*Gasp!* It’s you!

It’s another one from the vaults of Fame – Season 2, this time for no other than the lovely Tracy Bregman, merciless Ginny-impersonator and psycho killer from Happy Birthday to Me! In this episode, Words, she plays Jenny, whose mega-strict pop blacks out any suggestive passages in her textbooks, making Miss Sherwood intervene and, if I remember correctly, get told to fuck off. Whatever happens, Jenny is conveniently never seen again. Unless she killed Coco, donned a rubber mask and proceeded to dress like her, talk like her and even walk like her… Cooool.

Whatever, Tracy, if you somehow ever read this, you’re the only thing I remember about the whole damn episode. Just a shame we didn’t get to see you dance.


*Gasp!* It’s you!

Thanks to my unexplained fixation with the TV series Fame, not so long ago I posted a picture of Larry Zerner – Shelly from Friday the 13th Part III – and, lo and behold, a later 1983 episode ‘Love is the Question’ revealed his buddy and star of the very same film. It’s Dana Kimmell!

Melanie twists her ankle about 30 seconds later and hobbles off, shares a bit of dialogue with Danny and Jimmy Osmond (!) as a vocal prodigy with special needs (!!). She returns at the end to do some dodgy ballet and that’s it. Guess she flunked dance…
