March 31st, 2014 8:35am EDT
The Good Wife
We don't know about you, but we are still very much in recovery from that bombshell The Good Wife dropped on us last Sunday. (If you haven't seen last week's episode, stop reading now - or if you must continue, you can read our review for the major reveal. Your choice there.) Setting aside the fact that we still get choked up thinking about what happened, we now have to turn our eyes to another, very important question: how, exactly, are you supposed to follow that up?

It's a question that plagues every writer who drops a major bombshell. Actually doing the deed - whether it's killing a ch...

Julianna Margulies faced last-minute dress drama when Globes gown went missing

Julianna Margulies
Actress Julianna Margulies had a last-minute panic to find the perfect dress for the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (12Jan14) when a shipment from her stylist went missing en route to Los Angeles.

The former E.R. star believes her Andrew Gn gown may have been stolen - and when it failed to arrive as part of a package of dresses from her New York-based stylist Cristina Ehrlich, she had just four days to find a replacement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fortunately Paris-based Gn was able to drop everything and create a new gown for Margulies just in time.

Unfortunately, the designer...

Julianna Margulies' Architectural Digest home flooded

Julianna Margulies
Actress Julianna Margulies experienced a nightmare return home from her recent family winter vacation - flights were delayed, her luggage went missing and when she finally got back to New York, she discovered her apartment had been flooded during the holidays.

The Good Wife star's Manhattan home looked very different to the one she shows off in the pages of the new Architectural Digest magazine, which ironically hit the streets the day the star returned from a trip to Colorado.

She tells U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, "We went skiing for Christmas this year. We went and stayed at th...

'The Good Wife' Review: 'We, The Juries'

January 13th, 2014 8:18am EST
The Good Wife
Now that The Good Wife has gotten plenty of mileage out of its personal drama, it's time to throw some professional scandal back into the mix.

Last week's episode ended with Eli finding out that an anonymous source sent the press video that insinuates Peter may have become Governor of Illinois through some less than ethical means. (You have to feel for Eli. He's just moved past worrying that Peter slept with his ethics consultant, and now this happens.) Eli brings this development to Peter and Marilyn, and the latter immediately starts an investigation. At the center of it is fixer Jim Moo...

Kerry Washington says her baby bump is her "best accessory".
The 36-year-old actress is expecting her first child with NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha - whom she married in an intimate ceremony in Hailey, Idaho in June last year - and said she didn't need a date for the Golden Globe Awards because she is carrying a child.
Speaking on the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday (12.01.14), she said: "I have the best date of the night - my little accessory here."
Kerry - who was nominated for Best Actress in a TV Drama Series for 'Scandal' for her role of Olivia Pope - wore a white Balenciaga go...

Josh Charles
Actor Josh Charles has jetted off to Thailand to enjoy a belated honeymoon, four months after marrying novelist Sophia Flack.

The Good Wife hunk was noticeably absent from the star-studded audience at the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday (08Jan14), when the hit legal show was named Favorite Network TV Drama and Charles was branded Favorite Dramatic TV Actor.

His TV co-star, Julianna Margulies, was left to collect Charles' prize on his behalf and she revealed he had a very good reason for skipping the first big Hollywood awards show of the year (14).

She explained, "Josh...

George Clooney gives great advice on everything but marriage, according to Julianna Margulies.
The 47-year-old actress - who co-starred with the Oscar-winning actor on 'E.R.' - has revealed they are still "good friends" and has hailed George as her "go-to person for advice."

Julianna Margulies and Chris Noth got their hands dirty on Saturday (26Oct13) as they joined forces with their The Good Wife co-stars to help rebuild New York homes damaged by last year's (12) superstorm Sandy.

Actress Julianna Margulies once feared her life was at risk after willingly following a stranger into a rundown New York building in search of a place to buy her favourite body oil.

The Good Wife star reveals she used to purchase the scent from Rastafarian street vendors in the Big Apple, but when she struggled to find the product two years ago, she became desperate.

She explains, "I'm obsessed with this specific oil and I used to buy it from the Rasta guys on the street in New York City and they were $5 a bottle and everyone used to say, 'You smell so good, that must be so expensive' and...

2013 Emmys Worst Dressed: Heidi Klum's Neck Brace Dress, Lena Dunham's Floral Disaster, More

September 23rd, 2013 11:00am EDT
Heidi Klum
One of the reasons people watch the Emmy Awards (besides cheering on their favorite shows) is to see the fashion. And although we like to get a glimpse of the stars walk the red carpet in their glamorous gowns, we really love to see their fashion missteps.

"Project Runway" host and "America's Got Talent" judge Heidi Klum usually has a keen eye for fashion. But her red Versace gown didn't quite work on Sunday night.

There is such a thing as too many sequins, and the neck brace-like top of her dress looked odd. She resembled a showgirl more than a supermodel.

Other celebs also made some fa...

Julianna Margulies
Former E.R. star Julianna Margulies has avoided a court showdown after settling a legal battle with her former managers.

The actress and executives at management firm D/F were scheduled to meet in front of a judge in January (14), but now it seems the trial won't be necessary.

D/F agent Steve Dontanville sparked the legal dispute last summer (Jul12), 15 months after his firm was fired as Margulies' representatives.

He claimed that he and his associates were due post-termination commissions of more than $420,000 (£280,000) after helping the actress land her leading role in hit TV drama Th...

'Good Wife' Star Julianna Margulies Heads To Trial Over Fight With Former Management Team

The Good Wife
Julianna Margulies is heading to trial in Los Angeles next year over a legal battle with her former management team.

D/F Management claim they are owed $420,000 in back payments for their alleged involvement in landing the actress roles on CBS show "The Good Wife" and as a spokesmodel for cosmetics brand L'Oreal.

The firm's lawyers are also seeking more money after "The Good Wife" was sold into syndication.

The agents represented Margulies from 2009 until 2011, and the actress filed a lawsuit in October claiming her ex-manager Steve Dontanville did not give her a written document of his ...

"The Good Wife" lead actress Julianna Margulies has described the Anthony Weiner sex scandal as "the gift that just keeps on giving," and she thinks the politician's story will influence the next series of her TV show.

In 2011, Weiner resigned from Congress after racy pictures emerged, during which he was forced to admit he had "exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature" with several women o...

The red carpet was full of bright colors at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards last night, but yellow was the most popular. "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen, winner of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, looked oustanding in a strapless canary yellow gown.

"Homeland" winner Claire Danes, who is several months pregnant, also opted for a strapless yellow dress that was (obviously) more loose fitting than Julie's.

Julianna Margulies
Actress Julianna Margulies has defended her hit show The Good Wife's controversial oral sex scene, insisting it was a bold move by drama co-creator Michelle King.

The former ER star's character Alicia Florrick was pleasured in a bathroom by her cheating spouse, portrayed by Chris Noth, during an episode which debuted in 2010 - and the sexy clinch immediately became a water cooler topic among fans.

Margulies admits she was initially concerned about how she'd play a woman in the throes of sexual ecstasy, but now she's proud of the scene.

She tells More magazine, "The first thing that went ...

The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

We love great gowns, but we really live for the fashion fails on the red carpet. Check out the stars who really missed the mark at this year's Emmy Awards:

First up - Gwyneth Paltrow. Two pieces equal double trouble for Gwenny. Her hair and make-up look flawless and her body is amazing, but the black lace midriff-baring Gucci gown pushed the envelop (and not in a good way.)

Next - Julianna Margulies. The white Armani Prive with the space age bustier looks like something even Judy Jetson wouldn't want in her closet.

Then there's Zooey Deschanel who chose a gown in a an interesting shade -...
