It may be just gossip but it was something foreseeable. With Ashton Kutcher serving as creator and executive producer of The Beautiful Life
, speculations of a possible guest appearance by none other than his wife, Demi Moore, were bound to happen sooner or later. It even came to a point where some sources even reported which character the 46-year-old actress is set to play.
"Demi has turned down a lot of TV shows over the years, including Ugly Betty
. But she completely trusts Ashton. The plan is for her to play a recurring guest role so that she can keep coming back," a source said of Moore, who is expected to appear as an ex-model obsessed with plastic surgery on the CW series.
On the other hand, The CW rep was quick to disprove the rumor. But even if the network rep had not said "this is not true," I wouldn't count on seeing Moore in a small TV venture, at least not anytime soon. Since concentrating in the movie circuit to star in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, Half Light, Flawless, Mr. Brooks,
and Happy Tears
, Moore hasn't had a chance to make an appearance on the small screen. Last I remember, she previously guest starred as Sissy Palmer-Ginsburg in an episode of Will & Grace
in 2003 and was last seen making a very brief appearance on Saturday Night Live
Still, that doesn't mean that Moore won't be involved on the creative process of The Beautiful Life
. The Ghost
star has already been providing some behind the scenes assistance to Kutcher for the series about models living in New York, which is set to premiere on September 16 on The CW.
For now, though, Moore's daughter Rumer Willis will be taking over the small screen with an appearance on another CW series. In the new season of 90210
, she'll play a lesbian, yet another controversial role following her prostitute character on Medium.
