Debra Messing looks like she hasn’t a care in the world as she relaxes outside a yogurt shop and reads her book. In fact, the Will & Grace star has a lot to look forward to – she’s starring in an NBC pilot this fall called “Smash.” It’s a musical show about Broadway that has been compared to “A Chorus Line.” Debra plays a song writer. She’ll have a hard time topping the success of “Will & Grace” – one of our all-time favorites. (Does anyone else think Will & Grace” jumped the shark when Debra got pregnant?)

    Jumped the shark with her pregnancy?

    Oh absolutely. And the worst part—IMHO—was that since it wasn’t written into the show, Debra was pretty much rooted to the couch or stuck behind some obstruction to disguise her condition. Hard to write write interesting situations with characters who can’t MOVE.

    But when I was still had a TV I caught the early episodes in syndication, and was amazed at how the actress who plated Karen evolved in that role; once she kicked her voice up a notch, it was off to the races—she stole a lot of scenes over the years!

    Awww nuts. Proofreading demands that I should probably put down my drink. Apologies, all 🙂

    (By the way, the most on-point criticism that I heard about Debra during production was, “she isn’t as funny as she thinks she is.” And she wasn’t.)

    “Our all-time favorites?” Speak for yourself. I hated that show.

    Lola: ditto, ditto, ditto. Too many fags and always wondering who was going to kiss who. Gross.

    kait: debra keeps her “magnum xl platinum edition” vibrator discreetly tucked away in her purse—as a true lady should

    I think kait was talking about a Kindle or a Nook, thanks for asking, but thank you for the laugh. I also prefer books to my Kindle. Can’t comment on the xl platinum edition vibrator.

    Jew or not a Jew? Answer: Jew

    Her character was frequently the butt of jokes written to emphasize her sexual undesirability, appearance, personal habits, etc.

    After all, this was a show created and written BY gay men, FOR gay men, with often barely disguised misogyny at its core.

    Also notable for the times some convolution of plot would result in a character exclaiming admiringly, “Gotta love the jews!”

    Uh, nope.

    You will always notice her nose; it’s hideous.

    The show should have been called “Just Jack and Karen”… those are the two that were the best in that show. I always thought Grace’s character was boring… I liked Will though.

    I like her as a red head and she is meant to be that way and she looks so good but at the same time what ever piece of work she is doing…Is something she is putting her heart and soul into it and she is Beautiful and has a great personalily and she smart and she has talent that is raw and she has style and class and I want to wish her well and hope her future gets better on many levels but there are times in a person life where they do something great and you role and go with the punches but sooner or later you have to get off the ride and always look back on the body of work that has been done and remember that the futures holds something amazing for all of us and that in life you make history and you make people laugh and cry and you torch there hearts and give them pure joy and funny times and I just want to say Thank You and…I am opened minded to anything and everything you do?

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
