Melissa Gilbert's Tax Woes: Former 'Little House On The Prairie'
Former "Little House on the Prairie" star Melissa Gilbert should really pay her taxes. According to The Detroit News, the actress owes the IRS over $360,000! And it's not the first time the former child actress has been hit hard by the government- In the past two years, the state of California has also hit her up for more than $100,000 worth of unpaid taxes.

According to Gilbert, the whopping sum grew from several different factors- a struggling economy, a struggling career, and a costly divorce from ex-husband Bruce Boxleitner.

Stephen Collins
Actor Stephen Collins has confessed to molesting three underage girls between 1973 and 1994 in an essay he penned for People magazine.

An audio recording believed to contain the former 7th Heaven star admitting to his crimes surfaced online back in October.

Actor Stephen Collins, who has been losing jobs left and right since admitting on tape that he sexually molested at least three young girls over a decade ago, is making headlines again because he starred in an 11-minute short film by director Jeff Wolfe ("Revolution") earlier this year -- as a pedophile priest.

The short, titled "Penance," was screened during the Catalina Film Festival last month, just days before the audio tape surfaced on TMZ.com.

Collins -- in a twist of irony -- became a household name thanks to his role as Reverend Eric Camden on hit TV series "7th Heaven." He is cur...

Actors Who Have Transitioned From TV To Film

8/25/2009 10:00am EDT
Jennifer Garner
For some actors, it is hard to make the crucial transition into film as a television star. Especially if you are typecast as a certain character and most people can't think of you as anyone else (for example, Matt LeBlanc as Joey on Friends). Television actors put their careers on the line when they leave their steady jobs to branch out into the film world, and they either make it or they don't. Here are the top television stars who managed to hold their own in the film world.

Awesome But Dead: Five Great TV Shows That Were Cancelled Undeservedly

9/23/2008 9:00am EDT
Everyone can think of one off the top of their head: A TV show that got the axe way too soon. Actually, there is at least one show per season that "died before its time" - because it was killed by heartless TV executives. Here, we honour five shows that suffered an especially gruesome and undeserved death.

Profit (1996), 4 episodes aired

The best show you have probably never heard of. Also, it is the most cancelled of all cancelled shows, taken off the air by FOX after only four episodes in 1996, even though eight had been completed (and were later released on DVD).

It is a widely accepted tenet in pop music that every generation needs its own young stars to scream for. So is it really surprising that a new group of fresh-faced young men have begun to make a footprint on the pop landscape? Even old-timers New Kids on the Block have reunited more than a decade after 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys ruled the charts. Clearly the members of NKOTB recognized that few people (even those of us old enough to own "Hangin' Tough" on vinyl), can resist the simple pleasure of five talented, upbeat guys singing and dancing in unison. It's been true since the Jackson 5 ...

Spotlight On Movies That Became Musicals

8/28/2008 10:30am EDT
The Little Mermaid
Fans of movie musicals know that most of their favorites, like "Grease," "West Side Story," "The Sound of Music," and "Oklahoma!" were adapted from popular Broadway plays. However, the trend in recent years has been to flip that formula around by taking a big-screen hit and trying to turn it into a small-stage sensation.

Disney has had great success with its theatrical adaptations, starting in 1994 with the critically-acclaimed "Beauty and the Beast." The hits kept coming with stage productions of "The Lion King," "Mary Poppins," and, most recently, "The Little Mermaid."
