Do you have to always think of the BM's feelings?

I thought this could be a fun debate topic. I was watching the movie Stepmom; do you remember the scene where Julia Robert's character (the SM) wanted to take the daughter to a rock concert, Susan Sarandon (the BM) said no because it was a school night, and then ended up surprising the daughter with the tickets? I think that when it comes to doing special things with the SKs it can be a little tricky when you don't want to step on the BMs toes. On the other hand, should the SM even worry about the BM's feelings and just do what she feels is right to keep a good relationship going with the SKs? In this case, it was pretty underhanded of the BM, but think it's one of those times you just have to keep your mouth shut.
Some other situations that came to mind were:
Getting your daughter's ears pierced?
Going to a father/daughter dance (from either the BD or SD's POV)?
Going on a mani/pedi girls' day out?
And.. just so the boys aren't left out - taking them to their first pro sports game?
I'm sure their our tons of other scenarios, feel free to add your own.
