Then, a sad moment for Muna, and a terrible decision. She watches herself "acting" in the soap opera, and doing a good job, but her face falls and she asks the question: "Do you understand what I'm...saying?" Even to Muna, she sounds nuts. Kristine of course is also horrified by the footage, and interviews about Muna's terrible rambling. Because there are actually three problems here: one is the accent, which is not that difficult at all when she's at rest but amps itself up considerably depending on her mood; two is the fact that, like Heidi, she's talking a mile a minute like an insane person; and three is that the mics themselves, due to the director/producer not knowing the tech, aren't working terribly well. Add those to the actual complicated business of acting for the camera, and really it's just that she's bad at this, with a couple of other things going on simultaneously. Kristine gnaws on ice cubes and frustration like a beaver with a herpie. Heidi interviews smugly that perhaps it was "not wise" to leave, as PM, during the first moments of filming. And I have to say, she's not wrong: at least make sure that everything's not ass-up blitzed-out awful before you high-tail it to the lipstick store. And yeah, I know it's Angela's first time there, and that's exciting, but trust me: it can wait. Angela, sweetly, is like, "Muna, you talk crazy!"; Muna's all, "Seriously!" Angela tells us that Muna was clearly flustered in front of the camera, and her speeches weren't "clear and concise" -- when she gets nervous she talks fast, and that can make it hard to understand. Muna watches the video, feeling awful; Angela eventually decides they should cut all the parts where Muna and Heidi were running around like insane babblers. Heidi and Kristine finally agree. Heidi interviews about the difficulty in editing around the crazy talk while still trying to preserve the storyline and keep the product placement going. Needless to say, this is impossible, but I guess they at least try. Muna and Heidi stare into space, scared.
