On the last episode of Lipstick Jungle
, which aired the day after New Year's Day, Nico (Kim Raver
) was discussing the risk of freezing her eggs unfertilized instead of picking a donor, in her prolonged and complicated quest for parenthood. Meanwhile, Victory (Lindsay Price
) helped Wendy (Brooke Shields
) organize her living room so that she can work from home and be more organized. Also, Wendy found out that Shane was still considering going on tour with singer Natasha Bedingfield, putting a strain on their marriage. The biggest news of all, however, was that Victory proposed to Joe, who said yes.
On tonight's episode of Lipstick Jungle
, Wendy makes a daring bid on a very highly sought-after film, but can't bring herself to be that which apparently matters more, being a single parent, as Maddie goes off the rails in Shane's absence. Nico, meanwhile, asks Dahlia to help boost her professional status, with a guest appearance on The Today Show
with Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb.
News of cancellation erupted in November as reports that Lipstick Jungle
would suffer the same fate as fellow NBC series My Own Worst Enemy
. Shields, however, went on record to deny these reports, claiming that they weren't true. "They're not breaking down the sets. We're still working. We still have more to do, so it's erroneously presented that we've been canceled, thank God. Our bosses are saying, 'You're not canceled, don't worry. We're just trying to figure out how to make this make sense.'"
Based on a novel by Sex and the City
author Candace Bushnell, Lipstick Jungle
averaged 5.2 million viewers per episode. Its dismal first season ratings reportedly caused its demise.
fans can catch “Chapter Twenty: La Vie En Pose” tonight at 9/8c on NBC.
