WE HEAR . . . WE HEAR


THAT tennis superstar Maria Sharapova was overheard at her 18th birthday party thrown by Motorola saying she'd been offered a guest role on "Desperate Housewives" . . .



Can anyone say "I wanna be like Serena?"

No I can't say that she wants to be like Serena. I don't believe much of what page six says anyways.

It really wouldn't make sense for Maria to appear on Dewsperate Housewives...isn't there a more appropriate show? I'm thinking The O.C or That 70s show. :)

Bwah-hah-hah.... Countless football, hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer, skating and tennis stars have done countless guest appearances on countless TV shows. My personal favorites were the super-stiff Wayne Gretzky and the super-bitchy Nancy Kerrigan on the SNL. Yup, any athlete guesting on a TV show is trying to be like Serena... :lol: :lol: :lol: Your sarcasm is duly noted and appreciated. :tape:

PS. Since then is a one-time GS winner a "tennis superstar"??? The media pisses me off when they call the likes of Sharapova and Roddik "superstars". Graf is a superstar. Sharapova ain't.

Maybe she will be a tennis instructor or something, Bree and Rex does play. :lol:

Stop comparing what she and Serena does. Serena is not the first player to be on a show and she will not be the last, so i guess now Maria will paint her self brown put in mirco-mini blonde braids and ware things that ride up her butt crack too. :rolleyes:

Lord Liz do you ever stop?

The Media LOVES her so they want her on these shows, etc. Is that her fault? No. Does it mean she wants to be like Serena? No! It just means she is wanted and she enjoys the money that comes along with Im sure.

Let the girl be for the love..

I pointed this out because she is the one who said something to the effect that she didn't want to have "outside interests" to affect her game. Do you acutally think that there won't be other offers and that they won't have some sort of affect on her game?

Give me a break.:rolleyes:

I think she said she wouldnt LET 'outside interests' imapct her game. She has already been modeling and doing promo work for all kinds of advertisers so she ALREADY has 'outside interests...' But to say 'she wants to be like Serena' is just stupid.

@lizchris: And you wonder why there are double standards on this board?

You're doing to Maria what you accuse Serena's detractors of doing to Serena - scrutinising Maria's every action and word.

People on this board would scrutinize Serena's belly button lint if they could get close enough to do so. The same isn't true of Maria.

No, it's just true of a different group of board people doing the scrutinizing (and different group of people whining when it happens).

Because I know how you react when people make even the slightest criticism of Serena's acting (or anything else).

I have never really said anything about Serena's acting and if you really want me to be to be truthful, I didn't think Serena's acting was all that great on My Wife And Kids

Gee Liz, you sure do like to write about Maria. ;) But I don't think Maria will be acting on television or in the movies anytime soon. Nor should she be.

It would be just plain fun to see her playing a small role, let's say as a housemaid or a bank CEO... :cool:

Yes, I agree, everyone knows how easy is winning a Grand Slam, I don't find any merit at all on that... after all half of WTA has one of those big trophies in their living rooms...
Those who have won GS aren't superstars, they all are a bunch of losers :)

i just think it's the thing to do now. EVERYONE who is in the spotlight wants to act. and there's enough shit movies/tv shows out now that there is work for them. big name=money. studios don't care about talent anymore.

and i still don't think maria is that big of a name in america yet. most people [aside from men that watch sportscenter] have no idea who she is.

Well said Miss Love. What you said is true about celebrities wanting to act even if they aren't in acting profession. But you most pertinent point is that you said there are enough bad television shows and movies around that give someone like Maria the idea that she can act.

Why Serena ?

Players like Seles and Navratilova have had cameos in big American TV shows long before she ever did.

So by your logic, Serena was copying them to start with.

in terms of guest and cameo appearances, i reckon that would be kinda fun :)

BTW, the show's creator, Marc Cherry, said that he would not have any guest celebrity appearances on his show. I read that Britney Spears was desperate to get on the show, and she was turned down, so I have a hard time believing that the producers would ask Maria to appear.

at least she's not shutting down threads cause they talk neg. about her fav. player, only to leave others open to bash away at other players. :rolleyes:

Oh my!! the serena fans are at it again. Why would maria wanna copy serena exactly? At the moment shes way more succesful than her on the court anyway. and what in the world made them start with that copying thing? Anyway, since saying all this bs seems to make you guys really happy, ill help you find things with which you can accuse maria of trying to be like serena:
- They're both females
- They both have a two handed backhand
- They're both taller than amanda coetzer
- They're both tennis players
- They both speak english

Incredible!!!

hmmm, you yourself admit you don't know if this is true,

and then jump to conclusions assuming it's true.

And even if it's true, it says she's been offered, not that she wants to.


hmmm, I am sure Serena has been "offered" to pose for playboy, would you say "I wanna be like Denise Richards?"

way to twist things around :rolleyes:

She has been offered!!!
again; SHE HAD BEEN OFFERED A GUEST ROLE!!!!!

that is the difference between trying to be an actress and being sought after as an actress.

by the looks of it, Maria falls on the latter, the rest of the WTA, on the first! :lol: :lol:

I really doubt that Sharapova will appear on "Desperate Housewives." I don't think a guest shot there would do much either for her or for the show. In fact, if she wants to do guest shots, that is not the show I would advise her to appear on.

Secondly, as long as Serena has come up, what's the scoop on her acting career? What has she acted in so far, and what is she scheduled to be in?

I have heard a lot more about her career than I have heard about actual performances.
