Paige Townsen struggles with how to tell her parents about getting the movie role in Famous in Love season 1 episode 2. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of the premiere.
Famous in Love season 1 episode 2 opens with Paige telling her roommates Jake Salt and Cassie Perkins how nervous she is to tell her parents. She explains that education means everything to them.

Nina talks to Tangey Turner and her manager Ida. They’re angry about viscious rumors about Tangey. Nina asks Tangey to come to a party and show that she’s still friends with Rainer.
