[ # ] A mini Boson Buddies reunion!
May 22nd, 2017 under Tom Hanks


Before Tom Hanks had 2 Oscars to his name, he starred in a hysterical show called Bosom Buddies with Peter Scolari and Holland Taylor. He didn’t have to lose or gain weight for the role, but he did have to shave his legs because Kip (Hanks) and Henry (Scolari) dressed up as woman to in order to live in all female hotel. Ruth (Taylor) was their tough boss who wouldn’t take their crap and eventually went in to advertising business with them. It was so totally ’80s and yet timeless, and that is why it is still in syndication over 35 years later.

While that was then, this is now. Here at the three leads prepping for something in October and sadly it is not a reunion show. I would love to see how Hanks looks drag in 2017. We know that Scolari can still work it because of Jimmy Kimmel Live bit he took part in last year.

They honestly don’t make shows like this one anymore which is really sad. Because back then, they made our days more Sonny, Sonny, Sonny, Sonny. On that note, Donna Dixon, who is married to Dan Aykroyd, is still just as gorgeous as she was then.

How much would you love to see a revival of Bosom Buddies? Kip and Sonny could have gotten married, had a son, who also dresses as a woman, just so that they can all live in that same hotel. Why would they move because it was cheap, just not dirt cheap like their old apartment. Maybe Henry and Amy (the late Wendie Jo Sperber) had a daughter and Kip’s son is in love with her? That could be the spinoff and Isabelle (Telma Hopkins) could sing the theme song. I think I need to get a life.
