Celebrity hairstylist Marcia Hamilton created Jada Pinkett-Smith's sizzling summer tresses for the August cover of Redbook Magazine. Here is how Marcia styled Mrs. Smith in three, easy steps:

1. To begin, blow out hair out using a large boar bristle round brush. Make sure to prep hair before drying. I used a moisture rich leave in conditioner and a couple drops of an oil.

2. Next, set hair with a large barrel curling iron working from the bottom to the top. Take large sections, no bigger than the size of your iron. Twist hair, then wrap it around the iron, close and hold for a few...

Jada Pinkett-Smith doubts she will ever star in and produce a TV show or movie again, because working double duty on her medical drama HawthoRNe is proving to be a "very difficult" task.

The series has become a small screen hit since premiering last year and HawthoRNe has now been picked up for a third season, which will air next June.

But the actress wife of Will Smith admits she's feeling the strain of serving as the star and producer of the show - and she will be thinking twice the next time she agrees to sign up for the heavy workload.

She says, "I think this is the last time you wil...

Pre-Season 2009 TV Report Card: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Since CNN has such a blast creating a report card to track the Presidency, we decided to have some fun with television. Which networks come out strong and which ones need to do better homework?



The Good: The dramas are what keep us coming back to ABC. Grey's Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, FlashForward, and V are worth looking forward to. The one comedy that stands out and may hold itself against NBC's stellar comedies, Modern Family, is worth a few episodes past the pilot.

The Bad: Dancing With The Stars is extremely popular, however sometimes too much of a ...
