“Frances is my spirit animal.”

Although our stay at TRANQUILLUM is brief, it’s enough time for Melissa McCarthy to pack in a powerhouse performance that has viewers of the show bowing at her feet.

Her wardrobe is a vibe all to itself.

She’s a stunner whichever way you slice it.

And folks are all about the burgeoning romance between Frances and one Tony Hogburn, played deliciously by Bobby Cannavale.


The way Frances hair gets curlier as she falls more in love with Tony 😭I wonder if this is symbolism done on purpose credit goes to @anjelickers for noticing this!

We also get a cameo from Melissa’s real-life husband, Ben Falcone, which is always a delight.


For anyone curious if they wondered how Ben Falcone is so okay with Melissa McCarthys chemistry with Bobby Cannavale and them playing love interests twice…lol I think they’re just fine 🥰🤣#NinePerfectStrangers
