Oh my god... All I can say is what the heck are people thinking????
Rosie O'Donnell recently made two guest appearances on Nip/Tuck as Dawn Budge, a lottery winner who sleeps with her plastic surgeon, Christian Troy. Christian Troy used her for her money and well, she used him for sex after catching her own husband in bed with her daughter... (Father/Step-Daughter Relationship). Christian Troy slept with her for money and she did it for revenge and to get something she would not be able to get without the money.
According to the source, "And the character proved to be such a hit with fans, producers approached her about starring in her own show. In the "Ask Ro" section of her internet blog, she is asked the question, "Is it true ur in talks for a spinoff series starring as DAWN BUDGE?" O'Donnell posted the message, "Talks r over. I said yes." The new series will reportedly be shot in New York City, so O'Donnell can also continue her hosting duties on US chat show THE VIEW."
I've lost all respect for tv producers... I wont be watching this new series and I would be shocked if it had any sort of success. Rosie's character was ridiculous on the show and I am sorry to see this season heading in the wrong direction. I guess if they are aiming low, the Rosie series would be a bullseye. The writing has taken a serious dive this year and in my honest opinion and the spin-off only gives me reason to believe that Nip/Tuck wont be back next year. This is just my opinion with no official word or basis other than what I see each week on FX.
Penny for your thoughts?
