Thank Goddess she’s given up the kung fu chops and focused on acting in other areas. Check it out – Lucy Liu at an ABC fall line up event. Can you believe she’s almost 40? Actually I can. Like I’ve said before…we Asians age in the most peculiar fashion: young young young til 60. And then 80 comes in the space of a week. It’s frightening.

Still, given that she’s taking care of herself, and wearing sunscreen, Lucy just might have a shot at overcoming the China Curse. Look at that skin! Also love that she’s not starving – fit but not emaciated. Total gorgessity.

Lucy is starring in a new ABC production premiering this fall on ABC called Cashmere Mafia – terrible title – by Darren Star…yes, that Darren Star. Of Sex and the City. Synopsis below:

Their names are Mia, Juliet, Caitlin and Zoe. But you"ll come to know them as the Cashmere Mafia -- four Manhattan women bonded by their Ivy League educations and executive success. A thinking woman"s Sex and The City mixed with the wit of The Devil Wears Prada, this one-hour drama assembles a cast of bright, driven, relatable women who support each other through rocky marriages, rival colleagues, kids" recitals and the hunt for the perfect loft.

Ambition always comes with a price. Consistently outpacing their male colleagues and husbands in salary and title, they also have to watch out for scheming bitches eager to bring them down. Fortunately, there"s strength in numbers. These successful executives regularly bring their problems to the lunch table and use each other"s strengths and resources to avert disaster, both personally and professionally. With style, smarts and appeal, the Cashmere Mafia is about to bring sexy back to the boardroom, while unexpected heart and humor keep their stories compelling.

Not to be confused of course with Brooke Shields’s new show Lipstick Jungle, based on Candace Bushnell’s book and airing this fall on NBC:
“this enticing new dramedy follows three high-powered friends as they weather the ups and downs of lives lived at the top of their game. Nico, editor-in-chief of a hot fashion magazine, has her eye on becoming CEO. Movie exec Wendy does everything she can to balance career and family. And free-spirited designer Victory longs to make her dreams come true, and maybe find Mr. Right along the way. Armed with humor and strength, these three modern New York women support one another through the triumphs and tears that are all part of making it big in The Big Apple.”

Can you tell the difference? I can’t. Darren vs Candace – which will you watch?

Ps. Remember Lindsay Price from 90201? Steve’s girl? She’s in Lipstick Jungle and she is stunning!
