Directed by Don Scardino, VH1’s ‘The Bitch Who Stole Christmas’ is a television movie that follows a workaholic fashion journalist who is tasked by her editor to visit a Christmas-obsessed city to dig up an exciting story. However, she is not ready for the unexpected adventures awaiting her there. The journalist is dragged into a risky Winter Ball competition and soon finds herself amidst cut-throat homemakers who are willing to go to any lengths to gain a competitive advantage. While all of this is acceptable, the protagonist is only alerted when she comes across a sinister plot to put an end to the Christmas festivities forever in the small town.
The initial anxieties of the big-city fashion journalist in completely new surroundings and the joy that comes with the engagement in the festival gatherings are all filmed with the Christmas celebrations as the main theme.
