Description

There are starter jobs, starter cars, starter houses. And then there are starter wives...When her husband dumps her (by cell phone) just months before their ten-year wedding anniversary, Gracie Pollock is left reeling. Though her role as the wife of a semifamous studio executive often left her cold, Gracie had grown accustomed to the unique privileges extended to Tinseltown's elite. Gracie really believed that she and Kenny were different from other Hollywood couples. She never thought she'd be a starter wife. But now that her marriage is over, she's a social pariah and things go from bad to worse when she learns - via her florist - that her husband has upgraded: Kenny is dating a famous blonde pop starlet. Gracie seeks refuge at her best friend's Malibu mansion for some much needed divorce therapy, but soon she's associating with all the wrong people including the security guard, Kenny's boss - one of Hollywood's better known Lotharios - and a mysterious hunk who saves her from drowning. But who is he?show more
