Then she meets Eric and falls into his home and family life including a wife who has sort of agreed to an open marriage and adopted black daughter who has no one to show her how to do her hair.

The tabloids love it, but it’s causing international tensions so a truce is staged. But then it turns into a romance which could cause further international tension…
