DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) What happens when you reach a certain age, and you're nowhere near where you wanted to be? Time for plan B. With no happily-ever-after on the horizon, 30-something Caroline shakes up her life and leaves her fiancée of five years. Divine inspiration or supremely idiotic? Only time will tell. She has no man, no kids, no will power against carbs, and no time to prepare for a fat new promotion. Too bad her new employees are all too familiar with the old Caroline and don't hesitate to remind her. She gets plenty of advice from her often-married, audacious mother, and her ever-pregnant kid sister. But this is her life. And it's too late for second guessing, so Caroline must learn to stand her ground – even if that means raiding the emergency donut supply. Caroline Rhea turns her own personal demons and insanity into a comedy for every woman who wakes up and realizes she wants more out of life, love and snack food.
