Backbone. Meat Loaf heads off to photograph the butler, which Lil Jon doesn't like, because Meat Loaf has a different idea for the concept. Rich says that Meat Loaf can't do what Lil Jon's doing (putting it all together) or what Rich is doing (writing the words), so he has to be where he is. Meat Loaf directs his model by telling him he's the best of the best, and no one's better than him. Meat Loaf says he finally realizes all he's learned in his years acting and performing now that he's directing a photo shoot. So, a forty-year career has all led up to this one reality-show photo shoot.
ASAP. La Toya and Nene are having a heart to heart in the van. Nene asks if La Toya's going to call her when she comes to Atlanta. La Toya replies that when she comes to Atlanta, she's staying at Nene's. La Toya interviews that she holds no animosity because it's toxic, and she thinks Nene's letting things go too. It's actually sort of cute. Are they the cutest couple or what? Star interviews that she told Nene to get back in an hour and a half when they left, "but I must have been smoking some of those funny-smelling cigarettes," because you know, this is Manhattan and there's crazy traffic. Star says they were delayed in starting the photo shoots because Nene was in charge of the photo shoot with Hope in the bathtub. When they finally get back, Star tells Nene she has five minutes to get started. Nene interviews, "Bitch, you're setting me up." Then Nene tells everyone to shut up and let her work. Star comes in and directs her, and Nene tells her to go away. Star comes back in and asks if they're still doing this shoot. Nene yells at her that they've barely started and she wants it to look right. Nene says no one will snap at Star but her. Then she interviews that if you give her a job, let her do the job because that's how she rolls. La Toya walks out of another room then and sing-songs, "'Cause that's how she rolls." They both giggle. See? Cute.
Backbone. Rich says they're using pictures of the Trump buildings along with their original photography. They start to look through the butler photos, and they are all exactly the same: The guy stands there, stern-faced, staring straight ahead. Rich wonders why take all the photos if they're all the same, and the guy looks like an undertaker. Lil Jon says it's not how he envisioned it. Rich says this was the most crucial photo, and it was supposed to be a butler looking friendly and inviting. Lil Jon suggests chopping his head off, with the arm and the towel. Rich tells Meat Loaf they needed him smiling, and Meat Loaf takes the blame for that, because he wanted the guy's attitude to be that he's the best, not to smile. Meat Loaf interviews that if he'd known that's where they wanted to go, he'd have done it, and he totally screwed up.
