Weekend highlights: So what does the 'B' stand for in 'GCB?'
Hold on to your cowboy hats! March kicks off with the scandalous new series “GCB,” where the ‘B’ stands for belles, but could stand for something a little less savoury…
In the premiere episode, Amanda, who was once the high school “mean girl,” is forced to move home after her marriage ends in a scandal following her husband’s death. Her mother Gigi, wants nothing more than to give Amanda and her two teenage kids a good southern upbringing, and Amanda has to dodge all of her childhood “friends” who have all been crossed by Amanda in the past and are looking for payback.
On “Once Upon A Time,” Emma looks into the disappearance of David’s wife, Kathryn, and for the first time ever, the “Amazing Race” travels to Paraguay, where the teams are faced with a cruel reality if they’re not able to perfect the local balancing act.
