Spoilers for FOX's 'Filthy Rich' Episode 3 'Pslam 25:3'
FOX's new drama 'Filthy Rich' has garnered quite a fan base thanks to its feisty characters and its thrilling plotline. The demise of a patriarch brings about many changes in the Monreaux family with Margaret Monreaux, (Kim Cattrall) puppeteering how her family will cope with the death of her husband, Eugene Monreaux (Gerald McRaney) and their father. Unfortunately, even though her husband had illegitimate children, Margaret hesitates to give her own son Eric Monreaux (Corey Cott) any responsibility in the company the family has built. Episode 3 saw a bit of change as the now matriarch allowed her son to lead the charity missions of the company, which he finds akin to being a 'slumlord'. But, that's not what could possibly disgrace his family.
Following in the footsteps of his father, Eric seems to have had a secret this entire time. His pregnant wife, Becky Monreaux (Olivia Macklin) thinks her husband works long hours in front of a laptop, while the truth is that he indulges himself on an adult website. Fans couldn't help but wonder what's in store for Eric as they called him out on his behavior knowing well the show is about to get more interesting.
In this episode, we find out the owner of the adult website Ginger Sweet (Melia Kreiling), one of Eugene Monreaux's (Gerald McRaney) illegitimate children finds out from her girls that many high-profile men in the New Orleans log into their website. Telling her girls to further record their calls with these men, Eric is officially trapped when he decides to hide his face no more, revealing it to the girl on the website he's been chatting with for a while now. "Ah, Eric’s married and his wife is pregnant and looks like he’s in love with a video sex solicitor #filthyrichfox S1E3," wrote one fan, with another feeling bad for the high-profile son tweeting, "Poor Eric, she's recording bro #FilthyRichFOX."

The family's reputation was already on the line when the world was let in on the fact that Eugene fathered three children outside of his marriage. What would happen if Eric's indulgences come to light? "Aw damn Eric. I can't believe I'm feeling bad for him right now. Whoo this is gonna be gooooood!! #FilthyRichFOX," wrote another fan. Of course, most like us, saw the irony of it all, as another fan tweeted, "Eric didn't need permission or cared about the family name when he started cheating on his wife. #FilthyRichFOX."

Turns out Cott is doing a great job portraying his character because fans seem to be invested in his part. "Eric seriously needs a backbone and to stop looking for approval from the pastor and Margaret #FilthyRichFOX," said one fan. Another sympathized with him adding, "Can understand why Eric goes on Sinwagon to talk to them, his wife is mean. @FilthyRichFOX #FilthyRichFOX #FilthyRich"
