Orange is the New Black is the show to be talking about this summer, and its cast is the hottest group of performers in Hollywood. If you’ve been a diehard fan since season one, this is nothing new; you probably feel like a proud relative as you’ve watched this relatively unknown ensemble command the spotlight. They’re winning awards! They’re on late-night TV! They’re riding floats!

Happy 7th of July! While you were busy barbecuing and beaching this weekend, Miley Cyrus was getting inked.
On Thursday Glee‘s Chris Colfer announced his departure from the Fox series. “Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE,” he Tweeted, before adding: “Explanations will come shortly…” Wait, what? Colfer has played fan favorite Kurt Hummel since season 1, and his character was and remains an integral part of the show’s shift to New York. He was never rumored to have drama behind the scenes — unlike costar Naya Rivera who was rumored to have conflict with Lea Michele, and whose future with the show has been called into question multiple times — so surely he’d be a central focus during the show’s sixth and final season.
It’s July 2014, and is there anyone with a higher public approval rating than Pharrell Williams? Over the last 12 months the singer-rapper-producer has gone from being one of the most inventive and respected artists in music circles to a beloved international sensation even your mother can’t resist.
We don’t need an anniversary to remind us of why we love The Notebook. Ten years later it remains one of the most iconic love stories of the 21st century, cherished by pre-teen girls and celebrities alike. Back in 2004, though, studios and moviegoers weren’t as quick to anoint the Nicholas Sparks adaptation as a success.
As Think Like A Man Too continues to rake in money at the box office, we have to ask: Is the sequel to the ensemble film based on Steve Harvey‘s self-help book succeeding because of its commentary on gender and relationships, or its terribly unclever title? When big movies warrant a continuation, the temptation to go for the pun becomes way too real. Puns are fun! People like to laugh! As much as slapping a number on the end of each spin-off can feel like the easy way out, it’s also the least embarrassing way to go.
After an unsettling music video and live performance at the BET Awards, Robin Thicke is still trying to get his lady back. The singer, who announced his separation from wife Paula Patton in February, posted a call out to his longtime love via Instagram this morning — just in case she missed his previous attempts at reconciliation. Because if she’s choosing not to return your calls, texts or emails, a throwback photo will definitely make her come running.
For up-and-coming actors in the ’90s, snagging a guest role on Boy Meets World was like portraying a deranged murderer on Law & Order. The series was a staple on ABC’s TGIF lineup, geared towards adolescent and teenage fans who loyally followed the show’s characters from junior high to college over the course of seven seasons.
Jenny Slate, the former Saturday Night Live star and creator of popular video, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, is having a breakout moment. As stand-up comedian Donna Stern in Obvious Child, Slate’s character bounces back from heartache the way every modern woman does: by meeting a nice, young gentleman at a bar. What comes next is worth the ticket price — and the subject of a recent censorship debate — but her initial contact with Max (Jake Lacy) proves just how fruitful even the silliest of drunken conversations can be.
For some, break-ups force you to deal with returning a box of junk that belongs to your ex or finding a new apartment. For Melanie Griffith, splitting from Antonio Banderas has left her with no choice but to cover the name of the man that has blissfully lived on her right shoulder for years.
