“Ab Fab”‘s Joanna Lumley decided to do some advertisements for Sky on Demand in the UK and we are better for it. Watch as she takes on the Khaleesi herself, “Game of Thrones”’ Daenerys Targaryan (as well as a few other cast members), then check her out as “The Walking Dead”’s Rick Grimes over at The Mary Sue…
“Don’t look like trash, don’t get drunk, don’t be sick down your front, don’t break your heels and stagger about in the wrong clothes at midnight. This is bad. It’s not me being a snob about it. It’s not me being an old woman talking to young women, its just standard practice for how our species should behave. Don’t behave badly. … I promise you it is better to look after yourself properly, which means behave properly, be polite, be on time, dress properly – I don’t mean dully – but don’t be sick in the gutter at midnight in a silly dress with no money to get a taxi home, because somebody will take advantage of you, either they’ll rape you, or they’ll knock you on the head or they’ll rob you. … I am now an old lioness, if I see my young ones getting out of order, I’ve got to be able to say to them this is not how lions behave. This is not right.”
– Here’s Joanna Lumley, who plays Patsy on “Absolutely Fabulous,” making comments to the UK’s Telegraph that have infuriated a lot of folks for victim-blaming. Newsflash, Joanna: women still get raped if they “behave properly” and “dress properly.” Believe me, I understand the concerns about young women and binge drinking — but these comments are pretty gross for all the “don’ts” they place on women alone. The problem is the robbers and the rapists, not women who dare to get drunk or wear a “silly dress.” [Telegraph UK]
Okay, so this is pretty awesome: Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders, stars of the amazing British show “Absolutely Fabulous,” carried the Olympic torch for a moment on Friday. The pair star as the boozy, bruisey Patsy and Adina on the show, and while it’s unfortunate that they didn’t show up in character, it’s probably for the best. Patsy might’ve tried to light her cigarette with the torch.
Kate Moss is gorgeous, but is she funny? This clip of her and Stella McCartney going head-to-head against Patsy from “Absolutely Fabulous” puts her to the test.
Watch as British sitcom “Absolutely Fabulous” rips into the Kardashians and their annoying omnipresence these days. Even if British humor isn’t your thing, you’ll giggle when they say, “There’s a new disease called the Kardashians, darling. They just sort of spread … like herpes.” Careful ladies, if visas allow I wouldn’t put it past them to pitch “Kourtney & Kim Take London.” [Huffington Post]
This year, it appears our Christmas wishes have come early. The long-awaited return of caustic British series “Absolutely Fabulous” is upon us, and we’ve got a tiny, tiny sneak peak of what’s to come during their two-part holiday special. [ONTD]
