First Look: Odd Mom Out Season Finale Goes Pretty in Pink (PHOTOS)
Pretty in pink! Jill and Andy (Jill Kargman and Andy Buckley, above) channel Andie and Ducky for a John Hughes-themed benefit hosted by their sister-in-law, Brooke, in the Bravo comedy's August 3 season finale. Take a look at photos from the upcoming episode, and then read how Kargman came up with the throwback theme.
What happens in the finale and where are Jill and Andy? What is this dance?
Due to family pressure, Jill and Andy attend the Gala to benefit NACHO (New Yorkers Against Childhood Obesity) which was founded by their sister-in-law Brooke Von Weber to crusade against what she sees as the epidemic plague of fatness. The charity ball, like many benefits, has a theme which is '80s Prom. The dress was John Hughes Black Tie, and everyone in the family plus Brooke's whole clique of pals are there, decked to the nines.
Why did you want to pay homage to Pretty in Pink?
I love John Hughes movies and think they not only emblemize an era but also candidly tap into a vulnerability of those heinous teen years and the insecurities that accompany them. So many movies have teens giving snappy, perfect, overwritten comebacks and lightning-quick zingers; what I loved about Pretty in Pink was that the characters didn't know what to say and we could feel them searching. Hopefully our homage echoes the same awkwardness that can also haunt adults.
