Megan (Joanna Garcia) has been compiling research on Laurel (Anne Archer) with the intention of presenting a book proposal to her, but Sage (Ashley Newbrough) discovers Megan's notes and emails them to Laurel before Megan has a chance to explain. Megan is pleasantly surprised to find that Laurel likes the idea of a biography, but when Laurel takes over the project and hires an experience ghostwriter, Megan feels dismissed. Continuing her research, Megan inadvertently discovers a shocking secret about Laurel's past. When Megan comes clean to Laurel about what she has learned, Laurel reacts by freezing Megan out. Meanwhile, Sage is sure her modeling career is about to kick into high gear when she meets with high-powered publicist Patricia Kingston (guest star Najimy), but Patricia makes it clear she is only interested in representing Sage if Rose (Lucy Kate Hale) is also involved. Tension mounts between the twins when Rose rejects modeling in favor of her school work. Charlie (Michael Cassidy) realizes that Mandy (guest star Alice Greczyn), the girl he has been casually dating, may be better suited for him than Megan ever was.
