Okay, I was a fan of the Australian show but there a lot of obvious differences between the American version. First, I have to say that the pilot opened with Kim leaving her husband Craig of six weeks of marriage because over her selfishness-vanity behavior. You see it in this episode more clearly. Kim is a self-obsessed narcissist I think who is too concern about herself than about others. In this episode, the show belongs to Molly Shannon who can break your heart as a home-based hairdresser. I don't remember if Australian Kath was one but it doesn't matter. In this episode, Molly Shannon's performance can make just feel for her after her client tells her that her daughter is going to a real salon for her prom night. You could just tell that Kath was really hurt and tries to pretend it doesn't hurt. In this episode, she tries to get herself known at the mall promenade show featuring mall-based businesses. Her fiancé Phil gets her in but they get the worst spot in the mall. It's her daughter that can save the day if she's not distracting her estranged husband from his job in electronics at the mall. The self-described trophy wife gets banned from the mall just as her mother needs her the most for the show. The final scenes are little out there.
