Flop TV Weekend: BLANSKY’S BEAUTIES - TV Guidance - Macleans.ca Take Blansky's Beauties. I think she was better playing Rhoda's mom and taking on side characters instead of being a lead character. I mean, remember Murder By Death? I think she was much better for being a side character instead of a lead character. I mean, remember the show she had other than Blanksy's Beauties that did feature a gay actor...I think came around the same time as this one, but it lasted only a short while and was quickly canceled. I think Blansky's Beauties was her replacement for the variety show she had. Anybody remember that one?
