With her newfound notoriety, twenty-something Jo is a woman on a mission as she lives her life at lightening speed, always exuding her signature confidence and sex appeal. After breaking off their engagement last season, Jo attempts to work things out with Slade Smiley, her on-again-off again love interest. Recently, Jo came to the realization that she could and would not be the happy homemaker Slade so desperately wanted. She wants to bust out of the protected gates of the Orange County community and is drawn to the bright lights of Los Angeles. Jo is still vibrant and young, and partying harder than ever at the Playboy mansion and trendy L.A. hotspots. She is trying to pursue several newfound passions including a possible career in the entertainment business. Slade is trying his best to keep up and stay involved in her fast-paced life. Slade is also coming to grips with his own issues, and this season this dedicated father and self-made man will make serious life changes that will take him in dramatic new directions.
