'Episodes' Advance Review: Making Fun Of The Hand That Feeds You

January 5th, 2011 10:23am EST
My week of Showtime previews continues with a look at Episodes, the second new series that the network will debut on January 9 (the first being Shameless). Episodes focuses on a British couple named Beverly and Sean (Green Wing costars Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan) who experience culture shock when their successful UK television series is adapted for an American audience. As a fan of many British shows, several of which have been butchered in American translation - in fact, Episodes rings amusingly like the story of the Brit sitcom Coupling - I have to say this is a neat and probably ...

Celebrities have the reputation of being talented, gorgeous, rich and famous. But if they weren't stars, what would they be doing?

Here are a few of our favorite celebrities and their Alma Maters.

She tells Shape magazine, "My feelings were so hurt by that story; I ended up bingeing on an entire cake. Afterward, I actually tried to throw it all up, but thankfully I couldn't do it. It made me think, 'I can't go down this road.' I had seen so many performers develop eating disord...

Christina Hendricks May Be Hot, But In Hollywood Thin Remains In

April 28th, 2010 10:08am EDT
Christina Hendricks vs Hollipops
Hollywood’s IT girl of the moment is Christina Hendricks, the voluptuous redhead who plays über-secretary Joan Harris on AMC’s Mad Men. Hendricks (for those of you not paying attention) is a throwback to an era of Jayne Mansfield and Russ Meyer, the antithesis of the Size 0 pretzel sticks dominating the tube and screen. But with Hendricks in the running for Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, could she signal a new standard of beauty in Hollywood?

Don’t hold your breath.

This is not to say that Christina Hendricks isn’t hot. Oh, she most undoubtedly is. But part of the allure of the actress li...

Oh, Renee Zellweger. Did you accidentally get gum in your hair and have to cut it all off? The little boy look is not flattering at all.

The actress showed up at New York City's Tribeca Film Festival yesterday in a black ballerina-like dress, which really isn't very interesting either. For someone so cute, you really know how to make yourself look plain.

Perhaps she's reacting to comments recently made by her ex-husband Kenny Chesney. Earlier this month he basically told Oprah Winfrey that he chose his career over Renee.
