Cashmere Mafia Recap: Episode 7, "Dog Eat Dog"

Cashmere Mafia Rundown: Episode 7, "Dog Eat Dog"

So, is this the end of the line for our lovely cashmere-clad mafiosas? Wednesday's episode of Cashmere Mafia was the final one completed before the writers' strike began, and there's been nary a word from ABC about bringing the show back into production. I guess that's no surprise considering its ratings have been somewhere around the Cavemen level, but it would be a bit of a bummer to go out with last night's episode, which clearly wasn't meant to be the ending of anything at all. Could they end on a note of affair, scandal, financial ruin? Nah — just a couple of professional crises and a random dog. Be sure to check out Fab's fashion quiz, and to read my take on what could be the final Mafia, just


  • Mia — It's never a good sign when you feel more attached to the dog you're fostering than to the guy you're dating. Mia getting a dog would be completely ridiculous; I mean, the woman is never home, for one thing. But the adoption interview was actually one of my favorite Mia moments; I loved how the shelter representative picked up on her plastic plants and her large quantity of fur clothing. I can't say I'd miss Jason, even if the show did somehow return. Wiley's a cutie, though.
  • Juliet — After so much good Juliet/Davis drama, this episode didn't move their story forward at all. I found it really hard to care about what was happening; who cares if her company gets bought if we're not around to see the fallout? I did, however, like seeing her shut her suitor down: "How do you tell the man who has everything that he can't have everything?" "You don't." "I think I just did." It was also vaguely interesting to watch her reluctance at mixing business with friendship morph into Eric getting a hotel contract — and to see her annoyance/flirtation with the French hotel owner.
  • Caitlin — Hey, a story that's 100 percent not about Caitliln's sexuality! And one that shows what she actually does for a living! Better late than never, I suppose. She's been made out to be the fizzy, ditzy, awkward one of the bunch, so it was good to see her take control of a bad work situation — first by hiring the Parsons kid and then, when that predictably went south, arranging for a show that truly spotlighted Lily Parish (and, um, nude bodysuits). Hooray for competent Caitlin! Not so hooray: My fear that her boob was going to escape from her dress at any moment while she ran around frantically at fashion week.

  • Zoe — This was Zoe's first attempt at being a stay-at-home mom, and I loved watching her meld her idea of what that kind of woman should do with her corporate mentality — printing out not just one dinner recipe but five; urging her son to do soccer drills rather than just kicking away. Yes, it was all horribly cliched, but Frances O'Connor made it work for the most part (and I hope she really kicked that ball that nailed her ex-boss in the back of the head). As always, things happened a little too fast in this story, but the big reveal of her daughter's alterna-project was sweetly sad. So, what happens to Zoe now?

And that's — literally — all she wrote for Cashmere Mafia. Do you think the show deserves another chance? How would you change it up? Will you miss it if it's gone for good?

i like lipstick more. its low and it discuses important issues. clothes more in tune with women wearabal and classy...their roles are shown individually one by one not all together at once like cashmere where it gives me headaches with so much editing all at once. too much for an eye to handle...and the women are so much rebellious. women are not like that every minute of it. only at a igiven time and irght situation. just like kim ravers point. when women gives a fist...only when they are trying to do their job. just waht i like about lipstick's not all about taking an axe to someone every scene. love lipstick jungle for a great story and heart! very sensitve show! keep supporting this show bec. it's worth it.

Well I like both shows equally, sometimes I like Lipstick Jungle a little more b/c there clothes are more wearable and Nico's young lover is YUUUMY! But maybe cashmere mafia should stay on the air over lipstick jungle b/c more people get to keep their jobs....3 vs. 4?

I hope it comes back. I thought both Cashmere Mafia and Lipstick Jungle would be lame, but since there's been no TV I've watched all the episodes for both shows. I gotta say that I don't like Lipstick Jungle. I just can't relate to any of the characters. I don't find them very likeable. I love all the characters on Cashmere Mafia and there seem to be more storylines, and a better balance between serious and lighter moments.
