"Golden Girls with Men" TV Series (20??)
Rose McGowan told The Associated Press
in February of 2008 that she spent most of the writer's strike ... writing. "I'm writing a TV show about old men. I have kind of a yen for them. It's going to be like a Golden Girls
, but with men. They are just so funny and hilarious and sweet and kind of crotchety," she said. "I'll probably have to cast younger and then make up the actors to be older, because my dream actors are all dead. I mean, I'd love to use Jack Lemon. But he's dead. Or James Garner! Actually, he's not dead. Yet," she said.
Rose did this in her spare time so who's to say if the series would ever see the light of day but it certainly sounds like a fun, interesting project we'll keep following if there are ever any other developments from Rose, the TV series writer!

Welcome to Los Angeles
Rose McGowan co-wrote and starred in a play titled "Welcome to Los Angeles" back in the 1990s. It was staged in Seattle and Los Angeles.
Pinken Mint was owned, operated and designed by Rose McGowan and Natasha Andres. Formed in 2003, Pinken Mint took the task of developing and furthering the wonderful accessory, the purse caddy. The original purse caddies from the 1930s and 1940s used a 45 degree 'hook' to hang the purse. This 'hook' damaged the purse straps over time, so Pinken Mint developed a 90 degree, 'flat hook', allowing the purse straps to lie flat and therefore saving them from wear and tear.
"These were really popular in the '30s, and I love the '30s," Rose says of her bag caddies. They’re art deco-inspired, chic and surprisingly sturdy little hangers that easily attach to a restaurant table; as an added bonus, they’re decorated with semi-precious stones and come inside a totally cute canister.
"You can’t stick your bag on the floor — it’s disgusting. And if you try putting it behind your back, it can fall off your chair," Rose says, explaining some the potential perils.
The caddies come in five different varieties, with names like Pink Savannah, Mint Julep and Scarlett O — apparently, Rose and Natasha have a soft spot for Southern belles. How to choose which style is right for you? Fortunately their Web site, Pinken Mint (so named because the arm of the caddy is encircled with pink- and mint-colored rings), features a witty personality quiz to help you decide, as well as these words of wisdom: "A purse is a symbol of who you are. Your identity, health, beauty, fortune — all have a place in your purse, and it should therefore never be put at risk or sat upon."
It seems Rose's endeavor with Pinken Mint came to an end during the summer of 2007. If you look at their About Us section, any mention and even the picture of her has been removed.

Although the character Rose is voicing makes no appearance in the film she is a key person in the video game, her character arc having a profound effect on John Connor (Christian Bale). Angie is described as someone on the verge of completely giving up any hope for humanity's survival and is gratingly cynical throughout the game. The game will be making its way to store shelves on May 19, 2009 while the film hits theaters on May 22.
Based on the upcoming film by the same name, Terminator Salvation follows John Connor as he battles for survival against the forces of Skynet.

Darkwatch: Curse of the West (2005)
Rose McGowan gives her voice to Tala in this vampiric cowboy adventure video game as she captures Tala's dangerous sensuality as a half-vampire seductress of Native American descent. Tala plays an important role in Darkwatch
as a femme fatale with equal lusts for blood and power. Gamers assume the role of Jericho Cross, an outlaw gunslinger pulled into the ranks of a vampire-hunting secret society when he is inadvertently bitten by a vampire lord.
Sensuous and dangerous, Tala becomes Jericho's evil muse after luring him into a moment of passion where she urges him to bite her, making her into a powerful half-vampire like himself. Introducing a unique reputation judgment system that brings a role-playing game (RPG) element to an FPS, Darkwatch puts players in situations where they can overcome the evil flowing in Jericho's veins to save the American West from damnation, or succumb to it and join Tala in a reign of darkness.
Allstate Drunk Driving (1991)
Assumably previously unknown to all of Rose's fans, a great gem was recently discovered; an Allstate Drunk Driving commercial starring none other than Miss McGowan! It can be assumed that it was filmed in 1991, around the Encino Man
era. A big thank you goes out to spidermann26 for this find!
