One gifted girl, one super diva, one ego too many. . .

She's got mad talent, her own singing group, and honor roll grades. Sunday Tolliver is this close to making her music industry career dreams come true--until her mother spends her entire college fund. Now Sunday's only chance to get to college means slaving as a "personal assistant" to her diva cousin, Dreya. And since Dreya just got the record deal of a lifetime and an upcoming tour with hip-hop's biggest rapper, Truth, Sunday is sure Dreya's ego-trippin', among other things, couldn't get worse. But when bad boy Truth starts pushing up on Sunday and her life becomes "Paparazzi Blogs Gone Wild," a jealous Dreya is on the warpath. Can Sunday make the right moves before her dreams go up in smoke for good?

With boy troubles, a shooting involving Sunday's mom's boyfriend, a (fictitious) planned BET reality show starring Truth and Drama and Sunday's level-headed, whip-smart, suffer-no-fools narration, this series is poised to “blow up” like Sunday's music career.
