Look who's talking

CHANCED upon a copy of TV And Entertainment Times (remember that little title?) the other day, and couldn't help but be drawn to Phoebe Liu's television column, the one which ended on a weekly basis with the words 'if you ask me'.

The same words, of course, that have ended Libby Gelman-Waxner's massively popular If You Ask Me column in Premiere magazine for years. Imitation may well be the sincerest form of flattery, Phoebe, but you'll only really be talking if you can come up with something to rival Libby's '[Demi Moore] may in fact be the first actress to use movies as a stepping-stone to modelling' or 'Jennifer begged me to take her to The Karate Kid III, but I explained that if I did, the government could legally place her with foster parents'.

If you ask us.
