The show opened with an Annie voice-over ala Sex and the City over images of Jen crying over her baby, Navid and Silver looking like they were going to kiss, Naomi going somewhere with Oscar and Adrianna walking the red carpet with Joe Jonas. Huh? Let’s rewind to one day earlier…
Navid had lunch with his father and blurted out that he knew his high school locker-mate was in his dad’s porn movies. So dad thanked Navid. Cue Navid to look relieved. Then Kaitlin, the teenage porn star, confronted Navid at school. She said she got fired and that she wasn’t the only underage teen in his dad’s productions. Silver was there to comfort him and agreed to pose as an adult actress to see if it was true. At the audition she talked to another actress Holly about being underage. Holly said age didn’t matter and that the producers didn’t care. Silver weasled out of her audition by claiming she forgot her paperwork in her car. She told Navid what happened so Navid went to confront his dad. Basically his dad shut him down because Navid had a good life because of his dad’s business. Navid wondered if it was true that he was a spoiled, rich brat living off his dad’s child pornography. He told the school counselor this and she went to tell the principal.
Adrianna was going to a red carpet party and her manager told her she had to be escorted by Disney star Joe Jonas. She was a bit upset that she couldn’t take Navid but tried to justify it by it being good for her career. Navid wasn’t happy so he again turned to Silver for support.
Annie and Dixon accidentally opened an envelope for their mom with their parent’s divorce papers inside. They said that since their mom still wore her wedding ring that there could be hope that the folks would get back together. So they decided to visit their dad at his new place. For some reason I thought he had gone back to Kansas already. When they knocked on the door a woman answered and they were taken aback that their dad had already started dating. Back at home they told mom Debbie about it and she pretended like she knew already but didn’t tell them because she didn’t know how they would react.
Jen was getting ready to go to a yummy-mummy trunk show. At the event, she stuck her foot in her mouth about breast-feeding: “it’s so National Geographic.” And almost took the wrong baby home. Back at home Jacques/Jack fell off the diaper-changing table when Jen was changing his diaper. She fell apart and said she was a bad mother. Ryan tried to assure her that she was a good mother and she shouldn’t listen to others.
Naomi wanted to thank Oscar for helping her last time with Mr. Cannon. Oscar invited himself to be her date at the Adrianna party that night. But Naomi bumped into Ivy who told her to stay away from Oscar because he was evil. Dixon still wouldn’t forgive Ivy for sleeping with Oscar, even though he was the one who pushed her away because of the Sasha/HIV thing. And now Navid and Liam were avoiding Ivy too.
So at the red carpet event Adrianna was nervous about the whole thing but Joe Jonas told her to just be herself. When an E! News guy asked if the two were dating, Adrianna said no and pulled over Navid and said he was her boyfriend. Her manager got mad, but Ade grew a spine and told him that since they both wanted her to be successful he couldn’t blackmail her anymore. She then told him that he would be making only 5 percent off her instead of his 80 percent. Silver looked a bit upset that Ade was back with Navid because right before they almost kissed when Silver was consoling Navid about his dad.
Also at the party – Naomi told Oscar that they should go somewhere more private because she wanted to be alone with him. They headed out to the pool and had a contest to see who could get naked and in the pool first. Oscar won, but then Ivy showed up and took his clothes. He still wouldn’t really apologize to her so she turned on the lights and everyone came out to look/laugh at him.
Inside the party Debbie was trying to figure out Jen’s diary and coordinating times for Ryan to take the baby. But she had a breakdown because she didn’t know that her ex was seeing someone else. Ryan consoled her.
Back at home Annie read a passage from her college application essay saying how her mom was her hero. This was the voice-over we heard earlier. Debbie hugged her and said that was exactly what she needed to hear then.
Naomi went over to Jen’s but found Ryan there reading a note on the stairs. Jen took off and left the baby in his care.
Next episode: Debbie and Ryan get together. Annie strips to be with Charlie but finds him in a room full of other people
