Ireland Baldwin Shares Hospital Photo While Recovering From Emer
Ireland Baldwin, the daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, was rushed to the hospital late last week with severe stomach pains. The 19-year-old was quickly diagnosed with appendicitis, a condition that can be fatal if not caught in time.

The 8 Biggest Snubs And Craziest Surprises Of The 2015 Oscars

The 8 Biggest Snubs And Craziest Surprises Of The 2015 Oscars
2015 was not the year for Oscar drama.

There were no underdogs that came out of nowhere for the unexpected win. There were no obvious favorites that lost to a weird backwards choice (and thus, very few vegetable platters hurled at the TV in blind fury).

Instead, this year was all about "which frontrunner's gonna win it?"- categories where the winner was down to one or two (or three, sometimes) favorites, and one of those favorites inevitably took home a small, nude, gold man.

But there was still snubs and there were still surprises, and we're still going to catalogue them for you. Like w...

Alec Baldwin Is Writing A Tell-All Memoir?
Alec Baldwin might not seem like the ideal memoir-writing celebrity. Let's be honest here- the word "memoir" invites gravitas, the kind of gravitas a James Earl Jones or Martin Scorcese might bring.

Gravitas aside, Baldwin does have a memoir on the way. The book, which will be entitled "Nevertheless," will be published by Harper (a part of HarperCollins) and will release in 2016.

The memoir, as any good memoir should, will cover the entirety of Baldwin's life. And that'll include "hits and flops, marriage, divorce," according to an official statement.

Hey, that might even include all the...

12 Celebrities On Santa's 2014 Naughty List
Every year Santa Claus makes a list (and checks it twice) to find out who's been naughty and who's been nice throughout the year, and to help the big man out we've compiled a list of a dozen folks who we think should be expecting a big, fat lump of coal in their stockings this year.

Two of the year's biggest offenders are those folks up there ^ The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe (Giuseppe).

The couple was indicted on over 40 counts of tax, mail and wire fraud earlier this year for not filing taxes and securing huge loans by making up income informati...

Seven Great Actors Who Excel In The Movies And On TV

Double Threats: 7 Great Actors Who Excel In The Movies And On Te
The hierarchy when it comes to acting in Hollywood has historically always placed more importance and gravitas on the work of actors who have appeared on the silver screen when compared to their TV counterparts.

Legendary actors who got their start on TV like Bill Murray (Saturday Night Live), Michael Douglas (The Streets of San Francisco) and Denzel Washington (St. Elsewhere) were only said to have "made it" as huge stars once they were able to transition into movies.

But a strange thing has happened over the last few years - mega movie stars are falling all over themselves to try and ge...

Judge Tells Alec Baldwin To 'Be A Good Boy' & Stay Out Of Troubl
Alec Baldwin has to "stay out of trouble," according to a New York City judge. The actor was arrested in May after he was spotted bicycling against the flow of traffic along Manhattan's Fifth Avenue.

Alec Baldwin lost his talk show on MSNBC following a street tirade caught on camera, but he doesn't seem to have trouble getting acting jobs.

Despite the fact that a bumbling mayor could make for a good comedy show (a la Parks and Recreation), it's actually being developed as a one-hour series and appears to be focusing on poli...

'Penny Dreadful': 5 Monsters We'd Like Added To The Mix (And Who
On paper, Showtime's monster mash horror-drama Penny Dreadful sounded like a mess. Take the classic monsters of literature and the silver screen and throw em' in a televisual blender with the ever-squinty Josh Hartnett as the lead Press puree and stand way way back because the cheese is gonna' fly. Seriously, anyone who saw the very sorry screen adaption of Alan Moore's phenomenal comic book "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman" knows what I'm blogging about. Fortunately, Showtime knows their stuff and having Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Logan running things gives us an atmospheric a...
