where have you been all my life?

first and foremost, let me beg beg beg for your forgiveness. i have been extremely remiss in my posting. i've had a lot going on (power shopping, mostly). one thing i have done in the interim is watch television. what television?

fashion house.

thanks to circumlocutor i am hooked on the thing. of course i can't resist a good soap, and i am completely powerless when faced with an awful soap (savannah, anyone? george eads...yeah) so my new fixation on fashion house should come as no surprise.

the best part is of course that bo derek is in it. and morgan fairchild. and the two of them do the famous linda evans-joan collins credit sharing thing, where one of them (bo-bo) is first up, with her name all big, and the other (mo-mo) is last, preceeded by a well-noted "and" with her name equally blown up. as far as fashion-centric soaps go, paper dolls was of course one of the better, and since mo-mo was involved in that, i of course tuned in to catch a glimpse of her on FH. they of course don't give us any fairchild until the SECOND WEEK (save an extreme close up of her lips in the final episode of week one) so i'm on pins and needles until the next episode airs (tonight, because its on almost every night!).

my general comments are this. bo derek cannot act. it's fine. she's trying to do her best miranda priestley as "maria gianni" the owner/boss/fearless leader of the "gianni fashion house" as her fabulously lo-budg exterior shot forces us to remember. who calls a fashion house a fashion house. like, in the name? and gianni. hello. no way is bo-bo anywhere near italian (although the actor playing her son totally could be, he's beyond delicious) but the name is much too obviously a rip off of versace (there was even a "versace on acid" comment directed at some piece of clothing in the first episode). also implausible is that she be the president of one of the world's biggest fashion houses, based in LOS ANGELES. i don't think so. but that's fine. it makes for some great trashy television. made even better though, but the inclusion of this one.

delicous delicious delicious. i forget his name but who cares because frankly, it really doesn't matter how he's called. are you with me?

so in summation, let's get into fashion house. or better yet, don't even turn your television on because you'll become perilously close to getting completely sucked in and you'll be just like me, sitting at home, yelling things at the television about how "that is not a dress OMG" and "jesus christ that man is beautiful." you know how it goes.

sadly, i have no insights. i have been completely sucked into the fashion house world. its addictive and ridiculous and i can't seem to escape. no matter how much i say "god this show is awful" every night there i am, watching it.
