Keeping Up With the Kardashians Recap: Khloe Kardashian Admits She Knew Lamar Odom Cheated, Drinks Pain Away

14 July 2014 2:38 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Breaking up is hard to do -- especially when your ex is going around telling everyone it's not over. During the July 13 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe Kardashian continued to deal with the fallout of her split from estranged husband Lamar Odom, which led to her revealing that she knew he cheated on her while they were married. "He's now wearing his ring full time," the 30-year-old reality star told sister Kourtney Kardashian of Odom, 34. "F--k your ring. You were wearing it [...] »

Film Review: ‘The Breakup Guru’

30 June 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Breaking up is hard to do — unless you hire someone else to do it for you. So goes the premise of “The Breakup Guru,” a helming debut for mainland star Deng Chao and theater director Yu Baimei, who have claimed that they’re pushing the envelope of Chinese comedy but have in fact merely pushed the genre to a new low in terms of racist and homophobic humor. Rather than cultivating the chemistry between its two leads, a masterful seducer and a girl who’s unswervingly loyal to her lover, the film turns into a one-man show for Deng. Nevertheless, marketing hype and a lack of local competition propelled opening-weekend box office to $20.6 million from Chinese and Stateside theaters.

After collaborating on a student comedy at the Central Academy of Dramatic Arts, Yu and Deng were reunited professionally when Deng took the lead in “The Breakup Guru,” a play Yu directed. »

Penny Dreadful Finale Recap: Fangs for the Memories

29 June 2014 8:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Over and over again in its first season, Showtime’s gorgeous and ghastly Penny Dreadful has shocked us. With the murders of Proteus and Van Helsing. With Ethan and Dorian’s absinthe-drenched hook-up. With performances by Eva Green as Vanessa that are so preternatural, she risks being accused of sorcery. Yet the series still managed to save a few surprises for the finale. So read on, why don’t you, and savor once again the thrills, chills and battles of wills that ran through “Grand Guignol” like so much blood through a vein.

WWE: 10 Most Controversial Superstar Departures Ever

9 May 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Breaking up is hard to do, especially if you’re a pro wrestler on your way out of the WWE.

The conventional exit is WWE’s much lampooned ‘best of luck in your future endeavours’ message. The company post this alonside the wrestler’s name on wwe.com after releasing a superstar. However, it isn’t always that simple.

On several occasions we have witnessed employee / employer relations at an absolute low. This has sometimes led to a wrestler leaving WWE without permission, departing in a way that sets the internet wrestling community into a frenzy of discussion about the rights and wrongs. The most recent example of this was Cm Punk.

The disgruntled star left WWE abruptly at the end of January. The reasons aren’t clear but he was reportedly physically and mentally drained. WWE’s decision not to use Punk in the main event of »

The Ultimate Breakup Playlist: Songs for Every Stage of Splitting Up

15 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Breaking up is hard to do. Sorry, let us rephrase that… Breaking up is a horrifying pain in the ass. And yes, you can get by with a little help from your friends. Or you can drown your sorrows with buckets and buckets of clichés: ice cream, potato chips and/or chocolate. Or better yet: ice cream mixed with chocolate-covered potato chips. Don't knock it. But what you need, what you really need to get through a breakup is an anthem. You need that one song that gives you comfort when all you want to do is cocoon yourself in blankets and pillows in an effort to keep the pain out. And since pretty much every person on this planet will go through a breakup at one time or another, we've »

'True Detective' Creator Debunks Fan Theories

6 March 2014 11:45 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto put the kibosh on any speculation that either of the two troubled sleuths at the heart of his hit HBO show is the serial killer. The author told Buzzfeed, "Going into the final episode, I wanted to end any audience theorizing that Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) or Hart (Woody Harrelson) was the killer, and also provide a concrete face to the abstract evil they’re chasing." Fair warning, spoilers ahead.

Of the myriad theories suggesting Cohle or Hart was guilty, Pizzolatto said he was a little surprised, »

'True Detective' Recap: Face Facts

2 March 2014 7:15 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Last Sunday night, I gave True Detective a bad review. In return, it gave me nightmares.

That night, my brain conjured up not one but two separate imaginary season finales in dream form. In one, Rust Cohle and Marty Hart tracked the killer conspiracy to an oily Louisiana politician (played, in the dream, by Deadwood veteran Zach Grenier, proving that my brain and True Detective's casting director have a similar attitude about raiding past great HBO dramas for talent). Content they'd gotten their man at last, they didn't notice the hulking, »

The Dark Thrills of 'True Detective'

28 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Oh, yeah, Rustiiiiin Cohhhhhhle," drawls a delighted Matthew McConaughey. It's the day after the annual Oscar luncheon, where the nominees mingle and have a group photo taken, but he's not talking about Dallas Buyers Club. Today, his mind is on Rustin "Rust" Cohle, the brilliant but deeply troubled Louisiana homicide cop he plays opposite Woody Harrelson in True Detective, the stunner of a debut show from a former college professor with little TV experience named Nic Pizzolatto. McConaughey was the first actor to sign on to True Detective (the first »

'True Detective' Recap: Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

23 February 2014 7:05 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Like its lead characters, True Detective does a certain number of things really, really well—and other things really, really poorly. And like them, it can have a hard time knowing which is which.

In tonight's episode, "Haunted Houses," this struggle got the spotlight, and the results weren't pretty. Gone was last week's latticework of complex and compelling narratives regarding the pivotal moment in Rust Cohle and Marty Hart's supposed takedown of a serial killer, the one where it looked like it all went right but in reality it all went horribly wrong. »

Berlin Film Review: ‘If You Don’t, I Will’

14 February 2014 7:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Breaking up is hard to do, yet entirely pleasurable to watch, in “If You Don’t, I Will,” an effortless fifth feature from writer-helmer Sophie Fillieres that goes down with the mildly spiked smoothness of a chilled chenin blanc — or, to reference its single funniest gag, deep-frozen champagne. Distinguished by exquisite performances from Emmanuelle Devos and Mathieu Amalric as a bourgeois couple unsure when to call time on their marriage, the pic initially follows the dry, droll template set by so many tasteful French relationship dramedies, before venturing into less comforting emotional territory for its final act. Moderate international arthouse exposure beckons for this Berlinale Panorama premiere, which opens March 5 in France.

In one of her more harried moods, Devos’ solitude-seeking protagonist introduces herself as “Gena Rowlands” to a bemused stranger, which is least a partial indication of what Fillieres is aiming for tonally with this study of splintered hearts. »

House of Lies' Ben Schwartz on Fallout From the "Explosion" and "Dark" Season Ahead

11 January 2014 9:47 AM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Breaking up is hard to do — in relationships, but also in business.

That will be especially true for House of Lies' (formerly) inseparable pod of Marty (Don Cheadle), Jeannie (Kristen Bell), Clyde (Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson) after they all went their separate ways in the Season 2 finale.

"We are recovering from the explosion," Schwartz tells TVGuide.com. "What happens when...

Arts 2014 preview: talking points

What more has Courtney Love possibly got to share with us, and how will Steve McQueen fare at the Oscars? These are just a few of the topics that will set tongues wagging in the new year

Pop

Courtney Love's memoir

The question is not so much "what will be in Courtney Love's book?" as "what could possibly be in Courtney Love's book that she hasn't already spoken/ranted/raved about?" Still, her self-titled autobiography has been described as "too crazy not to be true" and should provide her definitive take on her time with Hole and her doomed relationship with Kurt Cobain. It will also, hopefully, spill previously unspilled beans on her relationships with Billy Corgan and Steve Coogan. Oh, and according to an interview she did with Rolling Stone, it was inspired by Russell Brand's My Booky Wook. The mind boggles. Tj
