You know the only thing better than Lifetime: Television for Women specials? Lifetime: Television for Women specials about prostitution! Coed Call Girl. Fighting for my Daughter. Judicial Indiscretion. Sex and Mrs. X. Human Trafficking. The only thing I find MORE empowering than watching Tori Spelling’s character have awkwardly staged sex on a piano would be if she did it with an eating disorder and a brain tumor.
And in the new Jennifer Love Hewitt movie The Client List she plays a prostitute who whores herself out so her family can have Christmas presents. Because she’s a mom, okay!? She has to do really degrading things like wear pigtails. And then she has to turn in her client list to avoid going to jail! Because she apparently went to Kay Jewelers and bought herself a necklace?
Oh, Jennifer Love Hewitt, this almost makes up for The Audrey Hepburn Story (wherein Jennifer Love Hewitt switches Audrey Hepburn’s accent no fewer than 4 times, and at one point just sounds like she has a bunch of marshmallows lodged in her mouth in what I imagine was an Eliza Doolitle attempt by the director).
The Client List is on July 19th at 9PM. You can watch the incredibly gripping trailer here. And until the 19th, I think we should all keep our fingers crossed for the eating disorder/brain tumor/prostitute trifecta.
And, because I can’t embed The Client List trailer, here’s a clip from Coed Call Girl that reminds you that all you need to be a high class call girl is a haircut and an 80′s music montage:
