On last night's episode, posing instructor Benny Ninja (why doesn't he have an official title like "Diva Runway Coach Extraordinaire" or "Noted Fashion Photographer"?) taught the girls about commercial, couture and catalog modeling. Many of them couldn't seem to tell the difference between the three, and frankly, neither could I. I know that couture is "weird", and commercial and catalog seemed identical to me, other than the fact that one of them seems to involve checking the time on an invisible watch. Oh, the other awesome thing last night was when Dominique accused Whitney of being racist. (Note to Dominique: Just because someone is a bitch to a person of color, it doesn't count as racist sentiment unless the remark is actually racial.) Whitney's reaction was priceless: "My best friend is black!" I couldn't help but think she was referring to Tyra. Suck up.
@type_slowly: Except the Dominique is CLEARLY a dumb bitch, color be damned. Sorry, I LOVE Whitney. She is saying what I am thinking and she has the wit to back up being a TOTAL bitch. And the fact that my other least fav reamining girl, Fatima doesn't like her makes me more solidly sure that Whitney actually IS my fav (tied with Claire).
@battleaxonista: I actually thought this was the only appropriate time I've ever heard "My best friend is black". NORMALLY the sentence is "Some of my best friends are black" and it follows a massively inappropriate racial comment or stereotype. This was followed by a completely baseless accusation from Dominique.
