Desperate to write a hit song, Tessa secretly used Mariah’s pilfered journal for inspiration. When she shared the piece with Devon, he was so impressed that he arranged for her to sing it on THE HILARY HOUR. Not surprisingly, Mariah recognized the words and publicly blasted Tessa! Afterwards, Devon and Noah quizzed the songbird about Mariah’s accusations, but Tessa doubled down, insisting they were her words! Mariah was upset that neither Devon nor Noah believed her and threatened to sue if Devon published the song. Later, Mariah pushed Tessa into confessing that she’d stolen the journal. When Noah refused to believe it — and asked his sister to drop the accusation because she was hurting Tessa’s career — Mariah gave him the journal to read. Afterwards, a furious Noah broke up with Tessa and refused to forgive his sister for coming on to his girlfriend! Meanwhile, Devon pulled the plug on the song — and on Tessa’s career! Yet he gave her a chance to redeem herself when he hired her for an administrative position at Hamilton-Winters. At Crimson Lights, Tessa approached Mariah to mend their relationship, but Mariah refused, accusing her ex-BFF of ruining what they once had between them!

Not surprisingly, Billy was less than enthusiastic about his sister’s new boss. Victoria was even more upset at her new office-mate, especially when she learned that Ashley would be running Brash & Sassy! Furious, Victoria decided to fly to Paris to check in with Abby. When she learned about Victoria’s trip, Ashley called her daughter to request her support as she put a plan into action!
