Episode Summary

EDIT
Finding Authenticity
AIRED:
Nyanza tells her story: she harbors a lot of guilt because her older sister called her from the hospital and Nyanza, very busy at work and thinking her sister’s illness was minor, told her secretary to take a message. Nyanza’s sister then had a heart attack and suffered severe brain damage. Nyanza feels “crappy” because if she were ever in the hospital, she doesn’t think that anyone would come to see her. Her goal is to find her “authentic self”. Nyanza then shares pictures of her extensive designer handbag collection. Rana shares Nyanza’s assignment: choose two of her favorite outfits and donate them to charity. Nyanza is not pleased, but does give up some designer clothes. Rana says she hopes that Nyanza will come to realize that expensive material objects do not define who she is on the inside. Nyanza volunteers to help out at the charity once a week. Lori’s task is to videotape men she finds attractive. She is able to complete this assignment without thinking about her late husband. She feels “good, with a touch of guilt” about this. Andy reveals her extreme anxiety about her interview, and her taxi is late. Her interview goes well, and Andy lights up while talking about her passion: making stylish fashion without spending a lot of money on designer labels. Once again, the other women hit the town that evening without Andy.moreless
