Maya Gallo is a journalist with a temper she cannot control. Maya is fired from yet another job. She upsets that particular show's anchor-woman--and does so while airing. She has made use of some silly copy--placed on the station's tele-prompter--definitely: not cool.

She is not able to find work anywhere: afterwards. The solution: Maya makes her way to "Blush". "Blush" is the lively fashion magazine headed up by Maya's Dad. She knows she needs to get employed fast; and Maya's Dad is Okay with Maya working at the fashion magazine.

There is much in the way of conflicts: personality wise. In example, there is the ex-model, who works at "Blush", stylish Nina van Horn. Then there is the photographer Elliot, who is very much the magazine's resident philanderer. Finally, there is Elliot--a true smart-aleck and secretary/assistant to Maya's Dad. The fashionable ensemble of characters with their quirky conflicts keep the sitcom lively.
