Tonight’s episode of Being Asia begins at the dance studio, Asia and Kristie arrive for rehearsal and Shawn decides to tag along. While Asia is stretching, Shawn and Anthony step outside to talk. Anthony explains to Shawn that Kristie needs to relax and do his job. Shawn sends Asia out of the studio to get a drink, and he and Anthony have an intervention and tell Kristie she needs to take a break. Kristie gladly leaves the studio and goes to plan Bella’s birthday party.

While Asia is rehearsing she hurts her knee on the floor. Kristie hears and rushes back inside, she tells Asia that since she hurt her knee she can’t go to her sister’s birthday party at the skate rink. Asia begins arguing and Shawn drags he rout of the studio and tells her she can’t go to the skating rink because all she has to do is fall once and her career will be down the toilet. Asia cries that it is hard to be a big sister when she is never allowed to do anything with her little sister. Shawn comforts her and hugs her, before sending her back in to rehearsal.

Bella’s 6th birthday arrives, and Kristie informs her mom she wants to make sure it is all about Bella. They are going to take a pink limo to get manicures and then they are all going skating as a family. Since it is Bella’s special day, Kristie even lets her wear silver shoes with gold on her dress. First she has a special birthday breakfast with her family. Bella announces that she doesn’t want Asia to come with them to get manicures and pedicures.

Kristie receives a phone call from a choreographer named Ricky, he is putting together a choreography piece and set up a photo shoot for Asia to be the face of all of his ads and posters. The only thing is they are going to have to leave Bella’s birthday party early to make it to the photo shoot on time.

Kristie, Nana, and Kristie’s sister and Asia and Bella all climb in to the hot pink limo and head to get their manicures. They arrive at the salon and while they are getting their nails done, Kristie decides to break the news to everyone that she and Asia are going to leave the birthday party early for their photo shoot. Bella argues that it is her special day and her mom can’t leave early.

They head home and Kristie tells Shawn that Asia has a photo shoot. Shawn argues that they can’t miss birthdays, that’s where he draws the line, and sometimes when they get offered a gig Kristie has to say “no.” Kristie argues that Asia really wants to do it, but Shawn doesn’t want to hear it.

They head to Bella’s birthday party at the skating rink, and Shawn caved and is letting Kristie and Bella leave early. The whole family heads out on the rink to skate, and Asia stands on the sidelines and watches them all. Afterwards they head outside and surprise Bella with a hot pink toy car she can ride in. After seeing how happy the girls are, Kristie decides to cancel the photo shoot and spend time with the family.

The next day, Kristie and Asia head to rehearsal with Anthony, he has an idea for her next show where she will ride in on a cube at Planet Hollywood. Kristie is excited about the show, but she knows that they have a lot more work to do.
