Katharine is "working on herself," according to <a href="http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/05/24/D8HQ4R781.html" target="_blank">this</a> AP story:
<i>McPhee fan Tess Kleinhammes was upset at Cowell's statement.
"I didn't think that was fair at all," said the 13-year-old, who had flashed a sparkly sign in support of McPhee. "I think Katharine is better than Taylor. She's one of my role models."
When told about Tess' support of her, McPhee said, "I love being a role model. It's still a man's world in society." Her advice: "Girls should keep working on themselves."
Which, she said, she's done herself.
<b>"I've been through many therapy sessions ... It's an ongoing struggle to work on myself." </b> </i>
--God bless her and all, but it�s gotta be tough to be so beautiful AND talented, right?
My imagined counseling session:
<b>Katharine:</b> �Doctor, I have a bad self-image. What can I do about that?�
Male Counselor:</b> �Did you say something? I was too busy staring into your doe eyes, mesmerized by your lovely cheekbones and flowing hair.�
<b>Katharine:</b> �I�m already feeling better, but may need to come back for many therapy sessions��
Goin' to the Way Back Machine to pull up this comment, which I was thinking about while watching the premiere of Smash
on nbc.com. I'm happy that McPhee has found a suitable vehicle for her talents. The show seems promising. It has everything that annoys me about Glee
, but it has a seriousness and relatability (is that a word?) for people who are ... ummm, grown-ups, rather than teens. So score one for Smash
. It might be all downhill from here, but the premiere's a'ight.
