What The Divas Are Doing Now
Orundun tells us that education was the family's priority, and that they were all happy when Yaya graduated from Brown. We see some cute pictures of Yaya as a little kid. DO NOT LET THEM SWAY YOUR OPINION OF HER! She is still evil. She says that she teaches Spanish at the school, and with a few of the kids whose native language is Spanish, she teaches French. She irritates me in much the same way that Gwyneth Paltrow irritates me. Orundun says that the kids all watch the show, and have a discussion about Yaya every Thursday. Student Desmond Elliot says that the show made Yaya look like a China person when she went to China. Yaya gasps and says, "Where did I go?" The kid corrects himself and says Japan, and Yaya says, "Boy, you better know your geography." Cute, right? BUT DO NOT LET THIS SWAY YOUR OPINION OF HER! She is still evil. And then, my favorite person on this whole special, adorable little Anna Link, who is missing her two front teeth, says, "Even though she didn't win, she could have won, and she got really close to winning. And I really liked about that." More Anna Link! She's the greatest. See, the show is trying to make us forget about how crappy Yaya was (I'm going to call this LIES #17-20), and hoping that the cute little kids will reflect well on her. And I don't know why that is, but I have a rallying cry for the Soldiers of Fucking Yaya: REMEMBER THE UMEBOSHI!
Yaya blathers on about the tea ceremony, and then says she's always keeping in mind the things that keep her grounded, like being close to home. We meet her dad, Awolowo Johnson, who is considerably less crazy-looking than his spouse. He talks about how he and his wife were always a captive audience for the fashion shows, dances, etc. that Yaya and her siblings would put on. More cute footage of young Yaya. LOOK AWAY! LOOK AWAY! REMEMBER THE UMEBOSHI! We see Yaya dancing, and she says that she wants to do so many things in her life that she doesn't know where to start, but that she's in a great place right now and will embrace it and use it to the fullest. She is very excited about modeling. The show doesn't tell us that she also signed a contract with Ford models. What she needs to do is to walk into something pointy.
