SHE PLAYS Herself, a 26-year-old medical student from Durham, North Carolina, who lost her leg to a birth defect. Kelly came to Survivor: Nicaragua prepared with a specially designed artificial limb. "I don't think my leg is going to be a factor," she told TV Guide Magazine before filming began in June...
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Well, well, well. Isn't this what we've all been waiting for with baited breath?
First of all, no Beverly Hills babe would ever stoop to being called a housewife. How plebeian. How gauche. Hollywood wives please, far more glamorous! And I should know, since I wrote the book about the sleek, groomed, ambitious, social-climbing wives of Hollywood icons. But let's examine the women in question on this new Housewives franchise. They might be affluent, pretty (with a definite nod to various surgical procedures), but do they represent Beverly Hills? They sure give it a big try.
First off, there's Kim and Kyle Richards, sisters who were once child actresses and whose current claim to fame is that they are Paris Hilton's aunts...
Life gets even more unexpected for poor Cate (Shiri Appleby) when the CW's most sensitive drama Life Unexpected hosts one Hill of a crossover tonight at 9/8c. "We're doing this big music festival ...
Have you been missing The Closer since it wrapped its season last month? Emmy-winning star Kyra Sedgwick is already back on the beat for a five-episode winter season that begins in December, and co-star Tony Denison tells TV Guide Magazine that the holiday episodes' self-contained storylines will tread a fine line between ...
When people see Martha Plimpton, they often think, "Oh, that girl," as in the gawky teen who climbed into the caverns with Mouth, Chunk and the kid with all the cool gadgets in The Goonies. "I turned 14 on that movie," she says. "We had no idea there would be reunions and T-shirts and fan sites 25 years later!"
But while her peers hit rehab and the reality-TV circuit, the daughter of actors Keith Carradine and Shelley Plimpton became a rare thing for child stars — a character and stage actress. She filled her
The Young and the Restless
The most desperate housewife in soaps — The Young and the Restless' Nikki Newman — has secretly gone off the wagon after years of sobriety. But on October 21 she'll get busted! This vodka-sluggin' mama, played by the blazingly brilliant Melody Thomas Scott, didn't mean to relapse. Blame it on her nogoodnik secretary Meggie (Sean Young) who got Nikki hooked again by quietly spiking her fruit smoothies. Now Meggie, who wants to get her mitts on Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and his moolah, has joined forces with town pariah Deacon (Sean Kanan) to ruin the upcoming Nikki-Victor nuptials. Will they succeed? Will Nikki end up in Deacon's bed? TV Guide Magazine got the scoop from Thomas Scott.
TV Guide Magazine: Best. Storyline. Ever. There's nothing like our Nikki back on the sauce! It's been too long!
Thomas Scott: I was never happy with the way her initial addiction to drinking and pills ended so unrealistically years ago. She just woke up one morning and was fine. I mentioned that to [current Y&R head writer] Maria Bell at lunch ...
How I Met Your Mother
OK, this one goes out to anyone who has ever visited New York: Is Maury Povich really that ubiquitous?
According to last night's How I Met Your Mother, the talk-show host is apparently the most-seen celebrity around ...
Three faces of Boardwalk Empire grace a photo studio in Manhattan's meatpacking district on a sunny Saturday: Gretchen Mol is glowing, not only because she's expecting her second child, but because her makeup's done and she now sits rosy-hued as her stylist affixes fiery-red extensions to her blonde locks. Michael Pitt, the very image of laconic Hollywood cool in his gelled locks and pinstripes, lounges on a sofa languidly strumming his acoustic guitar. Finally, a haggard Steve Buscemi shuffles in. He's here on two hours sleep, having worked till 4am directing an episode of Nurse Jackie. He plops down, takes one look at the tape recorder ...

Question: My current favorite show on TV is Modern Family. How could anyone not love that show? My other favorite show is Friday Night Lights. How it has never been a huge hit baffles me. Both are such refreshing, positive shows about everyday families. There are no other shows that portray families in such a realistic way. Instead of amoral teenagers who have little to no parental influence or just overly dramatic dysfunctional families, these shows celebrate the best of what families are: They fight with and for their each other, but it is because ...
