Amal Clooney Goes for the Gold in Glittering Vintage Dress
If we’ve learned anything about Amal Clooney‘s style over the years, it’s that she never misses a chance to rock a killer vintage look, whether it’s a one-shoulder, ruffled minidress or a chic fur-topped baseball cap. And Thursday night was no exception, as the lawyer (and wife of George Clooney) attended an event co-hosted by one of her longtime favorite vintage haunts, London’s William Vintage, in a glittering gold mesh vintage Versace look.

In her flapper-esque shift dress in the brand’s signature fabric, Clooney was right on trend – after all, five original supermodels wore

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce: Season Four Ratings

The good news is, we have known since 2016 that the Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce TV show shouldn't be cancelled too soon, because Bravo renewed the show through season five. The bad new is that seasons four and five will be shorter, and there will be no season six. In more bad news, the ratings have dropped off quite a bit over the last couple of years. Will moving it to the summer help boost its Nielsen numbers, or will Bravo end up ending with the fifth season, after all? Stay tuned. Inspired by the book series by Vicki Iovine, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce stars Lisa Edelstein, Alanna Ubach, Beau Garrett, Necar Zadegan, Retta, and Paul Adelstein. Self-help guru Abby McCarthy (Edelstein) shocked the world when she separated from her husband, and her career took a dive, so she went in a new direction. In

The television industry, from Emmy presenters and nominees, to other TV industry members, helped raise funds to support their industry colleagues and friends who benefit from Mptf’s charitable programs and services such as financial assistance, crisis counseling, care giving support and of course the legendary retirement facility in Woodland Hills that is “home” to television and film veterans alike.

“The health and social service needs of our community continue to grow, especially during these last few years. The cost of delivering much-needed care can be overwhelming to Mptf’s resources, which makes events like the Evening Before more important now than ever,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg,

Lisa Edelstein Opens Up About Being a Stepmom: ‘Children Will Let You Know What They Need From You’

Lisa Edelstein Opens Up About Being a Stepmom: ‘Children Will Let You Know What They Need From You’
Lisa Edelstein is all about family life.

The Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce star got candid about her personal life and what it's like to help raise her husband’s children in a recent essay for Redbook magazine.

Watch: George Clooney and Hugh Laurie Reprise 'E.R.' and 'House' Roles to Rap Jimmy Kimmel Back to Life

“Is it so impossible to imagine loving a child you didn't give birth to?” the 51-year-old actress says. “Sure, raising human beings is hard even when you've had the opportunity for oxytocin to kick in for some chemical bonding. But as any adoptive parent will tell you, love comes anyway, even if you became a parent without having sex to get there or you became a parent by default. Like me.”

Edelstein married artist Robert Russell in May 2014, and became stepmom to his two sons. She writes that when she and Russell first became involved things weren’t so easy

Lisa Edelstein Writes Moving Essay on How Her Role as a Stepmom Has Evolved: ‘I Was Dating a Family’
When Lisa Edelstein first started thinking about why stepparents have a negative connotation associated with them, she did what any post-millennium individual would do: turned to the internet.

“I tried to Google Why do stepmothers have such a bad rap? but by the time I typed ‘Why do stepm-,’ Google excitedly anticipated my needs, showing me Why do stepmothers hate stepchildren? Why? Why?” the Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce star writes in a new essay for Redbook.

“Is it so impossible to imagine loving a child you didn’t give birth to?” writes Edelstein, 50, who is stepmom to husband Robert Russell‘s two sons.

Talk About Awkward! Abby Meets Her New Lover's Wife in This Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Sneak Peek
Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce is about to come face-to-face with the past. Sure, there's no crying in baseball when it comes to the players, but what about its blindsided spectators?

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 3 Episode 5 Review: Rule #99: Cook Naked

  • TVfanatic
Secrets can be sexy. They can also be damaging.

The level of secrets ran the gamut on Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 3 Episode 5, and the only person not keeping them was Barbara, who was on the hunt for some new merchandise to enhance her life.

She might have found quite the bargain by listening to the insistent Phoebe.

Phoebe is still sabotaging her life, and I can't deal with it.

That's been her character from the word go, and to sit through another boring plot where we're forced to watch her face the same things about herself again is a disservice to Beau Garrett, Phoebe and me.

But Phoebe was her usual, pushy self when it came to introducing Barbara to a kitchen designer Barbara knew would be over her budget.

Barbara's winning personality scored points that cut costs, though.

I enjoyed getting a more prolonged peek into Barbara's personal life.

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 3 Episode 4 Review: What Happens in Bakersfield Stays in Bakersfield

  • TVfanatic
A new beginning, a resolution, an escape or falling back into the same old tricks. 

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 3 Episode 4 had a little bit of everything, most of which was refreshing and exciting. Unfortunately, with the good comes the not-so-good, and we weren't spared that, either.

With Abby making new friends in Bakersfield and Jo, Delia and Phoebe playing fast and free in Palm Springs, there's a lot of ground to cover. Let's go!

Kudos to the team for that opening shot, because despite the title and the previews to the contrary, I got so caught up in the moment I really thought Abby had decided to drive to Palm Springs separately from the others and was on her way.

So what a fun surprise that Jo, Delia and Phoebe were without their "leader" for the weekend. 

Odd that I consider Abby their ringleader, but as their mutual connection,
