Access Hollywood

1996, TV Show



Desperate Housewives hottie Eva Longoria adamantly dismisses talk that she is dating Oscar winner Jamie Foxx, in whose new music vid she appears and with whom she looked cozy in many post-Golden Globes photos. "It's the silliest thing!" she says, addressing the rumor on Access Hollywood. "That is not true. Jamie and I are really good friends, and actually he's better friends with Tony [Parker, Longoria's beau]." For the time being, at least. read more


Speaking of the Globes, as she indicated during a super-awkward red-carpet chat with E!'s Isaac Mizrahi, Hilary Swank is trying to salvage her marriage to Chad Lowe. "We're still trying to save it," she tells Access Hollywood. "It's not over, we're not divorced. We've been together for over 13 years, and there's a lot of love there." Aww, let's hope the two-time Oscar winner wasn't acting just then. read more


Justin Timberlake is siding against the website that posted allegedly stolen photos of his former flame, Britney Spears, with her new baby. (Oh, Spears' husband, Kevin Federline, was in them, too.) "That's crossing the line," Timberlake told Access Hollywood on Monday. "That's her baby and those are her baby pictures." And in that instant, Justin found the hook for his next single. read more

Maria Menounous Is Hollywood's It Girl

Maria Menounos

Last month, Maria Menounos left a three-year gig at Entertainment Tonight to serve as both a special correspondent for Access Hollywood and a contributor to NBC's Today. What's it all mean? The 27-year-old Greek goddess found a few minutes between her new jobs to speak with about the move and to weigh in on a watershed day in infotainment history. When you were in the 1996 Miss Teen USA pageant, you told host Bob Goen that when you "grew up," you wanted to work with him on ET — and your wish came true. Kinda wishing now you'd aimed for world peace?Maria Menounos: That and a pu read more

Today's column was written by Matt Webb Mitovich.


In what I can only guess is considered some sort of career move — assuming, that is, that the two shows are not one and the same — former Entertainment Tonight reporter Maria Menounous has taken a job as a special correspondent for Access Hollywood. As part of the deal, Menounous (which, by the way, is Greek for "miniskirt fanatic") will also serve as a contributor for NBC's Today. read more

Do you have any new scoop on ...

Question: Do you have any new scoop on the rumor that Kelly Monaco is leaving General Hospital for Desperate Housewives?

Answer: It's not true. Marc Cherry told us so himself last month. "I was asked by Access Hollywood about that, and I responded politely because I have never entertained the idea, and I don't know Kelly's work," he explained to my colleague, Bruce Fretts. "So when they asked, 'Is it going to happen?' I didn't want to say, 'Absolutely not.' That would have been rude. [Kelly is] probably a fine actress. I just don't have any plans to u read more

Inside Pat O'Brien's World

After seven years at Access Hollywood, Pat O'Brien has taken his hypester act over to Entertainment Tonight's new spin-off, The Insider (debuting tonight; check TV Guide listings). The professional schmoozer took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to give us the scoop on the new gig, his ugly split with Access and a certain farewell e-mail that got leaked to the New York Post. TV Guide Online: How will The Insider be different than, say, the 78 other ET clones on the air?Pat O'Brien: A four-letter word: Time. We'll have more time to do things. Entertainment Tonight will be the record of the day and we'll be able to fill in a lot of blanks. TVGO: Conventional wisdom says that viewers' attention spans are decreasing, though.O'Brien: But their appetite for celebrity news is not. I wouldn't be here if I didn't think it would work. TVGO: What's the read more
