the beautiful life past TV show

TV show description:
The world of a high-fashion model might appear to be glamorous and sexy, but this kind of beauty is only skin deep. New models quickly learn that there’s a lot of insecurity and cut-throat competition behind the beautiful facade.

Teenage models Raina Mayer (Sara Paxton) and Chris Andrews (Benjamin Hollingsworth) are learning this for themselves — the hard way.

Raina is a stunning beauty but she has a secret past. She makes an unforgettable impression at a show that introduces a hot new line and ends up stealing the spotlight from her friend, Sonja Stone (Mischa Barton). Sonja has been mysteriously out of the country and is now desperate to reclaim her standing as the reigning supermodel.

While Raina and Sonja are living at the top of the fashion food chain, Chris is starting at the bottom. He’s a handsome farmboy from Iowa who’s just been discovered by an agent at the Covet Modeling Agency. The agency is owned by former supermodel Claudia Foster (Elle Macpherson).

At his first photo shoot, Chris’ inexperience almost derails his career until Raina comes to his rescue, showing him how to relax and work the camera. That afternoon, Raina brings Chris to the “models’ residence” where she lives alongside other young hopefuls like Marissa Delfina (Ashley Madekwe), Isaac Taylor (Corbin Bleu) and the current alpha-male-model known as Cole Shepherd (Nico Tortorella).

At an exclusive industry party that night, Chris is again impressed by Raina’s generosity. She steps aside to make sure Sonja lands a job that will resurrect her career. However, after an ugly scene with an agent, Chris is left to question whether he can survive in this world of dangerous excess and fleeting fame.

    I totally agree! They should put the unaired episodes some where. I love this show and it needs to come back on the air!! I also love melrose place and vampire diaries and top model and gossip girl. And i had like one show each day that a new episode came out and when the day for the beautiful life came and it wasnt on i was so dissapointed. Weeks passed and it remained off. Why would they pull this show? I loved it and it needs at least a web site for us fans to see the other episodes! Ya cant leave us hanging like that!! LOL but really bring it back!

    My roommate and I fell in love with this show after the first 10 minutes! We are so upset that it is no longer on..and HUGELY disappointed to see Melrose Place airing in its place. I don’t understand how this show can go off the air and Melrose Place can still be running-this was so much better.

    I do not understand how a show like this could be cancelled like this without seeing it through for at least one season
