Jackie starts to cry about being the victim again. She quickly stops and starts talking about how Laura doesn’t want Jackie to be friends with anyone. I personally don’t think Laura gives two shts about who Jackie is friends with this season.
Brooke brings up the dark skinned daughter and Jackie says that she never had a problem with it, but that Ta’kari always had lower self-esteem. (Because the treadmill running wouldn’t have done that to her… it’s gotta be the skin.) Brooke was happy to hear that… Brooke needs to do some research. But instead, Brooke thinks Laura is being conniving. (Okay, she is… but it’s still Jackie’s fault.)
I look ‘real’ stupid.
Yeah, but I look ‘real’ shiny.
And we’re both ‘real’ black.
Jackie brings Doug some iced tea while he’s playing basketball. They sit down and talk about the fact that Chani may be staying in Seattle and Jackie isn’t too happy. Doug says that maybe the reason she puts distance between herself and Jackie is because Jackie is too controlling. Jackie doesn’t agree. Doug does a little tap dance to end the conversation.
Jackie brings up Malaysia’s 80s themed skate party and wants Doug to go with her as Bonnie and Clyde, “because that’s an 80s thing”. (No idiot, it’s not… but please wear that costume anyway.) Doug isn’t interested (unless he can be Bonnie) and again, he sashays his way out of that conversation too.
They talk about Jackie (read, VH-1) being invited to NY’s Fashion Week. I am floored. I thought Fashion Week was supposed to be the be-all end-all in fashion… or close enough… but Jackie’s tragic designs? Oy vey. Jackie brings up whether she should bring Laura along with the other girls and I could care less. Even though I know she does bring her and I’m v happy about that.
I wonder if he’s a ‘real’ man?
So what… I wonder if you’re a ‘real’ man.
Jackie asks Malaysia to go to a nasty fabric store with her to pick out some fabric for a design that she must have. Malaysia is wearing her ridiculous glasses and taking it all seriously. Jackie yammers on about how important this is to her. (While wearing a hideous dress.) Jackie wonders if she should bring Laura, and even Skittles-for-brains, Malaysia says it may not be a good idea.
This place is ‘real’ classy.
Jackie interviews that “fashion is her passion”… She asks Malaysia to help host the pre-party, but then someone it gets changed that Malaysia is going to walk in the show, wearing something fabalas (that’s how she says it “fab-a-las”).
Those bangs are ‘real’ bad.
Double whammy, those glasses are ‘real’ bad.
Malaysia and Bambi are invited to meet with a friend of Malaysia’s who actually does something positive for kids. He has a program where kids can play basketball as long as they keep their grades up. He provides basketball games and tutors. I immediately decide that I want Bambi to tutor me in English and Malaysia to tutor me in Math.
