Next, Jillian invites Tim to visit her family on Long Island. She interviews that the greatest designers come from Long Island: "Michael Kors, Donna Karan, and Jillian Lewis." She forgot Ralph Lifshitz from the Bronx! Jillian's family seems very excited to meet Tim. We also meet Lewaa, Jillian's boyfriend. I'm sure he's a nice guy, but no. That is not the man for Jillian.
At the dinner table, Tim asks Jillian's mother if she had any apprehensions about Jillian pursuing fashion. She says that, before she was married, she saw a clairvoyant who told her that one of her three children would be famous. Jillian tells Tim that she was raised with that idea. I wonder if Jillian's mom told all of her daughters that. Jillian interviews that her mother raised her to do something amazing in this life and she has always been chasing that accomplishment. There's the best picture of Jillian at 5 or something wearing a denim skirt (I think maybe the same one she wore on the show) and a straw hat and posing stone-faced with her leg up on a jungle gym and her fist holding up her chin. Her golden retriever is beside her. Awesomest picture ever. I'm taking my own version RIGHT NOW. Watch out Ryan McGinley, it's my amazing accomplishment. Jillian says that she wouldn't have done what she has done without her mother pushing her. Jillian says that she wants the world to know her and to seek out her designs. She knows that everyone says that they are going to be the next big thing, but she will be. Wow. She's kind of convincing.
Tim visits Rami next in Los Angeles. He knocks on Rami's door and is greeted with a big smile and hug by Rami. He introduces Tim to two of his best friends, Jeff (no relation) and Jen (maybe related-- must check). Rami interviews that it's weird to see Tim in this context. Tim asks Rami how his family likes the show, and Rami says that they are very proud of him and he is very lucky to have them in his life. He reminds us that he grew up in Jerusalem. His mother was Miss Jordan and passed away when he was five. Then, we see the cutest picture of little mop-topped Rami. He says that it was very tough losing his mother at such a young age, but his father remarried and he thinks his stepmother is the greatest. He tells a story about hiding his love of fashion from his family because of the sociological ramifications, but his brother showed their parents Rami's sketches when he was 12. He thought he would get a condemning response, but instead they were amazed by his talent. He says that it slowly became clear to him that he would become a designer. We see a couple of cute pix of Rami as a grown up. He's a really good-looking guy.
