One Tree Hill
One Tree Hill's Brooke Davis has come a long way.
Remember the selfish and morally challenged cheerleader of yesteryear? It's hard to believe that was the same person who nearly drowned trying to save someone's life on Tuesday's stormy midseason finale.
Titled "Darkness on the Edge of Town," the episode featured a dangerous rain storm and car accident that put Brooke and Jamie thisclose to death on the infamous Tree Hill bridge (Remember when Nathan saved Rachel and Cooper in Season 3 in the same place?) After saving three people's lives, the fashion maven chose to stay with Jamie, who was pinned behind his seatbelt, and then selflessly pleaded with her fiancé, Julian, to save the little boy first as the levee broke and water flooded the car.
Fox and the CW have each picked up a drama from new production company FishBowl Worldwide Media, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Kirsten Dunst isn't apologizing for partying a little too hard.
"When you're a single girl in your twenties, yeah, you go out with your friends," she tells the December 2010/January 2011 issue of BlackBook magazine. "And sometimes you drink too much. I don't know anybody else, with any type of job, who doesn't do that."
Jane Carrey and Jim Carrey

Amber Heard credits GLAAD for being a reason she was able to come out.
Walking the red carpet at GLAAD'S 25th anniversary party with her partner, Tasya van Ree, Heard told AfterEllen.com: "GLAAD is one of the many reasons that I, as a 24-year-old, can come out ... If it weren't for opinions being changed, people being influenced, people being engaged to do the right thing, then there would be no prerogative for anyone to come out."
