Caroline Rhea Steals Delta Burke's Sordid Thunder

It's true. At first I was devastated when I heard that Delta Burke would not be returning to the role of Noleta in Sordid Lives: The Series.  Having never seen much of Caroline Rhea (I'm too old for Sabrina), I was even more hesistant than ever.

Now?  Now I am radically smitten with Caroline Rhea.  I can't image any other Noleta ever existing.  It's as if the memory of Delta Burke has faded into film oblivion.  I was torn to pieces when GW laughed at her.  And to me, her ability to be so real in all of her scenes makes her more hysterical and even more heartbreaking than I imagine Delta Burke could have ever pulled off.  With all due respect to Delta, I love her forever.  But just as Madonna could only contribute so much to Evita, yet Patti Lupone was Evita, Caroline Rhea is Noleta.  

I watched her on Conan's show and on the View (or Regis & Kelly, I can't remember).  She was so pregnant and glowing.  And funny.

I can't wait to see her story continue.  What a beautiful addition to the cast.  By far the surprise breakout new actor in the series.  I smell an Emmy...

Sordid Lives The Vlog: New Video Posted!

The Sordid boy, Jason Dottley and Del Shores, have their newest (and best) installment up of their Vlog on Logo.  

Winner! Favorite Sordid Character "Sissy" -- Beth Grant: The Busiest Actress in Sordid's Cast

With over 30% of all votes, Beth Grant's "Sissy Hickey" wins our first Sordid Lives: The Blog Poll!

I always knew I'd seen Beth Grant in a ton of movies, but not until my trip to this morning did I count that she's been in over 60 films, some have won Oscars. I didn't even bother to count all of her TV appearances.

I say it's time she wins an Oscar or Emmy for her work.

Dr. Eve in Kentucky Paper

from the Kentucky Courier-Journal
Kentucky native loves 'Sordid' role
JULY 30, 2008

When Rosemary Alexander was growing up in rural Kentucky, she didn't really know anyone who was leading a sordid life, but tonight on television she plays one of the sorriest characters you'll ever meet.

Alexander is Dr. Eve Bollinger in the new TV version of the movie and play "Sordid Lives." It shows at 10 tonight on Logo (Insight 176).

Logo is a channel that targets gays, but this series just might attract a broader following because it also stars Olivia Newton-John, Rue McClanahan, Caroline Rhea, Beth Grant, Bonnie Bedelia and Leslie Jordan from "Will & Grace." Jordan plays the object of Alexander's character's obsession.

Dr. Eve is the chief psychiatrist at the Big Spring Texas State Mental Institution, Alexander explained in a phone interview from Los Angeles, where she lives.

"The character is career-driven and bent on getting on 'Oprah,' and her method of achieving that glory is to develop her theory of dehomosexualization," said Alexander. "She's trying to dehomosexualize the gayest man in the world (Jordan) who thinks he's Tammy Wynette or channels Wynette while he's dressed in drag."

It's a world far removed from the one in which Alexander, 67, grew up in Kentucky.

"I'm from a pioneer family in Lincoln County around Kings Mountain near the Cumberland Gap," she said. "It's a treasured memory because I lived back in the hills; I guess you would call them knobs. We had no electricity, no plumbing, no paved roads. We lived off the garden and raised pigs and sugar cane," Alexander recalled. "It was a wonderful time."

Her father was a farmer.

"There were constantly floods and bugs, and he went to Detroit to work in the automobile factories, so we moved when I was 9 from Moccasin Creek to Detroit."

Later, she went to Michigan State University and wound up meeting and marrying a man from Texas. They moved to Dallas, where she got involved with theater. "Eventually I met a man who was my soul mate (Newell Alexander, who played in the film 'Sordid Lives') and we moved to Los Angeles together to be actors," she said.

Thirty-some years and five children later she has made good on her goal of acting in lots of plays, scads of TV shows and doing voiceovers for animated films. The day of our interview she was off to voice animal parts in "Madagascar 2."

But her role in "Sordid Lives" is one of the nuttiest things she's ever done.

"It's pretty crazy. I've played even darker characters … but this one is kind of warped. The character is kind of mean-spirited and evil, and I've never played someone like that before."

The over-the-top show is played for laughs, though, and her role is straight. "I'm the straight lady for Jordan. I set him up because everything he does is funny, but I've learned along the way to get some laughs out of it too."

The humor, she said, is sometimes the key to what attracts people to playwright Del Shores' works. "When we first did the play in Los Angeles, Del had just come out as a gay man, but our audience for about a year was a straight theater crowd."

The movie (released in 2001) wasn't particularly targeted at gay audiences, although "they eventually found it," Alexander recalled. "Our next big demographic was older people, and there were lots of articles about gays and grays liking it." She's also done another Shores production called "Southern Baptist Sissies," which she describes as "an amazing play."

" 'Southern Baptist Sissies' takes a far more serious look at sexuality," she said. "It deals with young men who grow up gay in a very conservative fundamentalist church in the South. It's about how their minister deals and how their mothers deal with them," Alexander said.

"It's about their struggle to heal, love and accept in a society when you're told you're queer, that you're going to hell and burn in a lake of fire," she said. Alexander plays three of the men's mothers.

She has played a lot of real and unreal parts over the years in films and on television too. Her movie credits include "Titanic," "Jerry Maguire," "Jumanji," "Erin Brockovich" and "The Insider."

Her television parts range from "Days of Our Lives" to "Murder, She Wrote," with "Dallas," "Knots Landing" and "Chicago Hope" in between. She did "Las Vegas" last season. "That was fun," she said, but her favorite TV show was "Highway to Heaven."

"I loved it because I got to work with Michael Landon, and he was really dear, sweet, kind and loving, and my experience on that show was wonderful." In her second place is "Designing Women." "It was so sharp and funny," she said.

She and her husband have also done radio drama.

"Radio was my theater when I was a kid," she said. After they worked with some other actors on a radio show, they thought it might be fun to try to develop some programs just for radio but found there wasn't much market when they shopped the idea around.

"People said, 'I don't know if you're ahead of your time or behind your time, but nobody wants long-form radio anymore.' "

A year later, they met legendary entertainer and businessman Gene Autry, who encouraged them to do it. "We wrote a show called 'Christmas in El Paso.' Autry and the people at his museum loved it, and they went on to do a series (at Autry's museum) for a decade."

When they first went to Los Angeles, the Alexanders did commercials and industrial films as a way of supporting their growing family. Now that the kids are adults, they're doing more of what they want to do. Tonight "Sordid Lives" tops that list.

Sordid Lives Superb Reviews

Jason Dottley has just posted these reviews on his website. It looks like Sordid Lives: The Series is quickly becomming the mad hit we all knew it would be!

The Reviews!
Sordid Lives" has more laughs than a hunting dog has ticks. The semi-big-name cast helps keep it upright and lends the project an air of prestige. Beth Grant, Ann Walker and Sarah Hunley are superb. Shores clearly knows and loves his characters. LOS ANGELES TIMES

It's been years since heartache and heartbreak was this much fun. Not since "Soap" ended 27 years ago, has there been a show quite like this one. In each episode, outrageous things happened to outrageous characters, often producing outrageous laughs. THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Del Shores (the Tyler Perry of Southern gays) brings his movie and stage show about crazy Texas women and slightly-less-than-crazy gay men to TV with a cavalcade of camp icons (Rue McClanahan, Olivia Newton-John) and brilliant, canon-ready Beth Grant. TV doesn't get gayer than this, Mary. B ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY.

Outrageous. What could be bad about any project that puts '80s icons Rue McClanahan and Olivia Newton-John together? TV GUIDE

It has great stars, it has great characters, and it has the making of a great show! NEW YORK POST

A whip-smart script and solid performances, particularly Beth Grant as the pill-popping, chain-smoking cement-haired Sissy. But, like the film, the best parts of the show focus on Brother Boy. Jordan owns both the role and the entire show. NEW YORK PRESS

A sort of "Mama's Family" meets "Will and Grace," boasts a cast that even the broadcast networks would be happy to assemble. Peggy's family tree has a nut hanging from just about every branch. REUTERS

Shores has created a funny, loopy, off-kilter comedy that, truth be told, probably would play just as well on other cable channels, including Comedy Central and TV Land. MSNBC

Del Shores cures our Sordid Blue Balls: When the cast blog..

This is the newest blog from Del Shores' personal myspace (

Premieres, meeting so many of you, WRITE LOGO!!!

Hey fans and friends --

Wow! These last two weeks were just amazing for me, Jason and all the cast. It was so great to meet so many of you at the premiere parties --

NYC was just off the hook. I've never been on a red carpet that intense and the whole night was just so special. We raised money for the Trevor Project and that made my heart warm. The cast was so great -- all of them. Leslie Jordan was just a riot as was Rue. Georgette Jones and Debby Holiday singing -- sheer heaven! And Beth, Olivia and Bonnie plugging the Trevor Project was so special. But Caroline Rhea -- oh my, what wit, what a talent -- and she drove those auction items up, up up! I just adore her and all of my special cast.

Then came Outfest. It was just awesome playing my home town of Los Angeles. So many friends, so many fans and all so responsive to the screenings and Q&A after. It was great having Margaret Cho and Candice Cayne join us. The after party was fun with Debby Holiday rocking the house (at Tom Whitman's Cherry Pop at Ultra Suede) and Jason making a stink about not being able to dance on the boxes! Oh my man...

Palm Springs -- WE LOVE YOU! Showing three episodes there and returning to the Camelot Theatre, feeling all that love -- Wow. We always feel like stars there and we thank you for starting this crazy Sordid phenomenon.

Finally, we had a great time at East West Lounge. Although the sound was not great, so the show was hard to hear, Trip and Josh made us feel so special that night -- and again, so many fans and friends there. The place was packed!

My only regret with these events is that I always feel pulled in all directions and sometimes don't get to spend as much time with each one of you.

And the season premiere on Wednesday the 23rd was just so special (my Mom's birthday, the real Latrelle). Seeing the show on TV for the first time... a dream come true. We too hated the blue balls bouncing around and they are going away on each first run and the sound will be gone on other showings. Also, the show ran long because of the ads they sold (a good thing, meaning Sordid Lives is making LOGO money) -- but SET YOUR DVRS AND TIVOS 3 or 4 minutes long so you won't miss anything. And it's running all week, so if you missed the end, re-record and you'll get it.

The reviews have been amazing. I never expected that little bonus, but they are just through the roof!
Okay, I need your help. I need all of you to write LOGO this week and tell them how much you enjoyed the show and that you want a second season. They don't have ratings, so they depend on web hits to our official page -- please share this and tell every Sordid fan to write LOGO.

Here is the Sordid Lives page on LOGOONLINE --

And here is the link to write them a letter --

Thanks for all of your comments, messages and love --

Love you back!!!
