A week has passed since we met the “stars” of Gallery Girls and I am still haunted by memories of the Williamsburg Witches. Chantal, Claudia and Lara are opening a hybrid gallery called End of Century in the Lower East Side where their hobag friend Angela took pictures. Eli Klein’s interns Liz and Maggie arrived but quickly left at the awkwardness of people not wanting them around. Amy and Kerri were off doing whatever because no one cares about them.
Did she expect the others to work?
It’s the morning after End of Century’s semi-grand opening and Claudia arrives by herself at 10AM to start cleaning up after the hipster fest the night before. She says that it smells like a frat house but that’s not true because frat boys drink Miller not Pabst. Claudia works for the next few hours by herself when Chantal decides to show up after doing yoga and drinking french pressed coffee. She looks around and says that the place doesn’t look so bad (because Claudia had been cleaning it for the past 3 hours…) and then tries to come up with a permanent schedule with her. She then leaves because she has more important hipster things to do like shop for skinny jeans that Spencer and her can share or sitting around miserably in a bar talking about politics and running. I’m very shocked at the restraint Claudia has shown because if that was me and my parent’s money was on the line I would have strangled Chantal with her stupid scarf and punched Spencer in his vagina.
For all the dogs that walk by…
Maggie is getting ready in her apartment for her first day back at Eli Klein as an intern by doing her hair and bitching about how weird it will be because of the sexual tension. She doesn’t say sexual but we know that’s what it is. She arrives but her hair is up in a bun which defeats the purpose of her taking the time to straighten and curl it previously. She comments that it took her 6 months to sit up front by Eli and that is where Liz happens to be sitting. Eli has her add more water to the dog bowl at the front of the gallery for the nonexistent dogs walking by. Liz jokes with Eli about putting ice cubes in the water for her dog and how Maggie should do it for the nonexistent dogs outside. He then has her fold plastic bags which will be used to collect dog poop in the conference room. Liz comments that Maggie has a college degree but she’s folding poop bags so she must have done something to Eli. Maggie and Liz talk about a girl who dropped off an application to be Eli’s personal assistant and Maggie reveals that she was Eli’s assistant for a few days. Her duties apparently including picking up his underwear from the floor and putting his shoes and socks on. Yea…that’s called what happens after you bang each other. Later he sends her to Brooklyn (Bed-Stuy I think) to get some badges and she bitches the entire time wondering why a messenger couldn’t be sent for the badges instead of her. Um, you’re an intern and even though you have been an intern for 500 years you still have to do bitch work. Maggie is convinced either a zombie or a crackhead is going to rape her or kill her in the apocalyptic wasteland that is Brooklyn. I think she may have watched Do The Right Thing one too many times.
Walk of Shame?
