6 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Gosselin says Donald Trump made the wrong decision keeping “Real Housewives” diva on the NBC series

Kate Gosselin kept her cool when she was given the boot on NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” Monday night, but now she’s not holding back.

“It should have been Kenya [Moore],” Gosselin told TheWrap Tuesday. “I was aware of the fact that statistically, the project manager is more than 50 percent of the time fired. On this occasion, there were tangible reasons.”

‘American Sniper': The Fantasy That Fuels Its Popularity

10 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the continuing dominance of “American Sniper” at the box office shows, sometimes it pays to be polarizing. All the attention the Clint Eastwood film has drawn from figures as varied as Michael Moore, Bill Maher and John McCain is free promotion at its finest.

But watching the big-screen adaptation of Navy Seal Chris Kyle’s autobiography in its second week in theaters is probably a fundamentally different experience now that perceptions of the narrative are filtered through controversy. A mental checklist of the various criticisms that have been leveled at the film can be applied: Does Eastwood glorify the Iraq War? Did he demonize Muslims? Is there any moral ambiguity? Is the cinematic Chris Kyle too different than the real one?

None of these criticisms resonated much with me by the time the credits rolled. But one I hadn’t yet heard did, and it might explain just why »

16 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If you think having date night with kids is hard, try scheduling one when you have 19 boys and girls to raise. It's a reality Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar face as they pass 30 happy years of marriage. But according to the matriarch of 19 Kids and Counting, busy couples can still make time to enjoy a bit of romance on the cheap side. "Sometimes we'll go for a drive and just park and talk or take a walk and talk. It's so nice when it's quiet and there are no interruptions," Michelle shared in a new blog posted on TLC's website. "We really enjoy that because we're not around a lot of people then, and we can catch up with each other." She continued, "Other »

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have two of the most challenging (yet enviable) jobs in Hollywood, serving as showrunners on ABC’s “Agent Carter” and “Resurrection,” two high-concept dramas with vocal fanbases and — following the breakout success of “Resurrection” and the blockbuster track record of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe — plenty of scrutiny.

If they’re feeling the pressure, you wouldn’t know it to talk with the accomplished pair, who sat down with Variety for a gregarious discussion about their professional partnership of 16 years, the experience of playing in the Marvel sandbox, and what’s ahead for “Agent Carter,” as Hayley Atwell’s titular heroine delves deeper into a web of conspiracies and secrets that may leave her feeling betrayed by those she trusts most, as the below preview from the Jan. 27 episode illustrates.

Louis C.K. Releases New Special; Read His Very Long, Very Thoughtful Email Explaining Where He Taped It

39 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Today Louis C.K. released a new, hourlong comedy special, which he is selling on his web site for $5. Unlike in years past, this year's special was not filmed in a sit-down theater but in a comedy club. The distinction is important, as Louis made clear in an 1,800-word email that tells the story of his long history with stand-up. "I've been on comedy club stages probably more than I've stood on any other kind of spot in my entire life," Louis writes; first in Boston, then New York, and then, finally, in Los Angeles, where he cut his teeth on the alt-comedy scene. But even in the thriving L.A. scene, one club loomed over the rest: the Comedy Store. "I have always found the Comedy Store to be the most intimidating club of my life," he explains.

'Secretary' hops on '50 Shades of Grey' bandwagon with recut trailer

45 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I’m gonna be honest. When this new trailer for the classic Bdsm rom-com “Secretary” turned up in my inbox this morning, I was not happy. How dare Lionsgate try to draw parallels between “50 Shades of Grey” — a book I’m 100% against on the grounds that it is abuse masquerading as kink — and what might be the best mainstream look at the Bdsm lifestyle? But nostalgia won out and I watched it anyway and now I’m convinced this re-release is a bondage Trojan horse. This trailer is far cry from the original, which played down the sexy and played up how two dysfunctional people find unconventional love in each other. But the new trailer does the job it sets out to do, which is to lure fans of “50 Shades of Grey” into watching “Secretary.” I’d argue that can only be a good thing. While we have to wait »

Not saying it was an obvious PGA win, but it for it to be suddenly dropped after missing Globes was a naive consensus I think. If Inarritu can snag DGA somehow this is all over. I have a suspicion Linklater will still win DGA, so then this season becomes a new talking point of shattering stats and assumptions.  Renaton: It's much more likely it's the PGA than the editing nom one.

Spaihts’ script is set on a spacecraft in the future with thousands of passengers making an interstellar voyage to a distant new planet. One passenger awakens from cryogenic sleep 90 years before anyone else and decides to wake »
