This week, viewers got their second look at Jennifer Coolidge's Sophie Kerchinsky on "2 Broke Girls." The glamorous Polish house cleaner may seem like an odd personality, but it's not as outlandish and fanciful as one might imagine. Coolidge talked about the character on "The Talk" (Weekdays, Syndicated on CBS), revealing that she was basing her portrayal on her own cleaning lady from her time in New York recently.
Like Sophie, Coolidge's cleaning lady was a Polish woman whose glamour and style seemed a sharp contrast to her profession. She had diamonds and always had her hair done and make-up on. The crazy thing is to think that Coolidge hadn't said anything about this character to "Girls" co-creator Michael Patrick King. He came up with the idea of her as a Polish cleaning lady based on a different role she'd done.
"I love that somehow I get channel her," she said. "She just made vacuuming look so good."
This week's installment of "2 Broke Girls" saw Sophie hire the girls for a trial run with her cleaning company. She also learned that while Caroline isn't the typical working class gal, she definitely has a valuable skill set she brings to the table. The episode also showed how tight the girls have gotten as friends and partners, despite their fight over the hot almost-dead model.
Jennifer Coolidge has a recurring role on "2 Broke Girls," Mondays at 8:30 pm. EST on CBS. "The Talk" is syndicated daily on CBS affiliates. Check local listings for times.
