Full detailed profile on Simon Frasier Played by Paul Leyden on As the World Turns Daytime Soap Opera.
Simon asks the bellhop where he got the note that was delivered to his room that appears to be from Vienna. He offers the bellhop money to tell him who gave him the note, and the bellhop tells him that he can't, the note was left at the desk.
Simon meets Carly and finds her still fighting with Katie. Simon tells Katie that he understands why she is mad at him, but she needs to leave Carly out of it! A bookstore worker comes out and asks Katie to sign some more books, and she leaves. Carly and Simon talk about Katie's leading questions, but once again agree she knows nothing about the jewel theft. When Carly leaves, Simon approaches Katie one more time and tells her to leave them alone. While they are talking Vienna looks on from the distance!
At Simon's place, he and Carly dress. She refuses to put on the necklace again as she feels people are going to become suspicious. He's confident that they'll get away clean this time, and says, "The best place for this is in plain sight! He puts the necklace around her neck and they leave to go shopping. Carly is uncomfortable, feeling that everyone's eyes on her rock, but Simon comforts her, thinking they're all staring because she's beautiful. They're interrupted by Lisa, who has a copy of Oakdale Confidential on her person. She's irate, and starts yelling at the two that they won't get away with this! She warns, "Wait until the police find out about this!" Simon and Carly are in shock, scared stiff until she bursts out into laughter! She is in the middle of reading the book and is just messing with them, she explains. They compose themselves as she tells Carly, "I do have to hand it to you for wearing that rock around your neck!" Lisa moves on and Simon asks her to take it in stride the next time someone makes a crack about the book! She agrees, and they kiss with a promise to meet later.
Carly worries about what Katie wrote in her book. Simon assures her Katie made the jewel theft up. Carly worries that if Jack reads the book he'll arrest them, throw them in jail, and she'll lose her kids. Simon re-assures her it's just fiction, but she still worries that Jack will believe it and follow-up. Simon says even if he does follow-up there's no proof, but Carly wonders if Katie has proof. Simon says she can't have proof if she made it all up. He tells Carly if the cops come after them he'll protect her. He reminds her that he promised her she wouldn't get hurt.
Carly answers the door; it's Jack. Simon leaves, kissing Carly goodbye on his way out. Carly looks worried as Jack walks over, picks up Katie's book, then opens it. Carly grabs the book from his hands telling him he doesn't really want to read the "trash" and "gossip" she wrote. She goes on to say because Katie wanted revenge, she wrote things about she and Simon that were untrue. Jack asks to look at the book.
"Why?" Carly inquires.
"Anything you're trying this hard to hide I want to read," Jack replies.
Carly gives in handing him the book. "Don't say I didn't warn you," she says. "You're warning me?" Carly confirms, saying everything Katie wrote was because she was jealous. Jack changes his mind; he gives the book back saying he'll pass.
Later, Jack admires her necklace, reminding her that Simon is a jewel thief! Before he leaves, he says, "Don't worry about the book. If there's anything in there I need to know I'll find it."
At the book signing, Katie informs Mike that he doesn't want the book and lays it aside. She goes on to say how much she regrets what she done, but she can't change things. She says she wrote what she did to get even with Simon. Mike informs her that he left because of her, not Simon. He says he's tired of being shafted, and orders her not to talk about him, or write about him. Again, she reminds him she wrote what she did to hurt Simon. He says the book is gossip! She corrects him saying, "No, most of it is true."
Later, she tells him she wants him, not Simon. "Prove it," he says. "How, I'll do anything?" Katie replies. He recommends she prove to herself that she can have a future without Simon -- get him out of her life! With hope in her eyes, she asks, "And if I can do that, I can hope that you'll come back to me?"
Before Mike can answer, Simon walks up apologizing for interrupting saying he really needs to have a word with Katie. "Help yourself," Mike says.
After Mike leaves, Simon confronts Katie saying she has to stop blaming him, because she was there too. "You told the whole world I'm a jewel thief," he says. "You are a jewel thief," she retorts. She admits she saw him put the necklace around Carly's neck at Lakeview. He asks her if that's when she got the idea to make them thieves in her book. Instead of answering, Katie demands he leave or she says she'll call security!
Simon excitedly greets Carly.He tells her the necklace he gave her looks good, and she asks “What if someone finds out this is one of the diamonds we stole from Vienna?” Simon assures her no one is going to find out. As they are talking the doorbell rings, and Carly opens the door and find Lucinda there. Lucinda tells them, “Thanks to Katie, all of us in this town know more then we ever wanted to know about the two of you” When Carly asks Lucinda what Katie wrote about them Lucinda tells them Katie gets dumped by Simon for “A conniving sl*t!” Angered Carly tells her “My children are in school, this is going to be horrible for them!” Lucinda tells them that the book is really a good thing for them, it's a best seller, and is great PR for them. After she leaves Carly tells Simon “We have to read this book, now!”
Katie tells Henry that she feels bad about Oakdale Confidential. She wrote the new pages in a moment of anger, and regrets the decision to publish them. When Henry suggests that the book could potentially be a big flop, Katie gets an idea and goes to the bookstore nearby, asking to purchase all of the copies they have available. The bookstore employee recognizes her as the author and tells her she can have as many copies as she wants, they have plenty more boxes in the back. Katie tells her nevermind and walks away. Katie asks Henry, who's life she didn't mess up with this book. As she finishes her sentence two women run up, excited to meet Katie, who's life in the book is an inspiration to them. Henry organizes an impromptu book signing, and Katie signs book for a line of eager fans. When Katie takes a break, Carly and Simon stop by the bookstore and confront Katie about the book. Henry suggests Carly and Simon read the book before they fight with Katie so they can have an informed discussion. The two leave, and Katie excitedly goes back to signing books. Later after Henry leaves she is handed a book and when she asks who to make it out to Mike's voice says "To my Ex"
