Episode Summary

EDIT
Fatal Distraction
AIRED:
Khadijah hires a handsome and charming man named Xavier St. John as her new writer, without bothering to read his articles or check his references. Xavier constantly compliments Khadijah and seeks her attention, so her friends suggest that he is attracted to her. When Khadijah and Xavier share a cab, he seems to be coming on to her. Khadijah leans in to kiss him, but he pulls away and says that he is not interested. When Xavier turns in his first article, Khadijah is stunned to discover that he does not possess any writing ability. He claims that she is punishing him for rejecting her advances, and threatens to sue her for sexual harassment. Khadijah decides that the quality of her magazine should not suffer because of her error in judgment. She fires Xavier and dares him to sue her, noting that any judge who read his work would sentence him to remedial English class. Xavier announces that a suit wouldn't be worth the trouble. Overton discovers a box of 19th century love letters under the floor in Regine's room. Regine learns that she could receive 400 dollars for the letters, but Overton and Synclaire obey the man's wishes by burning the evidence of his forbidden love. Tag: Regine tries to replace the love letters.moreless
