Three years after Quillsville, Indiana mayor Nicole Pence implemented a ban on newsanchormen, causing more people in Fort Wayne/Port Melissa, Lima, Dayton, Cincinnati, to cross state lines to watch news in Toledo/Detropolis; Detropolis mayor Laura Emerson decides to implement a ban on news anchormen on TV (unlike Quillsville, Detropolis allows male-female anchoring at 6:00 and 11:00 PM and/or on weekends). As the ban is implemented, Brandi finds herself legally separated from her local Tv news anchorman, despite her mother being the chief meteorologist at CBS 10, and sets a poor example for Tessanne, Maggie, Alexandra, Chereice, and Telissa when Brandi blantanly disregards the law by crossing state lines and using Lina as a anchorman mule to satisfy her own desires. In stark contrast, Deanna embraces the ban after Tabby and Shushu informed Deanna that they hired a tiger (Benjamin), a dog (Bridget Souza) and a cat (Olivia Souza) to finish the job in Ohio.
