OXYGEN'S 'PRETTY WICKED' LADIES GET TRUE DOSE OF REALITY WHEN THEY MUST AUCTION OFF PERSONAL ITEMS TO BENEFIT LOS ANGELES HOMELESS SHELTER
Episode Premieres Tuesday, April 7 at 10pm ET/PT
NEW YORK - April 6, 2009 � The claws come out on this week's episode of "Pretty Wicked," premiering Tuesday, April 7 at 10pm ET/PT, when the ladies are forced to sell off prized possessions to benefit Los Angeles' Midnight Mission homeless shelter.
In an effort to humble some the "Pretty Wicked" ladies, judge Dr. Jenn Berman sends them to the "skid row" area of Los Angeles to serve the homeless and get a first- hand account of those less fortunate than themselves. However, the sentiment gets lost when Vanessa admits if she had to choose one item she could not live without, she would choose a mirror over a book.
Once they are back at the loft, Vanessa and the other ladies are challenged to face their materialistic ways when host CariDee English announces they must auction off some of their personal items to benefit the homeless shelter they visited. Split into three teams, the ladies auction items ranging from gift cards and massages to Vanessa's most prized possession � her $800 Louis Vuitton shoes. After the winning team is announced, it's revealed some of the ladies lied about the items' authenticity � causing a screaming match between widely hated, Ana, and the no-holds barred Sarah R.
Chaos erupts to another level as the ladies unleash their true feelings about each other, prompting Amber to abruptly quit the competition and leave the loft. Can the girls convince her to stay? Will Ana and Sarah R.'s fight win them a spot in the bottom three for elimination?
