Seen this?

Don't Hate, Emulate.

I tell you, these housewives,

they're like a gold mine.

Harpy, I've been in

this business a long time.

That novel is not the game

changer that you need.

What am I going to do?

You know what you need to do.

Oh. Stan, no.


I will not.

Harper, it is the time and now.

Lance Sullivan.

Your friend, Lance Sullivan.

One of the most popular,

scandal-free athletes of all time.

He's heroic, he's charismatic.

And he's retiring.

I know.


You get him to commit to you

being the author of his bio,

you're gonna get an advance like that!

A big advance.

Stan, things haven't been the

same between Lance and me

since I first wrote

Unfinished Business.

And besides, I don't even know

if biography is my thing.

F*ck your thing!

This is a check!

Exploit your friend

for capital gain!

This is America!

Merry Christmas!

Hi. This is Robyn.

Leave me a message!


Diversity? Michael, are you

even watching the network?

What do you think

I'm fighting for 24/7?

Listen, I don't care

who you call.

You can call Jesse,

you can call Barack,

you can call Jesus Christ.

But I'm gonna

tell you right now,

that it just doesn't work

for our programming.

Thank you, Michael.



Hate to be on the other side

of that phone call.

Well, you know your people.

So the hermit emerges.

To what do I owe the pleasure?

Hey, what's happening, girl?

How are you?

Good to see you.

Gosh, you too.

You look great.

So do you.


I was just in the neighborhood,

strategizing with my peeps.

Ah. The latest Harper

Stewart masterpiece.

So when's the debut?

In due time. In due time.

Well, you better hurry up,

because your fans are waiting.

It's been like, what,

three years now?

No, it's been like two.
