  • I want to hear about Kate Walsh getting cast in something awesome soon! Ka Dee (who already got cast) and her were the two most appealing reasons to watch PPP and now i miss the crazy dysfunctional bunch!

  • ummm.whats with all these HOD actresses getting pilot roles. First Magnolia is gone now Rose? I thought HOD had a good chance of getting renewed but this news is starting to freak me out. I know both of them are minor roles…hopefully this doesn’e spell doom for HOD

    • I’m kind of freaking out too, I hope it doesn’t mean anything!
      I’m going to miss Rose and Magnolia if their pilots get picked up, but I can live with that as long as we get another season!

    • HOD has the best chance of getting renewed between Carrie Diaries, Beauty and the Beast and Hart of Dixie. However, auditioning for pilots when your show is on the bubble is common practice. Actors generally like a safety net.

  • So that does not bode well for HOD.
    I bet the sister will be killed on Golden Boy.

  • Magnolia and Rose aren’t main characters! They can justify Magnolia gone to a better school and Rose comes and goes. And this affair of doctor breeland could result with him leaving after this season. to reduce production.
    I Really love Rose. The actress will go big if she does some good shows.

  • Please don’t tell me this means Jason is leaving TDS.

  • Rose is one of the worst characters in HOD and Magnolia can be easily written off so I’m fine with that.

  • Speaking of Deception, according to the casts’ pages on Wikipedia, they’ve all been cast in something else already so bye bye badly written NBC crap.
