Starting Over is an American reality television series that follows the lives of women who are experiencing difficulty in their lives and want to make changes, with the help of life coaches. Six women at a time work to overcome obstacles and meet personal goals. When it is determined that a woman has met all her goals, she "graduates" from the house and is replaced by a new roommate. On the other hand, if it is determined that she has not met her goals, she could be put on probation, or asked to leave.
Allison visits a genetic specialist to determine her risk of developing cancer again; Layne realizes the connection between her relationships with the men in her life and the men in her family; Rachael speaks to her half sister for the first time.
