You know Doug Savant as Matt, Heather Locklear's long-suffering gay tenant on Melrose Place. Denied on-screen kisses and doomed to date bad men, this soap stud had it rough.

Back in the '90s, before Queer as Folk and Will & Grace were hits, goodhearted Matt broke some TV barriers. "They did show me getting out of the same bed that another man was in," Savant says, "but because of the paucity of gay characters in TV, everybody wanted to see their version of read more
Why do they call Katie Brown "a young Martha Stewart on a budget" and "Martha for Generation X"? Well, her show does urge busy, urban women to go the extra mile in their cooking, decorating, and gardening pursuits. But that's where these ladies' similarities end.
Brown's new show Katie Brown (debuting Sunday at 7 pm/ET on Style) has more in common with some of her favorite do-it-yourself personalities like British homemaking vixen Nigella Lawson and cutie chef Bobby Flay than Martha's more traditional take on hostessing the perfect dinner party.

As a struggling young actress back in her salad days, Brown also went the catering route. Later, she read more

When the death knell is finally sounded likely at the end of the show's upcoming ninth season don't look to get your Chandler fix from a spinoff. "I feel like I've just been involved in maybe one of the greatest shows of all time, so I don't think I'm going to be too quick to head back into a risky situation, tel read more
Watch your back, Britney Spears Berlin vocalist Terri Nunn is about to hit the pop charts, baby, one more time. That's right, although it's been more than 15 years since she shot to No. 1 with the love theme from Top Gun, the New Wave siren can still take our breath away. In fact, on Voyeur, her revamped group's first full-length album of original material (out Sept. 3), the once-and-future MTV star, hotter than ever at age 41, tears through 11 tracks that are as provocative as the original line-up's classics, "Sex (I'm a... )" and "No More Words." Plus, she tells TV Guide Online that after this month's video shoot for the disc's first single, "Blink of an Eye," she aims to make the recording industry safe once again for every other female artist who is not a girl, not yet an old woman read more
This fall, Emmy nominee Wendie Malick kicks off her seventh year as Nina Van Horn on Just Shoot Me. What's next for Blush magazine's fey fashionista? Since Paula Marshall who played Nina's long-lost daughter, Chloe, last season has her own series, Hidden Hills, it looks like she's history. How will Nina go on?
Quite easily, actually. Malick suspects she'll be reunited with crooner Huey Lewis, who's previously guest-starred as Nina's love interest. "There was a real nice chemistry there," she says. "It was the first time I got to have a boyfriend who was my age and who didn't have something really wrong read more
