America ruins everything and this is no exception! The American version of the beloved Australian comedy “Kath & Kim” has already shot its first episode. NBC has also bought 7 more episodes bringing its order total to 13 episodes. Molly Shannon plays Kath and Selma Blair plays Kim. Give it a bone, NBC!
NBC might as well just stab me in the heart with Skeletor’s clavicle bone. This is illegal!
I’m not that only one that is shitting mad about this fuckery. Selma Blair spoke to news.com.au about the Australian backlash, “Some people are really protective and horrified that we’re doing it in the United States.”
The crappy US version will take place in a suburb in Florida. It’s the same set-up. Molly will play an overly positive mother and Selma will play her celebrity-obsessed, bitchy daughter.
Selma also claims she gained some weight to play chunky ass Kim, “The joke is I wear the same clothes from when I was 13 and when I sit down there will be a big roll over my shorts and I call myself the hottest thing. There will definitely be the appearance of a thong or two.”
Kath & Kim is the one of the only shows that makes me laugh until I barf. “Cops” is the other show, but for different reasons.
You can already see the Americanization from just the first photo! Molly and Selma are supposed to look frumpy and fugly! They look semi-hot. Epponnee Rae is not happy about this.
