Career[ edit ] After flunking out of the University of Pennsylvaniawhere she had intended to major in psychologyDee decided to become an actress. However, she has put little effort into realizing her ambition and has never had any significant acting work; as a result, The Gang frequently says that she has no talent for anything. Dee's aspirations to be an actress inspire her to create several characters, all of which are based on ethnic stereotypes.
Many of these are seen in the episode "America's Next Top Paddy's Billboard Model Contest", in which she attempts to be discovered by talent agencies by posting videos of her acting on YouTube. However, her presence in the videos is overshadowed by Charlie's performances as Green Man.

Relationships[ edit ] Since high school and through the entire series, Dee has had a long list of failed relationships and one-night stands that includes: Like the other members of The Gang, Dee drinks heavily, often hoping to calm herself when meeting an attractive man. Relative to the rest of The Gang, Dee seems to drink more and be drunk more often. She harbors a phobia of the elderly.
Despite her many insecurities, Dee is aggressively outspoken and is prone to violence when angered. At one point, she assaults a bum she finds masturbating in the alley behind Paddy's. Charlie and Dee accidentally use steroids in "Hundred Dollar Baby", which greatly increases their anger.
In "The Gang Solves the North Korea Situation", she is, along with Frank and Mac, on an American Idol -like panel where she portrays a drunken spoof of Paula Abdulslurring her words and judging hopefuls in a talent contest. She drinks heavily from a cup full of " Rum and Coke " and uses the event as an excuse to criticize and demean the contestants.
I found it weird that not only was there a 2nd Dee but that Mac dated both of them. Here is Jordan Reid blog about it: When I graduated from college, I moved out to Los Angeles, where I knew absolutely no one except for my ex-boyfriend, Rob.
We began dating again, first casually, and then very seriously.
Shortly after I arrived in Los Angeles, Rob conceived of the idea for a Curb Your Enthusiasm-style show that centered on a group of four actor friends living in LA this, of course, was later changed to four friends working in a Philadelphia bar. It was exhausting work that took many months to complete: It was a busy time, but an exciting one — we all felt like we were participating in the creation of something really great, something with enormous potential.

When the two initial episodes were finished, Rob began shopping them around to networks. And a miracle happened: All of a sudden we were on an actual set, with for-real makeup artists and someone else to hold the boom mike. Things seemed to be going swimmingly, but we still had trouble believing that all of this would actually pan out.
I was surprised to learn that Rob, Glenn and Charlie had all been made executive producers, while I simply remained the lead actress.
I went very quickly from being at the center of the project to standing on the periphery, and…truth? It felt like it had everything in the world to do with my gender.
