Michelle goes to the dermatologist, Dr. Ronald Moy, who tells her she has impetigo, which is usually caused by bacteria, is easily treatable, and will probably go away fairly quickly. Michelle is relieved. She asks if it's contagious, and the doctor says that it is contagious through contact. Michelle is worried, particularly about those to whom she's slipped date rape drugs for purposes of rubbing her face all over them in an intimate fashion. Sorry, Tiffany! Mathu makes up Brittany, who says she's a black girl with a nose job. And either Brittany just kind of made a racist remark, or she's admitting that she has a nose job. Take your pick. She gets a big 'fro, which seems to suit her. She's also really comfortable with the child. Jay says that Brittany's was the best shoot to date. He points for emphasis as he says it, so we know he means it.
Michelle returns to the shoot and says to the girls, "It'll clear up. It's a bacterial infection or whatever, and they gave me pills and cream and stuff." Her habit of saying "or whatever" and "and stuff" drives me nuts. In an interview, Tatiana admits that the other girls got a little out of hand with the speculation. Biracial Tatiana has giant hair, and poses with the same kid Brittany had. She says that the kid is heavy, and that kids are not her thing. Christina is East Indian, and Jay tells her that she should be regal, not cold. And I think she has the same kid, too. She says that the challenge was to see how they could handle a "live prop," and a heavy one at that. "Those kids are healthy," she says. Jay tells Michelle that they got a baby doll for her. Rebecca complains that Michelle is going to have it easy with "no weight on her baby." And how many times have I heard that one. She interviews that Michelle can be easy, free, and relaxed while the other girls are tense from the effort of holding a forty-pound child. Oh can it, Stick Figure. Rebecca says that she has no upper-body strength, and I can't see how that's Michelle's fault.
