Matthew Balan already reported Cybill Shepherd's feminist outburst on yesterday's CBS This Morning. But her CBS interview was also remarkable for what was NOT said. Shepherd was brought in to discuss her role on the new Lifetime series "The Client List," in which she plays the mother of Jennifer Love (for Sale) Hewitt's lead character -- a massage worker who's also a prostitute. That little sex-worker detail never emerged in the entire CBS interview.
The interview began with a clip from the show where Shepherd's "Mama" brought over a nice gentleman to meet her daughter and have dinner -- except, of course, it's obvious that the nice gentleman is a sex client of her daughter. This was completely glossed over by CBS. Like she was never clued in, CBS co-host Gayle King mentioned Shepherd's debut in the movie "The Last Picture Show" and added "Forty years later she's still playing memorable and often surprising characters."
