But Simone's growing desire for something "different," and Kenya's jealously of Simone's life and marriage may end up destroying them both.Valerie has spent the better part of her 17-year marriage supporting Charles' real estate business. Now that she is focusing on her own career, Charles has become distant and disrespectful. Valerie wonders if he's just being possessive or if there's more to the attitude change.Explore how these women find the strength to overcome past hurts, insecurities, and temptations to let true love blossom.
