Rose by any other name...

It's a proven fact that Rose (aka Billie Piper) took the Doctor, a 900 year-old asexual alien, and turned him into the kissy-est time lord to ever fly a TARDIS.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

And with good reason. Not to put too fine a point on it, but ... the girl is hot. Her scrunchy little nose, curvy body, and that adorable way she smiles with her tongue out. In a word: rawr. She continues to demonstrate how delectable she is in the new-to-US show, Secret Diary of a Call Girl (originally aired in the UK September 2007, it premiered this side of the pond last Monday on Showtime).

Is it hot in here, or is it just her?

Based on the purportedly non-fiction books and blog of "Belle de Jour," a former escort in London, this show promises to be salacious and riveting. Piper plays both Hannah, a young woman trying to make her way in the world, and her alter-ego Belle, a hard-nosed high-class hooker. This was a stroke of pure casting genius - Piper can go from Girl Next Door to Sex Kitten in ten seconds flat. The one thing that worries me is that in some of the promotional materials Piper looks awfully skinny. I would hate hate hate it if she lost weight for the role, for motives both altruistic (she has struggled with anorexia) and selfish (she looks better with some meat on her bones).

Sadly, I do not get Showtime. All I can do is add Secret Diary to my Netflix queue. Availability... Unknown. *pout*


Point of interest, "Belle" uses the same blog template as I do. Of course, she doesn't have a big goofy picture of her family as the header. I win.

HA. I bet you just wanted to post pics of the Doctor getting macked on.

In other news, my Dad has Showtime, so maybe I can catch the show On Demand...

While you're On Demanding it, don't forget Weeds with the loveable Mary Louise....

Maggie - Your Dad gets Showtime? *writhes in jealousy* And of course I will use any excuse for DW pics :P

Jeff - Yeah, almost all the adverts I've seen for Secret Diary have been for Weeds as well. All I know about that show is that Mary Louise does a lot of Mary Jane ... any further insight?
