Very enjoyable movie,real life intrigue,backstabbing & deceit.
7 July 2002 | by (Milwaukee,Wis.) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie very much. Heather Locklear played the part of Melody Shepherd who was a beautiful (on the outside) but a nasty conniving deceitful bleep on the inside. Her endeavors to take over the position held by Tess O'Brien (played by Barbara Eden) as lead reporter in Washington are only temporarily successful. In the process she temporarily deceives Tess'es agent, son and supervisors .Tess'es boyfriend and her mother cannot be fooled however. Fortunately Tess catches her in the treachery acts once too often and leaves her blowing in the wind with no way out.Barbara Eden and Heather Locklear both play their parts extremely well.
