About the Movie
Loosely based on the memoir by Canadian author Delaine Moore. The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom premieres May 31, 2014 at 9 p.m. on US Lifetime.
Delaine Morris is a devoted wife and mother who has built her life — and identity — around her family. When she discovers her husband is having an affair, she’s prompted to see how broken her marriage really is; and she can no longer subsist on self-told lies and excuses.
Coaxed by friends into trying online dating, Delaine begins corresponding with “The Duke”. Even though he lives far away, she’s hooked: His views on women’s sexuality and power both shock and captivate her. Under his online ‘mentorship’, Delaine begins dating local men and rediscovering the ambition, assertiveness and sexual desire she has been missing for so many years. But despite her strides forward in reclaiming her body and self, one pervasive thought won’t leave her alone: What would happen if she and The Duke actually met?
