| know the source of this film
I have first hand knowledge of the source of this film. From a story out of Seattle Washington about a young woman, she was single, who started a well publicized business catering to athletes who need food, cleaning and a mother. She developed the business starting with a famous NBA center by the name of Jack Sikma who played for the Supersonics. My wife became involved through our friendship with the entrepreneur. The story was Hollywoodized and lost some of its gusto. The film is poor not in any way to the discredit of those who started the show. Any drama that came because of marital issues, portrayed in the film, was of course fictional. Twenty three years later we remain married. The heroine of the story today is a successful restaurateur, wife, mother and gorgeous socialite in San Diego.
