Hooker Wardrobe on Network Television

Hey All! I am so sorry I've basically taken the summer off. I kept escaping the oppressive humidity of Atlanta for the cool breezes of New England, where I watched little to no television (can you believe it?). Of course, this resulted in huge Bravo binges on my DVR whenever I got home. The DVR was bursting with real housewives and oh lord, I've forgotten what else.

In other news, I ate so much lobster and pie and ice cream while wearing beach cover ups and leggings and elastic shorts, that I didn't realize that none of my pants fit until I got home a week or so ago. Thus, in an act of pure desperation, I ordered up Nutrisystem. Hmmm, how can food with "beef" and "chicken" be just fine for years without refrigeration? Major amounts of sodium. I think I'm going through about two gallons of water per day! But I did this to myself, so I shall suffer. God forbid I actually go to the gym or something. It is a bit scary that little packets that resemble those silica packets you find in purses that say "DO NOT EAT" all over them are packed in with the muffins, but whatever!

Anyway, watching The Mentalist last night (based on the commercials during the show, I think I am the only Mentalist viewer who does NOT have erectile dysfunction), I burst out laughing when I saw the hookers on the show. I wonder if the wardrobe people get in hysterics when they have to dress these characters. It always involves fishnets, silver, lucite, exposed breastesses,  shoes and wigs. Check out the Pretty Woman they came up with for last night's episode:

 

Those CBI agents and this lady of the night were moving too quickly for me to get a good shot, but you get the idea. Her name was Sugar.  Don't these wardrobe people watch those HBO specials about Hunt's Point? Or would more realistic ho wear be too much for CBS's  Cialis targeted audience to handle? At any rate, it would be hilarious to compile images of hooker characters across time. I'm not talking Jane Fonda in Klute or Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. I'm talking about prime time procedural drama  hos. I'm going to start.
