Tonight’s episode of Raising Asia begins with Asia’s dad sitting down with Asia’s manager Billy for a meeting. Shawn hasn’t been happy with her management lately and her career cutting in to their family time. Her manager reassures him that he has a contract with his wife. Shawn lectures him that “no one messes with his family.” Shawn threatens him with replacing him, and tells him that there are more managers out there. Billy thinks that now that he has made Asia a success, Shawn suddenly wants to be more involved.
Kristie is at home trying to get Asia ready for the Reality TV Awards. He demand to know why Kristie didn’t tell him that she signed a contract with Billy. Kristie argues that she has to sign things and take care of things while he isn’t around. She sends Asia upstairs to put on her outfit, but Asia complains that it is too small. Kristie throws a fit and says that she isn’t filming any more of the show until Asia puts the outfit on. Shawn heads up to the bathroom and convinces Asia to stretch the dance outfit out and get it on. He comes downstairs and lectures Kristie that she needs to relax and reminds her that the cameras are still rolling, just because she says she isn’t filming doesn’t mean that they will turn them off.
It’s one day until the Reality TV Awards, and Asia and Kristie meet with Billy their manager to prepare. Asia will be presenting an award on stage, and Billy has her practice reading the speech she was given to announce the nominees. Afterwards, Asia leaves so that Kristie can talk to Billy 1-on-1. He lets her know that he had a confrontation with Shawn. Kristie doesn’t want to lose him as a manager so she reassures him that she will “smoother things out with Shawn.”
It’s the day of the Reality TV Awards. Kristie heads to the awards show where Asia will be performing with Billy and Asia’s choreographer Anthony. They are shocked when they arrive and realize they were misinformed and the stage that Asia is supposed to dance on isn’t half as big as they were told it would be. Kristie throws a fit and insists that her daughter won’t be dancing on that tiny stage because she could get hurt.
Anthony convinces Kristie to let Asia perform, and changes her dance to accommodate the tiny stage. The big night finally arrives, and Shawn heads backstage to give Kristie and Asia a pep talk. Asia takes the stage and pulls off her performance and speech without a hitch. Afterwards Shawn heads backstage to congratulate her. Kristie agrees to let Asia go “party with Anthony” before they go home.
