Someone tell me if I'm being paranoid. Well, don't tell me, the voices in my head will.
I've been watching "While You Were Out" more than I usually do and in the last week or so, have seen three different episodes where Chayse was the designer. On every single show, Theresa (and Leslie Segretti) complained about Chayse in a way that was meaner than the usual griping and play-fighting. Theresa said some nasty things about the designs and even went so far as to make fun of the designs to the homeowner. Then she and Leslie sat and rolled their eyes and basically ran down the room. On one project in particular (a Thai-styled bedroom), Theresa had Leslie and Andrew in the room alone and unless my ears were totally wrong, compared the paint treatment to smearing poop on the wall. Leslie agreed, Andrew was trying to be diplomatic and didn't say anything, and Chayse obviously heard because when she came into the room, you could see the frost forming on her face when she talked to Theresa. Then Theresa asked the homeowner what he thought of the paint with her face all scrunched up (hinting that the correct answer was that it sucked) and when he said he liked it, she kept trying to give him reasons not to like it. That same ep had lots of sewing and Leslie whined and complained and kept threatening to just leave the job.
I know there are lots of little play animosities and I'm sure Chayse can be demanding and a little abrasive herself. But is anyone else picking up on this meanness? It seems above and beyond any other griping about a designer that I see on the show, which is a shame because IMO, Chayse does the best rooms. I'm ready to just flip the channel when Theresa's on instead of Evan, who I've NEVER seen be mean or undermine any designer.
Okay, now you can tell me I'm paranoid, I guess.
