Julianna Margulies' Flashes Through Dazzling Gown

6/3/2015 8:36am EDT
'Good Wife' Star Julianna Margulies Flashes Her Underwear In See
Like so many other stars, Julianna Margulies arrived at Monday's Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards (aka the CFDA) flaunting a dazzling new outfit.

But unlike so many others, Julianna Margulies also flaunted something else: her underwear.

The "Good Wife" star looked stunning in a black Michael Kors gown, coated in head-to-toe glitter and revealing just the tiniest hint of cleavage. But the gown was also very see-through, and it didn't exactly take an eagle-eye to spot the star's undies on the red carpet.

You can see 'em yourself in the above photo.

But as far as celebrity un...

Did 'The Good Wife' Season 6 Reach Its Full Potential?

5/11/2015 9:07am EDT
'The Good Wife' Finale Recap And Review: 'Wanna Partner?' - Let'
The sixth season of The Good Wife draws to a close with "Wanna Partner?," which sees Alicia Florrick put the finishing touches on her new career direction as well as tangle with the government one more time over a secret police facility detaining one of her clients. But does it cap off the season the way it should? Yes and no.

With her new home office all set up, Alicia is chatting with Eli and Peter, the latter of whom says he's been asked to run for President of the United States by the Illinois Democratic Committee.

Before she can do more than awkwardly chuckle at that, she gets a voic...

'The Good Wife': What Does The Future Hold For Alicia?

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Don't Fail' - Where To From H
After last week's drama-filled episode, The Good Wife has just two more left in its bag for season six. And the first of these, "Don't Fail," sees Alicia having more flashbacks to the earlier days of her law career. When she's not trying to write her new book.

The show takes pains to show us how mundane her life has become now that she's no longer State's Attorney-to-be and isn't sure of her future with the firm that she founded. She has to hang up on telemarketers, go shopping at the hardware store, and call all the donors who gave money to her now failed campaign so that they can hang up...

'The Good Wife': Kalinda's Exit Story Becomes Clear

4/27/2015 9:45am EDT
'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'The Deconstruction' - How Doe
After The Good Wife blew up its State's Attorney storyline two weeks ago, we've been asking ourselves what this show is going to do, not just for the end of season six but for a potential season seven. In "The Deconstruction," we find out that it's a little bit of deja vu: toying with the same splitting-firms storyline from season five, except in this case everyone behaves like children.

Meanwhile, Kalinda's exit story finally becomes clear, as she takes big steps toward resolving the Lemond Bishop situation. But all you really need to know is that no one is happy with anyone and that some...

'The Good Wife' Doesn't Paint A Very Flattering Picture Of Chicago

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Winning Ugly' - Crimes Come O
"Winning Ugly" is an apt title for this week's episode of The Good Wife, which focuses on all the bad things that the main characters didn't know that they were getting away with, and who's going to be held responsible now that they're no longer getting away with them.

Fresh off her email problem, Alicia faces a voter fraud investigation, while Diane Lockhart becomes aware that the evidence she used to save Cary from prison was actually manufactured by Kalinda. Needless to say, no one has clean hands. Except for maybe Finn.

Alicia is looking all despondent as she watches a CBS News report...

'The Good Wife' Leaked Email Drama Continues

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Loser Edit' - Spin The Emails
After last week's mess of political scheming and Internet hacking, Alicia Florrick has a lot of questions to answer. But in "Loser Edit," this week's episode of The Good Wife, she's still trying to get out of answering them, this time with some help from Peter.

Meanwhile, Diane is pulled into a highly charged argument, and everyone else finally catches on to Kalinda, but is it too little, too late? Things aren't looking good (pun intended) for any of the show's leading ladies.

Reporter Petra Moritz (a returning Lily Rabe from American Horror Story) is putting together a piece on Alicia's ...

'The Good Wife' Email Hack And Post-Election Drama

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Undisclosed Recipients' - Don
So the State's Attorney's election is over - so now what? That's the big question at the heart of this week's episode of The Good Wife, "Undisclosed Recipients," which between the post-election drama and another hacking problem, feels like it's going back to some of the same plot wells.

In what could've been a jumping-off point to start something fantastic for the remainder of the season, ultimately the biggest takeaway for the audience is to be more careful with one's emails.

Everyone at Florrick, Agos & Lockhart is celebrating Alicia's victory for two seconds before their motivations be...

'The Good Wife' Recap and Review: 'Red Meat' - Who Won The Election?

'The Good Wife' Recap and Review: 'Red Meat' - Who Won The Elect
Election day is finally here on The Good Wife, putting an end to the storyline that's been the focus of most of the sixth season. "Red Meat" wraps up Alicia's campaign in precisely the way you could've predicted it would end a while ago, but the lack of surprise is compensated for with some humor in unexpected places that makes the road more traveled still entertaining.

Alicia and Jonathan are pretending that they didn't just make out as Alicia meets up with Peter, who naturally is not thrilled that she took aim at him in her latest speech. She retorts that once the day is over, they can g...

'The Good Wife' At PaleyFest: Matt Czuchry Talks Cary In Season 6

'The Good Wife' At PaleyFest: Matt Czuchry Talks Cary In Season
The Good Wife finally joined the PaleyFest LA lineup on Saturday night, and we were on the red carpet at the Dolby Theatre to quiz star Matt Czuchry about the ups and downs that his character, Cary Agos, has been through so far in the current season - as well as the one big change that's about to come his (and our) way.

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains spoilers if you are not caught up with the current season of The Good Wife.

The character of Cary may be the most changed over the entire run of the series, and he certainly was thrown for a loop during the first half of season six. Fan...

What Does Michelle Obama Have In Common With 'The Good Wife'?

Michelle Obama Plays 'The Good Wife' At Prez' State Of Union Add
Michelle Obama clearly watches too much network television.

Dressed in a Michael Kors tweed skirt suit, Michelle Obama probably didn't realize her designer attire had been worn on-screen before on the hit TV series "The Good Wife."

The skirt suit was first seen on actress Julianna Margulies in the role of Alicia Florrick, the wife of former state attorney Peter Florrick. The character of Florrick was jailed following a notorious political corruption and sex scandal.

Fans of the CBS show picked up on the twinning reel-life and real-life wives immediately.

Now that The Good Wife has answered the burning question hanging over it all season, it's time for the series to refocus on Alicia Florrick's campaign for State's Attorney. The political side of the show takes center stage in "The Debate," in which Alicia and Frank Prady (David Hyde Pierce) finally go head-to-head, and her estranged husband Peter worries about a potential riot in the streets of Chicago.

The episode opens with a news report about two police officers facing a grand jury verdict over the death of a civilian - just minutes before Alicia goes on stage for her debate with Prady....

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Hail Mary' - Desperate Times
After leaving us on a tear-jerker of an ending back in November, The Good Wife returns for the second half of its season with two of its principals heading on seemingly unstoppable courses in two opposite directions: one facing imminent time in prison, and the other continuing her campaign for political office. By the end of the episode, they both get surprises - and so do we.

Alicia's coughed up several thousand dollars to hire Bill Kroft (Domenick Lombardozzi, aka Herc from The Wire), a "prison consultant" who's supposed to prepare Cary for the next four years - two with good behavior - ...

Sometimes, in politics, you've got to do some things that you don't want to do. Just like in relationships. And sometimes, you call in the guy from Numb3rs to help you figure it all out. Such is the case with this week's episode of The Good Wife.

Jonathan and "media specialist" Josh Mariner (David Krumholtz, making his return to the network since the cancellation of Partners) are putting together Alicia's campaign video, much to the displeasure of the candidate and her psuedo-assistant Marissa Gold (Sarah Steele). This keeps Alicia from being there as Diane and Cary meet with the FBI, who ...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Red Zone' - Pick Your Side
Overstepping one's boundaries, either actual or perceived, seems to be the theme of this week's The Good Wife. Every major character is either finding some sort of trouble, telling someone else how to get out of it, or both. It's all quite the tangled mess, but it does come with some pleasant revelations at the end.

While Jonathan (a returning Steven Pasquale)'s focus group rambles in half a dozen directions, Owen (Dallas Roberts) asks Alicia to help one of his students with a rape case, and no sooner has he put on the "puppy dog face" than Diane drags her over to listen to the tape of Car...

Our Favorite Female Film Stars From The 90s Still Owning Hollywo
There is no denying that some of the hottest women from the 1990's still reign over Hollywood today! From Buffy, Rachel Green and Carrie Bradshaw on our television screens to G.I. Jane, a Speed-ster and a "Lethal Weapon," these iconic actresses became household names and defied the Hollywood standards of women. Let's take a look at some actresses whose careers blossomed in the nineties.

Now that Alicia's entertaining the idea of running for State's Attorney, The Good Wife can kick the political part of itself back into full consciousness. In an episode devoted entirely to whether or not she's going to chase political office, the show almost gleefully enjoys exposing all the warts and quirks of the life of Alicia Florrick, in a rapid-fire hour that checks off a whole list of dirty laundry while we just try to keep up.

Olivia Pope's not the only one drinking this week, as Alicia's breaking out the wine and cheese for a "talk" with Eli, not realizing that if she's going to r...

The two stars played the principal and vice principal of fictitious Saugerties High School (not to be confused with the real Saugerties, NY, High School), singing their way through the school's morning announcements to the tunes of Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, Lil Wayne and Taylor Swift.

After last week's uncomfortable episode, The Good Wife opts for a lighter touch this week, and it mostly works. When Alicia meets Daniel Irwin (Nestor Carbonell, from every show ever made, but we're always going to think of him as Batmanuel from The Tick) while both are going through the tedious process of jury duty, flirting is immediate.

Everything else that follows is awkward, from Alicia talking to herself when she doesn't know what to do, to her watching some intentionally bad film that's way too on the nose. The good news here is that Carbonell's a natural in the romantic foil role (...

You could call this the "reunion" episode of The Good Wife. Should be future Emmy winner Josh Charles is back, directing the action, while Dylan Baker once again reprises his role as the show's creepiest client, Colin Sweeney. The result is an installment that's kind of like Clue, except without the three different endings.

Needing a very important signature on some merger paperwork, Alicia gets roped into Sweeney's engagement party and stuck having to convince his equally bizarre fiancee Renata (played by Laura Benanti, previously seen as Det. Nick Amaro's wife Marie on Law & Order: Speci...

In the fickle word of entertainment, it's rare when a television show makes it through its first season.

(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...

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.

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 ...
