'7th Heaven' cast, minus Ruthie, reunites

7TH-HEAVEN

The Camden clan reunited Tuesday night and posted a photo, confirming that it’s still seventh heaven when you see their happy faces smilin’ back at you.

Beverley Mitchell, a.k.a. Lucy, shared a photo of her and her former co-stars gathered around a dinner table on WhoSay with the caption, “Something truly amazing happened last night and my heart is overflowing!”

It wasn’t that amazing, though, because the most important Camden was missing: Ruthie (Mackenzie Rosman) was absent. What’s a Camden gathering without Ruthie (before she became a horrifying teenager) singing “The Star-Spangled Banner“? READ FULL STORY

This 'Scandal' clothing line lets you dress just like Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope knows how to handle just about any situation in the White House, and the same rules apply to the world of fashion. If there’s a problem, Liv will fix it.

And now, Kerry Washington has teamed up with Scandal‘s costume designer, Lyn Paolo, and the head of design for The Limited, Elliot Staples, to create The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal. Fans of the show will know what to expect: Lots of white, lots of jackets, and more than one pair of gloves. But the question remains: Will there be a fashionable (though slightly oversized) white hat in the mix?

'Orange Is the New Black' meets 'Golden Girls' in new mash-up video

GOLDEN-NEW-BLACK.jpg

Orange Is the New Black has often been called the Golden Girls of a new generation. Okay, so it’s never been called that, but thanks to a new theme song mash-up video, we wish it were. Can you imagine if the ladies of Litchfield considered one another pals and confidants? Oh, the things they could talk about over a good cheesecake.

That being said, there is one thing we can all agree on: Red is obviously the Sophia of Litchfield, Big Boo the Dorothy, Morello the Rose, and Nicky the Blanche. As for Piper, she’s easily Rebecca Devereaux, Blanche’s daughter, right? They were both engaged to a man at one point.

Barbra Streisand let Jimmy Fallon (and his impressions) duet with her

Jimmy Fallon clearly loves doing musical impressions, so when he had Barbra Streisand making a rare appearance on The Tonight Show to promote an album of duets, he took the opportunity to be the legendary singer’s partner. Alongside a bemused Babs, Fallon trotted out his Elvis, his Blake Shelton, and his Michael Bublé. During the Shelton section, a rendition of “I’d Want It to Be You,” Streisand tapped Fallon, and declared, “I can hardly tell the difference.” Before moving onto the Bublé she said, “That was actually good.” READ FULL STORY

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Have sex already!

Let’s talk about cooking for a second. Say you’re going to slow-roast a big hunk of meat. What’s the first thing you do? You pick out all the necessary seasonings and throw them in the pot. Then, you add the meat and let it sit for hours. You make sure to give the meat enough time to soak up all the ingredients, never forgetting that it’s there, until it’s time to eat. Then, you put the meat on a platter, cut it open to make sure it’s done, dress it up as necessary, and serve it. Sounds simple, right? Well, the same rules apply to sex scenes in television shows.

First, shows present the given will-they-won’t-they couple or couples with all the necessary ingredients to get fans on board. There are longing glances, small touches, a few kisses, etc. Then, the show lets the couple sit in the background for a bit, allowing the anticipation to build, never forgetting that the couple is there. Then, when the time is right, the couple finally hooks up in a scene that combines everything fans have come to love about said couple. And you know what? It’s pretty delicious.

However, not all shows know what it means to follow a fairly straightforward recipe. And in some cases, variations are acceptable. For example, Gilmore Girls was able to wait four seasons for Luke and Lorelai to kiss, which is a long time to let something simmer. So why did it work? Because Luke and Lorelai were not the centerpiece of the show, or the main dish, if you will. Gilmore Girls was about Rory and Lorelai and the town of Stars Hollow and all of the guys in between.
