Burbank, CA (August 24, 2009) � In "We Are Family," David arranges for a parenting magazine writer to spend the day with him and Ruby in hopes that a story featuring the happy father-daughter duo would draw crowds at his shows. During his interview, Ruby is touched when David recalls the first time he laid eyes on her mom. When she realizes he made the story up, Ruby teaches her dad a lesson about trust and love by introducing her friends to the writer as David's "other" kids. Although he's embarrassed, David apologizes and makes amends with Ruby. Meanwhile, Jordan and Ben conduct a covert DNA test on Ruby and David, but fearing he'd miss having her around if she wasn't David's daughter, Jordan dumps the kit in the trash.
