When you are treated like Royalty, might as well be one I guess.
The title misspelled DOWNTOWN.
I would rather have a dollar Princess than the Lady Gaga.
They should remove the last A and call her Lady gag.
And Yes I know the Lady is not a Lady nor a Brit.
Obviously you don’t watch Downton Abbey on PBS which has a rich American heiress married to a Brit aristocrat needing money.
PBS? Yeah, I missed it. LOL
Downton Abby is a great show !
It comes on Sunday night here and my wife would kill me if I said I had to watch something else. I kinda like the Countess of Grantham (played by Maggie Smith) she is a hoot with such zingers. The series just intoduced Shirley McLaine as the crazy American mother-in-law.
I can’t wait ! Shirley MacLaine will only make it better !
