Portia De Rossi



"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

"Damien Sands"

After weeks of dark-themed episodes it was a pleasant diversion to watch this NipTuck special event as the promos announced If any show can make fun of itself via a copycat reality-show version its this one I loved that it started and ended like a regular episode but that the entire approximately 40-minute middle portion was the reality-show replica called Plastic Fantastic And yes I thought it was fantastic Fantastically hilarious that is Did you notice that there was no sight of Matt and Kimber Their Debbie Downer storyline was obviously unwelcome this week But back to Plastic Fantastic It was no surprise at all that Christian was the one to be enthusiastic about doing the reality version of their lives and not Sean Christian hates being in Seans shadow and apparently has never heard of Dr 90210Before I point out the highlights of this episode let me first say that I am glad the fictitious network that was considering picking up Plastic Fantastic de 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

"Dawn Budge II"

As a longtime Rosie fan I was looking forward to her return as lottery winner Dawn Budge as were a lot of you I was skeptical though How could they make it believable for any former McNamaraTroy patients from their Miami years to fly to LA besides having them there just to visit That question was answered quite well after we got to experience seeing Dawn hang gliding in Calgary and being attacked in the mouth by a flying eagle Truly one of the funniest NipTuck visuals ever so funny I had to rewind three times So of course Dawn had to fly or rather get on a plane to LA pronto Who else would she trust to fix her busted mouth besides her pals Christian and Sean How many of you immediately thought of Donald Trump or Elisabeth Hasselbeck after Christian told Dawn Were going to have to sew your mouth shut for two weeksI thought of them but also Barbara Walters when Christian said to Sean during the surgery For several days as Dawn Budge heals the wor 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

Portia de Rossi and Joely Richardson Couple Up on Nip/Tuck

Portia de Rossi and Joely Fischer, Nip/Tuck

How often does an actress get a chance to play a part that could be taken out of her life? "I am a lesbian playing a lesbian," notes Portia de Rossi of her new role on Nip/Tuck. "But she’s a different woman than I am, so the most surprising thing is how emotional it’s been for me." It is the first time de Rossi (Arrested Development) has played a lesbian on screen — a risk she was willing to take only now, three years after she went public about her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres. De Rossi’s character, Olivia Lord, an acupuncturist with a teenage daughter, made her first appearance last week as the girlfriend of Julia read more

"Joyce & Sharon Monroe"

Once again seeing Christian and Sean in their new Hollywood surroundings hit home for me Our TV Guide corporate offices are directly across the street from Graumans Chinese Theatre so we see those celebrity look-alike characters every day As soon as I saw Fat Elvis appear in this episode I said out loud Yes Fat Elvis Coincidental side note I shared an elevator with Fat Elvis this morning I swear but the one used in the show was a different one played by actor James Price So having McNamaraTroy treat dueling Marilyn Monroes Genius I wouldve died if it were dueling Spider-mans because weve got them here on Hollywood Blvd one much more in shape than the other And yes Chewbacca is there too Susan Griffiths and Merilee Brasch were fabulous as Joyce and Sharon respectively But Id like to point out that they shouldve switched roles since I thought Susan as Joyce played the better Marilyn even though they mentioned several times that Sharon was better read more

Can you give us any major ...

Joely Richardson; Portia DeRossi

Question: Can you give us any major scoop on what will be happening on the new season of Nip/Tuck?

Answer: One piece of major Nip/Tuck scoop coming your way! You already know that Portia de Rossi will be joining the cast for nine episodes playing a lesbian mom whose teen daughter wants to go under the knife. But what I'm 100 percent certain you don't know is that Portia's character is going to be involved in a torrid relationship with — holy lipstick lesbians, Batman! — Joely Richardson. That's right, Julia's switching teams for Ellen's honey. And word on the set is the pair's sex scenes are anything but tame. Of course, this is Nip/Tuck, so that much is a given.

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
