Lauren became proficient in the language of stilettos and Starbucks before moving to Departures magazine, where she wrote word reviews by day and took writing classes at night.
Meanwhile, Emmy, courtesy of her new job scouting restaurant locations, embarks on her erotic adventures, while Adriana nabs a slightly dorky big-time Hollywood director she struggles to remain faithful to.
