As are the two young models, Taryn Blake, who has been modelling since she could walk and has a svengali for a mother,Julia, who sees her more as a meal ticket than as a daughter, and knows that the day is coming near when all of her daughters payments will go directly to her, and Laurie Caswell, the innocent, who doesn't really want to do it but is being pestered by Racine who sees her as the next hot commodity. Also thrown into the mix are Laurie's parents Dinah and Michael who are at odds over Laurie's modelling. Also added is Harper World Wide, whose perfume company uses Racine's models for their ads.

Models, the Mob and Mayhem
15 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a hoot of a show. And yes, too bad it only lasted for 13 episodes including the 2-hour pilot. It certainly showed a lot of promise. It was also disconcerting that it ended so abruptly with plot lines that were never resolved including a stalker, an impending takeover and the missing at sea (current) Mrs. Grant Harper. Fun cast too with Mimi Rogers, Lauren Hutton, the young Terri Farrel and Nicolette Sheridan, and of course the seemingly ageless Ms. Fairchild. The quips and barbs were fast and loose. The clothes were mind numbingly awful(With the exception of the pieces showed by Mr. Michael Volbracht). And all the shenanigans too fun. One particular favorite line of mine on this show was delivered by scion Wesley (played by the late Dack Rambo): Ah, the Harper family dinner - forks on the left, knives in the back. back
