Story of the character[edit | edit source]

Before the pilot[edit | edit source]

Hailey is well known to have done little with her life, leaving home at 17, squandering her trust fund & travelling around the world at the expense of her father, Caleb.

Season 1[edit | edit source]

Hailey arrives at Cohen's house, upsetting the quiet life of the family. As soon as she arrives, the first thing you do is organize a party at her elder sister house, putting his nephew Seth and her new nephew Ryan, in the middle. Hailey even closes them, in the pool house. Later, she begins a relationship with her childhood babysitter and her sister's one-time boyfriend, Jimmy Cooper.

Season 2[edit | edit source]

The second season began with Jimmy and Hailey trying to figure out their lives, and where their relationship would or could lead. With a lucrative job offer in the Tokyo fashion scene, Hailey accepted the position instead of staying with Jimmy. Soon after, Jimmy also left Newport, for Maui, leaving behind his daughter, Marissa.

At her father's funeral, Hailey briefly returned to visit, with her new career apparently having stabilized her formerly wild ways. A newly responsible Hailey aided in the intervention to combat her sister's alcoholism.
