40 and fabulous



By Jocelyn Uithaler

Beauty, check. Millions in the bank, check. Fame, check.

Aaahhh, the life of the rich, fabulous, and not so young.

They might have a combined age of 160, but Julianna Margulies, Kate Walsh and Teri Hatcher and Toni Braxton are living the life, and they're all over 40.

They also boast hit TV shows, youthful looks and designers on speed dial, waiting with the perfect little ensemble for those mandatory red carpet picture perfect moment.

The Good Wife, Private Practice and the final season of Desperate Housewives are all on M-Net Africa this week.

Julianna, Kate and Teri all play characters we love – strong and independent women. In Teri’s case, her character is clumsy at times, and not as independent. But we still love Susan!

We first met Margulies as a doctor in the hit 90s TV show ER, and her role as Alicia Florrick in The Good Wife, has firmly placed her back on the small screen A-list.

She’s won a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Emmy award for her role as the betrayed wife, who returns to her former career as an attorney.

Now in its third season, there seem to be no stopping her.

From the minute the red-headed girl walked into our screens as Doctor Addison Montgomery, we were in love!

Moving on to a spin-off, Private Practice was good news, because we finally got to see more of her.

Kate has done other productions, she even co-starred opposite Grey's Anatomy's Christina Yang (played by Sandra Oh) in Under The Tuscan Sun.

 

Audiences fell in love with Teri as Lois, a strong and determined journalist, revealing the truth about Gotham City.

But as the clumsy Susan Meyers on Desperate Housewives, we can’t help but laugh at her unfortunate incidents.

Before Desperate Housewives, we practically forgot about Teri. But seven years ago, she managed to climb back into viewers hearts as a hot housewife.

And now meeting with the housewives on Thursday evening has become a tradition - just like hanging with the girls.

This nineties songbird sang about 'unbreaking hearts', and we're looking forward to the reality series that features her talented family!

And where cameras follow families, drama is practically guaranteed.

She filed for bankruptcy a few years ago, and now with her belief and her siblings by her side, Toni is back in the spotlight.

At award shows she performs with her sisters, proving that she still has the voice that made her famous. And through it all she looks as glamorous as ever, and not a day over 34.

These 40-somethings ooze confidence and happiness. They are successful in their careers, on top of their game, and they have nestled themselves warmly into our hearts. And for some reason, it seems they've found the fountain of youth.

Catch the season premiere of The Good Wife S3 tonight (14 Mar) on M-Net Africa at 21:30 E and 22:00 W. Private Practice airs on Tuesdays at 21:30 E and 23:00 W. On Thursdays you can see Desperate Housewives at 21:15 E and 22:30 W and The Braxton Family Values just ended on M-Net Africa.

These 40-somethings ooze confidence and happiness. They are successful in their careers, on top of their game, and they have nestled themselves warmly into our hearts. And for some reason, it seems they've found the fountain of youth.
