Backbone war room. NeNe's disappeared without telling anyone where she went. They forget about her, though, and start calling in their big guns. La Toya calls Larry King. Lil Jon calls someone and is all, "Money, dollar bills, go, go, go." Then he interviews that the key to success in a fundraising task is raising the most damn money. So far, he has $7,500. Rich says he tapped out most of his big donors on the art show. The one ace left in his hole, he says, is Jimmy Fallon. So he calls him and Jimmy's in. He's happy to do a bit or a song with Rich or something for the comedy show. They are worried that NeNe's not around to call for donors, though, so Rich sings a "NeNe" song to try to conjure her up. "NeNe, NeNe, where the hell'd you go? Guess you don't want to work today with your new team Backbone."
ASAP. They're starting to make calls for money, too. Star Jones knows Tracy Morgan, though, and is going to call him and ask him to help out with their comedy show. Isn't it a coincidence that the comedy people who happen to be willing friends to the folks on this NBC reality show are comedians with NBC contracts? Hmmm. Marlee's also willing to do her own comedy bit, which she calls "Deaf Comedy." Meat Loaf starts making calls trying to get money, which he says is difficult for him because he's not used to asking people for things. It's making him crazy. Jim Cramer comes in then, immediately going all Mad Money on them. Star gets her call back from someone named Kenny, who says they can come over and film Tracy Morgan for a couple minutes. Jim Cramer interviews that ASAP was thinking too small by getting Tracy on a video instead of getting him live and in person. He says he certainly wouldn't have been satisfied with just a video.
Rich tells La Toya he may have a donor who will give $50,000. Lil Jon thinks that's good, but La Toya wants to get a $100,000 donation. She says it's important for her to win now that she's on a new team, because she wants to prove herself. She's counting on someone to give her a big donation. She gets a rejection from her biggest donor, who can't fly out because he's doing a seminar. Ivanka shows up and asks if there's a number they're trying to hit, and La Toya says she wants to get close to what Rich's team raised last time. They point out NeNe's nowhere to be seen, and Ivanka's pretty disappointed. She does think Backbone's working pretty harmoniously without her, however. Lil Jon: "NeNe, NeNe, wherefore art thou, NeNe?" I have to assume he knows what that means and is actually asking why NeNe is NeNe. Because it's a damn good question, really.
