Plus One

The Line.
does make sure to clean does evreything not just the crappy job you usually do.
Bye, Jules.
Nice bag and great hair.
No wonder her life is a mess.
Tinsley: I'm leaving my husband Topper.
I started dating somebody new.
I'm so happy you're here.
I cannot understand why Tinsley finds attraction to this terrible prince.
My God, Tinsley.
I want to look at everything that was filmed today.
Stop, stop, stop, baby.
Anything from the hip up-- I'm not going to do this.
Done.

I'm standing up for my friend! It's about society, power, fame, influence ♪ Oh, yeah, we're going down ♪ everybody wants to be on top.
You're a mean girl.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about stability.
My marriage didn't make me happy, but dating is all about the roller coaster-- highs and lows, passion, and then the disappointment.
My can't I not be said that my boyfriend isn't in Paris with me? Because we hadn't discussed it.
You didn't clear that with me.
I don't like it.
I'm not sure if I miss my husband, or if I just miss the stability.
I don't know the answer.
- Hello, Miss Tinsley.
- Hi! - Hey! - How are you? - Fine.
- Nice to see you.
Thanks, Mrs.
Tinsley.
Baby, do you remember Fanny? - Hi! - You remember Fanny? Fanny is my housekeeper.
She was the housekeeper that Topper and I had for several years that worked at our other apartment on the upper east side.
So this is the new place.
Nice apartment, Mrs.
Tinsley.
I think it makes me more comfortable, her working for me, and also that she's working for Topper.
To me, it's kind of like a little connection to the past, to Topper.
I got these, the old sheets and stuff from the ones that I had, like, the "TM" and stuff.
I mean, since it's still my initials, too.
I don't know if Topper knows yet though that Fanny's working for me.
How is Topper? Um, it's just-- Mmm, he's okay.
- He's okay? - Yeah.
But do you see him ever? No, I didn't see from last week, but I don't know if he's even staying there right now.
Is he there a lot of the time? Yeah, yeah.
So you don't see anybody else? - Yeah, yeah, yeah.
- Just him.
- Yes.
- Just him? Okay.
So just let me know what's going on a little bit, if you can.
Okay? If you can.
- Okay, Mrs.
Tinsley.
- Okay.
I don't worry that Fanny's going to say anything that's going on at my place at all.
If she wanted to share anything that's going on with me, I think that's totally fine.
So here's some cleaning stuff.
And here's a mop, so you can just get started.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome, Mrs.
Tinsley.
Thank you.
[alarm beeping] There's not a lot during the day going on at our apartment.
There's a lot of sleeping going on, I think.
Typically I spend my morning in bed ordering in room service and going on-line on my laptop.
Hi, can I have the hotel manager, please? Hi I met a really cute guy.
His name is Tommy.
- Tommy, you're really hot.
- Oh, wow.
This is the first guy that I'm starting to feel like butterflies in the stomach feeling.
I want to see us be able to get to know each other.
So today I'm going to meet Tommy at a gym.
- How are you? - Good, good.
I'm so sweaty.
I'm sorry.
Gross.
Just kidding.
Good.
What made you want to come work out? I don't know.
I'm trying to bulk up a little.
Yeah? You're in for a good workout.
How do I stop? Oh, my God.
[laughs] This is the hardest thing I've ever done.
Now you're warmed up, though.
You're good.
We're going to bench press.
I don't even know what that means.
All right, lay down.
Whoa! - Oh, my God.
- Paul, focus.
How am I supposed to focus? Let's move on.
I have a good body, but it's skinny good.
I want it to be hot skinny good.
I do have amazing legs.
That's from ten years of ballet, swim team, and crew.
My legs are really hot, but they could be bigger.
- We better do abs, then.
- I know.
[squeals] Don't punch me.
- Are you ready? - [laughs] We had a great time.
He made me laugh.
There's so much grunting.
- Oh, my God.
- Oh, my God, Paul! It was so much fun to get to know him a little bit more.
That was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life.
- Like, I died.
- You did good, though.
But I really need a huge slice of pizza.
♪ I want to live, live, live, ♪ ♪ In a technicolor world ♪ ♪ I want a dance, dance, dance, dance ♪ ♪ With every kind of girl ♪ Our premiere issue is going to sizzle.
It's going to offend people.
Devorah: My name is Devorah Rose.
I'm the editor-in-chief of "Social Life" magazine.
and a lot of people consider me the sexy social.
Some people think I'm scandalous because I wear these outrageous dresses.
I've got assets and I like to show them off.
My offices right now are offensive they're so gorgeous.
♪ Come on ♪ Seriously, we need to talk about business.
When it comes to the socialite universe, I like to get all the info on everyone.
If someone sneezes, I'm going to get a text about it.
I can make or break a social.
I helped Tinsley become who she is.
I put her on the cover of my magazine and helped her become sexier and more fun and less self-conscious.
When I put her on the cover of the magazine, the article I wrote about her was so amazing.
were really close for awhile, and then she disappeared.
Tinsley and I used to text all the time, we would e-mail.
If I felt depressed about something, I would confide in her.
And then suddenly she disappeared, and I don't know why.
I feel like I really empowered her and she turned her back on me.
And you know what? I don't let people use me.
I need the dirt on Tinsley.
There have been a lot of rors about Tinsley.
She's losing that Tinsley shine.
Devorah Rose is what you would call a total trollop.
She is the kind of girl who comes from nowhere and yet she's somehow wormed her way into this New York scene that we all live in.
Paul Johnson-Calderon isn't from the Johnson & Johnson family.
Everybody may know Paul's name, but nobody takes him seriously.
What disgusts me most about Devorah Rose is that she's really abusing the title "socialite", and making it a really awful, disgusting thing that no one wants to be.
She's also just gross to look at.
I don't know, she's a vile, vile, vile thing.
I'll tell you what I think about Jules Darling Kirby.
She's racist, she's homophobic, I'd literally rather swim in vomit than sit next to her.
I don't know Devorah very well.
She did write a very lovely article about me two years ago for her "Social Life" magazine.
I don't want to be mean about her or anything, but she's not one of my friends.
You said you were by yourself.
- I saw Casimir.
My heart just stopped.
Please go.
No, I'm serious.
Please go.
Tinsley: One of my passions is my handbag line.
I love designing my handbags.
I'm under a deadline.
It's really important, so I'm stressed.
Hi.
I really want to make affordable bags for everybody.
So I like to make things that I love to wear that are really stylish for around $200.
Oh, my God.
Whenever I see pink, I go crazy.
And what is this a yard? This is $52.
95 a yard.
Is there one step down from this? - Uh, polyester.
- [sighs] "Polyester" is a word th I cringe when I hear it, but it actually doesn't have to be so negative.
Let's get this.
Ooh! Oh, God.
Oh, my God.
My phone.
That is not good.
That is not good.
Oh, no.
Oh, my God.
If this breaks, I won't be able to survive.
I dropped it and broke it, so I hope that-- It's coming back on, thank God.
Thank you so much.
- Hey, Jamie.
- Hey, how are you? One great thing about living where I live in midtown is that I am now a block away from my handbag factory.
The dummies are made out of canvas to see if the shape works.
And then the next sample will be made in leather.
I'm sorry, I know you need a lot more time, usually, but I really need these to get done.
If I don't get the dummies done in one week, then it puts me way behind schedule.
These straps look weird to me.
This is just the most important time for me right now, I don't want to be a public failure.
I think it needs to get tighter.
I love getting in the factory and cutting the fabric, and the stitches, and to watch a bag go from a little drawing that I do up into this creation.
It's exciting.
I want to show you exactly how this is done.
So we've got six weeks to do this.
Can you help me get my jacket off? I'm getting stressed.
The pressure is on.
I need to get my handbags in boutiques all over the world.
That's what's on the line right now.
Great.
Thank you so much.
How do you do this? Today my mom is coming over to see my new apartment that now has all the furniture all in place, and ale decorating that I've done for it to be my new home.
- Oh, my goodness.
- Hi, Mommy.
This is your first decorating job, right? Well, Mom, it's all the stuff that we did together, but it's just all here.
Dale: It's coming along well.
It looks nice.
There were some things I would do differently.
- Oh, my God.
- No! What? - The blue! - You hate it.
Blue paint you can't do.
It just doesn't work.
It's like the inside of a swimming pool.
In fact, Tinsley, stop him right now.
- Really? - Yeah, Tinsley.
This is not good.
- Sorry.
- Sorry.
- It's not your fault.
- She hates the blue.
It's not your fault.
It's her fault.
I know, because I-- You were supposed to come her earlier to help me.
- No, I'm sorry-- - You had someone visiting.
I couldn't come, remember? - No, I didn't.
- Oh.
The only icky thing about going to that apartment is that I really honestly felt the presence Prince Casimir, and I know that Casimir somehow was sneaking out of the apartment when I came in.
It's all sneaky-sneaky, and I don't like that.
That's my suspicion.
Where are you going tonight? I'm going to this benefit.
- What are you wearing? - I'm not sure.
I called some stuff in.
I want to wear short tonight.
So Who is your date tonight? I don't know.
- You don't know? - No, I don't.
I don't know who's going.
Honestly, I don't.
Oh.
The look on her face.
It was obvious she was hiding something.
I mean, this event is one of the biggest events of the year, it's total black tie and red carpet, and I just can't believe that Tinsley would go there by herself.
Okay, darling.
Love you.
Okay, Mommy.
Love you.
So once I saw that look on Tinsley's face, I thought, "Something's going on here, and I'm going to find out.
" PJ, you have got to find me a dress for tonight.
A major dress.
You've got about three hours.
I really need something special.
Okay, bye.
Love you.
- Unh-unh.
- Casimir.
I'm not going to have somebody come into her life and ruin it for her.
Hi.
Tinsley: Tonight is a really lovely benefit.
It's black tie.
It's just a really nice event that's happening in the city.
[crowd chattering] I was wearing this really super cute Marchesa dress and I had braided my hair and was wearing my favorite YSL shoes that I can't get enough of.
Of course, I was wearing one of my handbags, and it was a leopard print.
And I was posing with it right in front of me.
Oh, hi.
Hi.
Tinsley.
Nice to meet you.
Hi.
How are you? Sorry.
I remember you cut my hair for that photo shoot.
Good! It's not a-- Is that what you-- No, no, no.
I can.
He's dating.
Topper's dating.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I can date.
Casimir is coming to the event, which means so much me, because it's the first event that we've ever been to in the city together.
I felt like him coming to the event would really make a statement that we were actually-- we're going to do this and we're going to be official and we're going to be a couple.
Hi.
Thank you.
You look good.
You look handsome.
You look good.
When he showed up and I saw him, I was just so happy.
He looked so handsome in his black tie, and he just looked so charming, and he gave me a kiss.
It was funny because I think we were a little bit awkward with each other because I knew that people were certainly looking at us and they were thinking, "Oh, my God, that's the guy.
That's the one.
" I'm happy you came.
- You like my braid? - Yeah.
Is that cute? Okay.
Okay.
Okay, thanks.
- Tinsley! - Mom! I decided I would be your date tonight.
- Hi.
- Hi, darling.
That's really funny.
When I saw my mom come in, I was just utterly, completely shocked.
I never expected her to come to that event.
I was stunned.
I couldn't believe that she would have put me in that situation.
You said you were by yourself.
- Um - So I thought I'd be your date.
I'm-- No, I'm-- I'm not by myself.
You're not? Oh, my God.
I'm not, because I'm here with someone, Mommy.
Can I sit with you at the table? No, Mommy.
I'm going to-- I have to go to the bathroom right now.
- You look so pretty.
- Thanks.
I am just so upset with myself that I have had to hide my feelings for Casimir to my mother, because I feel like she wants so badly to hope that there might be a future between me and Topper.
Okay, Mommy, I need you to go, please.
Please leave.
Please leave.
I'm not leaving, honey.
I'm all dressed.
Mommy, this is going to be embarrassing when I'm seated at a table and I can't have you sit there.
You're not invited here.
I had a plus-one, and now there's somebody else here with me.
Could you just please go? - I don't-- - Why are you so weird, Tinsley? Why are you so angry that I'm here? I thought it would be a nice surprise.
I don't know, Mom.
I really-- I'm shocked.
I just-- I just can't.
Now I don't know what to do.
I mean, you want me to leave? Yeah, I want you to leave.
Your dress is amazing, though.
Thank you.
Please go.
No, I'm serious.
Please go.
- Please go.
Mommy, please go.
- I can't go.
No, you have to leave right now.
You have to go.
This is bad for me and this whole place.
Want another "Page Six" item right now? Please go.
Honestly, go.
Go.
Go.
Dale: So when Tinsley ran back up the steps, and left her mother, whom she's always loved and been close to, at the bottom of the steps all dressed in a pretty dress ready to have a nice time at a party, I just knew it had to be the prince.
He was there, and it really hurt my feelings.
It hurt my feelings because it so wasn't the daughter I know.
Casimir! I would just like to speak to you just for a moment.
The look on her face, of chagrin, of horror was more than you could imagine.
Tinsley had told me to leave, but I just wouldn't do it.
I had to go up there and at least try to find Casimir.
I thought, I am going to go talk to Casimir, and I'm going to ask him why he keeps Tinsley separated from me, from Topper, from all of her family.
[elevator bell dings] Tinsley: When I got to the table, Casimir wasn't there.
[no audible dialogue] And I sat down at the table, and as I looked over to my right into the darkness beyond, I saw Casimir.
My heart just stopped.
I just thought, "I have to speak to him now.
" It would be my only moment.
I knew that.
And he disappeared.
I went outside, I went inside, I went down the steps, up the steps.
I just feel there's something secretive about this man.
He's always hiding, hiding in the cracks somewhere.
You can never find him.
He ran into the kitchen of the hotel, and then Tinsley jumps up and she runs into the kitchen.
So then I thought, "I'm going to the kitchen.
" Unh-unh.
Unh-unh.
Casimir! Unh-unh.
Casimir, I would just like to speak to you.
Mom! And the look on her face of chagrin, of horror, was more than you could imagine.
And Casimir looked at me and he disappeared.
He just disappeared.
[applause] I mean, the darts that were coming out of her eyes to her own mother.
She was looking at me like, "Get out of here.
" I was just shocked that my mom would actually put me in that position where reporters might say something mean about her about it.
And I'm sick that my mom has acted so embarrassingly.
Dale: I love that girl, and I'm not going to have somebody come into her life and ruin it for her, and that's what I see him doing.
I see him wrecking her life.
Announcer: Next time, on "High Society" Man: What are you doing tonight? Tinsley: I wanted to give Paul a chance so he dressed me for the opera.
This is an outfit that I'd love to see you in.
Paul: Yet another social scandal is out there about me and it's going to be on "Page Six".
[bleep].
Devorah: I was snubbed by Tinsley at the opera.
I'm going to write the definitive story of Tinsley Mortimer's fall, and I'm going to let all of New York city know who she really is, and what she's up to.
