Bring On Some Fresh Meat, Already
Next we see Season 2's Mercedes of lupus fame. We flash back to Mercedes losing and being very sad. Now she's in Hollywood and has been working as an actress and a catalogue model. She says she's traveled to San Francisco to do a shoot with Mervyns. I do not know what that is. ["It's a discount clothing department store in California, at about the same level as Kohl's." -- Wing Chun] She's also been in a national Sears commercial. Mercedes drives a car. She is pursuing acting. Her "mother agency" is New Model Management. She is not quite as cute as she used to be, but she's still pretty cute. She says that you just have to be optimistic, and then you book work. Or, you die beaten-down and impoverished in some random motel room. Mercedes has done guest spots on UPN shows, including All Of Us, and she's working on a film called Unemployed. That's a likely story. It's like when my mom asked me, "Potes, are you gay?" and I said, "Mom, I thought I told you: I'm working on a film called I Like To Make It With Girls." And now what we've all been waiting for, the lupus update. Remember how Janice totally loved Mercedes after she said she had lupus? Mercedes is the Lupus Foundation of America's spokesperson, and says that she uses her exposure to get funding for education, awareness, and research. See, that's good stuff. Mercedes feels successful and says she's independent, sexy, and free.
