We see the two ladies walking into the wine bar together as they glance around the room for an open table. They find one and have a seat opposite from one another as the server comes they order their glasses of wine and begin catching up with each other and filling each other in on whats been happening.
“Today I’m meeting up with Lauralie for a few drinks to talk about the state of her relationship with Tyler… I hate that she’s been isolated from the rest of the women so hopefully it went well.”
Jac: Hi my love!!! You look great.
Lauralie: Thank you. Love your outfit too. How’s it going?
Jac: Yeah everything has been okay. I’m not sure if you know but my husband and I are working on opening his 20th night club right now in Ibiza so that has been consuming a lot of my time. Plus Twitter Fashion Week is coming up and that has me kind of stressed *laughs* What about you? How was your sit down with Ty?
“I feel like that I’m only friends with Jac at this moment. She has grown in my eyes and I hope we can improve our relations even more.”
Lauralie: Congratulations. Are you taking part in Twitter Fashion Week as a model or designer? I’m doing quite well. Even though I was fired, I’m toxic free. If you know what I mean? Tyler hurt me and he’s making himself look like a victim. *rolls eyes* Whatever, I don’t want to talk about him anymore.
Jac: Designer my love. It’ll be my second showing. So I’m super excited. Fired?! What the hell happened?
Lauralie: Good luck, chéri! I don’t know. Maybe I’m too expensive for him.
Jac: Oh god! You crack me up! Well at least you’ll see him at Joshuaa’s thing in a few days so hopefully you guys will be able to repair and move on.
Lauralie: What Joushaa’s thing?
Jac: Oh wait what? You weren’t invited to the tea party?
Lauralie: First of all tea party? more like Chifir’ party. *smirks*
“At this point in time Lauralie is on a bit of an island. She doesn’t have the best relationship with the other women and I feel for her. I’d hate to be left out of something with my group of friends.”
Jac: *laughs* You are wild girl! We’re only 3 quarters through our first glass of wine. I can’t wait to see what comes out of your mouth after a bottle.
Lauralie: I don’t have anything against him. Seriously. It’s not my fault that his friends talks about him.
Jac: What else has he said about us?
Lauralie: He was mostly talking about Nina, and Joshua. But I’m not going to repeat it again, because the messenger always gets shot. However… He said that Nina is a trollop and Joshua shouldn’t drink right after drink his DUI.
Jac: A Trollop? *grabs phone* Siri what does Trollop mean? Oh I’m shocked! Miss Lauralie Miss Lauralie!! What in the world will I do with you! *laughs*
Lauralie: Cheers, chéri!
The scene ends with the ladies still chatting as the camera zooms out and we get a view of the exterior of the bar.
A Few Days Later…
We hear upbeat music in the background as we see aerial footage panning from the heart of Twitter to a beautiful country cottage on the outskirts of the city. We zoom in on Joshuaa who can be seen chatting with a friend of his who is credited as the owner of the home. We then transition outside of the home where we see Jerika, Tyler, Stephanie and Nina exit a limo and make their way into Joshuaa’s long awaited tea party.
“There’s nothing like tea time in the sun, dressing up with some bitches! So imma throw this tea party! I even invited Jac, so some things are changing!”
Joshuaa: Hello ladies! Come on in and let’s spill the tea!
Tyler: This place is stunning.
Nina: *hugs Joshuaa* Girrrl is this your mans cottage away from the city?
Joshuaa:*laughs* You know it Nina girl! Just kidding its my friends place.
As the ladies pour themselves some tea and plate some finger sandwiches, Jerika informs the women that her divorce settlement has been finalized and that she walked away with everything she wanted and then some.
Jerika: I’m now the owner and CEO of Twitter Magazine!! I bought the company out from my husband!
Stephanie: Check Mate!
Tyler: Oh, yay!! That’s fabulous honey! Cheers to that!
Jerika: Thank you! All you ladies have been so supportive the last few months and I don’t know what I would have done without you.
Joshuaa: Ladies If were on announcements I’d like to make a quick one if I may? I just wanted to let you all know that one of the shows I was a part of was nominated for a Golden Globe!
“Feels like we are playing a round of Hot Potato. Everybody has announcements should I announce that I am a pending lesbian.” *laughs*
The ladies congratulate Joshuaa on his achievement before the conversation turns to the whereabouts of Jac. The camera pans over to Joshuaa and Nina.
Joshuaa: *turns to Nina* phew anyway darling where’s Jac? I invited her.
Jerika: I haven’t seen her since we went to go see Lauralie.
Tyler: I don’t believe I’ve seen her since Aspen.
Joshuaa: *yells* Ladies I didn’t invite Lauralie in case anyone was wondering.
Nina: Well Jac and Lauralie have become close as of lately.
Joshuaa: Oh really?… Well maybe I shouldn’t of extended an invitation then.
Tyler: Speaking of Lauralie her and I’s relationship is not good at the moment.
Nina: What’s going on with you guys Ty?
Tyler: After she accused me of smoking marijuana and stuff, I was livid.
Nina: *laughs* No she didn’t!
Tyler: She said I was smoking marijuana and said how could I do that as a mother and businesswoman.
Jerika: Tyler, when she said it to us she did not say you were just smoking marijuana. She tried to say you were on DRUGS!
Tyler: Well Jerika, with me she pulled out a marijuana joint and said why would you smoke this in my house.
Jerika: Also, SHE said that you *looks at Tyler* have spoken badly about everyone here… I don’t believe her, but that’s what she said. *sips tea*
Tyler: Well I can tell you that isn’t the case I’ve only seen her once or twice.
Jerika: Is this girl lying about everything? The way she tells these stories was so convincing.
Nina: This is just too messy…
Suddenly we hear dramatic music as we transition outside the house where we see a blacked-out Cadillac SUV driving down the road approaching Joshuaa’s friends country house. The car stops in front of the house as the camera pans around the stationary car and stopping at the car door. We then see a pair of black Christian Louboutin heels touch the ground. The unidentified woman begins to approach the front door as the camera pans up the black flowy dress to reveal Jac!
Stephanie: Tyler you called her a “Bestie” though. That’s a strong term to use for somebody you just reduced down to the help.
Jac: *slowly walks in* Hello ladies!!!
Jerika: I’m just saying, why is she making these stories up and telling them in such a convincing way? She is a pathological LIAR!
Tyler: Oh, hi Jac honey.
Joshuaa: Hello Jac. Take a seat.
Nina: Bitch are you coming from a funeral
“I have no clue what I’ve walked into. I’m hearing pathological liar. I’m hearing bestie. I’m hearing these bitches scream. I’m hearing these bitches shout. I know I’m late but Jesus.” *laughs*
Jac: *laughs* Sorry girlie I had a little business meeting in downtown earlier. Given all the shouting I’m assuming we’re talking about Lauralie.
Nina: Girl you met with her tell us if she spilled any tea about us?
Joshuaa: Oh really? Where at?
Nina: I told the group you and Lauralie are becoming besties… *sips tea*
Jac: I actually have seen her a couple of times since Aspen. The first with Jerika where I stormed out of her house and the second the other day.
Joshuaa: And? Is she still crazy?
Jac: *laughs* I think she knows she’s rubbed you girls the wrong way, but I think she feels equally hurt by a few of you.
Stephanie: Equally hurt…*rolls eyes* She called Tyler a druggie.
Jac: That’s why I stormed out of her house the other day. The second her and Jerika started talking that crap was the second I got up and walked out…
Tyler: Thank you Jac darling. I appreciate that.
Jerika: Wait, HOLD ON *slams tea on table*
Nina: Jerika are you talking about us again?!?
Jerika: I was NOT talking crap, I was LISTENING to what she had to say!
Jac: Are you serious Jerika?
Tyler: Oh wow. *slides chair back* That tea won’t be spilled on my dress…
Jac: You weren’t saying Tyler was talking about how Joshuaa is still a drunk?
Tyler: Oh my god!
Jerika: That wasn’t talking crap. That’s the TRUTH!
Stephanie: *shakes head* Just wow.
Tyler: Yeah right! All those times I hang out with you Jerika? Oh, wait I don’t.
Jerika: Tyler, are you SERIOUSLY going to sit there and say that you NEVER told me that Joshuaa’s marriage is fake and he isn’t sober?
Joshuaa: Wait wait wait wait. What?
Tyler: I never said that. You’re a liar. I haven’t even had time for my friends like Steph, Jac, Joshuaa, and Nina. Why the fuck would I make time for you?
Nina: Jerika you’re going too far!
Tyler: You’re such a fucking liar Jerika!
Joshuaa: Who is lying here?
Jac: I didn’t expect this to happen.
Tyler: Joshuaa we have been friends for 3 years. I stood beside you at your wedding. Why would I say these things?
Nina: *stands up and points at Jerika* You slut pig!
Joshuaa: *pulls Jerikas chair up* Over here right now! *points to door*
Jac: *gets in between* Please! Enough!
Joshuaa: I want to know the truth!
As the women continue to go back and forth, Joshuaa begins to cry whilst Jerika smashes her tea cup and screams that all the women will see the truth. Nina, who has been standing and watching the back and forth, finally snaps and throws a plate and several glasses onto the table yelling profanities at Jerika.
Jerika then storms out of Joshuaa’s friends house and pushes the camera out of her way. Meanwhile, Jac is sat back in her seat with her hand covering her mouth whilst Tyler runs off to the bathroom balling. Nina and Stephanie running after Tyler to see if he is okay Joshuaa is set off once again. Yelling that he thinks its horrific that the women are comforting Tyler and not him. As Joshuaa falls into hysterics we see Tyler, Steph and Nina leave whilst Jac is hugging Joshuaa. The camera then zooms in on the shattered glass that has been left on the table.
The Following Night…
Tyler and Stephanie are shown standing by the bar chit chatting with one another as they await Jac’s arrival. The camera screen then switches to the exterior of the bar and we Jac getting dropped off by Tom, she gives him a kiss and exits the vehicle and makes her way into the bar and straight to the ladies.
Tyler: Jac! You look stunning *air kisses* I’m so glad you could meet us!
Jac: Hi lovely! How are you? I haven’t had the chance to reach out to you after everything that happened the other day
Stephanie: Hey babe looking flawless!
Tyler: I’m alright Jac. It’s a little upsetting what happened the other day, but I’m trying to focus on the positive in my life right now. Business is amazing, I have good friends that do support me, you two included, and my family is amazing. There is so much good in my life I’m just trying to focus on that.
Stephanie: Focus on the positive Tyler. How are things with you Jac?
Jac: Look things have been crazy right now. Between opening up a new nightclub with Tom and my investors pulling out of Jac by Jac Carter weeks before Twitter Fashion Week it’s been stressful!
Tyler: What darling? You lost investors? What happen?
Jac: Yes! I think they had over committed in terms of the amount of finances they were willing to invest and now they’ve left me in a lurch. Especially given that Tom and I have sunk over 30 million dollars into the new Ibiza nightclub.
Tyler: I just started turning a complete profit that goes solely to the business and my family. I paid Adam back for the initial start up and now everything I earn goes to the company, employees, and I. I’m proud, but I’m sorry to hear you’re struggling. How much more do you have for Twitter Fashion Week?
“Y’all see Tyler making this about him.” *laughs*
Jac: I’ve got the location for the fashion show and about 2/3 of the garments ready. So I don’t know what I’m going to do right now… *begins to tear up*
“I’ve never been in a circumstance like this before. Every busy venture I have partaken in has been successful and its shattering to know that this may not happen for me.”
Tyler: No no no. Don’t cry honey. *goes over to hug Jac* I don’t want to see you cry. You’re amazing dahhling!
Stephanie: Jac how much money are you needing?
Jac explains the ins and outs of her needs and the 5 million she needs to just complete and show at Twitter Fashion Week. Stephanie has a look on her face as she gazes over to Tyler who is looking right back at her as though they’re both thinking the same thing and all they see are the dollar signs above Jac’s head.
Tyler: Well darling I have a suggestion if you’re willing to hear it, of course… Design by Tyler is doing well and the bills are all paid for TFW. I would be willing to be your investor in Jac by Jac Carter. I can write a check for 15 million for a stake in the company and you retain creative control, staffing decisions, and such. But the work is on you, of course. You are still responsible for all of the designing and so on if you’re willing.
Jac: Tyler are you serious?
Tyler: If you are interested. *sips wine* But you have to understand that I’ll be wearing my friend hat and an investor hat, but not at the same time. I don’t want this to ruin our amazing friendship at the same time.
Jac: Oh my god! This could really help take my brand to the next level!!!
Stephanie: I’ll volunteer to handle the paperwork part of it all you need to do Jac is on the dotted line sweetie! *smiles*
“They say that business and friendship shouldn’t go together. Jesus, please tell me I didn’t just make a mistake.” *does the Roman Catholic Hail Mary*
Tyler: Cheers to us, the haters and the liars just want to be as successful as the three of us! *lifts glass and laughs*
