Huffington Post - over 1 year
People over 50 aren't just older and wiser -- they also know a thing or two about mind-blowing sex. After all, practice makes perfect.  Here are five older celebs and their blush-inducing lessons on sex: 1. Jane Fonda, 77, has been in a relationship with music producer Richard Perry, 73, since 2009.  “If you have been celibate for a long time and then begin a new love affair, be aware that your vagina is likely to need some attention.”   2. Betty White, 93, was married to TV personality Allen Ludden from 1963 until his death in 1981. When asked about marrying again, White said, "When you've had the best, who needs the rest." "I'm still just as horny as I've ever been."   3. Lisa Rinna, 52, has been married to actor Harry Hamlin, 63, since 1997. "We're kinky as hell in bed."   4.

Bravo Source Claims Kim Richards Would Often Sneak Off During ‘RHOBH’ Filming
The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
A Bravo source claims Kim Richards’ recent relapse may have happened far before anyone realized it. Although there had been a few questions thrown out during filming on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season five, a Bravo source now claims what was going on behind-the-scenes was far more serious than what fans have seen on the show. On April 21, Ecumenical News reported the following in regard to the Bravo source’s statement: “While Richards did not drink alcohol openly on the set, the actress would, at times, disappear for a brief time period and re-appear in a somewhat less than sober state.” According to the site, the Bravo source spoke to TMZ earlier this week, revealing news of Richards’ secretive behavior on set. Prior to the Bravo source’s statement, Richards’ co-stars often questioned her sobriety, namely Lisa Rinna, who has experience with dealing with addicts (her husband Harry Hamlin’s two brothers were alcoholics). On season five of The Real Housewives of Be ...

Review: 'Immigrant' a melodramatic tale of coming to America
LATimes - over 3 years
Writer-director Barry Shurchin was apparently inspired by his own life in this awkwardly told story of Soviet Jewish émigrés in 1970s Brooklyn. Apparently inspired by writer-director Barry Shurchin's own life, "Immigrant" centers on a Russian boy named Daanyik (Samuel J. Dixon) who immigrates to Brooklyn with his drunk father, Deemaa (Harry Hamlin), and nagging mother Meelaa (Angela Gots) in the late 1970s. Deemaa is against the move from the start, and when he has to give up engineering for a job moving boxes, he grows increasingly shiftless and eventually exits the family.

The Women Are Winning On 'Mad Men'
Popeater - over 3 years
NEW YORK — Breaking up is hard to do. That is, unless you're "Mad Men," which this season has been free-and-easy in its fragmentation. By now Peggy Olson and her radical beau are splitsville. So are Pete Campbell and wife Trudy, who caught him philandering one too many times. Twice-wed Roger Sterling, currently solo, saw his knotty relationship with his mom torn asunder with her death this season, and he's alienated from his daughter and grandson. And don't forget the latest romantic entanglement of Don Draper, whose marriage to winsome Megan seemed on suicide watch as, every chance he got, he scorched the sheets with downstairs neighbor Sylvia (wife of Don's presumed friend Dr. Arnold Rosen). The only notable coming-together: the stormy merger of Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce with former rival ad agency Cutler, Gleason and Chaough, which has assembled a bickering band of ad execs only slightly more collegial than either house of Congress.

'Mad Men' Star: 'I Thought I Was Going To Play A Dad On ABC Family'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Now that he's working with Don Draper day in and day out on "Mad Men," Harry Hamlin has risen back to the top of the TV world. Hamlin took on the role of Jim Cutler on the AMC drama this season, a partner at SC & P with a fondness for getting in to trouble (drugs in the office, anyone?). But the "L.A. Law" alum says he never thought he would be on "Mad Men" in his wildest dreams. "A year or so ago, I turned to Lisa [Rinna], my wife, and I said, 'You know, I think I'm going to go back to work now. I took a bunch of years off to raise my kids, and I think I'm ready to be a regular on a show again,''" Hamlin said in an interview with Gold Derby's Chris Beachum (above at the 23:30 mark). "'In my mind, I thought that meant being a dad on ABC family. To end up here? On 'Mad Men'? I mean, oh my God!" But Hamlin was hesitant to take on the role at first, especially because series creator Matt Weiner told him nothing about what it entailed. Luckily, Rinna was around to se ...

Being Ted Chaough
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LOS ANGELES — No one is more surprised than Kevin Rahm that his "Mad Men" character Ted Chaough has become a major player in the AMC drama's sixth season. "I'm always surprised," Rahm said of the series' many twists and turns. "It wasn't until Don said, `Do you want to get in some trouble?' that I was like `Oh, oh!' The first time I read (the script) I was like `Oh, yes! Yes, we should merge!' And you know Matt (Weiner) had told me that there were big things coming for the character, but I didn't see it." Rahm's character appeared in a handful episodes in past seasons as the boss of a competing advertising firm. But the recent merger of his and Don Draper's companies – along with a shocking kiss with Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) – has thrust Ted to the forefront of the 1960s ad world drama. In a recent interview, the one-time "Desperate Housewives" actor compared leading man Jon Hamm to Hollywood megastar George Clooney and discussed why he's staying tight-lipp ...

Jeryl Brunner: A Peek Inside This Year's Race to Erase MS Gala
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When she was 33, Nancy Davis was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It was 1991, Davis had three young sons. There was no cure and no available drugs on the market. She went to a doctor and the only advice he could offer was to "go home, go to bed and expect to stop walking," says Davis who has black belt in karate, is a serious skier and plays tennis. Her doctors told her that she would be lucky just to operate the TV remote control. Unwilling to accept her doctors' grim prognosis, by 1993, Davis founded Race to Erase MS. The organization's key mission is to raise funds for aggressive, cutting-edge and promising research in an effort to find a cure. Davis also saw the need for the top MS research institutes to join forces and communicate. So Race to Erase funds The Nancy Davis Center Without Walls program which  brings together top MS researchers from Johns Hopkins, Yale, UC San Francisco, USC, Oregon Health Sciences University and Harvard. In order to have their stud ...

Maureen Ryan: Best 'Mad Men' Episode In Two Years?

Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 6, Episode 6 of AMC's "Mad Men," titled "For Immediate Release." "Everybody loves astronauts." -- Ted Chaough Oh "Mad Men." That's the stuff! "For Immediate Release" was packed wall-to-wall with moments of awesomeness. There were swell big scenes, hilarious small touches, quite a few memorable lines, and so many fabulous visuals that I need you all in my office right now; it'll take an all-night team effort to ensure the creation of the maximum number of entertaining gifs. There's a little tiny part of me that is going "But wait! But, what about...?"

William Bradley: Mad Men Meets the Assassination of Martin Luther King
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The Flood is a good episode of Mad Men, especially in a Season 6 off to an uneven start. It came at a good time, too, reassuring that our characters are not all irretrievably stuck in tedious personal melodramas. That, actually, they can be very appealing people. Spoilers follow, as usual. Incidentally, here's an archive of my pieces on the show, The Mad Men File. Who knows, the episode, which centers around the shattering assassination of Reverend Martin Luther King, might help arrest Mad Men's recent ratings slide. The Flood harkens back to what I think is the high water mark of Mad Men, at least so far, the end of Season 3, which pivots on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the subsequent end of the original Sterling Cooper agency and the Don and Betty Draper marriage. As The Flood begins, the deluge of history pouring into 1968 is underway. So much so that Don and son Bobby's sad and confused post-assassination double-viewing Planet of the Apes ...

Maureen Ryan: An Historic Tragedy Shakes Things Up On 'Mad Men'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Don't read on unless you've seen "The Flood," Sunday's episode of "Mad Men." Since it debuted, "Mad Men" has been very good at misdirection. In fact, when I've dinged various episodes in the last year or two, it's often been because they've been short on subtlety. It's not that I require the show to be stealthy all the time -- I actually tend to enjoy "Mad Men" most when it's mixing up tones, moods, structures and styles -- but when the symbolism clangs too loudly or meanings are too overt, it can throw the whole thing off and the stories can start to feel a bit didactic. The show is rightly celebrated for its ambiguity, which isn't to say that episodes that jump headlong into current affairs are failures. They're usually among the show's stronger outings, as was the case with "The Flood." To put it more briefly, "Mad Men" was quite devious and very obvious this week, and both strategies were deployed well. The misdirection had to do with the first quarter ...
