Convinced she is in love with Alex, Laurita decides to leave Lorenzo. She however changes her mind after her attorney reminds her of a prenuptial agreement which would leave her penniless if she files for divorce.
Laurita schemes to make Lorenzo file for a divorce, by making sure he falls in love with another woman – Sylvia, his personal assistant.
