Nyabel interviews that she felt like walking out because she didn't like the way Peter was talking to her, and says that she was there for Janice, not for Peter. If this was Peter's agency, Nyabel says, she wouldn't even be there. Well, no, because he hates her and thinks that she's a fat piece of hog. Lauren interviews with great emotion that Peter evaluated them without even knowing them or having any idea of what's going on in their lives. She tearfully adds that Peter is a complete asshole, and then can't even continue on with the interview because she's too emotional. I know it's hard being called fat, especially if it's really kind of true, but Lauren needs to toughen the fuck up.
Janice goes to see Lauren and Nyabel. She says that she's not trying to be mean, but they're not ready yet. Lauren cries and says that she's working her ass off (but clearly not literally), and what business does Peter have coming in there and saying mean things to her, and blah blah blah. Janice tactfully says, "You're a little bit heavy right now." She says that Lauren is doing great, but it's not coming off fast enough. Lauren asks what is she supposed to do, starve herself, and Janice says no, and adds that she's given her two weeks and that Lauren still has time. Lauren continues to blubber, and Janice finally lets her true self shine through and says that she's not there to barter, and that she's sorry about their feelings, but this is part of the industry. Janice says that she still believes in them, and the fact that they're still there is testament to that. However, they need to work harder. She tells them to support each other, gives them each a hug, and then gets back the hell to work.
Janice marches back through her agency doors and confronts Peter, telling him that Lauren and Nyabel are sobbing their eyes out. That is half true. Nyabel is just mad, I think. Regardless, Peter could give two shits. Janice interviews that she understands where Peter is coming from, because if she doesn't book models, the agency isn't going to make any revenue. This wake-up call causes her to tell the other models that they have to be on the top of their game and can't come in looking "unkept." She tells one model to wear better fitting jeans and to throw her current pair away. Janice interviews that she needs to get her models into shape, and quick.
Cut to Janice soaking her feet as part of a pedicure. Right in the office. And you know, I have a really great 401(k) plan, but I would totally trade it for a weekly mani and pedi in the office. That is bad-ass. Janice voices over that the one model she's put the most risk and faith in is Teresa Cutie. And who should walk in during the pedicure, but Teresa Cutie herself. Janice has called her in so they can begin working on her "transformation." Her hair is shorter and she looks pretty good for someone who is supposedly eating out of trash bins. We flash back to the flash back of Janice meeting Teresa Cutie for the first time, and get the same exact dialogue about it being a perfect fashion moment. And I know that it's probably a real challenge to get Janice to say something that actually makes sense and uses all real words and that sort of thing, but to have the exact same bit of dialogue cuing the same clip in two of three half-hour episodes seems a bit much. Then again, everyone involved with this show probably just assumes that no one's watching it.
