Countdown To The Belles An introduction to the five belles in the original docusoap, "Southern Belles: Louisville."
Meet The Belles Meet the Southern Belles of Louisville, Kentucky.

Next there's Hadley, the newcomer to Louisville. She's highly educated, but has trouble committing to both jobs and men. Then there's Julie, a local model, but as her 35th birthday approaches, she finds herself at a career standstill and without a husband. Southern Belle Kellie is a twice-divorced woman who married into high society, but for the first time she has to see if she can stand on her own. Finally there's Shea, daddy's girl who's used to getting what she wantsand what she wants most is a weddingeven if her boyfriend hasn't proposed yet. These five women will not settle when it comes to making their dreams come true.
New Beginnings The girls help Julie celebrate her 35th birthday as she faces the harsh reality that her clock is ticking and her job is at a standstill. Meanwhile, Emily is offered a job opportunity that her conservative parents will not be happy about; Hadley regrets telling Sterling she has strong feelings for him; Shea and her father have already started picking dates for her wedding, even though Shea's boyfriend, Jeff, hasn't proposed yet; and Kellie, ironically, decides to start a matchmaking business, even though shes been divorced twice.
The Belles Bond The girls go away for the weekend, where some friction between Shea and Emily results in a surprising makeover. While there, Kelly reveals some deep secrets from her past. Later, in a tense encounter, Emily meets with a style consultant who thinks she may need to tone down her look to be taken seriously.
Engagements And Break-Ups Shea and Jeff's relationship takes a turn when they go visit his family in the Outer Banks. Will she finally get her engagement ring? Meanwhile, Emily takes drastic measures to update her appearance for her new part-time job in Las Vegas, and, after spending some time apart, Hadley and Sterling meet up and she is shocked by what he has to say.
Facing Our Differences Shea has big news to share with the girls, but gets interrupted by Emily's hair issues over and over again. Later, the girls go wild at Kellie's slumber party, and Julie's foray back onto the runway doesn't go the way she might have hoped.
Back In The Saddle Julie starts to fall for Cody. Is the feeling mutual, or will this be their last date? Meanwhile, to please her father, Emily gives the local radio station a try, but will she be able to give up the bright lights of Vegas to make her father happy?
