There was a time when Debbie Gibson was the squeaky-clean ’80s version of today’s Miley Cyrus, but young people today know her better for her 2005 Playboy Pictorial. Oops? If there’s one way to try to restore an almost-nonexistant public opinion, it’s… a bizarre Saturday night science fiction movie. We guess.
On Saturday, Gibson appeared alongside ’80s popstar rival Tiffany in TV movie “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid” on SyFy. Gibson was a sexy animal rights activist and Tiffany played a sexy park ranger… yes, they both looked like they were headed for the Halloween party in “Mean Girls.”
While the SyFy movies of the week tend to fall into the “so bad it’s good” category, this one may just have been bad. The unsubtle nod to the twenty-five-year-old rivalry might have been cute a decade or two ago, but by now it’s really, really, really old news.
But hey, we got a catfight out of it, and choice words like, “You crazy, cold blooded, snake-loving bitch!” and… wait for it… “I think… we’re alone now.”
What’d you think, Zappers? Is a career revival in the cards for these two, or should they go back to quietly collecting royalties?
