Chanel tells her mother she found a way to support herself just like she told her to. Her husband is a wealthy man. Paulina doesn’t care how much money he has, she will make sure Xander pays for corrupting her daughter. Xander chortles realizing how little Paulina knows about her daughter. He asks for privacy so he can get on with his honeymoon with his wife, Michelle. Chanel corrects him. Paulina refuses to give her blessing and races out with Eli.
