Tyra Mail! Lions roar. Feel in balance? Get ready to soar, tomorrow at 7:00 AM. Michelle says that she's excited because she's been waiting to "get up in the air and do something." And I don't think I want to know what that something is. The girls arrive at their shoot, and Tyra, who is wearing a plus-sized "Sagittarius" shirt, tells them that they are going to be the signs of the zodiac. They clap and squeal. Jay tells them that Mike Li, Hollywood stunt coordinator, is going to harness them and hoist them into the air. Their photographer is Tracy Bayne, who looks like a short-haired Michelle. Tyra tells them that they will also be shooting a calendar. Jay points out the brand-name underwear (found in any Macy's) that they will be sporting for the Warnaco-sponsored calendar.
Mathu the makeup artist jokes with Naima that she is going to look like a balloon-animal when he's finished with her. Brandy questions the person who will be doing her makeup. Tiffany, who will be Cancer, jokes that she'll be a "scramp." Which I guess is a crab. She wonders how she can be a sexy crab. Lluvy is Pisces the fish, and interviews that she thought they were going to give her even bigger fish lips than she already has. Lluvy is really cute in her interviews.
Naima -- who has horns on her head as Capricorn the Goat -- is first. She has some trouble and seems a little dead. Jay says that he thought ballerina Naima would have more grace and movement, but that she's lacking her usual pow. Kahlen is Aries the Ram and looks like a prettier Kelly Preston. She was nervous at first, but eventually found her center. Backstage, Keenyah asks Brandy why they're taking so long to do her hair. She says pissily, "I say he just don't know what to do." She interviews that she was the first one done with makeup, and that the man didn't want to admit that he didn't know what to do with her super-short hair. I'm sorry, but if she can't see that these are all mini-tests on her attitude, I don't know what to say. Noelle is Leo the Lion. She looks very "Disney Stars on Ice." Jay says that she didn't look like a proud lion, and that he, as a Leo, is pissed. Keenyah as Taurus the Bull gives a range of expressions. Brittany as Sagittarius the Archer is thinking, "No sex-kitten face." Jay tells her to think in terms of positive rather than negative. This is seriously the extent of his direction. Brittany does well, and graciously thanks the photographer. Tiffany, as Cancer, thinks that she will have a good shoot despite the fact that she's "a damn crab." She has three quarters of her face covered by red sequins, and is forced to sport giant lobster claws on her hands. That is just ridiculous. Jay says that Tiffany has grown in leaps and bounds from her first shoot, and that she commanded the set. Way to work those claws, girl!
