Over at Magna, Kendra is on the Space Communicator with Tana, who's explaining that she and Craig intend to ask Eve if the winner can appear in a scene on the Eve show. And something about "crunk," I'm sure. Kendra asks them to throw in some more stuff, but basically supports them. She interviews that Tana and Craig were being careful to check back with the team before making decisions about what to pitch. We then watch the meeting with Eve, in which she does indeed agree to the combination of an appearance on the show and a lunch. The Jadakiss meeting goes similarly well. Tana and Chris run a deal where she kind of teases about whether they should ask for what they're really wanting to ask for or whatever, and Tana finally asks if the winner could "travel around the world with you." "That's cool," he says. So I don't know what exactly that entails, but it sounds pretty good. Everyone claps. Yay!
The Lil Kim meeting is even better. Tana opens with a pitch to let someone "go on the road with" Lil Kim, who initially blanches slightly. Tana describes in an interview how she likes to start out small with a sale, and then add and add until she reaches this climactic point where...well, let's just say cigarettes are involved. She talks about her background with Mary Kay, which I've been kind of trying not to think about, actually. Ultimately, Tana and Craig ask for, and get, a week with Kim. Tana points out that she ought to be able to do pretty well at convincing people to give some time, considering that she can "sell makeup to men." Heh. I do wish she weren't wearing the pink shirt. Because that makes it all seem just a little bit too Mary Kay. Tana tells Craig, "Baby, we are nailing this to the wall."
Their meeting with Moby is actually my favorite, since he looks so aghast the entire time. He looks like this is the most uncomfortable thing that has ever happened to him in his whole life, including birth and whatever surgeries he may have endured. Tana makes an ill-advised and not-that-funny interview remark about how the difference between Lil Jon and Moby was like the difference between "black and white," like...hilarious. Don't get me wrong -- I'm not offended, except in the sense that obvious, dorky jokes vaguely offend me. I just think it's a dumb line. Tana asks him if he's okay with the winner getting a week on tour (damn!), and Moby, apparently not all that nervous after all, says that sounds fine. I admire his dedication to the charity, but...a week? With a fan of the type who would spend large amounts of money to spend a week with you? (Shudder.) He also says the person can come onstage, get the full package, whatever. "Right now I have the shivers!" Tana interviews. I'm sure Moby does, too.
