Lipstick Jungle Rundown: Episode Six, "The Lyin', The B*tch, and The Wardrobe"

The latest episode of Lipstick Jungle (and first on Fridays, so here it is if you missed it) brings our friends together for the big opening of Victory's store — which, naturally, threatens to become a disaster. Meanwhile, Wendy starts figuring out her post-Parador plans and Nico gets babies on the brain. To talk about it, just


  • Well, I think it's pretty clear who "the b*tch" of the episode title is. I never warmed up to Dahlia, and I won't miss her, but her deviousness is impressive. Loved her myriad attempts to ruin Victory's show: having only part of the set delivered, blackmailing the models, sending over press kits for Victory Fork.
  • On that note: I know I once said I'd recast Lindsay Price if I could, but I'm enjoying her work as Victory this season. It helps that the writing of her stories has improved, but I'm also getting into her ditzy-but-ruthless-when-it-counts style. I'm sorry, Lindsay.
  • So much good Victory and Joe stuff in this episode! Joe decides to help Victory by pitching a story about himself to Nico; Nico suggests maybe he try just dealing with Victory like a normal person; he heads to a ring store to buy a massive rock.
  • Too bad Victory has another knight in shining toolbelt: Rodrigo builds her a new set, and when he gets Victory's special thanks at the end of the show, Joe flees, ring box and all.
  • But things aren't destined to be with Rodrigo, either, because even while tipsy, Victory realizes that her socialite life will always be a problem for him. Wonder if Joe's surveillance cameras picked up that exchange?
  • What did you think of Victory's clothes? I liked that one purple number, but the wedding dress she so artfully saved with a glass of wine and a paintbrush was just a bit . . . much.
  • Meanwhile, Kirby embarrasses Nico by working at Victory's show. Not exactly the night she had in mind. Finally, he confesses that the photo he sold was to a tabloid and admits that since he's worked all his life, it's going to take a while to get used to having someone around to make his life easy.
  • The state of their relationship is extra-interesting at the moment because Nico's starting to think about having a baby. When she runs into little Charlie on the street, it's like looking at the kid she never had. Megan's suspicious of Nico's generous behavior, but I think Nico's intentions are pure. A box full of memorabilia from Charles is only going to remind Nico of how unfulfilling her marriage was, but in Megan's hands, it can show her son that "his father was an impressive man."
  • Speaking of babies (heh), I loved watching Wendy's reaction to the junior executive at Parador. It doesn't help that she gives exactly the same feedback on Wendy's pitch that her teenage daughter had or that she uses words like "ginormous." She's, in Wendy's words, "a fetus in Ferragamos."
  • But now Wendy has a new passion project: the screenplay by the copy shop girl. Of course Wendy is starting her own production company; I'm surprised she didn't do that the instant she got fired.
  • Fun fact: Wendy got engaged with a plastic ring from a Coney Island vending machine. ("Shut up, it was romantic!" "Yeah, just because the claw didn't pick up a troll doll.")

Loving all the scenes with the three friends lately? Ready to meet Kirby's mom? And what does one do with a 14-carat diamond ring if not proposing with it?

THEY REALLY WANT TO SEE THE RATINGS UP FOR LIPSTICK JUNGLE OR THEY WILL CANCEL IT VERY SOON. WATCH THE SHOW ON TV only! they are not giving it any chances. so it's all up to us and they said it's getting even better and stronger story. WOULD BE A WASTE TO LET GO OF A WOMEN SHOW that is so WONDERFUL for us!

I actually thouhgt the wedding dress was interesting, considering it was a last minute effort. Overall the fashion for the show were decent. I think Nico and Kirby need to talk about where they are seems to me they are just dancing around key relationship issues I'm estastic that Wendy is starting her own production company.....

i'm so glad dahlia is out of the picture. i walked right past where victory ford's store is on greenpoint ave. the other night... thought the area looked familiar when i saw the neighborhood wendy & nico were walking in. good to see wendy back in business mode. as for the nico/griffin set-up, not sure how i feel about that because i really like her & kirby together, but we know that won't last long (and unfortunately from what i'm hearing, neither will the show :()

some women want so much more but this show is simply a good/great show about women just supporting each other. NOTHING BIG BUT NOTHING LESS. TRUE we cannot be all shopping with great clothes but the story shows different situations about lives and an ordinary friendship among the three lead characters. that is how i relate to some of their situation. SEX AND THE CITY was trully fun because friendship is funny most of the time. but LIPSTICK JUNGLE do show more about their struggles at work and business and how they manage their lives around people they love and not going to a morning cafe and talk about their fun lifestyles like in the SEX AND THE CITY. These TWO SHOWS are really different from one another and love them both for it's originalities. HOPE LIPSTCIK JUNGLE will go on. 19,000 fans now on over 1,000 fans added themselves in just less than one week as of today. THIS EPISODE IS GREAT!

I tried watching's just too far-fetched for me. I can't get into it not identifying with a single woman and not really wanting to. Just good to see women in Hollywood working, that's about it.

So glad Wendy is back on the Power Wendy track. I hate sad sack Mom Wendy. She's just so insecure in that role that she creates problems for herself, like last week when she unintentionally lead Dennis on.

I loved this episode. I got so nervous for Victory during her show and I love it when TV makes me feel something. I can't get enough Joe, and I will admit that I started watching LJ because of Andrew McCarthy. He will always be my Blaine, but after giving it a chance, I love Nico and Victory and their stories! Great stuff. I am so not a Brooke Sheilds fan, so I can give or take her, but the show is probably one of my favorites! And I am not a clothes person, but I want everything that Victory has...and Nico.

I loved this episode. God Andrew McCarthy is 5 years older than my dad but he is sooo unbelievably hot. I feel wrong saying it but he is. I normally like Carlos Ponce but I kept screaming for him to leave.

I felt so bad for Joe! You could tell how much he missed her based on how fast he wanted to move forward. The look when she thanked hot Rodrigo... I thought the dress in the picture above was awful! It made her look like a giant marshmallow. Interesting that neither Nico or the mistress got the best of Charles.

i'm soo happy that you LOVED the purple dress since i said that it's my favorite and that i wanted it too! you knew that the copy girl was going to give her a script that 'wowed' her - that was a given...and it's nice to see that she may have work coming along.
