ROSE (AND ROWS) OF TALENTED WOMEN


Yes, it's the biggest tv show of the year (without toys, that is). It's the inspiration for the FR TED Lovely Girls Contest and love it, or hate it, it's not going away. Mary Kennedy is the Chair of the all important judging committee, star of Nationwide and it is impossible to overstate her popularity.
