He, a handsome and charming rock star, and she, a bombshell Brazilian fashion designer met while in college (he, at that liberal Ivy Brown and she, at Rhode Island School of Design).
After graduating, their fates take them to New York where he writes numerous songs about her and both live happily ever after. Until, that is, they break up. But, as the screenplay (and eager audience) demands, they meet again in Rome and fall back in love.
Then, in quick succession, they get married and start a family. The plot thickens, of course, when this new family (who lived in a gorgeous, inconvenient walk-up in the West Village) decide to move to an apartment on the Upper East Side.
