'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

'Friends' Central Perk: What I saw (and what Gunther told me)

For 10 years, the dream has always been there: What if Central Perk were a real, functioning, undeniably cozy coffee shop? Though real jobs preclude all of us from waxing Bing and spending all day with hazelnut roasts and crullers, any avid Friends watcher has long imagined what it would feel like to set foot in the show’s iconic coffeehouse, if only to feel—just for a second—that the magic of the 10-season sitcom was real.

Well, it’s real, thanks to a new pop-up installation in downtown Manhattan, just minutes from the show’s West Village setting. You can’t miss the store logo on the windows of the renovated SoHo café, or the awnings emblazoned with “Friends 20th Anniversary.” And when you enter the inherently nostalgic space, it’s like 2004 to 2014 never really happened. It’s surreal for a die-hard Friends fanatic like myself—and even more so for the one cast member who has become synonymous with the name Central Perk. READ FULL STORY

'Goosebumps' writer R.L. Stine on fear: 'I've never experienced it'

R.L. Stine doesn’t exactly sympathize with victims in horror movies. “When I go to a movie or something, and the shark jumps up on the screen and eats the girl, I’m the one in the theater who’s laughing,” the Goosebumps author tells EW. “Horror always makes me laugh.”

Something else that makes Stine laugh? Mostly Ghostly: Meet My Ghoulfriend, a film based on Stine’s Mostly Ghostly book series that coms to DVD Sept. 2. In the movie, Max (Ryan Ochoa) plays a teenage boy who’s trying to impress his crush (Bella Thorne) but faces an otherwordly obstacle: The Berserker Ghoul, a ghost that inhabits him every so often and makes him go, well, berserk at inopportune times.

Former child star Jonathan Lipnicki is all grown up in 'You Used To Be Cute'

You-Used-To-Be-Cute.jpg

Once upon a time, Jonathan Lipnicki stole our hearts in Jerry Maguire. Then he grew up.

Like many former child actors, Lipnicki is forever stuck in people’s minds as that one cute kid in that one movie from awhile ago—and those same people are shocked when they find out that, crazily enough, he’s now an adult. Lipnicki pokes fun at this mindset in a new video that shows him auditioning for a role, only to find the casting team comparing him to other former child actors. And, naturally, interrogating him about his (fictional) addiction issues. READ FULL STORY

Chris Pratt shares photo from his homeless days in Hawaii

Before Chris Pratt was Andy on Parks and Recreation, before he was Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, before he was braiding interns’ hair in on-camera interviews, Chris Pratt was homeless — but living in a pretty cool van.

Listen to Anson Mount read a scene from 'The Breakfast Club'

Fans of Anson Mount know him as Bohannon on the AMC Western Hell on Wheels. But they may have also heard that he’s a huge fan of The Breakfast Club. EW had, which is why we asked him to perform a classic Bender-Claire scene with us when he popped by Entertainment Weekly Radio. It’s the best NSFW thing you’ll hear all day.  READ FULL STORY

Listen to the full interview below. READ FULL STORY

Lisa Whelchel doesn't remember 'Facts of Life' lyrics, George Clooney kiss

Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth reunion, move over. The Facts of Life alums Lisa Whelchel (Blair) and Kim Fields (Tootie) have reteamed to play wedding coordinators in a Hallmark Channel original movie, For Better or For Worse, which premieres July 19 at 9 p.m. ET. When Whelchel stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105), EW Morning Live’s Jessica Shaw and Dan Snierson asked her to sing the Facts of Life theme song. And when she failed to remember more lyrics than Shaw, they asked her to compensate by sharing a secret from the set. It turns out George Clooney wasn’t that memorable of a kisser. READ FULL STORY
