Loni Anderson plays a rich girl who loves to play tennis, eat expensive meals, shop, & spend, spend, spend. If I remember correctly, her two comedic godfathers come to live with her in her plush mansion. All of the sudden having money is something they are NOT used to...& that is were the laughs come in. The show was really cute on the lines of the Beverly Hillbillies meets Down & Out in Beverly Hills...ratings were not in line due to stiff competition(s) on the same night and even though it was switched to another night, it was too late. I doubt that this one will make it into TVLAND or somewhere like that, but if it does, try & watch about two or three episodes & you will get the idea of what the whole thing was about. Z. 1-10 (6)
