Power! Sex! Money! Fame!
The new Hollywood
wives are back with a vengeance. Whatever they don't have,
they want -- and whatever these women want, they get.
Unlike their counterparts in the '80s, who were
happy to give charity dinners and exclusive parties to
further their husbands' careers, today's Hollywood wives are
hungry to create their own identities. These ladies are into
achieving everything their famous husbands have and more,
and will stop at nothing for a chance in the spotlight.
Ambitious, young, smart, and lethal, the new
Hollywood wives are into yoga, fasting, spinning, Pilates,
their own production companies, and making things happen.
In Hollywood Wives -- The New Generation, you
Lissa Roman, mega movie and
singing star -- a forty-year-old platinum blonde with
attitude. Lissa is at the top of her game, until she begins
to suspect that Gregg, her decade-younger fourth husband, is
Nicci Stone, Lissa's wild,
nineteen-year-old daughter. Nicci is engaged to hot
filmmaker Evan Richter, but Nicci has a dilemma: Does she
love Evan, or is Evan's bad boy brother and partner, Brian,
really the man she wants?
Taylor Singer, a
sometime actress and would-be producer. She's married to
Lawrence J. Singer, a fifty-year-old Oscar-winning genius.
Taylor, a sexy, thirty-six-year-old beauty,
craves the power and respect given her famous husband, but
how can she get it? Certainly not by sleeping with Oliver
Rock -- a twenty-two-year-old perpetually stoned
screenwriter. So against her husband's wishes, Taylor
accepts a role in a lesbian-themed cable movie.
Stella Rossiter, a smart-mouthed blonde and producing
partner with her successful husband, Seth -- who just
happens to be thirty years older than she. Together they
make hit movies, while a surrogate mother -- recipient of
her eggs and his sperm -- waits to give birth
to their twins.
Michael Scorsinni, handsome
with a dangerous edge. He's a former New York City cop (last
seen in Hollywood Kids) who now runs a private
detective agency in Los Angeles. A man who has his own
demons from which to escape.
Intruding on the
privileged lives of this select group is...
Vernon, a psychopath from out of town -- a man with
kidnapping on his mind.
And his intended victim is
not just anybody.
Hollywood Wives -- The New
Generation explores the secrets of the women in today's
Hollywood: their loves, their passions, their affairs, and
most of all, their ruthless ambitions.
Jackie Collins views Hollywood and its inhabitants with an
insider's eye. And like the original Hollywood Wives
-- a number-one New York Times bestseller and highly
rated ABC miniseries, starring Anthony Hopkins and Candice
Bergen -- the new breed will shock and surprise, amuse and
startle, and take the reader on a trip not soon forgotten.
Hollywood Wives -- The New Generation
promises marital mayhem for the new millennium.
