'Killer Women' premiere: Helfer, Texas Ranger

Tricia Helfer is Molly Parker, Texas Ranger. Bow down, Big Hats, and admire her evening gown.

I definitely had the wrong impression of ABC’s Killer Women, brought to you by Sofia Vergara. Thanks to the series’ aggressive promos, I assumed it might be campy and fun. This is horrible to admit, but I suspect Vergara’s personality and Modern Family character (which seem similar) led me to believe the show might be a caricature of the modern Western drama instead of a solid attempt at it. Ugh, I’m as bad as the rest of ‘em! (Men.) READ FULL STORY

Sofia Vergara's bra racks up 'Machete Kills' body count -- EXCLUSIVE

Well, finally, a Hollywood movie that bends over backwards to give big gun supporters a fair shake.

Yes, that’s Sofía Vergara who – as Lady Desdemona, a femme fatale in Machete Kills – straps herself into a weaponized wardrobe that lifts, separates and mows down rivals.

It’s all from the impact-splatter imagination of Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker who alternates between bloody (Sin City, El Mariachi) and fizzy (four Spy Kids films, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl) without aesthetic shift or ethical distress. READ FULL STORY

Relationships were tested in tonight’s episode of Modern Family.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking, “What else is new?” But unlike previous spats triggered by miscommunication, Claire and Cam were upset with Phil and Mitch because they didn’t believe in them. The two men, who rarely see eye to eye, didn’t think their partners were capable of successfully flipping a house they had stumbled upon. They came to their senses once they saw the abandoned lot that Claire and Cam had transformed into a baseball field for Manny and Luke’s Little League playoffs and ultimately bought the house.

Here are tonight’s five best moments: READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family' react: Cam turns feline, Phil bites like a dog

After our favorite round-headed kid saved a sparse Christmas tree from the forest on A Charlie Brown Christmas, our favorite ball of fur, Cam, did a little tree hugging of his own later that night on this week’s Modern Family. READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family' react: Matthew Broderick and Phil share a boys' night

It’s safe to say that the theme of tonight’s episode of Modern Family was miscommunication. Phil threw a boys’ night that turned into a gay tryst with guest star Matthew Broderick, Claire lied to herself about the importance of Alex winning a scholastic bowl, Mitch overestimated the severity of Jay’s dilemma, Cam ignored his loved ones’ complaints that he’s too controlling, and Manny misread a gaze from a passing girl.

'Modern Family' react: Haley goes to jail, Luke goes to the hospital

Last night’s episode of Modern Family reminded me why I originally fell in love with the series. The triumphant returns of Haley and DeeDee, as well as the mixed family dynamic were just what the doctor ordered. The night was filled both with tender moments and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it comedic gold, making the episode my favorite since the season premiere.

The episode opened with a high note — and loud ring — when Claire got the 3 a.m. phone call that every parent dreads. No one died, but Haley did get arrested. Let’s face it, (as Cam later confides to Lily) it was only a matter of time. This led to a string of calls to the Pritchett-Delgados and Pritchett-Tuckers, who all woke up abruptly and made a mad, frenzied dash to the phone, just like Claire and Phil did. Claire asked Mitch to accompany her and Phil to jail to lend his legal “expertise,” then called her dad to ask about his “judge friend.” The entire opener was amusing, but the scene when Jay got the call from Claire was especially hilarious. Jay told Claire that his “judge friend” died, causing an almost teary Gloria to sympathize with him. “He died five years ago,” he responded, further confusing her. Manny then walked in, already convinced that someone’s death led to the call, and Gloria informed him about Jay’s friend. He also apologized for Jay’s loss. Like mother, like son … READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family' react: Cam wears the pants, Phil channels his inner Fonz at 'Yard Sale'

Unlike most of the other Modern Family episodes this season, a single story arc connected all the characters tonight. The Dunphy-Pritchett-Delgado-Tucker clan gathered for a garage sale to help Manny and Luke raise funds for their school’s charity fundraiser (or help them win a pizza party, as Luke would have it). Haley made a brief appearance via video chat to talk her mom out of selling her belongings, including an autographed John Mayer poster that Phil signed, solidifying her void on the show. I’m eager to see her return home for the holidays and excited for the upcoming introduction of guest star Jason Mantzoukas as her new boyfriend. Her sarcasm is greatly missed.

Jay was also reluctant to give up his possessions, but more concerned with the fact that strangers would be invading his lawn (and his personal space) than the act of parting with personal objects. Cam, on the other hand, was happy to donate six pairs of now ill-fitting jeans for the yard sale. As we learned in last week’s episode, the emotional eater has lost over 30 pounds. He was unable to bask in his glory during the Halloween party and tried to do so today. Mitch — convinced that Cam was going to gain the wight back — pleaded with him to keep the jeans for a future art project (he’s evidently still afraid of hurting Cam’s feelings with the truth). When that didn’t work, he took them back to the car and finally hid them in a bush. Cam eventually confronted him and admitted that he didn’t want to keep the jeans because their presence served as a constant remind of his previous failed long-term weight loss attempts.

Ellen DeGeneres is Sofia Vergara for Halloween -- VIDEO

Ladies and gentlemen, we have the celebrity Halloween costume to beat.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, the Today show canceled its annual Halloween showcase. But Ellen DeGeneres stepped up to the laughter plate today, showing her “cheeky” costume on this afternoon’s episode of Ellen: Sofia Vergara. Specifically, Vergara’s infamous Emmy dress that split open mid-ceremony, revealing (a bit NSFW) more than she bargained for.

“Happy Halloween. As you can see I put my pumpkins out,” DeGeneres said, gesturing to the fake chest spilling out of her dress. Mimicking Vergara’s accent, DeGeneres proceeded to explain that she thought Vergara’s voice was a bit overdone. “I get so much work with this fake accent,” DeGeneres declared.

But never fear that the host was being mean – mid-mocking, the real Vergara showed up, and she couldn’t hold back a smile. Despite trying to look angry, the Modern Family actress got the last laugh: “Your a** looks huge,” Vergara said.
