Once upon a time, there was a girl

named Tessa who had a dream.

This is a story about her reality.

Better hurry, Tessa.

The wicked wltch just arrived.

Tessa! Tessa!

It's all right. I've got this.

Thanks, Joe.

Hey, maybe she gets nicer on vacation.

Holy crappola, Tessa!

You've scuffed my favorite bag!

I'm sorry, Divine.

Uh, this is a lot to carry.

Well, we're all pitching in, Tessa.

- I'll bring the cart. Sir, can I...

- Uh-uh. Uh-uh.

No! No way am I tipping those vultures.

No! No!

Oh. Oh. Oh.

Be extra careful of Sparkles.

Who's a good dog? Who's a good dog?

- Divine?

- What? Yes?

He's dead.

Not in my heart, Tessa.

Mom! The VIP Princess Package

Includes a costume party,

and Reed West is performing.

Let me see!

Olympia, must you...

Even better, we get our own private

1-minute Reed West encounter.

We're in it for a lot more than 7 minutes,

Athena. We're here to win.

Okay, I'll be there in a minute.

Oh, a pool! Athena, you need to put

on your bikini and sit by that pool.

- Okay.

- Not you, Olympia.

Oh, my God!

These girls look like pros.

They don't have superstar's blood

coursing through their veins.

Remember, girls,

you're Madonna's third cousins.

Twice removed.

It's not a lot of blood.

Blood is blood.

If I were 10 years younger,

I'd snag that role myself.


Janet's here.

Her parents sent her

to music camp In New York.

See you ladies at the VIP lunch.

Can't wait!

Oh, Bianca's here, too.



I almost didn't recognize you

with your new face.

Would like the number?

They do lipo as well.

I've forgotten

how dreadfully witty you are.

So we're really excited about this week,

right, Blanca?

Bianca? Sweetheart? Darling?

Bianca. Sweetheart.

Yeah, I'm so excited.

She's a bit of a slug, isn't she?

No, she's been rehearsing.

You've only brought one assistant.

So brave.

Oh, I'm not her assistant.

I'm her stepdaughter.

- Uh, Tessa?

- Yeah?

Could you please go get Sparkles?

- Get Sparkles!

- Yes, right away, Divine.

Thank you.

She's a bit sensitive

about her position In life.

Well, it's been fascinating,

but now I'm bored.

- Tessa, we're on the move!

- Right away!

Oh, Reed! I would sell body parts for you.

Good ones.

Argh, gross! Stop drooling, Olympia.


He's definitely worth a kidney.

He looks taken. Who's the girl?

Argh. Harper Halston.

The heiress.

She's so pretty.

Her family owns Royal Lagoons Resorts.

They're holding the audition contest.

You'd know all this if you weren't so busy

greasing up carburetors or whatever.

- You mean my job.

- Not this week, Tessa.

You're here to help Athena and Olympia

focus on one thing.

Dazzling Reed and winning the lead role.

One of you girls is going

to star in the musical,

win that recording contract,

and do me proud.

I named you after goddesses for a reason.

What's the musical?

- Cinderella.

- Cinderella.

Okay, that's kind of ironic.

You, follow me.

Yes, ma'am.

You are going to love

your little room.

- It's right this way.

- Okay, all right.

This is like having your own spa.

Right through here.

Here we go.

Nice and cozy under the stairs.

So I'm Harry Potter.


Now, um, be careful of the gate

because it locks from the outside,

and don't tell anyone you're here, okay?

Oh, I'm gonna get

Into so much trouble for this.

Don't worry.

It's not exactly something I'll instagram.



Olympia, stop that!

That's disgusting. Stop It!

Oh, my God! What are you doing?

Stop it! Don't eat that.

Don't you dare put that In your mouth!

I cannot believe

you humiliate me this way.

Oh, dear.


Hello. Hello.

- Not really ready, yeah.

- I think you have this In the bag.

I've never seen

such a dull group of girls.

You remember Janet?

- Oh, yes. Jane. Hello.

- It's Janet.

Oh, you dropped...



- Whoops.

- Whoops.

- Tessa. Tessa. Ah!

- Ow!




- Oh, thank you so much.

- Lovely.

She's just a little slow,

but, you know, she smells good,

so we keep her around.

Well, she's learning.

You're so bad!

Hello! Hello! Welcome, VIPs!

You know, by the looks of this crowd,

you'd think VIP stands

for very beautiful person.

I guess then It'd be VBP, but...

Uh, thank you!

Welcome, everyone!

I'm Freddy Marks, the director,

and you all know pop sensation Reed West.

Hi. It's lovely to be here.

I discovered Reed on YouTube,

and now I'm hoping to find a brand new

star right here In this very room.

Harper sang a romantic duet with Reed.

Will you be next?

Now, auditions will be held

tomorrow morning,

and the show will premiere on

the very last night of your VIP stay.

So this is gonna be a fast-paced,

exciting adventure

for all those who make the cast,

especially one very lucky young lady.

And the best part,

if our Cinderella impresses

the Slick Tracks record execs,

she'll be signed on the spot.

Yeah, how about that?

All right, so good luck, everybody,

and we?! see you all In the morning.

- Thank you.

- Cheers.

Earth to Tessa.

Oh. Mom, help. Help!

Mom, I'm drowning.

I'm drowning.

- Oh!

- Help.

Sorry. Give me one second.

Grab this.

She's so funny when she's drowning.

R's so great.

Gently, Tessa.

Can you do my face?

Am I getting it all?

Hmm, yeah, just...

I think you missed a spot just right...

- There?

- Yeah, right there.

- Is that it?

- Oh, yeah.
