JLD in the VIP
Episode 4: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor counts down this week's top three moments.
No. 3 The Sweet Sound of "Shut Up"
I think everyone watching Zoila in recovery was biting their nails in worry. Even though we know she made it out fine (and wrinkle free), it was still somewhat traumatic. Those terrible noises she was making while the nurse kept telling her to breathe were frankly horrifying. But all of us, including the JLD team, were able to breathe a much needed sigh of relief once Zoila whispered, "Shut up," to Jeff after he made a snarky comment. Sass is a sure sign of a speedy recovery, so she'll be back to keeping Jeff in line and watching her telenovelas in no time.
No. 2 Jenni Pulos, Pole Dancer
Jeff found Jenni's pole dancing to be, well...unsexy. Especially when compared to Sarah and her friends. And while it may not have been super sexy, it was pretty hilarious. I would have given her all my dollar bills for that chicken-dance like routine. Or at the very least some Sacajawea coins.
But perhaps the reason Jenni wasn't "turning it out" (besides the fact that Jeff was there, because come on, what hasn't he seen at this point) was because that was actually her notorious alter ego, Deb, performing! I could see Deb's dance going in that direction, less of a pole dance and more of a dance around a pole.
No. 1 Welcome The VIP Lounge
Like many members of the JLD staff, I too had never been in a strip club VIP area before (or a strip club for that matter), so I really learned a lot. I kind of have to go with Gage on this one and say I'm not sure where the enjoyment comes in, but more power to everyone else who fully enjoyed the experience (Sarah and Chaz). That one dancer was shakin' her thang, and it looked like you could bounce a quarter (or just Trace's head) off it.
A fun game I played while watching the scene was trying to decide who was more uncomfortable, Gage or Trace. In the end I went with Gage, because at least Trace engaged with the dancers (even if he was semi-forced to by Chaz). All in all it looked like Sarah thoroughly enjoyed herself, so mission accomplished.
Next week a client flat out tells Jenni that she doesn't like her? What?! How can you dislike Jenni?
