Who thinks I'll give thousands to some twenty somethings to run an art gallery, that's a good investment.
Seriously! And for an ART GALLERY, no less, which is a risky investment period, even for a seasoned gallery owner/art professional. Unfortunately, those girls are not one iota professional. The way they treated Liz and Maggie when they *dared* to come to the gallery opening was just appalling. I wanted to yell, "You IDIOTS! Those girls have real money and actually came out to your crappy-assed gallery and probably would've bought some items from you if you'd actually been nice and welcoming to them!!"
It seems like they were so stupidly focused on that BIG OPENING NIGHT((which looked more like a sad hipster kegger to me)) that they forgot somewhere along the line that they're running a supposed business. Real business-like to get wasted((Chantal)) and cram enough poor artist types into your tiny space to get busted. And if you want a good business, you have to welcome customers of all types, even those who will ruin your 'image'(ugh!).
I was so embarrassed for those Brooklyn girls, whom I'd actually hoped I would be rooting for---unfortunately, they just came off as the typically pretentious hipster types who ruin the supposedly open-minded ideal they represent. And actually laughing at a girl who works at another gallery
because she's blonde and from Orange County? God, grow the fuck up already and get out of high school!
At least Liz knows how to do party small-talk without standing there awkwardly because someone not in their usual sad social circles dared talk to them. And then to turn their noses up at a post-dinner party invite because it
would ruin their 'image'? Ugh, you suck! Go back to college and learn some basic social skills. And Chantal, quit talking like a stoner Valley Girl---you sound/act like a moron.
Seriously though, I see 'businesses' like theirs come and go in the hipster area of my city. Just pampered little girls trying desperately to be edgy being fronted on daddy's dime, nothing more.
The Asian chick just seemed so sadly lost to me. Oh good for you, you like to show your naked bits to the world. Obviously your parents are very proud of you.
Speaking of morons, what the Hell was that whole Maggie "meeting" about?
She just left after two weeks off because Eli dared boss her around?? Oh boo-hoo, honey. Go work fast food and then see how the real world is. Then she has the nerve to crawl back, and acts like a complete mush-mouthed imbecile at that "meeting" with Eli---does she not know how to engage in a professional conversation? I was cringing that entire time, especially when she whispered all dramatically, "I've been here since college!" What a sad little hair-stroking little twit. She seemed half retarded during that entire exchange.
I expected to hate Liz, and on one level I do, but at least she owns and explains her behavior well. And at least she appears to have some working brain cells. Also, she's at least friendly and socially-engaging, which is much more than I can say for those immature Brooklyn brats.
Amy just strikes me as a harmless little rich girl with big dreams living the life. I found her oddly endearing by the end of this. She wasn't even bitchy or territorial with the new girl((God, I forget her name but she seemed harmless, drama-free but boring)) and seems to have big goals for her art career.
Still a very entertaining show, despite the overwhelmingly annoying characters. But then again, the ones on these shows usually are pampered, vapid twits with no professionalism and actual social/conversational skills beyond eye-rolling and awkwardly staring at each other a'la "The Hills" and "The City."
I'll keep watching merely because I adore the art scene and Manhattan.
