Daily Herald Suburban June 9, 1997 â€œThe Ruby Wax Showâ€ has a distinctly British feel. Itâ€™s a lark, as Wax compares breasts with Pamela Anderson Lee, climbs into bed with Goldie Hawn and goes shopping with Bette Midler. But the thing that makes it work â€” both here and abroad â€” is Waxâ€™s Midwestern straightforwardness, which must seem as exotic to U.K.viewers as â€œCrackerâ€ is to us. Wax holds up one of Leeâ€™s skimpy T-shirts and says with disbelief, â€œNow, you donâ€™t have a 4-year-old child. This is for your body.â€ She discusses childbirth with Hawn, saying, â€œI never forgave my children for not knowing where the exit was.â€ She compares struggling actor jobs with Midler and talks about being a waitress at the Evanston Holiday Inn. The amazing thing, at least in tonightâ€™s debut, is the way these stars reveal their essential selves when confronted with this lunatic. Lee is confounded. â€œCan I be your body double?â€ Wax asks on the set of â€œBaywatch â€ â€œAs long as you donâ€™t tell anybody,â€ Lee responds. Midler, meanwhile, comes off as superior. She suffers Wax in order to plug her latest album. But ifs Hawn who really opens up, especially on being stereotyped as a ditz. â€œI had a hard time with the giggle and the look,â€ she says, â€œbecause people expected it of me.â€ So when Wax gets Hawn giggling in her hot tub, it seems all the more natural. Although it airs at 7:30 p.m., â€œRuby Waxâ€ is not family viewing. â€œIs this getting too intim ate?â€ Hawn says at one point while giving her ditsy look, and the answer is yes. But, compared to Barbara Walters and other TV interview shows, â€œRuby Waxâ€ is a breath of fresh air â€” a cool breeze of summer viewing.
