  • Modelling job gone very, very wrong!!!

    This episode was downright creepy on a number of levels. The main point some would think would be to serve as a PSA about the problems associated with excessive dieting, drug use and how society values appearances.

    All the usual murder suspects are rounded up, but none of them have any evidence to link them to the crime:

    1. The Jealous ex-boyfriend-seems like a no-brainer, but this guy loved the girl who was, not the pretty ad face that she was molded into.

    2. The ex-agent/photographer. The man who made her what she was, an asset to him, who most likely drove her to bulimia, but in the end, didn't hold the smoking gun.

    3. The homeless sister who once was a beautiful model, but lost her mind due to freebasing cocaine and paranoia derived from bulimia.

    The fact that this woman actually had self-mutilated her own face and had binged, purged, enema'd and so forth to drive herself to death makes it all the creepier. I just don't figure how that NASTY RAT got into her digestive tract. YUCK! I could have done with her "ratting herself out" scene. YUCK!!!
