The part-time actress, full time assistant.


It wouldn't be L.A. if we didn't have at least a few part-time hopefuls in the office. The big boss's assistant (nice gal by the way) happens to be one, but she actually gets jobs here and there. Not too long ago she was on that show "Nip/Tuck" on F/X. She was pretty excited and told everybody to watch, even sending a mass email. I wasn't really familiar with the show (Just knew it was about plastic surgeon doctors from commercials) until I saw it with her in it. To tell you the truth...it was really creepy. She was playing some stalker sex-crazed fetish freak who liked paper bags...over her head. I came into work the next day and wondered why she would tell people to watch. It's like not like she was on "CSI", "Joey" or some other cheesy sitcom. This gig was something pretty risqué'. I don't know, maybe actors/actresses are just excited to get work on TV or Films. I still get pretty surprised when people we know, try really hard to get their kids in acting - always dragging them to auditions and such. My wife thought I went too far when I said, "No daughter of mine is ever getting into acting!" Call me jaded, but did you see what happened to those "Diff’rent Strokes" kids? Willis is still picking up trash off the 101 freeway from his last drug arrest, Kimberly did porn then worked at a dry cleaners (before a drug-overdose that killed her), and Arnold is begging for work outside a model train shop in Burbank.

    Hey, you take work where you can get it, huh? If she sent out a mass e-mail to your office about her work on that show ... imagine the work she's doing that she's NOT telling anybody about ... can we say Ron Jeremy? Hmm? Just a thought ...

    Great. Now I'll never look at her the same way again...

    I used to hate Nip/Tuck until I watched a marathon of it. I was hooked. It's risque and twisted but somehow redeems itself through it's unflinching examination of how f-ed up people really are. Seasons one and two were the best.
