Little correction Karen was born in 1945 not 1955
If she tested the first time maybe she could get the role would be nicer than an extreme deaging
Well Judy sounds right but Susan I don't know anyway it's hard not to think of Nicole as a Brunette
I don't remember being bothered by it very much but I do remember it being very trendy. The covers certainly evoke that: this is the Rachel cut with Melrose Place Sydney Season 5 collection of over-the-top little-girl hair accessories.
I remember really liking the Ali story. It was working a lot better than it had any right to and as you say, it had a more serious undertone than it looked outwardly. With enough comedy that it wasn't depressing.
Whatever happened to that actress?
I thought Roark and Christie had good chemistry (she never has with Austin Peck), but the Mike and Carrie story was probably too overextended. I remember Ali getting some attention at the time because the character was very extreme but not as much in the campy Reilly way, in a more grisly way, like the scene where she tried to kill herself and wrote Mike's name on the wall in blood. There was also the fantasy scene, which was posted here a few times, with Carrie as a real life Barbie doll, ending in Ali choking her out.
The platinum blond bob is the start of the problem. It's acceptable but looks very unhealthy. My true problem is when she dyes her hair a muddy brown color and adds bangs that always look greasy.
this whole situation but it looked 10 times worse on the show.
I remember sparkly bobby pins and clips and just her hair was a weird mess for those years. Photos are truly not capturing what it was.
