Is This How Hot Hoteliers Really Pick Their Design Team?
Do hoteliers pick their design team based on who they are sleeping with? We sincerely hope not. But we have a feeling that it does happen this way quite a lot.
While we absolutely love Edie on "How to Make It in America," it looks like partyboy/bisexual hotelier, Darren, may have only hired her design firm because he wants her partner and his girlfriend, Rachel, to move in with him.
On last night's episode Edie and Rachel gave a presentation to Darren and his partners for their "hottest new hotel on the Bowery" (those are Edie's words.) Edie envisions the place to be a "Moroccan Breakfast at Tiffany's", whatever that means. Edie also thinks the key to a successful hotel is the interchange between public and private spaces or as one of the partners puts it: "Ladies in the parlour, whores in the bedroom." Um. Ok.
Nevertheless, Rachel freaks out about taking the job because she feels as if Darren is only offering it them to be closer to her. Which is he. But in the end, Edie tells her that they are doing the design for the hotel, Rachel's misgivings about Darren be damned. Or as Edie puts it "We could f*ck the shit out of this place."
Sadly, we're not sure if the hotel will even open in the show's first season as the season finale takes place next week. In other hotel sightings in this episode, Rene and Rasta Monsta founder John Lardner meet up for drinks at the Oak Room at The Plaza. But they skipped the $28 hamburger.
