And I bet she's still on the Coke.
When DEVO appeared on ’80s sitcom, Square Pegs (which starred Sarah Jessica Parker), they whipped everyone—from the censors to the actresses—into a frenzy. On the episode, the band headlines a “New Wave Bat Mitzvah.” Tame stuff, but behind the scenes—safe from the gaze of its teeny-boppin’ following—it was pretty wild.
“The girls were out of control—they were doing drugs and they were making out and they were coming on to us in a big way,” says Gerald V. Casale, DEVO bassist/synthesizer player. The musician vaguely recalls doing coke with Jami Gertz and SJP in the talent trailers. “They might have been 15 or 16, but in their heads they were already 40. I don’t think there was a virgin on the set, except maybe a couple of the guys,” he adds.
Despite the backstage debauchery, the censors weren’t about to let anything salacious hit the airwaves. Case in point: They nixed the video projection that DEVO put together to accompany “That’s Good.” In the video, “Bob [Casale] is being ridden like a horse by a blonde,” explains Casale. “Then an animated french fry flies through the air one way, and an animated glazed donut flies through the air the other way, and the french fry goes through the donut, and it cuts to the girl snapping her head back with a big smile on her face on the words, ‘That’s good.’”
Casale was bummed that the video didn’t make primetime, but that wasn’t his only regret after filming the famous episode: He had the hots for Jami Gertz, who played Bat Mitzvah girl Muffy Tepperman. “Why didn’t I do something about that?” he says
Probably explains why she's so horsey and haggard looking.
eat a hot bowl of dicks.
Wasn't SJP a majority vote for a blind recently about an actress who does coke because her husband is gay? Ding ding ding!
Hell is empty, and all the devils are here
Someone on here also had a first-hand story about SJP doing coke. I didn't think she'd been at it since she was 15 though. thats just sad.
I loved that show. She has unique features for sure I like that in people.
My grace is sufficient for you, for my my strength is made perfect in weakness...I love you dad!
I love the way she looks--different, sure, but always interesting. She has the hair I always wanted (when she lets it go curly).
I still remember the Square Pegs theme song, by the Waitresses, I think.
Square pegs, square pegs, square...square PEGS!
One size does not fit all.......
Santa is an elitist mother fucker -- giving expensive shit to rich kids and nothing to poor kids.
Judging by the looks of her the effects haven't warn off yet.
