Tensions were high on "Jerseylicious" Sunday as the two salons competed for the time of two stylists for big marketing events.
's Gayle Giacomo, of Bridgewater, and Christy Pereira planned a big launch party for the new product line, but the plans relied on Olivia Blois Sharpe, a former Montville High School graduate, and Tracy DiMarco, both Gatsby to Go stylists.
That would have been fine, except the date of the party conflicted with a photoshoot planned for the Anthony Roberts Salon. Sharpe and DiMarco were expected to help with the makeup and hair for the shoot, and as the shoot dragged on, they got nervous.
Meanwhile, their assistants Miguel and Krystle, stepped in. They had presented an idea for the Gatsby launch party featuring models breaking through photos for a "before and after" look at what the salon's new product line can do.
Unencumbered by other commitments, they arrived to begin preparing the models for the launch party as DiMarco and Sharpe were helping the Anthony Roberts Salon photo shoot.
As the shoot dragged on, they became nervous about making it to the launch party in time.
Finally, Anthony Roberts owner Anthony Lombardi had had enough and told them to "go, just go."
They arrived with just enough time to catch the models' introductions to the crowd, as Miguel and Krystle stole their thunder.
"Is this opposites day?" DiMarco asked, after getting dissed by Miguel. "We hired these guys, and now they're turning around and treating us like dirt?"
But Giacomo was happy with the event, despite the troubles.
"Overall, this party has been a huge success," she said at the episode's conclusion.
DiMarco offered an apology, but Giacomo let her know how disappointed she was that they missed the big event.
"Jerseylicious" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on the Style Network.
