At a family party a while back, my extremely classy auntie was in the kitchen mixing La Croix sparkling water with Svedka and my teenage second cousin pointed at the can and asked, “What’s that?” In the voice of Edina Monsoon, I answered, “La Croix, sweetie, La Croix.” Forty five blankets of HUH covered his face before he asked me, “Why did you call me sweetie?” I told him I was quoting AbFab, duh, and another forty five blankets of HUH covered his face as he asked, “Is that a book or something?” I didn’t know whether to throw up or call CPS to report his mother for under-nourishing his young brain by not teaching him the classics. Well, now that an AbFab movie is finally being made, hopefully it’ll be shown in schools so our youth can learn the wisdom of Patsy and Edina!
After what feels like centuries of talk about the AbFab movie, the AbFab movie has finally started shooting in the South of France. The show’s original cast will shoot for 7 weeks in France and the UK. Jennifer Saunders wrote the script, of course, and the plot goes a little something like this (via E!):
Look for Patsy and Edina, still living the high life you’ve come to know and love. They’re boozing and shopping their way around town, but when they’re blamed for a major incident at big launch party, the two become entangled in a media storm and are hounded by paparazzi. They take off, penniless, to the French Riviera, and plot to make the escape permanent. Look for A-list cameos from actors, musicians and fashion pros.
Thank all the Gods this is happening, because the Internet is seriously dry and hard-up for some new AbFab GIFs. And first we hear that Charo is making a reality show and now this? It’s only Monday and it’s already the happiest news week of the year. But watch, tomorrow the world will show us that it really is an awful place when we learn that Charo’s reality show has been shit canned and Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley have been replaced by Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence in the AbFab movie. Why am I even putting that out there?
