When it comes to acting, Laura Linney knows no fear. She has embodied everyone from steely First Lady Abigail Adams in HBO's John Adams to FDR's mousy cousin/lover in the recent biopic Hyde Park on Hudson. But with her Golden Globe-winning performance on The Big C, she took on a seemingly impossible feat: making cancer funny.
Now the show is being put to rest with a four-episode finale, but neither Linney nor her character, Cathy, is going down quietly. Tonight's episode finds her struggling with chemotherapy — she wants to stop treatment so she can feel well enough to take care of her family and make sure they'll be strong enough to survive without her.
Soon after the show's fourth season wrapped, the 49-year-old three-time Emmy winner shared her thoughts about the end of Cathy's journey.
Anthony Ryan Auld, Emilio Sosa and Uli Herzner
Project Runway crowned its second All-Stars champ Thursday night. In a typical all-stars twist to make the competition more difficult (and more torturous!) the remaining three designers only had four days to complete a full mini collection with as many (or few) pieces as they wished using a budget of $3,000.
So did Uli, Emilio or Anthony Ryan win? Let's take a look at the final harrowing runway:
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Katie Holmes' decision to divorce may have caught many by surprise, but apparently it was a long time coming for the actress.

The Project Runway: All Stars judge says...
Some thoughts on a few of the shows that got 2012 off to a (mostly) promising start. Which means I've already forgotten that ABC's grotesquely unfunny Work It exists — and if you thought that was bad, wait until you see (or better yet, don't) next week's comedy disasters: CBS' offensively stereotypical Rob and NBC's rancid hangover of a dud Are You There, Chelsea? But for now, let's accentuate the (mostly) positive.
Can Austin Scarlett finally sew up a win on Project Runway? Or is it Mondo Guerra's turn to take to the victory catwalk?
On Thursday at 9/8c on Lifetime, Project Runway returns with a special All Stars edition that brings back 13 designers. With a new host, supermodel Angela Lindvall, judges — design icon Isaac Mizrahi and...
Project Runway All Stars
In fashion, you're either in or you're out. On reality TV, you're on or you're off. But, in the case of 13 Project Runway veterans, you're back for an all-star season.
Lifetime on Monday announced the show's alumni who'll again compete in the game of sewing, cutting and crying in Project Runway All Stars. The 12-episode series will feature an entirely different administrative lineup than its source show (now in its ninth season). Supermodel Angela Lindvall is taking over Heidi Klum's role as host...
Iman and Isaac Mizrahi
The Project Runway-ish competition is back tonight at 10/9c on Bravo with a Survivor-like alteration (two teams of six instead of 12 lone designers). We needled The Fashion Show hosts Iman and Isaac Mizrahi for the skinny. ...
Fashion Show - Isaac Mizrahi, Kelly Rowland, Fern Mallis
Bravo's new reality competition, Fashion Show, has some big shoes to fill after Project Runway's contentious move to Lifetime, but host Isaac Mizrahi thinks the Runway comparison will "go away" because the drama on his show is "so engrossing."
Unlike its predecessor, Fashion Show (premieres Thursday at 10 pm/ET) brings an added element to their fashion competition series: ...
