This week's theme is "take off your clothes for a cause. " I don't know if they did that on purpose, but it brought some much needed cohesion to the episode. To raise money for breast cancer, Lisa and Lenny are hosting a lingerie party. Lisa wants to impress Lea who is also hosting a party for charity. But I'm not sure that lingerie is quite Lea's style... the party looks more like a brothel than a party, according to Lisa. Before the party Joanna takes off her top and adds a little hair downstairs for her PETAcampaign "grow your own fur. " Joanna wants people to realize that wearing fur isn't sexy.

In the 1850s, suffragists advocated the end of the restrictive corset. In the late 1960s, the bra became a symbol of female bondage, and went up in flames.Then came the 1990s, and Madonna rekindled the issue when she churned across stage in her Jean-Paul Gaultier bustier, defying anyone to see the bra as a symbol of oppression.Today, while some may still call for the overthrow of a lingerie dress-code, designer Donna Karan -- who is launching a line of intimate wear in the fall -- says the renewed popularity of intimate fashion "allows a woman to be free to be a woman."

As Susan Rohr approached her mid-30s, it dawned on her that her sexy Victoria's Secret lingerie was made more for her former self -- Susan in her 20s. Or maybe even her teens. "It wasn't fitting so well anymore," says Rohr, 42. "It wasn't quality." A move to the lingerie sections in more-expensive department stores didn't help much. "They do the job," says Rohr, of Patterson Park. "But they're not very pretty. They're not creative. Lots of beige, lots of white. Lots of black." And the ultra high-end lines, such as La Perla, a celebrity favorite, were well out of reach on her salary as a freelance nurse anesthetist.

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. - The lingerie and adult novelty store Victor Moseley opened four years ago as Victor's Secret is not easily mistaken for the international retail chain with the similar-sounding name. There are no super models with angel wings. No plush pink carpet or pricey, diamond-encrusted Miracle Bras. Unlike at lingerie leader Victoria's Secret, you can find a wide selection of men's thong underwear, nurse and schoolgirl costumes, even feather boas, wigs and body butter at Moseley's shop in Houchens E-Town Plaza.

Over the past several weeks, while the NFL has locked out its regular officials, we have gotten to know the NFL's rag-tag group of replacement officials -- and it has been refreshing to learn that they are just like us. They root for their favorite teams . They play fantasy football . They can sometimes be camera shy . They have favorite colors . They are occasionally geographically challenged .

Well, a new season of "Survivor" has started, and yet again, it's going to be the most. exciting. ever.  It would be nice, just once, to see a promo that said “it's pretty good - maybe not as good as the All-Stars season, but it's decent.”  That, I'd make sure to watch. We start with paddling, as we have for pretty much all the Survivor seasons.  Do they get to choose what they wear, or do the producers choose for them? Because I'm thinking the lady in the suit (Edna?) chose poorly.

My husband has this theory that because we let our son play with G.I. Joe as a little boy, we ended up with a Marine. And because we let our daughter play with Barbie as a little girl, we ended up with a Paris Hilton — strawberry blond tresses flying out the door, cellphone and gold lamé bag in hand, off to another good time. As the twig is bent, so grows the tree. So the current international kerfuffle over France's sexy 6-year-old lingerie models has some resonance for us veteran mothers.

Come spring, expect to XTC see even more lingerie-inspired party clothes -- dresses featuring built-in bras and delicate nylon lingerie lace edging necklines and shoulder straps.One of the most popular new fabric combinations also happens to be black lace layered over nude or blush-colored satin, a look hitherto more common in the boudoir than the ballroom.
