The pneumatic Anna Nicole Smith was a modern-day Marilyn Monroe whose meteoric rise to fame took her from being a single mother in Texas to Playboy’s Playmate of the Year, international supermodel, actress, and reality television personality. But her sudden catapult to fame came with a price, as drugs, alcohol and reckless behavior led her down a path that ultimately resulted in her tragic death.
Directed by Mary Harron, written by John Rice and Joe Batteer, and co-starring Martin Landau (Cleopatra), Adam Goldberg (Untitled) Cary Elwes (No Strings Attached), and Virginia Madsen (Dune), Anna Nicole was produced by Sony Pictures Television and aired on The Lifetime Channel in June, »
TV shows about witches have had mixed success. Some have been ratings hits and have run for years while others have been cancelled after one season. How will Witches of East End perform for Lifetime? We'll have to wait and see.
Witches of East End revolves around the Beauchamps, a family of female witches in a seaside town. The cast includes Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Rachel Boston, Eric Winter, Daniel Di Tomasso, Mädchen Amick, Virginia Madsen, Tom Lenk, and Jason George.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually on Tuesdays.
Update: The show has been renewed for a second season.
Final season averages: 0.6 rating in »
The ‘Witches’ ended their first season with two — possibly three — big deaths, and an even bigger arrival.
Freya’s (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) wedding day finally arrived on the Dec. 15 season finale of Lifetime’s Witches of East End, and the ceremony went off without a hitch! No, seriously, no one got hitched. Of course, Freya and Dash’s (Eric Winter) aborted nuptials were hardly the most surprising twist of the hour.
During one of Penelope’s (Virginia Madsen) classic kidnap-and-torture sessions, she revealed her true identity to Joanna (Julia Ormond), as well as the truth about Dash and Killian (Daniel di Tomasso). It turns out they had powers, but Penelope — excuse me, Athena – borrowed them when they were babies.
Freya also received a heartbreaking little surprise about Killian, when Victor (Joel Gretsch) told her that she had loved him once before. Possibly several times, actually. He believes Killian, just like Freya, »

On the penultimate episode, Joanna (Julia Ormond) destroyed the key to Asgard, the world from which she and her family of witches came. But when a mysterious — and very curious — man named Mike (Enver Gjokaj) showed up to Ingrid's (Rachel Boston) library, he revealed that not only is there a second key located in Fair Haven, but that the key is Ingrid herself. Will Mike use Ingrid to get to the other side? Will Penelope (Virginia Madsen) destroy her son's wedding to Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) so that she can return home to Asgard and reunite with Archibald (Matthew Del Negro)? And will the Beauchamp girls work with their newly discovered father to save everyone? We checked in with both Boston and executive producer Maggie Friedman who answered our burning questions heading into finale.

Watch our exclusive preview of the ‘Witches’ finale, then drop a comment with your theories: What’s to become of the Beauchamps?
Freya’s (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) wedding day finally arrives on the season finale of Lifetime’s Witches of East End, and “stressful” doesn’t even begin to describe the vibe at Chez Beauchamp. In this first-look clip from the Dec. 15 episode, obtained exclusively by HollywoodLife.com, Joanna (Julia Ormond) and Wendy (Mädchen Amick) devise a supernatural plan to make it through Freya’s big day in one piece. Good luck, ladies!
But seriously, can you blame them for freaking out? Not only is an unknown force plotting Freya’s death — the audience, of course, knows that it’s Penelope (Virginia Madsen) — but “Mike” is also dead-set on using Ingrid (Rachel Boston) to unlock the door to Asgard!
(Side note: I put “Mike” in quotes because I’m pretty sure »

The first season’s penultimate episode found both Beauchamp sisters at a crossroad, and they’ve got some big decisions to make!
Desperate to restore her niece’s powers, Wendy (Mädchen Amick) turned to an unlikely ally on Witches of East End‘s Dec. 1 episode: the girls’ father, Victor! And even though the Beauchamps’ family reunion got off to a fairly rocky start — Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) almost died, and Ingrid (Rachel Boston) gave dear ol’ dad the brush-off – it was a freakin’ picnic compared to what Penelope (Virginia Madsen) has in store for everyone.
Basically, Freya’s future monster-in-law is going to turn her wedding into a funeral, killing her son’s bride and returning “home” to be with Archibald. I assume Penelope was referring to Asgard when she said she was going “home,” but I guess there’s always a chance she has another destination in mind. This is Witches of East End, »

Plus, Freya’s worst fear is realized and Athena puts a plan into action.
The truth about Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and Killian’s (Daniel di Tomasso) engagement-party kiss finally came out on Witches of East End‘s Nov. 17 episode, and honestly, I didn’t even feel badly when Dash (Eric Winter) ditched Freya for London. Weird magical destiny or not, she did him wrong and deserves to face the consequences. Besides, if Freya went to London with Dash, they’d have to change the title to Witches of West End – and that’d just be crazy.
A late-night tarot card session with Joanna (Julia Ormond) further complicated Freya’s love life, revealing that she’s fated to fall for both brothers — but while one is her soulmate, the other is her “destroyer!” Naturally, the bad brother has the ability to make himself appear good, so it could be either of them. »

With Cate Blanchett back in the derby, 'tis time for us to recall her victory as Best Supporting Actress of 2004 ("The Aviator") when she beat Laura Linney ("Kinsey"), Sophie Okonedo ("Hotel Rwanda"), Natalie Portman ("Closer") and Virginia Madsen ("Sideways"). She was the fave to win. Portman had beaten her at the Golden Globes, but Blanchett rallied at the SAG Awards. At the Oscars, it was deliciously ironic that Blachett won for portraying the biggest winner of Academy Awards: Katharine Hepburn. -Break- »
Kids. Such as Sex, Lies, and Videotape or Reservoir Dogs before it, and such as Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine and Fruitvale Station after it, Larry Clark & Harmony Korine’s seminal film is forever connected in “spirit” to the lieu where it received its secret midnight premiere screening in 1995. The Sundance Film Festival might be known as the birthplace of U.S indie filmmaking innovation, avant-gardism, a larger definition of the low budgeted film response to Hollywood in not only narrative but in the non-fiction form, but it is a festival made strong by its renewal and familiarity. That close acquaintanceness exists in Kids‘ starlets Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny filmography/career path trajectory and connection to Park City (both have several indie films slated for ’14 – of which I’ve included in our predictions list) and it is that “familiarity” that is visibly noticeable in how I map out my annual predictions list. »

Jgl's eponymous character isn't the first to develop an insatiable fondness for the fairer sex, so with that in mind, Digital Spy takes a look at some of cinema's most memorable lotharios below...
If any character epitomised the word 'lothario', 007 would probably be it. Part of what has made Bond's character so iconic is his excessive womanising, whether it be frolicking with Honey Ryder in Jamaica or rolling in the hay with Pussy Galore. In earlier films, his rather unorthodox approach and ease with which he seduced women (sometimes as many as three per film) made him seem like a Casanova figure. However, in recent years, Bond's relationships have proven more complex and ambiguous (as with Casino Royale's Vesper »
The past and present collided — as they often do — putting Freya’s marriage, and life, in jeopardy.
I’ve always figured there was more to Freya’s (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) future monster-in-law Penelope (Virginia Madsen) than meets the eye, and on the Nov. 10 episode of Witches of East End, we finally learned what that is — even if the Beauchamps have absolutely no idea. It turns out Dash (Eric Winter) and Killian’s (Daniel di Tomasso) mom has close ties to Freya’s family, and if her stink-eye at the end of the hour was any indication, she’s got something nasty cooking. Not that’s Penelope’s not always in a constant state of stink-eye, because she definitely is.
But to really understand where Penelope may or may not be coming from, we’ll need to take a trip down memory lane, which Ingrid (Rachel Boston) did this week with a »

Plus, Joanna comes face to face with her shifter enemy — well, one of them anyway!
Fate finally reared its ugly head on Witches of East End‘s Oct. 27 episode, claiming the victim of Ingrid’s (Rachel Boston) resurrection spell. But perhaps the most tragic part of all: It was exactly who we all thought it was going to be, even if the episode did pull a bit of a bait and switch at the last minute.
Worried that Adam (Jason George) would pay the penalty for her witchy crimes, Ingrid ended their dinner date before they even started eating. After all, if she didn’t let herself love him, he couldn’t be the loved one she would lose. This plan seemed to work, until a post-date stroll with Barb (Kellee Stewart) ended with Ingrid having to rush her to hospital. At this point, Ingrid was sure that either Barb »

‘Your death will be a tale to frighten children, to make lovers cling closer in their rapture. Come with me, and be immortal.’
Director: Bernard Rose
Plot: Helen Lyle (Madsen) is a sceptical grad student investigating the myth of the Candyman (Todd) for her thesis, but her fearless actions lead to her summoning the tortured soul back into reality.
This nostalgia-inducing cult classic could easily have found its way into Thn’s Guilty Pleasure feature of last month, but we felt it best to save it for its true home, amongst Thn’s selection of gruesomely gory and titillatingly taut horror greats. Based on the short story ‘The Forbidden’, by Clive Barker, Candyman is one of the few stories you’ll find that, although derives from an urban legend, could perhaps be more accurately defined as ‘ghetto mythology’ due to its humble setting. »

“If this were a movie, right now would be the moment where the girl who thought she was ordinary finds out she’s actually magic, and the power was in her all along.”
That little slice of meta dialogue — directed at wide-eyed librarian Ingrid Beauchamp (a ridiculously charming Rachel Boston) — is the guiding premise for the pilot of Lifetime’s instantly spellbinding Witches of East End.
The show focuses on Ingrid’s mother Joanna (Julia Ormond), a witch with an immortality curse that’s made worse by her fertility: “I’ve given birth to [Ingrid and her sister Freya] and watched them die a dozen times, »

I get it, Lifetime. Clearly, the network directive is to go less chick-centric. You cancel "Army Wives" (and try to bump off "Drop Dead Diva" until fan protest forced you to reconsider) and hop on the supernatural train everyone else is riding. That's fine. It's a shame, though, that you decided to rip a page from The CW in adapting "Witches of East End." So far, this show mostly serves to make me marvel at the fact Madchen Amick still looks this amazingly good naked at age 42, and sigh deeply that Julia Ormond and Virginia Madsen can't get better gigs. »
