Lucky for Katy, she has the support of her longtime boyfriend, KO Kelly, who has his own dream of becoming a professional boxer and a surprise Katy wasn't expecting.

After a long day, the group of friends, including 'It' girl Pepper, all meet at their favorite hangout, Molly's Crisis, to watch Jorge perform as his alter ego, Ginger, and to see Katy's latest fashion creation.
