Credits. In my next life, I want to be introduced everywhere I go by a personalized stock ticker. If I could walk into a room and announce that I am already down 2 3/8 for the day, maybe people would know when to leave me alone.
Aspiring Corporate Weasel Death Watch, S4. For some reason, Ereka is bumming around the apartment in a white sweater, red pants, and a brown corduroy newsboy cap. What could have possessed her, honestly? Will she be shooting a video later? Did she lose her mind at the Street Cred Closeout Sale? Katrina asks Troy whom he thinks will be fired, as between Jessie "Putting the 'Con' in" Conners and Heidi "You Can't Delude Others Unless You First Truly Delude Yourself" Bressler. Kwame and Troy aren't so sure it'll be either -- things weren't looking so sunny for the inimitable Assorama, or so it appeared at the time Troy and Kwame fled the Boardroom of Horrors, leaving their distinctive Troy-shaped and Kwame-shaped holes in the wall.
Just then, Heidi and Assorama return from the Boardroom. There are hugs for Heidi. There are no hugs for Assorama. I'm telling you, it's all relative. Both women report that the conversation was "heated." "It got hot," Assorama smirks, "but I'm here." Heidi reports rather spittingly that it became "really ugly" in the Boardroom. And she's not talking about her eyebrows. (Thank you; I'm here all week. No, really. Did you hear I have three shows all of a sudden? I am saying that I am here all week.) Heidi furiously babbles that Assorama called her "unclassy and unprofessional," and she appears to be really peeved that Assorama had never told her that she felt that way. As if "unclassy and unprofessional" would have been all right with her, if only Assorama had said it more often. Assorama basically rolls her eyes, to which I'm not totally unsympathetic, because Heidi -- as usual -- needs to shut up. But I also agree with Heidi when Assorama gets all smug about it and Heidi points out that Trump called Assorama's behavior "repulsive." It's a fair point, after all. "Whatever, I'm still here," Assorama says. Yeah, it's hard to spin "repulsive" as a compliment, although if anyone could do it, she'd be the one to try. Heidi interviews that Assorama's "no class" comment only reflected badly on Assorama herself. (It's awesome that in this interview in which she objects so strenuously to being called out for lacking class, you can see what appears to be her black bra sticking out of the ultra-plunging neckline of her light blue sweater.) Honestly, I think the whole exchange reflected miserably on everyone who participated in it, but we'll see over time whether Trump agrees with me. I hope he does, because I love to be validated by the sickeningly wealthy.
