La Toya Jackson, the tabloid-tormented middle child of music’s most famous family, says the decision to welcome television cameras back into her life was an easy one for a single, wonderful reason: At long last, nothing and no one stands in her way. “There is such a misconception about not just me, but my family, as well,” Jackson explains of her new OWN series Life With LaToya. “For the first time, this is something I want to do. I want the world to see me. The Jacksons have always been sort of a secret or a mystery. That mystery has been […]

It’s one of the most celebrated disasters in history. It’s also the subject of one of the most successful films of all time. A century has passed since the RMS Titanic took its maiden voyage into history, and people still maintain a fascination for it. The wreck claimed a grisly toll of more than 1,500 lives and stirred a furious outcry that led to drastic revision of existing maritime laws, but in its day, the Titanic disaster grabbed the popular imagination as a symbol of humanity’s hubris, the failure of its faith in rapidly advancing innovation. Over the decades, an […]

Trust the Beek: ABC’s quirky “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23”

There’s a lot to like about ABC’s wickedly funny Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 (Wednesdays at 9:30pm ET/PT beginning April 11), from the boundary-pushing title to the quirky Krysten Ritter to a part that could only be played by James Van Der Beek.

Lifetime’s hit original film “The Client List” returns as a weekly series

In 2010, actress Jennifer Love Hewitt and Lifetime teamed up to put a timely twist on the network’s oft-lamented “woman in peril” film fodder.

Though some derided the ripped-from-the-headlines tale as tawdry, the film touched a nerve with viewers, garnering impressive ratings and earning Hewitt a Golden Globe nomination for her performance. This month, The Client List returns as a 10-episode series that reunites Hewitt with venerable actress Cybill […]

Grinning handsomely, the 46-year-old Morgan playfully skips over to greet me. It’s been a few years since we last […]
