Marion Zane is the top Trophy—she has it all: a faithful
husband, loyal fellow-Trophy girlfriends, queen-bee status
over the Hollywood "name-above-the-title" charities,
and—best of all—no prenup!
She knows inside
information is king, smiles hide jealousy, jackals lure
husbands away (or, worse, steal personal assistants),
housekeepers have the power to destroy, and that
everyone has devastating secrets—including her! It's
why she refuses to gossip yet remembers everything.
So why is she so nervous?
because, after years of unchallenged social position, Marion
forgets that in L.A., even enemies embrace—especially ones
disguised as girlfriends. When she impulsively champions
building a much-needed trauma center hospital downtown,
Marion breaks the unwritten code by stepping on another
Trophy's charity turf. It's a fatal mistake.
furious and jealously bitter "girlfriend" joins forces with
a powerful mystery partner to destroy Marion. Drugged and
framed as unfaithful and insane, she loses her dream life in
one lurid, unforgivable humiliation.
her husband, her deepest secrets exposed, Marion is left
shattered and literally penniless in paradise. Determined to
build the hospital and regain her love, lifestyle, and
dermatologist, Marion goes to hilarious lengths to hide her
newfound poverty from even her closest friends, living out
of her luxury car and using Magic Marker for eyeliner as she
raises hospital funding at five-star restaurants.
Fortunately, Marion's loyal, lusty Trophy girlfriends
discover her condition through her overwhelmed maid and come
to her rescue, employing ferocious manipulation skills,
ridiculous logic, and much-needed dermabrasion. Redirecting
the same competitive hyperdrive that won the rocks on their
fingers, the girls make Marion their new project even as
they deal with their own crises.
Still, all the
Trophy support in the world might not be able to stop Marion
from betraying one of them; then her mystery enemy is
revealed and she's given the choice of re-enthronement or
vilification. After all, she's a survivor and didn't become
Marion Zane by fair play alone.
