Last Friday, Rosie O'Donnell composed some poetry about her return to television. Included are lines about how she had blown the deadline for publishing the poem online, as well as observations about the people she met that same night while eating dinner at Gibsons Steak House in Chicago.
As for what's to come on her new talk show, she wrote only this: "as I prepare to return / 2 something much bigger than a show / I am reminded how lucky I am / have always been / thank u oprah / here we go." O'Donnell says, so far, she feels no pressure. "I feel nothing but privilege, truthfully," she told reporters during a conference call Wednesday. ""For Oprah to not only ask me to be on ...
Jeanne Tripplehorn and Patricia Clarkson
For Jeanne Tripplehorn, her role in FIVE served as a reminder.
"A few months ago I got a phone call saying that Jennifer [Aniston] and Marta [Kauffman, co-creator of Friends] were doing the project and I immediately said yes," says Tripplehorn. "When we started filming, I realized that I hadn't had a mammogram in two years. So I rushed out to get one immediately. My wish is that when people see this film, it will remind them to do the same."

Ben Stiller, Bill Hader
Ben Stiller hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time, but the return appearance of the writer-actor (and brief SNL featured player) was overshadowed by the return of one of his most famous characters — model Derek Zoolander.
In a perfect match, Zoolander appeared alongside "Weekend Update" correspondent Stefon (Bill Hader) to promote his upcoming Halloween party in the middle of the Hudson River. He was dumb as ever ("am I on the news?"), but instead of "blue steel," Zoolander showed up off his "cold coffee" look and instead of The Derek Zoolander Foundation For Kids Who Can't Read Good and Want To Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too, all proceeds from his Halloween party will benefit The Derek Zoolander Foundation for Fat Kids Who...

For Pan Am star Christina Ricci, wearing the airline's iconic '60s flight attendant uniforms not only make her look the part, but also feel the part. And it all begins with squeezing into the historically accurate underwear.
"We have these undergarments that we wear, a girdle and a longline bra," Ricci told reporters in September. "The girdle keeps you from being able to do anything boyish like run or jump or take any large flights of stairs. The longline is a bra attached to a mini-corset so it basically makes you stand up really, really straight. ... You have to walk like a lady at all times, so immediately you're just put into this mindset of 'I'm a lady. I sit a certain way. I walk a certain way.'"
