Fox’s Star Returns!!
Fox’s new musical, drama series, “Star,” returns. On the second episode, this week brings another pair of real stars in guest spots: Naomi Campbell and Tyrese Gibson as a pastor.
This week is the girls need to record a demo to enter a contest and if they win the contest, they’ll get to perform in a music festival coming to Atlanta.
But to record the demo it, they need money, and the deadline is in two days. Once Star finds out who Alexandra’s father is, she feels betrayed and bamboozled. Alexandra should have informed them that her rock star dad was Roland Grant but she wants to make it on her own and not because she is the daughter of a famous musician.
Alexandra and Derek are definitely getting their freak on together. Alexandra tells Derek she ran away from her father and “a really bad situation,” and her mother’s dead. Derek’s mom is dead, too and so is his dad, a cop shot in the line of duty. They bond over having dead moms and he tells her she’s going to make him fall in love with her.
In the salon, Star tells Carlotta to work out whatever issue she has with Jahil, Carlotta doesn’t trust him and she is afraid of what he may do to the girls. Simone is the only person in the group who has real issues and is worried people will see them if they win the contest. She is causing these issues herself and she is swallowing pills and liquor at the same damn time. That is a no no, but she will soon realize that liquor and prescription pills don’t mix. Simone is just concerned her rapist foster father will come find her; she can feel he’s not dead.
Jahil is in his apartment doing lines of coke and complaining to his mother on the phone that $200,000 of his money has gone missing. Carlotta knocks at the door and he says, “Look, I’m in the middle of something.” Carlotta punches him square in the face and says, “Now is good!”
This is why you hire A-listers! She yells at him for letting the girls perform at his godson’s party, but he argues he has a “gut feeling” about them.
These two have a lot of history, somebody needs to tell these girls the truth about them and their mother. The show is okay, I love the music but it isn’t Empire. Carlotta says she’ll tell them how he got their mother Mary hooked on drugs, and Jahil counters and reminds her she had Star and Simone and lost them.
While Alexandra is dancing in the salon, her rich famous parents catch her dead in the act on the floor and demand she goes home with them. She refuses, her passion is music and she knows they have a group that can go all the way. Alexandra’s mother is an alcoholic and Alexandra has been taking care of her since she was a little girl and she is done.
When everyone in the shop, as well as Carlotta, Star and Simone learn that Roland Grant is Alexandra’s father, they all feel betrayed and so does Derek. He opened up to her and now he finds out she is a liar, he also felt betrayed.
Star tried to seduce Roland in his hotel, she was soaking in a bubble bath when his wife walks in and she was livid. She tells Star to get out of the tub immediately and she is so angry with her husband because she believes her had sex with a minor. He claims he didn’t but he is naked and Star is taking a bubble bath, yea okay.
Simone gets a chance to sing at the church and she has some vocals but she collapses after her song due to the liquor and the drugs. They rush her to the hospital and we pray all is good.
Alexandra threatened to leave the group because Star tried to sleep with her father for a record deal. When Alexandra finds out, she is more than angry and decides to quit the group. Needless to say, she didn’t leave she would rather deal with Star, Simone and Carlotta rather than her mother.
