Kate and Jon Gosselin
Kate Gosselin of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 says her husband's "irresponsible behavior" has created "added tension and stress" between the couple — and that coverage of Jon Gosselin's behavior hasn't helped either.
"It's disturbing and unfortunate that these tabloids have gone as far as they have to try and bring us down," Kate told Entertainment Weekly. "Jon's poor judgment and irresponsible ...
Kiefer Sutherland, Brooke Shields
New York police are investigating a report that Kiefer Sutherland head-butted a fashion designer in an argument concerning Brooke Shields.
The 24 star tried to be a hero after the designer, Jack McCollough, knocked into Shields at a bar, New York's Daily News reported Wednesday.
A police source told the newspaper that Sutherland had demanded the designer apologize to Shields before he head-butted him. Reps for Shields ...
Steven Pasquale and John Scurti, Rescue Me
Rescue Me fans have laughed at Sean Garrity for five seasons, but with the revelation in Tuesday's episode that Garrity has kidney cancer, Steven Pasquale's character will be more than just a punch line.
Despite the heavy subject matter, Pasquale says playing this story arc is "great fun." He particularly enjoyed the emotional breakdown at the doctor's office when Garrity learns his problems are more serious than just back pain. "I've been playing such comic relief on the show for so many years that it was good to get back to having some really serious material for a couple of episodes," Pasquale told TVGuide.com.
But don't look for Garrity to stay weepy ...
Stage manager Debbie Williams is "my right hand during these shows," Ryan Seacrest said via Twitter.
A stage manager who has served as American Idol host Ryan Seacrest's "right hand" since Season 1 was injured in one of two on-set accidents that plagued the show's Tuesday-evening production.
During rehearsals and less than two hours before this week's performance show went live, Debbie Williams fell from ...
TV Guide Network's Kimberly Caldwell (inset) shares her take on Danny and the rest.
Throughout American Idol's final weeks, as each sing-off signs off, TVGuide.com is checking in with TV Guide Network hosts/Idol alums Kimberly Caldwell and Justin Guarini for their particularly qualified takes on who soared, who stumbled, and which judge's review most rang true.
This week, Caldwell shares her thoughts on who rocked Rock Week, and who got rocked by it. Read her full review after the jump.
Paula Abdul has opened up for the first time about her struggle with prescription painkillers, revealing her dependence on them during the past 12 years.
"I could have killed myself," she told Ladies' Home Journal.
The American Idol judge, whose sometimes erratic behavior...
It's Rock Week on American Idol! Former Guns N' Roses axman Slash has mentored the kiddies, so we'll be on the lookout for dangling cigarette butts and impeccably conditioned mountains of curly hair. I'm sure that Tuesday's proceedings will stretch the boundaries of "rock" in new and "interesting" directions, as the contestants are not all equally suited to more hard-edged songs (we're looking at you, Kris and Danny!).

Now that Michaela McManus has left Law & Order: SVU, is there any word on who will replace her as the ADA in the fall? Having Stephanie March back would be great. — Jose
MICKEY: By my count, there could potentially be four vacancies in the cast next season, including the two big guns, the ADA slot and another member of the SVU team who I'm hearing is going to die in the June 2 season finale. And while I agree that March returning would be great, all signs point to something similar to this season's "dual ADA" situation happening. Who would you cast? Send your suggestions and I'll bring them to the producers myself.
I heard a very nasty rumor that Michael Weatherly is leaving NCIS. When? Why? It would take an amazing actor to fill the hole left in Gibbs' family/team if Tony left. — Laura
MATT: It is entirely likely that Tony will be a victim of ... semantics. When I asked NCIS boss Shane Brennan about the rumor that Gibbs will lose a team member by season's end, he said ...
Tim Roth, Lie To Me
Tim Roth understands victims and victimizers alike. As a child, he was abused by someone he won't name, except to say it wasn't either of his parents. Throughout his career, he has played both brutal victimizers (in his Academy Award-nominated turn as Rob Roy's villain, for example,) and the horribly victimized (most notably as a cop in Reservoir Dogs and a home-invasion victim in Funny Games).
Roth has a strange gift for making both extremes empathetic: Is there a more Rothian character than Pulp Fiction's would-be stickup man, Pumpkin? At first he earns our revulsion, but by the end of the film, as he looks down the barrel of Samuel L. Jackson's gun, we fear for his life.
The actor's exploration of victims and victimizers continues in his first television series, Lie to Me, which airs its penultimate episode Wednesday (9 pm/ET, Fox) and concludes its first season next week. The show offers an alternative to 24's violent interrogation scenes and those of other more standard crime procedurals. Roth plays Cal Lightman, an expert at reading emotions who gets suspects to confess to even the worst crimes without laying a hand on them.
