Cannie is a plus size woman, who recently requested a break from her boyfriend. Not a BREAK UP but a little time off. Bruce didn't see it that way and decided that he would discuss his relationship with "C" in a magazine, monthly. Cannie can't believe it. She also realizes that she still loves this man.
A few months later, Bruce's dad dies and Cannie comes to the funeral. Tags along with Bruce and his friends, just "being there". They all eventually leave and Cannie stays. Then comes the I'm-sorry-for-your-loss sex. And BAM. Look who turns out to be pregnant.
They are not back together and Bruce has no interest in getting back with her. Cannie eventually writes him a letter to advise him of the pregnancy; it's the right thing to do. Telling him he ball is in his court.
At this point, Cannie's life becomes awesome. She meets a young starlet she was to interview and they become friends. This starlet, Maxi, get Cannie connected with her agent who now wants to make Cannie's screenplay into a movie. Her weight loss doctor has the hots for her, but she doesn't see it. She spends a couple of months in California with Maxi just enjoying life.
