      Episode 1
      Ronnie learns that Bryce is cheating on her again, but can't find it in her heart to leave him. Leo breaks more bad news that Ronnie's body is not what it used to be and is no longer suitable for appearing on the company packaging. Ronnie's halfhearted attempt to get in shape fails, so, as a last resort, young female models are brought in so she can select the body she'd least mind seeing her head pasted on top of. After a tabloid story about Bryce sleeping around hits the papers, reporters stake out Veronica's Closet trying to get a scoop on Ronnie's and Bryce's rocky romance. Unwilling to act on Olive's and Pat's advice to get even with Bryce by having affairs of her own, Ronnie instead sets up a faux romantic dinner for her and her husband to fool the press into believing the two are still happily married. But the discovery that Bryce slept with the model who's soon to be her body double finally puts Ronnie over the edge and gives her the courage to come clean and walk out on him.moreless
    • Veronica's Woman Friend
      Perry writes a press release with a made-up word in it, because he can't think of a synonym for "increase." Josh is bothered when Ronnie believes Perry's new word is real, but he completely loses it after the word spreads throughout the media. Her impending divorce aside, Ronnie returns to her roots as the 'Queen of Romance' by helping Leo propose to his girlfriend, Tina. Ronnie needs help of her own from Olive after she begins to miss Bryce. Olive tells Ronnie now that Bryce is gone, she has more time to spend with her women friends, but Ronnie's comment that she doesn't have any women friends upsets Olive as much as Perry's gibberish words have been upsetting Josh. Leo picks a less-than-opportune time to propose - he asks Tina to marry him while she's in the middle of an orgasm. Ronnie realizes her friendship with Olive is lacking due to faults on both of their parts; Ronnie is self-absorbed and Olive doesn't like to share things about herself. When Ronnie tries to make things up to Olive because she wants to have a woman friend, Olive invites her over to her place after work to get to know each other better. Tina accepts Leo's hand in marriage after he asks her again while they're not doing it.moreless

After Ronnie turns away the press in regards to their trial separation, Bryce goes on national television and milks sympathy like there's no tomorrow. Ronnie has a change of mind after USA Today conducts a poll where 73% of the country was gullible enough to want her to take Bryce back, and she schedules an interview with Entertainment Tonight to tell her side of the story. Perry feels Ronnie should beat Bryce at his own game and cry a few crocodile tears for the press so the public sympathy vote will tilt in her favor. She can't cry during the interview, though, making Ronnie believe she is over Bryce. Olive weasels a private office bathroom out of Ronnie, but it's not very private after the builder knocks out the waterline to the main restrooms, forcing everyone on the floor to use Olive's executive washroom.moreless
