Did You Know?


Mary Cherry: Uh, Nic, a logic moment for you. Uh, if I give you my knee, how will I cheer? How will I even try out?
Nicole Julian: Well, you made it last year with your jaw-droppingly bad 'pig on Nyquil slopping towards the slaughterhouse' routine. Why break a winning streak?
Mary Cherry: Point taken.
Nicole Julian: I cannot go on as co-captain of the Glamazons with a Dolby-sound right knee cap that is threatening to crack. You give me yours or your glamorous career will be colder than Lauren Holly's.

the Nic and Mary Cherry wrecking crew
13 October 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

{on merit, the score given should have been much less, but I'm taking in consideration likable performances by Leslie Bibb and Tamara Mello}

Sorry. Not impressed. As a concept, this series promised BIG TIME FUN. The way Series One kicked off, there was hope. Lots of it. But somebody back there thought Tammy Lynn Michaels was just wonderful (and she's not) and somebody thought Leslie Grossman (as Mary Cherry) was hilarious (and she's not). Mary Cherry could have been there for one, two episodes as a weird character, the fun could have been milked there a bit, but then, been there, done that. Nicole Julian is THE MOST THOROUGHLY DESPICABLE DETESTABLE UNLIKEABLE CHARACTER I have ever seen on television. A girl like Brooke would NOT repeat NOT have had Nicole Julian as a friend, for she was PATENTLY OBVIOUSLY thoroughly nasty to all and sundry. Maybe, in real life, would have had a friend like that for two, three days - then would have seen through her. I mean, yuck! that girl's POISON in a bottle clearly marked BEWARE! POISON XXX so...! Brooke is bright and socially-aware and wouldn't tolerate this YET it is bad script-writing forcing those two together as a pair of BFFs.

Okay, now it is Season 2, and Brooke did see through Nicole Julian some episodes back in #1, yet we still have this little hell's harpie running about.

The series needed some new inflow. I'd have kept only Leslie Bibb, Carly Pope and Tamara Mello. Boyfriends and parents would have been needed occasionally, yeah, I'd have kept them on too, but those "character actors" (hell, what characters!) - Nic and Mary Cherry and Carmen and Sugar Daddy and Bio Glass and that boy with the eyebrows, well, I'd have given them all the boot.

Oh, and another thing. Variations of the line "cut off at the knee" - count them - there is a continual Freudian slip reference to plastic surgery and amputation, hallmark of Ryan Murphy Inc.

If you find the kind of oddball antics going on with Bio Glass and Mary Cherry funny, you're in luck. You'd possibly snicker at a dung beetle doing what dung beetles do, too, you idiot.
