Is Rosie O'Donnell joining the cast of "Nip / Tuck" full time?
That's what Rosie said to the studio audience during a break on the set of "The View" on Wednesday. She said she's been offered the female lead of the show since Joely Richardson is leaving for a year.
She said that she'd play the character of Dawn Budge, who was introduced in a guest role this past (the show's fourth) season. Dawn would be the owner of the plastic surgery center and do things like "sneak Cher in the back door" and then hire paparazzi to take pictures.
Rosie added that it would be a 15-week shoot in Los Angeles. She didn't say if she was going to do it, but it sounded very much like she's leaning towards it.
No word on how this could affect her schedule with "The View," but Rosie has said that she's only signed on to co-host for one season of Barbara Walters' morning talk-fest.
