Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria debuted her foray into fashion design with a collaboration with the The Limited last year. Inspiring by the success of their joint venture, Longoria decided to launch her own namesake brand, which she presented on Sept. 13 for New York Fashion Week. Before the show, she was in knots.
Even with her mother Ella and close friend and former co-star on NBC’s Telenovela Jencarlos Canela by her side backstage, Longoria was jumpy before the show:“I was super nervous, I was shaking,” she told am New York. Once the presentation wrapped and the patrons expressed enthusiasm for the line, »

The productions were perfect and that’s where we should leave them. A plea from a fan: make something else
What a triumph for two of the finest television shows of the past year. Australians have always been ambivalent about Our Nicole, but there she was, clasping an Emmy award for her tight, complicated, intense portrayal of Celeste in Big Little Lies, a whip-smart story that blends a murder mystery with an exploration of female friendship.
And The Handmaid’s Tale, starring the mesmerising Elisabeth Moss, a brave, dark nightmare of a series. For many liberals, it was a glimpse of a totalitarian state too close for comfort in Trump’s America – an instant cultural touchstone. Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale dominated the Emmys, and deservedly so.

BT and AMC have announced that BT customers will be the first to see the acclaimed new TV drama Snatch, starring Rupert Grint (the Harry Potter films) in the UK. The 10-episode original series will premiere on AMC in the UK on 31st October at 10pm, exclusively to BT customers. The full box set will also be available on demand to BT TV customers after the premiere.
Based loosely on the wildly popular Guy Ritchie movie of the same name, Snatch centres on a group of twenty-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high stakes world of organised crime. They must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London’s underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.

Before Eva Longoria was ever in the limelight, she was flipping burgers at Wendy’s. As a teen, the former Desperate Housewives actress worked at the fast food chain to make money for her Quinceañera (just one of many celebs who have taken that career path).
Luckily for us, she still remembers the Wendy’s method. On The Rachael Ray Show on Monday, Longoria showed off her tricks for how to dress the patty like Wendy’s does, and also revealed how she builds her favorite burger rendition.
The Texas native says the fast food restaurant‘s secret is all in the condiments. »

“Anna is the best human being in the world,” Longoria told People of her Overboard costar and new Bff at the Kiss This 4Mbc campaign launch event in New York Friday. “She plays my best friend so I was like, ‘we’re gonna be best friends. We Are best friends now.’ And she was like, ‘Okay you’re scaring me.’ But no, we fell in love quick. And she’s just a really great human being.”

Getting people to tune in to TV shows has gotten so complex it now requires everything from digital-data analytics to animal husbandry.
Yes, ABC has already seeded TV and the web with a glitzy video using Taylor Swift’s new single to hawk its Thursday-night lineup (think “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away With Murder”). “With all the competition out there, you really need to make some noise,” said Rebecca Daugherty, executive vice president of marketing for ABC Entertainment. But the network will also hold screenings for its new “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” where guests can treat themselves to a session of goat yoga. Yes, that’s right: You can do downward dog with an upward goat scaling your back.
CBS, meanwhile, will promote the sitcom “Me, Myself and I,” which examines its protagonist at three different times in his life, with a website that allows users to upload a photo of themselves, then »

Below, take a look at who he thinks will win in the main categories this year — and plan your own ballot accordingly.
Best Limited Series: Big Little Lies (HBO)
This riveting drama started out like a Monterey reboot of Desperate Housewives but turned into a much more powerful tale about abuse. With a grade-a cast—Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley — it was a big deal.
Best Comedy: Atlanta (FX)

Real talk: Can we just give all six of these women an award at this year’s Emmys and be done with it? Because choosing just one winner feels like an impossible task.
The 2017 nominees for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie include four (!) Oscar winners, all of whom would cruise to victory in a less competitive year. Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon both earned nods for HBO’s rich-moms drama Big Little Lies, with Kidman holding a tiny edge for her heartbreaking work as abused wife Celeste. And it’s fitting that Jessica Lange and »
Days after adding seven new actors for Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why, Netflix has doubled down and announced four more names joining the cast in recurring roles.
Desperate Housewives alum/Supergirl villain Brenda Strong will play Nora Walker, the mother of Justin Prentice’s Bryce, while Jake Weber (Medium) will play her husband Barry, a successful hedge fund manager and pillar of the community.
In the fifth episode of the FX limited series “Feud,” aptly titled “And the Winner Is … (The Oscars of 1963),” bitter rivals Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) go head-to-head at the Oscars. Never mind that Crawford wasn’t even nominated: She manages to steal the night by offering to accept the golden statue on behalf of the other lead actress nominees.
And now Lange and Sarandon find themselves nominated against each other in probably the most competitive category of the year: lead actress in a limited series or TV movie. But don’t draw any parallels to the actresses they played on screen; Lange assures us there are no real-life similarities. “I was so happy the day I saw the nominations and realized the six main actors in the piece were all nominated,” Lange says, referring not only to her and Sarandon, but also their supporting cast of Judy Davis, Jackie Hoffman »
