HONEYMOON WITH MOM aired on Lifetime Television
Starring Shelley Long, Virginia Williams and Jack Scalia
Once checked into the resort, Marla meets Nick and, over dinner, secretly tapes their conversation for her magazine article. When it is discovered what she is doing, both Nick and Shannon are deeply disappointed. Determined to make things right with her daughter, Marla destroys the tape, gives up the niceties of home in order to 'rough it', and starts to reconnect with her daughter.
Completely surprised by this change in attitude, Shannon nevertheless begins to embrace it, and begins to appreciate her mother. Even Nick begins to warm up to her again. But when Jack suddenly shows up, intent on winning Shannon back, he tells her that he can take her to her long lost father. When long-buried truths about her parents come to the surface, Shannon will realize that perhaps Marla wasn't as horrible a parent than she always thought, and that she's more like her mother than she ever expected - a fact she wouldn't change for the world.
