More ‘Real Housewives’ Now of ‘Beverly Hills’ Lineup Set by Bravo

August 31st, 2010 No comments

Oh this one is going to be so much fun.  A group of five stinking rich women.  Really rich.  Not like Jersey where they had money but some are in bankruptcy or creditors are putting their house up for auction.

Stinking rich.

Camille Grammer, oh yes you know of Kelsey Grammer’s ex.  She’s about ready to snatch somewhere near $30,000,000 or more since she owns half of his body and his company.

Then there’s Kim and Kyle Richards who are the aunts of the newly arrested Paris Hilton.  Now you know they got money,

Plus Adrienne Maloof who you know from the Maloof family that owns the Sacramento Kings and the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

(L to R) Taylor Ford-Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Lisa Vanderpump-Todd, Kyle Richards-Umansky, Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof

(L to R) Taylor Ford-Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Lisa Vanderpump-Todd, Kyle Richards-Umansky, Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof

Yeah, they’ve got money too.

Then there’s British restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump and Taylor Armstrong who owns and operates an SAP company.

Oh this could be a mess.

‘The Nate Berkus Show Gets Elizabeth Edwards at Launch

August 31st, 2010 No comments

Hey how does the new ‘The Nate Berkus Show’ get to spend time with John Edwards much maligned wife Elizabeth?  And you thought this was a design show, right?

Nate Berkus pulled a nice move by getting Elizabeth Edwards to guest during premiere week of the new daytime show.  And Mrs. Edwards really crosses the line into fashion which is Nate’s passion.  She just opened a place called ‘Red Windows’ a home furnishings place in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Nate Berkus

Nate Berkus

This is one lady that just keeps moving forward.  Not letting her cheating spouse and his illegitimate kid get in her way.  And if you don’t like the word illegitimate too bad.  He’s a lowlife.

So you’ve seen the promos for the show as they have been running everywhere.  And to be honest with you they are pretty boring and not too engaging.  Which means the show will be a hit.  He’s good looking, he’s talking design and combining guests like Elizabeth Edwards which will get a ton of  tune in so we’ll see how the show fares in a daytime environment that won’t include Oprah Winfrey.

As they say in the TV business check your local listings for time and channel.

New Cast Members Including Taran Killam Coming to ‘Saturday Night Live’

August 30th, 2010 No comments

Taran Killam is one of the three new cast members headed to ‘Saturday Night Live’ which means this trio replaces Will Forte who announced recently that he was done with the show seeking new opportunities.

In sports that would be one heck of a trade.  Killam for Forte and two players thrown in to the mix that only people in Chicago may know.  Not a bad deal.

Taran Killam from ‘MADtv’ and ‘Scrubs’ is headed to SNL.  He was ‘Jimmy the Overly Touchy Orderly’ on that show where TV.com blogged as the best addition to ‘Scrubs’ during the 2009 season.  He also had a short stint on ‘How I Met Your Mother’ so he’s got a nice foundation for being added to SNL.

The other two add ons, Paul Brittain and Vanessa Bayer, are both out of Chicago’s iO Theater where ‘Live’ has used as a breeding ground for the show bringing in the likes of Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Jane Lynch.

Who is Archie Punjabi? ‘The Good Wife’ Fans Know

August 30th, 2010 No comments

Her ways are not unique in gathering information needed by her bosses on the CBS hit show ‘The Good Wife.’  She’s a so-called investigator for the law firm Lockhart Gardner and works closely with Alicia Florek (Julianna Margulies) in the series.  But her role is supporting a solid cast yet Archie stands out.

Well she stands out even big time now.

Archie Punjabi has been described as a “little known British actress” but she grabbed the honors for Best Supporting Actress for her work on ‘The Good Wife.’  She plays Kalinda Sharma on the show as will probably get a bit more attention from the producers of ‘The Good Wife’ because she’s solid in the role of a slick, sometimes slimy private investigator.

Archie beat out co-worker Christine Baranski from the same show and Elisabeth Moss from ‘Mad Men’ for top honor in that category.

Kyra Sedgwick Finally Gets Her Props for ‘The Closer’

August 30th, 2010 No comments

It’s about time.  She’s just awesome in the role and after five years Kyra Sedgwick finally got her Emmy award for her work in TNT’s ‘The Closer.’   And this season’s set of shows in a prime example of why she deserved and the words “thank you, thank you very much,” one of her classic lines in the series should follow after so many years of being nominated and not getting the prize.

Kevin Bacon, Kyra SedgwickHer run as Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson on ‘The Closer’ keeps getting better and better especially this season as she competes with her immediate boss Assistant Chief Will Pope (J.K. Simmons) for a promotion to the top job at the LAPD.  It’s a solid side story and great to watch.

Five years too long but she’ll take it!

Jimmy Fallon, ‘Glee’ One of the Best Primetime Emmy Openings? You Be The Judge

August 30th, 2010 No comments

It’s was done very very well indeed.  Jimmy Fallon was fantastic.  From the cast of ‘Glee’ to ‘Mad Men’ to ’30 Rock’ and of course the never ending, ongoing comeback of Betty White, this opening was well produced and just amazing.  Feel free to watch it again here.
