The whole episode starts with Alex coming over to Vawn's to chat. This, to me, is very interesting. My feelings for Africa have subsided since she chose Vawn over me, but it is fun to sit back and watch the situation play out. What is Alex's angle? She is obviously trying to wiggle herself in the situation, but if Vawn is going to let her insert herself, then I don't blame her.
Later Vawn at least tells Africa that Alex came over. This goes back to his honesty philosophy. It is somewhat up to the girl in the situation to realize what’s going on, and I don’t know if Africa is seeing the writing on the wall. I am interested to see what happens in the next episode. Will Africa have the right to get mad at Vawn if he goes home with another girl, because he was honest? She talks about respecting his honesty, but we will see what happens when push comes to shove.
Even when Emily talked to her in the store as a friend, Africa seems to already be caught under his spell. I know that we have all been there; where you defend your crush/boyfriend/girlfriend, even when your friends and family are telling you that it doesn’t seem right. I don’t know, we will see how it plays out.
Let me just say that Emily Lipman has thrown these fashion shows before and she works her BUTT off with them. I have never seen all of the behind-the-scenes work like I have in this episode, but this just shows what all it entails.
But that I have modeled in fashion shows before, and with Emily, I like to pick out my clothes. Sorry I’m not sorry. She has been known to put me in some clothes that would make most gay men uncomfortable, so I like to have a hand in what I am wearing. I love giving Emily shit about stuff, because it is so easy. She really is one of my best friends so we can have fun together, and I know how to press her buttons. . .and I take full advantage. I wouldn’t call it being "high maintenance," as she said, but more me just trying to ruffle her feathers and get a rise out of her.
