Hateful Jim shouts in a confessional -- man, if he's not trying PAINFULLY hard to lose his voice, he's trying even harder to make us lose our hearing -- that Primarius has awesome celebrities. To wit, they have: Paul Sorvino and daughter (not Mira, Amanda), Susan Lucci (who oh-so-recently appeared on Martha to help her pot a plant that was bigger than the soap opera star's entire, shrunken body), John Lithgow (LOVE!) and Joanna Gleason, and Todd Oldham (designer, designer, designer).
Matchstick. Marcela is project manager, and I have this feeling that this isn't going to go well. Marcela, Amanda, and Dawna join up to talk to half of their assigned celebrities. They will be talking to Chad Pennington (WHO?), Fraaaaaaan Drescher, Bruce Vilanch and Jordan Ballard (HUH?), and Merv Griffin. The trio first goes to talk to Fraaaaaaan, where Amanda lets loose with how inspiring Fraaaaaaan's Cancer Schmancer book was when she had cancer. Of the eye. And it was a melanoma. And she can't see out of that eye. But it looks normal. And Fraaaaaaan's all nasal about the whole thing. And that's a lot to take in. So I'm moving on. Amanda and Dawna leap right in with their ideas while Marcela noticeably says very little. Their ideas are to get the winning bid person a guest spot on Fraaaaaaan's new show and/or a tour of the set. Fraaaaaaan's very amenable to both. This scene was all about Marcela seeming to do nothing and then she herself noting that Dawna and Amanda just took over the meeting.
