Summary
Molly Kagan is your archetypal "Hollywood wife," who for ten years enjoyed the perks and privileges of being married to powerful studio executive Kenny Kagan. Kenny decides to dump Molly for a much-younger pop singer named Shoshanna. Adding insult to injury, Kenny informs Molly that their marriage was through via cell-phone. Having carefully timed the breakup to coincide with the expiration of the couple's pre-nuptual agreement, Kenny is able to escape without providing Molly with a huge monetary settlement. Molly is now "persona non grata" in her Brentwood community, with many old doors being literally closed in her face, and such fair-weather friends as Cricket and Joan conspicuously unavailable. Vowing to start life anew for the sake of herself and her teenaged daughter, Molly relocated to Malibu. There is she finds a new best friend in the form of airheaded Malibu gate guard Lavender Caraway. She also enters into a tempestuous relationships with aging, moody movie producer Lou Manahan and handsome but untrustworthy beachcomber Sam
