A-holette defends herself, weakly, claiming that she and her spindly legs are not actually straddling the border between normality and anorexia because her skin-and-bones-ness isn't affecting her health. Mmmm-hmmmm. Honey, your projectile cheek bones beg to differ. Whitney enables, as usual, saying that everything's fine as long as A-holette's okay with herself -- which she so obviously isn't. Erin just kind of stares at this shit show with wide eyes. Eventually A-holette calls Kelly ugly and does an impression of her, which gets them all laughing. Because they're vapid.
The next day, Dan shows Erin the ropes at One Management. The most important rule is to pretend you know who you're talking to and treat them like they're important and not just idiot stick figures. Yep, that's the fashion and entertainment world in a nutshell. Scott joins the conversation to give Erin the intro talk that Kelly never bothered to give Whitney or Lauren. He seems like a good guy, though I have a strange hunch that there's probably a rage problem under there. Either way, he concludes the conversation by inviting her to a company party that night. He leaves, and Erin does what you do at work if you're on an MTV reality show -- talk about her personal life. Dan is pretty excited to hear about the new/old guy. She drolls, "I'm not trying to put a ring on my finger."
That night at Scott's party, for some reason EVERYONE Whitney has every met in New York is there (minus trucker hat-wearer Alex, though that would have been pretty kick-ass). How convenient. Scott raises a toast, and everyone seems jovial. But it wouldn't be The City without some unnecessary tension, so Kelly shows up. A-holette snarks that her best friend has arrived. Kelly immediately apologizes to A-holette for calling her a stick insect, but she makes it clear that she considers A-holette weak by claiming she devastated her. Instead of just moving on like a grown-up girl, A-holette leans over to her dickwad boyfriend, who is not known for his maturity or self-control, and gets all territorial. Kelly just makes things worse when she starts asking about Whitney and even suggests that Whitney should be a model with One. Dagger eyes from the A-holes. P.S. Why is Jay there? He looks exceptionally uncomfortable... and maybe a little confused.
