We think it is fair to say that 2008 has not been the best year for Rose, professionally speaking. Many of her projects have been delayed, there has not been any major releases and the nasty gossip continues. However, she did co-host The Essentials and her private life seems to be in bloom as she recently announced her engagement to Robert Rodriguez.
This compilation of 2008 highlights is by the Rose-McGowan.com staff. Please feel free to post your own choices at the forum.

• Best news:
Both agree: The engagement of Rose McGowan and Robert Rodriguez – if Rose is happy, then so are we! We love the idea of Rose co-hosting The Essentials, even if we did not get to see any of it. Also, the announcement of Red Sonja was certainly exciting.
• Worst news:
Both agree: The passing of Rose’s beloved Fester. All of us fans know how much he meant to Rose. We also hate to see so many of Rose’s projects post-poned and how about the IRA comment and the aftermath? We still shudder to think of it all.
• Favorite magazine cover:
There was not really any covers this year.
Note: Mycah’s favorites are from Self Service magazine, available only through a forum member who shared their book. We will be adding our scans of this soon.
• Favorite 2008 project:
Riikka says: Unfortunately, there is not many to choose from. 50 Dead Men Walking was only shown at the Toronto Film Festival and I do not have TCM so I didn’t get to see The Essentials. So, unfortunately, I have no answer this year.
Mycah says: The Essentials
• Favorite Rose McGowan quote of 2008:
Riikka says: “I love anybody who’s dedicated to anything and lets their weirdo flag fly. I’m all for it.”
Mycah says: “Nobody comes before my dog. Nobody.”
• Most anticipated Rose release for 2009:
It looks like there will only be one so it is the same as last year: 50 Dead Men Walking.
I agree with everything you’ve written.
I hope for Rose, 2009 will bring her happy news and new good projects :heart:
Happy New Year!
