Synopsis

<p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small; ">You only&nbsp;<i>think&nbsp;</i>you want this life . . . <p>Alex Maxwell is planning her wedding to up-and coming music artist Birdie, ghostwriting video vixen Cleopatra Wright&rsquo;s memoir,&nbsp;<i>and&nbsp;</i>she&rsquo;s just been assigned the story of the year by her editor in chief at a major music industry magazine&mdash;an article about the glamorous lives of women married to platinum-selling hip-hop artists. Alex has been interviewing celebrities and hangers-on long enough to know all that glitters isn&rsquo;t gold, so she&rsquo;s determined to get the real scoop. Still, it&rsquo;s not going to be easy to get past the wives&rsquo; gilded cages. . .</p> <p>Beth Saddlebrook, wife of aging rapper Z. They have three beautiful boys and a seemingly endless supply of cash. But Beth spends her days trying to keep Z off drugs and fielding calls from women hollering she&rsquo;s just a &ldquo;small-town white bitch&rdquo; and claiming to be carrying Z&rsquo;s baby. Only one person understands what she&rsquo;s going through. . .</p> <p>Kipenzi Hill, multiplatinum-selling R&amp;B artist and Beth&rsquo;s best friend. Her relationship with rap star and record label president Jake is an open secret in the industry. She knows Jake loves her, but he&rsquo;d rather break up than publicly acknowledge it. Now she has learned that the newest (and much younger) R&amp;B sensation Bunny has been signed to Jake&rsquo;s label.</p> <p>Josephine Bennett, wife to Jamaican singer and &Uuml;berproducer Ras Bennett. Josephine doesn&rsquo;t just want to spend her husband&rsquo;s money, she wants to contribute. Her fashion company is finally starting to get media attention when her husband admits to something she&rsquo;s suspected all along&mdash;he&rsquo;s fallen in love with another woman.</p> <p>Cleopatra Wright, every man&rsquo;s dream girl, a video vixen with a story to tell and scores to settle. Cleo&rsquo;s got that thing no one can put a finger on and no man (or woman) can resist. Some would call her evil or misguided or both, but Cleo always moves with a purpose and she&rsquo;ll stop at nothing to get what she wants. . .&nbsp;</p> <p>Alex realizes she may have more in common with these women than she&rsquo;d like. What if this is a glimpse of how her life will be if Birdie finally gets signed to a major label? Stuck between her loyalty to this newfound sisterhood and her obligation to write the truth, Alex is forced to rethink everything she knows about work, friendship, and love.</p> </span></p>
