Kelly Carlson on Nip/Tuck's Outrageous Sex Scenes: "Just a Regular Day at Work"

Nip/Tuck

The only thing wilder than Nip/Tuck's storylines are the FX drama's kinky — and graphic — sex scenes. But Kelly Carlson, who played the ex-porn star wife of Christian (Julian McMahon), says even the most outrageous scenes were "just a regular day at work." Get the scoop on which scenes were the craziest for the actress, and why she wasn't impressed with the way Kimber was killed off. She also told us how she kept herself separate from her wild character.

"Candy Richards"

Back on November 14 2006 when we saw the future lives of the NipTuck characters I mostly praised the episode since it was such a pleasant change of pace What I wasnt thinking at the time was how unfortunate it would become as a viewer that we know exactly what will become of the characters So Julia got shot last week so what We know that she survives since she was in the future episode So Christian and Annie got in a car crash caused by paparazzi this week We knew immediately that theyd be OK since theyre also in that episode And now even after multiple knife stabs in his back by crazy Colleen at the very end even though blood was gushing out of his mouth Sean cant be dead he too was in that damn futuristic episode Of course one can argue that the episode-of-the-future couldve just been someones dream but it wasnt presented that way when it aired so I guess I have the right to bitch about it right Imagine how shocking and suspenseful that stabbing read more

"August Walden"

That ending was a real bang wasnt it Oh Julia If youre going to buy a gun for self-protection protect yourself by hiding it from others All Eden the skank needed to do was find that damn gun in Julias bedroom I knew that as soon as Julia told Eden that she figured everything out that Eden was the one who was the cause of her mysterious illness Eden wasnt going to react in a good way How about the timing of Julia receiving her follicle lab results that clearly included words like exposure to high dosages of mercury and contaminated foods at the exact same time that Eden was serving her yet another piece of fruitcake Bingo Julia Ill take it to my room Julias inner thought Ill send it to the lab in Virginia Olivia sure was an understanding lover earlier sending Julias hair sample to the lab even after Julia told her she was having an affair with Christian I was expecting a different reaction There was Olivia all happy and peppy and burst read more

"Rachel Ben Natan"

After a four-week break it was nice to revisit the adventures of our favorite fantastically plastic duo Too bad we still dont know what Eden put in that dang fruitcake four weeks ago All we know is that it gives Julia spontaneous nosebleeds which just makes Christian pout about being deprived of sex with his best friends ex Speaking of Eden how lovely to have a completely Eden-free episode Sure the skank returns next week but it was pleasant to get through an entire hour without her Four characters returned that I enjoy Dawn Budge Rosie ODonnell Freddie Oliver Platt Aidan Bradley Cooper and after a long time away Gina Jessalyn Gilsig Ill get to Ginas return laterEver since we first met Freddie it was beyond apparent that he was gay Then when Freddie and Dawn started dating besides thinking Huh I was immediately reminded of Dana Carveys character on SNL Lyle The Effeminate Heterosexual So leave it to Dawn to budge it out of him after seeing read more

"Duke Collins"

Just like last week, I want to start with the ending. How many of you were reminded of the final episode of The Sopranos with that quick fade to black? I kept thinking something shocking or tragic was going to happen since I knew it was the final minute of the show. "Silent Night" was heard in the background simultaneously with a dramatic beat, while slow camera shots of each character were shown. Once Eden walked in with her fake smile and Sean looked down, avoiding her, the one thing I expected to happen was for Julia to collapse and that would be the cliffhanger since we won't get a new episode until January 15th. What was that liquid that Eden added to the fruitcake she made and then fed to Julia? It seemed like Julia was getting queasy or dizzy periodically throughout the second half hour, but she never passed out. And nothing shocking happened at the end. At least with this fade to black, I didn't think my cable suddenly went out like I did with The Sopranos (that was more of ... read more

"Dr. Joshua Lee"

Where do I start So much happened in this episode that my head is spinning I guess Ill start with the ending Matt catching himself on fire and jumping off the balcony into the swimming pool Call me a drug novice but I am guessing Matt was freebasing cocaine or crack or cooking meth and since he was so out of it he accidentally set himself on fire Can we assume since he was carefully trying to read the how to instructions that when Matt and Kimber would do their drugs it was Kimber who was the expert Ouch Thats gonna leave a mark Nothing Sean and Christian cant surgically fix we can assume But I did feel bad for the newly-crowned Burger King employee Matt Kimber really laid the honesty on him when she packed up her things and left him I cant move forward carrying your dead weight and then I never loved you Matt I told you I did but I lied And Im really sorry I hope some day we can be friends You knew Matt was going to go ballistic after Kimber told h read more

"Chaz Darling"

TV villains throughout the years have ranged from characters that you love to hate to those you simply just hate and wish would go away Ben Michael Emerson from Lost Alexis Joan Collins from Dynasty JR Larry Hagman from Dallas and Abby Donna Mills from Knots Landing would fall into the first category Eden AnnaLynne McCord definitely belongs in the second one Ugh The character has no redeeming qualities I actually cringe whenever she is on screen Do I find fault in the actress portrayal No I just think Eden is being written to be way too hateful Interesting to know that everyone I talk to about the show agrees Thumbs down to Eden Same goes with most of you who have posted comments here Michael Jacksons You Are Not Alone runs thru my head when I read most of the commentsWhen Eden first appeared in this episode it seemed she was heading in a better direction When she encouraged her BGF Best Gay Friend Chaz Jai Rodriguez from Queer Eye to come read more

"Everett Poe"

Just as I had heard this third episode had more drama and less comedy than the first two episodes As anyone who lives in Los Angeles can attest its not all sunshine and lollipops all the time here in La-La-Land So I was not surprised at the tone throughout most of this hour It didnt mean there werent any zingers every now and then thanks to two of my favorite NipTuck writers Lyn Greene and Richard Levine Richard also directed the episode Ill get to some of those great lines later but let me first get this out of the way That opening scene with Sean and Kate Paula Marshall in the hot tub was really crappy Sorry couldnt resist You learn a new thing every day Kate learned never to take laxatives before getting into a hot tub with her lover At first I thought it was blood didnt you Poor Kate You knew Christian was going to go to town on that with Sean even making loud farting noises But you also knew that it was never going to leave Seans mind S-- read more

Nip/Tuck Goes Hollywood (Literally)

Julian McMahon and Dylan Walsh by Michael Becker/Fox

They’re back. Miami’s busiest plastic surgeons are back in business, but they’ve moved operations to Los Angeles, where they hope they’ll duplicate some of their successes. The Nip/Tuck duo have a rough start, but soon, Sean and Christian have everything they think they want.TV Guide hung out on the red carpet at Saturday's Nip/Tuck season premiere screening at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. While newly ultrathin star Joely Richardson was a no-show, and her former beau, John Hensley (who plays her son Matt on the FX series), slipped by reporters, some cast and crew were willing to share stories.Dylan Walsh tells us that with Sean McNamara and Christian Troy moving to sunny Southern California, a new angle was offered to the series: "something we haven’t done before — farcical humor... with Sean working on a medical show ['Hearts and Scalpels'] as a technical advisor — has freed us up to make fun, silly fun, of our show, medical shows, TV, the indu... read more

Nip/Tuck: A Fresh Start in L.A.

Julian McMahon and Dylan Walsh by Prashant Gupta/FX

Just when you thought you'd had your fill of those over-the-top plastic surgeons on FX's Nip/Tuck, they've shaken things up and moved those hot docs Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) and Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) to the world capital of face-lifts and body augmentation, Los Angeles, for the fifth season. (The first of 22 new episodes will premiere in October; it hasn't yet been determined how this season will be broken up.)Series creator Ryan Murphy took the stage Thursday at a Television Critics Association panel in Beverly Hills to describe the new season, and he and the rest of the cast certainly sold me — including Joely Richardson, back after taking a personal hiatus for part of last season; John Hensley and Kelly Carlson as newlyweds Matt and Kimber; and Roma Maffia as nurse Liz, whose character travels West after being offered double her previous salary. (The core cast will be reassembled in L.A. over the first three or four episodes, Murphy says.)Guest stars will includ... read more
