Finally, a show about "real girls" just like you and me! When the grind on those Lifetime Movie sets gets too hectic, we like to escape to our Malibu pad and unwind! We carry wicker baskets into organic fields and clip herbs for our lo-cal salads and homemade facial scrubs! We invite personal trainers over for a private workout with our besties! But most of all we film the whole thing and talk to the camera as if you, the viewer, really are our number one BFF!
Such is the sacrifice Haylie Duff is making for us, allowing us into her modest SoCal life for but a half hour a week. She's an actress, as she points out quite a bit ("I was filming a movie in Louisiana..."). She's also the older sister of the Duff you have actually heard of, Hilary, who makes a special appearance on the debut episode.
Real Girl's Kitchen is all about her life, but it's on the Cooking Channel, so it's mostly about what she ingests in said life. She, like, tries to be good, but goddamnit, people keep putting key lime pies in front of her. What's a girl to do? Naughty! Her friends tag along and whine when she serves them vegan crap. When can we get to the wine? They ask. I mean come on! Why do you have to be so good all the time?
These gals are so incorrigible with their sneaky caloric intake that I'm expecting (nay, hoping) that Satan himself makes an appearance next week and whips their naked butts in the flames of hell, Ronnie James Dio style. Did I see you eat a s'more on your private Malibu beach?! MMmwhahaaaaa! [whip crack].
Cooking Channel, you've got a keeper.
