Question: When will Roseanne come out on DVD? I need my white trash fix. BTW, am I the only one who liked the episodes when they were rich? I mean, come on they got to meet Patsy and Edina! Roseanne
Ausiello: Well, I'm sure you're not the only person named Roseanne who liked those episodes. And regarding the DVD, I'm hearing that the first season will likely be out in late 2005.
Question: Yes, Mike, that tidbit of a scoop you gave me about Joey will suffice for now ("Ask Ausiello" 11/24), but you have got to admit that something has to be done to make that show more watchable. Any suggestions? Chase
Ausiello: Aside from a new writing team and more Jennifer Coolidge? Not really. Although, I'm looking forward to catching Lucy Liu as his boss later this month. Click here for more on that.
Question: Have you noticed that Felicity Huffman's character on Desperate Housewives wears that three-strand necklace in every scene she is in? Regardless if she's wearing sweats or a cocktail dress? Is this the result of a really lazy stylist or do you think it will be part of a story line to come? Lauren
Ausiello: Yes, I've noticed this, too! I have a feeling it's just a personal choice made by Ms. Huffman. I have a call in to the show to make sure, though. Stay tuned...
Question: Hi, I'm fat, too! How fat were you? Greg
Ausiello: Yippee! I was 250 lbs. at my heaviest, which was my senior year of high school.
Question: You are blocking out my ability to view program listings. Steve
Ausiello: Enough with the fat jokes, people. I'm skinny now!
Question: I just got back from seeing Keri Russell's new play Fat Pig. Did you make it to Friday's show? And if so, what did you think? Christine
Ausiello: Yes, I certainly did make it and I have to admit, I got chills when she first stepped out on stage. I mean, it's been nearly three years since I've seen her in anything and I had no idea what to expect. Well, not only did she look stunning, but she acted her freakin' ass off in a role that was about as far from Felicity as you could get. Essentially, her character a foul-mouthed, superficial, judgmental accountant disapproves of her ex-boyfriend's (Entourage's Jeremy Piven) decision to date a "generously proportioned" girl. She has some great scenes with Piven, including one in which she literally shoves him halfway across his office, over a swivel chair and onto the floor. The play itself, like most of Ne
Question: Just a quick note to say Mom is looking forward to seeing you at Christmas. But just remember that my real husband will be there and you have to pretend to be a distant cousin. Love ya. Sheri
Ausiello: OK, but please don't seat me next to your brother Jimmy at dinner. There's something seriously wrong with him. Plus, he smells.
Question: There is a commercial currently running for Aleve that shows two black women talking. I know that I have seen both of these women before but I can't place their names. Can you help me? Rhonda
Ausiello: Ismail, meet your first assignment.
Question: This is more of a comment than a question. Although I love Desperate Housewives, and I think all of the actresses deserve Golden Globe nominations later this month ("Ent. News" 11/17), I think Lauren Graham deserves it more. April
Ausiello: You're preaching to the choir, Ape. There's no question that Graham is long overdue for recognition for her work in Gilmore Girls, but with Housewives fever sweeping the nation, I fear those buzz-worthy Wisterians will squeeze Graham out of the best comedy actress category. And not to knock Teri Hatcher and Co., but that would be a tragedy on par with the great Scrubs snub of 2002. And 2003. And 2004...
Question: I loved Flame on Santa Barbara ("Ask Ausiello" 11/17), especially when she slept with Father Michael and then wrote, "I am a sinner" on his back with red lipstick as he slept. Tony
Ausiello: Yeah, they don't make characters or scenes like that on daytime anymore. Speaking of The Fiery One, am I the only one shocked that Roberta Weiss (aka Flame) didn't become the biggest star on the planet after SB? I mean, is Hollywood, deaf, dumb, blind and stupid?
