my favorite of the Real Housewives of Beverley Hills is, of course, English Lisa

Lisa Vanderpump with her Daily Mail airs and her very very slightly husked voice bringing to mind the Silk Cut tones of major label press officers i recall from the late Eighties

i also like Kenneth Todd, her leonine, shaggy and admirably emotionally continent husband, who looks like he could be a former member of Procol Harum

now i knew I recognised Lisa's face from somewhere

and of course it's from here

Poison Arrow by SirCumstance

but she also starred in this forgotten folly, Mantrap, "an espionage flavoured musical" constructed as a vehicle for ABC coming off the monster success of Lexicon of Love.... this stilted and silly flick is what Julien Temple did between Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle and Absolute Beginners (meanwhile, in curious symmetry, Malcolm McLaren, who had been ousted from the GRn'RS director's chair, ends up globetrotting in the company of Lexproducer Trevor Horn)
