Two college sweethearts are living a happy, rather ordinary life in New York but there's a slight twist - she's the breadwinner, supporting her musician boyfriend. Until the tables are turned when he's discovered by a Sony exec and their worlds are turned upside down.
Soon they are holidaying in the Hamptons, adorning the cover of Vanity Fair and attending every glitzy party in town - all the while his career is reaching new, dizzying heights.
But the trappings of this elite lifestyle mean our heroine must face the wrath of the US press. Scorned for having a less-than-perfectly-honed LA body and brutalised for being 'ordinary' things couldn't get any worse Then news erupts that her best friend, who's been her confidante through these months of misery, has sold her innermost secrets to the press and her life spirals out of control.
She finds solace in a secret support group: The Civilian Ex-Wives and Girlfriends of Celebrities Group - a place to gossip, lubricated with lashings of shared experiences and strong cocktails. As this sassy group write the wrongs of their past relationships, our heroine must decide if she's going to sink or swim.
