Apparently, although we didn’t see them talk about it, VampEric tells us that the execs didn’t feel that Unanimous had clothes and styling that would reach an Elle audience. This has me laughing, considering Aubrey’s ego about finally being in Elle as a fashion model. For Forte, Sparks tells Lisa that she could likely be fired for being the one to pick out their clothes.
God, I wish Dayana were here right now.
Teresa tells Sparks that if they lose, she’ll bring Arsenio back, since Aubrey was so heavily involved in the concept and the shoot.
Trump announces that the executives felt very strongly that the pictures from the 1970′s with the informational pamphlet was the winning task. Lisa and Clay are excused and Lisa wins 100K for the Gay Men’s Health Crises.
Teresa tells Trump she is beyond shocked that they lost. She says she consults Elle all the time and the crap in the Forte add was in no way Ellesque. I’m paraphrasing her here.
When asked why they didn’t include more information, Teresa tells Sparks that if you look at ads in Elle, they don’t do that.
She has a point.
I haven’t looked at a fashion rag in a very long time (as you would know by the $2 shirts and ancient sweats I sport, should you ever meet me), but I do remember they are usually just a name and an image. They are meant to provoke your interest and have you seeking more. So I get what they are saying. At the same time, Aubrey is particularly subdued in the boardroom and I wonder if it is because she’s worried that Teresa may have a moment of brilliance and point the finger at Aubrey for the concept.
Aubrey is reluctant to assert that Lisa outsmarted Teresa when asked, but it is clear she does think that. When DJ tells Teresa it appears her whole team thinks she was outsmarted, she argues.
That’s impossible, Dorkus. You need smarts to be outsmarted. Duh.
Teresa says Arsenio should be fired because he played it safe. Arsenio is offended at her suggestion that he didn’t contribute, since he used his photography skills during the process. As he begins to point out all the weaknesses Teresa had in the project, he warns her not to throw him under the bus, because he’ll back it up right over her.
I did everything. I had to wrangle Aubrey’s boobs, and exclaim
in delight when the pictures were shot and watch as Aubrey led my team!
Arsenio tells Trump that Teresa isn’t qualified to evaluate how much he contributed because she knows nothing about photography. Teresa interrupts to say that isn’t true. Arsenio asks her what an F-stop is.
Okay, fine, so she knows nothing about actual photography. But she’s still highly qualified because she likes to examine pictures.
I can like, totally look at a picture and know if it’s good or not.
Looks like it’s gonna be Italian tonight. My favorite.
Arsenio suggests Teresa is in over her head at this point. Teresa argues that isn’t the case because she didn’t know anything about an ad campaign and now she does.
I don’t get it either.
Aubrey is asked her opinion, and she says that Teresa wants this very badly. When Sparks asks if she also wants it badly, she shows her age when she answers, “Duh.”
This girl is unbelievable.
Finally, Sparky puts the poor hopeless Teresa out of her misery and fires her. But there’s 25 minutes left and someone else is supposed to be fired. How’s that going to work?
What is airhead going to taste like?
She’ll be light and fluffy – like perfect gnocchi.
So long, housewife! I’m sad you never freaked on the show.
