    I caught a New Show on Lifetime Cable last night called Drop dead Diva
    and It was hysterically funny

    with some special humor for gay guys
    It also has the added attraction of having Margaret Cho

    The show is about a shallow Valley Elle Woods type who dies in a car accident
    She tricks a very cute intake angel into getting her back to earth
    but as a Heavy set woman who happens to be a fast track lawyer

    The writing is very funny and witty
    and the characters are spot on .....

    It's got some Legally Blonde
    Heaven Can Wait
    Devil Wears Prada
    and LA Law all wrapped up in one

    Watch it if you can icon_biggrin.gif

    I read the preview for this one, and though at first it sounds tempting, I don't see how it can end well. The way I see it, either

    a) The model soul will transform her fat girl body into a non-obese one, sending the message that it's bad to be a fat chick, or

    b) we all learn that being a fat chick is just fine, which promotes and glamorizes an unhealthy lifestyle (Chucky, you jump in anywhere).

    Did this bother anyone else?

    I saw it too. I don't see how they can make her skinny and still have a show. The humor seems to be in the Elle Woods sort of dichotomy between her legal skills and her airhead personality. There is a bit more drama to the show than I would have thought. The scene at her funeral, and the one later in the office when she sees her boyfriend again, were actually quite tragic...

    I do not watch Life Time at all normally. It is veryyy coincidental for me to watch that show. I was zapping & saw Margaret Cho in it. I wanted to give it a chance... Oh, it was really great & witty in some scenesicon_smile.gif. I will continue to watch that show & along with Warehouse smth. in SyFy (not SciFi anymore).

    Among the people that would know behind these clichees. I can consider my self as one.

    I've had an obese room mate, not only she was shallow, but she was very messy, looked like a sasquatch. Not combing her hair, did not pluck her moustache, washed her self once a week, did not brush her teeth & an icing on the cake, she was bipolar!!!!!

    Oh she did not show her good !!!!! qualities in the beginning. The house was tidy, when I was about to be room mate with her. Oh, what a night mare.
