Broad City, Season 2, Episode 8, “Kirk Steele”
Directed by Lucia Aniello
Airs Wednesdays at 10:30pm on Comedy Central
Sometimes Broad City doesn’t try to do anything more than be the funniest show on television, and it is in these episodes that it becomes that and more. This week, wearing her dazzling Froot Loop pants, Ilana is responsible for a child, Abbi tries to sell her artist’s rendering of Whoopi Goldberg’s favourite food (spaghetti), and Trey is a former pornstar. As wonderful guest star Amy Ryan says, “How very funky.”
While the series remains very much fixated on Abbi and Ilana and their intense friendship, and while the viewers have been discovering many new sides to the duo this season, the show has also been fleshing out some secondary characters. It’s not always successful—Bevers is still not working—but Lincoln »

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell ETonline all about the moment on their series that they most cherished getting to see make it from script to screen.
“You have to put yourself in the mindset of the late-‘90s, where this sort of thing was not done on television,” Sex and the City creator Darren Star tells ETonline of the HBO comedy that first premiered in 1998 and would eventually run six seasons, spawn two films, and make Carrie Bradshaw a household name.
The show’s frankness and humor about sex was both iconic and revolutionary. Yet, in the first season, hardly anyone watched the adventures of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Samantha (Kim Cattrall).

"That's Racist" is a new web series from AOL and Mike Epps, whose goal is to get to the root of the many stereotypes that continue to ail and divide us.

Produced by Andrew Fried for Boardwalk Pictures, the series is part of a AOL's 2014 slate of original programming (yes, even AOL is in the original content space).

Las Vegas…the hotbed haven where dreams of high rollers are realized among the glitzy bright lights, the element of chance and luck and the adrenaline for instant fortune. But there is a deception to Sin City that is overlooked–the isolation of a gambler’s anxiety and desperation, the false sense of confidence at the craps table and the swinging doors of the psychological lows more so than the rewarding highs.
Still, Las Vegas has its excitable aura–both innocence and guilt–where one arrives to skillfully manufacture their financial profile or go bust. In some instances, the hedonistic expectations are defined in other fun, precarious ways. It is no wonder that Hollywood has come calling to put its distinctive spin on the capital city of adult entertainment. For decades, the movies have made Las Vegas its backdrop for wonderment, degradation, intrigue, comical curiosity and soul-searching revelations.

Looking back over the awards season that ended with the Oscars Feb. 22, the red carpet was a little less luminous owing to the loss of two of fashion’s brightest lights: designers Oscar de la Renta and L’Wren Scott.
Between them, de la Renta, 82, who lost his almost-decade-long battle with cancer in October, and Scott, 49, who passed tragically in March, have dressed the evening’s biggest stars, including Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Garner.
“You always knew there was going to be a great Oscar dress on the red carpet,” says Elizabeth Saltzman, stylist to Gwyneth Paltrow. “He was the epitome of class and style and taste. I adored him. It’s for his clothing I would save my money, knowing how timeless each piece is, how beautifully made, how worthy, and chic, and not trendy.”

Meanwhile, the 47-year-old actress previously admitted that children can ''distract'' from a relationship. She said: ''Kids can really distract you from your relationship.
