Heidi slathers on eight more layers of makeup. Spencer yells that it totally wasn't Heidi's fault that no one told her that Elodie quit. Except maybe if anyone in the office liked Heidi AT ALL, they would have clued her into the whole thing. Spencer and Heidi continue to bitch about how nothing is Heidi's fault, and she is awesome, and everyone else sucks. Spencer decides that it means they can't depend on anybody. Heidi puts on two more tons of blush, prepping for yet another "candid" photo shoot, probably.
JB and Audrina shoot pool in a bar. JB says he can't handle a lot of people, and he'd rather hang out and play pool. Audrina explains what she and Lauren discussed the other day. Audrina totally pretends like she said anything in that whole conversation, when really, she just sat there with her mouth open, because she's not that bright. JB wants things to be "happy and blissful and mellow." Oh, go smoke a doob. Audrina wants to gossip about Lauren and Brody, but JB seriously could not care less.
Lauren meets Brody for dinner. They discuss how much fun they had in Vegas, and then toast to being friends. Lauren confesses what Jen told her. Brody says that Heidi has lost her mind. Lauren wants to know why Brody didn't take her side at the time of the rumors, and Brody says he wanted to stay out of it, because he was still friends with Spencer at that point. Lauren wants Brody to look at her and admit that Spencer and Heidi started the rumors. Brody mans up and says, "Lauren, I know one hundred percent fact that they did it." Do you think he's lying? I don't think he's lying. I think Brody's a coward and kind of a douche, but I don't think he's malicious.
Teen Vogue Work Closet. Whitney is still folding shit, although at least Lauren is helping this time. Lauren explains what Brody said, and adds that Brody is very loyal, and even after a relationship ends, Brody has always refused to badmouth the person, so that's why Brody wouldn't confirm it before now. Whitney wonders if Heidi was involved in the rumors. Lauren thinks that Heidi may have known and went along with it, even if she wasn't actively involved. ["I was interested in the fact that Brody clearly said 'they did it,' but what Lauren reported to Whitney was that Brody said 'he did it.' I think even now, part of Lauren really wants to believe Heidi wasn't involved, even though she hates Heidi." -- Miss Alli] Seriously. Here's what happened. Spencer called up some of his tabloid contacts/gossip bloggers and told them there was a sex tape, and gave some details to make it sound like he had seen it. And then they all ran with it, because God knows Perez Hilton doesn't have a fact checker. And then he and Heidi probably pulled up the web sites and laughed and laughed. The end. It's not like there was a grand conspiracy -- it was just a shitty, petty thing to do. Anyway, Whitney and Lauren agree that they need to tell Jen to stop spreading rumors about Brody.
