  • 'Arrow' Star Stephen Amell Reveals the Aftermath of [SPOILER] Finding Out Oliver's Secret
    By: Sydney Bucksbaum March 10, 2013 1:23pm EST
      The audience went crazy when they were treated to a new, extended promo of the next batch of Arrow episodes that showed footage of Seth Gabel’s disturbingly brilliant return as an even more unhinged The Count, as well as The Huntress giving up Oliver’s name as the vigilante to the police. But that wasn’t all we learned at the Arrow PaleyFest on Saturday night. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg also revealed to that we’ll be meeting a new villain in Episode 18 — "Salvation" — called The Savior, a vigilante who dishes out death sentences via the internet. The internet? Sounds like a job for our favorite intrepid Queen Consolidated IT girl-turned-Team Arrow tech wizard, newly-crowned series regular Felicity Smoake (Emily Bett Rickards). Oliver Queen himself, Stephen Amell, agrees that Felicity is the right person for taking down this particular vigilante. “She brings an expertise that is immediately necessary in our pursuit,” Amell says. But enough about Felicity (we thought we’d never type that sentence!): what we really wanted to know more about was how Tommy (Colin Donnell) will deal with the knowledge that Oliver is the vigilante after his big reveal in “Dead to Rights.” And Amell was more than happy to tease how Tommy won’t be as accepting as Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity were when they found out. RELATED: 'Arrow' Recap: [SPOILER] Finds Out Oliver's Secret Identity! “He did not want to tell Tommy for a variety of reasons and all of those reasons unfortunately prove true very soon,” Amell says. “It totally affects [their friendship]. It fundamentally changes every single aspect of their relationship and puts Tommy in almost immediate, imminent danger because of his proximity to me as the vigilante. We see that almost immediately in Episode 17.” Kreisberg agrees that Tommy’s feelings of betrayal and hurt will be a large part of the rest of the season. “A lot of what we’re seeing in the back half of the season is how Tommy and Oliver’s relationship has changed by this revelation that Oliver is the vigilante,” Kreisberg says. “They had always just been party guys, and Tommy assumed Oliver came back [from the island] the same way. Now he’s finding out that’s not the case.” Surprisingly, Oliver’s evolution from party boy to vigilante won't be the only obstacle in their way. “Despite, obviously, how much Oliver has changed, Oliver’s not going to realize how much Tommy has changed,” Kreisberg says. "That’s going to cause a lot of friction between them." Exciting stuff, right? Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait a little longer to see the aftermath of “Holy S*** Balls,” – um, we mean “Dead to Rights." Arrow will return with “The Huntress Returns” on Wednesday, March 20 at 8 PM ET/PT on The CW.  Follow Sydney on Twitter: @SydneyBucksbaum [Photo Credit: The CW] From Our Partners:Kim Kardashian's Maternity Style: So Wrong?

  • 'Revenge' Cast Tease Dark Times, Lost Love, and Violence Ahead
    By: Sydney Bucksbaum March 10, 2013 11:58am EST
      It’s been a couple of weeks since Amanda (Margarita Levieva) met her shocking end on Revenge, and when the show returns with tonight’s new episode, "Retribution," we’ll see our favorite Hamptonites grieving in their own way. While we already know that her widower Jack (Nick Wechsler) is out for blood, he isn’t the only one facing a tough, dark path in the wake of Amanda’s death.  Ever since Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) found out she was David Clarke’s daughter and the half-sister of Amanda, she's enjoyed a special bond with her "sister."  So besides Jack, Charlotte is affected the most by Amanda’s death. "We saw Charlotte lose her mind a bit in Season 1, and I think we might be heading a bit in that direction again," Allen says. "She’s losing it. It’s going to manifest itself in a bit of violence."  And of course Charlotte’s mental descent is going to affect her boyfriend Declan (Connor Paolo), who already has enough on his plate with trying to help his brother. "Declan had really grown to care about Amanda," Paolo says. "She was the mother of his nephew. Things come to light through their own fractured way about who Jack and Declan think is responsible for what’s happened, [and that] changes things as well." Could they possibly find out that Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny) gave the orders to kill Amanda? While that remains a mystery for now, Czerny was eager to reveal how Amanda's death will affect Revenge as a whole. "It gets better. It gets deeper," Czerny says. "There is a deeper hurt with Amanda’s passing, and the stuff that comes out of that hurt is intriguing." RELATED: 'Revenge' Season 2 Spoilers: 'S*** Is Going Down,' Promises Creator Mike Kelley One result of Amanda's death is that it makes Emily (Emily VanCamp) focus once again on taking down the Graysons. "Amanda’s death [has] given Emily a focus to drive through to the end now with a clear goal," says Barry Sloane [Aiden Mathis]. "So it’s also given Aiden a clear goal, of 'Well, I lost my sister, I’m going to help you not lose your goal.' All of his energies are going towards keeping Emily happy, and making sure that this works." But what does that mean for Emily and Aiden as a couple? "We have to see how he fits within what she needs him to do in the next few weeks," Sloane says. "Obviously the key thing is that Emily and Aiden will work together to bring down Daniel, and do whatever it takes."  That's right, instead of focusing on Conrad and Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), Emily's Revengenda is all about Daniel (Josh Bowman) now that he has fully committed to being a Grayson. And after seeing his mother kill Helen Crawley, he is no longer in the dark about his family's actions. "He’s been brought into the world more," Bowman says. "Pulling the wool from your eyes and actually seeing death, actually seeing what life is all about in this society that he’s grown up with... I think he’s brought the chips to the poker game and he’s playing the game now. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. He’s picked up the apple and taken a big bite out of it." So say goodbye to any warm, fuzzy feelings that Emily might once have had for Daniel. "Any love that she had for Daniel in the first season has just vaporized into thin air," Bowman says. "She’s just hell bent on revenge, and uses me as an access key to carry out her mission. She’s definitely a lot more calculated than she was in the first season. She’s a lot more ruthless." With the stakes the highest they've ever been, and Emily more ruthless than ever, is there any chance for a happy ending for anyone? Are they all doomed? Stowe seems to think so. "I [want to have] have some kind of suicide because Emily has driven [Victoria] so insane," she says. "And Emily is sitting in my chair in Grayson manor, and she’s turned into Victoria." We could definitely see that happening! Revenge returns Sunday night at 9 PM ET/PT on ABC.

  • 'Nashville' Cast Teases Major Relationship Changes
    By: Sydney Bucksbaum March 09, 2013 3:10pm EST
    While the cast of Nashville didn't give acoustic performances of any of their original hit country songs (boo!), they did gather onstage together for a PaleyFest panel Saturday afternoon to tease some major relationship changes in the next few episodes (yay!). When the country-music show returns with all new episodes March 27, we'll finally get to see the outcome of Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar's (Sam Palladio) grief-induced hookup.  "It’s getting freaky right now," Palladio says. "What a crazy situation to be in. They’re in a phase right that’s bringing them to a new level. Gunnar’s in a really traumatic place [after the death of his brother] and Scarlett is being that emotional bedrock for him. Bed rock, hey!" All puns aside, Bowen tried to rationalize what made Scarlett finally take their relationship to the next level at such an inopportune time. "Grief makes people do very odd things," Bowen says. "The person you’re supposed to be with may not turn up at the most convenient, appropriate time. So you’ll have to wait and see what the aftermath is like." And while Gunnar and Scarlett's relationship is being taken to new levels, the relationship at the core of Nashville is as complicated as ever. Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) have a long history, and things haven't gotten any easier with the announcement of Rayna's upcoming divorce and their heated elevator kiss. But Britton and Esten aren't optimistic that they can get a happily ever after. "She’s the one for me, but does that always work out, is that always the best?" Esten says. "That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to work out but we’re always trying." RELATED: 'Nashville' Recap: Scarlett's Cupcake Controversy Britton agrees that their journey won't be an easy one. "It’s a very grown up relationship," Britton says. "We can go in so many different directions and we have. We can just rip each other apart in so many ways. But there’s always this foundation between the two of them." While Britton and Esten couldn't reveal details about their relationship, we did get some scoop on what's coming up for Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) in the wake of her marriage annulment. "One marriage under my belt, a few 'carcasses,'" Panettiere says. "She’s mostly trying to rekindle the relationship with her mother and she loves to take two steps forward and one step back. Her life is a roller coaster." But Panettiere did tease that someone new may be coming into Juliette's life. "A new character is going to come in and try to help this relationship, but whether or not that comes to fruition is questionable," Panettiere says. "Some clothes might come off in the meantime." She also revealed that one episode in particular will feature a lot of naked Juliette! Interestingly enough, creator Callie Khouri also teased that the moment where Avery (Jonathon Jackson) bumps into Juliette (and tries to turn it into a pick up line) in the pilot might be a good foreshadowing of things to come. Could we possibly be seing an Avery/Juliette romance?  We'll find out when Nashville returns on Wednesday, March 27 at 10 PM ET/PT on ABC.  Follow Sydney on Twitter: @SydneyBucksbaum [Photo Credit: Katherine Bomboy-Thorton/ABC] From Our Partners:Kim Kardashian's Maternity Style: So Wrong?

  • Unhappy Hour: Justin Bieber's Meltdown Begins and 11 Other Reasons to Drink
    By: Sydney Bucksbaum March 09, 2013 12:06pm EST
      Each week, Hollywood gives us something to whine about, and the week of March 4 was no different. We could make a drinking game out of this week, but that would be too dangerous. Instead, we'll stick to the usual formula: varying levels of alcoholic respite depending on how bothersome the week's issues are. Is your biggest complaint this week a flimsy one? How about a light cocktail to take the edge off? Got a real bone to pick with a celeb or entertainment entity this week? Go ahead, grab a drink that'll put hair on your chest. Here are the week's entertainment stories that are forcing us to seek a bubbly or boozy refuge. And maybe an idea or two about how you should wash them down. Chill Out With a Glass of Wine Justin Bieber's Meltdown Has Officially Begun: Hey, we all knew it was coming. After collapsing onstage during a concert and being rushed to the hospital, Bieber then leapt from his car to "beat the f***" out of papparazzi. This was all following his worst birthday ever, too. Are we really supposed to feel bad for the uber-famous, uber-successful pop superstar? Topanga Strips Down: The Boy Meets World star set out to prove that the '90s are still hot. Danielle Fishel, mission accomplished.  Shia LaBeouf Is Shockingly Buff: ... but still not hot. We can't figure out why, but serious kudos to those abs and pecs, LaBeouf. You've been holding out on us! Will Smith Made Up a New Accent: ...and we have no idea what it's supposed to be. The rest of the new trailer for After Earth looks pretty cool, though.  Take It Up a Notch: Pop The Champagne The Glass Ceiling Still Exists In Hollywood: Only three women are directing big, blockbuster movies this year. So much for today being International Women's Day, huh? George Lucas is Opening an Art Museum: He's trying to prove that Star Wars is highbrow, more highbrow than a museum about actual history.  Vivienne Westwood Hates Michelle Obama's Style: Famed fashion designer Vivienne Westwood thinks the FLOTUS has "dreadful" style. We're pretty sure she is completely alone in that argument.  Louis C.K. Hates His Own Promo: The trailer for his upcoming HBO comedy special, Oh My God, is all about how much he hates his own trailer. But isn't that why we love him? Classiness Is Overrated, Where's the Tequila? Joy Behar Is Leaving The View: After 16 and a half years, the daytime talk show is losing one of its core members. Who should replace her? But before you start to panic: Elisabeth Hasselbeck is still sticking around. Consolation prize? Sesame Street Lied to Us! Turns out, The Count can't actually count. What else has PBS been hiding from us? Holly Madison Gives Birth to My Little Pony: Trying to outdo other star's weird baby names, the Playboy Bunny named her newborn daughter Rainbow Aurora.

  • AnnaLynne McCord Reveals '90210' Cast Found Out About Cancelation On Twitter
    By: Sydney Bucksbaum March 08, 2013 8:47pm EST
    Finding out that your long-running TV series has been canceled certainly sucks. But when you find out the news not through an official announcement or a phone call, but instead via Twitter? That's just adding insult to injury, at least according to 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord. "It was a shocker," McCord told Life & Style of the recent cancelation. "[The cast] found out via Twitter — that wasn’t cool at all." McCord, who has played the confident, sometimes-villain Naomi Clark on the CW soap for five seasons, also wasn't satisfied with the ending that was written for her character. So she decided to shoot her own! "They rewrote the ending and I liked the original so I filmed my own ending — a surprise for the fans," McCord says. She will tweet the link to her ending on YouTube after the finale airs. RELATED: '90210' Canceled After Five Seasons The 25-year-old says the ending of 90210 is "emotional" and "bittersweet. We’ve had a great time. All things have to end and new things begin." Plus, now that she isn't Naomi for the first time in five years, she can finally change her hair color! While she hasn't officially dyed her hair dark, she did don a brunette wig to test out the color.  Haha you guys R awesome!! I was saying I don't "have" to be blonde--but I haven't made the switch ...yet. I just wanted to spend a day, dark — AnnaLynne McCord (@IAMannalynnemcc) March 6, 2013 What do you think of her possible new hair color? We say go for it!  The 90210 series finale airs Monday, May 13, at 9 PM ET/PT on The CW.

  • The Most Ridiculous Things Terrence Howard Has Ever Said
    By: Sydney Bucksbaum March 08, 2013 6:48pm EST
    Noted oversharer Terrence Howard was at it again this week during his press tour for the now-in-theaters drama Dead Man Down. In addition to his confession to that he thinks Iron Man killed his career, the actor also revealed how much he, uh, appreciates new costar Oprah' form: he very much enjoyed being able to "make out with Oprah, to have love scenes with her and those tig ol' bitties." Um, thanks for sharing? But those two TMI statements are hardly the craziest things the actor has gone on record saying. Don't believe us? Here are seven of the most outlandish, bizarre things Howard has said in recent years: Biting the hand that fed him"The worst thing I've witnessed is Iron Man killing my career." Defending Chris Brown's abuse of Rihanna"It's just life, man. Chris is a great guy. He'll be alright. And Rihanna knows he loves her, you know? They'll be alright." Learning music from his grandmother"She would sit down at the piano and teach me the relationship between A and C and G – why they were best friends, why they would… talk to each other." RELATED: Terrence Howard is a Fan of Oprah's 'Tig Ol' Bitties' Loving himself"I like women who look like me. Generally, you're attracted to women who look like you, because the most beautiful thing in nature is your own reflection." Why he is against premarital sex"If a relationship is built on sexuality, it won't last long. Now I'm completely chaste through a relationship unless I get married. I don't believe in premarital sex. It enabled me to date three or four women at the same time, because as long as I wasn't having sex with them, I could always just walk away. There were some [past girlfriends] who pushed for sex, and sometimes they won. Afterward, I would feel unclean, like I'd compromised my own values. So I would have to let them go because they didn't help me to be a stronger person." On his divorce"I was in love with her, but she was not in love with me. I can't be upset because she doesn't find me the most beautiful thing on the planet." Female hygiene"Toilet paper — and no baby wipes — in the bathroom. If they're using dry paper, they aren't washing all of themselves. It's just unclean. So if I go in a woman's house and see the toilet paper there, I'll explain this. And if she doesn't make the adjustment to baby wipes, I'll know she's not completely clean." You can catch the eloquent man himself in Dead Man Down, now playing in theaters.

  • 'Nikita' Star Dillon Casey Teases Two Major Deaths
    By: Sydney Bucksbaum March 08, 2013 5:05pm EST
      The big moment has finally arrived on tonight's Nikita: Nikita (Maggie Q) and Amanda (Melinda Clarke) in the same room, together for the first time since Nikita was forced to chop off Michael’s (Shane West) hand to save his life as a result of Amanda’s actions. This entire season has centered around the cat and mouse game Amanda has played with Nikita and Division, and last week featured her betrayal of longtime love and ally Ari Tasarov (Peter Outerbridge). In tonight's can't-miss episode, "Reunion," we'll watch Amanda attempt to kidnap Ari’s son Stefan to use him as leverage. But since he is still in Division’s protective custody, Ari begs Nikita for help. However, Stefan’s bodyguard manages to capture both Nikita and Amanda, and the two must work together to escape.  Whoa, Amanda and Nikita have to work together? We told you tonight’s episode is a can’t-miss! With both the big bad of the season and our heroine captured — plus severely raised stakes — don’t expect all of your favorites to make it out of this season alive. Dillon Casey, the man behind the Navy SEAL-turned-Division agent Sean Pierce, warned that there will be some major casualties. "A lot of bodies are going to start hitting the floor," Casey reveals. "Nobody is safe." RELATED: 'Nikita': Devon Sawa on Owen in Love, Zombie Percy, and the Opposite of a Bromance We've always known that Nikita is a high-stakes show, with characters dying all the time. But will one of our favorites be among the casualties? "I can’t tell you who is dying, but I can tell you that at least two very important people will be dead by the end of this season," Casey says. How’s that for a reveal? Time to start the speculation: who isn’t going to make it out of this season alive? We hope it’s Amanda, but something tells us we’re going to be shedding some tears for someone on the good side of Division... Casey also mapped out the plan for the rest of the season: the focus is now firmly on taking down Amanda before she takes down Division. "The Dirty 30 has been put on ice for a while, because Amanda’s taking stronger action against Division," Casey says. "She has risen up as the main villain that they have to face now, and she wants to take down Division — take down Nikita — [using] whatever means necessary. She is the number one person they have to worry about." And even though Division has a lot of expensive technology and resources behind them, it will take a lot more to defeat the nefarious Amanda. "She has been planning this for ages, so they have to face being a step behind for a while," Casey says. "There is a lot more asking the question, 'does the end justify the means?'" RELATED: Dillon Casey Tells Why 'Nikita' Turned His Character Into a Nintendo-Loving Stoner That question has been a plague ever since the good guys took over Division. What happens after Division has taken down Amanda and the Dirty 30? Do they keep it running, or shut it down? "[Division] has too much power and not enough accountability," Casey says. "It's always on a slippery slope, and it always comes down to the morals of the people running it. So Fletcher now has a lot of power in his hands. Whether or not Division’s a good or a bad thing is fully dependent on his decisions." And now that Division's one ally in the government is dead (thanks to, surprise surprise, Amanda), that slippery slope of using Division for good or evil has even higher consequences. "For the President, the only way to shut it down is to kill it, and kill everybody involved," Casey says. "As an illegal operation they could decide to go rogue and essentially become terrorists. It’s mutually assured destruction between the President and Division. [At] any minute they could decide to wage war on the other." But the one thing keeping the uneasy alliance in check is the one thing they are working together to take down. "It’s like these two people who wished the other didn’t exist, battling against a common enemy," Casey says. "It’s the common enemy that keeps them both going. It keeps them allied. And that common enemy is Amanda." So what do we think — should she die, or is Amanda's life too important for the rest of our heroes? Let us know in the comments below!  Nikita airs Fridays at 8 PM ET/PT on The CW.

  • Justin Bieber Collapses Onstage During London Concert - REPORT
    By: Sydney Bucksbaum March 07, 2013 7:24pm EST
    Has Justin Bieber's meltdown officially begun? Recently, the teen pop star has been in headlines for his "worst birthday ever," starting his concert hours late, and flaunting some seriously questionable outfits... and the kicker occurred Thursday when Bieber collapsed onstage during a show in London and was rushed to the hospital.  According to eyewitnesses who took to Twitter immediately after Bieber left the stage, he experienced breathing troubles during his show at London's O2 arena and passed out. "He got oxygen from emergency personnel. He insisted on finishing the show. He is on the way to the hospital right now," his rep told E! News. RELATED: Justin Bieber Won't Shut Up About His 'Worst Birthday Ever' "Justin got very light of breath. The whole show he's been complaining, and he's backstage with the EMTs and the doctor," Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, told the crowd. "They're telling him that they want him to go see somebody and see what's going on with his lungs." Bieber returned to the stage about 10 minutes later and finished the show, despite a doctor's recommendation that he end it early, and was rushed to the hospital after it ended. Of course, he took to Twitter almost immediately, tweeting out to his Beliebers, "getting better. thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love."
