I'm celebrating my 21st year and I decided that it's going to be my last year with the show. I've been on Days of Our Lives since I was 16 years old, and I have never had more than a two-week vaca...

Happy 40th Birthday Christina Applegate

November 25th, 2011 7:30pm EST
Christina Applegate
Not only is she gorgeous, hilarious and down to Earth - Christina Applegate looks damn good for turning the big 40 today! Best known for playing Kelly Bundy, the dumb blonde, on the FOX sitcom Married...with Children, Christina has surpassed any stereotype she may have earned from that role and turned her career into a very successful one. Growing up in Hollywood with a producer father and an actress mother definitely helped out her career but Christina made a name for herself, independent from her parents. Although she did make her television debut with her mother on Days of Our Lives, her...

Jennifer Aniston
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.

Jennifer Aniston Joining Days Of Our Lives: X17Online was claiming that Jennifer Aniston will be acting with her father John Aniston on the long running Days of our Lives to help the soap opera survive through low ratings.

Verdict: False. A representative for the star says the rumor is false and she has no plans to be on the show. Her father has starred in the series for over 20 years.

Deidre Hall
Emmy-nominated actress Deidre Hall has filed a lawsuit against the president of her internet fan club for "unauthorized exploitation" of her name and image.

The former Days of Our Lives star accuses fan club president Cathleen Paradis, 45, of refusing to give her control of several internet domains Paradis set up while working for the actress before the relationship went sour.

In a federal lawsuit filed on Tuesday, Hall claims Paradis "refused, and continues to refuse to surrender the domain name deidrehall.com and other domain names on behalf of Hall, unless Hall pays her thousands of ...

Angelica Bridges Makes Fake Eating Ice Cream Sexy

Anjelica Bridges
Angelica Bridges celebrated Ben & Jerry's "Free Cone Day" in Las Vegas yesterday and nearly gave onlookers a look at her goods when she posed for photographers.

The former "Days of Our Lives" and "Baywatch" star made news last fall for suing her hockey star ex-husband over allegations he tricked her into signing divorce papers so she couldn't stake a claim to his new sports contract.

Bridges is seeking $14 million in damages, on top of the monthly $18,000 she receives in child support.

The couple, who married in 2002, has two children, daughters Valentina Raine and Scarlett Skye.

Alana Curry In The Worst Photoshoot Ever

February 24th, 2010 5:00pm EST
Alana-Curry-022410s1
Alana Curry recently did a photoshoot in a pink & gray tube-top bikini, showing off her fantastic bod. But that bikini segment of her recent photoshoot was only the beginning. Here she is again, this time in what we're calling the 'worst photoshoot ever'.

In part two, Alana strikes a few very uncomfortable looking poses down a cramped looking alley in your basic, summery window-shopping attire.

And seriously, what's with the side ponytail? Do women still do that? We thought that went out at midnight on January 1, 1985 - with the rest of 1984. She needs to hook up with Hayden Panettiere an...

Who The Hell Is Alana Curry & Why Does She Think She's A Sex Symbol?

Alana Curry
Alana Curry shows her body off in new promotional photos featuring an 80s-like fuchsia and gray bikini. Who is Alana exactly? Well, she played a waitress on "Days Of Our Lives" for a while and has done "numerous commercials" and TV appearances, according to her official website. See more photos after the jump!

Well, we have to give Alana credit for trying. You have to do something to stand out in Hollywood. And appearing in provocative photos is one way to do it (or at least try!)

Her film credits include a small role in 2003's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (like, a really small...

Macy's 2009 Thanksgiving Day Parade: Meh

November 28th, 2009 8:51am EST
Macy
So, in the spirit of Turkey Day and all that is holy in the holiday season traditions, I got up too early to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade along with an equally weary Liz Lewis. This year was pretty run of the mill.

Like all years past, NBC rolled in with semi truck filled with shameless plugs, an overload of NBC promotions, and puns corny enough to even make younger kids grimace. The route changed, to the chagrin of all those with pricey Broadway real estate who look forward to this fall classic, and the cast of Glee was glaringly absent. With NBC bringing out some real...

Celebrity Offspring That Have Become Successful

Q&A: New '90210' Hottie Trevor Donovan Talks About The Upcoming Season

Trevor Donovan
A new man will arrive in the 90210 zip code on the show's season premiere September 8 on the CW. Trevor Donovan will join the cast as student Teddy Montgomery. Donovan's character is said to be the JFK Jr., all-American type of guy.

"He is the quintessential all American gold boy… but is not your stereotypical rich kid," said Donovan, who adds that Teddy is partially a mix between the characters Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Dylan (Luke Perry) from the original Beverly Hills, 90210 and partially a completely new character type for the show.

Some Recent TV Spinoff Successes And Failures

May 12th, 2009 11:29am EDT
Boston Legal
With an eagerly anticipated Gossip Girl spinoff in the offing, as well as a number of other spinoffs and remakes, the 2009-2010 television fall schedule feels awfully familiar. Unfortunately, there's no rhyme or reason as to whether these spinoffs actually fly. For every Frasier, there is a Joey. The winners are shows that garnered critical acclaim and/or cult status. The losers are shows that destroyed the integrity of beloved characters and were generally poorly written and conceived.

Spotlight On Reality Stars Who Want To Be Legitimate Actors...But Fail

Recent photos snapped on the set of the 2009 Demi Moore/David Duchovny film "The Joneses" features some reality stars. These photos show two very big reality television personalities playing even bigger versions of themselves to match the upgrade in screen size: Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield from Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

"The Joneses" is about a family who moves into a prestigious community only to peddle very specific products. They are an affluent, powerful, popular family, so everyone else wants to follow their lead and "keep up with the Joneses," hence the titl...

'30 Rock' Recap: 'The One With The Cast Of Night Court'

November 14th, 2008 10:02am EST
30 Rock
Stealing a plot that must feel awfully familiar to guest star Jennifer Aniston, 30 Rock takes a turn for the dangerously psychotic (instead of the usual simple, funny psychotic antics of Tracy and Jenna) in its third episode for the season of the same number with a stalker storyline.

Aniston plays Claire, Liz' ex-roommate from Chicago who is just a little bit crazy but pretty enough that not many seem to notice. Recently How I Met Your Mother took a stab (no pun intended) at this phenomenon with Barney Stinson's Mendoza Diagonal analogy, but it was perhaps first introduced to mainstre...

A Look At The Influence of 'Days Of Our Lives' On Recent Pop Culture

Days Of Our Lives
Back in 2004 a documentary-- not completely unlike Trekkies but for the soap opera crowd-- began filming in Los Angeles, interviewing the stars and fans alike of Days of our Lives. In honor of the fortieth anniversary of the show being on air (as well as the producer/director's college thesis project), this documentary sought to look deep into the psyches of the people who dedicated the majority of their lives to following this show. At an hour a day, five days a week, starting at a time before TiVo, it was true dedication to devote one's interest to such a show. What was found, though, ...

'The Hills': A Lo Down Dirty Shame

May 6th, 2008 9:07am EDT
The Hills
Lo, Lo, Lo. Maybe it was because Lo and LC were always up against the delightfully devious Kristin on Laguna Beach, but Lo always seemed as sweet as cinnamon and sugar toast. She was the most precious voice of reason, like having Dr. Phil wrapped up in the persona of petite, southern California beach bunny.

With the advent of "Shifty Lo," however, all sense of nostalgia has gone by the wayside. The theme for this mini-season of The Hills seems to be the constant shifting of alliances between friends and would-be family, but ironically, after all of these wild swings, no relationsh...

Millions of viewers tune in daily to watch the drama unfold on their favorite soap operas. It also doesn't hurt that many of the male soap stars are some of the sexiest people on television.

'Melrose Place': Where Are They Now?

Melrose Place
Sixteen years ago we were first introduced to Melrose Place, an innocent (at least it started that way) spin-off of Beverly Hills, 90210 that took place in a West Hollywood apartment complex. I know as an 8-year-old boy I was excited to see what the lives of 20-something people would be like. I assumed lots of swimming and talking about art. I was wrong, so very very wrong. Seeing as the show ended its run almost 10 years ago we should look back and see just where those over-sexed and off-kilter roommates have gone. Now I can relate to what the show was about!

'Dance War's' Country Night Is As Authentic As The Chinese Food At Panda Express

Taylor Swift
Magic isn't about making things actually disappear, but it is about the art of distraction. "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann" is not about dance but about the illusion of dance. "Dance War" is not an actual competition, but the illusion of a competition. We know this because ABC is slowly turning this song and dance show into a showcase for... anything.

A new season of "The Bachelor" arrives in March? Throw Matt Grant on, the smarmy British single of the upcoming season. As a side note, can ABC groom their reality stars a little better? When Drew Lachey asked Matt to tell him...

What '24' Needs For Season Seven To Rock

December 28th, 2007 10:27am EST
24
For reasons that defy logic, the powers that be from 24 have decided to inform fans of a huge spoiler prior to the new season (see clip below.) Most likely they did this in an effort to bring back the pissed-off fans (and there are many) for the seventh season.

Producers will most likely use this as a focal point of their ad campaign for the new season, which looks like it will start in the fall (we hope), so we have to embrace this idea. It can go either way. The first part of this article does not give any info about the trailer so it is safe to read for those who still want to be k...
