"Designing Women" reboot in the works

Recommended Posts

AFAIC anything that gets Bloodworth-Thomason's singular voice back on TV is a net plus.

 

Her editorial in THR about Moonves and how all the female stars and shows were taken down in the halls of CBS just brings it home - how many essential stars, comediennes, creatives did we lose from the mainstream current of popular culture in the last 30+ years because men drove them out? We only know a handful of stories since Weinstein blew up, like hers, like Annabella Sciorra, Illeana Douglas, etc. And how many more in the century before that? It is a cultural wound. And it can be slowly rehabilitated.

Just think, Charlene's daughter Olivia turned thirty on the first. ("The first day of the last decade of the twentieth century.")

And now that I've looked it up, Lexi Randall ("Randa Oliver") is 40. She was born on the first day of the next to last decade of the twentieth century. Which means Mrs. Oliver got a visit from Barbara Mandrell, I guess.

😆 She's my age. My parents said that I was absolutely obsessed with Barbara Mandrell and The Mandrell Sisters when I was little. I would sit right in front of the TV and be dead silent for the entire show, just staring. I especially loved the flashbacks to the younger versions of themselves.
