Lisa Edelstein
Former House star Lisa Edelstein has hit back at reports she was fired from the hit medical drama for refusing to take a pay cut, but she doubts she'll be welcomed back for the show's final episodes next year.

The pretty brunette played Hugh Laurie's boss and lover in House and she left unexpectedly this summer amid claims she'd fallen out with TV bosses.

And although her character, Dr. Lisa Cuddy, wasn't properly written out of the show, Edelstein feels sure she won't be invited back.

She tells TV Guide magazine, "Leaving was not something I planned on doing... (but) I was definitely...

Opening up to Cosmopolitan magazine, she says, "We got a lot of hate mail for that. There are racist people out there. We got hate mail that said that someone wanted to cut off m...

Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher has joined Hugh Laurie as the highest paid actor on TV in America, according to a new magazine study.

Both stars will earn $700,000-per-episode for Two And A Half Men and House, respectively, when the two high-rated shows return to TV next month, but Kutcher also reportedly has a deal in place, where he'll profit further if his sitcom is a hit.

Kutcher is replacing fired Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.

However, both actors' 2011/2012 TV salaries won't match Simon Cowell's package when he kicks off his new X Factor show - the study, carried out by TV Guide magazine, su...

Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde has credited her marriage split with making her a "better actress" because the drama has made her more compassionate.

The "House" star filed for divorce from Italian prince Tao Ruspoli in March and, although the breakdown of the nine-year union has hit her hard personally, Wilde insists it has done wonders for her career.

She tells Marie Claire magazine, "It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it's made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don't like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it, and then we feel more compassion for ...

The ad illustrates the dangerous conditions women historically faced around reproductive choices.

'House' Recap - 'Small Sacrifices'

11/23/2010 5:56pm EST
It's been awhile since an opening scene on 'House' actually made me cringe, but this was one of them. The episode starts with a man carrying a cross, obviously doubling the crucifiction of Jesus Christ, and he actually is nailed to the cross. Cue wincing from all of the audience. I thought at first it would be a movie actor or something, but no, the patient of the week is a deeply religious man who crucifies himself since God saved his daughter from cancer. Which means it'll be another episode of House vs. God, and the patient will provide all kinds of handicaps for the doctors as they try ...

Olivia Wilde's competitive eating career was short-lived - she quit after winning a pancake contest.

The "House" star ate 33 pancakes in just 20 minutes when she was a struggling actress in Australia, but had mixed emotions about the big win.

She says, "I entered the contest only because they said a woman could never win, and that's a surefire way to get me to do something. I've always had a huge appetite and (I) don't get full easily, so I guess I was meant to be a competitive eater... But I'd never do it again."

House Office Politics
'House' is back and Cuddy is still pressuring him to get a female doctor on the team. Is it a medical law that he has to hire one, or is she just really interested in women power? In any case, Cuddy hired a girl for him: a third year medical student who has three PhDs. A super genius, Masters, played by Amber Tamblyn. First, let's just get a few questionable things out of the way: medical school is tough, and third year in particularly is considered difficult. How is she supposed to complete her studies and be at House's beck and call? How is she any more qualified than some of the other N...

Last week House traded his massage therapist/former lover for the chance to be more in Cuddy's life and meet her daughter. He might just be regretting it this week! Cuddy asks him to babysit for Rachel when everyone else can't do it, and although he argues and whines, he agrees to do it in the end. This is why he spends most of the episode panicking with Wilson about Rachel and not paying much attention to his actual case. It's about another child who is dying, and instead of two years she's two days old.

The baby has complications right out of birth and we see it happen on a home video th...
