Christa Miller was apparently annoyed by how popular the "Mimi" character became, feeling it stole focus from her.
Craig Ferguson has said that while he was delighted with the pay cheque, it was a boring show to film.
I'm jealous of Christa Miller - her husband (the dude that created Scrubs and Cougar Town) is a hot piece of ass.
But she was around a lot, in non-Mimi guise. I enjoyed all her work.
Christa had to have her husband make a show and create a character for her. By the end of the show (Scrubs) she had had so much shitty work done that she really was a caricature just like Jordan was supposed to be.
I meant without Mimi's guise.
Her Scrubs character was great
Mimi was the definitely the "break out" character on the show.
I believe that at one time, they came out with an officially licensed Mimi mask for Halloween.
Why was Kathy Kinney never nominated for an Emmy for her work as Mimi? She was a riot. Even people who didn't like the show thought she was funny.
Kathy Kinney was good playing the cartoon character, Mimi. But her great performance was playing a human being in Parting Glances.
Margaret Cho was mad because they pressured her into losing weight at an unhealthy rate, then cancelled her show and replaced her with fattie Carey.
I saw Drew Carey live last weekend in San Francisco. He really trashed some of the prizes on The Price is Right. He joked about people winning things that weren't "cash, cars, or vacations".
He said he tells people who win things like hot tubs that they should just sell it for cash because the show doesn't pay for installation. He's lost a lot of weight and looked great. Overall, it was a fun show.
It was not the best show in the world, for a few years it could be funny. Like a lot of sitcoms it went on too long and the characters got more and more stupid and one dimensional. Drew was a guest host on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me not too long ago, and I thought he did a decent job.
Christa'a mother on the show was played by her real life aunt, Susan St James. Perfect casting because they really do look alike.
Diedrich Bader, who played Oswald Lee Harvey, was so hot to me. Almost like a new Max Gail.
Here are the boys doing a strip routine.
Diedrich Bader is a handsome man. He looks like he has sizemeat.
I used to know Drew, I do know he is into kinky S&M porn, but unlike most people I do not equate what one likes in porn to be what one likes in real life. He was one of the first men I knew to get his nipples pierced. He used to be quite good looking and with a great body when early 20's and right out of the marines... the problem was those tiny short teeth that kind of ruined his looks.... he had gone through some stuff I was not aware of until I read his book, and I wish I had been a bit kinder to him back then. I wish I had been a lot more compassionate to a lot of people back then as a matter of fact
That was kind of awesome R8. I'd forgotten about that.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
