Kelly Ripa and Faith Ford star in this hilarious sitcom that mines not only comedy gold, but also its fair share of sweetness from the odd-couple pairing of two sisters who love each other despite their obvious differences. At the start of the series, Ford's Hope Shanowski is a happy homemaker peacefully raising three kids along with her dashing her husband (Ted McGinley, MARRIED WITH CHILDREN) in the suburbs of Ohio. That all changes upon the arrival of her Hollywood sister (in a somewhat confusing turn of events, Ripa's character goes by the very familiar-sounding name of Faith Fairchild). A soap-opera star freshly killed off of her hit show, Faith will be staying in the Shanowski home for a while--and she's bringing her diva-like behavior with her! The two affably comic female stars of this winning series share an infectious chemistry. Over the course of the 25 episodes that comprise this first season, the girls are joined by such guest stars as Regis Philbin, Susan Lucci, and Clint Black.
Hope, a down-to-earth wife and mother of three lives life quietly in an Ohio suburb, until her celebrity sister, Faith, comes barging into town. Faith single-handedly stirs up drama with the family; just as her ex-soap opera character did on TV. You can take the diva off daytime, but can't take the drama out of the diva. This family comedy will keep you laughing all episode long.
