This was a made-for-TV movie starring 1992 Miss America Carolyn Sapp playing herself, as she tells the story of the physical abuse she suffered at the hands of her tough football player boyfriend.
It was courageous of her to do this, as it was not common back then for celebrities to reveal sordid details of their personal lives, as it is today.
However, I have to report, that Miss Sapp is the worst actress in the world, even playing herself ! The director must have been tearing his hair out, trying to get a decent line reading out of her. She sounded like a first grader reading out of a Dick, Jane, and Sally book.
An interesting aspect of this film is seeing how the pageant works. But I found it unrealistic, that in the story they show all the pageant officials slobbering over Miss Sapp, as if she were the most magnificent contestant ever in the whole history of the Pageant. Well, she was not any more beautiful than the other winners, and without the makeup and gowns, she was not glamorous looking at all.
It is not surprising that this telemovie was never shown on TV again, nor is it available on video or DVD.
