Love this quote from Kelly's interview when talking about Hope and Faith:
“I absolutely loved playing that role. I could bring everything I knew about the world of soap opera to it, but the character was so juicy! We’ve all met people who are that self-involved. It doesn’t really matter what you’re saying. They’re only waiting for you to stop talking to tell you what they think.
“There’s something very compelling about that level of narcissism and it was so liberating to never have to be nice.”
Seems like that role really wasn't acting from what I see her do on Live! Sounds like Kelly during host-chat and interviews that I see!
That interview just seemed very staged and fake IMO. Whenever Kelly talks without planning answers or thinking she is being quoted, she rips her mom for being neurotic and mocks her constantly. I wonder if her people told her that she sounds like she has major mommy issues, so she made her little statements about her mom and dad when answered. When she speaks normally, and not in an interview, she always brags about Mark's parents as if they are her's, she never even mentions seeing her family at all. I don't care if she has issues, many people do have issues with their families, it just weird hearing her constantly mock her mom, or seem to blame her for things she didn't do, and then suddenly gush over her.
I also have to laugh when Kelly says that she worries about being out of money because she was an actor. She obviously has been out of touch from her teen years. She got a job in high school on a dance show, and went right onto a soap right after. She has no clue about what struggling is, and what real actors go through from what I see.
It's no wonder she loves reality tv, and they 'stars', she can relate. IMO she is talentless and just very bold, and was bold from childhood, and got roles because she thinks she just can be over the top, and has confidence in spite of her lack of any real ability, that is what I see reality idiots do, so she fits right ino the era now.
The population of Banff is approx 8,000 but it is an international destination so the population on any given day could be in the 10s of thousands. Think Vail or Aspen only set in a National Park so more protected and beautiful. The people who live in Banff are very fortunate indeed, and many come from around the world for the opportunity to live and work there. In fact, you cannot live there if you do not have a reason to reside (job). And as mentioned, Calgary is a large city of one million just an hour away.
WellI don't find Vail or Aspen desirable locations to vacation either, so Banff wouldn't appeal to me. I have limited vacation, and I would not want to hang in a place full of snow in April. Just l ike Kelly, I like the warmth, but I don't have the luxury going on multiple vacations. I also see enough snow in a normal winter, I don't need to pay money to see it in the spring. I just don't find national parks, with bears as fun vacation spots, and I also don't want to freeze skiing on any vacation. I think it's wonderful for people who are outdoors types, but now me.
But as much as I wouldn't go there, I would have liked to have seen Kelly show us around the town, or tell us about the town, and show us what does go on there, instead of seeing her skiing with Markie so we can see her show off because she went down a big hill! I also wish that chef could have had some spotlight and we could have found oout about his restaurants, instead of having Kelly show off again, and go around pawing at the young chefs and make perverted comments. That was just insulting to the chefs and the hard work, as was her dipping that nice dessert in the cheese. She must be serious when she says it's fun to be narcissistic, since she does it so well IMO.
