Hey, let's go to Aspen.

- To ski?

- - No, to shop.

Oh, god, can it just

be the two of us?

Oh, please,

I am so tired of Melanie.

That dress...

It's like a hot dog

with a belt on it.

You are so mean.

Mrs. Stella?

Miss Stella?

I'm afraid I have some bad news.

There's been an accident.

You did great today.

You call me if

you need anything.

Mrs. Stella?

What do you want us

to do with all the food?

- How much is left?

- Half.

I thought more

people would come.

Um, take it for yourself,

give it to the staff.

Not the alcohol!

Um, throw the rest away.

Maybe I could give it

to the church instead?

Give it to the church,

that sounds good,

I don't know what

I was thinking.

You're mourning.


Mrs. Stella!

- Mrs. Stella!

- Leave me alone!

Mr. Ciocca is here,

from the bank.

Give me a minute.

What does he want?

I'm just the maid.

Stella, again, my deepest

condolences to you.

Thank you, Doug.

Was good of you

to come yesterday.

Oh, of course.

So, did you forget something?

No, no, um...

This is really hard to say.

Uh, and forgive me for

the timing of this,

but, in about 90 days, you're

gonna lose everything here.


You all have been in

trouble for a very long time

and JT did not have

the heart to tell you.

The horse market took

a downturn in '08,

JT refused to sellout,

so he leveraged the ranch

for you guys to survive.

This is my ranch, my family's

ranch, I didn't sign anything.

Come on, Stella,

you knew the deal,

you marry JT and he

takes care of you.

That's what your father

wanted and that's why

he signed the

estate over to him.

Plain and simple, you owe the

bank just north of, $6 million.

$6 million!

All money borrowed against

the ranch to keep it afloat.

But in 90 days, the probate process

is going to catch up with you

and the bank's gonna want

this house to cover the debt.

Six million...

What about monarch, what about

monarch and his stud fees?

Breeders are a very informed bunch,

they know what's going on here,

they're just gonna wait

until there's a fire sale

and try and get him for cheap.

Whistler painted a portrait

of my great-grandmother,

she built this place.

- I'm not an art dealer.

- No, but it's worth $2 million.

If I showed you the appraisal with a

promise to sell, would that help?

$2 million would definitely feed the

wolves, yes, for sure, it would.


No, no!

Oh, my god!

Oh, my god!

No, no!

What did you do?!

What did you do?

What did you do?!

This is 10 karats, how much time

does that buy me?

Not enough, honey.

I'm sorry.

Can I help you with

anything, miss Stella?

No, I'm okay.

My grandma used to make me

brush horses every night.

That was my job

around the ranch.

Do you mind?

No, ma'am.

I'm sorry about Mr. JT.

Now, we're competing on

Tuesdays and Thursdays.

All right, you know what,

Susan needs some extra

time on the court.

I'll pay for it,

just make it happen.


Thank you.

Oh, Stella, this is

Patrick, my new coach.

- Nice to meet you.

- You, too.

Oh, honey, I am

so glad you called.

Did you get the

casserole I sent over?

I did, yeah, thank you.

I haven't really been able

to, you know, eat much.

Well, that's

probably for the best.

You know, good idea

to stay thin now

more than ever, right?


This was really difficult

for me to come here today.

Aw, my door is always open.


JT messed up.

If I don't figure something out,

the bank is gonna take

the ranch in three months.

Honey, no, it can't be that bad.

I need to borrow $100,000.

Another hundred? For what?
