I feel like it’s been ages since I last heard about Lucy Liu. (I’m still mourning the end of Cashmere Mafia, mostly because there are so few shows with an Asian heroine, and also because we loved seeing Jack Yang on screen!) But apparently, Liu’s been busy!
Lucy Liu is back with the two-episode romantic comedy, Marry Me, on Lifetime tonight, December 12, starting at 9 pm. Liu stars as Rae Ann Carter, an aspiring artist-slash-social worker who is a hopeless romantic, on the constant look out for her fairy tale ending. It’s clearly not working out with her commitment-phobe boyfriend Adam (Bobby Cannavale), so she dumps him, only to meet a new guy, Luke (Steven Pasquale), who proposes after a few short dates. Well, when it rains, it pours. Not only does a third guy enter the picture, but Adam returns with a proposal of his own. Every girl’s fairy tale come true? I think so.
Thankfully, the advance word on the mini-series is good, so hopefully this will launch Liu into a regular series. And whether you’re a chick flick person or not, this sounds like the perfect guilty pleasure on a cold winter night. Get your cup of tea or hot cocoa, curl up and relish in your little-girl-Cinderella fantasies.

I remember religiously watching Project Runway with my fashion-forward friend and talking about it the following afternoon during our AP Art History class in high school. (In fact, Anthony, if you are reading this, this is dedicated to you). I’ve unfortunately been out of the loop with reality TV, but will be making time to tune in for the return of fashion divas and divos, Tim Gunn’s famous pursed-finger-tapping-on-lips, and the origin of East Coast fabulousity we call New York.
Project Runway returns to Lifetime on July 29 (that’s tonight!) for season 8!
And this time, PR is featuring 30-year-old Ivy Higa. Originally from Seoul, and later relocated to New York via Hawaii (whew!), Higa has made it as a contestant for this season’s show. With Asian-inspired pieces, the collection she presented during the casting call was a wardrobe full of versatile, Japanese-inspired pieces and even a new print that was inspired by spattered blood. She says her inspirational designers, Issey Miyake and Consuelo Castiglioni, have had a significant impact in her work and is a self-proclaimed scarf, bag and pocket junkie.
She may seem soft-spoken but there’s a fierceness and coolness to her work. So for all you fashion-starved Heidi Klum-ites, be sure to tune in for the season premiere tonight!
