Dionne interviews that she wants to see Natasha go home, because she's just over her. She tells the other girls that something is going on with Natasha, but she doesn't know what it is. Dionne is convinced that she has some lies floating around somewhere. Jaslene is very curious as to how she lives her life at home with her husband. Renee interviews that Natasha doesn't have a wedding ring, and she's never seen a photo of her husband or her daughter. She says it's all very confusing. Well, maybe her husband has leprosy. Or is the Phantom of the Opera. You just don't know. Dionne says that Natasha never talks about her family, for real, and that they don't know anything about her life or her husband. She interviews in a scandalized tone that she doesn't even know his name. Renee and Jaslene agree that Natasha's story has changed a million times, and Renee adds, "If you're gonna lie, at least be good at it." Spoken like a true pro. I will give them that Natasha's situation seems kind of sketchy, but maybe the problem lies with the fact that no one has ever bothered to talk to her or asked her any questions. If there were something really super-sketchy going on, I can't believe that Tyra and the other producers wouldn't have outed it by now. Unless Natasha is the winner, in which case there would be no such outing, and the other girls would be made to look like super catty bitches. Oh, huh.
Natasha interviews that throughout the whole competition she has been talked about, and she's in the middle of every conversation. She says that the other girls are nice to her face, because they don't want to let on to her that they're jealous. She doesn't let it touch her, because it would distract her from the competition to let the other girls get in her head. I have to say, Natasha is a tough Russian tea cookie. The other girls return home, and find Tyra Mail awaiting. "Sorry girls, you're history. Love, Tyra." In another week, they actually will be history! Top Model history. And, well, just history.
The next morning, as Jaslene irons her tank top (??????) Natasha blows her nose. She tells us, "Today, I woke up and I was having the fever, I have the stuffed nose and the sore throat to the point where it's really, really hard for me to swallow." Natasha feels a lot of pressure, because the competition is getting harder and there are not many girls left. She says, "I'm really scared that I'm not going to be a-rocking in this photo shoot today." And if Natasha's not a-rocking, well, the girls will still keep knocking her. She cries and looks generally miserable as we head to commercials.
