All-Star Celebrity Apprentice
Last week, project manager Gary Busey ran roughshod over Plan B’s Lisa Rinna and Penn Jillette, and created his own wacky video for the team’s task. The team lost, and despite Gary’s claim that Penn and Lisa had worked against him, Gary was fired. Lil Jon’s team Power won the challenge and $40,000.00 for his charity, the American Diabetes Association.

This week, the teams meet up with Donald Trump and two executives (Rodney and Scott) representing Foxwoods Resorts. With them are John Rich, winner of 2011’s Celebrity Apprentice, and Donald Trump Jr., who will be the teams’ advisors. The cel...

Fall Review: 'Unforgettable'

September 21st, 2011 2:08am EDT
Unforgettable
Watching CBS' new series Unforgettable gave me a hint of deja vu.

The procedural reunites former Without A Trace star Poppy Montgomery with that show's network and its executive producer, Ed Redlich. Montgomery, who's become a redhead but still looks better than most of us, stars as former Syracuse cop Carrie Wells. Carrie has the gift (or the curse) of remembering almost everything - except for the murder of her sister.

It sounds familiar, doesn't it? A main character with a tragic past, not to mention that she used to be sleeping with her new partner - former Nip/Tuck lead Dylan Walsh...

August 19th, 2008 12:08pm EDT
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland's hearts skipped a beat while filming Flatliners (1990). Tom Cruise admired a young Aussie actress named Nicole Kidman and had her cast opposite him in Days of Thunder. The movie Seven ended with Gwynet...
