I don't know why I'm eager to alert the TV-viewing masses (read: mothers), but the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is hitting the catwalk at 9 tonight on Channel 13.
What's the big whoop? Well, interestingly enough, a few years ago, I remember overhearing another mom at my son's soccer game lament that she caught her older son watching the "fashion show," which was definitely not showcasing sweats and sneakers, and told him to turn it off. She thought it was a bit too risque for a teen.
Fast forward to 2006, and we moms - and dads - know there's a lot worse stuff out there than Gisele Bundchen prancing around in a fur-trimmed bra and panties.
Anyway, one thing to keep in mind: Because KOVR, the local CBS affiliate, has an early prime time, that's why the show is on at 9 in Sacramento rather than at 10 p.m., which it will be for most of the country.
Don't fret, though, because it's not just girls, girls, girls. Justin Timberlake also is performing on what is being dubbed the "sexiest night on television."
For those who can't wait: Through the magic of the Internet, the Victoria's Secret Web site, has a sneak-peek video so you can see what they're doing with lace this year.
On a more decorative note, Ricky Lauren, wife of American fashion designer Ralph Lauren, will join Martha Stewart (shown right/photo courtesy of Anders Krusberg/MSLO) on her show at 9 a.m. Wednesday, also on Channel 13.
This will be the first-ever television appearance for Ricky, and the plan is for her to chat about the birth of the Lauren clothing line and then share dining/decor tips from her new book, "Cuisine, Lifestyle & Legend of the Double RL Ranch."
Just imagine: A husband who fills his wife's wardrobe with fabulous clothes - every day! And she still finds time to whip up a meal.
