But her boring life in working-class Brooklyn, where she lives with her cranky old grump of a mother, couldn't possibly be any further from the bright lights and glamour of the red carpet. A tragically bad picture involving the teenage Katie, Aunt Gladys's ancient bathing suit and a whole lot of rashy skin wins Katie a coveted appearance on American Sexy, the most popular makeover show on television. In front of millions of beauty hungry fans American Sexy's mysterious host, Maleo Malathustra, miraculously transforms the homely Katie into a world class hottie. Immediately she finds herself plunged into the realm of movie stars, paparazzi, and lavish nightclub parties. When Katie discovers being fabulous isn't as easy as she thought it would be, and that the super suave Maleo might have an unexpected dark side, she becomes disillusioned with her new party girl lifestyle. Unfortunately for Katie, she can't even begin to imagine the nightmarish makeover Maleo has in store for her. Despite wanting nothing more than to return to her simple old life, Katie learns once the black magic of the celebrity world decides to change you, you might never recognize yourself again.
