In this episode of IB, we meet, Brittany, a failed actress/yoga instructor who managed to steal away Eden’s previous boyfriend. In an attempt to cleanse her spirit and karma of doing Eden wrong, Brittany offers a free yoga class to Eden (and Brooke, who bargains for the extra slot – along with first pick of the yoga mats, the non-sweaty ones). It seems that Eden’s forgiveness is the only way for Brittany to get her spirit back in alignment.

Apparently, when Brittany stole Eden’s boyfriend, all sorts of darkness and bad descended upon her and the only way she could stop the onslaught was to immerse herself in all things new-age. And that darkness and bad wreaking havoc was apparently Eden, or, rather, Eden manifesting in the form of Brittany’s guilt- or karma, because apparently there was a disagreement between her Tarot cards and her rune stones… but it seems that Brittany’s incessant chanting of “Cease to be, scornful, bad-skinned spirit” drove Patrick nuts and he dumped her. And once that happened, the evil spirit went away. So Brittany quit her job to become a full-time yoga and meditation instructor (“You quit being an unemployed actress?” Brook brilliantly snarks) and the only thing that will get her back into spiritual alignment is Eden’s forgiveness.

So Eden takes Brittany up on her offer for a yoga class with Brooke tagging along. And we all know this will not end well… at least for Brittany.

The sad part is it’s apparent Brittany is an exceptional yoga/meditation instructor. She reads Eden’s spirit to such an extent that Catherine and Heather make themselves known to her. She believes them to be spirit guides existing on another plane and is very excited to interact with them.

However…

Upon threat of terrible illness, Katerina and Harriet (aliases for our beloved “Bitches”) encourage Brittany to “cleanse” herself by revealing some rather devastating secrets, despite her desire to offer up other ways of cleansing (Light some incense? Or fast? Buy a Prius?!) Instead, she is forced to admit such things as; she’s sleeping with a yoga student, despite the fact that he takes the class with his current girlfriend and Brittany’s only doing it to get a part in his movie; scamming a student by selling her Earl Grey tea mixed with tree bark; and that she is not astral projecting herself into another student’s subconscious, she’s just charging him for his wet dreams.

Each student storms out of the class, effectively ending Brittany’s career as a yoga/meditation instructor, but not before Eden, and Brooke, enjoy the destruction. When all is said and done, Eden offers up her forgiveness to Brittany, since, hey, Brittany kinda got what she deserved, and Brittany is left with an empty yoga studio…

Karma… it’s a bitch.

Pay close attention to Eden’s facial expressions once Brittany starts letting her secrets out. Our heroine is the picture of innocence, despite the fact that Brittany has read her spirit to such an extent that she’s managed to actually converse with Catherine and Heather! Even Brooke seems to be enjoying the utter devastation Brittany is experiencing before bolting the room with a supposedly non-sweaty yoga mat.

But who’s that guy in the back who never once breaks meditation? He looks like Waiter Guy to me.

P.S. to all the morons who have commented on the episode page on YouTube since it was a featured video the other day. You might try reading the show’s description before watching, crying about it, then posting a rude, obnoxious or just plain disgusting comment. If it’s porn you want, try looking up actual porn sites and stop trolling YouTube to get your jollies. I haven’t seen a pissier bunch of cry-baby 12-year olds in my life. Man, the crap that happens when grade school lets out for the summer… jeez…

P.P.S. I tagged Andrew in this entry and I don’t know why, but, since I don’t want to change my tags, let me just say… I like Andrew Miller. He created this funny show, writes a lot of this funny show and pimped this blog in the last IB Friends email… Plus, he got Eden to curse on tape. Thanks Andrew!
