Jade and Betty
Channel 4 seems to be eating itself at the moment, and the viewers seem to be enjoying it.
We have the American "Devil wears Prada" knockoff of Ugly Betty, where a minor American actress spends pre-screen hours getting prepped to look less attractive in a sitcom whose plotline is almost the Lauren Weisberger novel. I wonder whether the 'inner beauty' will be sustainable, or whether the show will need an 'LA' moment where she morphs back into her un-remodelled self?
Or a different kind of Devil with filmmaker Ken Russell now an honorary member of celebrity Jade Goody's family in "Big Brother Celebrity Edition"?
Strange how things sometimes overlap.
