After their father runs off with his teenage mistress, Sophie and Karen Kerr decide that their family needs a fresh start and convince their mother Lynn that the big city holds promise for all of them. Sophie has won a scholarship to a prestigious Manhattan private school, Karen can pursue her dreams of modeling, and Lynn can leave the painful memories of her failed marriage behind while reviving the ambitions of becoming a fashion designer she had put on hold to raise a family. The Kerr women arrive in New York ready to build a new life in this rarified place that promises as many challenges as it does possibilities. Manhattan. Global big shots, CEOs, diplomats, and the self-important social elite all make their homes there and send their precious children to the Brighton School. When Sophie enters this world she realizes she has no idea how to fit in with the privileged, posturing social climbers at her new school, the so-called "BPs," aka "Beautiful People." It's nothing like her ... Written by Noel Eisenberg

A new surprise hit on ABC Family. Watch you will be pleased!
28 March 2006 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

I'm so glad that the ABC Family channel brought back "Beautiful People" for another season this is just a show that I cheer for! A great story you have the Kerr family who move from a small New Mexico town all the way to New York City to start a new life, only to find as always new challenges and problems await. Lynn Kerr played brilliant by Daphne Zuniga (and just to mention I'm glad to see her working again she's great as always just remember her Melrose Place days!) is a single separated split mother from her husband who has two daughters, the first high-schooler Sophie(Sarah Foret) who is the brains of the family, a straight A student and hard worker who attends the city's best private school academy. Second it's Karen(Torrey DeVitto) who is ambitious, free-spirited and sexy she has dreams of stardom as a fashion model. Along the way all experience good times and bad times in the city, ghost of the past come along the way as Lynn comes in contact with her old college love that she now sees in the city, not to mention her ex-husband and a custody battle all along while trying to deal with her new job in fashion design and trying to help guide her daughters direction in the Big Apple. Never fear with a trio of ladies like these beauties it's love, smarts, and ambition that will conquer all! Watch "Beautiful People" it's a must watch you will be so happy! Last but not least I must mention that Torrey DeVitto is so pretty, it's only right to have her on a show like "Beautiful People". Torrey is one sexy thing! Really so many adjectives could describe her anything from sexy, pretty, beautiful, so many I can't think of enough words, I hope I see her in more series or maybe big screen films. Now I end my comment with another thing about Torrey, I remember one episode last year from the first season when she was about to make love before mom Lynn walked in on her, as she started to undress she had on a sexy and silk light-colored blue/ greenish bra, now that made Torrey want to be my girl!
