She asks if it is because Josie can’t get enough Cabot or does she simply want to do another duet. Josie recalls when she and Alex played Xandra her demo, and she said it wasn’t good enough. That weighed heavily on Josie. But now, she realizes that Alexandra’s comments had nothing to do with her talent. Those were merely the words of a bitter ex-girlfriend. Before leaving, Josie tells Alexandra that she’s a good singer, even if her stepfather doesn’t think so. Alexandra returns and asks Guy if Katy is bothering him, to which Guy replies that she was just leaving.[5]

Katy sees her and KO outside of her hotel smiling at each other. Later on, Alexandra apologizes to Alexander for leaking the story about them dating in high school.

However, if "Kiss of the Spider Woman" makes it to Broadway, she wants to replace Josie as Spider Woman.

Dating KO

Katy asks Xandra to give her the dress

Katy tracks Xandra down and arrives just in time for KO’s photoshoot. Katy tells Xandra that she knows that they’re dating, and she’s happy for them.

Embarrassed by his remark, he leaves. Xandra sympathizes with Josie. Too many times has her stepfather denigrated her. She tells Josie that his opinion isn’t a reflection of Josie’s talent.

Xandra, Katy, Josie, Pepper, Didi, KO, Alex, Raj, Bernardo, and Chad gather around the stage as Jorge proposes a toast in Pepper’s honor, who has dedicated herself to building a safe haven for artists of all stripes.

KO and Xandra at Pepper's party

Xandra, Katy, Jorge, Josie, Pepper, Didi, KO, Alex, Raj, Bernardo, and Chad listen to Ms. Freesia tell stories of her past. Katy asks how they have never heard about her aunt before. Pepper replies that it is because Freesia isn’t actually her aunt. However, she has known Pepper since she was a little girl. Ms. Freesia reveals that Pepper and her father lived in her building, but he was always away on business. Most days, Freesia would find Pepper all by herself, doing her homework in the lobby of the Georgia Hotel. And one day, Ms. Freesia invited her up for tea, and they’ve been like family ever since. Katy and Jorge recall Pepper telling them that she grew up in London. Pepper claims that she did live in London up until a certain age. She spent time in London and New York. Ms. Freesia then tells Chad about Jorge’s musical that Pepper produced. She missed it but promises to cheer them on during opening night on Broadway.

KO takes Katy’s side, telling Xandra that she had plenty of dresses to choose from. Xandra grows upset that KO is more concerned with Katy’s dreams than he is her feelings. Katy interjects that while KO and Xandra have only been dating for ten minutes, she and KO were together for ten years. And they supported each other’s dreams while Xandra is trying to change everything about him to suit herself. Xandra tells Katy to consider that she may no longer know what KO likes and doesn’t like. If Katy fought for KO half as hard as she is fighting Xandra, they’d still be together. Xandra leaves, and on her way out, tells KO to find his own way home.

Katy finds Xandra as she is cleaning herself off in the bathroom and apologizes. Katy admits that she still feels something for KO and seeing him happy with someone else is difficult to comprehend. Xandra can relate as that’s how she felt seeing Alex with Josie. Admittedly, she may have taken things too far with KO, but Xandra doesn’t want him to be a different person. She simply thinks that he’s capable of more. Xandra then accepts Katy’s apology.[8]

Physical Appearance

Alexandra is a stylish young woman, with dark skin, brown eyes, and black hair that has a single white streak. Her outfits are usually very fashionable business attires.


Alexandra is a cold and ambitious businesswoman, who thinks that relaunching the Cabot Record Label is a waste of money. Xandra is very competitive with her stepbrother Alexander, whom she used to date in High School. Alexandra is also very jealous of Josie McCoy which she expresses in her taunting and sabotaging the aspiring singer.


Alexander Cabot

Xandra and Alex

Xandra and Alex are lovers turned step-siblings. They met in high school and dated briefly before their parents got married, thus making them step-siblings. Alex has long since moved on, but Xandra continued to pursue him, which is the basis for her disdain towards Josie and any other romantic interest of Alex. Despite the fact that he no longer wishes to be with her, continues to care for him. Even helping him during his relapses as a recovering alcoholic.

Josie McCoy

Xandra and Josie

Xandra dislikes Josie given her relationship with Alex, as she still harbors feelings for him. This results in a back and forth battle between the two, often instigated by Xandra. Their first encounter was at Cabot studio, where Alex played the board one of Josie's songs. Though, she admits that Josie has a nice voice, she didn't wish to re-launch the record division behind Josie as her talent wasn't "undeniable." From there, Xandra continued her pursuit to derail Josie by buying Chubby's Record Shop, thus making Josie her employee. Her biggest move against Josie was arguably stealing her song and Josie and the Pussycats, and re-branding the group as Xandra and the Kitty Cats.

KO Kelly

KO and Xandra

Shortly after his breakup with Katy, Xandra hired KO as her security, and they eventually began dating. The relationship didn't last long as KO decided to move to Philly after accepting an offer to train at Joe Frazier's gym. During their brief stint, Xandra supported KO and provided him with great opportunists, such as modeling. However, in the end, she realized that he would always love Katy and come to her defense.
