Dj told her sister what was going on was wrong , but made Stephanie swear to keep this event a sister secret, because she feared Kimmy would not be allowed over again. Before Stephanie left she told Dj that this scared her re-enforcing Dj to think about the consequences of drinking. Although Dj's father did wake up to the loud noise Kimmy was making he didn't know that she was drunk, because Dj lied and covered for Kimmy.
