With costumes like The Real Housewives of New Jersey, you have an excuse to flaunt your flashy side. Don't usually have an occasion to wear fake eyelashes, hair extensions and five-inch heels? Here it is.
In Miss Representation, a new documentary airing tonight on OWN, Jennifer Seibel Newsom probes the distorted way the media portrays women—and how it affects girls. The director tells Jessica Bennett such depictions damage self-image.
"Ron, I'm done! No seriously, bro, I'm DONE! You ... don't deserve ME. DONE!" The infamous reality TV couple Sammi Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has finally called it quits. I'm sure it won't be long until Ronnie starts running back to Sam, but hopefully she stands her ground this time. Just in case Sammi has a moment of weakness and decides to take her former beau back, I've compiled a list to remind her that Ron is the worst boyfriend in the world and she's better off single.
It looks like sexual tension in sitcoms is over. Women tell a very specific set of harmless lies. There are five awesome and unconventional places to meet a guy. How you can tell the difference between dating and just hanging out. How to make a friend with benefits into a girlfriend. Seriously, are we getting male birth control or not?
There is one new show that seems more realistic than, say, Zooey Deschanel being single for longer than 36 seconds. It's "Up All Night," the new comedy on NBC starring Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph and Will Arnett (aka Mr. Amy Poehler). It's funny, it's original, and I think it might just be the most feminist new show on television right now.
Last night's premiere of Pan Am confirmed at least one thing: The newest drama to idealize the early 1960s isn't sharp enough to be Mad Men, but it's certainly not vapid enough to be The Playboy Club. And thank goodness for the latter, because I know I'm not alone in looking forward to another time machine-style escape back into the era of pastel pillbox hats and glossy LIFE magazines.
Perhaps this will be the season that Liz Lemon finds love? 30 Rock has put out a casting call for a new love interest, and it certainly has our mental gears turning. On the show, Tina Fey's character has been wooed (or tried to woo) Dean Winters, Jason Sudeikis, Matt Damon, and Jon Hamm. Who could possibly be next in that trajectory? The show is looking for an unknown between the ages of 36 and 40, who can embody "California-bred with liberal values and a youthful innocence."
In her new series, 'New Girl,' premiering tonight on Fox, Zooey Deschanel plays a girl in an emotional whirl. Fresh from a breakup with her boyfriend, Deschanel's character, Jessica Day, makes a bold move... by shacking up with three guys she met Craigslist-style.
Lately, I've noticed a lot of famous dudes talking about their nude scenes. After the jump, your favorite males stars on taking it all off for their art.
Phil McGraw, the superstar psychologist, turns 60 today. His shows are notable for their no-nonsense approach to guests' personal problems, and millions respond to his straightforward advice. In fact, Oprah Winfrey was so enamored of Dr. Phil's principles that she made him a star. That story is well-known, but here are a few things you may not know about the doctor.
It's time to break out those dancing shoes again! The TV world is all abuzz with the upcoming premiere of the celebrity dance competition on Sept. 19, and especially with the announcement of the Season 13 cast this past Monday, ABC and Dancing With The Stars made history by casting Chaz Bono, its first transgendered contestant.
Question: My hubby and I don't like the same TV programs at all. We end up in different rooms most night, even though we both work all day and then rush to take care of the kids. We're both comfortable with the arrangement, but does that spell distance and detachment down the road??
Last night's show started out with "High-Pitched Kasey" vowing to kick Jake to the curb. Will he succeed? Ask again in two hours. But first—a challenge! Aptly called "Target On Your Back," each lady was asked a question, which they got to answer via throwing a paint-filled egg at a dude. Chris Harrison threw out hard-hitting questions like: "Who do you want to see go home this week?" You can guess who got pelted with that answer. (Here's a hint: It was Jake.)
Whatever hope last night's episode had to entertain was totally overshadowed by the news that broke earlier in the day … Kate Plus 8 is getting axed. After one lackluster episode into Season 2, it looks like Kate Gosselin's 15 minutes may finally be up. Of course, none of this was discussed on the show because it was shot months ago when Kate was still living under the delusion that she's interesting enough to sustain another season. (Though TLC was lightning-quick to create a little countdown icon in the lower corner to the show's finale.)
Just as we were getting our Dior slip dresses in knots over the possibility of another Sex And The City movie, debating whether Blake Lively should play Samantha or Selena Gomez would make a good Charlotte...they've pulled the rug out from underneath us and are putting the show back on TV.
