Cashmere Mafia vs Lipstick Jungle

The battle of the network Sex and the City's has begun. Candace Bushnell tries her luck again with Lipstick Jungle. Brooke Shields heads the cast of rich female over achievers. Cashmere Mafia features Lucy Liu and Miranda Otto from The Starter wife and The Lord of the Rings. Both shows feature four type A women with fabulous cloths and apartments. Of course there's the obligatory "mommy" character with all the annoying little problems that entails.

While they are virtually the same show, one is clearly more entertaining then the other. Candace struck gold with the original, but the copy is a boring imitation. Cashmere Mafia may be a watered down version of the original, but at least it's fairly entertaining. The writing is faster and the cast is much stronger. The big question is will Cashmere Mafia return?

Read the rumors.
