press photoshoot with the Moreros. When Cheryl discovers in a magazine, that Cor invited the paparazzi in their house, allowing them to do an extravagant photoshoot with Remy and Cor, she is enraged. She drags Martin to Cor's appartment, and confronts her with it. She screams at Cor for unknowingly letting people in their house, and blaming her for messing up Remy's chance for a "normal" life. Cor, in turn, taunts her for being a hypocrite, and is especially blown away by the thought of Cheryl for having a greedy motive. Cheryl then forces Martin to take a break from Cor, which Cor feels highly betrayed for. In the end of the first episode, Cor sets aside her pride and apologizes to Cheryl. When Cheryl feels threatened by Martin's new personal agent, Ilona, she makes an appeal to Cor.
