Romance On TV: Lipstick Jungle Introduces The Only Female Cher Impersonator


After two episodes of Lipstick Jungle, we’re hooked like the show is made of chocolate. Despite wanting to hate it, we’ve managed to make it through the name “Lipstick Jungle”, some cheesy dialogue, and the show’s “how to look like the stars” Maybelline make-up commercials without puking. But there is still one chunk that’s too hard to swallow and, sadly, it’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 80’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 time…and so does Nico while she’s having sex!

Anyway, we hope this week we’ll get to stay in the moment when Nico and Kirby get down and Nico’s tongue won’t get out.

The Daily Hotness: Lipstick Jungle’s Robert Buckley

So I finally got a chance to watch the first episode of Lipstick Jungle this weekend and, boy, did this guy give me a great first impression.

His character is supposed to be the dangerous, enticing, livin’ on the edge sweet but bad boy who adds a little spice to Nico’s otherwise lackluster love life. We’re sure that was a major stretch.

Romance On TV: It’s A Lipstick Jungle Out There

It’s weird — as much as I loved Sex and the City when it was on TV, in retrospect, watching the episodes on demand now, I realize how “meh” the show was in its last few seasons. Which is why I was half-super excited and half-weary of seeing the latest show based on a Candace Bushnell book, Lipstick Jungle. After watching the premiere last Thursday, I’m pretty sure that the show is going to have the same indulgent guilty pleasure quality of SATC, minus the oh-so-quotable-soundbites and wading pool-deep lessons. More of my assessment, after the jump. Keep reading »
