ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT: COJO’S STYLE INVESTIGATION, TRANSCRIPT OF INTERVIEW
January 4, 2005
Cojo: Now I’ve got a little secret. You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg. Just ask the queen of CSI, Marg Helgenberger. Oh sure, she seems so glam, so put together at the Emmy’s or the People’s Choice Awards. But could it be that our little Marg is actually a bargain shopper?
Cojo: For those who don’t know, we’re in the Fashion District in downtown Los Angeles. And this is bargain central.
Cojo: It’s my very own CSI. That would be Cojo Style Investigation. My fashion suspect, TV’s top detective Marg Helgenberger.
Cojo: Can we pretend this is like a crime scene? Like CSI shopping?
Marg: We could do that.
Cojo: Okay. Because I like that.
Marg: As long as I don’t have to wear latex gloves or carry a flashlight.
Cojo: No, But I promise…
Marg: That’s my criteria right there.
Cojo: Okay. The real crime here, the killer steals you don’t have to be a star to find for hundreds less.
(They look at various items of clothing).
Marg: Those are cute.
Cojo: Those are adorable.
Marg: Wow, those are cool.
Cojo: Those are sexy.
Cojo: Now, let’s stop and review Marg’s criminal sheet case file. Funky and fitted jeans for CSI’s 100th episode bash. Sexy in Guy Motil Bole(name??) at the People’s Choice Awards and Glamour girl in the scorching low cut number she slipped into for the 2004 Golden Globes.
(Red Carpet Replay)
Cojo: It’s the Jessica Rabbit dress.
Marg: It’s the Jessica Rabbit dress. Her mantra was “I’m not bad, I’m drawn that way”
Cojo: Hmmm, and We’ll leave it on that note.
Cojo: Investigating how Marg works out her style, I’m hot on her trail. And it looks like she’s got her eyes on getting a steal on shoes.
Cojo: Shoes, shoes and more shoes. Boots are us.
Marg: They’re everywhere. I actually want to try one of these on.
Cojo: Good. So you’re feeling the whole Moroccan sheik.
Marg: But you know what? They’re charging like $200, $250, $300 for flats and these are $25.
Cojo: We can do it better.
Marg: We can do much better. These are actually really cool. I like these.
Cojo: Marg, you nailed it.
Cojo: Ah Ha! I caught Marg red handed as she tries on her killer kicks.
Marg: Those are very hot.
Cojo: You could wear these to an awards show and they would think these are those crazy insane $1,500 shoes.
Cojo: Finally my interrogation. The mission to find all of Marg’s style secrets and I’m not holding back. Are there tricks to looking slimmer? Like body shapers or poses or standing a certain way?
Marg: I inhale a lot.
Cojo: But you’re being serious. The old suck in the stomach thing.
Marg: Suck in the stomach and stand straight with your shoulders back.
Cojo: Oops, And now I’m about to become an accessory to Marg’s offense as I shell out some cold hard cash for some sinfully styling stems.
Cojo: Ding, ding, ding, ding
Cojo: $199.18 for how many pairs of shoes?
Cojo: Eight pairs of shoes. We did good.
