Synopsis

Mamie is being blackmailed. This filmmaker named Nicky claims to know Mamie's son--the one she gave up for adoption--but Nicky won't introduce her to him unless he can film their reunion. Enter Javier, Mamie's massage therapist boyfriend, who convinces Nicky to film him instead. Now they're all making a movie about massage--and 'happy endings.' Charley has a longtime boyfriend named Gil. Their best friends, Pam and Diane, once tried using Gil as a sperm donor. They said his sperm didn't take, but Charley thinks those control-freak lesbians are lying. Pam and Diane's two-year-old son looks exactly like Gil. And it's time to set the record straight. Jude is pissed--not at anyone in particular--just in general. When her cousin kicks her out of the house, Jude shacks up with Otis, who's still trying to convince his father, Frank, that he's straight. Frank's a widower. And he's rich. So Jude decides to sleep with him, too. The last thing she expected was to fall in love.
