Audrey and Jeff are tired of finding a surrogate, but Jeff`s lesbian friend and teammate, Brenda (Sara Rue), agrees to help them. Adam is desperate for a boys` night, but gets stuck in the elevator. Russell`s mother, Bunny (Joan Collins), comes to town with expensive gifts, but leaves after cutting Russell off from his trust fund. Anyway, with no possibility of replacement, Jeff and Audrey went to Jeff`s softball banquet. Real chic party. As insignificant as it may be, I appreciate the fact that Jeff`s softball team added some continuity to the show. It`s like in the early days of Seinfeld, when Jerry and George, who played on the Improv Comedy Club softball team, showed up a few times. There must be things that the characters do more than once, so why not be present in the show? The rest of the episode was no better or worse than the last few weeks, which means it was a bit silly. Russell`s mother, Bunny (Joan Collins), has arrived in town and expressed her love to him as gifts. Timmy intervened, and the result was that Bunny cut Russell off so he could become a man. I anticipate that the savings from his well-paying job at Dad`s business for years will help cover his new life expenses. But of course, throw a 40+ year old “in the cold” because his South African assistant suggested showing him some emotion.
Is that the best thing you can write for an actress like Collins? I realize it`s unrealistic to believe this, but I`ll do it anyway – it seems that all my offers of constructive criticism have finally paid off: Rules of Engagement has once again picked up the plot of Jeff and Audrey`s surrogate. Boy, it was someone`s good idea! What I expected from the confrontation with Brenda (Sara Rue), the lesbian alibi, was a kind of crazy proposal to Audrey. Instead, we received an offer to be Jeff and Audrey`s replacement – the fact that she`s a lesbian could make the potential lifestyle awkward even better, assuming she moves in with Jeff and Audrey, or at least becomes a staple in her life in some meaningful way. I was a little surprised that there was no preparation for Brenda to make such an offer – a clock ticking and the fear that she would never have children, for example – but that it would be so. Jeff and Audrey found their bellies. Jeff and Audrey`s idea of the perfect candidate (Jaime Pressly, as Pam) to serve as a replacement is ruined by Russell`s affair with her. Meanwhile, Adam begins to train. In October 2010, Rue joined the cast of Rules of Engagement in a recurring role as a replacement for Brenda, Jeff and Audrey.  Potential mother number two was overweight, and what did Jeff do? He assumed she was pregnant and mentioned that she had to wait until she was born.
It`s inappropriate, but I`d like to think it`s better to assume someone is pregnant than just call them fat. I know it`s not acceptable to say this in polite company, but this lady had more than one belly. Timmy tries to teach Russell how to budget his money after his mother cuts him. To impress an old friend (Elaine Hendrix as Stephanie), Audrey pretends she`s still in her old job, trying to mentor an aspiring fashion writer (Vanessa Lengies as Julie). Meanwhile, Adam tries to get Jennifer to stop breaking her fingers. When Jeff and Audrey decide to buy a new rug, they give their old “broken” rug to Jennifer and Adam. Jeff and Audrey try to go to an adoption fair and end up with great confusion. Sara Rue is an American actress.

It was announced in December 2011 that Rue would be writing and starring in a new show on The CW called Poseurs, about a young woman named Lucy whose life is turned upside down when her fiancé moves and her best friend Alexandra moves in.
The two friends pretend to be a lesbian couple and marry to live in the beautiful building, which only allows married couples.  And I don`t know what happened to Adam, but it`s not worth thinking about. Just stupid. Rue began her acting career at the age of nine and appeared in the 1988 film Rocket Gibraltar as the daughter of Kevin Spacey. Rue played a very young Roseanne in Roseanne and Dan`s first meeting at a dance on the television show Roseanne.  Audrey, upset by her appearance in a photo of Jeff`s boss, Larry (Holmes Osborne), decides to replace the photo. Meanwhile, Russell tries to cut back on expenses and temporarily moves in with Timmy. When his love life doesn`t evolve at the desired pace, Jeff takes matters “into his own hands”, which prompts Audrey to spice things up.
Russell invites Timmy on a trip to Miami, but doesn`t tell Timmy he`s afraid to fly. In 2014, Rue appeared in a recurring role as Candace, fiancée of Christy`s ex-husband in the CBS sitcom Mom.
