2008’s Flirting With Forty, co-starring Robert Buckley’s abs, rated in the network’s top three original movies, and 2007’s Angels Fall, co-starring Johnathon Schaech, was one of the top ten most-watched telecasts in the history of the channel. You can bet Lifetime has high hopes for He Loves Me, a psychological thriller Locklear will topline for 2011. As will viewers once they read the synopsis: SHE GOES INSANE! Said plot: “By all appearances in He Loves Me, Laura (Locklear) believes she leads the idyllic life. She’s a successful Seattle real estate agent, presumably happily married to one of the city’s leading cardiologists and mother to their darling six-year-old daughter. When Laura begins to suspect her husband is cheating on her, she is devastated by his infidelity, despite having a torrid affair of her own. Desperately trying to save her marriage, Laura’s mysterious past begins to emerge, making her more paranoid, delusional, and violent in alarming ways. As her mental state continues to unravel, whoever gets in the way of Laura’s myriad of fantasies becomes expendable — no matter who they are – revealing the shocking dream world that insulates her from reality.“Heather Locklear is a favorite with Lifetime viewers who are women 18 and over. (So there are other Lifetime viewers?) Proof: In that demo,
Affairs, delusions, and, I assume, multiple homicides — heaven. A new contender for best Lifetime movie ever? Or what would you need them to throw in to secure the title?
