Episode Summary

Tamara W.
Before: Tamara Wiggins is an artist turned computer geek, troubled over the feeling she is not fulfilling her true calling. A mother of two, she wants her children to know her as the woman she once strived to be. In preparation for her first art show, watch as The Gal Pals help Tamara put the mouse pad away and her paintbrush to use. After: Despite a few nerves in the kitchen (the phone is kept handy "in case I gotta call 911"), the pork is stuffed and on the stove in no time. Next it's on with the make-up, into her slinky, low-cut dress ("If you've got 'em, flaunt 'em," Honey advises) and a few minutes of quality hair time with a hot iron. Now all Tamara has to worry about is whether her va-va-voominess will still all the attention away from her beautiful art. Knock-knock, family's home. Damien is delighted ("shut uuuup!"), though their youngest might not recognize mommy with pretty hair - or their fabulously styled apartment. Together, they dig in to dinner and get to know goat cheese. A champagne toast and it's off to the gallery for Tamara's big show. At the art show, her friends and family give a huge holler for her new style. Even her mom, a tough critique, loves the hair and pronounces the whole look "sophisticated." After a few words, the partition comes down and her work is on display - a big improvement from the living room floor. Even the gallery owner weighs in, expressing her admiration for an especially expressive piece. The evening is capped off with the words every child hopes to hear, "I'm so proud of you...I'm so proud that you're my baby."moreless
