Either Amy Schumer is the most modest woman in show business — or else she needs to have her hearing checked. Consider the facts: The 32-year-old's surprise Comedy Central hit, Inside Amy Schumer, is entering its sophomore season with a rabid following. Like Schumer herself, the series — a kinetic mix of sketches, man-on-the-street-style interviews and her live stand-up — is at turns racy, shrewd and deliciously warped, saved from actual wickedness by an undercurrent of chipper naïveté. (It's no surprise that Schumer cites Shirley Temple as a major inspiration.) She is also touring the country with her wildly popular stand-up act — while simultaneously writing and starring in a Judd Apatow movie, slated for release next summer. And yet, when asked about becoming the next big thing — Kristen Wiig comparisons come to mind — she balks. "Um...
If you need your memory jogged about the ongoing plight of Once Upon a Time's fairy-tale menagerie, you're not alone. When the series returns after its hiatus, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and her son, Henry (Jared Gilmore), are enjoying an uncharacteristically tranquil existence in present-day New York City — with zero recollection of their magical past or of the unlucky inhabitants of Storybrooke. We met up with Morrison at Manhattan's Osteria Morini to ply her with pasta and wine for a peek at the secretive next chapter...
Sherry Lowe, Cynthia Giudici and Catherine Giudici
She had the groom, the ring and the wedding date. All Catherine Giudici needed was a dress. The graphic designer — who met her fiancé, Sean Lowe, on Season 17 of The Bachelor and will marry him live on ABC on Jan. 26 — recently hit a Los Angeles bridal salon.
"I wanted ...
Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer
Imagine for a moment that it's Thursday at 8pm. You innocently turn on your TV and flip to NBC, thinking maybe you'll catch an episode of Parks and Recreation. Instead, you encounter what is surely destined to be one of the most curious, ambitious and generally nutso undertakings in recent media history: A live (!), three-hour (!!) production of The Sound of Music, featuring country superstar Carrie Underwood (!!!) as Maria von Trapp.
Rest assured, you haven't been smoking edelweiss. This reimagining of the beloved classic about a plucky nun-turned-governess, her irresistible charges and their widower father in Nazi-occupied Austria is actually happening on network television...
The Real Housewives of Atlanta
It's Season 6 of Bravo's hit docuseries The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and these Georgia peaches are far from running out of juice. "We give you everything a great show should: excitement, drama, fighting, feuding and gossiping," says cast member Phaedra Parks. This year in particular promises to offer an embarrassment of riches, according to...
Lorri Tierney and Nikki Galarza
Launching the careers of pint-size celebrities is anything but child's play. Mother of All Talent — TVGN's new eight-part docuseries — follows the day-to-day operations of Tribute Talent, a Staten Island, New York-based agency that caters to precocious kiddos and their ambitious stage parents. The only characters more colorful than the fame-hungry clients? The owners themselves: Lorri Tierney, 43, and her hilariously unfiltered 64-year-old mom, Nikki Galarza. The ladies give us the lowdown on their family business....
Jenny McCarthy is a gal who knows how to play the hand she was dealt. After breaking into show business in 1993 with a Playboy pictorial, she has managed to build a career out of being a bombshell who just happens to sound like a truck driver...
You can't really fault Anna Gunn for craving a little peace and quiet. After six seasons of playing Skyler White — the steel-spined wife of crystal-meth kingpin Walter White on AMC's Breaking Bad — the 45-year-old actress has earned the right to take a breath...
Ah, summer camp: hallowed ground for singing "Kumbaya," celebrating rites of passage and forging relationships never meant to withstand the first fall frost. This micro-universe provides the setting for Camp, a new dramedy about the staff and campers at the Midwest's Little Otter Family Camp, where the s'mores being served up are a tad bittersweet.
