What is Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas about?

Five gorgeous soap opera actresses reunite in Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas, sharing the spotlight as they film the show’s final Christmas episode.

The director, Nell (Thompson), and producer, Alex (Burns), who also happen to be former college friends, try their best to keep things in check, but as the women draw closer, old grudges resurface and threaten to destroy the entire project. Due to the ladies’ well-known diva behavior, the performance is almost cancelled before it even starts. As a result, they grudgingly decide to put their disagreements and personal history aside in order to “act” as though they are still in love.

The ladies are eager to play cupid and plot to reunite Alex and Nell when their romantic feelings rekindle. The divas learn along the journey that their love for one another is still extremely strong.
