Also upset is Laura, who is getting a little shortchanged in terms of how many pictures anyone is actually taking of her while this bitchery is occurring. As Kelly and Jez hammer it out with some poor producer who is right now thinking that a free trip to Jamaica was not worth it, Laura is taken off set. Kelly tells us that Jez was threatened because she "made a suggestion" that threw him off his day. Nine West is her client, and she is their consultant, and she was right, and her shot was better. Well, at least according to Kelly. Kelly and Jez bitch to the producer for a while, and as she storms off Jez says he doesn't have this kind of drama at his shoots. Meanwhile, Laura notes that this whole thing is unfair to her, who only got five minutes to get a good shot. She cries and cries as we head to commercials.
When we return, Johnny revisits the drama and tells us that Jez was trying to be creative and get good shots, but Kelly is the boss and so Jez has to do what she says. I thought she was just the talent? Laura cries to Johnny about how frustrated she is, and how mentally fraught she can become when she's not confident about a shoot, and he assures her that she did the best she could under the dramatic circumstances. Leila is up next, and after Kelly tells the hair people what to do with her ponytail, she continues her running commentary of direction. One thing that Johnny and Kelly agree on is that Leila needs to work on connecting with the product. No pigeon toes when selling Nine West shoes! Leila tells us that she worked hard to come back and is the epitome of America's Next Top Model because she's so new and different. "New." "Different."
Finally there's Kiara. She tells us that she's always been a tomboy tough chick, and a lot of people didn't think she had what it takes to become America's Next Top Model. So now she's going to be able to rub her finalist status in all those bitches' faces. On set, Kiara is a bit too serious and staid for Kelly, who says that this isn't a comeback shot for Beverly Johnson. She wants something more youthful and energetic, and also for Kiara to open her eyes. Johnny notes that, with last week's challenge win and best photo, Kiara should be on top of her game. Instead, she is dead-eyed. Kelly tells Kiara to save her sadness for when she's back in her room. Johnny then interviews that it was great that Kelly was on set since she was representing the client, but people get crazy. And that's silly because this is fashion, and what's there to be crazy about? And...you guys, I think he just called Kelly crazy.
