While watching Frasier reruns I've come to the conclusion....
That Jane Leeves had a serious eating disorder. If she turns sideways she becomes practically invisible. She looks like a lollipop with a flat ass, sunken tits and huge feet.
"If she turns sideways she becomes practically invisible."
They would say the same thing about Maris.
She's skeletal on Hot in Cleveland.
She's a dancer, so it would make sense.
Roz on the other hand had nice curves.
Pairing Daphne and Niles was an absolutely idiotic decision. Those two supposedly had hot sex, but had no sexual chemistry at all.
She's an actress....nowadays a proper actress must always be on the cusp of complete organ failure.
I agree, R6. I never got her appeal, either.
[quote]She's a dancer
I wondered about that because she walks with her feet turned out.
Roz was stacked R5.
Well, I bought Niles's fascination with Daphne: she was a funny, sweet woman who was the complete opposite of Maris. Daphne falling for Niles was always a little more iffy to me.
Were Daphne's papers in order? Maybe she needed Niles to stay in the country.
R9 - Yes that's the word.
I could totally see why Niles would be attracted to Daphne. Having spent years being pussywhipped by a cold, domineering, rich wife, he was drawn to someone pretty, warm, and working class. What I couldn't buy is Daphne being attracted to him, her attraction never even having been hinted at until the writers decided to get them together.
What you assume is anorexia actually is a problem with colitis brought on by years of heroin addiction.
Or maybe she just likes being thin and she's now too old for the look.
I'd say she's had quite a nosejob too - which I'm surprised by.
She is like 6 foot tall so it's easy for her to stay thin. She can probably eat a horse daily and stay trim.
I liked them as a couple - she was like a life raft to his drowning man. What a funny show it was.
It's the rare actress who isn't that thin, OP.
And the show jumped the shark when those two got together. Yes, R13 is correct about why Niles wanted her, but there's no reason for her to return his feelings. IMHO it should have ended with Daphne leaving for someone adorable, and with the three Cranes ending up together, realizing that all their earlier differences are resolved and they love each other as a family.
"Three old bachelors together", how about that.
BeBe Neuwirth is a dancer too but looks healthy yet slim. She also has gorgeous legs and doesn't walk with her feet out.
One of the reasons I never watched "Hot In Cleveland" is Leeves was my least favorite Frasier cast-member.

There actually was an episode that addressed this, when they all went on a road trip in an RV. Daphne freaked out on realizing that they had crossed into Canada, because she didn't have her green card yet.
^Daphne had to pretend to be American for the US border guard when they crossed back into Washington. The way she kept saying "sure" ("shurr") was a bit of a catchphrase among my friends back then.
It was indeed a funny show R16. A few stand out as favorites. The Dr. Mary episode has Frasier impersonate the angry black woman waving her finger, the one where Frasier goes into Bad Billy's wearing a pair of too tiny white shorts and gets accused of being gay leading to Patrick Stewart's character attempting to "tempt" him over to the gay side. All in all the show had great writers.
David Angell one of the producers died on 9/11 along with his wife.
January Jones? No way, Kidman definitely is closer to Kelly than Jones.
sorry wrong thread
I agree. I recently watched a number of episodes of "Throb," a sitcom she starred in during the mid-'80s. There, she looked like a normal, healthy person. As 'Hot in Cleveland' progresses, she seems to be getting thinner and thinner. It also shows in her persona; she seems to lack any real energy anymore.
I thought DHP was magnificent in his portrayal of a man obsessed with a woman BEFORE the two actually paired up on the show. Afterwards it all went straight to shit.
an actress with an eating disorder? what a shock, next they'll have black people in the NBA
She looked good when she was on Murphy Brown. Of course she was very young then.
She has a nice singing voice.
I remember her on "Throb", IIRC it was about a radio station or a record company. She had massive hair.
Wasn't she dating that short guy from "Murphy Brown"? I forgot his name.
LOVED BAD BILLY'S. Also the one where Frasier had a Greek aunt who ran a restaurant; the one where Frasier and Niles tried to run their own restaurant; the one where they went to the ski lodge and Guy (pronounced Gee) lusted after Niles;the one where Frasier and Niles thought they were Russian royalty because of a clock their dad owned. Great writing. One of the writers wrote a couple of comedic novels about a gay Hollywood P.I. I forget his name, but you could probably research it on google. Very funny.
also liked the one where they showed a glimpse of cutie Bulldog's butt
The first six season were perfect. I agree, putting Niles and Daphne together took important element off the show. I watch the reruns. Writing was excellent, so was the cast.
such a groovy lady, she needs to put on some healthy weight in case she needs an operation.
