Chris opens the floor to questions from the audience. Foreshadowing and Irony's agent stands up to ask the women if any of them gained any weight from Heather's cooking. Everybody laughs. Frances jokes that Heather's cooking and the trick with the hairspray -- where she convinced the women to spray their bodies in order to get tans, but they got sunburned instead -- was part of her strategy. Everybody laughs. Except Heather, who suddenly bursts into tears. The hell? Okay, I'm having a sudden bout of compassion. Don't worry, it won't last long. I think what's actually happening here is that Heather was actually more emotionally affected by watching Aaron's comments about her again than she let on, and she finally lost it when Frances made that harmless joke. I mean, I think Heather's crazy, but she's not that crazy. Still, get a grip, crazy lady! Okay, the compassion's gone. Everybody gets uncomfortable when they realize Heather's crying. Angela tries to calm Heather down. Chris has this nasty little smirk on his face when he asks Heather why she's crying. Heather insists that what Frances says was "just hurtful." Everyone looks confused, because, of course, Heather was making the same damned jokes to begin with. And, you know, if you're going to treat all these women as competition for some strange guy that you want to win like a trophy, you can suck it up for a little trash talk. Heather insists that she was just cooking to be the "mother hen," and that se wasn't actually trying to make anybody fat. Frances insists that she was kidding. Chris points out that Frances made the same joke Heather did. Heather goes on this long rant about how she worked so hard to make macaroni and cheese for everybody all the time, and it was her "hardest recipe." I'd go, "Huh?" except I know that Alton Brown spent an entire episode of Good Eats explaining how to make good mac and cheese, so Heather must have been doing it the long way. I seem to have struck a Food Network theme in this week's recap. Frances apologizes and assures Heather that she didn't mean her comments seriously as Angela gives Heather a comforting hug. Chris sends us to commercials, still smirking that at least somebody cried during the episode. Barbara Walters is quaking in her boots, I'm sure.
