Isaac says that the inspiration for the challenge was Harper's Bazaarphoto story where they made-under the New York housewives. The ladies don't seem insulted to hear that they need to be made-under. Emerald gets to choose the Housewives that they want to work with, since they won the last challenge. Cesar interviews that he watches both shows and finds the New Jersey ladies to be a little too feisty, so they choose the Orange County gals. Calvin says that the New Jersey girls don't need to dress down, but rather to class up. Astute.
Time for the challenge starts now. The designers start consulting by going to the Housewife on their team that they want to work with. Jeffrey says they all ran to women that they wanted. He goes for Lynne. After talking, she seems to think he's amazing and that she got the best designer. Cindy gets Lauri and asks her how much cleavage she can show. Lauri says a lot and knows right then that Cindy doesn't watch her show. Cesar works with Ashley. Golnessa works with Gretchen, who brought sketches. Hmm. Golnessa says that isn't a good sign. Gretchen is very vocal during the consultation and adds that she wants bling. She knows that Golnessa is probably worried.
Over at the House of Nami, Eduardo works with Dina. They have a bit of a communication problem due to Eduardo's accent and Dina's lack of actually listening. Dominique gets Jacqueline who explains that she's modest. David gets Caroline and he tells her that she is built like his mother, but with bigger bosoms. She wants Calvin, which makes me think she's crazy since David is the cutest thing since lunchboxes. Calvin is working with Teresa, which is kind of a match made in heaven. He agrees because she's all boobs and butt -- his kind of girl. She loves him and says that their personalities mesh. She wants the "winner dress."
Back at the workroom, they have 30 minutes to design. Calvin presents a swatch that they all like. He's seriously bossy and Dominique is still sad, which makes David feels they aren't a team. David presents his design, which has an open back. Calvin says that a woman Caroline's age shouldn't show her back. David says her shoulders were really nice, but he says it would be very, very slutty. Absolutely hell to the no. Calvin is an asshole. Then, Calvin says something about David being retarded. Maybe he doesn't realize that the words he says are as offensive as they are? It's just so boldly mean that I wonder if something different is happening in his head.
