My gf is the smartest of the planet. In the very beginning she said, "Nicole is the one who starts things to get Paris laughing...she's bad!!" I didn't really think about it, but now I full-on agree. Nicole is the lil trouble maker and is the one to totally get them in trouble.
Paris, you could see, was feeling bad about the mirror and birdhouse...looked like she had to talk Nicole into giving the guy the MC number.
What a bummer that they did that though, for the first time I was like..."Ok. That's bad". It's good for the show, to laugh at...but not the fact that they stole someone else's money. (I'll still hold out in thinking that they planned on paying for it w/thier own $$ after the show)
Anyway..I still love the show.
