TV talk show host Ray Whitehall loves Honeybelle Starr. To further her modeling career, he arranges a meeting with a cosmetic tycoon who turns out to be a comedic, masochistic lecher. Giving her a gun for self protection, he lunges at her. Two shots ring out and he falls dead. Dropping the gun, Honeybelle runs out of the room. A woman enters and replaces the dropped weapon with her own smoking gun. Ray finds the body. Honeybelle swears she didn't do it.

The real murderess appears threatening to expose Honeybelle as a fraud unless she receives half of her celebrity earnings. A hilarious plot twist resolves the dilemma.
