Tina’s hotel room, night: Tina is on the phone. After a few rings, the answering machine engages.
Bette’s voice – This is Bette Porter. Please leave your message after the beep and I’ll return your call as soon as possible.

Tina – Baby, please … why won’t you call me back? We need to talk … with clear heads … please …
She hangs up the phone and sighs.
Tina’s hotel bedroom, night: Tina is in bed crying, looking at Bette’s picture on her computer when the phone rings. She is startled and sighs, picking up the phone.
Tina – Hello?
Alice – What the hell happened?!
Tina – Al …?
Her voice cracks.
Alice – What the fuck happened, Tee?
Tina – A disaster …
Alice – I just took her home. She is a mess!
The producer sobs.
Alice – Oh fuck! You are a mess too? What the hell did she do?!
Tina – She got very upset … fucking lost her mind … I fucking lost my mind …
Alice – Why?! Talk to her, for fuck’s sake!
Tina – She won’t answer my calls …
Tears run down her face.
Alice – Then you’d better come over here tomorrow and fix this!
Tina – I can’t! Fucking Wendy is watching me like a hawk!
Alice – Who is fucking Wendy?
Tina – Wendy Taylor.
Alice – The actress?! What the hell does Wendy Taylor have to do with this?
Tina – Bette didn’t tell you?
Alice – No! She didn’t fucking tell me anything!
She raises her eyebrows.
Alice – Oh shit! Don’t tell me that Bette fucked Wendy Taylor!
Tina – Noooo, no … they just kissed …
Alice – Fuck, Bette! I’m going to strangle her!
Tina – Noooo … it was before us!
Alice – Then what the hell happened, Tee?!
Tina – It is all my fault. I fucked up! She saw me leaving …
Alice – You fucked Wendy Taylor?! I’m going to kill you, Tee!!
Tina – Goodness, nooo! Noooo!
Alice – Tell me! Take a deep breath and tell me what the fuck happened!
Tina sighs, wiping her tears away.
Tina – I’ll tell you …
