As expected and not surprisingly, Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and his wife Rebecca Gayheart have filed a lawsuit against Gawker.com and a journalist for posting a private home video of the couple walking around nude in their apartment and sharing porn names in a bubble bath.

Zac Efron: The Next Leonardo DiCaprio Or Corey Feldman?

May 14th, 2009 9:30am EDT
Zac Efron
In theory, being a teen heartthrob seems like a pretty sweet gig. They never have to wait for tables at restaurants, they have throngs of adoring fans, and they get to date gorgeous models and actresses. Basically, they are given a first class ticket for life, which means more leg room, no middle seats, and cashews instead of peanuts.

But as appetizing as all that sounds, teen heartthrobdom isn't all that it's cracked up to be. It can be a dicey business that often comes at a hefty price because it doesn't guarantee that the ensuing path will be paved quite as goldenly as the yellow b...

Is There Any Reality Left In Reality TV?

February 17th, 2009 9:02am EST
The Bachelor
Writers and producers from many shows including "Laguna Beach," "The Bachelor," and, the granddaddy of them all, "The Real World," have admitted that their shows are either partially scripted and/or edited to manufacture storylines. And even before they admitted it, most of us knew for a long time that the term "reality TV" was kind of an oxymoron.

But remember when the first season of "The Real World" premiered 17 years ago? Some of you who are fans of the show now may have still been in diapers back then, but hopefully you've had an opportunity to see its beginnings. If you have, yo...

Spotlight On Reality Stars Who Want To Be Legitimate Actors...But Fail

Recent photos snapped on the set of the 2009 Demi Moore/David Duchovny film "The Joneses" features some reality stars. These photos show two very big reality television personalities playing even bigger versions of themselves to match the upgrade in screen size: Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield from Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

"The Joneses" is about a family who moves into a prestigious community only to peddle very specific products. They are an affluent, powerful, popular family, so everyone else wants to follow their lead and "keep up with the Joneses," hence the titl...

Celebrity Offspring: Five Worth Watching

September 30th, 2008 10:27am EDT
Will & Jaden Smith
Not all relatives should show up at the same office everyday, and not everyone wants to get into the family business. Yet when the perks include fame, big paychecks, and glamorous premieres, the choice seems a little easier to make.

And since nepotism in Hollywood is as classic a tale as Citizen Kane, it’s no surprise that lots of Tinseltown legacies are following in the footsteps of such other celebrity offspring as Michael Douglas, Jane Fonda, and Liza Minnelli.

Here are five we think are worth watching...

Slideshow: From Porn To Pop Culture Icons

Jenna Jameson
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...

'Beverly Hills, 90210': Where Are They Now?

Beverly Hills, 90210
Rob Thomas (Dawson's Creek, Veronica Mars) is helming a "Beverly Hills, 90210" spinoff, which like the original will revolve around a family with two teenagers who move from the Midwest to Beverly Hills. There's no word on whether any of the original cast will appear.

Aaron Spelling sure knew what the public favored when he launched the original series back in 1990. The show aired until 2000, completing 10 seasons.

The show began when twins Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Brenda (Shannen Doherty) Walsh moved from Minnesota to California. After 10 seasons, the series ended with the...

20 Years Later: New Kids On The Block

March 10th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
New Kids On The Block
It's hard to imagine that it's been 20 years since I wore my New Kids On The Block t-shirt holding a pink and black pocket rocker, which was playing "Hanging Tough" of course, in one hand and a sign saying "I hart you Jordan! Merry me!" in the other. Yes, I spelled it that way I was five years old. Even back then I was able to "get on the floor and do the new kids dance" at the outdoor venue in Tinley Park for my very first concert to see the best boyband EVER!

For those who don't remember or weren't born yet, New Kids on the Block was one of the most popular boybands to hit the music ...

'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew': One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

Without The Office or 30 Rock to get me through these cold Thursday nights, I’ve had to turn to VHI to fill my TV watching needs (because God forbid I actually, you know, pick up a book or something). Thankfully they have put the kibosh on "I Love the 80's" reruns. I like that show just as much as the next person, but how many times can I see Lea Thompson wax nostalgic about Hyper Color t-shirts? (Answer: 11).

Now, instead of filling the air waves with the comedic stylings of Rick Springfield, comically riffing on Ms. Pac Man, we get celebrities in rehab! Except they aren’t exactly ce...

20 Years Later: Where Are The Stars Of 'Full House' & 'The Wonder Years?'

John Stamos
It's hard to imagine that it's been 20 years since we were first introduced to the Tanner family, Winnie Cooper and Kevin Arnold. What happened to some of our favorite prime time stars two decades after they charmed us on the small screen?

Full House (1987-1995)

"Full House" was a show about talk show host Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) who was raising his three girls with his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) and his best friend Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) after his wife Pam is killed by a drunk driver. You laughed, you cried and you learned a lesson all in one episode.

80's TV Stars: Where Are They Now?

Danica McKellar
Nothing makes you feel older than when you realize that 1987 was 20 years ago. Those of us born and/or raised in the 1980s remember a time of outrageous fashion, outrageous music, and most of all, outrageous television.

But most of us have also made the transition from the 1980s to the present day with relative ease - we've put away our scrunchies, retired our parachute pants, cut out our shoulder pads, and we've moved onwards and upwards (into the stylized 00s).

But what about the television stars we love and hate? Did they ever manage to leave it all behind? Starpulse is sick ...
