Joan Rivers will be appearing as herself in an episode of 'Nip/Tuck' on FX this coming season. This has to be the best fit of a show's premise to a celebrity guest star since last year's soap opera extravaganza on 'Hope & Faith'.
But it stands to reason that since 'Nip/Tuck' is a show about plastic surgery, it would have a nice, tight fit.
Just like Joan Rivers.......
This will also serve as a link to several other series in which Joan Rivers portrayed herself, and I'm not just referring to her past talk show experiences with 'The Joan Rivers Show' and 'That Show'.
Joan played fictional versions of herself on the following series:
'I'm With Her'
'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
and maybe on an episode of 'Here's Lucy'; the one where Lucy and Joan served on a jury.
And there's also 'Can We Shop?'. So sue me.
The producers of 'Nip/Tuck' should also look into booking Kate Rollason to fly over from England and play herself on the series.
One problem may be that if they did fly her over, they'd probably have to pay for three seats....
Don't know who she is? Then check out this link:
