Cast of Hawaii Five-0
For someone as obsessed with television as I am, the prospect of four months without new episodes of my shows is a maddening one. Thankfully, mid-July is finally upon us, and I can take comfort in the knowledge that most television shows have began production for the 2011-2012 season. To honor this momentous occasion, I will be detailing my wishes upcoming seasons of my beloved shows. I will do a different show every week, so stay tuned for your favorites and feel free to chime in too. First up: arguably the best rookie show of last season, CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0.”

'Bridesmaids' Scene Stealer: Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy
As a shameless lover of entertainment, there are certain actors and musicians I passionately support through the good, the bad, and the downright awful. I followed Justin Timberlake from ‘N Sync’s “I Want You Back” to his solo smash, “SexyBack.” And I’ve happily followed the brilliant Melissa McCarthy from The WB’s “Gilmore Girls” to ABC’s “Samantha Who?” and most recently to the silver screen in Bridesmaids. After her scene-stealing performance in this laugh-til-you-cry wedding comedy, I am confident her fanbase will grow exponentially.

I was first turned onto McCarthy’s whimsical br...

Sharon Stone's provocative leg-crossing scene in "Basic Instinct" has topped a new poll to find the most paused movie moments.

The actress reveals she isn't wearing any underwear beneath her short skirt as she uncrosses her legs while being interrogated by cops in the 1992 thriller - a scene which was frozen by more than a third of fans in a poll by

The X-rated moment put Stone ahead of runner-up Jennifer Lopez, who bared her butt in 2010 comedy "The Back-Up Plan," while third place went to a blooper in 1977 hit "Star Wars," when a Stormtrooper hits his head on a ceiling.

Jennifer Lopez Continues World Domination At Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Celebration

Won't Jennifer Lopez be disappointed if "The Back-Up Plan" bombs at the box office? After all, she's been saturating the media with various appearances all week to pimp out her new film.

AP only gives her film one and a half stars out of four. The plot is thin and director Alan Poul "hits every obvious note, complete with pratfalls, pregnancy cliches and cheesy pop-music cues that signal the characters' emotions in painfully literal fashion."

Maybe Jennifer will disappear for a while again after this one. We're getting a little tired of how phenomenally good she's been looking lately, any...

Jennifer Lopez: The Highs And J. Lows

Jennifer Lopez began her post-babies comeback late last year, with “Louboutins,” a dance-pop ode to shoes that didn’t exactly set the world on its heels - or kick her music career back into high gear for that matter. Luckily, she has “The Back-up Plan,” a romantic-comedy that hits theatres this Friday.

Lopez undoubtedly hopes that returning to the big screen in a genre where she’s been successful in the past will re-establish her as a major movie star and reignite her star power. After all, for the first half of the decade, two Jennifers pretty much dominated celebrity news headlines. Ani...

Heidi Klum Wears Emilio's 'Project Runway' Dress On The Red Carpet - Hot Or Not?

Heidi Klum
One of this season's "Project Runway" contestants, Emilio Sosa, designed Heidi Klum's latest red carpet look. At the L.A. premiere of "The Back-Up Plan" last night, Heidi wore a shorter version of his dress (we know she likes showing off her legs). What great timing considering the Runway finale airs tonight.

For the "Runway" challenge, designers had to create a dress that would be worn by a celebrity at a future red carpet event. It was later revealed that Heidi was the mystery celebrity.

Two winners were actually named in the April 1 episode. Heidi decided to wear Emilio's slinky, str...

Q&A: Jennifer Lopez Discusses Her Personal Life & Latest Movie 'The Back-Up Plan'

Jennifer Lopez the back-up plan
Jennifer Lopez hasn’t always been this revealing. During the height of the J-Lo media frenzy, Lopez would never answer questions about her personal life. Now she’s a married mother of twins and that was all fair game for discussion at a press conference for her new movie, The Back-up Plan.

The movie kind of relates to her personal life. She plays Zoe, a career woman who wants to have kids, but only seems to meet losers. So she goes the sperm bank route, only to meet the man of her dreams, Stan (Alex O’Loughlin), once she’s already pregnant… with twins. Along the way, hormonal changes make ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies- 'The Losers,' 'The Back-Up Plan,' & More

The backup Plan
I saw three movies that opened theaters last week, each of which I enjoyed in a different way. If you haven’t checked it out yet, definitely take a peek at my review of “Kick-Ass” which received my highest praise. Since this week is rather light at the box office, go see “Kick-Ass” if you have not already.

The sports drama “The Perfect Game” about a Mexican baseball team that becomes the first non-American team to compete in the Little League World Series is quite charming. It comes off as a mixture of “The Mighty Ducks,” “The Bad News Bears,” and “Angels in the Outfield.” While it doe...

Jennifer Lopez Bans Marc Anthony From Watching Sex Scenes

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez has banned husband Marc Anthony from watching her sex scenes in new movie The Back-Up Plan - because she doesn't want him to see her seduce another man.

The singer/actress stars alongside Alex O'Loughlin as a single woman who conceives twins through artificial insemination, and later falls in love. The romantic comedy features a saucy scene, which sees Lopez strip and embrace O'Loughlin on a kitchen table.

However, the star is refusing to let Anthony watch the steamy footage, because she doesn't want to upset him.

She says, "I didn't want to torture the poor guy. He sho...

Jennifer Lopez: 'I Have So Much Respect For Single Moms'

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez was really acting in her new movie "The Back-Up Plan" because she could never imagine herself as a single mom.

The actress/singer plays an unlucky-in-love single, who decides to have a child alone - and then falls for Mr. Right - in the romantic comedy.

She admits playing a mom-to-be was easy because she could still remember what it was like to be pregnant in real life, but she couldn't imagine having kids without a partner, like her character.

She tells WENN, "If I hadn't met (husband) Marc (Anthony) I wouldn't have kids. It's just too hard. I have so much respect for sin...
