Despite Chantal taking a stand against Claudia’s attempt to make money for their shared business, she loses the battle and agrees to do the pop-up. However, she doesn’t agree to it gracefully and instead says, “It’s not the vacation we aimed for since we’re doing this pop-up, but I’m going to put on a brave face and blame Claudia when this all fails.”
As usual her mature attitude knows no bounds. She’s a team player. If teams were defined as one person who’s only out for herself.
Unlike Amy, who’s actually such a team player that she forgets to put herself in the game. Yes, it’s true. Sometimes she tries so hard to be there for other people, she forgets to be there for herself — making her a prime candiate to be taken advantage of by the End of Century girls.
For some zany (scripted) reason, Amy decides to prove herself to the art world by helping Chantal and Claudia set up their pop-up shop in Miami. Since she grew up there, she has tons of great connections and just knows she can make this happen. But an impromptu pop-up shop isn’t all she offers. She also offers to be their very bestest friend in the world and makes her case by feeding them breakfast in her ginormous Miami mansion.
While Claudia and Angela pretend to enjoy their FREE breakfasts provided by their new free pop-up shop consultant, Chantal loudly proclaims, “I need a real coffee, this is like Folgers.” And then follows that up with the requisite evil giggle, “I need to learn manners.”
While I’d normally think this was her way of being cute, I now see everything differently. I mean, the girl was raised by wolves. We should be happy she even knows that manners exist.
Or I guess what I should say is that you can understand Chantal Chadwick and her peculiar behavior a lot easier if you pretend this show is her first attempt at interacting with humans. It helps you sympathize with her a little bit more. Or at least makes you want to punch the TV a little bit less.
