Chatting With Lisa Vanderpump On Owning Decades Worth Of Jewelry
Huffington Post - about 2 years
photo cred: Getty Lisa Vanderpump is the fabulous aunt you've always wanted and the doyenne of personal style. It was a frigid cold Friday the 13th when I headed over to the uber fancy Plaza Hotel's Todd English Food Court to chat with Lisa on her new namesake jewelry line that's being sold exclusively on EVINE Live, a digital TV shopping company. Lisa is arguably the most dynamic woman in business and it's safe to say that she's well-liked on and off camera. The EVINE Live hosted a Valentine's weekend special featuring many new and exclusive launches, plus some customer-favorited brands. New proprietary brands scheduled to debut during that weekend included Lisa Vanderpump Estate Jewelry,The Countess Collection Fashions (by the Countess LuAnn), as well as a special unveiling of The Plaza Waterford Collection, which explains why all the cocktails and champagne were served up in luxury. Aside from Giggy and Todd hanging out with matching outfits, I also met Paula Deen's husban ...

The Portland Mercury - over 3 years
Disney's Planes embodies our high hopes for spiritual rebirth. by Denis C. Theriault PLANES IS MORE than Disney's craven attempt at a Cars knockoff—another underdog tale about another anthropomorphic vehicle caught up in the easy-to-simplify, winners-and-losers world of "racing." Did you know it's also the finest Dane Cook film ever made? In a courageous, star-making turn, the reliably hilarious Cook exudes profound depth and heart when voicing Dusty Crophopper, a shit-stinking crop-duster plane who yearns to break free from the caste of his construction (because, like Frank Zappa sang, "you are what you is") and win glory as a world-famous racing plane who tangles with the best in a voyage around the globe. Strategically deployed caricatures of foreign nationals and charming small-town denizens (played by other famous Hollywood actors and actresses! Like Stacy Keach! And Sinbad! And Teri Hatcher!) help brighten what is, at ti ...

Evan Bleier: Easy On The Ears: A Q&A With Voice Actor Roger Craig Smith of Planes
Huffington Post - over 3 years
They probably wouldn't be able to identify him if they saw him on the street, but fans of video games, Cartoon Network, Disney and TLC might be able to recognize Roger Craig Smith if he stopped to ask for directions. Smith voices some of the top characters in video games and animation and he also does his fair share of voiceover work as well. Building off his success playing Captain America on Disney XD's "Avengers Assemble," voicing Thomas the Intern on Cartoon Network's "Regular Show" and lending his vocal talents to popular video games like Assassin's Creed (as Ezio Auidtore da Firenze) Resident Evil (as Chris Redfield) and the soon-to-be released Batman: Arkham Origins (as Batman), Smith took on one of his biggest roles to date -- Ripslinger in Disney's brand animated feature film Planes which cruises into theaters on Friday, August 9. His character, nicknamed "Rip," is the lead villain in the film and his goal is to stop Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook) from winning the W ...

Yikes, This Is Really Bad
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This week's worst-dressed list was a stage for over-the-top looks. "Entourage" star Bai Ling took things a little too far in an orange corset dress and a bedazzled bra, while Rita Ora's metallic suit, crop top and straw visor left us scratching our heads. Though there were some serious doozies this week, the most tragic was Chrissy Teigen's sheer canary yellow top. Had the gorgeous model opted for a slightly different shade and a little more coverage, we think it had best-dressed potential. Hayley Atwell The "Restless" star mistakenly combined too many elements in one dress. The head-to-toe sequins, plunging neckline and sheer detailing are all muddling the look. Olivia Munn Although we admire Munn's minimalist approach, the simplicity of her look is ruined by the wrinkles in her dress. We are also a little confused by the weird piece of lace connecting the straps on her frock (we have a feeling this new trend won't catch on). Rita Ora There's ...

Lee Hernandez: 10 Reasons Every Latino Should Watch Devious Maids on Sunday Night
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
By now you've probably heard a million reasons why you shouldn't watch Devious Maids (the new Eva Longoria and Marc Cherry produced dramedy premiering Sunday night on Lifetime), but I'm here to tell you 10 reasons you should watch it -- especially if you're Latino! While I respect the opinion of those in the community who believe the show reinforces Latino stereotypes, I had a very different reaction to the show when I watched it this week on Lifetime.com (the pilot is already available online). First of all, I was floored by the great performances from Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez and the rest of the ensemble. I got goose-bumps when I saw the names of four Latinas I respect greatly listed in the opening credits as the show's four leads (the last time that happened? Never!). I laughed and (almost) cried. I'm glad I gave Devious Maids a chance, because if I hadn't, I'd be missing out on a great show. And I want all Latinos to give the show a chance like I did, so I wrot ...

'Man Of Steel': The Importance Of Lois Lane
MTV News - almost 4 years
by Brett White With "Man of Steel" opening today in theaters, all attention is currently fixated on Superman. But there's another character that has been by his side for 75 years, who debuted right alongside him in "Action Comics" #1 way back in 1938, and who is incredibly important to the Superman mythos. That character is Lois Lane, the fearless reporter whose human courage inspires even Earth's powerful alien protector. The legendary character is brought to life in the new film by Amy Adams, who inherited her press pass from Kate Bosworth, Erica Durance, Dana Delaney, Teri Hatcher, Margot Kidder, Phyllis Coates and Noel Neill, among others. But when you're paired up with a man who can punch mountains, you're bound to get overlooked. We're here to make sure that doesn't happen. Without Lois Lane, there is no Superman. To give the character some much deserved attention, we approached a panel of comic creators, journalists and fans to get the lowdown on Lois Lane. "Lois is cent ...

    However, after the show concluded in 2012, media sources revealed an apparent rift with her co-stars.
    More Details Hide Details It has been widely speculated that the cast did not get along well with Hatcher. Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, and Vanessa Williams gave thank-you gifts to the crew from the show which included a message with their names subscribed at the end, and Hatcher's name was distinctly absent. TV Guide source, William Keck, revealed that "something went down" between Hatcher and the cast that caused a split and also observed how Hatcher would physically distance herself from the others during breaks in filming. On her end, Hatcher said to TV Guide, "I will never disclose the true and complicated journey of us all, but I wish everyone on the show well." Longoria denied any animosity saying to David Letterman, "we all get along." Remarkably, a friend of Longoria's revealed, to another media source, that Hatcher "excluded herself from the rest of the cast from day one," and that she chose to end it all on a sad note, saying, "doing the last press they will ever do for the show, the ladies stood united and were shocked when Teri simply didn't show up."

    More Details Hide Details Stone pleaded guilty to four counts of child molestation and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. In the Vanity Fair interview, Hatcher said she told the prosecutors about her own abuse because she was haunted by thoughts of the 14-year-old girl who shot herself, and feared Stone might escape conviction. Stone died of colon cancer on August 19, 2008, having served six years of his sentence. Hatcher studied acting at the American Conservatory Theater. One of her early jobs (in 1984) was as an NFL cheerleader with the San Francisco 49ers.

    More Details Hide Details In June 2007, Hatcher appeared on UK chat show The Paul O'Grady Show, where she revealed she writes a column in Glamour. In February 2008, Hydroderm sued Hatcher for breach of contract, claiming she had promoted the beauty products of other companies. She insisted her promotion of CityLips' lip plumper did not affect the Hydroderm deal. Her attorney Alan Wertheimer called the lawsuit an "unjustified and public assault" on her "good name, reputation and celebrity." Her lawyer persuaded a judge in Los Angeles to move the case to arbitration. On September 13, 2009, she finished the Malibu Triathlon (ocean swim, out-and-back bike course, and out-and-back run course) in 2 h 6 min 50.7 s.
  • 1993
    Age 28
    Hatcher made a much-discussed guest appearance on a 1993 episode of Seinfeld, in which her character, Sidra, breaks up with Jerry because she believes that Jerry was trying to have Elaine surreptitiously determine whether Sidra had breast implants. ("They're real... and they're spectacular.") She returned to play Sidra in two subsequent episodes, The Pilot, and The Finale (Part 2).
    More Details Hide Details Hatcher appeared in a series of Radio Shack television commercials alongside NFL player Howie Long. They remain close friends and together have bought farm land on the outskirts of Los Angeles, with the intent of eventually raising endangered species.

    More Details Hide Details At the height of the show's popularity in 1995, a picture of Hatcher wrapped in a Superman cape was reportedly the most downloaded image on the Internet averaging 20,000 downloads each month for a six-month period. "It's a great shot," she told Entertainment Weekly. "Not so much because it's me. It's just cool looking." In "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," the cast was worried that she would be taller than Superman in heels as she was 5'8" and Dean Cain was 6'. ABC cancelled Lois & Clark in 1997. Hatcher won the role of Paris Carver (beating out Monica Bellucci) in the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Hatcher was three months pregnant at the filming's start, by her then husband, Jon Tenney. A publicist said the pregnancy did not affect the production schedule. Hatcher later regretted playing Paris Carver, saying, "It's such an artificial kind of character to be playing that you don't get any special satisfaction from it." She was voted the world's sexiest woman by readers of popular men's magazine FHM in the same year. Hatcher also appeared in films such as Spy Kids (2001), Dead in the Water (1991), 2 Days in the Valley (1996) and The Cool Surface (1994). She co-starred with Alec Baldwin in Heaven's Prisoners (1996), which failed at the box office.
