Gail was the girlfriend of Charles Clark, who relocated from Denver to Los Angeles to be closer to Charles. Their affair was discovered by Naomi Clark, who reported it to her mother, Tracy Clark. Tracy didn't believe the affair was serious since her husband had frequently had them.
She was confronted by Naomi shortly after she found out about the affair and learned that her father was moving with her into the family beach house. Later in the year, Naomi Clark was forced to move in with Charles and Gail after Sean Cavanaugh conned Tracy Clark out of a large sum of money, causing Tracy to move to New York.
Naomi and Gail clashed under one roof until Naomi moved into a hotel to get away from them.
