Birdee Pruitt is a Chicago housewife who is invited onto the fictitious Toni Post talk show under the pretense of a free makeover. The makeover she is given is hardly what she has in mind...as she is ambushed with the revelation that her husband Bill has been having an affair behind her back and wants a divorce so he can be with his mistress Connie, who also happens to be her best friend. Humiliated on national television, Birdee and her daughter Bernice move back to Birdee's hometown of Smithville, Texas with Birdee's eccentric mother Ramona to try and make a fresh start.
