Shiralee1The stakes are high. Nerves are on edge. Sniping is on the rise. And that’s just among the judges in this week’s edition of “On the Lot.”

Shira-Lee Shalit (pictured) at the top of this week’s show. We see a montage of Shira-Lee at work in her trademark straw hats, and then she’s on her way, positive attitude in tow.
