(Comic Canon only) Harley and Ivy realized Tawny Young was at the wedding, too, and millions saw what went down between Ivy and Kite Man. Young called it the biggest wedding disaster of the decade. Ivy threw the remote into the TV and broke it. While Young reported live from the Old Gotham Corn Factory about the arrest of Black Manta, Livewire, Killer Frost, and Nightfall, Batman stomped Man Bat and drop kicked Killer Croc in the background. Firefighters liberated Commissioner Gordon from his entangled squad car hanging off the Harley Quinn Highway. Young was live on the scene. Gordon was tended to by paramedics but she shoved a paramedic aside and grilled him about his plan to capture all the supervillains at the wedding when he already had Harley. She even deduced the plan wasn't his in the first place. Gordon grabbed her microphone and issued a statement of his own, he vowed to bring Harley Quinn to justice and stated her days were numbered. Several days later, Tawny reported about a new villain named Mephitic in Detroit calling out Poison Ivy. She stated Gotham stood in solidarity with Detroit and hoped its protectors could stop him before he tainted the water supply.

Tawny Young sent her son JT and daughter Reign to Bludhaven and Detroit to keep tabs on Harley and Ivy. In the aftermath of Harley and Ivy's battle with Mephitic, Young sent anonymous texts to Gordon claiming to know what Harley's location was and instructed him to get in a car that would take him to Bludhaven airport for a flight that departs in one hour then more instructions would be sent when he landed. Gordon asked who the person was. The person claimed to be concerned for Gotham's future. Before Ivy and Harley could leave Mephitic's warehouse, a car pulled up. Commissioner Gordon popped out of the passenger side and ordered them to stop right there. Tawny Young came out and asked them how it felt to defeat a villain just before he destroyed a city like they did back in Gotham. Harley noticed JT from Blud Garden with a camera and Ivy recognized Reign. JT apologized and revealed Tawny Young was their mother and boss.

Before Gordon could arrest them, Livewire fired an electric bolt at his feet from the roof. While he was blinded, they escaped. Young reported Gordon once again blundered. He glared but was speechless. On the road again, Ivy surmised Gordon wouldn't be following them anytime soon after he got humiliated on live television again. Harley admired Tawny Young for pulling it off so effortlessly. The ratings for the special coverage were through the roof and she got the greenlight for a brand-new show named Tawny Talks geared to only villain and hero gossip and interviews. Frank the Plant was hired to co-host with her for a few episodes. Vixen, Elle, Harley and Ivy were brought out to the stage first. Vixen and Elle's history was discussed first then their history with Harley and Ivy. Tawny Young then addressed Harley and Ivy's heroics at the Ocelot but Harley stipulated they were not heroes but got excited about the prospect of an antihero-for-hire business. Frank yelled at her to sit down or he was going to be fired by association.

Batgirl was called up next but Frank was unimpressed by her entrance by grapnel. Young inquired where she and the Macaroni came from but they were interrupted by the Calculator. Clayface and his teenage daughter Annie were next. Young went over how Clayface forgot about his daughter for a year and she survive on her own thanks to his so-called Vegas benders. Young brought up it wasn't the first time he neglected a child and brought out a special surprise guest, the Arm. Arm took offense to King Shark calling them accidents. Annie launched Arm and he punched King then she turned into a monstrous clay form, angry over not being cared about. She threw Clayface into the set background while Arm yanked on King's tongue. Young called for security and told the crew to cut the cameras. Young warned the audience and viewers the next segment would be triggering to those who went through sexual assault and posted the National Sexual Assault Hotline. Doctor Psycho, Herman, and Giganta were brought out. She chided Frank for being ableist over Psycho's name and then reminded the audience about the family's previous visit on her previous show.

Psycho tried to apologize but Giganta called him out and stormed off. Psycho ordered Herman to come back and stated he could erase the damage so they could be a happy family again. Herman declared he could never manipulate his mother again and hung him back up on a ceiling light. Young ordered her crew to bring him down. Frank noted she had that messy Jessie Jonesman spirit. At the end of the episode, Young brought all the guests out and thanked them for spilling their tea then suggested therapy. Psycho did not believe any of them were on his level and declared he was no sidekick unlike Clayface, whom he described with profanity. Annie took offense. Another fight broke out. Young believed Tawny Talks was going to be a hit and she would get five seasons at least. After Jazzapajizza, Young reported on Harley Quinn's quick thinking saving Gotham City and wondered how things would work out between Gotham's favorite couple. Tawny Young interviewed Austin Pike about the fire that destroyed his house and the costumed arsonist he encountered.

Black Mask and the False Face Society invaded City Hall and forced Joker to text Tawny Young so he could hold a live mayoral address declaring Black Mask was the new crime boss in charge. He managed to send the same text to Harley Quinn without being caught. Young learned from witnesses outside that Mayor Joker was wearing a vest made out of dynamite. She interviewed a young girl named Tiffany. A man named Ira Colter interrupted her, grabbed the mike, and quickly told Young that two men kicked in the mayor's door. Young and her crew made it inside just as Joker started his address but the Bat-Family arrived and drove out Black Mask.
