Five years ago, I started watching The Starter Wife for Debra Messing, but I stayed for Stephen Moyer. Only, I didn’t realize it was Stephen Moyer until years later.
Let me back up: The Starter Wife was a USA miniseries about a recently divorced single mother who was trying to develop her skills as a writer. It was based on the novel of the same name by Gigi Levangie Grazer, but all I really remember about it is that Debra Messing played the lead character, Molly Kagan, who lived in a gorgeous oceanfront house with her daughter. And after divorcing her very rich husband, Molly surrounded herself with a quirky group of friends and one very attractive island man. I don’t think they were actually on an island, but that’s the best way to describe him.
Basically, a beautiful tanned blond man appeared on the beach one day and proceeded to sweep Molly off her feet. Having been married to a studio executive, a homeless island man wasn’t a likely choice for her next suitor, but this one was hard to resist with his bronze skin and his rock-hard physique.
