Jamie-Lynn Sigler played a mobster’s daughter on the hit HBO series “The Sopranos,” but her ex-husband, Abraxas Discala, allegedly ran a real-life Sopranos-style scam, before the feds busted him. Nothing was sophisticated about the alleged scam. It was a simple mob-style pump-and-dump scheme, similar to one run by Jordon Belfort, who was featured in the Martin Scorsese film “Wolf of Wall Street.” ...Read More »
Major Crimes star Jonathan Del Arco spends a lot of time in the morgue to help the fictional detectives of the TNT drama series solve their problematic cases. But the actor is one of several Hollywood celebs lending their time and talents in an effort to solve an even bigger problem.
Del Arco is an honorary board member of the non-profit organization Welcome.us, which celebrates the United States rich immigrant heritage as a way to raise awareness about the ongoing political debate surrounding immigration reform. As part of June's Immigration Heritage Month, Del Arco and other actors, including Glee's Naya Rivera, The Vampire Diaries' Paul Wesley and Jamie-Lynn Sigler have created a series of PSAs to spread Welcome.us' message.
"We're addressing immigration in a holistic way," Del Arco tells TVGuide.com. "We're taking it out of the political circle and really addressing the social aspect of it. »

The big casinos in Las Vegas, Monte Carlo and Atlantic City have always attracted celebrities to play at their tables. Like the rest of us, celebs work hard to earn their living, so it makes sense that they want to let their hair down and do something fun like playing casino games in their free time. The only difference between typical casual casino goers and celebrities is that celebs usually have more disposable cash, so they tend to ‘go large’ when they’re gaming.

This may very well be the cutest baby boy nursery we've ever laid eyes on! Jamie Lynn Sigler recently opened up her Los Angeles home for Domaine to show off her son Beau's posh room, and we're seriously smitten with every adorable detail. The actress created an inviting space filled with "clean lines and nothing over the top", working with a neutral white palette to start. She selected timeless classic pieces and added fun elements like patterned throw pillows, cozy throws and a bright yellow braided pouf chair for a touch of whimsy. Our favorite personal touch in the room? A vintage leather elephant from Hollywood at Home. And given that Beau's »
If you’ve never heard of the play that inspired the film, no one could blame you for having a little bit of apprehension heading into a film called Jewtopia. The film’s name alone makes you wonder if it’s going to be an incredibly offensive onslaught of anti-semitic one-liners or a comedy created by and knowingly winking at anyone who’s ever lived or observed Jewish life in America. It’s a comedy staple that’s become increasingly common over the years, with the guilt-tripping mothers, a mandatory career path of lawyer, doctor, or media mogul, and many other overly familiar stereotypes. Jewtopia plays them all up, but in a way that’s simultaneously repetitive and fresh. It doesn’t hurt that it’s one of the best performances for Joel David Moore or Ivan Sergei, or that they’re backed by Tom Arnold, Jon Lovitz, Jennifer Love Hewitt, »

Cyrus, who is currently busy touring, was performing at the Staples Center on Saturday, Feb. 22, when she kissed Perry in front of a huge audience. At the concert, a kiss camera appears during the performance of Cyrus’ love song “Adore You,” and in video of the entire performance she even encourages couples who appear on the screen to kiss, taking a break from singing to comment on what appears on the kiss cam. Towards the end of the song, Cyrus approached the edge of the stage where Perry was watching from the front row and beckoned her forward, puckering up her lips. Perry was game and gave Cyrus a nice peck on the lips.
