The First 'Wives Club

Episode 12:'s Editor tries to decide which Vegas event was more shocking -- Gretchen's performance or Briana's wedding?

May 1, 2012

Finally Cats. By the time you read this blog, Gretchen's Pussycat Dolls performance will have been unveiled. But let's start at the very beginning (which is a very good place to start) for this recap, shall we?

Cat of Nine Tails
And so the night opens with Gretchen in outfit and role numero uno. She must open the evening by introducing the Pussycat Dolls performance, which in itself is no small feat. And she nails this one with ease. Robin (and our good buddy choreographer from last week) loved it. And you know who else loved things -- the 'Wives and their gents! They all seemed pretty pleased with the performance (and front row view) they had of the PCD action. Particularly Tamra, who can now finally persue a career as a gynecologist

And then it's fever time. Robin Antin gives her notes up to the last second, and Gretchen worries she didn't have enough time to learn the number.

Here's the truth: Gretchen looked uber-foxy, and, sure her voice might not have been Christina-caliber, but did the best with what she could. And I do think she worked that crowd (and that carousel horse) to the best of her ability. So, go Gretchen!
