Karen Cartwright has a dream similar to Ivy's, but she just wants to be the star. Thanks to Ivy's mishaps, Karen was cast as the understudy for Marilyn. Another bonus is that the star, Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman), is stuck in Cuba. As of now, Karen is Marilyn. Ellis books Rebecca the star role, so while she's away his job is on the line. Right now he's just the assistant to Eileen Rand, but he's working for the co-producer position. Ellis has got a lot of work on his hands!
When Ivy heard about Karen's understudy role, she didn't know how to handle things. Even Derek had a bad time coping with the news. He didn't treat Karen like he treated Ivy, he was extra hard on her. Karen embraced her inner Marilyn and wowed Derek as well as the rest of the producers. Just when she thinks everything has fallen into place, Rebecca makes a grand entrance.
