OK, so the Pauley/Abby hair … what? Situation? Disaster? Controversy? I’ll go with “thing” - there are three possibilities being mentioned:
What do you think?
Here are my thoughts:
This is a chance to raise awareness and possibly bring US product standards up to those of European countries. The reaction is to a particular chemical (Para-Phenylenediamine (PPD)) which is banned in many EU countries. I’m guessing that they still find a way to color their hair in Europe, yes? So the US could, and should, do the same.
I’ve been sitting on the fence myself - should I keep dying my hair auburn or let it grow out with, hopefully, a “wise woman” look that is about 2/3rd medium brown and 1/3rd gray. My roots look sort of frosted with silver and there are shocks of gray at my temples. So I’m thinking now, since my scalp, neck and upper back are itchy for a day or two afterwards, that I’m going natural.
[Dear Anon, to save you from writing me to ask for a third time, I am 53. My hair is to my mid-back and I have bangs.]
Blah, blah, blah. OK, back to Abby
Some of us have been commenting about how there wasn’t much of a storyline for her last season. I think that letting her go blonde could become part of a transformation story arc for Abby. Pauley herself has said that Abby doesn’t age and is like an anime. I’d like to see her re-think parts of herself and her life.
I’m guessing in the show she is around McGee’s age, which is 36ish. That’s a time in life when a woman without children wonders if she does want to be a mom and she realizes that time for that is limited. With McGee wanting to move in with Delilah and Jimmy becoming a dad, Abby could start to think about it too.
Anyway, my thought is, put Pauley in a wig while the blonde grows out, then have Abby appear as if she made the sudden change to blonde.
But YOU, what do YOU think???
HOLLYWOOD – The cast of “NCIS: New Orleans" will report to New Orleans for the start of filming next week. Preproduction – script-writing, guest-star casting and location-scouting – has been underway for weeks, based mostly out of the "NCIS" production headquarters in Valencia, California. Introduced as two episodes of the mothership series earlier this year, the spinoff will make its regular-season premiere at 8 p.m. Sept. 23 on WWL-TV, following the season premiere of “NCIS” and in, based on that lead-in, the best time slot on TV for a freshman drama.
Thursday (July 17), the cast and creators of the new series participated in a Q&A interview session at the Summer TV Tour.
