Debra Messing’s looking pretty smashing!
Who knew that February 7th would be such stand out day for fierce females? From ACTUALLY exciting NBC programming news to some plastic, drastic shoulder pads the gurlz are doing it for themselves this Monday, ok?
First of all, comes the heavenly, clutch-my-pearls and hand me my vapors news that Debra Messing is set to star in an upcoming drama on NBC as a New York woman working with a gay man on a musical about Marilyn Monroe. …. In the words of Green Day, wake me up when September premiere week ends. The show is called Smash, and was developed based on an idea by Steven Spielberg. This whole project sounds bigger than that AOL Huffington Post merger and I am equally invested in getting it to pay me to tap dance.
Moving along, we really, really need to talk about Melissa Leo. As a country perhaps. In case you don’t know, Melissa Leo is nominated for a Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in The Fighter, that movie about boxing in cold weather. Now, Ms. Leo was not too happy about the way Paramount was marketing her performance to potential voters so she took matters into her own hands by buying a few GLORIOUS for your consideration ads herself. What makes this extra amazing is that she’s being nominated for a gritty, street smart role and the ads are just her in gowns and faux fur with the word “Consider…” Oh, you fancy huh? I will consider, Melissa Leo. Both voting for you, and buying the fancy French perfume that you’re selling.
Lastly, do you still garner a level of enjoyment from those Dynasty box sets, but wish you could translate that joy into a more interactive experience? You’re in luck! The only thing that upsets me about this Alexis Carrington doll is that it didn’t come out soon enough for me to ask for one for Christmas. Did you know Alexis Carrington and I are best friends? NBD.
