Needs and Looks that Kill What�s Real and What�s Not

Inside one of the nation�s most affluent gated communities, four women, who look like they�re ready for a cover shoot, and their families reside in multi-million dollar homes, enjoying a larger-than-life lifestyle. In contrast to these four, one woman has had to move outside the lavish enclave and into an �itty-bitty� townhouse.

Inside one of the nation�s most affluent gated communities, four women, who look like they�re ready for a cover shoot, and their families reside in multi-million dollar homes, enjoying a larger-than-life lifestyle. In contrast to these four, one woman has had to move outside the lavish enclave and into an �itty-bitty� townhouse.

The show is mainly set in Coto de Caza, where 85 percent of the women have had breast implants; where a broken Mercedes window button has been immediately replaced with a brand-spanking new BMW; and where a rabbit shooting spree might ruin an engagement.

Jo, is engaged to a father with children from a previous marriage. She�s not quite ready to be a mother yet, or married for that matter. At the age of twenty-four, she likes to drink and party, and this becomes a bone of contention between her and her thirty-something year old husband, Slade.

Vicki, a self-made insurance tycoon. She boasts about how much she tries to keep herself fit, and even describes herself as a MILF, though none of her son�s friends seem to think so. In contrast to her slacker son, her daughter is quite self-sufficient.

Lauri, a single mom trying to cope with a ruinous divorce. Her eldest son is actually a delinquent who smokes and drinks in school, and for that reason sent to juvenile hall.

Jeana, is a mother of three and a former Playboy Playmate. Her mother-in-law and ex-major league pitcher husband, Matt, selected her for her genetics thinking she would give them a son who would also make it to the big league. That dream may be on shaky grounds when her eldest flunks out of his baseball team.

Kimberly, is a tennis-playing mother of two. She loves her family dearly, but has fears that her husband will dump her for a trophy wife, despite her agreeing to his request to get implants. Her other grave concern is the melanomas she keeps getting.

Created and produced by a Coto de Caza resident, this show challenges the conventional notion that people living in such glamorous gated communities are living out a picture perfect lifestyle with no problems whatsoever.
