I grew up on reruns of The Golden Girls, AbFab, Keeping Up Appearances, The Jeffersons, Mama's Family, The Carol Burnett Show, Laverne & Shirley, I Love Lucy, and Designing Women. I've been addicted to television ever since.
My newer televisual obsessions include: Cougar Town, The Good Wife, Veep, Archer, Arrested Development, Orange is the New Black, Mindy Project, Girls, Justified, Miranda, 30 Rock, True Blood, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, AHS, The Office, Supernatural and of course The Real Housewives.
I love female comics, including: Joan Rivers, Bette Midler, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Griffin, Chelsea Handler, etc.
My dream: creating my own series.
Or publishing a book.
I'm fluent in French, Portuguese, Spanish. Graduated from Cal, current UCLA student.
Cheers, thanks a lot mate, and remember:
1). Lucille Bluth, Arrested Development — The epitome of a boozy gangy.
2). Patsy Stone, Absolutely Fabulous — The woman doesn’t eat solids, only champagne and vodka run through her veins.
3). Karen Walker, Will & Grace — Karen made it clear: she loves to drink. And in the eight season run of the series, I don’t think she was ever sober.
4). Meredith Palmer, The Office — Once, Meredith licked hand sanitizer off her hand because it contains alcohol. No one has reached that level of desperation for a buzz.
5). Ramona Singer, The Real Housewives of New York City — Pinot Grigio is definitely her blood type. Actually, she has her own brand of wine called, Ramona. It’s always Turtle Time for ‘Mona.
6). The girls from Cougar Town — They love to pound grape, in red and white. Jules even has a giant glass of wine, and Ellie drinks cough-tails. They’ve even rimmed margaritas with crushed up aspirin. Bonus: Jules “can’t say no to tequila.”
7). Maryann Thorpe, Cybill — It was rare to see Christine Baranski’s divorcee empty handed.
8). Malory Archer, Archer — Sure, Malory is animated but, she’s voiced by the great Jessica Walter who plays Lucille Bluth, so it’s not hard to believe. Plus, like mother like alcoholic son. She could probably drink Sterling and the rest of the cast, under the table.
9). Nina Van Horn, Just Shoot Me! — Wendie Malick was born to play this former-model turned fashion editor whose lifestyle included pills, partying, and of course, drinking.
I’ll be channeling my inner Patsy Stone, sweetie darlings.
