Jared Padalecki Appeals For Hospital Donations Instead Of Baby Gifts

Jared Padalecki
Supernatural star Jared Padalecki has been left overwhelmed after fans donated $25,000 to a children's charity in lieu of buying the dad-to-be baby presents.

The actor's wife and former co-star Genevieve is preparing to give birth to their first child, a boy, next month.

Following their happy announcement, Padalecki asked his followers to give money to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital instead of buying the couple gifts, telling them, "Lets make the world a brighter place for those not as fortunate."

Fans set up an online fundraising page, and Padalecki is stunned by the news that...

'Supernatural' 7.15 Recap: Sam Boards The Crazy Train

February 18th, 2012 8:38am EST

I took last week off not only because of my Sammy-sized clown phobia, but because I was forced into celebrating a milestone birthday. I’m back, though, significantly older than I was before. I did watch “Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magical Menagerie” in the safety of a psychiatrist’s office, and I thought that what the episode lacked in action on the front end, it made up the crackish humor “Supernatural” is known for, and that’s an episode after my own heart.

After watching “Repo Man,” which welcomed back one of my favorite characters in the devil himself, and unearthed some startlingly ugly...

'Supernatural' 7.13 Recap: Daddy Dearest

February 4th, 2012 8:29am EST

As “Supernatural” fans, I’m sure we’ve all faced the feat that is explaining the show to friends we’re trying to lure to the dark side. It was difficult in the first season, so add a few dozen deaths of the main characters, one missing soul, an Apocalypse and an one reverently stored trench coat, and it’s damned near impossible. “Supernatural” is wonderfully and horrifically complicated, just how I like it. So I was taken aback at how the show returned with a straight-forward, simply told episode, especially after the last time-warping extravaganza. “The Slice Girls” was directed by pr...

'Supernatural' 7.12 Recap: Dean Brings Sexy Back To The Future

ackles, padalecki
It’s been a big week for “Supernatural” fans. The little show that could won two People’s Choice Awards (Favorite Network Drama and Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show). Suck it, “Vampire Diaries!” TVLine.com also reported that—SPOILER ALERT— “Supernatural” staple Jim Beaver will eventually return, and my favorite guest star, Mark Pellegrino will be reprising his fabulously evil turn as Lucifer in the episode 15. So this week's episode felt like icing on a very awesome pop cult cake.

“Time After Time” was artfully pieced together in a non-linear manner, but I’m going to do my best to break...

Katy Perry & Emma Stone Were Big Winners At 2012 People's Choice Awards

January 12th, 2012 8:24am EST
Emma Stone
It was a huge night for Katy Perry at the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday - even though the pop star's marriage break-up prevented her from attending.

The I Kissed a Girl star pulled out of the event earlier this week via a tweet but it was still very much her night as she picked up five awards, including one for her guest spot on TV comedy How I Met Your Mother.

Perry also claimed trophies for Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Song of the Year (E.T.), Favorite Music Video (Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)) and Favorite Tour Headliner.

It was also a great evening for the ...

'Supernatural' 7.11 Recap: What About Bobby?

January 7th, 2012 7:56am EST
Beaver
“Supernatural’s” winter hellatus (as the fans affectionately call it) gave me a lot of time to hypothesize where the show could go from the last moments of “Death’s Door,” where Bobby seemingly headed into the great beyond: Crowley could appear with the last-minute save like the badass King of Hell he is. Castiel could emerge from the waters of the lake, a fully redeemed angel of the Lord, and heal Bobby’s brain. He could've survived but suffered personality-altering brain damage and anemsia. Sam and Dean could have hunter’s funeral, a body burning on the pyre. It's “Supernatural” afte...

10 Presents To Give To Naughty And Nice Celebs

I must confess that I’m known for giving the best Christmas presents. With the big day less than two weeks away, I’m putting on my bedazzled Santa hat and taking over gift-giving duties for 10 celebs who have been naughty and nice this year.

Lindsay Lohan

It’s hard being a fan of an actor as troubled as Lindsay Lohan, who seems to be a magnet for mugshots, poor decisions and merry-go-round trips to the L.A. County Jail. My present to the star currently gracing the cover of Playboy in an awkward, overly airbrushed spread, would be the advice and guidance of a celebrity who have rebounde...

'Supernatural' Recap: Bobby's Final Destination?

December 3rd, 2011 9:08am EST

As a fan of “Supernatural,” there are certain things I expect each week: crass, dark humor, violent deaths, epic monsters, and of course, a hearty helping of brotherly, visceral angst. After 135 episodes, I thought the show was done taking my breath away. And then I curled up on the couch to watch “Supernatural’s” winter finale, “Death’s Door,” and realized that executive producer Sera Gamble and company had found completely new and twisted ways to destroy me. And I love them for it. “Death’s Door” was a wistful, beautifully written and acted exploration of the human spirit, the traged...

'Supernatural' Recap: The Winchesters Ruin Our Thanksgiving Appetites

November 19th, 2011 7:59am EST
padalecki and ackles
Ever since The CW released the description for this week’s episode, I’ve been drooling, more than Dean Winchester approaching the Biggerson’s pie buffet, at the notion of a gore-filled hour of my favorite demon hunters becoming the hunted by a flesh-eating predator that looked like a zombie from “The Walking Dead.” Instead, I had to watch an exposition-heavy episode where one of the best hunters in the world was taken down by a friggin’ sandwich. With Thanksgiving around the corner, I’m quite grateful that Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are so incredibly easy on the eyes, ...

'Supernatural' Recap: Love Potion No. 7

November 12th, 2011 10:25am EST
padalecki
My commitment to my favorite television shows is akin to marriage. I make sacrifices for it (my Friday nights to start); I forgive it when it angers me; I support it through thick and thin, sickness and sweeps. So an episode like “Season 7, Time For A Wedding” is a premise after my own heart: Becky, a spritely, obsessive fan of the prophet Chuck Shurley “Supernatural” book series (and a foil for "Supernatural's" more passionate fans), married Sam Winchester, the man of her dreams. Can you blame her?

The episode began with Dean Winchester flirting with a waitress at a strip club. I ...

'Supernatural' Recap: The Winchesters Dial The Psychic Friends Network

After a heartbroken Sam literally took a long walk off a short pier, I found myself simultaneously rolling my eyes and clutching my pearls at last week’s emotional and manipulative cliffhanger, because nothing good happens when Sam and Dean separate and it was obvious the brothers would reunite. Regardless, I imagined poor Sammy huddled in a hovel of a hotel room while grotesque visions of Lucifer danced through his head. So I was eager for Sam and Dean's quarrel to be resolved with some emo-happy conversations and maybe a shirtless fight in the rain.

While none of that happened, “The ...

'Supernatural' Recap: Double The Winchesters, Half The Fun

I have a love-hate relationship with spoilers. As a television addict who can barely survive the mere seven days between episodes, I covet the irresistible nuggets of coming attractions. As an invested fan, I want to experience the adventure with the characters and be as shocked and awed as the next unspoiled viewer. It’s a pop culture quagmire. I heard about “Slash Fiction’s” awesome premise weeks ago. The episode had a fabulous potential for badassery, gore and the patented fraternal angst that keeps the fangirls swooning after more than 130 episodes. Sadly, “Slash Fiction”—while ent...

Last week’s episode left me unfulfilled as Dean hadn't shared his secret, and instead chose to try to bury his head in the sand and his liver in alcohol. Luckily, for my sanity, “Shut Up, Dr. Phil” was lighthearted and unexpectedly charming, thanks sci-fi staples and “Angel” alums James Marsters (“Hawaii Five-0”) and Charisma Carpenter (“Burn Notice,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”).

The murder of Wendy Goodson, real estate agent, opened the episode. She reassured her client that selling the family home would punish her husband for his infidelities. For Wendy, who had indiscretions of he...

'Supernatural' Recap: The Ghosts Of Hunter's Past

Last week’s episode of “Supernatural” ended with the season’s biggest shocker so far when Dean killed Sam’s first crush—a brain-eating demon with a morals—after his little brother had all but begged him to trust in his judgment that she wouldn’t kill again and let her go.

It was an ugly moment for the often self-destructive Dean Winchester, and it spoke to his frayed mental state. His guilt carried over to this week’s episode that felt like classic “Supernatural” and a love letter to the fans who’ve stuck around for seven crazy seasons. “Defending Your Life” had loads of gore, the Winch...

'Supernatural' Recap: Sam Lets His Freak Flag Fly

When we last left the “Supernatural” universe, Sam and Dean were careening towards the Leviathan-infested hospital via ambulance—Sam was seizing with a head injury, Dean with bloodily broken leg, and Bobby presumed dead.

Slickly directed by series’ star Jensen Ackles, “The Girl Next Door” was thankfully easier on my fangirl heart. It began mere minutes after last week’s cliffhanger with the brothers arriving at Sioux Falls General. Dean, a fighter to the end, tried to climb off the gurney and find his brother. His doctor explained that Sam had “bashed his head quite seriously.” Forge...

The Message From 'The Walking Dead' Premiere - 'Expect More Of Everything With Heightened Suspense'

October 5th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 2
"The Walking Dead" red carpet premiere was filled with juicy tidbits about the season to come, as well as insights into the characters we grew to love. I had the honor of interviewing many of the cast and crew of AMC's hit show (season two premieres Sunday October 16, 9/8 central).

Perhaps the most exciting new development in season two is that the gang, having left Atlanta, will take shelter with Hershel Greene and his family on their farm. The Greenes are also characters in the comic books, so fans of the original series will recognize some familiar faces. The new family means new dynami...

Just in case last week’s episode didn’t completely destroy you, our favorite show returned to scrub your heart over a cheese grater and give your soul a few gut-punches with an episode jam-packed with “Supernatural’s” unique brand of campy special effects and life-ruining angst. “Hello Cruel World” picked up right where the premiere left off: Sam was in a secluded part of the demonic laboratory succumbing to all-too real hallucinations of Lucifer, and Castiel’s vessel was just taken over by those sinister Leviathans that tossed Dean and Bobby around like a couple of hot potatoes.

'Supernatural' Recap: Have Faith That It Will Get Worse

When “Supernatural” first started seven years ago, it was just a show about two brothers with a cool car, saving people and hunting things while they searched for their father. I had no idea that it would nearly double its ratings in the fourth season—thanks to passionate fans and the internet—or that it would snarkily and bravely tackle such enormous themes as religion, God and the true meaning of faith. But season six ended with everyone's favorite angel, Castiel, declaring himself the new God after bingeing on Purgatory’s doomed souls with as much gusto as Dean (Jensen Ackles) attacks ...

In "The Secret Circle," a young girl named Cassie moves in with her grandmother after her mother dies. She meets a new group of friends who reveal they are descended from a line of powerful witches--and she is too.

Wishes Of A Television-aholic: 'Supernatural'

August 5th, 2011 11:30am EDT
Padalecki, Ackles
To say that I am a fan of “Supernatural”—The CW thriller with a rabid cult following—would be like saying that the Oprah Winfrey has a little bit of money in the bank. I have ravenously watched it, trolled the internet for spoilers and leaked script pages, and giddily listened to interviews from the writers, producers and actors who speak at conventions like Comic-Con.

I love this show—about two brothers who travel the country in a '67 Chevy Impala and hunt demons and other evil entities while dodging law enforcement—because of its dark humor, gut-wrenching drama, skin-crawling gore, and...

Dangerous Curves Ahead: Five Favorite Voluptuous Celebrities

There are some aspects of the entertainment world that I just don’t like: dangerously aggressive paparazzi, the fact that Jensen Ackles has yet to get an Emmy nomination for his consistently outstanding performance on The CW’s “Supernatural,” and that Hollywood embraces only one waifish, rail thin standard of beauty.

When trolling my favorite entertainment blogs for the latest gossip and red carpet pictures I've noticed that I’m not admiring or mocking the fashion, because I’m overwhelmed by the desire to feed these poor starving starlets a few cheeseburgers. Ultimately, all kinds of bea...

Rebecca Dessertine: Turning 'Supernatural' Into Print

May 25th, 2011 3:36pm EDT

Supernatural fans are probably already paging through the CW show's latest tie-in novel, One Year Gone, which hit bookstores yesterday. I sat down with the author, Rebecca Dessertine - who is also the assistant to series creator Eric Kripke - to talk about the process of penning a tie-in to a cult TV series, and her experiences working on the show.

Let's start at the beginning: how did you get involved with writing one of these novels? Was it your idea or were you approached?

I've worked on the show for almost four years, and I was like, "How does one do one?" and that's sort of h...

I'm Just Not That Into TV Romance

April 12th, 2011 3:59pm EDT
Tiffani Thiessen Tim DeKay
In real life, I'm all about love - but when it comes to TV, the last thing I want is romance.

The reason for the dichotomy? Romantic subplots on television are problematic things in my experience. For a variety of reasons, I've seen them end in disaster more often than not, which has conditioned me to want to avoid the subject altogether. When it comes up for one of my favorite shows, I can't help but cringe.

Before we start this discussion, it's worth noting that there are TV romances that are great. I don't mean to say that they all fail, nor to say that some are right and some are...

Well, Supernatural, looks like you finally had an episode this season that I'm not crazy about!

Now that he's got the Winchesters on his payroll, Crowley isn't shy about sending them off to do his dirty work- this time, bagging the Werewolf Alpha. Dean isn't too crazy over his new job (and Sam couldn't really care less either way), but considering that doing a little messy work for the King of Hell means getting his brother's soul back (and his new boss can give Sam a little taste of Hellfire with a snap of his fingers), he doesn't have a lot of choices.

The two head off to Buffalo, New...
