Believe or not had Sarah Jessica Parker said no to Sex and the City, Lisa Edelstein was all set to play the role. She told Access Hollywood, the contract was signed and she was ready to go. But as we know SJP said yes and Edelstein wound up starring in House and Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce years later.
Could you imagine if Sarah Jessica said no and Lisa was Carrie Bradshaw? Would that mean that Parker would’ve been Cuddy? Could you imagine how hot things would’ve been between House and her?
In the long run, everything happened just as it was supposed to because I can’t imagine anyone else but them playing their roles. Can you?
Last year Jimmy Kimmel Live staged a reunion between the female Friends and now he did the same for George Clooney with ER. The only people that were missing is well everyone else who was on the medical drama. Instead he found a substitute to put on his scrubs again, Hugh Laurie brought House back for one night only.
After watching Doug Ross and House try their worst to save the ABC late night host’s life, I think they need to have medical sitcom together. It isn’t like Clooney didn’t do comedy called ER before he did the serious one and Laurie is just a genius in everything he does.
One final note, I didn’t realize how old Clooney got since I saw him back in the hospital.
Jason Sudeikis was recently on Watch What Happens Live, and Andy Cohen asked him to come up with a few questions for his fiancee when she was on the Bravo show. Yesterday, when Olivia Wilde was on the show, it was time for her to play Plead the Fifth.
The first question that her baby daddy asked her was, “Olivia, what’s the wildest place you’ve done the deed?” Opting not to answer that question, she plead the fifth. A mistake she quickly regretted when she realized what his next question was. He asked, “Olivia, you’ve played a bisexual character, more than once, have you ever dipped into the lady pond in real life?” She was horrified as she realized there was no way to get out of the question. So she responded to him by saying, “I appreciate all people.” Cohen took that as a yes even though she never responded.
I hope Sudeikis remembers what it was like to have sex with Wilde because he is not going to get again anytime soon for asking her those question on national television.
Olivia Wilde was on Late Night yesterday and Seth Meyers asked her to take part in the Actathalon Challenge. Basically, she had to show off her acting skills in 10 different scenes, each harder than the one before it.
Which one did she excel at? The horror themed one, and I want to know why she hasn’t played a scream queen yet. Let’s be honest, she nailed them all. In fact, throwing wine at the NBC late night host’s face seemed to come so natural to her. So much so, you have to wonder if it is something she does a lot. Too bad House still isn’t on the air because I’d love to see her do that to him.
The Actathalon Challenge is so brilliant, I can’t wait to see more actors take part in it. So far only Neil Patrick Harris and Wilde are the only ones to have successfully finished it. Who would you like to see give it a try?
Olivia Wilde talked to Shape about her new body after having her baby, and she didn’t hold back. While a lot of female celebrities make it seem like it’s so easy to get back in to Shape, she was real about the after effects. She said, â€œMany people aren’t familiar with the post-birth experience-and why should they be?” Then she added, “But let me tell you now: For a couple of weeks after you pop that sucker out, you are the walking wounded. First of all, you haven’t seen your vagina in months, even though it’s all her fault you’re in this situation. Now that you can finally confirm that she is, in fact, still there, she isn’t the gal you remember, and would rather you back off and give her some space (and an ice diaper) for the time being, thank you very much.”
She didn’t only talk about the changes to her vajayjay, she also talked about the area above it. She explained, “That gorgeous bump you proudly paraded around town for some 40 weeks has only retreated slightly after the birth. Now itâ€™s a lot like a partially deflated pool toy. After giving birth, I joined the ranks of millions of new mothers when I moaned, ‘Why do I still look pregnant? Is there another one stuck in there?'” She went on to say, “But luckily, that part doesnâ€™t last long. Basically, for the first few months, your body has that covered, and you can just let it do the work while you focus on keeping the kid alive and occasionally washing your hair. Breast-feeding helps, in the most intense way. You feel your uterus contracting while the baby nurses. Your belly starts to go down. Your thighs become slightly less thunderous.”
Once you get through that part, it is time to reacquaint yourself with jeans after weeks of only wearing sweatpants. She talked about that too, “When you manage to button your jeans (thank you, stretchy denim), the button clasp gets swallowed up and lost in your gelatinous Stay Puft Marshmallow Man belly. This is when it becomes abundantly clear that itâ€™s time to reintroduce yourself to your jilted abdominals, though their feelings are hurt and they are very resistant to rebuilding the relationship.â€
She shared a lot more with Shape in their April issue, like would she have another kid. It is a candid read with a different approach about being a new mom. Because of that it is very refreshing.
Lisa Edelstein invited her dad to watch Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce with her tonight, only problem is that she forgot she had a sex scene in the episode. If you seen Bravo’s first scripted show, then you know those scenes are not that tame. What happened when that moment came up in the drama? She did what any daughter, no matter how old she is, would do; she covered his eyes and laughed in embarrassment. Even if she couldn’t get her hand there in time, he already protected himself from the image no father wants burned into their mind.
So the next time she wants to watch her show with her dad, she needs to have an editor make a DVD of it with the love scenes edited out. Poor Mr Edelstein.
Lisa Edelstein is playing House with her brand new husband, Robert Russell. The longtime couple got married yesterday and they look like they are ready for a lifetime of happiness. This is her first marriage and let’s hope for the actress of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, her only one!
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis finally welcomed their baby boy and Otis is as beautiful as his mother. Hopefully he will have his mother’s playfulness and his dad’s humor, with that and their looks he is going to be a heart breaker. Heck, he will be a heart break even without all of that, but I am sure he will get it all.
Before Emma Thompson starred in Love Actually, she was playing doubles and the other team scored love on There’s Nothing to Worry About!. She looks the same now as she did when she was 23 in that 1982 sketch show bit.
BTW she was playing against a 22 year old Hugh Laurie and a 24 year old Stephen Fry, and like her they haven’t aged.
