Marina Gulping down a bowl of salad? Sveta looks shocked!
I was reading throught the blog comments this morning and fans of the blog have made a special request. They wanted me to capture Marina eating at Renata's after show party. As you call, in episode 11 Perestroika, Marina does not attend Renata's play "Demon," but shows up to "pig out" on the food at the party. While I was busy taking notes, so I could do a recap of the episode, I entirely missed the "gluttonous" segment, where Marina wolfs down a bowl of "salad." Some kindly readers pointed it out to me and I went back to watch today. I know you are dying for a close-up so here it is, but brace yourself:
This is actually the second on camera "mouthFULL" she takes
I took the opportunity to also watch the argument that ensued after the "eating," where Marina launches a full scale, no holds barred, attack, on Sveta and ruins Renata's party by once again having no self control. Marina thinks everything is about her and does not know how to behave in public. Quite unbecoming of a "socialite" whouldn't you say? Please take NOTE of the man right next to Marina in the picture!
He sure for an "earFULL!" He looks in pain!
Now you tell me, who in their right mind would do a talk show around that voice? The mere idea of it is preposterous! I wonder if the writers and producers, having 20/20 hindsight, want to kick themselves for selecting her out of hundreds of applicants? Was having Rasputin as a backdrop really worth it? In my opinion, no, but what do I know? As for Marina? Let her do what she does best...eat cake!
PS Marina, please listen to the Countess Luann's song "Money Can't Buy You Class" over and over until it sinks in. Even the song helps even one person, it will be worth it. Here is the link, you can listen between bites of cake: Money CAN'T Buy You Class Have a good listen!
