Stephanie Harper has it all - beauty, riches and a loving husband. That is, until her husband falls in love with her best friend. In order to get her money he pushes her off a boat and into the waiting jaws of a crocodile. However, she survives the attack and, although horribly disfigured, spends months under the operating table to have her face restored to a different beauty. Now, she returns to the city under a different name and with a different face to seek vengeance on her husband, who has told everyone she was taken by a crocodile, and is now waiting the 7-year legal waiting period until he can gain her money and marry her best friend. Now, she can have revenge... Written by

We used to call these opulent '80s mini-series "trash wallows." Unfortunately, they don't make them like this anymore. And I don't think anybody ever equaled the gigantic trash wallow of Return to Eden.
First of all, it's Australian, with one gorgeous hunk after another - that in itself made it worth sitting through. Also it's an extreme makeover story before there were REAL extreme makeovers on reality TV. And this one's a doozie. Ugly, matronly, but loaded with cash, our heroine marries a hubba-hubba who, enamored with someone else (like five minutes after the wedding), throws his wife to the crocodiles. Maimed, she survives with the help of an old man and a handsome plastic surgeon who works wonders and falls for her in the bargain. She then becomes the toast of the modeling world and seeks her revenge.
It's really too good. I own it.
