Anything that reminds Romeo of Tori Spelling’s classic TV movie Co-ed Call Girl has to be a good thing. And just the description of this one smells like intentional camp. In an upcoming Lifetime original movie, as yet untitled and based on a true story, Cybill Shepherd (The L Word) will play a body waxer in an all-female salon who finds out that her Texas homecoming queen daughter (Jennifer Love Hewitt) is working as a prostitute to make ends meet.
It could be the body waxing detail that makes it read like comedy, but for all we know it’s a tear-jerking drama or urgently topical economic downfall-themed film that’ll require several boxes of tissue. When Cybill’s Mother’s Day gift is bought with trick money, it’ll no doubt pack at least some kind of emotional response from viewers. Stay tuned.
