Parks and Recreation's Retta Wants More Love for Her Character
02/27/2014 AT 07:15 PM EST
Speaking to PEOPLE, Retta revealed she's pushing for love. Donna has enjoyed a wild dating life, but Retta thinks it's time for a real relationship.
"I want there to be a romantic interest in her future, and I keep bringing it up to our executive producer," Retta says. "I've kind of put it in his brain, and I believe that he shall hook a sister up, as they say."
They're strictly platonic, but Donna and Aziz Ansari's Tom Haverford have long been the show's most dynamic – and luxury loving – duo. But hold on to your fine leather goods: Retta says "Treat Yoself Day", when Donna and Tom spend frivolously on whatever their hearts desire, is purely fictional.
"Aziz is the busiest man in Hollywood. I don't have time to go get massages with Aziz and he doesn't have time to get mimosas with me," she explains, laughing. "So no, we don't have Donna and Tom's relationship. I don't think there's anyone who has Donna and Tom's relationship."
One thing Retta does has time for? Live-Tweeting every jaw-dropping plot twist on Scandal. The Kerry Washington-led drama is known to embrace social media, and avid Tweeter Retta lends her hilarious voice to the frenzy. But listen up, Shonda Rhimes: Retta dreams of being more than a fan one day.
"I would love, love to be on Scandal as like a rival fixer," she tells PEOPLE. "I'm sure that Olivia Pope would give me a smack-down."
If a guest spot isn't possible, we're pulling for a crossover. After all, Leslie Knope's up-and-down political career could always use a little Pope & Associates crisis management.
Catch Retta in the newest Parks and Rec airing Thursday at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
