Pairs Division: McPhee and Hilty

Posted on January 07, 2013

Is anyone excited about the return of the revamped Smash! to our TVs again?


Oh, we’re bitches, but you know we’ll tune in, if only to see what changes were made to a show that desperately needed some changes. Two things they didn’t need to change:


Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty attend 2013 Winter TCA Press Tour in Pasadena, California to promote their show “Smash.”

Rebecca Taylor Python-Print Cap-Sleeve Dress

The “good girl vs. bad girl” storyline with their characters was tired and played out before it even got started, but they’re both extremely talented performers. Sure, McPhee could use a charisma transplant, but she’s just fine when she sings. If the show’s any good, we might go back to reviewing it on the regular.

Anyway, from the left:

SHE: Looks horrid. We suppose we should thank her for allowing us to use the word “horrid” appropriately, but we’re just gonna be the bitches you all know and love. Hair? Terrible. Dress? Bad, but not as bad as the hair. Shoes? The worst things in the world. Seriously, those things make us cringe. She clearly has no gays. You don’t want to wear the bone-killing stilettos? We’re right there with you. But there are better alternatives in flat, comfy footwear than this. Practically anything would be better than this. We might even let a pair of Uggs pass (not really).  Also: her makeup is pretty bad. It looks like it was applied under a fluorescent light in a public restroom somewhere off the interstate. Come on now, honey. You’ve got a show to sell. Time to consult the gays. Score: 1.5/10.

SHE: Has the biggest shit-eating grin on her face because she knows damn well she won this round. And she didn’t even try that hard. The dress is okay. It suits and flatters her. We dig the sheer hose but don’t like them paired with peep-toes. North of the neck, she’s got Bump-it hair, underplayed eyes, and Barbie lips, none of which appear to be the best choices with a dark, monochromatic outfit. Let’s see those eyes and lips pop next time, dear. Score: 6/10.

Combined Score: 3.75/10. Yikes. That may actually be a record. Hilty? Feel free to start a hair-pulling fight right there on the step-and-repeat.
