Emma’s on the brink
Consumed with jealousy over Xander’s association with Zoe, Emma lashes out – but gets a stern warning herself!
Falling in love with Xander Avant has been a dream come true for Emma Barber, bar one enormous obstacle: Zoe Buckingham, the British vamp who’s descended on the LA fashion scene determined to rekindle their past. Polar opposites, Emma’s demure while Zoe’s shameless in pursuit of Xander. In fact, she’s long niggled at Emma’s psyche as they battle for his affections.
Zoe’s (Kiara Barnes) status as a lead model for Forrester Creations continues upsetting Emma (Nia Sioux), well aware her near-naked nemesis is throwing herself at Xander (Adain Bradley)! She’s also exploiting Emma’s refusal to have sex with him to her advantage. The fact that Xander and Zoe are now modelling underwear side by side intensi es Emma’s heartache as she eyes the pair preparing for their rst Intimates photo shoot. Her bitterness ares as she sees Zoe helping Xander perfect his modelling shapes for the cameras.
Unable to contain her temper any longer, Emma confronts her boyfriend for playing up to Zoe – whom he should know not to trust! Even worse, she can see that Xander enjoys hanging out with Zoe... instead of banishing her back to England like he promised weeks ago. With Emma’s anger rising, Zoe cunningly eavesdrops on the fraught conversation, pleased to see her on the brink of rage!
After the deadlock is broken and Emma leaves, Zoe further gnaws away at Xander’s frustrations, sympathetically pointing out he’s being treated unfairly. It’s just not right that Emma is sabotaging his career advancement before it’s even properly started. At least he has her, Zoe coos, trying to calm Xander down.
Meanwhile, a stressed Emma is in a desperate bind trying to diffuse the situation, and con des her problems to her friend Tiffany. Listening to Emma’s diatribe, Tiffany’s immediately worried and offers her sage advice, along with a warning not to let history repeat itself! What does it mean? Could Tiffany be referring to a past love affair that went wrong for Emma... or does Emma have a murky history of losing control and becoming a bit of a handful when she’s threatened? TVS
LOVE RIVAL Emma (Nia Sioux) may not be as demure as she appears...
