8 Times Kelly Ripa Was a Bad-Ass, Dgaf Queen

26 April 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kelly Ripa does her - and that's why we love her. After a tense, week-long absence from Live! With Kelly and Michael - which began after the star, 45, was "blindsided" by the news that Strahan would be leaving to co-host Good Morning America - Ripa made a triumphant return to the show (and received a standing ovation). "Look, I am fairly certain that there are trained professional snipers with tranquilizer darts in case I drift too far off message," she said at the beginning of her opening speech. "I needed a couple of days to gather my thoughts. After 26 years »

People Review: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - Oh, Go On, Have Another Helping of Sweet, Fluffy Baklava

24 March 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On the subject of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, let's start with this: Nia Vardalos' follow-up to her word-of-mouth hit from long, long ago - 2002! - is a lot more enjoyable than the recent Zoolander 2 (15 years after the original) or Netflix's Fuller House (slightly more than two decades). Sequels and reboots are often like old friends who turn up hinting that they've been cosmetically "freshened" and looking instead as if they've had a complete body lift, internal organs included. Wedding 2 has no pretentions that way. The hair, the makeup, the jokes have barely changed. It's like the first film, »

24 March 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This Friday, a little movie titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters. Perhaps you may have seen an advertisement or two about it. The film marks the first official pairing of Bats and Supes in a feature film. Surely there are longtime fans eager to see them pec-to-pec, but some fans will be excited about the film's other big debut: Wonder Woman. Ever since Gal Gadot was cast in the role, comic book (and TV) fans have been eager to find out how Wonder Woman would be realized on the big screen. Shockingly, the character has never had »

The subversive messages snuck into Melrose Place

For 2 years in the 1990s, an art group snuck props containing hidden political messages into Fox’s glamorous soap, Melrose Place

When it comes to matters of morality and ethics, Us TV Networks are notoriously strict on what their shows may or may not depict. Remember the episode of Friends in which Rachel and Monica fight over the apartment’s last condom? After the fuss following Seinfeld’s condom episode, NBC stopped the creators from showing an actual condom wrapper, hence the use of a generic box.

The same went for A Different World episode Time Keeps On Slippin, when Producer-Director Debbie Allen was forced to have a character point to a handbag rather than show a packaged condom.

A similar stringent attitude applies to alcohol and drug references. In The Italian Bob episode of The Simpsons when Lisa gets drunk, Fox banned producers from showing her »

10 Movie Stars Who Have Written Novels

11 March 2016 10:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paul A. Hebert/AP

The shelves of book stores are full of movie stars. In fact, the autobiography sections are bursting with tearful actors retelling the stories of their terrible childhoods.

For God’s sake, we get it. You hated school so much that your only way of coping was pretending to be Cher in the movie Mask, from where your acting talent inevitably blossomed. Your mother had 18 kids so she sent you to live on your uncle’s farm in Wyoming where you found a Shakespeare book in a haystack and never looked back. Enough already.

Thankfully, some celebrities are fighting back. Far tucked away in the fiction stands lurk a bunch of novels written by actors better known for being on the other side of the camera. While some of these books had bad idea written all over them from the start, others are surprisingly good. So good, »

Christina Ricci: 8 Roles That Have Defined Her Career

12 February 2016 10:37 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros

12th February 2016 marks the 36th birthday of Christina Ricci. For the many readers who watched the actress grow up on screen (or, for that matter, grew up with her), this news is doubtless enough to leave one feeling very old.

Yes, it’s been almost 26 years since Ricci first lit up screens as the daughter of Cher and younger sister of Winona Ryder in Mermaids, and the decades since have seen her endure not only as a successful actress, but also as a poster child for generations of Goths, emos and doubtless many other ‘alternative’ sub-factions we might name.

Ricci has arguably never quite achieved the level of mainstream success her many admirers had once expected, and yet in a sense this seems only fitting, given she has built her career on playing figures who do not quite fit in with the mainstream: outsiders, misfits, troubled souls, those »

Chaz Bono Opens Up to Oprah Winfrey About How Body Dysphoria Stalled His 75-Lb. Weight Loss

3 February 2016 8:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For Chaz Bono, transitioning was the key to helping him finally shed a negative self-image - and the excess weight that came with it. In an exclusive sneak peek at Saturday's Oprah: Where are They Now?, the transgender trailblazer (also son to Cher and the late Sonny Bono) opens up about a major internal struggle that prevented him from being his best, and most healthy, self. "I would have never been able to do it before [transitioning]," Bono, 45, tells Oprah Winfrey. "I was too disconnected from my body, and the dysphoria that I had with my body was too much »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ premiered

1 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

34 years ago today, a new talk show favorite was born when Late Night with David Letterman debuted. Letterman hosted Late Night on NBC until 1993, when the network chose Jay Leno over Letterman to take Johnny Carson’s place as host of The Tonight Show. Letterman then moved to CBS and launched Late Show with David Letterman. On both Late Night’s first show in 1982 and Late Show’s first episode in 1993, Bill Murray was the first guest. He was a frequent guest on both, with 44 appearances between the two shows. In the final episode of Late Show with David Letterman last May, Murray presented item No. 1 on the show’s star-studded final Top 10 list. Other notable February 1 happenings in pop culture history: • 1896: Giacomo Puccini opera La bohème had its world premiere in Turin, Italy. 100 years later, the massive popularity-bound musical Rent premiered in New York — Jonathan Larson based Rent »

Saturday Night Live Recap: Ronda Rousey Hosts

24 January 2016 4:16 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our host for tonight is Ronda Rousey, who has won a lot of medals and championships for being Very, Very Strong. Like, seriously. She could knock you out in a second. It is a little terrifying, but also inspiring in a “You go, girl” kind of way. And now she’s got a burgeoning acting career, with roles in The Expendables 3, Furious 7, and Entourage 1 and God Willing Only. She will make her comedy debut in the upcoming Do Nothing Bitches, based on a script by Sisters writer Paula Pell in which Rousey plays a bootcamp instructor putting suburban housewives, one of which is played by Tina Fey, in their place. Tonight seemed to be Rousey’s chance to prove her comedy chops, but she honestly didn’t get much of a chance-- she only truly starred in one sketch, and made minimal to no appearances in all of the others. »

The water will arrive at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan on Wednesday, according to the release, and the bank "will immediately begin the distribution process to those who need it most for drinking, cooking and washing."

Meet George Miller: Oscar-Nominated Director of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

15 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The man behind one of this summer’s biggest hits, and now a best picture nominee, Mad Max: Fury Road has been directing films for four decades but many fans would have a hard time picking him out of a lineup. George Miller, the 70-year-old visionary director behind all four films in the Mad Max franchise, earned the first best directing Oscar nomination of his career yesterday morning, though his history with the Academy goes all the way back to 1993.

To say Miller has an eclectic resume is an understatement, as his directing credits have bounced from post-apocalyptic action films to heavy family drama to family films. This year, his film is second in nominations to only The Revenant, from last year’s best director winner, Alejandro G. Inarritu.

Much of Miller’s anonymity springs from his ability to not be pegged down to one specific genre, »
