St. Elmo's Fire has been reignited - TV bosses have signed a deal to adapt the Brat Pack movie classic into a small screen series.

If Celebrities Were Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt, What Flavors Would They Be?

July 23rd, 2009 10:26am EDT
Katy Perry
Hollywood celebrities have a craving for frozen yogurt. That's right - they are putting the Red Bull aside (but not too far aside) for some fro-yo. Not just any fro-yo either. Celebrities are being Pinkberried.

If you do not know what Pinkberry Swirly Goodness is, then here's a little history. It is the brainchild of co-founders Shelly Hwang, a restaurateur, and Young Lee, a designer with an architectural background. Their love for frozen treats is what brought to life the premium frozen yogurt, and they opened their first store in West Hollywood in January 2005.

It is not uncomm...

I was completely traumatized so I've given up the game."

Lowe showed off a photograph of him holding the dead bird...

What Might Have Been: A Different Perspective on 'Brothers & Sisters'

January 10th, 2008 9:51am EST
Brothers & Sisters
I used to think that there was no crisis facing the Walker family that they would not rise to face. I was wrong. It seems that during the circus that is the writers strike, ABC quietly ousted show creator Jon Robin Baitz from "Brothers & Sisters."

I found this out not in a news story, but rather in an article Baitz posted on the Huffington Post. In his article he described his life in Los Angeles, his work on the show, the compromises that were made and the eventual parting of ways between Hollywood and himself. What got me thinking was his mention that if "Brothers & Sisters" was on ...

The 24 star has been sober for over three years, thanks to regular Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, but can still remember how booze took away his childhood inhibitions.

The 39-year-old actor explains, "I drank to change and alter my moods and to feel better... to deal with self-pity or depression, to a certain degree... It's (alcohol) like this wonder tonic. When you're awkward and you don't know how to act and you feel insecure and you're... 12 or 13... I realised after ...
