The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For October 11-12th 2008

The weekend is the perfect time to catch up on all the TV you’ve missed. Bravo will air marathons of “Project Runway” and “Rachel Zoe Project” just in time for the season finales next week. I’ll watch “Clean House: The Messiest Home in the Country” on Saturday to make myself feel less guilty about cleaning my own home. (I’m not really messy anyway.) Sunday continues to be the best for primetime viewing, especially the 10 o’clock hour. Keep reading »

Who IS Balthazar Getty, Anyway?

Who does Balthazar Getty think he is? Well, inquiring minds (who keep reading his name over and over again) want to know! So we did a little digging on the daddy that ran off with Sienna Miller and here’s what we found out:

  • LOVES: At the tender age of 16, Balthazar moved in with actress Lala Sloatman, but their relationship burned out fast. In 1989 the aspiring actor was photographed for a Seventeen magazine spread with his former girlfriend Milla Jovovich. After they split, Getty got it on with Drew Barrymore until 1991. In 2000, he married fancy-pants children’s clothing designer and couturier to the stars, Rosetta Millington. Together they have four children, but Getty said that the two separated in late-2007, before he hooked up with co-star Sienna Miller.

The Emmy’s Reward Women, Rather Than Girls

Being a woman of a certain age in Hollywood hasn’t been a desirable thing for a while, and roles tend to be few and far between once supple skin gets a little saggy and wrinkly. However, as much as we obsess over young celebs, it was the more established female crowd that won out in this year’s Emmy nominations. Only one actress nominated for an award, Ugly Betty‘s America Ferrera, is in her 20s. Almost all the Emmy-nominated actresses are older than 40, and those in their 40s are the young ones. Kyra Sedgwick, 42, is the youngest nominee for lead actress in a drama series (The Closer), and Laura Linney is the youngest to be nominated for lead actress in a miniseries or movie at age 44 (HBO’s John Adams). “People want to tune in to complex, interesting, quirky, unexpected, flawed characters, and that’s across the board, female and male,” said Rachel Griffiths, 39, nominated for Brothers & Sisters. “But the more mature actors maybe have an edge on confidence in terms of really owning those characters. I think as a young woman it’s considerably more difficult to amplify your unusual parts in quite the same way.” Why, because young women’s perky boobs are so distracting? However, it’s still a sad state in the world of movies. Like, WTF, Meryl Streep isn’t even mentioned on the movie posters for Mama Mia!?. However, after reading some of the movie’s reviews, maybe that’s better for her career. [AP] Keep reading »
