Last week, some ugly clothes were worn and bad
decisions were made. Thatís it, thank you very much. Sorry. Iím a
bit giddy from going to that Super Soap Weekend. Twas much fun.
I was supposed to go with a couple of friends but
at the last minute they had to work this weekend. I said, "To hell
with you two, I'm going anyway." So I went by myself. Here are my
encounters and Iíll refer to the actors by their character names
because itís just easier for me.
I saw Simone in the bathroom but I didn't say
anything to her. Bothering someone in the bathroom is kinda tacky.
Almost ran smack into Maggie. I just said, "Oh
sorry," and kept going, all the while wondering to myself why she
looked familiar. Then the light bulb came on. Well duh.
Met Kendall. She is even more gorgeous in person
than on the show. I didn't think that was possible. Her hair looks
different in person though. It's really curly. Apparently, they
mousse it a whole bunch to straighten it out a bit for the show.
Ryan took his shirt off per request. Thatís
dedication to the fans, I tell ya.
While waiting for Bianca, I saw Brooke and Jake.
Brooke is so nice. She was always waving to the fans and was so
gracious. The thing that excited me the most about seeing Jake was
noticing that he had gotten a haircut. It's about time.
Also in passing, I saw Liza, Adam, Edmund, Maria,
Vanessa, David, Jack, Opal, Tad and I hope Iím not missing anybody
although Iím sure I am. They were all so adorable in person.
A few times a day, they had a Q&A with five of
the stars. The Q&A I went to had Bianca, Maggie, Kendall, Chris and
Erica. They were asked questions from the audience. Here are each of
their responses as best I could glean from my memory.
Bianca is from Washington DC and she said she was
somewhat of an outcast because of her tendency to dress strangely.
She wanted to act since she saw her brother perform in a small play
and wanted to do it too. Her mother said she could and that she could
quit anytime she wanted. She couldn't imagine ever wanting to quit.
Maggie is from some New York suburb. Because she
was small, she was always getting locked in lockers just because she
fit into them and the guys would throw her around and play catch with
Kendall is from Ft. Lauderdale. Her mom was from
Brooklyn (here is where she did the Brooklyn accent which was pretty
funny) and her dad was from Alabama. She was Homecoming Queen in high
Chris is from Brooklyn. He got into acting in
1980 after getting on the wagon. Here is where Erica accidentally
dropped her microphone and Chris says, "Yes, I'm sober." Erica plays
along and responds, "This is you sober?"
Erica is also from a New York suburb. She was in
theater and was a cheerleader. She liked to play-act in the house as
a child and didn't socialize with other kids much until her mother
purposely locked her out of the house so she'd make friends. She and
her new friends would then put on neighborhood plays. She has a dog
that she got before she won the Emmy. She couldn't decide what to
name it at first and someone suggested Emmy since she didn't have one
yet. Her husband said to hell with Emmy, name him Oscar. Which they
Okay, the show. Iím giving the abridged version
David and Anna Ė I still donít care about them.
Although, David gave Maggie the key to his hotel room and said she
could stay there, but we didnít see hide nor hair of her afterwards.
And David and Anna didnít seem worried that she would walk in on
Kendall and Ryan Ė They were just cute all damn
week. But I wish theyíd just get it on already. The kiss on Friday
is certainly a step in the right direction. (Also, I heard from
Kendall herself that they taped their first love scene last week, so
itís gonna happen.)
The Chandlers Ė The angst over Lizaís medical
problem is played very well. Glad to see Hayley in the mix, for
once. And could Colby be more adorable?
Enchantment Ė First of all, the scene with
Erica, Kendall and Greenlee reminded me of ďGulliverís TravelsĒ with
Kendall as Gulliver and Erica and Greenlee as the Liliputians.
Kendall just towers over them. Secondly, I loved the look on
Greenleeís face when Kendall demanded her job. Overlooked a small
detail in the planning, didnít you Greenlee?
Here we go again with Kendall and the ugly
clothes. Did she get dressed in the dark on Tuesday? A blue shirt
with brown high-waisted pants? The same pants, I might add, that she
wore with the Fugly Choker Blouse oh, those many weeks ago. The
outfit wouldíve looked fine had she just worn different pants. I
would have chosen the Black Leather Pants of Eeeeevil, myself. And
donít get me started about Fridayís shirt. It looked like she put her
lingerie on over her t-shirt.
And Ericaís making my list now. That purple
outfit thing she was wearing was a good color on her but the sheer
material, the slit sleeves and the shiny skirt make for a bad
