This show is about Chelsea Stevens a Martha Steward styled character over exaggerated, the only flaw I can see with this Show is the casting and plot, the show is based on Chelsea Stevens but some times she is there, but it seams like she is an extra but that's also OK I guess so you can meet the other cast which are OK but could be better.

Its hard to think they originally wanted Kathleen Turner, Cant help but think what would of happened if this casting choice had of went threw,

I love Jean Smart but she is not the best in this role id of cast Kathleen Turner, Jean is great In Designing women and as a sexy MILF in various other shows and movies like Fraser and so on.....

The show was apparently canceled by the BILLIONAIRE tycoon goddess Martha Steward, with her hate towards the similarities and digs at her, but all I can make out is that in the show Martha was considered Chelsea's rival, and rarely mentioned if not in a lame joke, Maybe Martha had the idea of a sitcom herself and some one beat her to it who knows........

Try and think if this had a strong female cast would it off stayed on the air remember designing women was canceled till the girls begged fans to write letters to keep it on the air XD Just something to think about.
