Or the twins, Emmy and Nat, who are used to their mum being there for them whenever, and for whatever, they need. And then there's Tyler's children: Mallory, a young actress who craves her father's attention, and Seth, whose San Francisco bakery is just taking off and needs all the money he can get.Both Rose and Tyler are determined to get it right this time, but in trying to make everyone happy, can they ever be happy themselves?
