Tomorrow is Halloween! October 31st! The countdown to the end of The Daily Dose’s Trick or Treat grab bag giveaway, the night to dress up in fun costumes, give away candy and to celebrate the new year that turns on Samhain and much more. It’s also a great excuse to count down some of my favorite whacky witches.
Joanna, Kat and Roxie
If you haven’t been watching Eastwick you have no idea what you’re missing. These ladies crack me up. Played by Rebecca Romjin, Roxie is a voluptuous, earthy woman with the gift of prophecy. She’s also a single mom, struggling to stay connected to her daughter. Kat on the other hand is the fiery red head with oodles of banked passion that she channels into motherhood and nursing and even into looking after her loser of an ex. Joanna is the nuttiest of the lot though, a reporter who wants to figure it all out and painfully awkward with the guys. The best thing about these whacky witches is the power of friendship they have discovered with each other.
Fran and Jet Owens
Played by Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest respectively [in Practical Magic], these ladies raised Sally and Gillian when their mother passed away and they went a long way to teach the girls a lesson about abusing their magic. Honestly, as much as I love the whole of the Owens family of witches, it wouldn’t be the same without these bawdy broads blazing the trail.
