The latest entry into the world of daytime chatfests started yesterday afternoon. Just what the world needed! Actually, I'm probably more inclined to watch this show than The View, but mostly because of my undying fascination with Julie Chen. Seriously, even in seasons when Big Brother sucks, I still watch to see what she's wearing. And while I usually can't catch The Early Show, I can totally DVR The Talk and watch it while I'm fixing dinner (and by that I mean calling for take out).
Think Marissa Jaret Winokur is annoying on Dancing With the Stars? You should see this very grating clip from Stacked (though to be fair, she was far from the worst thing about that show). I actually adored the spunky plus-size Winokur in her Tony-winning role in Hairspray, but since then she's been typecast (or perhaps just cast judging by her appearance on Dancing) as a whiny, irritating girl instead of the confident person she portrayed in Hairspray. She does have a dance background, if she toned down the voice a bit and tried to endear herself to the American public, she could probably go far (or at least further) on Dancing With the Stars and be a good role model for curvy girls everywhere. Instead, she'll likely get axed tonight leaving the more demure (and skinnier) contestants to compete for the trophy.
Discuss Marissa on Dancing here.
