"Season five picks up around six months after season four. Monday we start shooting...private rehearsal at 6:30 a.m. First scene up belongs to Sean and Christian. The first episode has so many guest stars it's insane. But not all of them are famous people. This year, I will be sprinkling in just really good actors (ala Mrs. Grubman and Escobar) so the show doesn't become The Love Boat."
"Also yesterday did a notes call for Episode Four of this year, which the network proclaimed the "most shocking" we've ever done. I was surprised at that. Nothing shocks me anymore, except bad manners. As for Kimber, she sinks to new lows, which is where I love her to be. There is nothing better than a Kimber/Christian scene in which he takes her to task for being a wanton woman."

Season 5 Episode 2: Joyce and Sharon Monroe "HERE'S THE SCOOP: Joyce and Sharon Monroe are
competing Marilyn Monroe impersonators (in no way related) who work outside Grauman's Chinese and make their living getting tips by acting out famous Mailyn Monroe moments. When one gets plastic surgery to out Marilyn the other, it's war...with Sean and Christian sexily caught in the middle..." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan Murphy
"Bradley Cooper shot his first scene today, and the cast and crew and the boys loved him. He is very funny and charming, and a great addition. Even though he and Julian play arch enemies in the show, they had a ball together, with much great ad libbing, which I always loved." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan Murphy
"Nurse Linda, the beloved one, appears in Episode One. She just followed the gang to LA, to roll her eyes and judge their exploits. Julia (Joely) returns full force in Episode Two, and from then on."
"Christian's bedroom this year is equally stunning. I think I mentioned the outdoor stainless steel hot-tub, but I think I neglected to mention his bedcovering this year is...fur (yes, of course it's fake. But it does have a delicious sexual caveman sex vibe to it)." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan
"Just got back from a delightful dinner with Ms. Kelly Carlson, aka Miss Kimber. She is a delight, so nice and beautiful. I told her all about Kimber's shocking arc this year, and we had a ball planning it all out...down to the nail polish. During the dinner, I discovered we both are obsessed with the late, great Sharon Tate (actress and Manson victim), so you just know Kimber's
look this year will be influenced by Sharon. Check her out in "Valley of the Dolls." Taken too soon." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan Murphy
Sunday: 7~15~07 "All I will say about Ms. Kimber is that a) the baby is really Matt's and b) it's turning into the greatest bitch part EVER. Kelly and I both love it." ~ Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy
Thursday: 7~19~07 Party At The Santa Monica Pier William Keck USAToday
Nip/Tuck's Kelly Carlson was there and said that next week she'll be shooting the new season's third episode, in which her character, Kimber, relocates to Los Angeles to join the docs. "There's kind of an emergency, and she and Matt are in big trouble," she teased. "It relates to a current epidemic in the United States right now."
Roma Maffia also relocates her character, lesbian nurse Liz, who will find a new hot lover to be played by a famous actress. "All I'm going to say is you're going to see some gams and some arm, baby," Maffia said with a laugh.

"Answers to many questions:
1) The Villain. Yes, I said this. They are among my favorite to write. This year's villain is quite spectacular, and will first appear in episode three...and then in every episode on through
14. What she does is not to be believed. She will be the character you love to hate (shades of Ava...? And no, it's NOT Ava).
2) Sean will not be a baddie, nor will he change permanent places with Christian.
finished the editing of the first episode, and really love it. Some times I don't map out the entire season, which is good, I think. It lets you write and explore characters you thought would only be in one episode if they pop (like Escobar and Bobolit and Mrs. Grubman, for example). This season is pretty much mapped entirely out, because of the complex villainy involved of several

today with the one and only...Phyllis Diller!
If you remember, Phyllis was the first celebrity to openly speak of her plastic surgery. She is a spitfire and I loved her! So much energy and optimism.

her!)" ~ Ryan Murphy creator
