Dirt Now is about to launch, and Lucy needs a cover story. One possibility: an ailing Christian-pop star. Lucy suspects that drugs made her sick and dispatches Don (who's being shadowed by the ghost of Kira Klay) to get the dirt. Then there's a missing R&B star. One way to him could be Prince Tyrese. Meanwhile, Holt is courted by a major producer while Julia has a hard time back on the set of her sitcom. And Lucy's brother Leo, a decorator, is hired by an action star.
Dirt follows the exploits of Lucy Spiller, an executive editor at two tabloid magazines. Lucy possesses the power to manipulate the lives of celebrities through the articles she prints in the magazine.
