I can't believe I'm posting about her. She was kind of on my "blacklist" — I've made no bones about how much this woman irks me. But then I saw her on Leno...
(YouTube has since removed the video)
For once, she seemed like a human being and she was dressed in a very classy way, unlike her usual angry transvestite look.
So then I watched "Coming to America", which NBC kindly posted on their website.
She was extremely rude to her wannabe personal assistant, when she complemented her on her high heels, and said "You should get some! The DMV part was hiLARious! That was the same office I went to get my California driver's license back in the day. They weren't that friendly to me... maybe you have to be famous for them to crack a smile.
The British are usually nice and normal, but VB is so self-obsessed I couldn't believe it. The only time I felt sympathy for her was when she was surrounded by all those Beverly Hills wives and they started talking about money... perhaps she still remembers a time before the Spice Girls and a more average existence, who knows.
All in all it was quite surreal. If you haven't seen it, head to NBC.com. Alternately, they're reshowing it Thursday evening 10pm. It's like a trainwreck, except with better clothes and makeup.
