In the first-season finale, Paul's relationship with Tommy is threatened by a scandal; Devorah's trip to St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, hits a snag at customs; and a confrontation at a party brings Tinsley, Dabney and Dale closer together.
Tinsley checks the progress of her new handbag line at the factory; Paul becomes embroiled in a scandal; Dale conducts an investigation into the life of the German prince and his family; and one of the socialites is snubbed at the opera.
Tinsley goes to Paris for fashion week and meets her German prince, but the reunion turns out badly; Dabney and Alexandra throw Tinsley a party to cheer her up, but Tinsley's mom does something awkward that makes everyone uncomfortable; and Jules is rude to the hotel staff.
In the opener of a reality series following Manhattan socialite Tinsley Mortimer and her friends, Tinsley relocates to a midtown loft following the breakup of her marriage; her sister, Dabney, moves in with friend Jules Kirby; and Paul Johnson Calderon tries to get more trust-fund money. Also: an AIDS benefit after-party goes wrong, and the police arrive.
