In Charleston, South Carolina the four sexagenarian BFFs gather for the funeral of the millionaire husband of one of them Teresa Amelia “Toots” Loudenberry; this is her eighth spouse she has buried.  She informs her buddies that the mourning period will be one week before they dash to Hollywood.

Obsessive-compulsive Disorder centerfold Ida, overweight Mavis accompanied everywhere by Coco the Chihuahua and smoker Sophie agree to go with her to California.  Toots plans to buy the near bankrupt tabloid the Informer where her daughter Abby Simpson works as a reporter.  . However, the ten million dollar deal collapses when newspaper publisher Rodwell Archibald Godfrey III takes the money and runs to the Cayman Islands. V

THE SCOOP is a zany over the top of the Hollywood Hills starring the Golden Girls who go after Godfrey.  Each of the four musketeers is different, while the ringleader is Toots.  The story line is amusing and irrelevant as even the opening funeral services affirm nothing is sacred in life when it comes to eternity.  Fans will enjoy this madcap comedic tale as the escapades keep on coming when the four BFFs go after their man.
