Q&A: 'The Client List' Star Naturi Naughton: 'There Are So Many Things I Want To Do'

April 8th, 2012 10:00am EDT
Naturi Naughton
Lifetime's The Client List premieres tonight (10 PM ET/PT). You've seen the saucy ads of Jennifer Love Hewitt as Riley Parks, who works at a day spa that has a little something extra going on. But she's not the only one who's a part of the story.

I recently caught up with singer/actress Naturi Naughton, who co-stars with Hewitt in the Lifetime original series, to ask her about her role in the new show, her experience coming off the similarly sexy The Playboy Club, and her other aspirations.

What was the moment when you decided on an entertainment career?

I was pretty young when I decid...

Prison Inmate Confesses Involvement In Notorious B.I.G. Murder Cover-Up

July 7th, 2011 9:21pm EDT
Notorious B.I.G.
A convicted felon has come clean and confessed his involvement as an accessory to the unsolved murder of Notorious B.I.G. - 14 years after the rap icon's death.

The New York hip-hop star, real name Christopher Wallace, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997, at age 24.

Los Angeles police launched an investigation into the case immediately after the murder, but failed to file any charges.

Many conspiracy theories have linked Biggie's death to the East Coast/West Coast rap rivalry involving former Death Row Records mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight and his top artist, T...

25 Top Movies Of 2009 (So Far)

November 26th, 2009 9:44am EST
2009
As with every year there are dozens of great movies but there are even more really bad ones. 2009 will be marked by Quentin Tarantino and Sacha Baron Cohen comebacks along with a bevy of bad movies, highlighted by Megan Fox's performance in Jennifer's Body. There were plenty of good movies and we may have the most fun making fun of the bad and helpless ones, but let's take a look at the best movies of 2009.

Most blockbuster movies are filled with overrated stars (i.e. Will Smith and Tom Cruise) and are seemingly contrived, made only to make money. Thankfully this year there were not as ...

Why Anne Hathaway Is The Perfect Choice To Play Judy Garland

April 27th, 2009 11:06am EDT
Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway looks wonderful in all of her magazine pictures, especially when you consider that she's sporting more weight on her shoulders than most actors in Hollywood today. That's because she will play Judy Garland in a bio-picture based on the controversial book by Gerald Clark.

Hathaway is, of course, perfect for the role. Never mind that she can't quite copy the kind of 4-year-old face that became trademark Garland. That's one of those remarkable traits that can't be duplicated. She still has the pouting lips, the miraculous smile, and the charming singing voice. Her face might...

Movie Spotlight: 'Notorious'

January 16th, 2009 11:20am EST
Notorious
In the last few years, biopics, namely music biopics have become a routine. It's only fitting that Notorious becomes this year's first.

Almost twelve years after his death, Christopher Wallace's story gets the big screen treatment. But the journey from story to screen hasn't been easy. Notorious struggled in development and Training Day's Antoine Fuqua was once attached to direct. Many artists, like Sean Kingston, have made it clear that they had an interest in playing Biggie but none of this was proven as fact. Under the guidance of director George Tillman, Jr. the cast and scri...
