Last episode, I finally made my decision about Kim Kimble. I no longer like her. She prides herself in being a diva. Well if being a diva means delusional and immature, then Kim, you are IT. Kim decided to she wanted to open a salon in Atlanta like she had talked about forever and ever. Black and thick is a little more popular in Atlanta then say, L.A. She might even meet a man who will wine and dine her and feed her buttery grits.
She has conveniently had the producers hook her up with some celebrity hair in Episode 3 (not A-list but pretend celebrity) to make her look important when she gets there and on television. She announced to the salon that they were going to Atlanta!!!! This does not put her sister Leah in a good place. First off, she did not agree to open another shop this soon. Secondly, Kim had strange ideas about having a “pop up” salon. Whatever the hell that is. I wonder if she can find a “pop up” staff while she is at it. Surely she could do better than this bunch of ridiculous “professionals.” Even a cardboard cutout moves a little more than say, China. Plus it is definitely more attractive.
Leah was mad because Kim made the announcement without filling her in first. Actually, Leah, like most people who are in charge of opening a new store in a short period of time, likes to plan. That one doesn’t compute in Kim’s fluffy head because, hey, Leah works for HER. She will do whatever her head of fake hair says do. Even if her dumb plans do not exactly make too much sense. Please refer to the previous “pop up” idea for examples.
Leah put her anger aside and did what she needed to do. What her boss told her to. Off they went to Atlanta and brought Terry and Dontay along with them. Each of those hair stylists got to hire their own stylist for the day. It was a one day event to see how Kim Kimble would do there. Leah was grumpy as usual, because Kim is a bubble head. She made Leah find a salon at the last minute, have all of these wigs sent to the salon, and set it all up by herself. The stylists, nor Kim, had any intention on helping with it and aren’t shy about saying it. Why they didn’t hire a crew to help them set up the store, I’ll never know. Obviously they are not pulling enough cash in from the salon or the show.
The salon opened from the barber shop they decided to call a salon. Pretend black celebrities everywhere. Not a white face to be had! Terry’s stylist was professional and educated. Dontay burst with pride when his came in. Her name was LaToya and she was wrapped in carpets of fake hair and had some seriously tight jeans glued on her body. She was obviously not one dedicated to fitness or healthy eating, but she was loving life so it’s all good. He loves ghetto glam and he was all over her outfit like white on rice.
Leah announced they were going to have a contest on who sold the most rat pieces they were calling wigs. It was between Dontay and Terry’s teams. The day rolled on, with Kim squealing all over the place at every pretend celebrity. She thought the louder she screamed their names, the more likely it would be for people to figure out who the hell they were. Sorry, Kim. Didn’t work.
This is Kim Kimble’s thinking face, which you won’t see often.
Meanwhile, back at the other mess of a shop, we had China, Naja, Lisa, Jas and Anthony. Naja was recovering from her fight with Angela at her party. Jas came in and told Naja she was too old to fight like that. Actually, Jas, ANY age is too old to fight like she and Angela did.
Lisa bored us as she continued to run around and bitch about her clippers that were broken by Anthony during their fight. Shut UP already Lisa. You are three times bigger than him and acted like a ratchet ho. That man/woman ran around and whined to her clients too. Seriously honey. Shut up all ready and quit begging your customers to talk to Anthony for you. Admit your part in it if you MUST keep bringing it up and MOVE the hell on. So high school.
Meanwhile, in Atlanta, Dontay and his stylist acted so stank, they stole clients out of other stylist’s chairs. Looks like they had lots of customers in that day who wanted to look like five cent hookers. Who better to accomplish this than Dontay and his bitch twin? Surprise, surprise. Ghetto fabulous is even MORE popular in that area of Atlanta than in L.A.! LaToya and Dontay sold a zillion more wigs than Terry’s team.
The day went well and at the end Kim made an announcement. They were going to open a salon in Atlanta! Hooray! The staff threw drumsticks in the air and Leah, beyond pissed about having yet another job thrown at her, yelled at Kim and slammed the door in a huff.
