When popular and beautiful cheerleader Stacey is stabbed to death, who could have done it? It could have been asocial Goth girl Monica, it could've been angst-ridden Jill - or maybe it was the plain girl nobody suspected.
A girl finds herself shamed in her small rural town after being raped by a football player. Her boyfriend, her mother and her lawyer all try their best to protect her, but will the local high school put a stop to the harassment?
Brian Austin Green,

Linda Kolkena Broderick:
[after Betty keeps taking snapshots of Linda behind Linda's back at Kate's high school graduation ceremony]
I'm going to make this quick. I don't want to ruin Kate's day, as you seem to be intent on doing, but if you point that thing at me again, you're going to be photographing the inside of your own throat! Got it?
[Betty snaps the camera again]
[chuckling, with mock sincerity]
It's always lovely to see ya!

Don't forget to note the other secretary is played by the wonderful Debra Jo Rupp. The film is based on the true story of Betty Broderick who shoots and kills her former husband and his pretty young bride in their bed. Stephen Collins is wonderful as the husband Dan Broderick. I forget who plays the second Mrs. Broderick. Meredith Baxter looks like she is having the time of her life playing a vengeful, spiteful, complicated woman. She should have nailed an Emmy for her performance. The oldest daughter is played by actress Kellie Williams. This film is often played on Lifetime television for women. Betty Broderick is still very much alive and causing trouble in prison. Just remember men, there are wives like Betty out there willing to go to prison rather than being taken for granted. Although Betty was getting paid $16,000 per month in alimony and lived in a beautiful home in San Diego, it's hard to feel sympathy for a woman who was pretty bought off.
