Well Gasmii this is it, the last episode of NYC Prep and this episode has it all. There is backstabbing, selfishness, greed, and envy with a twist of hate. Sounds like an evil cocktail.
So pop open your can of Red Bull and make yourself a last Jaeger Bomb, light up and smoke those ciggies or other smoking materials. You’ll need all the help you can get to make it through this episode. It’s funny how charity can bring out the worst in some people.
We start out this week with Sebastian hanging out with Gabe. It turns out that Gabe and Sebastian should probably not spend so much time together.
No amount of charity work will make up for this dumb move.
Gabe and Sebastian were photographed this week making swastikas out of tape and putting them in the window of the car they were riding in. It caused a big uproar. Sebastian’s father says the reason the boys did it is because they had just seen the new Brad Pitt movie “Inglorious Basterds”. Gabe completed his salute to Nazis by sporting a piece of tape that looked like Hitler’s mustache. This did not go over very well and caused Sebastian’s father to issue a statement explaining that the boys didn’t mean any harm and that they were sorry they did that. Yes, I bet they are sorry especially after someone explained WWII to them.
Anyway, Sebastian wants to start his own charity event to provide water wells in Africa. He rattles off a couple of statistics and explains why this is so important to him. He thinks having a charity event is a win-win proposition because it shows his sensitive side to girls which helps him “hookup” and plus he might actually help people that really need help, the Africans without safe drinking water. Help yourself. Read a book.
This is a surprisingly good idea that Sebastian came up with. I don’t know if it’s because Sebastian really has a good heart or he is in dire need of community service hours for his college applications or he is in dire need of a hookup with some random girl. It’s probably a combination of all three.
On the other side of town, PC is waiting to meet Taylor and talk to her about skipping his party. She says she was sorry that she missed his party but PC says there is no excuse and that it was very disrespectful of her to stand him up like that. I guess only PC is allowed to stand up people, probably because he goes to private school and she is just a lowly public school girl.
PC is trying to train this public school girl, but it isn’t going as well as he planned it. Where is that rolled up newspaper when you need it?
Taylor is getting fed up with PC’s attitude and finally blurts out “I’m not your social experiment.”
Oh yes you are Taylor. You didn’t really think he wanted to be your friend did you? He probably used the time he spent with you as his community service hours on his college applications. Come to think of it, it was probably the only community service he did in his high school career. “I helped introduce a poor and pathetic public school girl to things she’s never seen or experienced. It opened a whole different world for her and yet I managed to keep her in her place by not allowing her access to all of the private school secret good stuff, like the gold treasure, diamonds, etc.”
Is it just me or does this look like PC when he was a little kid?
PC tells Taylor, for future reference it’s rude not to show up, it’s disrespectful. Then PC leaves in a huff. Taylor is not upset, she thinks PC is kind of a doofus. She’s right. I guess in PC’s world, he can act like a jerk and not show up for things, and that’s fine. But when someone, like a little public school nobody does that to him, he comes unglued. What a jerk.
Listen you public school peon, I’m rich and I can be rude and late and a no-show, you must obey the rules of polite society or else I won’t be your friend anymore! Nyah!!
Back to Sebastian, he is still planning his charity event. I thought he would lose interest because he’s not very smart and this actually will require some work on his part. But he’s still working on it and he asked Kelli to sing at the event. At first she says no, but then she says she’ll think about it. Sebastian is right, she should do it for exposure and to help him with a good cause. When we leave these two, Kelli is still thinking about singing for Sebastian. I have a feeling her manager will want her to participate in this event, free publicity and word of mouth is a good thing for Kelli I hope she sees that.
Kelli talks to Sebastian about singing at his charity event. She’s not sure she wants to do this but he is asking her nicely and it is for charity after all.
Come on Kelli, sing for the charity, please?
Meanwhile, Jessie the Queen, is doing a photo shoot for the Operation Smile event. She is acting as a model for a promotional mailer to invitees to this event. And no, she is not the “before” picture. They have made up Jessie’s eyes with so much liner and mascara, she vaguely resembles Alice Cooper. I don’t think it’s intentional.
Please give money to Operation Smile or we’ll be forced to see more of this.
As usual Jessie invited PC to watch this shoot and to help her during the photo shoot. I don’t know why she thought this was a good idea. The only person that PC wants to see in a picture, is himself or himself with a hot guy. Not Jessie and certainly not Jessie with a hot guy.
Jessie actually looks pretty good and it also looks like they either ratted her hair a lot or they added some fake hair. The overall effect is kind of pretty and she looks good. PC is an ass, he mocks Jessie and when she poses with the male model he says “you guys have the same size boobs.” Way to be supportive PC.
“Hey! Which eye am I suppose to be looking at? I’m gettin’ dizzy.”
Jessie tries hard to ignore PC and is successful. PC is irritated that no one is listening to his suggestions so he leaves the shoot. Jessie is relieved she doesn’t have to listen to his insults any longer. Besides, she’ll hear enough insults after she mails out the promotional materials containing these pictures.
It’s time to visit our other cast philanthropist. It’s the night of Sebastian’s charity event to build wells in Africa. Sebastian invited mostly girls to the event. He likes to be surrounded by private school girls who think he speaks French very well and who are easily impressed by his hair flips. Plus their parents all have loads of money and can donate to his charity.
Kelli arrives to sing at the event, with her stylist and her vocal coach. They join Camille at her table. Kelli is wearing a lot more makeup than she normally wears and it looks good on her. She should wear eyeliner more often it really makes her look more mature.
Kelli is out in public to sing. No more one person concerts in the bathroom, she’s singing to the crowd tonight at Sebastian’s charity event.
Also in the audience, chatting up as many young girls as possible is Jeff, Sebastian’s Dad. I can see where Sebastian gets his technique although when Jeff leers at a girl younger than his own son, it just looks gross. Jeff looks like a typical business man, drinking too much and hitting on young girls. Very, very bad.
Sebastian’s Dad is proud of his hair flipping son’s charity work. Plus there are a lot of pretty girls at this thing and very few men.
Sebastian gets up and makes a speech. Unfortunately the speech is on a MAC and it’s setup several feet away from the podium. Sebastian doesn’t know the speech by heart so it’s a little stilted because he has trouble seeing the monitor. But he gets through the speech and explains what he is trying to do and then he introduces Kelli by telling everyone that she didn’t want to sing at this event.
Nice move Sebastian, now Kelli gets the microphone and feels like an idiot because he has just told the whole group that she didn’t want to sing for them tonight.
Kelli sings well and it’s nice to see her sing for more than one person. All Kelli needs is some original material and a big break. She has enough talent to sing professionally. I have the urge to drop down to my knee and put my hands up and say “Superstar”. Seriously, she’s a very good singer.
Who knew that voice in her head could actually sing?
Sebastian is also basking in the glow of his charity event success. His party was a big success and he said that he guesses he can be called “a ladies’ man” now. It seems like this kid is always on the prowl for some unwitting young girl to seduce. I’m sure he got this from his Dad. I wish both of them would stop, but they are destined to be those guys who are always hitting on some poor girl.
Dude, your hair flip thing looks really old. Move on or at least wash your hair before you start flipping it around and getting your dirty hair in everyone’s drinks.
Jessie is hosting a dinner party for her Senior Class friends. She’s invited Dan, PC, Zoe and Kat. As they are talking, Jessie brings up the fact that they are all going to college and all have acceptance letters, except PC. I think Jessie is being a bitch by bringing this up again, plus she is going to FIT. I’m sure it’s a great school, but let’s face it it’s not Ivy League or even Big Ten.
PC calls Jessie on her behavior and asks her if she is becoming a bitch again? Duh, of course she is.
PC tells Jessie to be nice and what is her response? Of course, she gets up and walks out in a huff. In other words, she’s just abandoned her own party. As she’s leaving she says she knew it would end this way. I guess when you constantly pick on your friends and they insult you in return, you end up leaving alone from a lot of social gatherings. At least she’s used to it by now.
Come on you guys, I only have a few more minutes to insult you before my ride gets here so listen up.
The next day PC and Jessie meet to talk about their problems. PC is acting very sorry. He doesn’t want to lose her friendship and he is worried they are growing apart. He tells her that he cares about her and that it’s hard seeing their relationship deteriorate. Huh? He almost sounds like a really nice guy. He looks really sincere like he really needs her as a friend.
Jessie tells PC that she “can’t NOT care about you”. PC is relieved that they are still friends even though they won’t be seeing each other very much anymore, after high school ends.
Look PC you better apologize to me and look me right in my good eye. You know we are destined to be besties forever.
So far we haven’t seen much of Taylor and Camille, this unlikely duo is shopping. I should say that Camille is shopping and Taylor is watching. Camille is shopping for a very expensive pearl and diamond necklace. Taylor tells her about PC being mad at her. Taylor says that Camille gives good advice about 1 out of every 1000 times, but she will be big in the prep school scene next year, so she wants to keep Camille as a friend, which explains why Taylor is watching Camille try on jewelery.
Camille tells Taylor that she is the most unique person she’s ever met. At first I thought it was because of Taylor’s dancing or maybe her politics (liberal). But then Camille says “you are the only one of your kind that I’ve met.”
I know Camille is very obnoxious and that she thinks I’m a different species, but she’s going to be big in the “prep school scene” next year, so I’m sticking to her like glue.
Maybe I’m a little suspicious, but that almost sounds like Taylor is the only public school girl she has ever met. I know that’s probably not what she meant, but for a second there, that’s what I got out of it.
Sebastian’s Dad Jeff is congratulating his son on his charity work. He tells him that he needs to start thinking about things down the road and that he needs to buckle down in school so he can get into a great college. Jeff tells Sebastian that he is going to have to say “no” to some invitations so you can get all your work done.
Sebastian agrees with his Dad and tells him he is working hard and that he will continue to work hard in school. Even Sebastian realizes that he is going to have to work hard and get into a great school and then get a good job, to maintain the lifestyle he is living right now.
Listen son, your going to need more than a hair flip and a few French phrases to make it in the business world. So study.
It’s finally the day of Jessie’s big charity event for Operation Smile. It’s a weird coincidence that this same charity had fundraisers featured on this show and on “Miami Social”. I hope the extra publicity drove more dollars to this cause, it’s a good cause.
A few episodes ago, Camille went to visit Jessie at her house and asked to join as a volunteer for the Operation Smile committee. Jessie explained how things worked and seemed happy about the offer of help, but told Camille that she doesn’t like lazy people and will not put up with any bullsh**. Pretty simple, right?
Well here it is right before the event and Camille has asked to meet with Jessie who is very busy. Camille says that Jessie never called her. Jessie says that Camille is the one who should have followed up and that she gave her the web site. Camille interrupts and says she wrote a letter, Jessie tells her it’s too late and that she doesn’t have time for this. At this point Jessie grabs a cab and leaves.
I think there are two sides to every argument and possibly eight sides to this argument. Jessie says she told Camille to go to the web site to find out about the meetings and the committees. Camille says Jessie should have done follow up and invited her to join a group.
Jessie isn’t taking any crap from Camille.
I think both of them have valid reasons why Camille wasn’t included in this year’s event, but (surprisingly) I have to take Jessie’s side on this one. If you want to be involved, jump right in and be involved, don’t wait for someone to invite you. If Camille really wanted to get in on this charity, she should have made a bigger effort. Or if she could have moved onto another charity like the well water thing Sebastian is working on. There are several established charities that provide wells for Africa and they can all use money to build more wells.
Jessie is getting her hair and makeup done for the Operation Smile event. She is very happy to have the professional hair guy for the event, doing her hair. This hair guy will bring a couple of assistants to help with the models hair for the fashion show part of the evening.
Jessie is all dressed for the event and is busy greeting people. She is wearing a “bandage” dress these were all the rage a few months ago. Basically it’s like making a dress out of ace bandages, the kind they wrap your ankle with when you sprain it. Her dress is very tight from the hips down and is very short. It looks like a champaign color and she’s wearing stilettos.
Jessie is wearing more makeup than normal and has her hair done and in that dress she looks very nice. The lighting is dim so no one even notices the wonky eye and she is smiling a lot and it looks good on her. She’s still barking orders and running around like an alley cat on crack, but still she looks good.
Jessie poses on the red carpet. She looks pretty good and from this distance both her eyes look like they are pointing in the same direction.
PC, Sebastian, Kat, Gabe, Kelli and Camille are all at the event and everyone is congratulating Jessie on the big turnout. The fashion show part will feature several top designers including Jessie’s employer, Carmen Marc Valvo. When PC sees Jessie he offers to go over and apologize to CMV for bringing extra guests to his private party. PC actually does go over and apologizes to the man and actually sounds sincere. I think CMV was a little impressed by PC’s gesture. Jessie says she had no doubt that PC would do the right thing. She’s quite an optimist.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m beginning to think PC’s body was abducted by some nice midwestern person with morals and feelings. He’s just being very humble and nice, to all sorts of people and I haven’t heard him insult anyone yet. Either that or they are editing him to be nice this week.
It looks like PC, but I think it’s really the kid that played Eddie Munster. How else can you explain the personality change?
Suddenly, Jessie is confronted by one of the up and coming designers who tells her that two of the dresses for the show are missing. While Jessie runs to find the dresses, we are treated to Camille and Kelli.
Camille is talking about how Jessie kept her from participating in the event because she wouldn’t let Camille help. Seizing an opportunity, Camilla runs over to Dee Dee and Tatiana and introduces herself and tells them that she has been trying to get involved but Jessie stopped her from getting involved. Camille has just lobbed a grenade and it appears that Jessie doesn’t even know she was a target.
So I’m Camille, the one that is throwing Jessie under the bus tonight and hoping to be in charge of this event next year.
Tatiana and Dee Dee looked a little stunned as they go off to find Jessie to see how things are going behind the scenes. I was hoping they would confront Jessie about Camille’s comment, but no such luck. Bravo built this up like Camille would do something underhanded to wreck Jessie’s charity event and that there would be a big controversy. Well thanks again Bravo, a big nothing once again.
Meanwhile, Sebastian and Gabe arrive at the event. Sebastian is talking to Gabe about girls. No kidding. Sebastian says that he’s thinking that he needs to find one girl and love her. Sebastian turns to Gabe and says “What do you think?” Sebastian’s Dad must be so proud, his son is thinking of loving just one lucky girl. I bet he means one serious girl and many casual hookups.
Meanwhile The missing dresses are located but Jessie notices some of the models are missing and they should be getting ready for the show. She smells something and goes down the hall and to another part of the building and finds them all back there smoking pot. Nice. Jessie, yells at two young men and kicks them out for smoking pot. But Jessie needs the models, so she can only get rid of the young men who brought in the pot.
Jessie has solved the problem of the missing dresses and booted a couple of pot smoking kids. She’s still holding this thing altogether. It’s just a few minutes before the fashion show is going to start so there is time for her to run back out to the party. It’s really a lovely older building with marble floors that make a lovely clicking sound when you are running in heels. Of course the lovely marble floors are also slippery, especially when you are running in stilletto heels and not really watching where you step, just like Jessie.
As Jessie enters the party from the stage, she is going down the stairs when she FALLS DOWN THE STAIRS IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE PARTY!!!
The thud heard round the world.
Everyone saw it, Camille had to cover her mouth to keep from laughing out loud, no one rushed to see if she was ok. Typical. Unfortunately that was the big controversy of this show. Watching Jessie fall down a flight of stairs turns out to be the highlight of the night. Notice as she falls her thighs clamp together so she doesn’t flash her “Britney” at the folks at the party.
Like a true lady, Jessie clamps her legs together as she falls.
It’s finally time for the fashion show. Jessie comes out in a fuschia dress and has a big smile on her face. When she is introduced Camilla calls her “Cruella De Ville” to her companions at her table. Basically, Camilla is not at all happy with this event because Jessie successfully pulled off a big event with no help from Camilla.
Jessie makes a speech thanking everyone for coming and helping with this charity. Then the show starts and the models come out wearing various fashions from a lot of expensive and well known names.
As the models come out, Camilla is busy telling anyone who will listen that the show is awful. She wants to know who decided the order of the fashions and complains that there is no consistency. She says it’s the worst fashion show she has ever seen.
In this group bitching and money will get you everywhere.
The fact that Jessie did this all on her own (because no one is allowed to help her) and that she wants to work in fashion and is accepted to FIT and is interning for CMV are all the reasons that Camilla is picking on this fashion show. I think Camilla has a jealous streak about a mile long and it won’t be over for her until next year’s event that Camilla will present and try to outdo Jessie’s event. I can just see it now. Camilla will probably include her SAT score on the invitation just to show that she is a true academic “star” of NYC and that she is a force to be reckoned with. If that doesn’t work, she can always have Daddy send an enormous contribution to the charity.
Luckily this fashion show is just as long as other fashion shows, in just a few minutes it’s over.
Still talking about himself, Sebastian says that next year his aim is for a smaller number of girls, but only hotter girls. So he is going for quality not quantity. Good for you Sebastian, way to have a goal for your senior year. Where are you going to college? University of Pimps? or how about Tramp Univ.? You can major in scamming girls with a minor in hair flipping.
Sebastian to no one in particular. “Yup charity work has opened my eyes. I need to go for hotter girls, better quality, less quantity.” Women all over the world heave a sigh of relief.
And just so we don’t have to wonder and ruin what is left of our summer, PC was accepted into Occidental in LA. For those of you on the west coast, especially the Los Angeles area, good luck. You might be able to catch PC at a club. He’ll be the guy wearing liner and being totally disgusted with everyone at the club.
Sebastian will soon be hanging out with the glitterati in West Hollywood. He and Mary Kate might make a cute couple. I’m sure we’ll find out, he doesn’t seem like the quiet out of the spotlight type of guy.
Thanks for watching this train wreck GASMII.
Love and luck,
