The execs take off and Aubrey is pitching her ideas. I actually think it’s a pretty good one… she thinks they should tie the idea of Chi, which is sort of a yoga/feng shui concept with a futuristic zen idea…. but then she gets all crazy face and says,
“There should be no words and we should be able to get what the company is saying.”
Aubrey says they will use futuristic lighting and design to promote the future of hair care. Teresa likes the idea because, “We’re in 2012. You know, the future.”
Things aren’t nearly as entertaining in the Forte room. Without Dayana to pretty the place up and get under their skin, they are just plotting their ideas and making all kinds of boring sense. At least we get a little feigned drama as Lisa says if they lose, she’ll attack Clay balls to the wall.
I’d better win this task, since you’ll be landing at
my charity when I’m done with you.
For some reason, the two teams have to meet up outside their war rooms and negotiate for the models they are going to use. The hilarity that ensues is priceless, but since it is an unusual task, I wonder if it wasn’t all someone’s last minute absolutely brilliant idea to watch Lisa pit up against Teresa.
Who knew the casting process could be so entertaining?
Right away, Aubrey tells Teresa she absolutely HAS to get the red head, since Farouk adored Aubrey’s hair so much. They also decide to go for the long haired dude, since the product is meant to have a universal market. Aubrey sends Teresa into the hallway with instructions not to let Lisa get either of their top picks, no matter what.
Meanwhile, in the Forte room, Lisa and Clay are checking out the models and are rather apathetic about who they will use. Frankly they think all of them would work well, so as Lisa walks into the negotiations, she tells Teresa this will be quick and easy.
But then Teresa shows all her cards in the first two seconds of “negotiating” by spilling out that she absolutely has to have Aubrey’s top two picks.
There’s some fun to be had here!
Lisa’s predatory instincts take over – she can’t help herself. She doesn’t really care, but she can see how badly Teresa cares, so she goes for the throat. She tells Teresa they want three of the same people and that Clay absolutely insisted that they get the red head (who, for future reference, is named Alice). She tells Teresa if she really wants Alice that bad, she has to give up her two other girls.
That’s so mean and unfair! I better check with Aubrey.
It’s kind of like kicking a puppy. Is it wrong that I’m finding this funny?
Teresa comes back from her little pep talk with Aubrey and apologizes to Lisa. Lisa says it’s no problem and they decide to start the “negotiations” over. So once again, Teresa flatly states out they want the man and Alice. To which, Lisa bluntly asks, “well who said you could go first?”
Poor Teresa apologizes and asks nicely if she can have Alice. Lisa rips the head shot out of her hand, slams it on the table and says, “No! We started over, bitch.” Then Lisa tells Teresa she can have the red head but she has to take the second male model.
This is so unfair!
I’m pretty much doing this too, as Lisa continues to stick it to Teresa.
