It's morning at Belfort. Melissa's hair is suddenly much longer than it was the day before, leading me to believe that this is not the day after their first show at all. Melissa tells Kelley (who is clad only in a towel) that "it's really embarrassing." In an interview, Melissa says that she found out by talking to "random people in the community" that people who saw the show thought that they were "seven brats talking about things they know nothing about" since they have "been in New Orleans for two seconds." Kelley says that the first show is gone, but Melissa says it will live on in reruns, and that people have been watching it. Kelley just laughs. Melissa says she's going to send out a public-service announcement that says that they were just kidding with that first show, and that it was a joke. Kelley says that would be great. That was such a weird scene. Why did they include it here? Were they trying to preclude all of us saying all the criticisms that Melissa just said? I hope the relevance is revealed later on, because I don't get it.
Next week, Julie tells David that television is her "only exposure to the colored race." Julie asks Melissa if that was a bad thing to say, and Melissa says it was horrible. Jamie says that he thinks Melissa is "overly sensitive on the race issue." Whatever, Shaka Zulu. Melissa says that it's not her job to change people that are ignorant. Julie yells, "One person makes a difference!" Melissa says that ignorance is here to stay.
Over the credits, we get to see David's cheesy "bad rap video" again. I think the editors are enjoying this as much as we are. The worst part is, David is probably sitting home watching it and thinking, "Aw, yeah! I am smooth! That is tight!"
