“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]
While traditionally women have been prized for their virtue and morality, there’s a crop of bitches out there that are sketchier than their breath and we love them for it! Every day for your viewing pleasure, these ladies got drunk as skunks, popped a few pills, said what was on their mind, dress to the nines, and then do it all over again. Yeah, they’ll never win the Nobel Prize or even Mother of the Year, but we think they deserve their applause for simply being over-the-top entertainment. So for the ladies we’d love to tie one on with, here are our Favorite Female Lushes.

Sex is still in the city and on HBO. Kim Cattrall, aka Samantha Jones, will executive produce/star in Sensitive Skin, a new show about a 50-something Manhattan housewife putting herself (and her crotch) out there. The series will be based on a BBC program of the same name which featured the coolest cougar from Absolutely Fabulous, Patsy (aka Joanna Lumley). Sopranos alums, writers Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green, have also signed on to guide the project and we’re sure with Ms. Kim in the lead role, this new show will be just as hit-able stateside.
