It's official! Rosie O'Donnell confirmed on her blog that she is inked to do a spin-off series that centers on Dawn Budge, the character she played on Nip/Tuck. O'Donnell posted the following answer in the "Ask Rosie" section of her blog:
Question: "Is it true ur in talks for a spinoff series starring as DAWN BUDGE?"
Rosie: "Talks r over. I said yes."
I really wish she would spell the words out instead of all that shorthand shit. Sorry, that is just a pet peeve I have about her blog. ANYWAY, so the show should be interesting. I am a huge Ryan Murphy fan, so if he has anything to do with the spin-off, it should be good. The only thing that worries me is yes, her character was funny on Nip/Tuck, but a lot of what made it enjoyable to watch was the interaction she had with Julian McMahon (aka Dr. Christian Troy). I'm just not sure if this thing will be able to fly on it's own, especially without the possibility of Dawn Budge having sex with Dr. Troy on a bear skin rug again.
