    Every time I look at Jessica Lange I wonder what the hell she did to her looks. She looks so old now, and is 3 years younger than Sarandon. I don't get such vanity or insecurity or both.

    I'm trying and am excited to see Judy Davis. Jessica Lange is Frances Farmer and Patsy Cline, both flawless. But I'm not feeling her Joan. I had to turn the sound down on CZJ.

    Susan is Bette. I'm not seeing Joan yet. Just Jessica.

    Kathy Bates sounded like Joan Blondell. Great casting.

    I thought it had some real LOL moments. I'm loving this so far.

    Jessica isn't quite Joan yet to me either, but she's entertaining nonetheless.

    Jessica isn't Joan yet to me either. Not as much as Faye Dunaway was Joan in "Mommie Dearest".

    Best line, I thought, was when the gardeners were wanting to get paid and Joan didn't have the money and her assistant said "I told them it was an honor to trim Ms. Joan's bush."

    ETA: Betty Davis' daughter, B.D. is being played by Kiernan Shipka!

    ^OMG, I laughed at that and I loved Jessica/Joan's silent reaction to it.

    I also lol'd at the dialog where they discuss casting Hepburn instead, and I immediately thought, oh my God they don't mean Katharine...Audrey! And Doris Day. Can you imagine? I would love to have seen that movie.

    I played a little game with myself wondering who dlisted's Hot Slut of the Day would be, and wasn't disappointed:

    Hot Slut Of The Day!

    Mamacita (as played by Jackie Hoffman) from FX’s Feud!

    Ryan Murphy said a while ago that Feud: Bette and Joan isn’t going to be just a camp extravaganza that’ll give drag queens much, much more material. There was a touch of that in last night’s premiere episode, but the camp was pretty much turned all the way down and I kept patiently waiting for Joan Crawford to rage scream her lush dog tail brows off after finding out that her dressing room didn’t have a tiny refrigerator filled with vodka, lemons, witch hazel and ice. (Joan’s bathroom had a refrigerator in it and it was always filled with a bowl of ice, lemons, witch hazel and a bottle of vodka. No, she didn’t use those ingredients to make herself a delicious witch hazel-tini. The ice, lemons and witch hazel were part of her daily beauty rituals and the vodka was her liquid Xanax.)

    So far, Jessica Lange’s Joan Crawford is very “Jessica Lange with stick-on brows” and Susan Sarandon’s Bette Davis is very “Susan Sarandon trying to do a voice impersonation of the kid from Manchester By The Sea,” but I’m still into it. And for me, the best part of last night’s episode (besides seeing hot daddy Stanley Tucci, who spit out the cunt word on basic cable, getting a rubdown) was Broadway actress Jackie Hoffman as MAMACITA!

    Mamacita was Joan Crawford’s maid/lady-in-waiting/confidante/personal assistant. Mamacita was ride or die for Joan all the way. She wouldn’t just hold Joan’s purse, she’d also Crisco up her face and go after a trick for Joan. Vanity Fair points out that Joan wrote about Mamacita in her “lifestyle manual” from 1971 titled My Way of Life. Joan said that Mamacita became her devoted maid after she called a neighbor saying that she needed help with cleaning her house in Westhampton. The neighbor put their maid on the phone and the maid suggested her mom. Even though her nickname was “Mamacita,” Mamacita was about as Hispanic as bratwurst. She was a German grandmother. Joan explained Mamacita’s nickname like this:

    “The next morning I was on the phone when they arrived. I turned for a moment and said, ‘Start in my bedroom and have her work her way through the other bedrooms and then down here,’ and then I went back to the phone. When I hung up I wanted to call her to come quickly to take the dogs out but I realized that I hadn’t asked her name. I had just returned from Rio de Janeiro, where all I had heard was mamacita, papacita, cousincita, everythingcita, so without thinking I called out, ‘Mamacita!’ Back she cried, ‘Ya! Ich comming!’ The name has stuck ever since.”
    I can’t wait to call my cousins, “cousincita.” And I’m surprised that in the first episode, Joan doesn’t call Bette, “bitchcita,” or “cuntcita.”

    Err, either Joan was bullshitting, or she was only surrounded by Spanish-speaking people in the Portuguese-speaking country of Brazil, or she was really in a Spanish-speaking country and just thought she was in Brazil. Who knows! But here’s a picture of the real Mamacita with Joan Crawford:


    And on last night’s episode, there’s a scene where Mamacita tells Joan, who is going broke, that the gardeners haven’t been paid for a while and they have this little exchange:






    Here’s to Mamacita, and more moments where Mamacita makes us think about Joan Crawford’s crotch shrub![COLOR=#666666 !important]

    i don't know if jessica, susan, kathy or catherine are giving good impressions of their characters, i don't think i've seen a movie with any of them but i've heard references to joan and bette for years yet never knew they were sisters until this series came out. i've not seen 'whatever happened to baby jane' but i'll have to watch it after this. i think it'll be more interesting after learning the back story.

    just the premise of the story sounds so good with these two ultra famous actresses in old hollywood and their stormy relationship that's so hostile they make each other's skin crawl. aside from the drama, it's historical hollywood, and that alone makes it interesting.

    plus i love all things ryan murphy so if he brings it, i'll watch it.

    i thought kathy and catherine looked great.

    jessica, susan and kathy are 3 of my favorite actresses so i'll probably love this.
