the show it was Nicholas, who was the son of a struggling single mother, that took a keen interest in the event. In May
1970, Nicholas graduated with honors from college and immediately returned to Timbercrest in hopes of landing a job
with King Fashion. Kenneth appreciated his excitement for the industry and hired Nicholas. It was in the summer of 1970

that she had made for the family and King Fashion. For her efforts Kenneth appointed Audrey as Creative Fashion
Director for the company. Audrey remained in that position for twelve years. In early 1993, Kenneth King revealed his
interest in retiring and wanted to turn the company over to Nicholas and Audrey in a 49%-51% split. However, before the
official papers were drawn up he suffered a massive stroke that took his life. Audrey who had been in Milan at the time
was distraught when she heard the news of her father's stroke. She rushed from Milan to be with him when he died, but
she would be to late. Kenneth died with Eleanor and Nicholas by his side. When Kenneth's will was read Eleanor

In 2002, Brandi gave birth to her son with Nicholas in Monte Carlo.
In 2004, Brandi's marriage to Nicholas hit a rough patch as Audrey began to make a play for her ex-husband. At Jodi
Bradshaw's wedding to Jaxson Hayes, Audrey revealed that she was able to walk and as a result planted a kiss on
Nicholas which was witnessed by Brandi. Following their impulsive kiss, Brandi filed for divorce from Nicholas and

significant purpose in his life. He is currently trying to locate this woman.
