Paris stunned B&B

In the studio, Flo asks Shauna if she had an affair with Carter. Paris interrupts to say, “Of course she did.” Flo brands this as ridiculous — her mother tells her everything. “Right, mom?” Flo asks again, “Tell me you didn’t sleep with Carter.” Shauna gawps and stammers, “Carter and I were… intimate.” Flo can’t believe she didn’t tell her. Shauna assures Paris she has absolutely nothing to worry about. “Not from me.” Paris is happy to hear she won’t be a problem for Zoe and Carter and hopes she means it. They clarify that Shauna wasn’t with Carter when he was with Zoe, and then Shauna excuses herself.
