Isn’t this a great picture of Candy? She slayed it as the Mother of the House of Wintour, when she debuted The House if Wintour. I have to remember – was Anna Wintour as high profile and revered in 1992? I keep on thinking that came later, but I am not really certain. But anyway, it made for good drama. Candy crushed.
Int his episode, we also see Patti Lupone’s character get introduced. She is Ms. Frederica Norman, who I see as kind of a Leona Helmsley type of character, real estate mogulesse, but maybe Frederica is just a tad shadier. She rents Bianca the storefront where she could could operate her own salon, and then we get a trans problem. Frederica doesn’t clock it at first, but her son does, and she tries to rescind the deal, but Bianca starts fighting back. My favorite scene is a tender one between Bianca and Angel where the latter tries to give Bianca fashion and make up tips so she looks more ‘convincing.’
The rest we get some drama, and realizations on how to deal with the AIDS crisis, which would have been in full boil at that time.
