Hey man Personally I dont give a flying ****, but in respect to those who havent seen Dexter, you should really remove that spoiler.


Thank you so much for Dexter's spoiler! :/


Been a fan of Benz & her fine work since Angel & other film/TV roles. Ridiculous makeup work on her here, tho. Guess the producers (and perpetually insecure aging Diva regulars?) wanted a look which screamed 'TRAMP,' lol. Benz wouldve looked just fine with a minimum. Ahem, any HETERO male knows that todays exotic dancers usu. dont TROWEL on the garish facepaint - they dont NEED to, lol.
