Chi McBride talks about new season of hit show, Chicago’s violence
Chicago Defender, United States - Picture a private investigator using a pie maker who has special powers to raise the dead with a single touch and help solve murder cases.

Sound off-the-wall?

Well to Chi McBride, it does and it doesn’t.

The Chicago native, born Kenneth McBride, said it’s been a while since he had a comedic role, and when the TV show “Pushing Daisies” was presented to him, he knew it was a good fit.

McBride plays Emerson Cod, the private investigator, on the Emmy-nominated ABC show.

“I hadn’t found anything that was interesting, especially for Black characters. This was something that was very different. I wanted to do

National Ledger, AZ - Andrea Bowen, who's played Teri Hatcher's "Desperate Housewives" daughter for the past four years, is hustling to make a new life for herself now that her series character has been all but written off of the show.  "It was definitely a huge shock and is hard to swallow," says Bowen of "Housewives" creator Marc Cherry's decision to advance the action on the series up five years, terminating the marriage of Teri Hatcher and James Denton (though Cherry's made clear Denton will continue to have a place on the show) and giving Teri a different series husband -- in addition to

Finding drug-free zone: Benjamin Bratt stars as 'The Cleaner,' helping addicts kick the habit
International Herald Tribune - Actor Benjamin Bratt remembers first hearing the concept for "The Cleaner." It grabbed him, "however unbelievable I found it to be."

Months later, he read the pilot script and saw the possibilities in this new A&E drama series. He liked how it's part serialized portrait, part procedural. As for a heroin-addict hero whose last-ditch bid for recovery calls for him to help other addicts get clean, well, this "extreme interventionism" still had Bratt scratching his head.

"In my first meeting with the co-creators, Jonathan Prince and Robert Munic, I asked them, 'How do you think audiences are gonna take to the idea?

The event was the Channel 101 – or Channy – Awards, a festival acknowledging the best in short films on the Internet.

At the Los Angeles ceremony, Romano found himself being dissed left and right by Silverman.

“She was making fun of me in the jokes. I didn’t even know her,” said Romano, a Nashua native and 1996 graduate of Nashua High School.

He was introduced to her at the end of the show.

“I was the guy you were making fun of,” Romano said to Silverman.

Ready to Charge Head-On Into Pain
New York Times - Watching Bebe Neuwirth extract the scar tissue from the emotional viscera of Brecht-Weill songs at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency on Wednesday evening, I thought, “Here is the new Julie Wilson!” This woman is not afraid to face the painful truth and courageous enough to relive it onstage as completely as a performer can without crumbling into a mawkish heap. It is the same kind of surgery that Ms. Wilson recently performed in her Kabuki-like way at the Metropolitan Room, where she delivered the Brecht-Weill song lyrics as infuriated spoken monologues.

She's also asked by the interviewer what pleases her more, applause or laughter, and she makes a point of saying that it's laughter because "you can prompt applause with a sign."

There May Be Cracks, But The Comedy Glass Ceiling Still Exists For Women
Starpulse.com - Branford, CT, USA - In this town (Los Angeles) and this industry (entertainment), there are a handful of strong, intelligent, funny women who - once they finally broke onto the radar - have worked consistently in equally strong, intelligent, funny roles.

After reading this month's "Who Says Women Aren't Funny" issue of Vanity Fair, it is impossible not to notice just how many beyond the current "it" girls of comedy were left off that list (which included funnygirls such as Tina Fey, Sarah Silverman and Amy Poehler). This is an attempt to rectify that and garner them the recognition they so rightly deserve.

Shields' Rep Denies Fake Tan Halted 'Lipstick Jungle' Filming
Brooke Shields
San Francisco Chronicle - CA, USA - Brooke Shields' representatives have hit back at reports she has stalled filming on her latest TV show, "Lipstick Jungle," because of her excessive use of fake tanner.

The star was accused of lathering herself in fake tan by the show's guest star Leven Rambin, stating the actress was desperate to sport a bronzed look for scheduled sex scenes.

Rambin claims Shield went overboard with a tanning agent, turning herself orange and halting further filming on series.

However, Rambin's claim has been refuted by a spokesperson for Shields, who tells MSNBC.com's The Scoop the actress has never used self-tanning products: "This is totally not

Modesto Bee - Modesto, CA, USA - When "I Dream of Jeannie" star Barbara Eden comes to the Gallo Center for the Arts, it won't be her first time in Modesto.

The perky San Francisco-bred actress had cousins in our city when she was still known as Barbara Huffman (Eden is her stage name). She isn't sure if any of her relatives still live here, but if they do, she hopes they will come see her show.

She and longtime friend Hal Linden of "Barney Miller" are performing the two-person play "Love Letters" for one night only next Friday.

"It's a wonderfully constructed play," Eden said in a phone interview.

‘Lipstick Jungle’ Premiere
Playfeed - USA - Remember those perfume ads back in the 1980’s for Parfums decoeur ‘Designer Imposters’? They went something like “if you like Giorgio you’ll love Primo!, if you like Opium you’ll love Ninja” or the more recent enticement, “If you like Juicy Couture you’ll love Yeah Baby.” It’s human to want a whiff of luxury at a bargain price - too bad the end result usually stinks.

Alan Pergament: 'Lipstick Jungle' offers powerful women, predictable format
Buffalo News - NY, United States - It is easy to arrive at the conclusion that two new series about unsatisfied powerful women are part of a left-wing Hollywood conspiracy to make Sen. Hillary Clinton look more sympathetic.

A month after producer Darren Star of HBO’s “Sex and the City” fame premiered his newest, ratings-challenged gal pal series, “Cashmere Mafia,” NBC trots out its own cliched, high-gloss, PG-13 “Sex” rip-off, “Lipstick Jungle.”

The series about the adventures of privileged working women living in a world lacking in racial diversity premieres at 10 tonight on WGRZ-TV.
