The television gods, however, must be serenely convinced that Leoni should be a star as soon as possible, and they will not be thwarted.

Nora is anxious to get a job at a respectable publication, but during the interview she catches Tom Hanks in a very compromising situation. Nora finds herself reduced to working at a sleazy tabloid where her first big assignment is stealing Anna Nicole Smith's urine. Nora throws a party to introduce her old friends to her new ones, but hoards of uninvited guests attend and Camilla butts heads with Suzanne Somers. Watch the video.

At home, Nora deals with deranged building manager Mr. In the second season, the show switched networks and was retooled.
