Wow. Not a single name I can recognize.
See, I took that as a sign that I'm not watching enough Lifetime movies.
You know what's really sad, though, is when you see someone you DO recognize in a Lifetime movie, because it's usually obvious that they ended up there because women are still disposable after their early 30s in the film industry. Lots of women who may not be A list actors but are still better than Lifetime movies seem to have ended up in Lifetime movies once they got up around 40.
Elizabeth Peña is in Lifetime movies
Thora Birch was in The Pregnancy Pact
Kelly Lynch in Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life
Danica McKellar is no Meryl Streep but she should be able to do better than "Mommy I Didn't Do It"
I'm sure there are plenty of others but I don't watch enough Lifetime movies to say off the top of my head.
Whoopi Goldberg was in "A Day Late and A Dollar Short"
Dana Delany was in "Baby For Sale"
I hope they all got paid more than they probably did.
Molly Shannon in "More Of Me" (the unofficial Lifetime remake of Multiplicity)
The inevitable Lifetime biopic of Shelly Duvall is going to be unbearable.
Heather Graham was in the Lifetime version of Flowers In the Attic. She was good in Boogie Nights, so we know it's possible for her to act when she's actually given a good script/director.

If you don't stream this on your next night we can't be friends anymore.
I have a different Lifetime movie in mind.
I watched all of this and at first I didn't think it would reach Cyberseduction levels but the third act is pretty amazing.
Right now I'm thinking of Valentine's Day appropriate titles like "My Stepson, My Lover" (90s and widely reputed to be one of the all time worst Lifetime movies), "Dirty Teacher" (based on a true story!), "Open Marriage" (about how open relationships lead to murder), "She's Too Young" (about how oral sex leads to suicide and/or murder, but I haven't found a copy of it yet), and "Mother May I Sleep With Danger?" (don't know much about this one but the title seems to show up a lot in discussions of especially bad Lifetime movies).
I haven't seen any of them though, so I'm not sure what the best choice would be. All except She's Too Young are available in decent quality on Youtube.
Oh, add "The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom" to that list, it looks amazing but unfortunately it's also proving a bit hard to find.
I made it the first three minutes, until that rad supergay dance track ended.

Spoilers, it was her best friend who secretly hates her because her life is so amazingly white.
Oh son of a bitch, I almost worked on this film but the lunatic I was working for passed it up to work on a friends film that never happened (thanks for the five months of unemployment that destroyed my savings you fucking drunk).
@Rangoon, you've probably never heard their names because all but the leads of most of these movies are Canadian actors.
I can tell you this film was shot in something like 12-14 days and the departments probably had two, two and a half weeks top to prep.
Lifetime Television: Abuse Porn for the 40+ white woman.
That's not fair, they also do movies about status anxiety.
Ok, Fine, Abuse Porn and revenge fantasies for women who hit their peak in highschool
