Episode Summary

EDIT
Behind the Music
AIRED:
Alecia is having a great time singing with the rock band that Niki's boyfriend Ethan belongs to. The band gets a big gig opening for rock star Samantha Slinky at the Loft. Lots of record company people will be there, so Niki determines to give Ethan a rock star makeover. That starts Alecia worrying that she doesn't look the part of a rock singer. She imagines that her butt is way too big, and her delusion gets worse when her mom says she's going on a diet because the women in her family tend to get "hippy" as they age. Meanwhile, Cris and Sierra try to come up with a band name to replace "Itchy Boxers!"

Alecia goes on an unnecessarily strict diet and begins almost constant exercise to lose the imagined inches off her butt. At school she almost passes out from lack of food and fatigue. Her personality is affected too, as she gets into an argument with the band and is fired and/or quits on the eve of the big gig. When she returns home, Alecia finds the girls waiting for her, along with her mother, whom they contacted out of concern for her. Mom and Niki say they think they might have contributed to Alecia's fears by talking about appearances, and the girls all agree that media images give women an impossible standard for everyone to live up to. Mrs. Alcott insists that Alecia eat, something her daughter is now ready to do. Alecia makes up with the band, given the name "Cool With Me" at the last minute, and the gig goes off successfully.moreless
