Was Robin Thicke High During This Oprah Interview?

2 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It seems like Robin Thicke went from having the best year of his life to his absolute worst. Following the massive success of his hit "Blurred Lines" in 2013, which went to number one in more than 100 countries, his wife Paula Patton left him amidst his alleged infidelities. Now he's caught up in a legal battle with the family of Marvin Gaye, who claim he ripped off the beat for "Blurred Lines" from Gaye's song, "Got to Give It Up." And on Monday, court documents revealed that Thicke has also been battling a problem with drugs and alcohol. In the deposition that went public Monday, »

Rosie Perez Is the Best Thing About the New View, Says People's Critic

15 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The post-Barbara Walters version of The View made its premiere Monday on ABC, using Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" to greet the new panel: "The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate… I shake it off, shake it off." This seems like a rather defensive posture for a show starting its 18th season. But then again. Other than new host Rosie Perez talking about how she learned kung fu "just in case I had to kick some ass," the hour didn't go too well. It was stiff, polite and airless, like one of those Taiwanese parody cartoons that "dramatize" news scandals. »

'A Different World' cast reunites for 'Oprah: Where Are They Now?'

15 September 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In 1987, A Different World debuted as simply a Cosby Show spinoff. But by 1991, the show starring Jasmine Guy and Kadeem Hardison had surpassed Cosby in the ratings and earned an EW cover story touting it as “an ensemble comedy about black college life that’s brightly acted, politically and socially attuned, idiosyncratic, and yes, even funny.”

The cast members are reuniting for the Oct. 26 episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, which returns with new installments on Oct. 5. Watch a sneak peek below, in which they talk about inspiring a generation to attend college and fondly recall how creator Bill Cosby ends conversations. »

Q&A: Queen Latifah Talks Adding Twists to Her Talkshow

15 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The second season of “The Queen Latifah Show” premieres on Monday with not only a new look, but with twists in store for guests and viewers. Queen Latifah talked to Variety about her motivations for hosting a talkshow, what audiences can expect from the new season, being a hip-hop kid at heart and her HBO biopic on Bessie Smith.

What originally inspired you to do a talkshow?

Honestly, a lot of people had come to me about doing a talkshow since everyone found out that Oprah was going off the air. Everybody was kind of rushing to fill that vacuum and we saw a lot of people have come and gone and tried, and I think you have to take your time. No one else is Oprah, there is only one Oprah and there is no such thing as the next Oprah. Oprah is still busy being Oprah. So I »

Robin Thicke Says He Did Not Write "Blurred Lines," Admits Being High During Interviews

14 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Robin Thicke admitted he was high during most of his interviews that took place in the past year and claimed he didn’t write his hit song “Blurred Lines” in a deposition revealed in federal court on Monday.

Robin Thicke Says He Did Not Write 'Blurred Lines'

Thicke and his “Blurred Lines” collaborator Pharrell Williams gave their depositions in April with regards to a suit from the children of Marvin Gaye, who claim “Blurred Lines” is a rip-off of Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got To Give It Up.” The complaint is actually in response to a lawsuit filed by Williams and Thicke in August of 2013 to declare “noninfringement.”

In the depositions recently made public, Thicke said that it was Williams who actually wrote the entire song, without any help from the singer. When questioned about a comment made in an interview with GQ, where Thicke directly cited Marvin Gaye’s “Got »

Oprah, Vanessa Williams, and other stars who got their start in beauty pageants

14 September 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

While Miss America hasn’t bred any headline-stealing celebrities recently, beauty pageants were once a place where future stars got their start. Oprah was Miss Black Tennessee; Halle Berry was Miss Ohio. Vanessa Williams made it all the way to the top, nabbing the Miss America title in 1984.

With Miss America’s 88th annual pageant airing Sunday on ABC at 9 p.m. Et, EW took a look at the most famous Oscar winners and television icons who once won crowns and sashes:

Toronto Film Review: ‘Welcome to Me’

11 September 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Borderline personality disorder turns out to be more of a laughing matter than it probably should be in “Welcome to Me,” a strange and often startlingly inspired media/mental-illness comedy directed by actress-filmmaker Shira Piven. After drifting into a semi-dramatic mode in her earlier Toronto-premiered indies, “Hateship Loveship” and “Girl Most Likely,” , where she proceeds to work through her deep-seated emotional and psychological wounds on live TV. At 86 minutes, this breezily bonkers item doesn’t overstay its, er, welcome, spelling a possible warm reception in niche theatrical and VOD play.

The chief virtue of Eliot Laurence’s first-produced screenplay is not just its simple yet comically fertile premise, but also the brisk and blithely implausible manner in which it’s presented. This is not a movie that wastes any time trying to explain itself. Not long after she’s introduced watching her massive VHS collection of infomercials and “Oprah” reruns »

Rosie O’Donnell Returns to ‘The View’ Healthier and Happier

9 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral.

“The day it happened, I was definitely crying,” O’Donnell recalls. “I got my stuff and walked out.” She phoned her longtime publicist, Cindi Berger, telling her: “‘I’m never going back. You have to call and tell them. Call the lawyer. No matter what they say, I will not go back.”

But this is daytime TV after all. And in a plot twist worthy of “All My Children, »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Tusk’

7 September 2014 8:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“I am walrus, hear me blubber” might be the mantra of Kevin Smith’s “Tusk,” And yet there’s much good humor, too, in Smith’s latest low-budget indie, which reunites the director with his “Red State” star Michael Parks, who’s gifted here with the sort of tailor-made, career-capping role most actors die waiting for Quentin Tarantino to give them. He’d be worth the price of admission alone, but “Tusk” has other surprises up its pelt, including a pseudonymous special guest star who gives the movie a shot in the arm just when it needs one. Twenty years on from “Clerks” — and amid occasional threats of retirement — Smith has delivered a left-field surprise that ranks among his very best work, though how such an oddity plays in today’s marketplace (where innovative distrib A24 releases it Sept. 19) is anybody’s guess.

Welcome To Me Review | Tiff 2014

7 September 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Don’t get me wrong: I like making fun of the mentally ill as much as the next person.  There’s nothing quite like reducing human suffering down to a handful of quirks and laughing at the patient.  Shira Piven’s awful Welcome to Me is the modern-day equivalent of visiting an asylum, mocking the patients, and then calling their behavior “quirky”.  Not content with merely being cruel, Piven also reaches for a smug, self-satisfied critique of how society uses the mentally ill for entertainment even though she’s constantly using every clichéd indie trick in the book to belittle her protagonist.   The film is an ugly, smarmy piece of work that never ceases to pander for laughs, pathos, and plaudits. Alice Kleig (Kristen Wiig) is a single, middle-aged woman suffering from borderline personality disorder, but the movie doesn’t bother to treat that like it’s a real thing. »

Review: Kristen Wiig walks a comic tightrope in the uncomfortable 'Welcome To Me'

6 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I reviewed "The Judge" last night, I talked about how one character in particular really rubbed the wrong way. In the film, Robert Downey Jr's character has a younger brother who is portrayed as "slow." I put that in quotes because the film goes out of its way to avoid ever naming what's wrong with him, and it's that movie thing where they're afraid to offend anyone so they make it so generic that it's basically offensive to everyone. It bothers me because it treats the character as an easy punchline, a cheap laugh, and they use him for convenient exposition. Need to explain something? Just have the slow brother ask someone to explain it to him again. I'll be honest… it made my skin crawl, and they certainly aren't the first to do it. When I first heard the premise for "Welcome To Me," I was afraid »

Comedy: Joan Rivers' 9 Funniest Moments

4 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Joan Rivers passed away Aug. 4 at the age of 81. Rivers was a unique voice, at once modern and classic—she was timely in her commentary yet refused to make apologies. Historically, she was one of the first female standup comedians, and 60 years later she was still the best.

Joan Rivers Funniest Moments

To this day Rivers was the first and last woman to ever host a late night talk show on network television. Incisive, shrill, xenomorphic, vicious, honest and brilliant, Rivers was a comedian’s comedian, and this is a list of some of her best moments. Naturally, none of this is safe for work.

#1 Joan Rivers’ Ron Bennington Interviews

Radio personality and brilliant interviewer Ron Bennington had three detailed interviews with Joan Rivers—in May of 2010, and in March and July of 2014. The interviews are masterfully orchestrated by Bennington who essentially lets his subject steer the interview, and carefully inquiring for more detail. »

Nothing Is Sweeter Than Reese and Oprah Together at Last

30 August 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Reese Witherspoon is known for being a popular celebrity Bff (remember her trip to Napa, CA, with Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore?), and it looks like she's hit it off with yet another famous lady. This time, Reese hung out with none other than Oprah Winfrey! The two buddied up at the Telluride Film Festival on Friday, posing for pictures with friends amid the scenic backdrop of Telluride, Co. "Celebrating #WILDmovie . . . #sograteful #someonepinchme," she wrote in the caption of her Instagram with Oprah, Laura Dern, and Cheryl Strayed. Reese and Laura popped up at the festival to promote their new movie, Wild, which is inspired by Cheryl's bestselling memoir. It's just the latest stop in what has been a headline-grabbing Summer for the actress. On Wednesday, Reese donned her Legally Blonde ensemble to show support for a fan with cancer, and earlier this month, she slipped into her bikini »

Witherspoon plays the role of Strayed, and she also co-produced the film. According to Variety, the pre-screening buzz from the festival is gaining the actress some serious attention, "She offers a tour de force performance that moves her solidly into the Oscar race in the best actress category."

Telluride: ‘Wild’ World Premiere Brings Tears And Oscar Talk For Reese Witherspoon

29 August 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Telluride Film Festival  got started with a bang this afternoon — with a special Patrons screening in front of Friday night’s official launch — as Fox Searchlight’s December release Wild  had its World Premiere and first-ever public screening. The best-selling nonfiction book by Cheryl Strayed about her hike across the 1,100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail has been turned into a beautifully crafted cinematic journey by director Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club). Reese Witherspoon, who also co-produced, delivers her best screen work since her Oscar-winning turn in Walk The Line, and this three-dimensional portrayal of a woman searching for herself — after a disastrous divorce, the death of her beloved mother (perfectly played by Laura Dern), sexual promiscuity, drugs and a stint on the streets — is certain to put her back in the thick of the Best Actress race this year. It’s a whale of a tale and a great role. »

8 Reasons It's Time to Let the Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston Feud Die

28 August 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's time, everyone. We know it's so easy to bring up what happened between Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston whenever anyone talks about them or writes about them. But, c'mon. This feud or rivalry or whatever you want to call it with Jen and Angelina needs to be dead and buried. Why? Glad you asked: 1. It's been nine years. Yep. It's been nine years since Brad and Jen divorced. As in almost a decade. Why are we still talking about something that happened nearly a decade ago? Well, we did just bring up Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch in 2005 because he was so in love with Katie Holmes. But that was for nostalgia's sake. Also, that was an insane »
