Kings of South Beach: A True-Life Story Of Crime In Paradise

“I’m not a big nightclub person, so I’ve never had any real draw to South Beach,” says Donnie Wahlberg at the start of our interview. However, the actor did have a strong draw to his intense role in a new A&E original movie set beneath the steamy sun of Miami and based on a true story. In Kings of South Beach, premiering March 12, Wahlberg plays Andy Burnett, a mysterious man who befriends Chris Troiano (Jason Gedrick), a mob wiseguy who is fast becoming the “it boy” of South Florida in the late 1990s.

Here, divided by groups like at Westminster (though slightly less snobby; we actually recognize Jack Russell terriers and mixed breeds!), are some of our favorite dogs from TV history: Working […]

Rolling Out The 2007 Awards Season

“We get a nice break around Christmas,” Access Hollywood‘s weekend co-anchor and correspondent Tony Potts told me when we spoke in late November, speaking for himself and all the other entertainment journalists who cover the red carpet and awards ceremonies. “Then we all know, before we leave on Christmas, as soon as we get back it starts up like a machine.” Well, that machine gets activated Jan. 9 with CBS’ coverage of the People’s Choice Awards. “It always starts with the People’s Choice Awards,” said Potts, “which to me is a good way to start off the awards season.” Potts […]
