Celebrities That Turn 40 In 2014

January 1st, 2014 11:00am EST
Leonardo DiCaprio
Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2014!

It's that time of year for our annual "who is turning 40" this year extravaganza. Truth is, lots of people do, but we'll just keep it to the more famous variety of peeps in the world.

Doing some simple math, 40 years ago would make it 1974.

For those of you who weren't around that year, the mantra of 74' and the world was energy crisis -gasoline was a little hard to get and lines at gas stations were blocks long. Because of the crisis, our then President, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon imposed a 55 MPH speed limit on highways. That wasn't the re...

June 3rd, 2013 1:00pm EDT
Matthew McConaughey & Camilla Alves
A slew of stars attended the 6th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Jersey City, New Jersey, over the weekend.

Matthew McConaughey looked dapper in a white suit with a matching vest and blue button-down shirt. His model wife Camila Alves also looked stunning. She showed off her curvy figure in a yellow bandage dress.

The actor was recently included in a list of the sexiest celebrity beach bodies. He stars in the upcoming film "The Wolf Of Wall Street" opposite Leonardo DiCaprio about a Long Island stockbroker who serves 20 months in prison for refusing to cooperate in a massive 1990s s...

Tiffani Thiessen Sizzles At 39 In New Photo Shoot For 'Me In My Place'

January 24th, 2013 11:07am EST
Tiffani Thiessen
Former Saved By The Bell star Tiffani Thiessen is looking hotter than ever at 39.

The sexy actress, who now stars on USA's White Collar, recently did a shoot for Me In My Place; and she revealed that she nearly became a Bond girl.

"I tested but didn't get it, it was also probably the hardest rejection because I'm such a fan of the movies," she tells MIMP. "It was between me and 2 other actresses at the time."

And perhaps if she'd been chosen it may have prevented the actress who got the job from a not so flattering title.

"Unfortunately the actress who got the job, went on to be voted a...

Tiffani Thiessen Lost Her Virginity At 14 Years Old

July 31st, 2012 9:57pm EDT
Tiffani Thiessen
Actress Tiffani Thiessen has admitted losing her virginity when she was just 14 years old.

The former Saved By The Bell star talked about her sex life in a candid chat on Howard Stern's radio show on Monday, revealing her first time was with an older boyfriend.

Thiessen also told the shock jock she plans to one day talk openly about sex with her daughter Harper, who was born in 2010.

She said, "Now, having a daughter, it's really hard to talk about (losing my virginity)! I'm not going to be dishonest with her (about sex) because honestly, for me, I think my mom can at least rest easy tha...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Pulling Strings' (3.14)

February 7th, 2012 11:04pm EST
White Collar
This week's White Collar brings back some absent characters, introduces some new ones, and mixes them together to create a lackluster outing.

Elizabeth's birthday is coming up, and Peter wants the weekend off "unless someone dies or Neal does something big. Maybe not even if someone dies." He's leaving Diana in charge, even as Diana reveals that she's engaged to her girlfriend Christie. Sounds like everything is going grand, right? Well, until we start talking about a stolen Stradivarius violin...and Neal's now ex-girlfriend Sara Ellis, who thinks her boss Bryan (Bailey Chase) is t...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Neighborhood Watch' (3.13)

January 31st, 2012 11:02pm EST
White Collar
This just isn't Elizabeth Burke's season.

This week's White Collar has Mrs. Suit overhearing plans for a robbery thanks to a scanner Peter left at home. When nothing materializes, Peter and Neal are skeptical, but (of course) Mozzie is more receptive. He and Elizabeth monitor the scanner until they hear the same voices again...right across the street from the Burke home. The new neighbors are Ben (Matt Bomer's Magic Mike co-star Joe Manganiello) and Rebecca Ryan (former Criminal Minds star Lola Glaudini).

Elizabeth coerces Rebecca into inviting her and Peter over for dinner. Plus, ...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Upper West Side Story' (3.12)

January 24th, 2012 11:03pm EST
White Collar
Oh, White Collar. I love you for your ridiculous charm.

The case of the week sees Neal and Peter approached about potential embezzlement at upper-crust Manhattan Prep. The lead suspect is Andy Woods (Dylan Baker, who's played a bad guy so often we should just assume he's the villain every time he shows up), who's in charge of the school's endowment and may have cartel ties. To check him out, our dynamic duo goes undercover, which leads to plenty of entertaining shenanigans.

Just minutes after their arrival, Neal gets mistaken for a substitute teacher, but rolls with it when he s...

Q&A: 'White Collar' Star Tim DeKay

January 24th, 2012 1:00pm EST
Tim DeKay
There's a whole White Collar promo about Matt Bomer. But it would be criminal to overlook his co-star Tim DeKay, who's equally brilliant and just as important to the show's success.

His character, Special Agent Peter Burke, couldn't be more solid. Peter has a successful job at the FBI and a stable marriage to Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen). The role is a perfect fit for Tim, who's just as reliable as his character. He's got a long list of TV credits to his name, including a recent guest appearance on NBC's Chuck, being one of the good things about Law & Order: Los Angeles, and he'll always...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Checkmate' (3.11)

January 17th, 2012 11:05pm EST
White Collar
White Collar is back, and we answer the question: where is Elizabeth Burke?

"Checkmate" picks up immediately from the midseason finale, with Mrs. Burke in the hands of now very familiar bad guy Matthew Keller (Ross McCall), who wants to exchange her for the hidden treasure. "You could've walked away," Peter tells Neal angrily, and a recalcitrant Neal admits that "I should be paying for it, not Elizabeth."

Yet when Neal brings Peter to the warehouse where the treasure was, he finds that Mozzie has moved all of it on his own. This means that in order to find Elizabeth, our dynamic d...

'Dancing With The Stars' Cast Rumors: Snooki, Kristin Cavallari, More

August 16th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
Dancing with the Stars
There are only 13 days left before the live unveiling of the celebrity cast of Dancing with the Stars airs on ABC August 29. That means that really juicy rumors are coming through the woodworks over who could be shaking their stuff on the dance floor for the 13th season. Here are some of the best:

Snooki, Tiffani Thiessen, and Queen Latifah were all named in the same rumor recently as shoe-ins for spots on the show. However, Queen Latifah officially said through a representative that she wasn't doing the show, putting the rest of the list in doubt. Still, we think Snooki and Tiffani are gr...

'White Collar' 3.06 'Scott Free' Review

July 12th, 2011 10:03pm EDT
White Collar
Deja vu is the theme of this week's White Collar, and it works - though perhaps not as well as it could have.

When the FBI starts tracking another wily con artist, Scott Rivers (Hutch Dano), everything feels a little familiar - but that's the point. For the characters, and for the audience, it's impossible not to hold the mirror up and draw parallels between Scott's present and Neal's past. Things get complicated when there's an attempt on Scott's life early on, making him equal parts criminal and victim. It's a great concept for an episode, one rife with opportunities for characte...

'White Collar' 3.05 'Veiled Threat' Review

July 5th, 2011 10:01pm EDT
White Collar
Hello again, White Collar! Apologies for cheating on you with The Voice, but I'm back now and I'm glad to see you haven't missed me too much. "Veiled Threat" isn't the best episode, but it has glimmers of greatness inside of it.

This week's premise is rife with possibilities: Neal, Peter and Jones go undercover at a bachelor auction to lure in a suspected "black widow" named Selena (played by Madchen Amick, who will always be the spouse from Viva Laughlin to me). While this makes Sara bring up that she and Neal have never been on a "real date," Elizabeth is more amused and tries ...

Who Wore Who Best? Justin Bieber And Tiffani Thiessen Wear Shirts Featuring Each Other

June 24th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber wore the above t-shirt to the MuchMusic awards, ignoring the irony that he was born after Saved by the Bell ended. Still, we have to match him up against Tiffani Thiessen, who retaliated by wearing a shirt featuring - you guessed it - Justin Bieber.

Despite the shirt featuring 80's style, we're going to have to vote for Tiffani Thiessen (the shirt, not the woman). First of all, it features a hot chick wearing suspenders. Second, it doesn't require giant text letting you know who the person on the shirt is - we're looking at you, Bieber shirt!

So, do you agree? Who wore who...

TV On DVD: 'White Collar: Season Two'

June 16th, 2011 5:43pm EDT
White Collar
With White Collar premiering its third season last Tuesday, Fox Home Entertainment released White Collar: Season Two on DVD on the same date. Here's my review.

The Show

I fell in love with White Collar almost right out of the gate. Ever since I saw Matt Bomer in ABC's Traveler, I knew he was going to be a star someday, and the show found a perfect match for him in veteran actor Tim DeKay. There was smart writing that balanced a case of the week with character development and an ongoing mythology, moving along each in equal measures. Great acting serviced well by strong writing - we...

'White Collar' 3.01 'On Guard' Review

June 7th, 2011 10:10pm EDT
White Collar
White Collar was a favorite of mine in its first season and parts of the second, but I have to admit that by the end of season two, the shine had started to come off the show for me. As a result, I became very interested in what season three would be - would the show win me back or would we break up?

The third-season premiere starts off in an awkward but not entirely unexpected place, with Neal and Mozzie trying to make a quick escape from Peter and Diana. Four days earlier, Neal's being polygraphed regarding the events of the second-season finale. (I've been polygraphed; this is...

'White Collar' 2.16 'Under The Radar' Recap and Review

March 9th, 2011 9:46am EST
White Collar
White Collar's second-season finale has everything but the kitchen sink: the return of several prominent guest characters, including the villainous Vincent Adler. His takedown was certainly rewarding, but did it live up to the hype? That depends on how you look at it.

Peter and Neal are strolling through New York, with Neal carrying a box full of fake Rolexes, on their way to the FBI office. Sara is there waiting for them, claiming she's found something big in the ocean - but first, we have to have the obligatory awkward moment between the two of them since they were locking lips a...

Interview: 'White Collar's' Tiffani Thiessen is no Trophy Wife

February 8th, 2011 11:30am EST
White Collar
There's that old saying that behind every man is a good woman. Well, behind dedicated FBI agent Peter Burke is his loyal, smart and successful wife, Elizabeth. The woman behind Mrs. Burke, actress Tiffani Thiessen, sat down with me before tonight's new episode of White Collar to talk about the perks and positives of playing one of the show's versatile and vibrant supporting characters.

I have to say, I've looked forward to talking to you because I've enjoyed your character so much. She is so well-developed and so not what one would expect in her role.

In the twentysome-odd years I’ve...

'White Collar' 2.10 'Burke's Seven' Recap and Review

January 18th, 2011 11:04pm EST
White Collar
White Collar is back to finish out its second season, and it picks up almost right where it left off. After being shot at close range in the midseason finale, Mozzie is rushed to the hospital, with Neal by his bedside once he's out of surgery (following the fastest montage ever). The TV cynic in me knew long ago that he wasn't about to be killed off, but it's still nice to get that addressed immediately, so the audience gets an answer and the story can move forward. After all, imagine what's going on in Neal's head. He's spent the first half of the season upset over Kate's murder, a...

'White Collar' 2.10 'Burke's Seven' Advance Review

January 11th, 2011 5:00pm EST
White-Collar-tv-52.jpg
White Collar left us with a bang - literally, as Mozzie was shot by a man named Julian Larsson (The Dresden Files' Paul Blackthorne). As we resume the show's second season, the normally cool Neal Caffrey is still running hot, knowing the two most important people in his life were targeted by the same conspiracy. Having finally caught Garrett Fowler (Noah Emmerich), he sets his sights on Larsson - and what could be just another "let's move on to the next page of our mythology" episode is an impressive midseason premiere.

Mozzie's fate is handled deftly within the opening minutes; not ...

Don’t pretend you don’t still think about how dreamy Zack Morris was ladies, or how all of you guys loved how much Sam loved sports on Who’s the Boss. I still lie awake at night wondering what Malcolm-Jamal Warner from The Cosby Show is up to these days. Love them or not, the shows we grew up with were a part of our childhood that we will never be able to shake. If you’ve ever wondered what your favorite childhood stars are up to post 80’s fame, we did a little digging and found out for you, are they still acting or did they return to the "normal" life?

We spotted Shannen Doherty looking a bit heavier than usual while holding hands with photographer boyfriend Kurt Iswarienko in New York City over the weekend.

Shannen's one time "Beverly Hills, 90210" friend Tori Spelling recently complained that her former co-stars now "hate" her.

Tori explained, "Jennie (Garth) and I are still friends. (Tiffani Thiessen)...doesn't talk to me anymore. We were all great friends during '90210,' we were friends after '90210' and they all came to my first wedding. All of a sudden I marry Dean and I don't know what happened.

As Season 2 of the popular USA series “White Collar” gets under way, star Tiffani Thiessen is eager to get back to work after being ostensibly absent from the first few episodes of the new season. Thiessen recently had a baby with husband Brady Smith and was unable to make regular appearances in the first half of the season. “A lot of those [scenes] in the first six episodes I shot here in Los Angeles on a studio with a green screen behind me,” says the actress. “I haven’t seen the rest of the cast and I actually leave next week to go back to New York and finish off the season with them, ...
