Hot in ClevelandThe pitch for Hot In Cleveland? The show revolves around three fabulous L.A. women of a certain age (best friends) whose lives are changed forever when their plane — headed to Paris for a girls-only celebration — unexpectedly lands in Cleveland, Ohio and they soon rediscover themselves in a new ‘promised land’. Loving their new home, the women find themselves living under one roof and battling the sassy caretaker (Betty White) of the property they have rented. We get it: They’re not spring chickens. So why did someone spend so much time airbrushing the ad? In the advertisement, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves are glowing; their skin has been rendered absolutely flawless. No deep lines, no wrinkles. The show could be about three thirty-something women. The age has been Photoshopped right out. In reality, These women’s ages are 49, 50 and 59. Betty White is 88. Hot in Cleveland ladiesThese are some beautiful women who have a few creases on their faces — why erase those war wounds, laugh lines, markings of experience? Especially for a show about older women? Look, either way, it’s fair to say they’d be hot in any town. It’s just strange how “smoothing” is supposed to be an improvement. Frankly, Malick, 59, looks better in her Wikipedia photo than she does in the ad — the preternatual plane of her face in the ad is vampire-like and bloodless. BREAKING: Folks are not going to faint or hemorrhage if they see some damn crow’s feet. Ease up on the smoothing! Even poor Betty White has been airbrushed — her skin is wrinkle-free and smooth as a baby’s bottom. Betty White wrinklesNewsflash! We know Betty has wrinkles! It’s part of what we love about her. It’s just strange that the industry feels the American public needs to be protected from the harsh realities of what happens to women when they age. As if we don’t have mirrors! Article by Jezebel
