It stars Debra Messing, and so far it has been funny and touching at the same time! I am hooked.

Overview:
If having it all in Hollywood means being married to an ambitious movie studio exec, having an adorable daughter, owning a flawlessly decorated McMansion in Brentwood, belonging to the most exclusive clubs and always getting the best table in the hottest restaurants, then Molly Kagan has it all.

Until she gets the one phone call that changes everything.

With that call, not only does Molly's husband Kenny inform her of his intentions to divorce just shy of their ten year anniversary (coincidentally before their pre-nup expires), but also he revokes her status as "Wife Of," instantly transforming her into a "Starter Wife"—a decided step down, if not out—in the Hollywood pecking order.

What fantastic smut! One of my neighbors is going to DVR the next episode, so a bunch of us can get together and enjoy it! Kids and sports- we have to plan out time just to watch. Rolling Eyes

Ruth, this is definitely my summer show! It came along just in time to help me recover from my "Ugly Betty" withdrawal. Very Happy

kyplantjunkie - smut indeed! Something silly and frivolous is just what I need in the summertime. Rolling Eyes

But have you noticed the subliminal adverts for Pond's products during the show? Sometimes it's quite blatant, like when they spend a few seconds just pointing the camera at her moisturizer sitting on the bathroom counter.

I know they're a sponsor, but it's a little wierd, and for me a turnoff. First of all, I just can't see a Hollywood wife using drugstore products...oh, right, she's an ex... Very Happy

LOL, Nadine! Even us "ex" wives don't necessarily use drugstore products! Sometimes it's not UNTIL we're ex's that we realize our true worth and splurge on the good stuff!!

OMG, Ruth, I did not mean it like that! Embarassed
I'm so embarrassed. I meant she's an ex-HOLLYWOOD wife, and therefore resorting to drugstore products. She doesn't know any better, cuz she doesn't hang out at EDS!

BTW, I am someone's ex, too. Wink And I totally agree, sometimes divorce allows you to shed the old baggage and "find" your best self. I can remember the last time I talked to my ex, I felt like time was standing still for him...he was calling me to whine about his second wife! Wink He got no sympathy from me, because he was just repeating the same mistakes he made with me!! I told him not to call me anymore.

I think that's why I like the show...even though I am remarried now, I feel so much empathy for the character! It doesn't matter if your married to someone rich, poor, or in-between, the angst is the same. I was married to a poor guy, LOL!!!
