Celebrity Marriages: What Makes Them Work (Or Not) & Why It May Be Better To Not Marry At All

March 20th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
Eddie Murphy & Tracey Edmonds
Marriage is a sacred union between a loving couple until death do them part. Yet, in the Hollywood community it seems that most marriages end before the honeymoon does. Take Eddie Murphy, for example. He and Tracey Edmonds split this past January after just two weeks of (un)happily wedded bliss.

The probability of a celebrity marriage surviving is only 35 percent, according to enotalone.com. For the most part, celebrity marriages do not have the fairy tale or "movie ending" fans hope they will. Rates of divorce may seem higher in Hollywood than they actually are due to the heavy public...

Amy Adams' Characters Use Feminine Grace & Strong Will To Get What They Want

March 13th, 2008 2:01pm EDT
Amy Adams
For years, Hollywood has celebrated a certain type of empowered women - a strong nosed, uber self-confident, in-your-face fighter who is going to take on the establishment using whatever means necessary to get what she wants. The archetype of this character is Erin Brockovich who famously said "They're called boobs, Ed", and screamed her way from a legal secretary to the chief factor in toppling a billion dollar company that was poisoning its customers.

But in the tradition of Melanie Grifiith's Working Girl, Amy Adams has popularized a new type of woman: one who uses her feminine grac...

Starpulse TV Season In Review

Private Practice
It's been a bumpy television season full of winners, disappointments and a lot of forgetful folks. Some shows stumbled right out of the gate while others took steady steps towards a full-season pickup.

The TV season is nearing the halfway mark when most of the shows go into reruns, an indefinite period of torture this year thanks to the writers' strike. At least the respite provides the perfect time to take a look back at the season so far. This TV season, the TV gods brought us...

If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It: Starpulse Examines Plastic Surgery Among The Stars

Beauty is a funny thing. Forever a concern for both the beautiful and un-beautiful alike, attaining and maintaining a consistent level of seemingly effortless attractiveness requires, for most of us, a lot of work.

Saturating our television shows, magazines and movies (with the exception of most French films, to their credit), conventional standards of beauty are as inescapable as they are unrealistic.

September 13th, 2007 1:34pm EDT
Gossip Girl
Independent media agency TargetCast tcm has picked five new network shows they think will be hits, along with the five they think will fall to the bottom of the heap as the primetime season begins in a week.

NBC has two new shows that should do well, says Steve Farella, CEO of TargetCast tcm, a media planning and buying agency.

The Hollywood heartthrob also admitted he would also use ...
