Rupert Everett Slams Jennifer Aniston's "Tasteless" Career

Rupert Everett; Jennifer Aniston

Don't expect Rupert Everett to work with Jennifer Aniston any time soon — especially if she makes another "tasteless rom-com."

2010's Best Episodes: Vampire Diaries' Killer Transformation and Betty White's Dusty Muffin

Vampire Diaries

It was a great year for TV, which made it very difficult to choose the top 25 episodes of 2010. Recalling and, in some cases, rewatching the stand-out moments was a holiday treat. We got our first glimpse of a bespectacled Clark Kent and saw Snooki pummel Angelina. We wept as Jack Shephard took his final breath and cheered as Leslie took down a mischievous rodent wreaking havoc in Pawnee. Here's the third batch of TVGuide.com's weeklong countdown of the year's best episodes. (Catch up first with Episodes 25-21 and Episodes 20-16.) read more

Jane Badler Returns to V As a New, "More Mature" Diana


When ABC's V returns, the alien invasion series will welcome a very familiar face.

Jane Badler, who starred in the original 1983 miniseries, returns to the world as Diana, the mother of the ruthless leader of the Visitors, Anna (Morena Baccarin).

But Diana 2.0 is different in significant ways, Badler says. She's a lot more... read more
