Quirky, clumsy and eager-to-please Karly has more than her fair share of bad luck.
We first meet our 29-year-old accountant in her loud (the fire alarm is going off) and smoky (she's trying to cook) kitchen. During the chaos, Karly is dumped because of misunderstandings over a divorce lawyer she didn't hire and an affair she didn't have. This comes just weeks after performing a very efficient audit on a company...that wasn't actually a client.
Single and unemployed, Karly continues tripping through life, both metaphorically and physically. She thinks her luck may be turning when she meets the perfect man but in true-to-Karly form, manages to scare him off. And he isn't just "not return her phone calls" scared but more "sprinting away across the parking lot screaming like a banshee" scared.
Just as she thinks it can't get any worse, it inevitably does. Is Karly destined to leave a life of loneliness and poverty or does fate have something else in mind?
A Trophy Wife's Fall from Grace
Thirty-six-year old trophy wife Desiree has everything anyone would want in life—bucket loads of money, a successful husband, the envy of all her peers…did we mention bucket loads of money? But then tragedy strikes. It takes a while for her to get it through her well-coiffed head when her husband tells her they’ll have to declare bankruptcy if they can’t sell their mansion or his business.
Understand, yes. Accept, no.
After giving him instructions to "go fix it," she goes to the spa with her country club girlfriends. There she brainstorms what to do about this inconvenient turn of events. Not out loud, of course, because the only thing worse than actually being broke is other people knowing about it. Isn’t it?
