David Arquette avoided a homeless man like the plague Thursday night on his way to Voyeur nightclub in L.A.

The "Scream 4" star looked like he was in a quite a hurry and unwilling to help out a "starving artist" looking for pretty much anything.

David recently let on that he's been taking sewing lessons to improve his skills making clothes. The actor owns his own clothing line, "Propr," with rocker Ben Harper and wants to take designing to the next level by honing his skills with a needle and thread.

He says, "It's a little worrying that I'm going into Jo-Ann (fabric store) and geeking o...

Parenthood
Throughout the Olympics, NBC has been heavily promoting their new show "Parenthood," which airs its first episode on March 2 at 10/9c. This premiere marks a return to form for the network (filling holes left by the Jay Leno mess) and the return of several familiar faces to primetime.

New Fall TV: Keep It Or Kill It

October 21st, 2009 10:41am EDT
fall tv keep or kill
It's that time of year. You've checked out the new shows and by now you know if you love them or hate them. Networks are either ordering additional episodes of their fledgling series or quietly letting them burn off until nobody notices they are gone. And some networks stayed cautiously conservative by looking back to previous television icons and failing miserably (we are talking to you, NBC).

Check out the crop of new series and whether we think they should stay on the air or be put out of their misery. Let us know if you agree!

Years ago it was unthinkable for a porn star to be taken seriously in mainstream Hollywood or to be recognized outside of their inner circles. Times have changed. Many porn stars have gone mainstream and become a part of pop culture. Whether it's because they're dating someone famous or appearing on a VH1 reality show, the following adult stars have made names for themselves outside of pornography:

Perhaps one of the most recognizable faces of porn is Jenna Jameson. The winner of over 20 adult film awards, she also founded a pornographic entertainment company. She broke into the m...

True Hollywood BFFs

April 3rd, 2008 1:12pm EDT
Penelope Cruz & Salma Hayek
A best friend forever (BFF) is a person whom you know really well and regard with affection and trust. In Hollywood, a best friend is often a famous pal whom you party with so you can gain popularity and get more press. In most cases, people go to clubs together just to be seen and to create hype.

Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan probably did not have heart-to-heart talks on Sunday nights while drinking wine and watching Desperate Housewives. But there are a few cases in which people really do like each other and hang out because they are in fact best friends!

'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!
