Intoxicating and irreverent, Rave's lowdown on an upscale Manhattan waxing salon owned by obsessive compulsive Carolina Impresario exposes the secrets of three sisters whose lives are filled with dishy complications. Carolina, 43, is torn between two men, Ron and Jack, one of whom is responsible for an unexpected midlife development. Anna, 35, the middle sister, is the harried mother of Fabiana,15, Michael,12, and son Ariel, 6, who has decided he's a girl. Anna returns to waxing work after her husband leaves over Ariel's behavior. The youngest sis, pretty popular techie, Sofia, 26, loves being married to Scott, a handsome investment banker, but she's drawn to a hunky gay client. Rave (Spin) waxes eloquent in this hilarious soap as the sisters become independent women with some outside guidance, friendship, and inner musings. (Aug.)
