'Sex And The City' Creator Darren Starr Didn't Want Carrie To End Up With Big
Huffington Post - about 1 year
In another world, Carrie Bradshaw may not have had her happily ever after with Mr. Big.  Show creator Darren Starr revealed in a new Kindle Singles interview that he believes the show's finale went against its central conceit. "... if you're empowering other people to write and produce your show, you can't ... say certain things," Starr said.  "At a certain point, you've got to let them follow their vision. … But I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage," he continued. "Not that they can't. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached." In other words, if Starr had been behind the wheel, we might have seen Carrie stomp off alone into the dust, pair of Manolos encasing her independent woman feet.  As it was, she got Big (Chris Noth), who just last week had a "Sex and the City" reunion with Carrie Brad ...

Valerie Jarrett Doesn't Think America Would Embrace An Anti-Gay President
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Senior White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett has a message for the GOP presidential candidates -- namely, Rand Paul, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz -- who’ve been running on an anti-gay agenda. “It might be interesting in the 24-hour news cycle,” she told me in a recent interview on SiriusXM Progress. “But ultimately... the American people don’t embrace that kind of opinion.” Jarrett, who spoke with me about a groundbreaking federal report that calls for ending “conversion therapy” programs for minors who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, responded to Rand Paul’s assertion in Iowa several days earlier that LGBT people don’t need to be protected by law against discrimination in employment. Paul, in backing up his claim, said, “If you are gay, there are plenty of places that will hire you," explaining that “the things you do in your house, just leave those in your house and they wouldn't have to be a part of the workplace.” “Well, this is what I would say to you ...

'The Good Wife' Recap: Scandal in 'Loser Edit'
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 6, Episode 18 of CBS's The Good Wife, titled "Loser Edit." So much scandal these days! This week opened with a very Good Wife-y montage of Alicia being interviewed by an evil journalist who wants to take her down. The email leak breaks and we see that it won't be an easy ride for Saint Alicia. Especially because there are some steamy emails between her and Will in the dump. Eli enlists Peter's help to clear her name and two very good things come from this. The first is about those steamy emails. We always knew it was hot and heavy between those two and that it was an intense emotional and physical affair. But we never got the romance. In the (sort of) cheesy emails between them, you have them admitting their desires and all the good stuff. It's funny how a year after his death on the show, we finally get a full picture of who he was to Alicia and how he felt about her. Same goes for Peter. He and Alicia share oversized glass ...

Tres Brooklyn: Jean-Paul Gaultier at the Brooklyn Museum and Tres Chic: Grace Kelly Celebrated
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Only some of the crowd greeting French designer Jean-Paul Gaultier at the Brooklyn Museum, wore his clothes, easily identified by the tab on the back. But many chose the occasion of the opening of a lavish exhibition, "The Fashion World of Jean-Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk," to pay tribute, riffing on his most camp and louche looks without actually wearing HIS designs. That's to be expected for the man who gave Madonna the pointy cone bra! But upstairs on the museum's fifth floor, rooms fitted with mannequins whose facial expressions move in delight or dismay display his art in a spectacular show to rival the splendid Alexander McQueen at the Metropolitan Museum a few seasons back. Featuring a full sampling of his career, from his nautical stripes to beaded bustiers, lace gowns to tartan trenchcoats, gartered corsets and an outré glamour, the exhibition illustrates the line between what is beautiful and what can actually be worn. The exhibition catalogue, with image ...

If It Ain't Broke, Why 'Fix' 'The Good Wife'?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Sunday's episode of "The Good Wife" isn't called "Hitting The Fan" for nothing. Like you, my mouth hung open several times, from the sheer shock on Will's face upon learning that Alicia was leaving the firm, and her betrayal (what everyone who isn't Alicia, Cary, Carey and the other fourth years sees it as), to destroying her office and Will coldly firing her and having security escort her out of the offices of Lockhart Gardner. And that was all before the title sequence came on the screen. Gah! Did everyone else unclench their fists or exhale with relief after seemingly holding their breath for those tense minutes? Because it couldn't have been just me. But as far as Chris Noth is concerned, it's the kind of shakeup the show needed. "It feels like it can never go back," the actor who plays Peter Florrick told media at the CBS International Press Junket in New York City mere hours before last night's game-changing episode aired. "It was great. It's like a new show, in a way. The dynam ...

'The Good Wife' Celebrates 100th Episode Milestone By Giving Back
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Forget the cake, the champagne and the red carpet: "The Good Wife" celebrated 100 episodes a little differently. The cast and crew assembled in the Far Rockaways, an area of New York hit hard by Hurricane Sandy one year ago, and helped rebuild homes affected by the storm. "[W]e realized how we'd want to spend a celebration to say, 'Wow, 100 episodes' -- which is such a milestone in television -- that we could give back and say thank you rather than take," series star Julianna Margulies told reporters on Saturday. "I think it's important for us to give back. We have so much." "The Good Wife" cast, crew and even the people higher up came together to raise more than $77,000 for the St. Bernard Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping disaster-impacted communities recover. Reese May, the East Coast director of operations for St. Bernard Project, said it's important to not forget many people are still suffering a year later. "['The Good Wife'] did a lot of work here in the ...

Prepare For A 'Good Wife' 'Bloodbath'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) said "I'm in." to Cary (Matt Czuchry) in "The Good Wife" Season 4 finale, she started something that cannot be stopped. "Her choosing to leave with Cary and start her own firm creates a bloodbath at Lockhart/Gardner," Margulies said in the preview video below. "The Good Wife" Season 5 will be "civil war," according to "Good Wife" co-creator Robert King. Alicia and Cary are leaving, along with several other players, and the tensions will rise. "It's going to be a really tumultuous time, i think," Margulies said. "You're going to be on a whirlwind and then there's going to be an explosion. It's going to rock everyone's world on the show." "The Good Wife" Season 5 picks up with Alicia announcing her plans to leave Lockhart/Gardner to her husband, Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), the newly elected governor of Illinois, and his adviser Eli Gold (Alan Cumming). But the exit doesn't happen immediately, leading Cary and Alicia to tipto ...

Amanda Seyfried Shines In 'Lovelace'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LOS ANGELES — The lurid celebrity and sordid aftermath of the brief career of the world's first porn star is vividly, if not explicitly, etched in "Lovelace." Given all the ways a project like this could have gone wrong, the result is surprisingly good on several fronts, beginning with a shrewd structure that fosters an intelligent dual perspective on the public and private aspects of the "Deep Throat" phenomenon. Leaving behind the overly academic approach they brought to an earlier cultural and censorship landmark in "Howl" three years ago, directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman have made a real movie here. Linda Lovelace was the nom de porn bestowed upon Florida girl Linda Boreman when she starred in her one and only hardcore feature, the 1972 film that became the adult film industry's first crossover smash, launched "porno chic" and went on to gross anywhere from $100 million to $600 million on an initial expenditure of less than $50,000. Lovelace only ever collecte ...

Why We Can't Quit Carrie Bradshaw
Huffington Post - over 3 years
HBO's "Sex And The City" came to its dramatic end in 2004 with protagonist Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) wearing a beautiful dress in Paris and having the notoriously emotionally unavailable, high-rolling Mr. Big (Chris Noth) tell her she was "the one." Nearly a decade later, New York is less about Manolo Blahniks and Manhattan and more about Hannah Horvath's jumpers and Brooklyn. And Carrie has become a character people love to scoff at, whether it's for her absurdly unrealistic spending habits or the destructive way she approached her love life. Or perhaps, as Emily Nussbaum points out in her New Yorker essay "How 'Sex And The City' Lost Its Good Name," the biggest bone we have to pick with Carrie is how frighteningly imperfect she was before imperfect became cool, in the form of "Girls'" Hannah and "Homeland's" Carrie Mathison. "Carrie and her friends -- Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte -- were ... jagged, aggressive, and sometimes frightening figures, li ...

Political Scandals Are 'The Gift That Keeps On Giving' For 'The Good Wife'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A disgraced politician returns to the spotlight shortly after failing his constituents and his wife: It's a political comeback story for the ages. Not only is that the plot of CBS's "The Good Wife," starring Julianna Margulies, but it's happening in New York City with Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner. "I would never want to benefit from someone else's pain but I have been emailing [our producers] for two weeks now," Margulies told E! News about the recent Weiner controversy. "It is the gift that just keeps on giving. It is shocking that in our fifth season, this show is more relevant than ever. It's amazing that my character is a character that women are looking to for answer as to how she feels about it. Alicia's advice to the wives would be, 'Go back to work. Don't open the paper. Don't watch TV.'" "The Good Wife" creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King have not been shy about discussing the influences political scandals, like Spitzer's, had on the sh ...

Does This Look Familiar, 'Good Wife' Fans?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"The Good Wife," which has long acknowledged real political scandals as inspiration, is once again politically relevant: Huma Abedin stood by her husband, disgraced congressman and current New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, at a press conference on Tuesday and the scene was all too familiar. Weiner called the press conference after a woman came forward, alleging she had a racy online exchange with Weiner. The scandals of Weiner and Eliot Spitzer -- who's currently running for New York City Comptroller -- heavily inspired "The Good Wife." The CBS drama tells the story of Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), the wife of a disgraced politician (played by Chris Noth) who went to jail and lost his position as State's Attorney of Cook County Chicago after his affairs with prostitutes came to light. Eventually, the character was released and made a political comeback. In the Season 4 finale in April, he was elected governor of Illinois. See photos from the firs ...
