'Togetherness' Recap: 'Family Day' & 'Handcuffs'

1/19/2015 9:02am EST
HBO expands its “indie” television brand/block with its latest comedy, Togetherness. Yes it is another one of those ‘middle-aged white people with problems’ shows, but helmed by the indie movie favorites Duplass brothers, the low-key comedy works.

The pilot episode does a fine job in introducing the characters and setting up the main conceit of the show. Brett and Michelle Pierson find themselves in a marital rut, with three young children and a stagnant sex life, but it’s all about to get messier when Brett’s long-time friend, Alex, and Michelle’s sister, Tina, move in with them indefinit...

Why Is 42 Year Old Amanda Peet Not Afraid To Go Topless

'Togetherness' Star Amanda Peet Comments On Topless Scenes In Up
HBO is about to unveil their latest creation ‘Togetherness’ this coming Sunday on January 11. It’s the latest comedy-drama by Jay and Mark Duplass and has been getting some very positive feedback from the experts reviewing it out there.

So what is the most talked about element of this new show that is getting everyone’s attention? Is it the wonderful and witty writing, or is the storytelling and buzz that this show is getting from the critics? Neither - it’s all about Amanda Peet (who is one of four co-stars) and her wonderful breasts. Apparently the 42 year old actress appears topless in ...

Amanda Peet Uses What To Breastfeed?

1/7/2015 2:30pm EST
Amanda Peet Takes Breastfeeding To A Whole New Level With Cabbag
Amanda Peet's discussion of breastfeeding takes food to a whole other level.

The actress stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and discussed motherhood and her three children, Molly, Frances and Henry.

Just one month old, Peet swears by a home remedy that got her back on her feet quickly and urged other new mothers to try it.

Peet swears that raw cabbage is the secret successful breastfeeding after the talk show host revealed she saw a photo of the actress brushing her teeth with what looked like a cabbage bra.

The actress then revealed the cabbage helped with with the pain.


Fashion Fails: Meryl Streep, Rachel Wilde, Juliette Lewis, More

Meryl Streep
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

As awards season heats up, so do the chances of people failing spectacularly on the red carpet. We Love Meryl Streep, but we hate the black, shapeless gown she wore to the SAG Awards.

Rachel Wilde must have known that having a waist-high split in the middle of her gown would lead to shots like this. Even if that was fixed, we're not fans of the color or the too-big sleeves.

It seems Juliette Lewis is rubbing it in that it'...

Amy Adams
Can you feel it? The Oscars are right around the corner, and these leading ladies were warming up the red carpet last night at the SAG Awards in preparation for Hollywood’s biggest night in fashion. However, not everyone was a winner. We'll start with Amy Adams, who wowed in this blue dress with modern cuts.

Worst: Meryl Streep

Best: Jennifer Lawrence

Worst: Juliette Lewis

Best: Julie Bowen

Worst: Julia Roberts

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

This week we got a treat: The Emmys. That means plenty of fail to go around! Julianne Hough is a beautiful woman - but no one is mistaking her dress, which features a see-through portion to show off some granny panties, as beautiful.

A very daring cut for Claire Danes at The Emmys, but her light skin and the color of her dress offers no contrast and looks very plain. Plus, it has that lacy doily look.

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

9/23/2013 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...

Vibrant Yellow Gowns Dominate 2012 Emmy Fashion - See Tons Of Photos!

9/24/2012 9:11am EDT
Julie Bowen
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.

"Game Change" winner Julianne Moore picked a more conservative yellow gown with long sleeves, a higher neckline and a billowing skirt.

2012 Golden Globes fashion
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)...

Amanda Peet is desperate to expand her family with her screenwriter husband David Benioff, just eight weeks after giving birth to the couple's second child.

The star, 38, welcomed baby Molly in April and the actress admits she's ready to get pregnant again.

She tells, "I'm really old. He (Benioff) was like, 'We have to wait three years'. And I was like, 'We don't have three years! We'll be too old at that point.'"

The couple's first child, Frances, was born in 2007.

On March 25,2010, Los Angeles based Signature Magazine will be featuring a pregnant Amanda Peet on its Spring Fashion Cover.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - '2012,' 'Pirate Radio' & More

11/9/2009 9:52am EST
At some point this week I hope to catch the wacky comedy "The Men Who Stare at Goats." While I have read some bad reviews of the film, I believe my tendency to disagree with the mainstream, could be a wild card for my own appraisal of the movie.

I'm having difficulty believing the collection of George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges could contribute to a horrific film considering I how much appreciate their abilities on screen.

The holidays are approaching, and if people are not busy running around thinking of Christmas or Hanukkah gifts, they're considering what to do with their family when they actually have to entertain everyone.

Every year there are big blockbuster films that come out around Thanksgiving and Christmas purposely devoted to people looking to enjoy time with their families, or to escape from them for a few blissful hours.

Celebrities Who Get Naked On Screen: A Thin Line Between Classy & Trashy

Hollywood royalty used to use body doubles for filming sex scenes in their films; the thought of them baring it all was almost a joke. But as sex and nudity have taken a more artsy approach on screen, celebrities are jumping at the chance to take their careers to a more risqué level...

Yet, baring it all in films is a very touchy subject with actors. This is a topic young Hollywood and wannabe actors can't seem to grasp. If you are an established actor and nudity is done in good taste, it's viewed by most people as classy. But if you're just starting out, you don't want to be known as ...

Jenny McCarthy has taken aim at Amanda Peet over scathing comments the actress made about parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. McCarthy is leading a campaign to overhaul America's immunization programs, claiming vaccinations are largely responsible for autism.

The actress/model, who is the mother of a recovered autistic child, led a rally in Washington, D.C. this summer, calling for the Federal Government to clean vaccines of all toxins and to change a loaded schedule of immunization, which experts claim leads to the cause of autism.

The cause is controversial because l...

The Black Eyed Peas were very successful with their smash hit single "My Humps." So let's sing the following lines to the beat of the main chorus of that song (if you know it). Why? Because some celebrities can at times be major fashion disasters, and it just seemed fitting to belt out these original lyrics in their honor:

"My junks! My junks! My messy summer frumps! My boring summer dress, no guy is gonna look. My pointless grayish suit, no woman's gonna drool. My tacky rolled up jeans. I look like a hot mess. My messy summer frumps! My messy summer frumps! In the back and in the...
