After a messy divorce with her very rich and powerful husband, Nora Wilde refuses to accept his offer of $1.8 million and tries to make it on her own. Being a Pulitzer nominated photographer, the only place that even considers hiring her is a sleazy tabloid named "The Comet". She is forced to accept their offer and starts working there as a regular papparazzo. Celebrities like Tom Hanks and Anna Nicole Smith appear as themselves and try to fight off Nora's attempts to photograph them. Written by

The show originally premiered on ABC for the 1995-96 season. Despite receiving decent ratings, ABC cancelled it. It was subsequently picked up by NBC, and, in order to give it time to retool the show, and make some cast changes, it began its run on NBC as a springtime replacement in January 1997 (the first episode was called, "We're At NBC Now"). It was renewed for a third season. However, after still more changes to the show, ratings plummeted, and the show was cancelled. Since NBC had ordered a full season, several shows were never aired during its broadcast run. Téa Leoni is the only cast member to have remained with the show throughout its entire run. See more »
Quick! Quick! Guys, I - I need to borrow somebody's car, please.
You can borrow my car for fifty bucks.
Uh, yeah, Nora. I was hoping to get one that wasn't attached to a tow truck.

The ABC version of "The Naked Truth" is a cute, quirky comedy about Nora (Leoni) becoming a tabloid journalist after divorce. I enjoyed watching Nora and the gang get caught in awkward situations while trying to photograph celebrities. The NBC version is definitely less funny. But Tea Leoni shines in this series.
