Versace shoot. Marissa tries to spread sour grapes, but Raina says that Sonja is kicking ass in the party dress. Lots of shots in a row try to make us believe this as well, but... meh. On a break, Sonja is barraged by one whole paparazzo, who asks her about detox and whatnot. Cole gets all macho man up in his face, and he backs off pretty easily. God, the stakes are so high on this show! She thanks him for having her back, and Raina says he did a nice thing just then. Cole tells Raina that he used to know Sonja way back in the day. He says this latest gig is the best thing that could have happened to her, giving Raina reason to smug it up all over town.
Her phone rings. It's Chris, seeking advice for his book-building photo shoot. She talks him through fashion, shaving, etc., and tells him she'll meet him after the last set-up on the Versace shoot.
Uptown, Vivienne greets Isaac and his six-pack with a freshly blended blueberry smoothie. She asks him why he needs $3,000. He says it's for Egan. She has very little pity, and he says she probably doesn't remember what it's like to be on the bottom rung. She says that she does, which is why she is so serious about her own work. He counters by recalling how easily things used to be for him. Now, he feels like nothing comes easy, and he's working his ass off for nothing. She asks him what does come easy. He says his music does, but that it doesn't matter because he doesn't have anyone to listen to it. She tells him to bring a CD over to listen to before the benefit. She also gives him the three grand.
But she's too late. Claudia has already posted Egan's bail. She tells him to apologize for what he does. He promises to make it up to her, but she tells him she's dropping him. She claims it's a shame because he was actually quite good.
Back at the shoot, Marissa gives Sonja a hard time for... well... eating... at all. She gives her crap, too, because she thinks Sonja slept with Franco to get the job. I believe the words "sneaky tart" are used. Yes! She tells Sonja she's not afraid to play dirty and alludes to some shady things she's done to get where she is today. Sonja, to her credit, gives it just as good as she gets it. She demeans Marissa, saying she slept her way to the middle, and tells her to consider herself lucky for making it this far.
