star Debra Messing has another big debut
to be excited about – but this one is off-Broadway.
The actress has welcomed a new dog that she has named Henry.
"LOVIN' on our new puppy," she Tweeted
Saturday, with a WhoSay photo
of herself hugging the adorable gray pup in a car. "Say hi to Henry!"
It looks like the tiny pooch is already bringing Messing good luck – just before the season 2 premiere of Smash
(Feb. 5 at 9 p.m. on NBC).
"Good hair day," she wrote Monday, with a WhoSay shot
of her signature red locks.
