Twin Peaks Episode 6 Recap: 'Diane, That's a Damn Good Wig'

12 June 2017 4:43 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Carol Lynley (The Poseidon Adventure) was rumored to have the part back in 1991. And theories swirled over the years suggesting Agent Cooper’s trusty Gal Friday might just be a figment of his imagination. But in Sunday’s Twin Peaks, the one and only “Diane” was finally revealed to be none other than Laura Dern. (Nifty that she played his Girl Friday back in Blue Velvet too, huh?) A satisfying moment 27 years in the making (even if most of us guessed and hoped it was coming). Now, Albert (who found her in Max Von’s Bar in Philadelphia – did that »

Beaches: 19 Changes Made in Lifetime’s Small Screen Remake of the 1988 Classic Tearjerker

21 January 2017 7:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Lifetime’s remake of the classic 1988 tearjerker Beaches aired Saturday night — with Broadway star Idina Menzel and Big Momma’s House Nia Long stepping into the iconic roles of entertainer C.C. Bloom and her aristocratic Bff Hillary Whitney — made famous on screen by Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey.

The made-for-tv movie did an excellent job of capturing the ups and downs of a 30-year friendship, staying true to most of plot points in the Garry Marshall feature and Iris Rainer Dart’s original book. (Spoiler alert: that death is still there, and it’s just as devastating).

New vs. Classic 'Beaches': 13 Changes Lifetime Made to the Beloved Tearjerker

20 January 2017 7:50 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! If you've never watched Beaches, read at your own risk.

We still haven't stopped crying 30 years after Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey starred in late director Garry Marshall's crushing cult classic Beaches.

Now, with Frozen star Idina Menzel playing Midler's iconic "C.C." Bloom role and Nia Long as her ailing best friend, Hillary Whitney, the gut punch of a weepie has returned thanks to a Lifetime remake (hey, ladies and gay men, it's not bad!) to offer new generations of sad-movie lovers years of sloppy sobfests.

Though the 1988 dramedy's themes of friendship, loyalty and loss remain intact, check out some of the major changes made to this contemporary take on the ultimate chick flick.

1. No Letter Writing Because 2017 and Smartphones

Good ol' letter writing was a delightful pastime -- and one of Beaches' now-nostalgic charms -- until email, iPhones and smiling poop emojis forever changed communication. Though we never »
