A lot like Curb Your Enthusiasm (without all the F-bombs)
8 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

The premise is a lot like Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiam", following the 'homelife' of a celebrity that's star has tarnished a bit over the years and their bid to get back into the limelight.

It's obviously trying (desperately) to parody Kirstie's attempts to get back into television, find a man, and deal with her weight.

The show is rife with fat jokes, from Kirstie cursing a fast food joint for forgetting her fries to the stereotype that black men like big, white booty.

It was a relief to see that the show has toned down language moreso than Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm". I'm no prude but I do cringe at hearing the f-bomb multiple times for no particular reason. This is one redeeming quality.

It'll take a few more episodes to really give it a more complete comment. If you're looking for some cheap laughs and less f-bombage, check it out.
