The problem is Ivy would be showing WELL before the 9 month mark. I don't think someone who is obviously pregnant would still be cast for a Broadway show.

I like the adoption idea though.

That would be great!

I just watched this week's show and was also wondering what will happen with Karen. I was wondering if she would play "Norma Jeane" and then Ivy would take over as "Marilyn". It's going to be interesting to see how they continue to develop this series if they just follow one musical being developed - seems like a self-limiting plot.

I'm really wondering why they are playing up the adoption process so much if there isn't a subplot to go with it... ie Ivy's baby perhaps? I love intricate plots...

There was a movie where two characters played the Norma Jean and Marilyn parts. I think Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino.

Thoughts on last nights episode? Here are mine...."what? Ellis is straight?" I didn't see that coming. I just assumed he was gay for some reason. I'm not really likeing his whole sneaking around stealing Julia's notebook self right now. Sure he came up with the idea of Marilyn but what is that really worth? Anyone can have an idea. Tom and Julia have done the work and turn the nothing idea into something. The eavesdropping isn't nice either.

I agree with you. I thought Ellis was gay. Regardless, he's a snake and very unlikeable character.

Since I know Debra Messing left her real-life DH for her on-screen flame in the show, I'm not loving that plot twist, either. Blech.

I'm loving Ellis! Yes, he's a snake, but personally I can't wait to see how he uses the info. I personally like him more than Julia. They mentioned My Fair Lady again, so I'm thinking that's going to come into play at some point. I'm really enjoying the show

My guess is he will blackmail Julia using the info about her affair to get money from her.

I think you're probably right, but I'm hoping it's going to be more complicated than that..it's just too obvious.

Yes! I don't think there's anyway he's going to let that juicy tidbit go without trying to profit off it somehow.

I don't think we've heard the last of My Fair Lady either. I think there is a motive behind Eileen's ex being all nicey nicey to her all of a sudden. Maybe he wants her close so he can either take over Marilyn or sabotage it in some way.

I agree with you!

I think that Ivy is already pregnant. In that first episode, she was waiting to go into the audition, and she was in the bathroom throwing up. My first thought was "That ain't nerves!"

Plus, I figured that Karen would be the understudy and would get the Marilyn part when it came out that Ivy was pregnant.

I do wish they weren't quite so graphic with the love scenes between Ivy and the producer. It seems a bit much for network TV to me.

I thought that Ellis said he got his job as Tom's assistant because he was very, very, very good "friends" with Tom's brother (this being a family board, I will just say that the emphasis is on "very"), but I might be mistaken. I will have to watch the show again.

I get the impression that Ellis will do what he's got to do to get what he wants. His plot line is a little too obvious; I hope there's a twist somewhere.

Joe DeMaggio is hot!

I thought Ivy was pregnant too after seeing the scene of her getting sick.

I agree, the scenes in bed are

Still loving watching~
