Romance On TV: Lipstick Jungle Introduces The Only Female Cher Impersonator
After two episodes of Lipstick Jungle, weâ€™re hooked like the show is made of chocolate. Despite wanting to hate it, weâ€™ve managed to make it through the name “Lipstick Jungle”, some cheesy dialogue, and the showâ€™s “how to look like the stars” Maybelline make-up commercials without puking. But there is still one chunk thatâ€™s too hard to swallow and, sadly, itâ€™s smack dab in the middle of our favorite part here at the Frisky: the sex scenes. Nico, played by blonde beauty Kim Raver, has a hot boy toy, Kirby, played by the six-pack named Robert Buckley. While the man has plenty of sex appeal, the 80â€™s kid inside us has stopped picturing the pink Nintendo Kirby and has gotten stuck on yet another timeless image: Cher. You know her signature top lip lick? She, and her impersonators (like Jack on Will and Grace — check out the clip above!), do it all the timeâ€¦and so does Nico while sheâ€™s having sex! Instantly “Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves” starts playing in our heads — although, perhaps that would be a better show title…. Anyway, we hope this week weâ€™ll get to stay in the moment when Nico and Kirby get down and Nicoâ€™s tongue wonâ€™t get out.
