Fug File: people we don't see out much

Beverly Fug, 90210

Kathleen Robertson! You may remember her from her role as Clare on Beverly Hills 90210, on which she was Steve’s beleaguered girlfriend, who Made Him a Better Man before bailing to go to Paris FOREVER. Surely you recall this heart-wrenching moment in Steve’s life. I once had a week about ten years ago in which I ran into her both at Denny’s — at 3 a.m., because this is when I was young — and then the next day at Bloomingdale’s. So what I’m saying is, I’m pretty sure Kathleen Robertson was stalking me once. And I thought I was free from her, but HERE SHE IS:

Judging from the tights, I suspect she may also be moonlighting as a nurse. In the 1950s.


The X-Fugs

I feel underqualified to write this post. Jessica recapped The X-Files for years and I only casually watched, so she would have countless obscure Dana Scully references to make and all I can remember is that there was cancer and maybe a baby, and she had red hair, and for a season or so said the line, “This cancer is invading my body,” about a hundred times. None of which really applies to Gillian Anderson’s problems here (I hope):

Unless she stayed up all night watching an X-Files marathon, and it turned her into such a paranoid hermit that she couldn’t shop for this premiere, so instead she sloppily pinned up a bedsheet that she hemmed with her teeth. As if we wouldn’t notice, Gillian. The truth IS out there, you know.

Fug or Fab: Luke Perry

People often inquire as to why we don’t feature men as often as women. Our answer is, basically, that as women, we are more attuned to the vagaries of ladies’ fashion, and we can apply our own sensibilities to it — like, how anytime anyone is in a catsuit of some stretchy ilk, we can remember those times when wearing a snap-crotch bodysuit took about fifteen minutes every time we had to go to the bathroom. Menswear isn’t so much our expertise, and also, most dudes wear fairly simple suits and it’s tough to screw that up (although if they do, we are happy to call them out on it).

Luke Perry here apparently decided it was time for people to Sit Up And Take Notice of menswear:

Dylan McKay would take one look at this and wonder if he was in another one of his drug comas; fifteen years ago, Luke Perry would have looked down at himself and thought, “Crap, I HATE the episodes where we go back in time and play people who are not us but who have our faces.” Me, I can’t decide whether to congratulate his inventiveness, or ask where he left his musket.

The Fugiano

I think there are two signs of concern here for Holly Hunter’s mental well-being.

1) What has happened to her face? She looks more like a cross between Kelly Lynch and Joan Allen. Neither of whom are unattractive — they’re both lovely women — but their names are not Holly Hunter, and thus, it’s weird that Holly looks more like them than she does like herself. 
2) At some point on this night, she must have thought to herself, “I want everybody at the Met Opera gala tonight to think that I am wearing a lace curtain over booty shorts.” She’s not — I THINK that opaque panel is a ruffle on the outside of the dress — but the simple fact that she was willing to play along with the illusion makes me wonder if she suffers from Pelvic Eating- Attention Syndrome. It’s really rather sad, to see the way a person’s inconsiderate groin can hijack a room. If you’re looking for a pet cause for your donation dollars, please, give PEAS a chance.


Who doesn’t love Miranda Richardson, if only for how awesome she is as Queen Elizabeth in Blackadder? (Hilarious, and eminently quotable if you haven’t seen it. Also, you need to experience Hugh Laurie threatening to “wreak [his] rewengay” on people, if nothing else.)

But speaking of Queen Elizabeth, shouldn’t someone tell her that her neck ruff has slipped? It seems like the least we could do in return for all the laughs.

She never met a silver metallic mini and a pair of flat sandals she didn’t love.
