Erika Girardi Admits She "Overreacted" to Eileen Davidson During Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Hong Kong Blowout

Erika Girardi Admits She
High drama in Hong Kong for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Everything came back to what Dorit Kemsley dubbed "pantygate"¬—you know, that time Erika Girardi showed up to a party without any underwear and Dorit's husband couldn't stop looking. Erika and Dorit squared off on the junk boat and then again at a dinner disaster, second only to the infamous dinner party from hell (never forget Allison DuBois), and somehow Erika unleashed it all at Eileen Davidson. Eileen tried to make a "hyperbolic statement" to help Erika try and listen to Dorit's apology, but Erika wasn't having it. Eileen said it's not like Dorit killed Erika's kid, which struck a cord with Erika...

Mindy Newell: A Psychic and a Bunch Of Spies

  • Comicmix
Allison Dubois (Patricia Arquette): It’s 9:00. How am I supposed to know you’re Ok? How do I know you’re not lying dead somewhere? • Joe Dubois (Jake Weber): If something had happened, somebody would’ve called. If I were dead, who are we kidding, you’d be the first to know. • Medium, NBC and CBS, 2005 – 2011

She sees dead people.

From January 2005 until January 2011, Patricia Arquette played the role of Allison DuBois, wife, mother, would-be lawyer, and Medium to the Phoenix District Attorney Office. Brought to television life by Glenn Gordon Caron, who had also developed and produced Moonlighting, the show that kicked off Bruce Willis’ career – the show was based on the story and exploits of real-life psychic investigator Allison DuBois, a Phoenix native who worked as an intern for the city’s D.A. and who wrote a book called Don’t Kiss Them Good-bye.

You Have to See Connie Britton as Faye Resnick...at Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Dinner Party From Hell!

You Have to See Connie Britton as Faye Resnick...at Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Dinner Party From Hell!
When Ryan Murphy announced Connie Britton would be playing Faye Resnick in American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson the Internet lost its collective s--t. Of course, everybody remembers Resnick's role in the Simpson murder case, but she has recently become known for her appearances on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, notably when she took on Allison DuBois at Camille Grammer's dinner party from hell. While we have yet to see any footage from American Crime Story, Andy Cohen did gift viewers with a little snippet of Britton's performance as the "morally corrupt" Resnick when the Nashville star appeared on Watch What Happens Live Thursday. Cohen took on the role of psychic DuBois,...

Real Housewives of New York City Has Insanely Accurate and Emotional Psychic Reading and Everybody's Crying

Real Housewives of New York City Has Insanely Accurate and Emotional Psychic Reading and Everybody's Crying
The ladies of the Real Housewives franchise have had their fair share of run-ins with mediums, whether they were at dinner parties from hell (hi, Allison DuBois) or brought in to speak to Vicki Gunvalson's recently deceased mother (he was a medium, not a median), but none have been as eerily accurate as the medium on The Real Housewives of New York City. Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Dorinda Medley traveled to the faraway land of Queens, New York to consult Sema, a Turkish coffee cup reader and when we say she was spot on we mean it. She was so on point that we can't help but wonder if the producers perhaps gave her any kind of info before the ladies got there. Check out the clip below. "Ok,...

Long (well, not really so long ago for some of these actors) before these actors were waking up to phone calls and texts from agents, managers, publicists, friends, etc., all congratulating them on their Oscar nomination, they were toiling away on TV. Yes, television! But the divide between movies and TV is shrinking and some of these actors, like Wild's Laura Dern in the beloved HBO series Enlightened, did some of their best work on the small screen.

From Under the Radar to Potential Oscar Contention

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The conversation surrounding potential supporting actress nominees includes some names familiar to the Oscar race, such as Meryl Streep (Into the Woods), and some that could be nominated for the first time, such as Emma Stone (Birdman). The list of potential contenders also includes Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Rene Russo (Nightcrawler), two ladies that have flown under the radar since the 90s but could mark their return with first-time Oscar nominations.

Arquette’s role as the mother in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, a film that chronicles 12 years in a young boy’s (played by Ellar Coltrane) life as he grows up in a divorced household, has been generating Oscar buzz since the film premiered at Sundance. Arquette was involved in a few projects during those 12 years of filming, which was possible due to the sporadic nature of shooting, only three to four days a year.

Patricia Arquette To Star In New Cyber Crime ‘CSI’ Spinoff

The CSI franchise is spawning yet another series, this time set in the FBI’s Cyber Crime Division in Quantico, Virginia. While there’s no official name yet for the new CBS show, there is a lead, as Medium and True Romance star Patricia Arquette is set to be front and center of a team tasked with solving crimes that “start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world.” Arquette’s Medium, a supernatural procedural drama, aired on NBC from January 2005 to January 2011 and coincidentally ran directly against CBS’s CSI: Miami and, in later seasons, CSI: NY. Arquette won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her fictionalized portrayal of real-life medium Allison DuBois in its first season on air. Her newest role as Special Agent Avery Ryan will put her in the driver’s seat like her fellow CSI counterparts William Petersen, David Caruso

'Bravo's Top Ten Dinners From Hell': And the No. 1 dinner disaster is...

If you're a star on a Bravo show and you get invited to a group dinner, chances are you or someone you know will wind up storming out. On Wednesday (Feb. 12), the network counted down the ten most insane evenings to make the air on "Bravo's Top Ten Dinners From Hell."

And all your favorites were there: Tamra Barney's '80s Bunco party on "Real Housewives of Orange County," the night Camille Grammer invited medium (and all-around awful person) Allison Dubois to dinner on "Rhobh," the time Sheree Whitfield tugged on Kim Zolciak's wig on "Rhoa" and just about every dinner at which Golnesa "Gg" Gharachedaghi drank any alcohol on "Shahs of Sunset."

But, only one dinner could reign supreme as the No. 1 "Dinner From Hell." So, which took top honors? The table flip, of course. You remember the moment that catapulted "Real Housewives of New Jersey" and Teresa Giudice into legendary status.

Nucky In Love? Patricia Arquette Shakes Up Boardwalk Empire

When Nucky Thompson lets a woman enter his world of dirty politics and bootleg hooch, she usually ends up in his bed. Or dead. Or both.

He'll give it a shot with Sally Wheet, a no-baloney speakeasy owner from Tampa played by Patricia Arquette, who spent seven seasons — and won an Emmy — as crime-busting psychic Allison DuBois on Medium.

You'll Never Guess Which Show Lucille Ball Saved

You'll Never Guess Which Show Lucille Ball Saved
Though it's typically the faces in front of the camera that fans associate with a hit TV series, many of your favorite shows had some very famous people behind the scenes as well. From "Star Trek" to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," legendary Emmy, Grammy and even Oscar winners helped create the shows that have become integral parts of TV history.

The tradition of big names producing signature shows continues this season with Rebel Wilson's "Super Fun Night" on ABC. Wilson is producing her American TV debut along with comedian Jeff Ross and Conan O'Brien and his Conaco Productions, who was behind "Andy Barker, P.I." and the short-lived NBC drama "Outlaw," starring Jimmy Smits.

O'Brien also co-created "Super Fun Night" with Wilson and had only the highest praises for her at the Television Critics Association Summer 2013 press tour earlier this month, comparing Wilson's character Kimmie to Lucille Ball and Tina Fey's iconic characters.

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' recap: Desperately seeking attention! Faye Resnick attacks Brandi Glanville

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' recap: Desperately seeking attention! Faye Resnick attacks Brandi Glanville
Monday's (Dec. 17) episode of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" resumed moments after last week's explosive ending, with Adrienne and Paul walking out of Kyle and Maurcio's party.

Alliances shifted as a result of Brandi's revelation of Adrienne's shocking secret. Kyle attacks Kim for telling Adrienne at the soiree, but Camille sides with Kim. Mauricio is furious with Brandi, defending his men-in-heels buddy, while Taylor, while not actually supporting Brandi, tries to steal the spotlight and paint herself as a terrified victim of Paul's aggression.

Ironically, Taylor also resurrects Camille's tea-party revelation about her abusive husband, the late Russell Armstrong -- not really comparable, considering that Taylor made no secret of her domestic violence, before Camille voiced it while the Bravo cameras were rolling.

Another mystery: Who is Brandi's escort to this party? He's kind of creepy.

Lisa, spared the fracas by her husband Ken's hip-replacement surgery, is exasperated by her demanding patient.

Rebecca Shapiro: 'Rhobh' Recap: The War Rages On
Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you haven't seen Season 3, Episode 7 of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," titled "Oy, Faye!"

While Bravo shook up the third season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" with an epic, profanity-laced scream-fest last week, it seems as though the series returned to its previously sleepy ways. This is probably because Brandi's "bombshell" was still edited out of the entire show. Seriously, Bravo? You pull this with not one, but two episodes? I do not appreciate it.

Viewers returned to Brandi's war with Adrienne and Paul Maloof at Mauricio's windy rooftop party. We were reminded of Adrienne's whole Brandi "slept till 3:00 p.m. and left [her] kids alone" accusation, and witnessed a drawn out version of the Maloofs exiting the party.

After they left, the housewives avec Camille, but sans Lisa and Yolanda, were left to ride that drama wave for as long as possible.

Scoop: Svu Casts Patricia Arquette as a Hooker, TV Vet Anne Meara as Her Mom
A riddle: How can an upcoming Law & Order: Svu guest star be both a big name and also a Medium one?

Here’s how: Medium star Patricia Arquette will play a call girl on a November episode of the NBC procedural, TVLine has learned. Small-screen vet Anne Meara will play her mom.

In the episode – which also features guest star Jason Gedrick (Dexter) – an armed and dangerous man goes on a killing spree in New York City. Arquette’s character Jeannie is a prostitute with whom the murderer has a weekly appointment… and she’s nowhere to be found. The

Ruby Sparks (review)

The Manic Pixie Dream Girl has seen many odious incarnations. Oh, not the girls themselves: you simply cannot hate them, they’re so cute and charming and quirky and funny and all-around loveably huggable and just so perfect. *squee* But you can hate the trope, which reduces women to paragons of helpful supportive adorableness who exist only to guide men through their essential life’s journeys. And I do hate the trope, which denies women their full fucked-up humanity and a need for their own journeys toward betterment or wisdom. Basically, until there are an equal number of Manic Pixie Dream Guys, I will keep complaining about this. Fantasy lovers who teach you Important Stuff about life, the universe, and everything and make you a better person and then disappear into the ether are awesome (well, except maybe for the disappearing part). It’s the fact that The Movies can

Your next box set: Medium

This underrated supernatural police procedural stars the excellent Patricia Arquette as Allison Dubois, part psychic investigator, part suburban mum

Think of Patricia Arquette and you very likely think of her role as kickass callgirl Alabama in the 90s cult classic True Romance – directed, of course, by the mighty Tony Scott, who died last weekend. Since 2005, though, Arquette has been quietly starring in underrated supernatural police procedural Medium.

Arquette's character Allison DuBois is a psychic medium working for the district attorney in Phoenix, Arizona. She dreams about crimes, sometimes before they have happened, gets given clues by ghosts, can talk to dead people – and eventually persuades the authorities to use her abilities to their advantage. Which all sounds pretty preposterous, until you realise it is based on a real-life Allison DuBois, a "psychic profiler" who really did work in law enforcement and serves as consultant on the show.

Most Awkward "Real Housewives" Dinner Party ... Ever!

  • TooFab
"The Real Housewives" franchise is known for its wild dinner parties.Who can forget when New Jersey housewife Teresa Giudice flipped a table in Season 1, or when the Beverly Hills cast took on psychic Allison DuBois during the "dinner party from hell."But nothing could top the awkward encounter on "Real Housewives of New York City" Monday night. New housewife Aviva Drescher invited the rest of the girls to her Miami condo with the intention of setting up castmate Sonja Morgan with her "sex addict" dad George (her words, not ours).Watching George hit on the housewives makes Hugh Hefner look like a saint. Check out the randy retiree talking dirty -- in front of his own daughter -- below:Things got even More awkward when George "poked" Sonja at an art party. Granted, we think the sex-crazed senior was using his finger instead of another digit, but either way, we're creeped out.

'Real Housewives' friends Sarah Winchester and Allison DuBois: Who's crazier?

Anyone else having déjà vu after Tuesday's (April 10) episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County"? It surely made some fans at least a little nostalgic for "The Dinner Party from Hell" from Season 1 of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

New O.C. Housewife Heather Dubrow decides to get the girls and their guys together for a bowling and "champs" (er, champagne) party, and Gretchen Rossi invites a guest -- Sarah Winchester. Sarah's stint at the party makes her out to be a rabble-rouser fueled by alcohol, which sounds a lot like someone else "Housewives" fans know -- electronic-cigarette-smoking Allison DuBois, who stirred up major drama among "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" when she was invited to Camille Grammer's pizza and (really strong) cocktail party in Season 1.

Vicki Gunvalson and boyfriend Brooks Ayers arrive at Heather's party, and everything's going swimmingly. Vicki even exchanges hugs and

Camille Grammer didn't want to leave 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'

Camille Grammer confirmed that she is leaving "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and says it's the show's producers that are to blame -- sounds like her desire to keep her life out from under the microscope was part of the decision too.    

"I can't say too much at this moment, but we couldn't get it worked out," Grammer tells Us Weekly.

"I love these girls. I really do," she says of fellow "Real Housewives" Kim and Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong, Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof. "I've had so much fun with the franchise, but I guess the producers and I couldn't come to an agreement."  

She adds that she would have "definitely" been back for another season had they been able to reach an agreement. However, based on what she said to E! Online, it sounds like that may not have been such a certainty in her mind.

Kyle Richards: 'Housewives' Reunions Are 'Mental Torture'
With "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" reunion set to air Monday night on Bravo, Kyle Richards sat down for an interview with "Good Morning America" (weekdays, 7 a.m. Est on ABC) to talk about her sister Kim Richards' struggles with alcohol abuse, and just how stressful the reunions can be.

The segment started off with a preview clip from the show in which Kim admits that she's an alcoholic. Reflecting on her at times rocky relationship with her sister, Kyle told "Gma" that, "There was a lot of passive agressiveness going on between the two of us ... The limo fight ... there were things going on that the audience wasn't aware of. I had a lot of pain and built-up anger and frustration towards her and obviously she did towards me too. It was a vicious cycle," she explained.

Richards also discussed the psychological toll that the "Housewives" reunions take on the cast.
