Ladies and gentlemen…it’s here. I can faintly hear the music and the crescendo of the big drum…bah-bah-bah-buh-Bahhhhh…boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom (you get the idea, right?) It’s time for the eagerly anticipated Charm School 3 with Ricki Lake. And since we ALL suffered through the abysmal last half of Rock of Love Bus and the first few episodes of Daisy of Love, its back on the express train to hell with all of these trashy ladies. And – to be clear – I use the term “ladies” with extreme hesitation. THANK GOD.
Try as I might I was unable to download or view the episode on VH1.com in advance with my lame-o dial up service to have this ready early Tuesday morning, I had to tape it and watch the show this afternoon (after my son’s kindergarten orientation) the old fashioned way. The bottom line is that I probably shouldn’t have taped it because I have, no lie, 12 sheets of paper with chicken-scratch notes on them. I think I need my head examined.
All I can say is…HELLS BELLS ya’ll – the boozy bitch-fest is back and in full effect on Charm School 3 – ROL/RCOL Edition. Maybe!!!! I don’t want to set my sights too high or I might be traumatically disappointed by the time this season is over and may never watch another VH1 Whoreality show again. Who am I kidding? I’ll be there with notebook in hand!
There are intros of each girl and the reasons why they need Charm School. They meet Ricki Lake and are let loose in the mansion where the booze is fast and loose – just like most of the women. They are introduced to the “Deans” of Charm School and the premise of the season – help yourself by helping others. In all honestly, it’d be nice to see some of these skanks transform into respectable human beings…but will they be as much fun? Time will tell.
There is arguing, fighting, drinking, girl-on-girl action, sloppy drunks, an expulsion…and this is all within the first ½ hour. YAY! I know I shouldn’t say it aloud, but my hopes are ridiculously high…and so are Gia, Beverly and Marcia. They show the girls donating some of their belongings to charity and they are told that there is a Dean’s List and Detention. In a new twist on the show, the girls in detention will nominate fellow detainees to be called onto the carpet for elimination – and that should probably sound appealing to Farrah, since she likes making out with other girls!!! The girls nominate 3 girls for expulsion and Ricki makes the ultimate decision on who goes home.
I won’t ruin it for you by telling you who stays and who goes until I take this show to the forums for the full recap, but the scenes for the upcoming season look pretty decent and I can only hope that this show lives up to my expectations. See you in the forums…
