Soon to be a Lifetime movie called "Lying to be Perfect"
When Nola Devlin is turned down for her dream job because she's overweight, she decides to become thin-or, at least, pretend to be. The alter ego she creates-the thin, British, hip, and did we mention thin Belinda Apple-is a smashing success who is offered movie proposals, national television appearances and even dates...though no one's met her in person, of course.
Then Nola takes Belinda a bit too far, and is forced to join "The Cinderella Pact" and drop the pounds. As the weight comes off, however, Nola's problems begin to mount. Watch a Video
In this funny and big-hearted story by the author of "The Secret Lives of Fortunate Wives," three close friends make a pact to transform themselves into the glamorous women they've always wanted to be--with unexpected results.
