Dominique feels really ganged-up on, and like it's Christmas for the other girls when they try to make her feel bad. Hey, my best friend is a gingerbread man! Stop your cookie-ist hate, Dominique. And then Lauren FREAKS OUT!!!! She stands up on her chair and screams that Dominique is always running her damn mouth. While she is doing this, Dominique continues to run her damn mouth. Lauren sits down and screams that Dominique is fucking crazy. Who knew Lauren had it in her, too? She will tie you up with duct tape and beat you with her ratty Converse if you cross her. Damn. ["Not coincidentally, my new favorite girl is now Lauren. Brooklyn, represent!" -- Joe R] Lauren interviews that Dominique has verbal diarrhea. Like, all over her own face, too. It's pretty tragic.
Dominique, meanwhile, is pretty upset about the ganging up. She thinks the girls are doing it because she's so strong, and is very hurt. She talks to her mom on the phone about how everyone hates her. Dominique's mom probably knows this song by heart. And I mean, Claire and Lauren seem pretty even-keeled by nature, so Dominique must be REALLY annoying for them to go off like this. Dominique cries about it in her interview, and says that the other girls have no compassion. It makes me feel a little bad for her, but mostly because her crushing lack of self-awareness. Commercials.
When we return, Dominique is still crying to her mom about how everyone hates her. Her mom tells her to let it go, because she can't control it, and she's on a journey and needs to keep her eyes on the prize. And, like, go read that Eckhart Tolle book that Oprah's always talking about or whatever. Dominique tells us that she doesn't have to go after anyone to do well in the competition -- she just has to be herself and do well and rock her challenges and photo shoots. And, of course, keep acting like a crazy bitch because then she will make it to at least the final four.
