and how it all works. Isaac says that she’s talking to him as if he’s never heard English before. Jessie apologizes, and he says it’s okay, “You’re a doll.” Yet Jessie continues to talk down to him. In an interview, Omarosa says that Jessie’s manner of speaking was clearly irritating Isaac, it was annoying the hell out of her, and she noticed Trump’s viceroy George cringing.
Omarosa obviously thinks she can do better, so she starts interrupting Jessie to add her own ideas. Someone suggests that they do something during Fashion Week, and Isaac hates the idea, since it’s his busiest week. Isaac looks miserable. He obviously wants to help, but the team hasn’t made a single suggestion that he likes.
It’s country boy to the rescue again! Troy suggests that Isaac offer a preview of his next collection, along with eight outfits. Isaac loves the idea. “Fun!” he cries, and he and Troy hug. Omarosa almost torpedoes his good will however, when she mispronounces “Mizrahi.” Isaac looks stricken. Omarosa apologizes and says he should forget it. Isaac asks if a potential president of one of Donald Trump’s companies just told him to forget it. Still, in spite of Omarosa’s blunder (and I do have more to say about that), Troy says that when it comes to negotiating, Jessie is the weakest link.
Isaac Mizrahi isn’t exactly a minor celebrity. He’s had his own TV shows, he’s been in movies… the even man designs clothes for Target! Shouldn’t Omarosa have heard his name pronounced enough times so she’d know how to pronounce it? And even if she’d never heard of him before, shouldn’t she have taken the time to make sure she knew how to say his name? Finally, wouldn’t you think that someone with an unusual name like Omarosa would be a little more sensitive about pronouncing someone’s name right?
At Versacorp, the team is talking about how crazy Tammy’s ideas are. Someone (Bill, I think) says, “She’s not only not on the same page; she’s not reading the same book.” Amy starts to say something and Nick shushes her. Playful banter ensues about whether Nick’s shushing Amy makes him the sort of strong man that she claims to like, or if it makes him an annoying guy who shouldn’t shush her. It’s very flirty and cute.
Versacorp’s next meeting is with Regis Philbin. Bill says that he has “a high level of concern about Tammy.” Amy pitches the first idea to Regis: a day in the life of Regis Philbin. Regis thinks it would be boring – on a typical morning, he gets up, has some cereal, and feeds his cat. In an interview, Tammy says that while the rest of her team has some simple plans, she’s all about the big ideas. She busts out what is indeed a big idea when she suggests that Regis donate a trip for four with Regis, his wife Joy, the winners, “and maybe another couple” to Regis’s favorite vacation spot in the world. Like Carson Daly, Regis is dubious about the idea of going on a vacation with someone he’s never meet, so Tammy suggests it be for just two days. Amy gently steers the topic into rational territory. With Amy’s help, Regis agrees to donate a limo ride to Atlantic City, passes to see the dress rehearsal of one of his shows, and a late dinner with the man himself. As the group leaves Regis’s dressing room, everyone touches a good luck sign above the door, except for Tammy, who claims to be too short to reach it.
I’m starting to wonder if Tammy was raised by especially socially awkward wolves.
It’s auction night at Sotheby’s, and all of the candidates are dressed up and ready to see who wins. Katrina is confident that her team will win. Jessie is all agog, because she usually goes to farm auctions.
Bowling with the Fab Five sells for a fab $9,000.
A day with Regis Philbin nets $6,000.
Isaac Mizrahi’s fashion package goes for $7,000.
Rocco Dispirito has donated a private party at Rocco’s for fifty guests. Wow, that’s really generous. The crowd must agree; it goes for $13,000.
Something described as a “Cosmo day” with Kate White sells for $6,000.
A walk-on for Third Watch is worth $7,000.
To be Nicole Miller’s apprentice, you don’t have to go on TV; you just have to donate $6,000.
The “Tiki Barber lot,” whatever that is, goes for $4,000.
Russell Simmons’s donation gets a bid of $7,000.
The last item up for bid is the night with Carson Daly. Bill is worried, thinking that the package with Carson won’t sell for more than the Regis Philbin package. Bill didn’t count on a young lady in the audience who is apparently Carson’s biggest fan. She bids $10,000.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
