Candice Delong was 60 at the start of this show (and 65 at its end) but it looks like she's trying to make herself look younger, which doesn't work in any way. She's got so much make up on and the died hair, she's a hard look. But that wouldn't be so bad if she wasn't such an awful interviewer.
I don't know why but the camera is on her more than it is the subject of the interview. We have to see her tilt her head, nod, tilt her head, do some sort of move and go "hmm mm" a lot. Lots of times when she doesn't have a response to what's being said, she'll go "hmm mm hmm mm." There should be follow up to a lot of what the interviewee is saying and there isn't, again, because Delong is so bad at this.
As a narrator, she's actually okay. She probably would have been good on Snapped (as a narrator, not as an interviewee, which again, she's awful at - never has someone uttered the most obvious stupid phrases as she does on that show). But as an interviewer, she's terrible.
And worse, watching these killer women sit there and lie and lie and Candice gives her opinion on them (in voice over) while giving them sympathy in her "interviews," again, hard to watch.
Terrible show. I've only watched few, tried to watch again but couldn't.
