Hi, this Natalie. If I had to narrow down when I became addicted to pop culture and TV, hands down it would be when I tuned into dun-a-nun-a-nunt-na-na Beverly Hills 90210. I became obsessed with all things 90210 and carried that addiction over to other dramas and sitcoms. Parlaying my love of writing and TV watching with a blogging gig at MTV and entertainment and pop culture writer for Regal Magazine. You can follow me @forevergoode

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: So Much For Their Happy Ending *Sniff*
Okay, guys. It’s time to pick ourselves up from the fetal position. Stop rocking…stop rocking. Okay, okay, let’s put a rest to those hateful tweets being sent to Shonda Rhimes, before she sic’s Papa Pope on us. The only way we’ll get through this is together. So, grab the nearest unused hankie “Grey’s Anatomy” fans, and let’s recount the last 24 hours of Derek Shepherd’s life on the “How to Save a Life” episode.

In the first sign this episode would be in the same traumatic vein as the hospital shooting, plane crash, bombing, etc., etc., is the haunting return of five-year-old Meredith, an...

'Grey's' Gives More Clues On Derek's Disappearance (Watch)

April 22nd, 2015 11:15am EDT
'Grey's Anatomy' Preview Video: Derek Plays Hero (Watch)
On the eve of an “episode America will not forget,” Shondaland is releasing more clues into Derek’s disappearance.

After witnessing a car crash en route to his D.C. meeting, Derek pulls car crash victims out of their toppled car, and shepherd’s (see what I did there) them away from the smoldering car before it explodes.

Quick thinking, McDreamy!! And it more than makes up for the non-existent first aid kit in his car. See the full teaser video below.

However, it’s still a mystery why flashing emergency lights were outside Meredith’s house last week. Any theories? Sound off below.

5 Celebrity Look-Alikes That Deserve A Double Take
Imagine finding out your doppelganger—we’re all creepily told to have---is a world renowned famous face. Not so unlikely, neither is the “you look just like…” declaration that is sure to follow you. Like they have for the five listed below that have already made their own mark. Well, at least casting directors know which actors to put on speed dial for a biopic.

Carrie Underwood and Emily Osment

These wide-eyed blondes share more than looks. They’re both born on March 10th—different years though—making them Pisces sisters.

Dan Price and Sam Trammell

'Grey’s Anatomy': What Are The Flashing Lights Outside Of Meredith’s Door?

April 17th, 2015 9:34am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap: Derek Is Found?
“Where is Derek?”

With the blue-eyed resident he locked lips with in D.C.? Nope. Based on next week’s promo, for a non-singing “How to Save a Life” episode, he’s speeding down the highway…until he witnesses a car accident. Being McDreamy he stops to save lives.

But, why are there emergency flashing lights outside of Meredith’s door at the end of this week’s episode? Did Derek get hurt in the crossfire? OMG, Was he sacrificed? Hence, the how to save a life theme. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Let’s stick to what we do know: Webber likes to jam to ‘70s girl group Musique’s “In the Bush”...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Derek Is MIA

April 10th, 2015 9:10am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap 'Crazy Love': Where In The World Is Derek
Shonda Rhimes swapped the ‘Thank God it’s Thursday’ tagline with ‘Throw Back Thursday’ by re-airing the very first Grey’s episode in primetime. Looking back on the pilot it’s wild to think Meredith and Derek got their roller coaster romance started with a one night stand. Fast forward 10 years later and they still keep the on call rooms steamy.

The “Crazy Love” episode starts with Mer and Der getting in some a.m. sex before he jets out to D.C. to hand in his resignation letter and government issued phone. Peace out, Obama. The Shepherds are at the height of their manic morning routine when...

Are You Missing 'Empire' Yet? Here's Some Cookie Lyon Jabs To Fill The Void

April 5th, 2015 4:03pm EDT
10 Of Cookie Lyon's Most Bruising Verbal Jabs On 'Empire'
She’s one tough Cookie! No one can deliver a gut punch—physical or verbal—like Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson). Her verbal knockouts are as noteworthy as Floyd Mayweather’s fists. And no one is safe, especially Boo Boo Kitty. Below are 10 of Cookie’s most bruising verbal jabs.

Don’t Hush the Cookie Monster

Cookie’s grand entrance into the Empire boardroom nearly gets rebuffed by Lucious’ henchman Vernon.

Vernon: “Good to see you, Cookie…”

Cookie: “—Vernon, kiss my black ass.”

When shuttled into Lucious’ corner office, Cookie’s still not willing to back down:

Cookie: “You’re messing wit...

'Grey’s Anatomy': What's The Real Reason Derek Has Returned?

April 3rd, 2015 8:53am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap: 'When I Grow Up' - Amelia Is Near Ruin
“I have everything that I ever wanted,” Meredith brags to half sissy Maggie when finally realizing how blessed she is—being Shepherd’s wife and mom to two healthy kids. She’s complete! And only took 18 episodes to get her to embrace her wonderful life. I bet she’ll appreciate it even more after this hanky-worthy hour of Grey’s.

A grisly trauma involving police—the result of a botched bank robbery—interrupts the Grey/Sloan Hospital field trip of dreams for local eight and 10-year-olds. Webber tried to shield them from the impromptu show-and-tell session involving a cop nearly bleeding to de...

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: With Or Without You

March 27th, 2015 10:02am EDT
Five Things to Know About 'Grey’s Anatomy's' 'With or Without Yo
1. Derek kissed a girl and it wasn't Meredith, but she forgives him.

The “With or Without You” episode picks up the day after Derek returns home. He’s giving Meredith the play by play of how and why a woman picked up his phone. Said woman is Renee Collier, Derek’s research fellow.

Cue the flashbacks of the mentor and mentee—who bears a striking resemblance to Season One Meredith—bonding for 9 weeks over a research project to cure autism. When Derek-save-the-day-Shepherd has a breakthrough on Renee’s stalled project, he invites her to the lab to share the good news in person. Never mind t...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Has Derek's Cheating History Repeated Itself

March 20th, 2015 9:51am EDT
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Derek Returns A Cheater
If you’re looking for a definite confirmation that Derek has a D.C. side chick—Meredith already paints a descriptive snapshot of her—we might just get it.

But not in “Don’t Dream It’s Over” because as much as you can see a dress is blue and black, some people will view it as brown and white. In other words, things are never what they seem to be, even when it looks like they are. Including a mystery woman playing secretary on Derek’s phone. Yet, to Meredith it’s abundantly clear: he’s cheating. Her theory: “when you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras. It means that the most obvious an...

The 'Empire' Finale Delivered With A Punch And Then Some!

'Empire' Season 1 Finale Recap: Long Live The New Lyon King
A girl fight, major character death and a Lyon gets caged. “Empire” writers pulled out all the tropes for the season finale. And not one sudsy scene disappointed. But you will be if you’re trying to avoid spoilers. So, consider this fair warning. Do not read beyond this point if “Empire” is still on your must-watch TV list.

Now that it’s just us. Let’s dive into “Die But Once” episode. Lucious (Terrence Howard) is tinkering on his piano until his ALS flare-up has him seeing double. As if that’s not enough to tap down, Becky (Gabourey Sidibe) comes bursting into his office with a to-do list...
