In an interview, Chris explains that he was just showing CJP affection by touching her back, and that she doesn't have an ounce of fat on her. Keri tries to explain to Chris why CJP got upset. At this point, I was a little bit understanding. I think most people (and most women, especially) have an area of their body that they're overly sensitive about, and don't want people touching or pointing out. It's not right, but it's true. Keri assures CJP that she doesn't have a fat roll and that Chris was just kidding around. Chris agrees that he was joking, and goes to find CJP, who is in her bedroom, bawling. BAWLING! Get thee to a therapist. Because that's fucked up. As she's sobbing, you can totally see her rib cage, in case you were wondering whether or not she actually is fat. She's not. She's tiny. She's bony. She's got problems.
After the commercial, Chris continues to look for CJP. Keri thinks that CJP is putting on an act to make Chris feel bad, or as a joke. Kyle walks in and says that CJP isn't acting. Chris finds CJP being comforted by Tonya and still sobbing. Keri asks CJP if she's okay, and she sobs, "Noooooo." Keri hugs her. Chris stands by uncertainly. The boom mike guy runs out of the shot. In an interview, Tonya says that she can relate to Tonya because she's been there, and "even when you gain two pounds, you're like, mortified." Because women without eating disorders just love to gain weight. I think that Tonya has been a little quick to slap CJP with the eating-disorder label, but then again, we've never seen CJP eat, so I don't know. The only thing that seemed vaguely disordered to me was her drooling over Kyle's cinnamon roll and then having an orgasm after allowing herself one bite. I do think that CJP has huge body-image problems, but there's a fine line between an actual eating disorder and the body issues that almost all women (unfortunately) have. Tonya tries to explain that it was just a joke. CJP says that she's gained seven pounds since she's been in Chicago, and that she knows she's overreacting, but that it doesn't make her feel any better. In an interview, Tonya says that she feels for CJP. I love how Tonya can only feel empathy for someone when she can relate it to herself. She can't possibly feel for Chris, for having struggled with coming out of the closet. Chris asks CJP what's wrong. CJP says that she weighed herself today, and that she knows it's stupid, but gaining weight is depressing. In an interview, Kyle says that he doesn't think that CJP is as happy as she seems, and that this event proves it. Chris tries to apologize and tells CJP that she's beautiful. In an interview, CJP says that she feels a little crazy and didn't think it would affect her like that. Again, get help.
