Did Any ’80s Celebrity Not Have An “I’m Better Than You” Video?

Okay, WHAT IS WITH all these videos of famous women in the ’80s demonstrating their beauty routines, taking bubble baths, and smugly demonstrating their fabulousness under the guise of “helping” others? First, there was Vanna White’s terribly smug instructions on why we should all be as thin as she is, then the archeologists found Angela Lansbury rubbing lotion on her skin, and today Everything Is Terrible brings us actress Donna Mills talking makeup tips and pretending to answer the phone in her favorite puffy ’80s outfits. I think we all need to call our parents tonight and ask them wtf was going on with that decade.


It was clear from the Vanna video that she was the inspiration for Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP empire, but I think it’s time to bring these back, and I think I know of just the guy to do the first in the series: DIDDY.
