When models and celebrities collide, it can seem like the stars have aligned to create the perfect, genetically-gifted couple. But you can have too much of a good thing.
Thanks to "Sex and the City," we have a term for the men of Hollywood who seem to have an addiction to dating leggy beauties: modelizers. To give you a better idea, we've rounded up some classic examples of male celebs who have a thing for dating models. See our list of modelizers below and tell us if we're missing anyone!
Today's quintessential modelizer, Leo has dated everyone from Bar Refaeli to Gisele Bundchen to Erin Heatherton. He even romanced Naomi Campbell back in the '90s. Oh, and he's currently dating Victoria's Secret model Toni Garrn -- it's no wonder some people have started referring to modelizing as "Leonardo DiCaprio Syndrome."

When it comes to programming gameshows on television today, what is the most important element?
A) Live viewing
B) A novel format
C) Celeb talent
D) App integration
The answer to that isn’t a simple one, as many producers and network execs have come to realize in recent years.
With the primetime heyday of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” and “Deal or No Deal” now a syndicated memory on television lineups, broadcast and cable networks are facing new challenges when launching gameshows in today’s market, thanks to the proliferation of high-speed Internet hookups, social media platforms and DVR use.
Yet execs — including NBC’s alternative chief Paul Telegdy — see gameshows as an opportunity to tap into something more “retro” in order to capture ratings and the public’s attention.
“What’s working on broadcast today are big, live events: American football, baseball, the Grammys, the Academy Awards, »

You might think an actor's career is on the fritz when they agree to star in a film like "Titanic 2", a straight-to-video feature that this time has a tsunami hurling an iceberg in the ship's path.
On HuffPost Live, Burns said that the main reason she signed up for "Titanic 2" was to pay for earthquake insurance.
"I worked for two days and paid for my mortgage for a couple of months and earthquake insurance for my house," Burns said, laughing. "But people don't know that. They just look at that and think, 'Oh my God, your career is failing!"
Burns said "there are a few things that you can find online that now looking back I'm like, 'hmm, that was interesting'." But, »

Based on the UK show, The Chase is not set to premiere until August 6, but today Gsn said it has ordered another eight episodes for Season 2 to air later this year. Production begins next month. The network announced an eight-episode first-season order for the quiz competition in May during the upfronts. The one-hour show, in which three contestants battle against an all-knowing opponent named The Beast, is produced by ITV Studios America. Brooke Burns is host. “The high stakes of this ‘all or nothing,’ ‘David vs. Goliath’ battle of the brains result in riveting television,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Evp Programming and Development at Gsn. “While there is great gameplay in The Chase, it is also wildly entertaining to watch the always engaging Brooke Burns spar with trivia savant Mark Labbett aka The Beast”. Bob Boden, Martin Scott and Michael Kelpie are executive producers. »

In a rare move for broadcast television, Gsn has renewed gameshow “The Chase” for a second season before the show has even launched.
Series, hosted by Brooke Burns, is an hourlong quiz show from ITV Studios America and is based on a U.K. skein of the same name. Season one will debut on August 6.
Gsn has ordered eight episodes for “The Chase’s” second run, and will roll them out later this year.
Renewals before a program has launched is not often seen. While Starz offered “Boss” a second season before its first premiered, this renewal strategy has recently only been seen in the digital space, as Netflix offered a second run to “Orange is the New Black” before its first season roll out later this month.

It may be the ultimate "Lifetime movie," generated by two actresses who certainly know the playing field.
Infidelity, seduction and vengeance are hugely familiar ingredients of the cable channel's films, and they all factor into "A Sister's Revenge," premiering Saturday (April 27). Former "Baywatch" co-star Brooke Burns plays said sister, a smart schemer mourning her late sibling, who had an eventually unhappy romance with a novice restaurateur (Tim Rozon).
Determined to even the score, she targets the man, insinuating her way into the life of his new-mom wife (Ashley Jones, also an executive producer of the picture) as one element of her evil plan. A secret recording of an intimate encounter and an unexpectedly lethal pitcher of drinks also let you know you are, indeed, watching a "Lifetime movie." And neither of its female stars tries to deny it.
"In every role, if you can find a strong justification for your character, »
A staple of cable movies in recent years -- encompassing her role as the sinister sibling in Lifetime's "A Sister's Revenge," which debuts Saturday, April 27 -- the "Baywatch" veteran confirms she was approached about competing in ABC's Tuesday diving contest, which features fellow "Baywatch" alum Nicole Eggert, as well as on Fox's January special "Stars in Danger: The High Dive."
Burns' decision not to take part in either show wasn't overly surprising, since a 2005 diving accident left her with a broken neck. She has recovered, with significant help from a surgically installed titanium plate and rod, but other residual effects remain with her.
"Breaking my neck was probably the most devastating thing that I've ever been through in my life," Burns tells Zap2it. "It threatened not only my life, but my »
There are many emotions that can be immediately elicited by the phrase “A Hallmark Channel Original Movie.” I’d reckon that most of them are along the lines of “dread” and “foreboding” and “a desire to change the channel.” Yet the Hallmark Channel keeps on cranking out more of these less-than-lustrous gems to clutter the airwaves and the discount DVD bins at your local supermarket. Their audience exists and clearly has an appetite for what they do, though why, I cannot begin to fathom.
From the title, Undercover Bridesmaid sounds like it could be a Disney movie starring Hilary Duff circa 2001; yet this film aired in 2012 and stars an adult woman, Brooke Burns, in the title role. Burns plays Tanya, a bitter and jilted bride who despite a successful career in private security can’t seem to stop throwing darts at images of the man who left her at the altar. »
