Once again, Robin Givens's hotness is the drawing card.
"The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" was, in sum, a silly, shallow, basically empty-headed sitcom that was absolutely undeserving of Will Smith (how he must be overjoyed that his dismal days being in that stinker are over). However, the episode "Cold Feet, Hot Body" was a genuine stand-out, and, as usual, it was Robin Givens who made it so. Her lush beauty, her plush sexiness, and her dazzling energy honestly powered the episode and made it wholly memorable. As Denise, she made a thoroughly, totally thrilling lure and made one dying to be in Smith's shoes. When he turned her down (!), the viewer really and truly felt like yelling out: "Hey, if he's not interested, I am! Give me a try!" Her mouth-watering vamping of Smith's character made the heart race and the pulse intensify. It was that episode that signaled Robin's emergence as the modern-day celebrity/entertainment world's leading black pearl. And, contrary to the famous song of the same name, she, thank Heaven, absolutely escaped being in the background.
