Steve tells the girls that the one thing they can do is laugh it off. If you shut down in front of a guy, they will feel like there is nothing they can do to help. He explains that handling bad situations well will increase a woman’s stock in the eyes of a man. It’s a great lesson and the girls all seem to get it. I wish more of Steve’s lessons were this educational.
With the lesson over, Steve has a new assignment for the girls. They will be going to a comedy club and they will each have to perform a set of jokes, making fun of themselves! The girls are freaking. Most are scared but Stephanie is pissed because she was made fun of for the way she looked her entire childhood and that isn’t a place she wants to return to. To help out the girls, Steve brings in two professionals.
Stephanie is truly upset by the whole thing. I can understand if she was tortured for her appearance as a kid that voluntarily humiliating herself would be hard. But what I don’t get is why she then chose to turn her lips into cartoon balloons and then emphasize them with shiny pink plastic lipstick. Maybe she just wants to control what people choose to make fun of about her.
In any event, she goes so far in her tantrum as to actually pack and decide that she’s going to leave the house. Elizabeth talks her down form the ledge by explaining that she will be crying and terrified right up until the moment she goes on stage and she’s not even sure she can go on stage. But at least she’s going to try. Finally Steph realizes she needs to stick it out and do what it takes to complete boot camp and agrees to perform.
The girls head over to the comedy club and they are in the green room, Elizabeth is practially peeing her panther skirt with fear, but it is Danielle that has a great attitude and fires up the girls, giving them suggestions and boosting their egos. I just can’t make this girl out. One minute I adore her and the next I want to punch her in the face.
Poor Elizabeth has to go first but she saunters out on stage like she hasn’t been trembling back stage this whole time. She does great. Lots of jokes about being a trophy wife, dating men who need viagra, etc.
Donna is freaking hysterical! Her timing is fantastic and her bit is a mix of raunchy and clean humor. Not only that, she paces the stage, engages the audience and even alternates holding the mic and using the stand. She also looks really great up there. She’s an absolute natural.
Shalana jokes about being short with a short but cute set. Despina jokes about how her longest relationship happened because she forgot to break up with the guy. Danielle says she likes her felons to look good for when she shows her friends their mug shot in the paper.
Steph does a great job of explaining that Steve has it all wrong that she doesn’t show emotion. She’s just had too much botox for anyone to see what she is doing.
