Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi
Ellen DeGeneres is a funny lady. Even when it comes to rumors of trouble in her own marriage!
On Wednesday's episode of her daytime talk show, DeGeneres addressed a report that she and wife Portia de Rossi are having problems...
Portia De Rossi
Portia De Rossi wasn't afraid to get personal when she reunited with the cast of Arrested Development on Thursday's Inside the Actors Studio. When James Lipton asked de Rossi about her marriage to Ellen Degeneres, the actress revealed her initial anxiety about coming out in Hollywood.
Warden Gentles is locking up the Bluths one last time. The cast of Arrested Development will reunite on Inside the Actors Studio, hosted by recurring guest-star with James Lipton.
Will Arnett and Jason Bateman
Two weeks after he locked the final cut of Netflix's Arrested Development revival, show creator Mitch Hurwitz is catching up on TV, traveling to New York and checking social media to gauge the reaction to the fruits of two years of labor. "Right now my hope is that the people who are interested in the Bluth family give the show a try," he says of the new episodes, which each focus on a different character yet are intertwined.
The 15 Arrested episodes were released simultaneously on May 26. Fan reaction has been decent, but critics were mixed, with some of those negative reviews reportedly hurting Netflix's stock price (although anticipation for the show previously helped boost the streaming service's stock).
Hurwitz tweeted on May 28 that critics were "resisting change." But in a lengthy chat last week with TV Guide Magazine, he clarified what he meant, and also discussed his future plans for the show. Hurwitz even addressed Internet chatter about star Portia de Rossi's appearance. An edited transcript follows.
Portia de Rossi
Ever since Season 4 of Arrested Development premiered on Netflix last week, many viewers have been scratching their heads — and not just about the new recurring ostrich motif.
Portia de Rossi, who reprised her role as "activist" Lindsay Bluth-Funke, looks vastly different on screen than she does in more recent interviews and photos. The noticeable change in her appearance has led many viewers to wonder whether de Rossi had had plastic surgery.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry
Tension was high during a mini-Friends reunion — but it was all fun and games for The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In the staged video, Jennifer Aniston heads to former co-star Matthew Perry's house for advice for her co-hosting gig on Wednesday's Ellen. Perry, who's not too happy that she showed up unannounced, doesn't have a lot of words of wisdom to offer — and could not be more annoyed when Aniston references his recently canceled series Go On. Aniston, however, is stunned to find out that he's sleeping with Courteney Cox. Soon Portia de Rossi and DeGeneres herself attempt to stealthily slip out of Perry's house.
TV shows we want to reunite
Watch below for the reunion, as well as Aniston's chat with Ellen on the show:
Arrested Development's return is less than one week away, so break out the virgin pina coladas and let's get this party started! Alia Shawkat sat down with TVGuide.com to discuss the cult comedy's triumphant return, the "mysterious" new format and everyone's favorite incestuous cousins.
Come May 26, Pop Pop won't be the only one to get a treat. After a seven-year hiatus, Arrested Development returns Memorial Day weekend on Netflix. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time to watch all three seasons in anticipation, but we think 10 episodes is completely doable (they are only 22 minutes each, after all). Here are the most essential episodes to watch before Season 4:
On the next Arrested Development ...
Michael (Jason Bateman) is looking to make a new start, Buster (Tony Hale) is plagued with night terrors, Gob (Will Arnett) is still performing tricks illusions, and Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) is doing a poor job of trying to convince her husband Tobias (David Cross) that she still loves him. All that according to the newly unveiled trailer for Season 4 of the cult comedy, which premieres on Netflix Sunday, May 26, with 15 new episodes released simultaneously.
