A waitress/actress in LA is back home for a friend's bridal shower. She lets her friends believe, that she's dating the hot actor Chas. Returning to LA, she meets Chas, who has his own reasons for keeping the rumor alive.
Handsome, popular Chas Hunter, a star since childhood, wins another series lead at auditions where would be-actress Clarissa Byers is duly sent off for clumsily spilling hot coffee all over him auditioning as waitress. Frustrated to return home for her best friend's wedding, still single and without career success, she pretends to have landed a fine role and fiance: Chad. Paparazzi get wind of her lies which might compromises Chad's reputation, so his bossy ex and publicist decides he should play along and then dump her after the best friend's wedding. Charming Chad soon gets along with the party guests, even bonds with Clarissa, who starts realizing he's her kind of prince charming, until the publicist arrives to break them up for maximal publicity.
