Single mother Sherri Robinson juggles caring for her young son Bo and working part-time as a paralegal while pursuing her dream to become a full-time comedienne/actress. Sherri splits from her husband Kevin after she discovers his affair and finds solace and support from her girlfriends at the office.
Sherri hasn't been able to land an acting role since her breakup with Kevin. When she loses another bit part to her acting nemesis Traci Fabricant Sherri is convinced she's lost her mojo and throws in the towel. To help her regain it, her co-workers throw her a "dream board" party.
When Sherri cant reach Kevin by phone to confirm hes picking up a basketball hoop for Bos birthday, she tries unsuccessfully, to sneak out of work and buy it. Already overwhelmed, Sherri is asked to take on Celias workload when the president of the Ministers Wives comes to check up on her.
Sherri struggles with Bos first official custody weekend with Kevin, while her girlfriends try to show her the benefits of having time to herself. Angie drags Sherri to a bar, but a call from Bo cuts the night short.
Sherri (Sherri Shepherd) hosts a game night so her friends can finally meet Randy (Michael Boatman). Celia (Tammy Townend) brings her husband Miles (James Lesure), while Summer (Kali Rocha) and Angie (Elizabeth Regen) decide to each bring a date for the other.
Sherri prepares for a quiet, drama-free Thanksgiving with Bo and her father Redmond, but a revolving door of unexpected guests derail her plans. Meanwhile at the office, Summer, Angie and Celia pack hot meals for the needy. When the church van is towed, Angie flirts with a handsome cop and convinces him to help deliver meals.
Sherri finds herself at a crossroads between re-kindling her relationship with Kevin and starting a new future with Randy. Celia and Angie have differing opinions about whom Sherri should choose. Meanwhile, Bart Peaslee tells Summer he's ready to officially begin their relationship, but first he'd like to spoil and pamper her with a head-to-toe make-over.
