The Ladies Take Over The Next Dave White Presents With Elizabeth Rohm (Law and Order), Martha Wash (The Weather Girls), and author Barbara Barnett talking House M.D.!
Elizabeth Rohm is best known for her TV roles as Assistant D.A. Serena Southerlyn On Law and Order and as detective Kate Lockley on Angel. Her mother was a script-writer for Guiding Light, so it's appropriate Rohm's own career started with work on One Life to Live before her two seasons on Angel, four years on Law and order, and recent projects like The Client List and In the Dark. She's also an activist and author on her most important role of them all—Motherhood.
Elizabeth is now trying her hand with comedy, starring in the upcoming The Whole Truth with Sean Patrick Flanery and Eric Roberts. She'll give you the inside story on the next DWP as well as share insights into her newest book, Object of My Conception.
There's probably a lot you didn't know about the song, "It's Raining Men." The music was written by Paul Shaffer. Diana Ross, Donna Summer, Cher, and Barbara Streisand all turned it down before a duo called Two Tons O Fun were talked into recording it. And they changed their name to The Weather Girls specifically for the 1982 hit.
One half of that duo, Martha Wash, comes to DWP to tell you how it all happened and how she and her partner, Izora Rhodes, laughed and laughed when they first heard the demo. But Martha has lots to say about the pair's previous work on the hits of Sylvester, her solo work with Black Box, and Top Ten singles like "Gonna Make You Sweat." Martha has a new album out called Something Good, and we have a great sample to play for you!
In 2008, House M.D. was the most watched show in the world, seen in 66 countries. A Top Ten hit for three seasons in the U.S., critical praise included five Primetime Emmys, two Golden Globes, a Peabody, and nine People's Choice Awards.
What made Hugh Laurie's portrayal of Dr. Gregory House, one of television's most misanthropic characters, must see TV? Barbara Barnett, author of Chasing Zebras: The Unofficial Guide to House, M.D., can tell you. Unlike many TV books, Chasing Zebras isn't a quick examination of the cast and production with an episode guide. Barbara gets into much more depth, analyzing the appeal of a drug-addicted genius and why we were fascinated by a man most of us wouldn't want to share dinner with.
