What do you get when you combine great musical star Debbie Reynolds with Shelley Winters, Teri Garr, Dionne Warwick, some spandex and a few golden oldies on the soundtrack? A very special episode of The Love Boat? No, you get Reynolds’ entry in the 80’s fitness video craze Do It Debbie’s Way.
And what, per chance, is Debbie’s way? It seems that her exercise regime consists of barely coherent low impact aerobics punctuated by sassy innuendos, much complaining about which “bulges are supposed to hurt”, and, one presumes, a water bottle filled with an adult beverage. Feel the burn, girls.
