Guilty Pleasures

EPISODE:

Episode Info

"Guilty Pleasures" examines the popularity of romance novels through the stories of three fans, an author and a male model whose face graces the covers of many books. The fiction feeds Japanese housewife Hiroko's fantasies of being wooed by a David Beckham look-alike. Shumita, an Indian woman whose husband left her, recognizes the books' Utopian take on love but enjoys them, anyway. And British author Gill Sanderson, surprisingly, turns out to be a male pensioner who resides in a trailer park.
