Back to the house. The girls are eating, and Yaya says of Amanda, "This is the mommy of the house." In this scene, by the way, Julie is wearing a hilariously large pair of sunglasses on top of her head. Oh, I love Julie. Damn this show! Amanda interviews that she is a "wonderful, loving, hippie mom that wants everybody to love each other." If by "wonderful, loving, hippie" she means "skanky, irritating, blind" then I am in total agreement. Amanda says, "Whenever anybody needs something, ask me and I'll get it." Cassie, having eaten one lima bean, says, "I'm full now." Amanda, I think that means she wants a barf bag. Hop to it, why don't you.
Tyra Mail! A rhyming couplet indicates that it's time for makeovers. Whooooop! May I just note that, in this scene, Amanda is wearing a bra and low-riding jeans that totally show her underwear. It may seem trivial, but I'm collecting evidence to justify my hatred of her. It's only four minutes into the show, and I'm feeling pretty confident that I'll have an indisputable case in another six. Julie says, quite hilariously, "Maybe I'll get rid of this good Indian haar." Oh, Julie, the times we had.
We are at the Peter Coppola Salon. Mr. Jay explains that the girls are there to get a makeup lesson, and that he is going to teach them how to get a clean, fresh, easy, breezy, natural look using Cover Girl cosmetics. Which, let me assure you, is the first of many times in this episode that we'll be hearing about Cover Girl cosmetics. And, of course, the girls will get hair makeovers, which, as we all know, is where the real drama happens.
Tyra comes out, and tells the girls about their new looks. Kelle will get wavy extensions. Julie will get six to eight inches removed. Tyra loves that Yaya keeps her hair natural, which shows the pride that she has as a black woman (and I'm really surprised that they didn't go to Kelle for a reaction shot here, since this seems like an obvious dig), but her braids are going to go. Tyra asks Yaya what her biggest insecurity is, and Yaya says, "Well, my legs are a little stumpy." Kidding! She says her skin, of course, and Tyra reveals that she's set Yaya up with an appointment at a leading dermatologist. And she does say "dermatologist," mind you. Ann will be going blonde. Tyra sees Nicole in I Love Lucy red. Better than Ronald McDonald red, I guess. Toccara will get extensions. "Kristi" will be made edgier with chic long bangs. Jennipher is getting mad hair cut off and going blonde. This news is totally making her brown eyes blue. Tyra says that her hair will be donated to Locks of Love, and Jennipher is glad that it is going to a worthy cause. Cassie is getting a weave. Amanda is getting icy blonde hair to go with her icy blue eyes and her icy crap personality. Amanda does an annoying little dance (which, may I add, she's shown a penchant for in past episodes) and yells "WORK! IT!" Shut up, Amanda. Eva, who looks totally stoned, will be going a bit shorter. Norelle is getting a big-ass cut, and her braces will be coming off today. Yay!
