Timberlake's Ex Is Out for Blood

Jenna Dewan is Tamara

Revenge has a new name (and a sssmokin' body). Tamara, starring music-video-dancer-turned-actress Jenna Dewan and from the creator of Final Destination, is a new horror film now playing in New York before going into wider release on Feb. 17. Oh, and did we mention that revenge smells nice and flowery, too? Actually, that's just the fragrance (not Curious, you can pretty much bet) worn by Justin Timberlake's post-Britney girlfriend as she sits down for a one-on-one with TVGuide.com.

TVGuide.com: So the moral of this movie is what Mom always told us: "Don't pick on the drab girl who's into the occult or else she'll clean up nice and unleash on you a load of hurt."
Jenna Dewan:
Yes, and we like that. That's what I love about the movie, is that it does have a b read more

Housewives' Woodard Tries Something New

Alfre Woodard in Something New

In the romantic comedy Something New, in theaters today, Sanaa Lathan plays an upwardly mobile African American who, despite cries of foul from friends and family, finds herself falling in love with Simon Baker's hunky landscaper. Helping the conflicted miss sort through her feelings is Desperate Housewives' Alfre Woodard, playing mom to Lathan — as she did in Love & Basketball. TVGuide.com spoke with Woodard about Something New's important message, the certain something she brings to the table, and, of course, life on Wisteria Lane. TVGuide.com: Just recently, I interviewed your Something New read more

The West Wing There was radioactive...

The West Wing There was radioactive — and political — fallout in the air with tonight's Three Mile Island-meets-Hurricane Katrina scenario. In a classic example of West Wing wish fulfillment, we got to see how the Bartlet Administration might handle a massive national disaster. In a word: well. From the emergency's get-go, Bartlet took command with his "the buck stops with me" leadership style. (Hmmm, wonder what the writers were getting at there?) From venting the radiation to asking the engineers to keep working, to making the trip to the disaster site, POTUS was on top of his game. It was a good day's work, even if the prez was getting advice from Oz's Schillinger. With all that going on, Kate still had to keep track of that other China syndrome brewin read more

Scrubs Star Is a Wizard of Ha-Has

Donald Faison, Scrubs

Tonight at 9 pm/ET, NBC's Scrubs presents its 100th episode, featuring — no, not the death of someone close to Clark Kent — a humorous homage to The Wizard of Oz. This week's second helping guest-stars Jason Bateman and a whole lotta angry ostriches. Is this show officially off the hook? TVGuide.com spoke with Donald Faison, aka Turk, about crafting Scrubs' weekly remedy for the prime-time blahs. TVGuide.com: Donald Faison, pardon my French, but you are on one damn funny show.Donald Faison: Thanks, but where did you speak French in that? TVGuide.com: Um, when I said "Faison"? So do you get that a lot, people telling you that Scrubs read more

Desperate Housewives Anyone who's...

Desperate HousewivesAnyone who's been complaining about this show not being as good as it was last season (and you know you're out there) simply needed to watch tonight's episode, because, boy, did it kick butt! So many watercooler moments, where do I start? Definitely Alfre Woodard's best episode yet. Betty showing up on Bree's doorstep right before the other housewives came over was classic. How perfect for Betty to blackmail Bree — what a great way to shut her up! Loved the looks on all the women's faces when Betty walked out of Bree's kitchen. Earlier, I loved when Bree looked up and saw Caleb gazing out the window. Speaking of Caleb, the actor now playing the role, Nashawn Kearse, is doing a fantastic job. It's not an easy task to play a character who is mentally challenged. Just ask Rosie O'Donnell. Even earlier, the funniest line was Bree t read more

Everybody has been saying ...

Question: Everybody has been saying that Desperate Housewives is in a slump. I'm not sure if that's an opinion I truly agree with, or merely one I've acquired from others who have been saying so pretty much since the day after the second-season premiere aired. Whatever the case, I have to say there is one part of the show that I have come to loathe: George. In the first season he was a creepy character who proved to be an interesting wrinkle in Bree and Rex's marriage. This season, with Rex out of the picture, George has taken on a bigger role in Bree's life as well as the life of the show, and I, for one, can't say it has been for the better. We have gotten to see just what level of crazy he is, and to what lengths he will go to get what he wants. I mean, not only did he manipulate Bree into having sex with him when she obviously wasn't ready, but now he's killed her therapist and proposed to her just seven weeks after her husband's death (which he, of course, caused)! To me he is a ... read more

THE LONGORIA AND SHORT OF IT

Speaking of the Housewives: In the December issue of Cosmopolitan, Eva Longoria deflects talk of the divas dueling backstage by calling Marcia Cross "one of the kindest, warmest people," Felicity Huffman "a solid chick," Teri Hatcher a Martha Stewart-like cook and Nicollette Sheridan "the light of the set." Hmm, sounds like someone has a major beef with Alfre Woodard. read more

OK, is Bree's son gay? Or was...

OK, is Bree's son gay? Or was he lying the same way ABC did with their promos for this "surprising new Housewives"? Because I don't trust either. Nor should any of us after an hour so shock-anemic that Susan's totally uncharacteristic decision to buy Zach out of town — and away from the chronically underused Mike — almost passed for plot development. And don't even get me started on all the sex gags. We all know I'm no prude, but really, having Andrew describe the sound of his own mother's climax to tick off creepy George is just tacky, and the Solis' battle to win a conjugal visit felt forced, like the whole thing was cooked up to introduce the horny new lawyer headed for Gaby's bed. (Welcome back, Adrian Pasdar. Good luck with that one). At least Lynette finally got some stuff worthy of Felicity Huffman. Though again, I refuse to accept that our working mama's parenting skills are so schizo that her answer to Parker's separation anxiety would inv read more

DH spoilers?

Question: DH spoilers?


Answer: (SPOILER ALERT) We'll finally get a glimpse of that restless man-beast in Alfre Woodard's basement next month.
