July 28th, 2010 8:28am EDT
Christina Applegate
Christina Applegate is suffering during her first pregnancy - the actress has endured awful morning sickness and is experiencing mood swings which turn her into an "insane monster".

The Samantha Who? star revealed earlier this month she is expecting a baby with her fiancé, Dutch musician Martyn Lenoble. The 38 year old appeared on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! sporting a massive baby bump, which she later showed was a sweatshirt under her dress - and she used the interview to open up about her pregnancy so far.

Applegate explained, "I feel okay now. Oh god, I'm like text book right now -...

Christina Applegate is expecting a baby with her fiance, Dutch musician Martyn Lenoble - almost two years after beating cancer.

Applegate, 38, dated 41-year-old Lenoble, a bass player and founding member of Porno for Pyros, for two years before becoming engaged on Valentine's Day - and now the couple is preparing to start a family.

A date has yet to be set for the wedding, her rep tells People.com.

It's the second marriage for both. Applegate divorced first husband, actor Johnathon Schaech, in 2007.

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.

"Parenthood," based on the 1989 movie of the same name, is an hour-long dramedy featuring an ensemble cast led by Peter Krause of "Six Feet Under" and to a lesser extent "Dirty Sexy Money" fame and Lauren Graham in her first regular TV role since "Gilmore Girls" ended its seven year run in 2007.

Emmy Nomination Surprises, Snubs And Shouldn't Be Nominated

July 16th, 2009 3:17pm EDT
How I Met Your Mother
To paraphrase Ned Flanders, apparently an Emmy nomination is easier to get than an acceptance letter from Arizona State.

This morning, Emmy tried to one-up Oscar's new rule of ten by including six nominees in the acting categories and a whopping seven in the series categories. Yes, if you made a television series this year, or appeared on one, chances are you heard your name called in North Hollywood this morning.

With so many nominess, it seems impossible that any deserving performances or series were left out. Right? Sadly, no. And, of course, there are plenty of nominees who sh...

'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

March 7th, 2009 11:35am EST
Arrested Development
The family that chicken dances together, stays together. With the February 24 announcement that Michael Cera - the lone holdout - had finally signed on for the long-rumored Arrested Development movie, message boards went bonkers for Bluth bananas.

Cera is easily the most successful and visible post-Bluth. With SuperBad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Sundance darling Paper Heart, this kid has perfected the tentatively awkward comedic timing that made you root for the love story of George Michael and his cousin Maeby.

Where have the Bluths been since we last laughed a...

Being Green Is Great, But Is Hollywood Taking Recycling Too Far?

Jerry Oconnell
Is there such a thing as a show-a-holic? A glimpse at the TV guide shows certain names keep cropping up time and time again attached to new shows. Could certain actors be addicted to starring on TV? And will they do anything to keep working whether the show is a quality one or not?

Isn't addiction classified as doing something to the point of excess, even after the point at which the person knows it's not healthy for them anymore? If the answer is yes then there are a few actors working today who show signs of needing serious career detox and rehab.

Ah, the Emmys, the most entertaining awards show and often the most frustrating. Why is it so frustrating? Because the voters get it wrong. They get the winners wrong more often than casual sports bettors. In fact, they get it so wrong that predicting the winners is often a fool's errand since it's impossible to determine what will strike the Academy's fancy as the reasons for their choices are as mystifying as the results.

Luckily, Starpulse.com has one such fool. So it's time for a round of everybody's favorite game: Who Will Win and Who Should Win?

Must See (Or At Least Must TiVo) New Comedies This Fall Season

August 25th, 2008 9:01am EDT
Kath & Kim
With the new fall season just around the corner (where did the summer go?), there are a slew of new comedies on the horizon that network marketing execs want you to believe are the most revolutionary things since the invention of color television.

Due to the recent writers' strike, a good chunk of these programs got pushed through to series without networks even seeing a pilot episode. So how can viewers weed through them to find the deep belly laughs amid piles of mere canned chuckles? That's where we come in. Here we break it down night by night and highlight what is worth a try ...

The Demise of the Black Sitcom

The Bernie Mac Show
African Americans have come a long way in a relatively short time in the entertainment industry. From Hattie McDaniel becoming the first black actor to win an Academy Award in 1939 to the trailblazing success of Sidney Poitier in the 1960s, African Americans have consistently broken through show business barriers on the march towards equality. As Frederick Douglass once said, "Without struggle, there is no progress."

Over the years, progress was certainly made in Hollywood, especially on the small screen. In fact, the year 1990 saw a great influx of black talent on television. That...

NBC got a jump start on the other broadcast networks with its "in-front" presentation last month, which occurred a full six weeks before the traditional upfront period. At that time NBC, mired in last place amongst the Big Four (poor CW barely registers as a blip and therefore does not count), presented a bold, dynamic and risky 2008-09 year-round schedule.

In the weeks that followed, there was naturally some speculation as to whether or not the other networks would follow NBC's lead and change the rules of the game. ABC, which unveiled its 2008-09 plans yesterday, was the first to...
