Based on the best-selling book by Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City, this fun and sexy series follows the lives of three ambitious women in Manhattan: Wendy (Brooke Shields, Suddenly Susan), a successful movie executive who struggles with juggling her career and family; Victory (Lindsay Price, Beverly Hills 90210), a fashion designer with big hopes for her professional and love life; and Nico (Kim Raver, Third Watch), a no-nonsense magazine editor. Though their lives in the big city may have their ups and downs, they always manage to keep their good humour and, more importantly, they always have each other. Like Sex and the City, the main attraction here is the show's modern take on romance, glamourous portrayal of urban life, and daring humour.
The second series includes guest stars Rosie Perez, Mary Tyler Moore, Carlos Ponce, Shannon McGinnis, Rosanna Arquette and sports stars including James Blake.
Lipstick Jungle is, if you’ve not met it before, a show about three women living their lives in the heart of Manhattan. Between them, they have to juggle their careers, families, romances and fashions, all the while generating a fair few chuckles a long the way.
Sound familiar? Unsurprisingly, Lipstick Jungle was firmly targeted at those looking to fill the void that Sex and the City left in their lives, but that does manage to undersell it slightly. Based on the book by Candace Bushnell, the show’s second season is both confident and entertaining, and deserves analysis in its own right, rather than straight comparison to its higher-profile rival.
It does have a few problems, though. Brooke Shields as movie executive Wendy struggles in the role, and that puts a greater workload on the back of Lindsay Price’s Victory and Kim Raver’s Nico. Furthermore, it’s a little inconsistent, and doesn’t quite (despite its best efforts) manage to step out of Sex and the City’s shadow. But those quibbles aside, Lipstick Jungle is still a very entertaining and under-appreciated show, and it’s hard not to get value for money out of this box set.
Sadly, this is the last season of Lipstick Jungle, though, given that the decision was made to axe it. It’s not the first show that’s deserved a better fate at the hand of television commissioners, and it won’t be the last. But it is a cut above what its fate may lead you to believe. Recommended. --Jon Foster

Starting off with Nico trying desperately to get her marriage back on track after feeling so guilty about her affair. little does she know! Victory wanting nothing from Joe but we all know secretly she still loves him, and Wendy - she has a few things to deal with in this season as far as Maddie and Shane are concerned.
Victory deals with a store opening and a fling with her contractor - Nico with a surprise thats certainly life changing and Wendy who has to deal with a lot of unexpected issues and then her husband wanting to go on a tour with Natasha Benningfield.Just when you thought things were good the unexpected happens...but watch it and see....
As per usual the turns and twists of lives of 3 beautiful friends and women.
Thoroughly enjoyed and really sad they decided to end the series.
Only more glamorous and sexy than reality, obviously, and that is the only negative comment I could make (too much glitter, money...etc.)
However, the portraits of these three women, their friendship, their relationships, their troubles, is deeply touching and at the same time, will inevitably make you smile.
I would definitely regret the lack of a third season!!!
from jet lag. Found the friendship even more genuine and supportive then before. The show was light hearted with likeable charecters that were not overly sexual as the charecters in SITC. Cant wait for next seasons episodes!!
