Jillian picked two top movies of the year: Mr. Mom, which she was in, and Terms of Endearment, which she wasn't. Jillian dug Sheena Easton's Best Kept Secret and Jennifer Holliday's Feel My Soul but, adds Ann, "there are singers and then there's Barbra Streisand." Jillian found Peter Maas' book Marie, a study of government corruption in Tennessee, to be "fantastic." On TV, Ann admires Hill Street Blues because it's "as close to the way it really is as it ever could be." She should know: Her husband is a former Chicago cop. Jillian reserved her criticism for two subjects. One is "drug-based humor—drugs aren't funny." The other is ABC's Webster. Why pick on a show about a cute kid? "Because," says Jillian, "it is opposite my show, Jennifer Slept Here."
