If you weren’t able to book a trip this Labor Day weekend, you can vicariously hit the beach with TV One’s new movie “Girlfriends Getaway.”

What’s a lady to do when her man decides to move across the country and end their relationship just days before her birthday? Snag her two best friends (and a frienemy) to share for a trip to Trinidad! That’s what Vicky Holmes (played by Garcelle Beauvais) did anyway.

Essence Atkins, Malinda Williams and Terri J. Vaughn round out the cast of characters, and the trip could not have come at a better time for the ladies! They’re each facing huge changes in their lives.

Of course no girls trip would be complete without at least a little drama between friends.

How would you thank your friend for a fabulous beach vacation? Cop an attitude before cracking a joke! And we noticed that middle finger, Malinda!

What’s the real root of the rift between Garcelle and Malinda? A man, of course! Because that is clearly the only problem two women could have with each other.

From the clips above, it seems like a typical girls trip with plenty of shade and laughter, but things get real when Terri’s character, Sophie, is kidnapped! It’s then up to the others to come up with $10,000 in ransom money for her safe return.

Find out if the other three are able to get it together when “Girlfriends Getaway” airs August 30 at 8 pm EST on TV One!
