But if it keeps Spirro from killing you, it’s worth it.” Carly then steps out of the bathroom looking like Grace Kelly. Carly explains that the prince is obsessed with Grace Kelly. Simon tells Carly that in order for the scheme to work, Vienna has to believe he’s alone so she has to keep her eyes off of him.

Dusty worries that Craig is coming after Johnny so he sends Johnny and Chaz upstairs. Emily promises to keep an eye on Craig. Just as she says this Craig walks up behind her and says, “Emily? You look tense. Is there a problem?” Dusty and Emily think fast and make up a story about Lucinda needing an extra press kit for one of the reporters.
