The Obamas Are on the Move to Mark History

10 April 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama made their way to Houston, TX, on Thursday to mark 50 years since the passage of the Civil Rights Act. Taking the stage at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and Museum, Obama spoke about how the 1960s efforts toward equality helped open doors and pave the way for opportunities, saying, "They swung open for you, and they swung open for me. That's why I'm standing here today." He also acknowledged that there's still progress to be made, hitting on a more personal note: "Our society is still racked with division and poverty. Yes, race still colors our political debates, and there have been government programs that have fallen short. I reject such cynicism, because I have lived out the promise of Lbj's efforts, because Michelle has lived out the legacy of those efforts, because my daughters have lived out the legacy of those efforts. »

Anne Sweeney Honored at Alliance for Children’s Rights Fundraiser

8 April 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Alliance for Children’s Rights annual fundraiser benefit kicked off with a bang Monday night as students from the Virgil Middle School’s drumline welcomed guests with a performance.

After the presentations began, there wasn’t a dry eye in the packed Beverly Hilton ballroom, as Alliance clients — both children and adults — took to the stage to tell their stories about how the Alliance changed their lives. Nathen Garson, a 12-year-old with whom the Alliance has worked to formalize an adoption, told how he and his dad, actor Willie Garson (“Sex and the City,” “White Collar”), celebrated his adoption. Instead of going out for hot dogs like he wanted, Nathen’s father took him to a “fancy” restaurant where they could eat steaks and order Shirley Temples with five cherries.

As a “thank you” Nathen presented his dad with the Francis M. Wheat Community Service award. The elder Garson »

9 Reasons Patrick Schwarzenegger Is a Modern-Day Kennedy

31 March 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

From the looks of it, Patrick Schwarzenegger had a blowout vacation in Miami Beach, Fl, over the weekend. He chilled by the pool, took a stroll on the boardwalk, and totally hit it off with a few women. But there's a lot more to Patrick than his social skills, handsome face, and chiseled body. Patrick, 20, took the vacation during a break from his studies at the University of Southern California, which is located close to his family home in La. The son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, President John F. Kennedy's niece, it's no wonder he has an intriguing personality. Although there's no denying he takes after his father in many ways - just look at that bone structure! - it seems he also inherited the attention-grabbing charisma and other standout traits that run deep in Maria's family. Keep reading to see all the ways he reminds us of a modern-day Kennedy! »

'Paycheck to Paycheck': Maria Shriver's 'living, breathing document' of poverty

17 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Maria Shriver may not be a television news regular these days, but her interest in the world around her hasn't lessened.

The NBC News special correspondent and former California first lady likely would contend it only has increased, given her role in such initiatives as "The Alzheimer's Project" -- the award-winning HBO documentary largely inspired by the experience of Shriver's late father, politician and activist Sargent Shriver, with the disease -- and her recently issued Shriver Report subtitled "A Woman's Nation Pushes Back From the Brink," about women and children living on the poverty line in modern America.

Related to the report is "Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert," a documentary Shriver executive produced for HBO, where it debuts Monday, March 17 (and then will be offered free for the next week at HBO.com, ShriverReport.org and YouTube.com). It follows a single mother of three in Chattanooga, »

Jennifer Aniston is up against a lot when it comes to what the public thinks about her personal life - and that's an opinion from an expert. "I think it's harder on her than it is on me," Gloria Steinem told People at Thursday night's premiere of the new HBO documentary executive-produced by Maria Shriver, Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert. Explained Steinem, "I can say whatever it is that I feel. But because of her art and because she is known for playing characters, by definition not herself - I think it's more difficult for »

A Dream Deferred: Short Doc ‘Paycheck to Paycheck’ Comes to New York City, With a Big Surprise

14 March 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s a scene about halfway through Shari Cookson and Nick Doob’s documentary short Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert that the subject in question receives news that she has passed a long-feared college entrance exam and can now enroll in a local institution. For Gilbert, a single mother of three who works long stretches at a care facility for the elderly as a certified nurse’s assistant (hard work, and all for the paltry sum of $9.49 an hour), the possibility that she can now attend and complete college is both a tremendous blessing and the result of lots of hard work. Minutes later, however, Gilbert is informed that her financial aid – an obvious necessity in her situation – has been denied, and her joy turns to confusion, pain, and fear. Gilbert, who continually approaches the numerous setbacks of her life on the brink of poverty with a matter-of-fact spirit that is nothing »

TV Review: ‘Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert’

14 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Television news frequently uses personal stories to shed light on broader issues, an approach that works to varying degrees. While the message in “Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert,” comes through loud and clear, it’s rendered slightly numb via this collaboration of HBO and Maria Shriver, which focuses on the struggles of one single mother to illuminate those of the 42 million women living near or below the poverty line, along with the 28 million children who depend on them, according to the show. Spare and troubling though the documentary may be, its anecdotal strategy produces the feeling in this instance that less is, indeed, less.

Filmed over the course of a year, Gilbert’s story is designed to put a face on the issue of poverty — and to provide a not-so-thinly-veiled rejoinder to the conservative media’s message that most poor families headed by single moms are welfare slackers. »

Maria & Arnold! Liz & Eddie! 10 Scandalous Celeb Divorces

View Photo Gallery

It’s the morning after Valentine’s Day — time to come down off of our snuggly love high and face the harsh realities of real-life relationships. Sometimes they end. But when it happens to high-profile celebrities, more often than not, there’s a hint of over-the-top drama that makes the whole thing incredibly entertaining (yes, we have no souls). Whether they’re royals, politicos, or Hollywood stars, celebs can’t do anything halfway — especially when they know the world’s watching. So even the sad, tragic dissolution of a relationship can be a stage for indulgent excess.

Take Britney Spears and Kevin Federline. Their union was tacky enough — trucker hats on the beach, Cheetos at the gas station — but when you factor in rumors of drug use, infidelities, and BritBrit locking herself in bathrooms for days on end — the whole thing because downright gothic. Or what about »

Writing under her full name, Beyonce Knowles-Carter, the singer said that today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes, claiming that unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change.

She then wrote a call to action suggesting that men join their wives, daughters, mothers and sisters. »
