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.
The housemates participate in an exercise designed to teach patience and understanding; Towanda strives for answers regarding her problematic childhood; Kim learns of a tragedy involving her best friend; Josie and Sommer search for love.
